Hi. I have just finished my forth session of deep cleaning because I have bad bone loss, due to this my front teeth have changed shape. The tooth next to my front tooth has turned and left a big gap. The dentist I’m with says the only two options I have are a plate with a single tooth on or a bridge, but again the tooth will still be pulled until the bridge can be fitted. Is there a way of having a veneer, cap or crown on the tooth rather than it be pulled? I do not want a plate. Thank you.

Hello Dr Hughes. My front teeth wobble just a little bit, but on the top of one of them the tooth is a little bit black. I brush my teeth every day I am worried that I will loose my front teeth. I am already extremely paranoid about them and don’t smile at all. I am currently pregnant, and only 23, so I certainly don’t want to loose my teeth. Please can you help?. Also, my front teeth stick out a little. I need help, I have lost quiet a few of my back teeth and I’m really scared of the dentist. Thank you.
Hello Dr Hughes,
I have a question to ask you about one of my bottom teeth and I hope you can help me. Over the past couple of months it has been very sharp and cuts my tongue whenever I slide it across my bottom teeth. The dentist I regularly go to has filed it down to give it a smoother feel, but the sharpness is still constantly there. I also got tooth bonding done after it was filed, and the sharpness is still there. What do you suggest this could be, and what would I be able to do to get rid of this sharpness on my tooth? Thank you for your time.
Hello Dr Moore, I need your help. My top back tooth has just started to disintegrate. Yet, I am off on 2 mission works on Saturday to Africa where it is obviously not advisable to get dental treatment. I doubt I will be able to get any treatment in this country before I go and considering that Monday is a bank holiday – Can you suggest anything that will keep me going? There is no pain at the moment but I’m starting to worry that it will cause long term problem if I don’t get it seen too in time. Thank you for your time.
Hi Dr Hughes. I have noticed that I have a small chip on the enamel at the bottom of my front left tooth. It is only noticeable up close but I can also feel it with my tongue. I have read about teeth being filed down and wondered if this would be a suitable treatment as I am worried that the chip may get bigger or that it may be prone to infection. My two front teeth come down quite a bit lower than the rest of my teeth so I think they could be filed without it looking odd. What do you think I should do? Any advice would be gratefully received. Many thanks.
I Am Very Unhappy With My Teeth And It Has Seriously Affected My Confidence, What Would Be The Best Thing To Do At This Time?Monday, September 16th, 2013
Hello, I was just wondering if I could have some advice. I am 22 years old and my teeth are in a very bad way. I have had many fillings and have holes in my teeth which need to be filled. Recently I have had my wisdom teeth removed along with another tooth. I am very unhappy with my teeth and it has seriously affected my confidence and how I feel about myself. When I was younger I was very depressed and therefore neglected my teeth. I am currently working towards going to university and I feel that this issue will affect my chances in the future. I am really scared of losing all my teeth. I have a 16 month old son and was just wondering what would be the best thing for me to do about this? I don’t have very much money but I do have an NHS exemption. Thank you in advance.
My Teeth Are In Bad Shape Making It Hard To Eat, What Are My Chances Of Having Functioning Upper Teeth In The Future?Wednesday, September 11th, 2013
Hi Mark. My teeth are in really bad shape and it has just started to dawn on me just how severe my situation is. All of my back teeth on the top row have broken down to sporadic spikes and now it is spreading to the front and bottom teeth. This means it is becoming more visible and making it increasing hard to eat. I have long since cut out almost all sugar and do not touch sugary drinks but it is still getting worse. I know that going to the dentist is my only option if I am to salvage any of my teeth but would very much appreciate any advice and information you could give me regarding my chances of having any kind functioning upper teeth again and avoiding further decay of my remaining teeth (as cutting almost all sugar and even fructose hasn’t helped). Thanks a lot.
Hello. I am a sixteen year old and feel absolutely mortified about the state of my teeth. I have never always been a good brusher, and unfortunately am only just realising just how important it is to maintain dental hygiene for making sure I keep healthy teeth. As of a few weeks ago, some of my teeth have become loose, and they are nearly all the front ones, on both the top and bottom. Please could you give me some advice on what a dentist would be able to do to replace the teeth, and give an estimate as to how much it would cost for a course of treatment under the NHS? Thank you.
I am a class-III under-bite patient. I have undergone a procedure recently during which my 4 upper front teeth were removed recently and doctor gave me Zirconia bridge. This was placed onto my two canines by grinding it right down. My dentist suggested to procedure so I thought it would all work out absolutely fine. At first it seemed okay however later I realised that I have done biggest mistake in my life by removing my original teeth.I realise that I cannot get these back so have tried to gain advice. I have consulted many other doctors who are suggesting to go for Jaw surgery for correction and then they can place two implants to support new teeth.
Kindly advise me to take the decision please.
Hello Doctor Hughes, I have been suffering with abscesses in my gum for as long as I can remember I’m only 22 and have about 10 if not more a year…some bigger then others, I have asked my dentist what I can do but haven’t really got any good advice off them. I have had one of my teeth drilled and drained but it keeps refilling. my bottom teeth come away from the gums and cause pain and unpleasent feeling. I brush my teeth twice a day some times more, just can’t take the pain no more and need to do something about them. I have been told to look into veneers but I do like my teeth there not horrible … And do think I am young to have them. Just need help or pushed in the right direction to stop all this pain thank u for taking time to read this.
