Please, I need help. I was diagnosed with having advanced periodontal disease when I was in my late 20s and now the bone that supports my teeth is almost nothing. I have already lost a few teeth and all my teeth are loose. I’m 52 years old but feel my life is over. My confidence has diminished, I’m depressed, I’m desperate for help or any advice you could give. I would be most grateful for help.

Will it be possible to have veneers for my front teeth? I have gum disease problem, lost bone in my jaw and have lost a few teeth so my dentist from the NHS made dentures on the top side of my jaw. It feels weird, I have speech problem and I feel so depressed and not confident. I asked him if at one stage I can have implant, but he said no because I lost bone in my jaw. I am unhappy. How much will it cost me? Thank you.
Hello, it has been around 3-4 years since I had my braces removed. During the time I had braces, one of my front teeth had chipped slightly, however, despite this being visibly apparent to both my regular dentist and orthodontist, nothing was done about it. Now over the past few months, this tooth seems to have chipped even more. My question is, since I am under 18 and in full time education, can this tooth be bonded for free under the NHS? And also, would this then affect my retainers if my tooth is able to be bonded?
I had an apicectomy done in February of last year. My mouth is still swollen and numb. How long does it take before the swelling actually goes away? My lip always feels like I have a fat lip. Some days are worse than others, it effects my speech. If it stays inflamed is there something over the counter I can take to help with the swelling? It still hurts on most days, I can’t eat on that side at all. I had this surgery in February 2015.
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.
I have had severe pain, like neuralgia, in my upper teeth and jaw for a while. The dentist says all X-rays are normal. There is no decay and no seen cracks. My pain is worsening. She said because it is both sides, I am grinding my teeth without realizing and need a mouth guard. I am quite skeptical about this and seek a second opinion.I am in pain all the time and frustrated when told there is nothing wrong with my teeth.
I am 65 years old. Recently I noticed that my gums are receding and also that my top left hand gums are turning blue. Is there anything I can do about this? It’s not painful. I visited my dentist and he says I should monitor it. If it gets worse then he will send me to a specialist. But I am concerned that it might turn into cancer. I did have crowns fitted quite awhile ago and they are slightly loose. Could that be causing this? Please advise. Thank you so much.
My mother, who is 95 (and by the way her maiden is Hughes!) had a lower tooth of her six remaining front teeth break off at the gum line.
She is not in any pain and part of the dentin is seen in the center of where the crown was and not much redness or damage.
My question is: Because she has Alzheimer’s and is 95, would it be better to let the gum tissue grow over the hole left if it can, instead of pulling it and causing perhaps unnecessary trauma or worse to my mom’s health?
Hi my four front teeth were pushed sideways and back in a fall 3 weeks ago and the 2 front teeth are broken.The dentist at hospital pushed them back as best he could and braced them but they are very painful and not in the right place.I am really concerned about them and would like them removed and a partial or bridge fitted. I am 57 years old and this has affected me more than I thought. I am registered with a local private practice.
Dear Sir. My teeth are coming forward and they hit my lower lip and makes marks on it. Because of this my lips are also coming outward. It also creates a problem with speaking as my voice do not get clear and I feel problems when speaking continuously. I also feel odd whenever I speak. When I laugh my teeth come out, which makes me feel bad. I asked the dentist, he told me it could cost nearly £25000 and will take 1 year or more. Do you have any suggestions as to what I can do?
