Hello Dr Patel. I am 47 years old and I want to have a photograph taken with my family and smile, which I have not been able to do. I would like to know if I can pay on a monthly basis? My top teeth have 2 screws in them them and half of them are broken. I have been told by one dentist that one tooth is badly damaged and when it’s taken out may take up to three months to heal unless I can go private. Could you give me any advice on what treatments I might need? Thank you for your time.

Half Of My Top Set Of Teeth Are Broken. I Want To Smile In Photographs With My Family. Could I Pay For Dental Treatment On A Monthly Basis?Friday, August 15th, 2014
Hello Dr Gambroudes. I recently realised I have really poor teeth and wish to correct them. This is mainly due to my diet and genetics and I’ve fell into the mind set of having all of my teeth replaced with gold veneers as I only have twenty five left. This is because gold is solid and will not scratch easily. Some teeth are missing and others are damaged or rotting away. Do you have any advice on this matter? And can you help me!
I also wish to know how much the procedure will amount to and how it all works so I am in a comfortable frame of mind when entering this process.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.
I Have Left My Teeth Get In A Bad State. I Have A Bad Smell Coming For My Teeth But I’m Too Embarrassed To Go. What Should I Do?Thursday, July 17th, 2014
Hello Mark. Unfortunately I have left my two teeth (second to last upper,and second to last lower) to rot as I have a fear of dentist but now they have started to smell badly, I need to get them both pulled out but I am too embarrassed to go to a dentist. Do you know if there is anyone who specialises in rotten teeth? I have a filling in my lower tooth but it is still in place. The situation is driving me mad. I’m not in pain but the smell is causing me not to speak to anyone as I’m in fear that other people may smell it. Please advise me on what to do.
Hello Dr Moore I can’t afford treatment at the moment and I have broken teeth which need removing. I also need fillings and think I have a abscess. I am missing front teeth that I would like replaced so I can at least talk again never mind smile. I was wondering if you could tell me how I find my nearest dental school and also how I could contact them. Also if all this work could be carried out by students and how much it’s likely to cost. Thanks.
Hello Dr Moore. Just a quick question. My husband and I are going to the Algarve for two weeks, he has been having problems with a tooth at the front, next to the two front teeth.
The dentist informs him it has a crack and needs two root canal treatments, they are unable to fit him in for a appointment before we leave.
Would he be able to get this treatment done while we are there and if so what sort of cost.
I Have Broken My Tooth And The Edge To It Is Really Sharp. Should I Go To The Hospital Or My Dentist?Thursday, July 10th, 2014
Hello Dr Moore. I need to see a dentist as I have broken a tooth and the sharp edge is cutting into my tongue making it painful whenever I eat. It’s a constant throbbing now and has stopped me from eating. Just sitting here hurts. It feels like a knife. Is it worth going to the hospital for this type of problem? I’m a bit scared of going to the dentist after previous bad experiences. What should I do? I look forward to your reply. Thank you in advance.
My question is about using a plastic crown as a permanent solution for a cracked tooth. I have an upper left tooth (#26) that has had a root canal and recently cracked from the surface down into the root. The dentist has said that because the root is cracked they can’t put a post in, and because of that they can’t use a porcelain crown. So far he has cemented the crack, prepared the tooth, and taken imprints to make a plastic crown. He said the plastic crown should last about 5 to 10 years. Everything I’ve read only mentions plastic crowns for very short term use. Does this sound like a reasonable treatment?
I Think Something Is Moving In My Upper Jaw. Do You Think It Could Have Something To Do With My Dental Implant?Tuesday, July 1st, 2014
Hi, I am 48 years old, I have an implant bolted to my upper jaw. I also have bi-lateral cleft palate and lip. I think something is moving in my upper jaw area. This implant was put in when I was a child. I am having a lot of trouble with this, is there any help available for some one like me with out insurance. I feel that if this implant is removed my upper jaw is going to move, I still have opening in the roof of my mouth. I think that it is holding my jaw together. I suffer headaches, ear aches, and the teeth around this are all broken. What do you think I should do? Thank you.
After Cracking A Tooth I Didn’t See The Dentist For A Long Time. Now The Root Canal Treatment Hurts. Is This Normal?Monday, June 30th, 2014
Hi Mark. I am looking for a bit of expert advice as I am a bit weary of the dentist I have been using. I cracked my tooth and left it for a long time. When the pain was too much I went to the dentist and he said I needed to root canal. I have been going to him for the past 3 weeks and he has inserted a rod in one of the canals but not the others yet. I am in constant pain. I am still on my antibiotics but I keep telling him how sore it is and it is like he keeps dismissing me. Is it normal to be in so much pain? Thank you in advance for your reply.
I Have A Clean Chip In One Front Tooth Which Has Left A Huge Gap. Which Treatment Would I Need To Build It Back Up?Monday, June 30th, 2014
Hi there Dr Moore, I have one tooth which is just right of the front in the top set which has a clean chip in it, meaning that its completely flat and is now only coming out all but millimetres, so you can see there is a tooth there but at the same time it leaves a huge gap
would this be able to be built up on or would an implant be the only option? I need something done. I’m just unaware of the different types of treatment available and I’d appreciate your advice. Thank you for your time. It would be great to hear back from you.
