Can Anyone Be Sedated and How Much Does it Cost?

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015
Q.

Hi, I’m a very nervous patient looking to be sedated so work can be done. It’s been many years since I’ve been to a dentist for this reason (I’ve had bad experiences) but now I’m in pain. I think I need a good few fillings and one tooth is broken really badly. I also have a wisdom tooth coming up which hasn’t got a lot of room. Can anyone be sedated and what is the price? I feel this is my only option as I am so scared. Many thanks.

Would a Brace Fix My Dental Problems?

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015
Q.

I’ve recently noticed that 1 of my front teeth is longer than the other one and is also slightly wonky, it looks really bad, I feel it will only get worse over time as I am still young. Would a brace fix this? Even though it’s just one tooth that’s the issue, and I think it’s the length as well. Also, the teeth surrounding my 2 big ones at the front are considerably smaller, which again look unnatural. I’ve heard about veneers and bonding, but I was wondering if there are any other options. And the costs of these!
My two front teeth at the bottom are not straight, as in they are growing towards each other and looking like they are pushing against each other. My dentist said it’s because of my wisdom teeth and to see a specialist if I’m concerned. Again, would a brace help here?
Many thanks.

Is My Dentist Giving Me the Right Advice?

Friday, April 24th, 2015
Q.

I am 48 years old and have been told by my dentist today that my front teeth have short roots and I would be in danger in maybe 5 years time of loosing my teeth. He is referring me to a specialist to see about augmenting the front teeth by adding bone cartilage. Can you clarify what he means? I really do not want to have implants as my front teeth are a lovely shape and I want to hold on to them for as long as I can. Also, I had a very deep filling today in my back wisdom tooth. The same dentist told me that it might not take and that I would have to have root canal treatment done if it continues to give me trouble. He also suggested that I have it removed if it does cause continual trouble, as it is an ‘8’ and wouldn’t be seen and its absence wouldn’t effect my jawline. What is your advice on this? Should I bother with root canal to ensure a strong jawline for future years, or just have it removed? It is very far back.Thanks a million.

Can I Replace my First Molars With New Wisdom Teeth?

Thursday, February 12th, 2015
Q.

Hi, can I replace my 1st molar (which is full of amalgam) with new wisdom teeth? I am 18 years old and my second molar is fine. Does such treatment exist? If so could you tell me of a possible price range and whether I need to go to a specialist (or can my normal dentist do the job)? I have a filling on all 4 first molars, will I be able to replace them all with wisdom teeth? Thanks in advance.

My Wisdom Teeth are Causing a Lot of Pain. What Can I Do?

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello,

A few months ago, I went to the dentist as my wisdom teeth were causing a lot of pain. They took x-rays and found out that all four of my wisdom teeth were growing wonky and into the teeth in front. They said as the teeth have not yet broken the gums, there is not anything they can do yet.

Recently, my wisdom teeth have become painful again and is very uncomfortable. I have also notice a gap appearing between my two front teeth which is causing the skin inside my mouth to become sore as it keeps getting caught in the gap and is making sores in my mouth. I don’t know what to do as it is very painful but I do not want to go back to that dentist as they have said they won’t do anything.

Please can you let me know what can be done as I am worried the gap is just going to get bigger and my wisdom teeth more painful.

Thank you.

How Strong are Replacement Teeth, and How Long Should They Last?

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Gambroudes. How strong are replacement teeth? Also, how long are expected to last? I had one of my wisdom teeth replaced, but it came loose and fell out after two years. Now I only eat with the left side of my mouth. I feel very uncomfortable with the tooth missing, what should I do? I feel that I should replace it to enable me feel comfortable and enjoy my meals. I will also want to change my dentist.
I will also want to know how often one needs to visit the dentist so as to take care of the teeth before any problems occur. What is cosmetic teeth surgery? How often should one go for teeth cleaning? Thank you.

I Have Chipped and Broken Teeth. What Can Be Done?

Friday, September 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I have lost one wisdom tooth and another is half broken. Most of my teeth are chipping off and they have holes in them. My dentist has given me a special toothpaste to use but there’s been no improvement since I started using that and all he does with the the second chipped wisdom tooth is fill it with a white paste. I’m only 34 years old and I don’t know what to do, but what can you tell me about this? What is wrong and how can I repair them? Also, how much will it cost please? This is so depressing, I don’t know what to do. Please help and give me some advice. Thank you in advance.

How Much Does It Cost To Have A Wisdom Tooth Removed? My Teeth Are Infected And Need To Be Removed.

Thursday, August 28th, 2014
Q.

How much is it to have a wisdom tooth and the tooth next to it removed? I have this problem now and I can’t wait any longer to have it done. My wisdom tooth has come out at an angle and has pushed against my other tooth creating a hole and the nerve is right next to it. Both teeth are infected I am on antibiotics now and it has been 48 hours of me taking the antibiotics it is causing a lot of pain. I can’t eat or sleep and the pain killers don’t help at all I’m finding it hard to work.

I Have A Problem With My Crown. Could I Remove The Tooth And Use Braces To Fill The Gap In?

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I’ve had a crown for 3 years but although it looks fine I have a problem with it not being real. I’m very good at cleaning and have to floss as it does get food caught and smells even hours later. I have all 32 teeth and this is a lower molar. I wondered is it possible to remove the crown/tooth completely and then have a brace and move the upper molar and wisdom teeth down in that place? Firstly is it possible? Then I’d have no crown to worry about! Please help getting me depressed. Thanks.

I Have Crooked Teeth And I’ve Always Wanted Veneers. Could You Give Me A Rough Idea Of What Treatment Options I’d Need?

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have always wanted veneers for my teeth. They are very crooked and made worse in recent years due to my wisdom teeth (which desperately need removing) I also have a false tooth next to my front teeth on the right hand side. This was a temporary tooth put in when I was 15 (I’m now 27!) as I never grew another tooth on either side. (I can send pictures if necessary). I wanted a rough idea of treatment options and cost to correct my smile and straighten my awful teeth. I would be looking at maybe 6 veneers on the top and 4 along the bottom? I’d probably need them whitening also and any other treatment you think is necessary (such as removal of wisdom teeth). Thanks in advance I very much look forward to your reply.
