How Can I Get My Periodontal Disease Under Control?

Friday, November 4th, 2016
Q.

Please, I need help. I was diagnosed with having advanced periodontal disease when I was in my late 20s and now the bone that supports my teeth is almost nothing. I have already lost a few teeth and all my teeth are loose. I’m 52 years old but feel my life is over. My confidence has diminished, I’m depressed, I’m desperate for help or any advice you could give. I would be most grateful for help.

Are There Any Gum Reconstruction Options to Restore Smile Aesthetics?

Thursday, August 27th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have advanced periodontitis with some bone loss and gum recession. I’ve been reading a lot about LANAP. I’m petrified of scaling and planing and of losing more gum line. My first question is how do I find a certified dentist who performs LANAP? I live in Oxfordshire but can travel, I cannot risk being “ripped off” in any way and want to do my research well. Secondly are there options for bone / gum reconstruction to restore the aesthetics of my smile that I now hide away? Thank you for any advice. Kindest regards.

I Have Severe Periodontal Disease And This Affects My Confidence Greatly. Could You Give Me Advice On Which Steps To Take?

Friday, August 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi, Dr. Gambroudes.  I have severe periodontal disease, most of my teeth are moving and some at the upper front have already shifted. I recently had some treatment from my local dentist and after doing an X-ray, we found out that most of the bones have eroded and it’s not looking good. Ive just started taking Doxycycline to hopefully save my gums. However, I am severely affected with the looks of my teeth and my confidence is absolutely down the drain. I hope you can advice me on what steps I should take.

Thank you.

I Have A Grinding Problem With My Molar. My Dentist Has Advised My To Have It Extracted But I Would Like To Know A Different Solution?

Friday, July 25th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes, I am 47 years old now. I have a chewing or grinding problem with my right 3rd molar. I have pain and sensitivity but no swelling or redness. My dentist advised me to go for extraction as there is grade 2 mobility. Do I really need to have extraction when there is no swelling. Kindly guide me? I am not diabetic or hypertensive.I got flap surgery done 5 years back and till now I have maintained them with proper care. For 6 months now this 3rd molar is not co-operating and it hurts to bite food. Do you know of any other treatment which could help me?

I Am In The Final Few Weeks Of Braces Treatment But My Orthodontist Keeps Putting It Back. What Should I Do?

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I am 61 and have had braces for 3 years following periodontal treatment. My NHS orthodontist sees me every 8 to 10 weeks. My teeth are getting straight and she is closing the gaps. She is closing the gaps but I seem to be going round in circles. After a few weeks it looks like the teeth are finally in place but then other teeth move which shouldn’t. I also think that my appointments are too long in between. Each time I go I am told that in my next visit they will be removed and it’s getting frustrating now. What should I do?

I Had Two Pregnancies Back To Back Which Really Did A Number On My Teeth. Will I Ever Be Able To Get A Beautiful Smile Again?

Monday, February 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello doctor. I had two pregnancies back to back that really did a number on my teeth. I ended up with periodontal disease and I am now paying the price for not paying close attention to it. I have a couple of teeth that are loose and some that I think are going to need root canals, fillings, etc. Can a mouth full of horrible teeth like mine ever be beautiful again? My biggest fear is ending up with dentures or toothless. I look forward to your advice. Thank you.

Can You Tell Me If A Maryland Bridge Is An Effective Way To Cover A Gap In My Smile?

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014
Q.

Hi, I am a 37 year old male with advance stage periodontal disease and my gums have receded. My front lower jaw tooth has been removed, causing a gap. The neighbouring front teeth are weak and also have receded gums. My dentist has given me a removable brace which I find to be very uncomfortable. Is this pain normal when it comes to braces? Can you tell me if Maryland bridge is an option and I if it can cover my front tooth gap in effective way? Are there any other options? Thank you and I looking forward to hear from you.

Hello, I Have Severely Crooked Teeth, But I’m Terrified And Don’t Know Where To Start. Is It Possible To Be Knocked Out For All Appointments?

Friday, November 15th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I am 29 year old female, with severely crooked teeth, heavy smoking has created severely tar stained teeth, recess gums, periodontal problems etc. I had a bad experience and am now terrified of going but my bottom four front teeth are feeling a little loose and my incisors have twisted back from my wisdom teeth beginning to show through, it is destroying my life, but I’m so terrified I don’t know where to start, and can’t really afford major surgeries which I know I need.
What kind of treatment plan would you give if I was a patient of yours and is it possible to be knocked out for all appointments? Thank you x

As A Sufferer Of Periodontal Disease, Do You Know Of Anywhere That Can Provide Treatment At Low Cost?

Monday, October 7th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I have a question to put forward. Do you know if the NHS provides periodontal treatment?

My gums are receding because of this, and my teeth are no longer aligned. My teeth now protrude out of my mouth and I can hardly close them.

I have suffered some bone loss, and I am very desperate find somewhere that can fix my teeth at an affordable amount.

I have also made regular dental check-ups in recent times, but have never been referred to a specialist of any kind.

Where can I obtain treatment at low cost? I really hope you can provide an answer to ease my worries with this matter. Thank you.

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.
