How Can My Uneven Teeth be Treated?

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015
Q.

Hi. I’m 30 years old with uneven teeth, receding gums and lots of gaps. I’m getting really depressed over it, I don’t smile with my mouth open. I would love some advice to make me feel 100% better. It’s been troubling me for years and I would love to feel more confident. So please could you give me some advice or information on what to do? That would be gratefully appreciated and help me come out of myself again. It’s just mainly the fronts of my top and bottom teeth. Thank you.

Is Periodontal Treatment Available on the NHS?

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015
Q.

My daughter, a type 1 diabetic, has been told at hospital she needs a periodontist to help cure her receding gums. She cannot afford private dental treatment as she is unemployed. She smokes too. Are there any periodontal practitioners that practice on the NHS? If not, where do we go from here? She is 30 and afraid of losing her teeth. Her gums have receded a lot, she is careful and cleans them with special brushes. If no NHS treatment is available, what else can she do? Anything she can buy to help at the chemist?

Is There Any Practice In The North Which Does Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation? Or Do I Need To Travel To London?

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I’m very interested in having pinhole gum rejuvenation after seeing it on the web. I have found several practices that do this procedure but they’re all in the south east of the country and I live in the north east. I was wondering if you knew of any one in the North who could carry out this procedure? My gums have receded very badly particularly on my bottom teeth. I do see my own dentist every six months and brush and floss twice a day. I thought it was something I would have to live with until I saw this procedure.

My Gums Are Receding From Over-brushing. I Now Have A Good Oral Health Regime. Is There Any Treatment That Can Help Me?

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel, I’m hoping for some advice. I have very thin gums at the bottom front of my mouth and receding on one tooth. This is due to overbrushing. I now follow a strict oral regime including brushing in small circular motions using a soft bristled toothbrush, flossing and using interdental brushes, at night time and taking vitamin supplements. The thinning and receding is causing me much distress and anxiety. What are my treatment options? Can anything be done about this or should I just continue my regime. Thanks, I hope you can help me with this problem.

I’m About To Lose Two Teeth. I Would Like Some Information On The Options Available To Me. What Can I Have Done?

Monday, January 27th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have got a false tooth glued to my natural tooth and now this is falling out so I will loose 2 teeth right at the front on the top row. What options do would I have to fix this. I do not want a pallet, I have one sturdy tooth left at the side of the one that which is coming out and the other side is bridged. I have private care and I am going tomorrow but I would like some expert advice so I can at least ask the dentist on what choices I have. I am 51 years old and I have looked after my teeth but I have got receding gums. I think this is where the problem lies, I am a smoker and this is probably one of the biggest causes of my problems. Thank you.

I’m Scared I’ll Lose All My Teeth If My Gum Disease Spreads. Can You Help?

Monday, January 6th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, I was just wondering if you could tell me is it true whether I have gum disease or not on my next to last tooth at the back and the top of my mouth is receding really badly and very painful. I’ve been told if I don’t get it out it will most probably spread along to my other teeth and I am really worried I don’t want to lose my teeth but really need to get it out it is so painful. Do you think it will spread to my other teeth? I hope you can give me some advice so I can fix this problem and hopefully prevent it from spreading. Thanks.

I Am 22 And Suffering From Periodontal Disease, Please Help!

Thursday, June 27th, 2013
Q.

Hi, i have periodontitis , i have lost 5 teeth and will soon be losing a few more. I wondered if you could advise me on something please? I am 22 years old and therefore (obviously) very young and would like some advice and how to move forward. I have very little amount of gum and hardly any bone left in the areas where the teeth were taken out from. My dentist has not been very reassuring so i would like to know what i can do to save my remaining teeth and i would like to know of any procedures that are available in my situation. I am currently wearing dentures and have been for the last two years but would like something permanent.I don’t even know how I got into this predicament but it’s really getting me down. Any help will be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Receding Gums And Bad Teeth, Which Implants Should I Go For?

Friday, March 22nd, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr, I am 62 years old and to be blunt my upper teeth have seen better days! I have receding gums and now since having researched on the internet about the ‘all on 4’ dental implants I am now becoming a bit confused as to which is the better option for me, ‘all on 4’, or the 6 implants treatment option that I have seen. This is because some say that 6 implants will support the arch better and last longer. Also I understand that the 6 implants comes with a ceramic arch with zirconia better than acrylic or do you know of any better materials in use currently for constructing the arch. If it is any help to your accuracy in answering my questions I would like to make it clear that I am looking for something that will last for a very long time and look very good.
