i have vertical crack on my 18 molar is efficacy of bonded and nonbonded amalgam be an alternative

Friday, June 19th, 2009
Q.
My dentist said I have a vertical crack on my #18 molar. It runs from the top to the gumline down the middle on the back of the tooth. I don’t feel any pain. Sometimes I feel sensitivity when I chew something. I don’t like the idea of a root canal and crown and I did research and found this article: EFFICACY OF BONDED AND NONBONDED AMALGAM IN THE TREATMENT OF TEETH WITH INCOMPLETE FRACTURES Would this be an alternative. It seems like it would entail less removal of material if a dentist could just used an adhesive bonded restorative material like amalgam or other metal.

im considering a night guard how much do they cost and how can a dentist fix cracked tooth?

Monday, May 25th, 2009
Q.
Dear Dr. Bohara, I think I have pretty good oral health but I’m considering a nightguard because I occasionally grind my teeth. I was curious how much they cost? I think I sometimes clench my teeth during the day and I have a slight overbite. I think I may have slightly cracked one of my front teeth as a result of this. I’ve looked in the mirror and did not notice any crack whatsoever nor do I feel any pain to pressure or sensitivity to hot or cold but I feel there may be a crack in the back of the tooth. I’m pretty sure of it. If there is a crack, how can the dentist fix it? Would he drill it out and replace it with some resin or composite or place a veneer on it? I don’t think it’s too serious as it’s not causing me any pain but it is annoying and I can sense it with my breath when I exhale. Can you please help me by offering me some suggestions or peace of mind? If the crack is in the center of the tooth can the dentist still treat it? Thank you very much for any response. Sincerely

i cant really see any point in having damaged and crocked tooth can i have implants done

Thursday, May 21st, 2009
Q.
Hi Dr Moore. I had a rather freakish accident on christmas eve a couple of years ago where a shoe from a collegue of mine ended up smashing into my front teeth from very close range. This resulted in the damaging and loosening (almost knocking out) of one of my 2 central teeth in my upper jaw. I had emergency dental treatment at the hospital where the loose tooth was attached to its neighbour and allowed to heal naturally. Unfortunately and unsurprisingly this now means that the tooth is crocked. Moreover the tooth became infected started to die. Since then i have had a root filling carried out by my local dentist. On a recent visit to the dentist i conplained that the tooth was again becoming uncomfortable and the dentist informed me that the filling had failed as the infection had returned and the root was wasting away. He told me that the best thing to do was to see a specialist privately (i’m an NHS patient currently) and have another root filling. My problem with this is that i can’t really see any point in having a damaged, crocked and TWICE capped tooth filled only for it to not look very nice. I have in the past had both my central upper teeth capped and have been looking into having both these teeth replaced with implants. The trouble is that it seems to be a mine field when it comes to cost, proceedure and healing time. Could you please shead some light on this for me? Many thanks,

my husband has brown discoloured teeth and they are crooked what could be done

Thursday, May 21st, 2009
Q.
My husband (age 51) has brown, discoloured teeth. They are crooked. Some back teeth missing. He eats slowly because of the lack of some teeth! I just wondered what could be done to make his teeth look great? I suppose the cost could not be estimated without actually seeing him but is there an option for monthly payment scheme? (He does Bupa cover, however, I do not know what dental treament they cover apart from wisdom tooth removal).

Q.
Hi please help me,I HATE my teeth.I was born with a cleft lip and pallate so as you can imagin my teeth are in a real sate,They have gaps and chips in them are crooked and discoulerd.My bite is also way out of line. I realy want to be able to smile again,have pictures taken with my son and go out with my friends without wearing a scalf over my face. I have asked my dentist to take them all out and give me dentures,but he said he wouldnt recommend it as the way my mouth is(i have had bone grafts etc) he doesnt think that i will be able to hold them. There must be something i can have done. I dont have much money but am willing to do what i can do be able to afford to have something done to them(finance is not an option for me) All i want is to be able to smile at people most importantley my son and to have the confidence to be able to go out without my scalfs.

Monday, May 18th, 2009
Q.
Since having my son 6 years ago i have lost a few teeth and a lot have crumbled or are crumbling and leaving very unsightly gaps. i want to get a nice smile back but am unsure in how to go about it and what procedure to take. i have seen many dentists and have just been told that it may be best removing them if they get worse. can you offer me any advise on what would be the best thing to do as it is getting to the point where i just keep trying to cover my mouth up so no-one can see my teeth. thankyou very much for you time.

I have crooked yellow teeth that are cracking and falling out would dentures be an option

Monday, May 11th, 2009
Q.
Hi. I have crooked yellow teeth that are cracking and falling out and every tooth is decayed. I’m 32 years old and never had an attractive smile, and its terribly embarrassing. Id like to know if you feel dentures would be an option for me as implants are too expensive. Thank you.

i cracked one of my front teeth would the dentist drill it out and replace it with composite

Monday, May 11th, 2009
Q.
Dear Dr. Tennet, I feel I have pretty good oral health however, I do grind my teeth occasionally and sometimes clench them during the day. recently, I think I cracked one of my front teeth. I think the crack occurred in the back of the tooth. I don’t think it’s serious because I can’t see it and it doesn’t cause me any pain or great sensitivity to hot or cold but I notice it when I exhale. Can this be treated and if so, how? Would the dentist drill it out and replace the crack with some sort of composite or resin? If the crack is in the center of the tooth, would he do the same. I appreciate any response. Thank you so much.

my 1 year old son front top teeth looks as it it is cracked is this anything i should get looked at

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009
Q.
My son is just over a year old. One of his front top teeth looks as if it is craked or like it’s two teeth growing in instead of just one. Is this anything I should get looked at or is it too early? It doesn’t seem painful so it must not be craked I imagine.
