How Can I Help My Wife Get Her Teeth Fixed?

Friday, May 20th, 2016
Q.

Dear Dr Moore, I was wondering if you could advise me on how my wife can become a guinea pig to help have her teeth fixed. 2 years ago my wife had to have many teeth out due to bad dentistry. She was fitted with a denture for top and bottom but had problems with ulcers, this was put down as being a bad fitting plate. My wife had a second lot done and still ends up being very sore and ulcerated, also they have affected her remaining teeth due to being ill fitting again. My wife has since been back to her NHS dentist, explained to them the issues she’s having only to be told yet more teeth may have to be removed and that she maybe allergic to the dentures and that if that the case there’s nothing more they can do. My wife is only 44 and very conscious of her mouth. We were always going for meals and nights out but now she makes excuses to hide herself away, she gets upset if she can’t eat a meal due to having no chewing teeth and her gums being too sore. I am on disability myself with my wife being my carer, my wife will do anything to meet my needs and I myself would love to be able to meet hers, I would love to see her smile a full smile again. I hope you can advise me, kind regards.

Should I Get My Crown Reduced in Size?

Thursday, May 21st, 2015
Q.

My front crown has been coming forward and now leaves ulcers on my bottom lip. My dentist referred me to an orthodontist. I said that I feel the front jaw is moving forward, she said that I would be better trying to reduce size of the crown as braces take a long time. I do have a overhang and also small chin, but I have also noticed I’m starting to spray as I talk and have woken up a couple of times choking, could this all be part of my jaw alignment and can anything be done? I am 51. Thanks.

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.
