The bone used for dental implant treatment has failed, now what?

Monday, August 6th, 2012
Q.

My partner started implant treatment for a front tooth. The implant was put in, but the gum started to deteriate. He has now had a number of bone and gum grafts, but they all fail and now seem to be worse than when it was started.

The gum has been taken from his palette and the front of his mouth, is secured by stitches. After a few days however the gum disapears.

One of the dentists suggested the bone be removed from his chin, as the bone imported isnt working.

The dentist has provided little advice, and we dont know where it will go from here.

Do you have any advice?

Can you recommend a dental expert in Northern England to treat my gum issues?

Monday, August 6th, 2012
Q.

Dr Hughes

Having no previous dental problems I decided to have cosmetic dentistry 2 years ago.

I have had crown lengthening procedure, 10 veneers followed by further surgery on my gum pockets.

I am left in constant discomfort from bleeding, swollen and sorte gums. My gums feel as though they do not fit around my teeth anymore and that I have too much space between the teeth where food accumulates.

I have also had severe bruxing, a jaw disc out of line and incorrect bite. All in all, a mess.

My dental hygiene is excellent. I believe that the preparation on my teeth and surgery was incorrectly carried out.

I went to great lengths to do my due diligence prior to choosing a dentist. My dentist has tried to fix the issues but seems to have exhausted is own knowledge or skills.

I have lost all faith in the dental profession.

Can you recommend an expert in the north of england to diagnose and advice a treatment plan please? Can you suggest possible causes and treatments for the gum issues?

Thank you in advance for reading this.

Yours sincerely.

I had my braces placed in Pakistan but now live in England, how can I get them tightened without having to return to Pakistan?

Monday, August 6th, 2012
Q.

Hi, I just wanted to ask that I have had my braces done in Pakistan on 25th May 2012 and was visiting the dentist every 10 days for a check up, I have been back since 17th June and up until now I haven’t got them checked by any dentist, because my braces have gone loose due to 2 of the braces that have come off the tooth I am worried they will go back into their old position again. Where I am living at the moment in Peterborough my dentist has said to me it is best to go back to who I got them put in from in case anything goes wrong from them. Please could you tell me if their is anything I could do to get them tightened without going back to Pakistan?
Thank you

I had one of my premolars removed and now there is large gap forming between my two front teeth, what can I do to stop this?

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012
Q.

One week ago, I had a bicuspid extracted on my right side. Two days later I woke up to discover a fairly large gap had developed between my two front teeth. It has continued to widen each day. My dentist said that the only way to stop it from getting any bigger is for me to wear a retainer at night. If I want to close it permanently, he said I will need to wear braces.
Yesterday, I went back to have him look at a crown that had been put on a tooth that had root canal several years ago because it was loose. As he was trying to remove the crown, my tooth broke into three pieces and so THAT tooth also had to be extracted.Now, I am very worried about this gap in my teeth. Is there any way to close it up again without going into braces? I am almost 54 years old and have no periodontal disease. Thank you.

I’m suffering from great pain after receiving the Enlighten whitening treatment, when will the pain subside?

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, can you answer my question for me? Just started using enlighten and after only the second day I am getting like electric shock pain in two teeth – one top and one bottom at front. I have never had pain like this before and whilst i expected sensitivity these pains are short but so unbelievably painful. I’ve been rubbing the de-sensitizer toothpaste on these teeth all day in work and it hasn’t stopped these intermittent pains. No one told me this could happen and I went to a dentist that specialises in whitening with a good reputation and paid £500 for this treatment. I don’t know if I can carry on – will it stay the same, get worse and last after treatment – can you help.
thanks

Is it true that because I am epileptic I cannot receive teeth whitening treatment?

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, having considered having a procedure to whiten my teeth done professionally I should like to know is teeth whitening contra-indicated for all people with epilepsy, under all circumstances? I don’t seem to be able to find enough information on why this might be. Is it just with certain anti epileptic medication? Or say to do with photo sensitivity? I would be very grateful if you could provide some clarity in this matter, as I would dearly love to have my teeth professionally whitened but obviously I don’t want to put my health at risk. Thanks in anticipation.

I don’t want to go through any surgical procedures, can orthodontic treatment help me?

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012
Q.

Hi, I was wondering if you could help me? I am 41 and have a very slight underbite. When I bite,my upper and lower teeth align on top of each other unlike, ‘normal’ people where the lower teeth will be behind. I am not able to push my lower jaw back for my teeth to go behind. Is it possible to correct this slight underbite by using braces or any other method that does not involve surgery. I have set aside a budget of £10K to correct this underbite but would prefer not to go through the surgical method.
