My Tooth Is Rotten And Wobbly. Should I Get This Seen To Straight Away Or Wait Till After My Daughter’s Wedding?

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My back tooth is rotten and half fell out years ago. It caused me no discomfort for a long time but now the other half is wobbly and is making me very uncomfortable. What do I do? My daughter is getting married in 2 days and I don’t want to be in pain for that day. The tooth can’t be pulled as I was told a while back my gums need to be cut to get it out. Should I leave it and hope it doesn’t fall out and cause more pain or do I go dentist now? Thanks.

Friday, June 6th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. I had my treatment started in 2006. They told me I had to pay 3500 for 3 bridges I had to be transferred to a hospital dentist whilst they put braces on. I had braces on for 4 years for a gap in the front 2 teeth and since they last tightened them I have a dead nerve. The tooth’s going black and I have a broken back tooth. When they took my braces off I have a bigger gap than I did when I started.  Now they are say they can’t do anything else to them and I don’t know how to get it sorted can you help please? Thank you.

I Had A Tooth Snap Off Weeks Ago. When I’ve Finished With The Antibiotics Do I Go To My Dentist Or The Hospital?

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I had an upper right tooth snap off several weeks ago. It caused me no pain at the time, however in the last few days it has and is causing me serious pain and extreme facial swelling. My GP has prescribed antibiotics but the pain remains regardless. What can I take to try to relieve it? When I have finished the antibiotics do I go to a dentist or hospital? There are still remnants of the tooth in the gum but the pain is awful. I have very little funds and need to know where to turn. Thank you for your reply in advance.

Hi, My Child Has Broken Her Front Tooth. Will It Continue To Grow So It’s Not So Noticeable In The Future?

Friday, April 25th, 2014
Q.

Hi there. I am very anxious as my 2 year old daughter has just chipped a large part of her front tooth yesterday. The dentist this morning said it doesn’t look too bad as she is not in any pain and eating and behaving normally at the moment, but advised an X-ray on Monday morning at King’s.

He did say it may have to be taken out though and this fills me with dread as it’s such a shame for her beautiful smile.

Hopefully it wont have to be extracted. But the question is if it doesn’t, will it still grow a little at this early age and so not be so noticeable over time and can a 2 year old’s tooth be bonded both to make sure surrounding teeth grow in line and of course for the cosmetic reason? Thanks.

I Had A Root Canal On My Front Tooth Last Week And Half Of It Has Slid Out. Will I Be Left With A Gap While The Gum Heals?

Friday, March 21st, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I had my first appointment for root canal treatment last week on one of my front teeth. The dentist was away the coming weeks so booked me in for 3 weeks time to finish off. Recently half the tooth slid out!
I have an appointment with someone else for tomorrow and it’s more than obvious they are going to pull it. My question is once pulled – will I just be left for weeks/months while the gum heals with nothing in its place? I’m so concerned as it’s my front tooth and I’m a 29 year old girl. I’d really like to know what will happen to my tooth.

My Tooth Has Gone And Broke In Two. My Dentist Wanted To Pull It. What Else Can Be Done That Is Relatively Inexpensive?

Monday, February 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I have a problem I would like help with. I have a tooth that gone and broke in two. My dentist was going to pull it, I said no thanks, is there something you can do? He did not pull it and it had decayed when this happened, instead of him pulling the whole tooth he fixed it to where it looks like a real tooth, but told me if I ever have problems with it he would have to pull it out completely. Is there a procedure that can be done without pulling it or getting an implant and it being inexpensive? I have an extreme sideways bite and I have fillings in every tooth almost and I have had them for over 20 years. Sometimes when I eat something they hurt, so what do I need to do?

I Snapped A Tooth Playing Rugby. I’m Worried The Filling Supporting My Broken Tooth Will Break As I Wear Braces. Could This Happen?

Friday, January 31st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, about 1 year ago half of my tooth snapped whilst playing rugby so half of my tooth is made out of filling. Will my braces snap the filling off? I am worried, I have had braces for 1 year already but I fear it will snap off. I hate tooth ache, half the tooth is still there and the brace is on both so not all the pressure is on the filling but I’d just like to know if there’s a chance the filling could snap off during my braces treatment. I hope you can help me to put my mind at rest over this. Thank you.

A Sweet Tooth And Need My Back Teeth Fixing So My Teeth Don’t Bleed When I Brush. How Much Would Treatment Cost?

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, I am 20 years out and I have a very sweet tooth. My smile is my best asset, however what it hides is terrible. I’ve got many fillings and gold crowns and I want them fixed permanently, so my teeth don’t bleed when I brush. Half of one tooth is absent, but my smile, well my front teeth are amazing. The 4 top right teeth at the back need fixing. The 2 middle back teeth at the top left need fixing. 4 on the bottom two either side need fixing also. I’m really worried, how much will it cost? I hope you can help me with this. Thank you.

My Crown On On Of My Molars Has Come Off And There Isn’t Enough To Glue It Back On. What Are My Options?

Thursday, December 12th, 2013
Q.

My crown on one of my molars has come off and there is not enough tooth left to glue it back on. What are my options? My dentist wants to pull it out and to put in an implant. Is that a good answer or is there an other way? The tooth that I have described is worn right to the gum line, is it possible to build it up and re-crown it? The tooth in question does not bother me and it is not sensitive, and most of my teeth have been crowned. My age is 65 and I would like to keep what I have if possible. I have had 4 implants so far and my dentist is wanting to bridge one of the ones he pulled because it was too close to my sinus and I do not have enough bone there to put in an implant.
