As A 60 Year Old, Is Gum Recession Something I Must Live With?

Thursday, May 16th, 2013
Q.

Hi
I have had recently some gum problems
I am coming up to 60 years old next birthday and although i do not have any problems with my teeth i do have some gum shrinking at the bottom front part of my mouth,
is this a common problem or is there something i could have done as although it does not cause me any pain it is quite a uncomfortable feeling in my mouth?

I have had cleaning work done on my teeth but no gum work done as yet. I have read a little about gum recession and shrinking but obviously directly asking an expert like yourself would prove more beneficial.

Can A Dental Hygienist Refuse To Treat Patients With HIV?

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013
Q.

Hi there, I was wondering if you could please help me with something? Can a DENTAL HYGIENIST refuse to treat a patient with HIV in uk?
I know a dentist cannot refuse treatment but how does it work with a Hygienist?

I have seen a dentist who has referred me to a hygienist (it was after seeing dentist) I was then asked to fill in medical form whilst seeing the dentist I wasn’t asked about any medical issues. I was only asked about any allergies. Should i say something to my hygienist? I just don’t know how it works and I would like to be 100% certain everything is okay. I feel like because nothing like that was ask that it’s fine? Surely they’ll have my condition on record after being referred from the dentist maybe? If you can provide me with some advise that would be great! Thank you in advance, regards.

My Whitening Treatments Aren’t Working, What Should I Do?

Friday, May 10th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr, my problem is one of a cosmetic nature. I have recently done both in house and in office teeth whitening but there is no noticeable result
After a consultation with the dentist, I was given a pack of evolution3 home kit of 10 and 16% carbide peroxide which I used at home for two weeks with a custom made tray sent to me by the dentist. At the end of the second week, I went to the clinic for the in office whitening. In the office, an application of another higher % of gel was administered with my customer tray for about 30 minutes and that was it. I noticed that my teeth were still the same colour. This has frustrated me somewhat to be perfectly honest as there is still no noticeable result.

Should We Extract My Daughter’s Erupted Canines?

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013
Q.

My 14 year old daughter’s two upper canines have erupted to full size in front and above the lateral incisors. All other teeth, on both sides of the upper arch, (central incisors through to premolars and molars) are well aligned with no gaps. Is it best to extract the canines, or extract the premolars and pull the canines into the spaces? The canines are bigger than the premolars, so would be a tight fit, and they would have to travel a long distance presenting a risk that good alignment would not be achieved. Extracting the canines would seem the simplest option with all other teeth being OK. But is it OK to lose these important teeth?

Can You Help Me With My Speech Impediment?

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013
Q.

Hello, I am 30 years old and have had a speech impediment my entire life, mainly G’s, J’s, ish sounds. I was discharged from speech therapy at 5 being told the problem was the shape of my jaw and teeth, and therapy would not help me. I have no overbite or underbite, my teeth just bang together. I cannot extend my top row of teeth to protrude over my bottom row, it’s impossible. Many of my teeth are misshapen. I can’t get on in life because of it, I never smile and never dare say words I know I can’t. I can’t even say my wife’s name, Angela. Ever heard of this before, is there a cure through dentist work? Unfortunately I have to rely on NHS funding and as such need to know if I will even get help with a procedure this size. Anyway, sorry the long rambling, first time I’ve ever asked for advice. PS not a single dentist has ever said anything about any misalignment, jaw/tooth shape problem, but I’ve never told them either. I think it’s not an apparent connection unless I speak words with my problem sounds. Thank you very much for your time, and any input or advice will be immensely appreciated.

My Veneers Have A Gap Between Them And The Gum Line, Can I Get Free Treatment?

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013
Q.

Hi I have veneers on my top front 4 teeth, my gums are receding as I’m now 44, the veneers are showing a gap at the top, I’m a single parent with no savings & am unable to work as I am a carer for my elderly mum
When I was young I had several traumatic experiences at the dentist,so I didn’t go as often as I should & never looked after them properly – all that considering they’re not that bad – what I would like to do is whiten my teeth & have my veneers replaced, I never have photos taken as I hate my teeth – I have asked my dentist if I can have the veneers replaced & I’ll pay for the whitening, but apparently it’s not possible on the NHS as its cosmetic – is they’re anywhere I could be used to be practiced on, without paying? Or are there any other solutions? I am desperate – luckily my 2 teenage children have beautiful teeth & no fear of the dentist! Please help.

The Molars On My Right Side Have Been Extracted Leaving Me With A Gap in my Smile, What Can Be Done?

Friday, March 15th, 2013
Q.

I have had another one of my upper molars removed around last October sometime. I have had all my wisdom teeth removed in the past due to extreme discomfort and agonising pain and all my number 3 molars were removed for braces during orthodontic treatment when I was young. I only have 1 molar on my upper jaw and on my bottom jaw I only have one molar left as well. This is all on my right side of the mouth and it is making me a little worried and distressed. The left side is all okay so it is kind of out of proportion. The main issue being when I smile you can see a small gap. Now this might not seem like such a big problem but it is starting to affect me mentally  I was wondering what the best procedure would be to replace this?
