How Long Does it Take to Recover from An Apicectomy?

Friday, July 22nd, 2016
Q.

I had an apicectomy done in February of last year. My mouth is still swollen and numb. How long does it take before the swelling actually goes away? My lip always feels like I have a fat lip. Some days are worse than others, it effects my speech. If it stays inflamed is there something over the counter I can take to help with the swelling? It still hurts on most days, I can’t eat on that side at all. I had this surgery in February 2015.

My Mother Has a Hole in Her Gum. What Can We Do to Help Her?

Thursday, September 11th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I am from Nepal and am sending in a question on behalf of my mother. My mother has developed a hole in the end of her gums recently.

It is swollen and she is suffering from a fever.

She is forty years old. Is this problem serious or is it a minor problem? Should we take her to a dental specialist or to a mouth specialist or even a hospital?

We are confused, so please help us. It’s causing her a lot of pain and she is not able to open her mouth.

I would really appreciate your kindness in offering some advice so we know what to do.
We really want to make the right decision for her. Thank you.

My Wisdom Tooth Is Very Brittle But I’m Scared Of What Will Happen. What Should I Do?

Thursday, June 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I have a wisdom tooth on the left of my jaw. It is quite broken and parts of it are down to the gum-line. It has a hole in the middle where my filing has fallen out and it is very brittle and breaks a lot. I’m currently in a lot of pain with it and need to visit the dentist but I’m very scared of the dentist. What will happen? Will it be painful? Will they have to pull my tooth out and as I’m scared it will hurt will they be able to give me anything? I hope you can help me understand what will happen. Thank you.

My Dad Is Suffering From TMJ, Is Surgery The Only Option?

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013
Q.

Hello sir,
my dad aged 68 is suffering from TMJ. We have tried almost most of the suggested treatments except surgery. He is not able take anything other than liquids. He has severe locking/ unlocking problem both jaws and unable to close mouth easily. This is knocking his confidence. Also, mouth keeps opening up…..we are being suggested that only surgery can help. Could you please suggest if this is treatable and if yes, how much would it cost please? He is not a resident of UK. Any information you can provide on the matter would be greatly appreciated as it is severely affecting not only him but his family also.

Q.

I have had a root canal done 2/26/13 on a bottom rear molar # 31,how long does the pain last from the root canal and I was told to chew on opposite side soft foods until my restoration,prior to that that regular dentist said I would need a appointment in two or three weeks to finish the restoration (crown),now Im told I cannot get a appointment till April with permanent crown finished in May.Is that to long to wait with a temporary white filling that is used ?? I am very sensitive to pain and have high anxiety with dental work.

Should I Get My Eroded Teeth Crowned?

Friday, May 17th, 2013
Q.

i am 38 years old. i have overbite problem, what is worse is that now my lower teeth have started eroding due to the problem. There is also acute sensitivity to temperature fluctuations which is very uncomfortable. Another major issue is that often when i am chewing my food there is quite severe pain which again is horrible. Doctors have advised me to go for crowning. Please tell me whether you think that this is the correct course of action. Presenlty i am in kashmir. Where I can go for it safely in kashmi? How much will it cost to crown with good material in kashmir? Does it require a specialist? Sorry for all the questions but I really need to get this sorted out. Thank you.

I also have fractured my tooth by grinding my teeth. I would like to know if there is any hope in trying to sort my teeth and what your opinion would be.

As I have aged, I have suffered from painful clusters of mouth ulcers, what could be the cause of this?

Thursday, February 14th, 2013
Q.

Hello Doctor Patel, I’m 22 and I think that I might have a dental condition that I hope you can fix. Ever since I can remember I have suffered from mouth ulcers. When I was younger I didn’t used to get that many, maybe once every 4-5 months. But as I have gotten older, they have got worse. Once I get one, Its like they spread and I get at least another 4 around the area. They are incredibly painful and they take around 3-4 weeks to heal. I get around 3 weeks without one and then they come back. It’s so annoying and they’re so painful. Do you think there is anything that could be done to fix this, My teeth seem in good health to me but I’m sure there must be something else going on. Thank you.

Would the most cost effective option for me be a lower denture?

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012
Q.

Hi, I am in need of some direction. First off, I do not have insurance and have maxed out my care credit card. I had my lower left second premolar and first and second molars removed a while ago due to not being able to afford any dental care. Well not my top teeth are growing into my gums where I have no teeth and its painful. What would be my best, inexpensive option? Should I have the bottom teeth pulled get a lower denture? thank you for your time doctor hughes

Is my dentist right in recommending that I have my tooth removed?

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes,
I have had a root canal filling and a crown put on one of my teeth (upper side) about 10 years ago. It had given me no trouble till about 2 months ago when I bit on some hard nuts and I got a dental abscess. I had severe pain and swelling of the face. With antibiotics it cleared up and I have had no problems since then, but my dentitst says I should remove it. I am hesitant as it is not giving me any trouble and I don’t intend to bite anything that hard ever again. Also I have never had a tooth removed before. Please advise if it needs to be removed. thanks,
