What Should I Do If I’ve Cracked The Post Of My Crown

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Hi Dr. Moore
I had a crown fitted with post (a short post, apparently) some seven years ago on my large upper front incisor.
I recently bit down hard on a tiny piece of chicken bone (not knowingly!), suffering pain and very slight forward displacement of tooth.
Visited local walk in Teaching Hospital and X-Ray showed that the post was broken, with the crown intact.
There is slight movement to tooth, no constant pain and no signs of infection.
My questions;
1. Is it possible to replace post and/or crown
2. Will I lose the tooth
3. What are the chances of infection and further damage
4. What are my options

Has My Dentist Filed My Tooth Too Much?

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Hello I recently chipped my front tooth On thurs. I went to a dentist on Friday. My chipped tooth was bonded with a white filling and then filed. I have noticed that my front teeth are now not the same length as they were previously. The newly filled tooth is a shorter length is this normal? Or Did the dentist file the tooth too much?
Now I’m conscious of my two front teeth not being level. Is there anything I can do? Can white filing be added to make the teeth the
same length ?

I take pride in my teeth and was always proud of my teeth when I smile, now because of this I feel I cannot have a confident smile as before. I would be extememly grateful if you could answer my questions and let me know what you recommend I should do. Should I go back to the dentist who was not my usual dentist but I went because I could not get an earlier appointmentwith my main dentist.

Where Can I Find A Good Dentist In Cardiff?

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Hi Dr.Andrew Moore, I am suffering with chronic tmj at the moment and awaiting a splint. Is there a really good dentist that you could recommend in the Cardiff or Vale of Glamorgan area that can help me as I am unable to eat properly now. I have been doing loads of reading as I await an emergency dentist. I never realised what was happening to me over the years and I hope I can sort it asap. I have had this chronic problem since my wisdom teeth arrived and were removed 24 years ago and I know there are treatments that raise the height of the bite that aid in jaw movement. I am on the NHS waiting list but it is proving to be so long and I am in agony as my hearing is going and everyday is geting harder to bear.
Hope you can help. any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to reading your response. Thank you
