Do I Need Specialist Treatment for Tooth Removal?

Friday, July 22nd, 2016
Q.

Hi, my teeth are in a terrible state. I think I need all of them out due to either being rotten or severe gum recession, where if they don’t get taken out they will fall out as my front bottom teeth are not meeting the gums now at the back. I have not been to the dentist for years and even when I was in agony with a rotten tooth I did not go and everything just got worse. Every time I try brushing my teeth the blood flows freely. I am very depressed about this and it just spirals by being ashamed about it.

I need specialist treatment for the removal of teeth, as well as gum recession dentures.

Please help.

Should We Still Go Ahead with My Daughter’s Tooth Extractions?

Friday, May 20th, 2016
Q.

 My daughter aged 13 was just diagnosed with Bell’s palsy. She has braces and has a scheduled appointment to have two teeth extracted to make room for more. I am wondering if she should continue with the appointment and the extractions due to the Bell’s? Will extracting teeth make her Bell’s worse? Please help if you can. Sincerely a very worried mom. She has had a rough time as it is and I don’t want to make it worse for her, but I also don’t want to prolong the years of the braces that she has to wear. Your help or insight would be greatly appreciated.

How Much Would Dental Implants Cost?

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I’m really upset about my teeth, as in constantly thinking and being upset about them. I don’t feel like myself at all. I’m quiet young still, and have had quiet a lot of work in the past. I recently got told I’m going to lose one of my teeth, which really has upset me and I cant stop thinking about it. I also need root canal but they said even if they do root canal they might not be able to save the tooth because it’s really infected. I’ve had crowns in the past. I will also need fillings in a couple of my teeth. Now I don’t know what to do. The cost is going to be so much and I don’t know what to do. Even if I get the problem sorted my teeth will still look horrid. I don’t know what my options are. What is best to do because I’m feeling very stuck and trapped. I think I’m going to need dental implants inside my mouth. How much would that cost? Thank you.

Can I Have My Teeth Corrected Without Extraction?

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I have just finished my forth session of deep cleaning because I have bad bone loss, due to this my front teeth have changed shape. The tooth next to my front tooth has turned and left a big gap. The dentist I’m with says the only two options I have are a plate with a single tooth on or a bridge, but again the tooth will still be pulled until the bridge can be fitted. Is there a way of having a veneer, cap or crown on the tooth rather than it be pulled? I do not want a plate. Thank you.

Where Can I Go for Orthodontic Treatment?

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015
Q.

Hello. I started to visit a dentist about year and a half ago and was told I had to go into hospital to have a tooth out before starting orthodontic treatment. Since I had this tooth removed, I’ve got no further with starting treatment and have just been pushed from pillar to post, visiting 3-4 different dentists and paying for consultations and x-rays but getting no further. I’m 44 years old and don’t want go leave it too late. I really hope you can help me or advise me about where I can go. It’s been quite upsetting time as i feel no one wants too help me. I’ve got a big family wedding in two and a half years time, so I would really like to start treatment as soon as possible. Thank you.

I Would Like To Know How Soon I Should Get A Referral For A Dental Implant After Having A Tooth Extracted?

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have just had my lower 6 removed today with a great deal of drilling and discomfort and it’s still bleeding 6 hours later. This is following several failed attempts at a root canal to make ready for a crown. That treatment started in May 2013! Once again I had toothache last week and again over the weekend so asked them for an extraction today. I heal very quickly, my dentist was surprised how fast I healed when my wisdom teeth were extracted. I’d like to know how soon I should get a referral for an implant? My dentist said to wait 4 months before doing anything but I wondered if sooner would be beneficial?

Many thanks.

Can a Healthy Tooth be Pulled and Replaced with an Artificial One?

Friday, September 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi,
I have completely straight teeth, except for one canine tooth that took too long to come back in after my baby teeth fell out and didn’t have enough room to come down – it is raised and protruding. I can’t afford braces and am getting married next summer. I refuse to show my teeth when I smile, especially for pictures, because of it. I asked the dentist/orthodontist about extraction but they acted like it wasn’t an option because of that being an important tooth. Can’t the tooth be pulled and a false tooth be somehow permanently placed in the space where this tooth should’ve been? It doesn’t seem right that braces could be the only option for one tooth.

I Have Been Offered Two Different Brace Treatment Types And I’m Not Sure Which To Choose?

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi. I’m getting invisible braces soon and the dentist has offered 2 types. One is the fast braces system and the other involves tooth removal & this is the one I’m not sure of & would like your opinion on please. I had a canine removed years ago (it was above the gum & next 2 teeth joined so dentist just removed it) the dentist doing my braces wants to remove the other canine as he’s saying I now have an extra tooth & it won’t look symmetrical. I’m not sure I want this though as it’s a perfectly healthy tooth & I don’t want to be left with big gaps. Do you think this sounds right? I hope you can help me by offering some advice. Thank you.

I Am Very Scared Of The Dentists. All My Dentist Wants To Do Is Extract My Teeth. What Can Be Done For Me?

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I am very scared of dentists, and at the moment my teeth just seem to be getting worse, it all started when I had my first child, but now my dentist just seems to want to pull them out, I have offered to pay for crowns or anything they can do for me not losing any more teeth as I don’t like the little pallet I have in, I just want my smile back and not to be so scared of seeing the dentist. I really hope you can you help me.

I Need My Lower Wisdom Tooth Removed.

Monday, August 19th, 2013
Q.

Hello,

I would like to have my lower wisdom teeth removed as soon as possible, as they are causing me a lot of discomfort as they grow through. They have been flaring up off and on for over a year, give me jaw stiffness, headaches, pain, and the inability to close my mouth properly.

My two top wisdom teeth are growing through with minimal problems (minus the normal pain experienced when initially growing through), however the bottom two do not have any space to come through and are as such giving me a lot of grief.

I have the option to go through the NHS but as I have recently changed dentists, I need to go back 3 times before I can be referred.

How much would it cost to have them removed privately under general an and how long is the usual wait for this type of procedure? (I live in Essex and work daily in London.)

Thanks.
