Is There Any Way I Can Get Dental Help For My Boyfriend Without It Breaking The Bank?

Monday, July 28th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I have been up for a few hours such searching the internet looking for ways to get low cost dental care for my fiancé. His teeth are so bad and his breath is worse. He wasn’t taught properly about hygiene so they are not taken care of.  I want to marry him when his confidence is high. I want to be able to kiss him finally and not have to stop him to go rinse with mouthwash, even then it doesn’t always work. Something is wrong and he needs help. Financially we can’t swing the cost. Do you have any advice for us? I don’t want to lose him, but I am having a harder time getting past the teeth. Especially when we get married. His teeth should match his awesome personality. Thanks.

I Brush, Floss And Use Mouthwash Regularly But My Remaining Teeth Are Coming Loose. What Can I Do?

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I worry a lot over my teeth. I brush, floss and use mouthwash regularly. I have a denture on the top and I’ve a partial denture on the bottom set but some of the teeth that are left, I seem to be losing. I also have black gums at the top of bridge on the gums. I’m looking into giving up smoking but have started to cut down. What can I do? I’m scared the teeth I have will fall out. My bottom denture is fine on its my own but the two teeth in the middle that are becoming loose. Do you have any advice for me? Thank you.

I’ve Had A Composite Filling And Now I Suffer From Sensitivity. Is This Normal?

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I have had a composite filling along and below the gum line of my bottom back molar as the gum has receded.  Since having had this done I’ve suffered with high sensitivity so now can’t even use mouthwash as it is hyper-sensitive. Is this normal with this type of treatment? I’m worried about brushing it as it’s already fallen out four times and every time I go back, the dentist is having to grind a bit more of my tooth in order for the filling to stick. I’d really like some help with this. Thank you for your time.

I Went To My Dentist And They Said I Have A BP Score Of 3. How Can I Improve The Health Of My Gums?

Friday, January 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I’ve been to see my dentist today for a check up and teeth cleaning. I noticed he mentioned BP to his assistant and she replied “some 3 but mostly 2” Does this mean my gums are getting worse as 6 months ago I was all 2s. I do use mouthwash, mostly ones that are intended for sore or bleeding gums but don’t always brush twice a day or floss. Also is there anything you could suggest please to improve the health of my gums if it means they are becoming worse?

My Gums Started Bleeding Recently, I Want To Know How Long It Takes Each Stage Of Gum Disease To Take Hold?

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Moore. About a month ago now, I noticed that my gums began bleeding after brushing. This kept happening for around a week or so. I visited my dentist and he gave me antibiotics. I will see him in four weeks from now.

I have also now started using the recommended mouthwash. My question is how long does it take to go from minor gingivitis to periodontal disease? Approx how long would it take to get to that stage if unchecked?

P.s if you are at periodontitis stage, can this alter your face?

What are the tell tell signs that distinguish each stage? Thank you in advance for your consideration.

I’m Pretty Sure I May Have Gingivitis, As Whenever I Brush My Gums Tend To Bleed, What Mouthwash Can I Buy To Fix This?

Friday, September 27th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes, I’m worried because I’m pretty sure that I might have gingivitis. My gums are always slightly bleeding and I can NEVER brush my teeth without seeing “pink” in the sink and to make matters worse, what used to be a tiny gap has gotten bigger and one tooth seems to be growing outward. What is your advice on this? Who can seriously afford braces in this economy and is there any Drug store medicine besides mouthwash that would rid me of the bleeding gums once and for all? Please doctor, help me.

My mother has burning gums after using Corsodyl mouthwash too often and for too long. Can you help?

Monday, November 26th, 2012
Q.

Dear Dr Kalpesh,

My mum had serious effect of excessive use of the mouthwash. She used this mouthwash called Corsodyl Mouthwash for almost 4 months. She used it 4 times in a day with at least 25-30 min at a time until she realised the change in her gums and teethes.
Now she has burning sensation almost all the time and it grows up efficiently if she had any high sugar containing foods. There is some colour change in the lower part of her tongue as well.
Could you please give me some suggestion, how these things could be cured and what major things does she need to do in order to have healthy gums and teeth back.
Thank you.

Is my change of mouthwash the reason behind my white tongue?

Friday, June 3rd, 2011
Q.

I have a slightly loose lower molar which is not painful but affects the bite and seems to have abraded the edge of my tongue. My dentist recently performed de-scaling and deep cleaning and suggested leaving it for a few months in anticipation that healing would tighten it up again. He advised me to use corsodyl for 2 weeks, in addition to my usual brushing (oral b 9000, bicarb paste) and flossing (waterpik) regime.
A few days later, whilst on holiday in Wales, I was unable to obtain corsodyl so I tried listerine cool mint instead. This produced an uncomfortable burning sensation, followed by change of taste and an astringent-like sensation when tasting wine, fruits or cheeses, coupled with a dry-mouth feeling despite normal saliva flows. I stopped using the listerine after 2 days but the uncomfortable sensation remained. Two days later my tongue showed white spots, particularly adjacent to the loose molar and a local pharmacist diagnosed oral thrush. After 5 days of daktarin oral gel there was no significant improvement and so I visited a dentist, who confirmed thrush and prescribed Nistan. I have almost completed a 7-day course and although there has been some improvement I am still not symptom-free. I shall, of course, visit my own dentist or GP after this vacation, but is it likely that the loose molar is acting like an ill-fitting denture and initiating/prolonging the thrush? Am I not diabetic, have not taken antibiotics or any other medication and (as far as I know) am not immuno-suppressed, being generally in good health with fast-healing wounds. Thank you in anticipation of your kind advice.
