How viable will my bridge be if it is attached to a cracked molar?

Friday, March 18th, 2011
Q.

My last lower molar is cracked through and I have a missing molar next to it. I have been advised to have a bridge to attach to the cracked molar with a pontic to bridge the gap and the bridge to attach to the next tooth in which has been filled twice. Is it likely that the bridge will be viable and give longevity given the fact that the anchor molar is cracked?

I have a tooth ache, could I have something wrong with my spleen?

Friday, March 4th, 2011
Q.

I have a toothache in my bottom molar, no 6 on my left. I assumend something was rotten and rushed off to the dentist. He checked it out carefully, and found nothing wrong. He X-rayed the tooth, the root from both sides, and said there was nothing wrong. He found a lot of plaque on the inside of my bottom teeth and especially on the sore one. He said he thought that the tooth was reacting supsiciously to the plaque. We had it removed by th oral hygienist. Now the plaque is gone, and the tooth is still sore. It is sensitive to pressure, hot and cold liquids. It is not excruciating, and it doesn’t seem to get worse. It just stays like that. I’ts been more than a month.

A friend said that one’s teeth are linked to certain organs, and apparently, that tooth is linked to the spleen or the stomach – she said it is on the same “meridian”, so if there is nothing wrong with the tooth, it might be that there is something wrong with the spleen. I would appreciate your comments on this, or how to proceed from here.

If the dentist didn’t find anything wrong, and I paid through my neck for the appointment, I can’t imagine going back. What more can he do than all the Xrays etc.?

I am in a lot of pain which started with a chipped tooth, what could be the source of pain?

Friday, January 21st, 2011
Q.

I had a front tooth root filling in early Nov. Had been chipped & badly cracked umpteen years ago but earlier this year became tender to pressure. Was/got infected. 5 lots of antibiotics, 1 temp crown [the tooth cracked further], umpteen appts for ‘cleaning’ inside & more pain than I thought I could stand. Then endodontic referral [early Dec], different internal medication, and it did improve slightly but still needed full pain relief [max paracetamol & max ibuprofen daily]. Was advised it might ‘settle down’ … hasn’t. Returned to endo in early Jan, refilled again, again did improved slightly but still very painful to any sort of touch & need regular pain relief and now seems to be getting worse again. Have been told it might be phantom nerve pain and not to have tooth out until seen by neurologist, which could take months on NHS. I think it far more likely infection is still lurking although medication keeps is from forming obvious absess or that root is actually cracked as well & I would get relief from extraction. Gums very sore in area too. What is your opinion please ?

My tooth cracked and had to be extracted after root canal treatment. Can a crown be fitted?

Monday, November 29th, 2010
Q.

I have had RCT on UL6 and was left for 6 months until any other treatment (check up) Just a week before my appointment, this tooth fractured and resulted in being extracted. Would the length of time this tooth was left, in a brittle state, be the reason this fractured? I had finished antibiotics 2 weeks prior to RCT so would infection be reduced? Would a temp crown be fitted in all RCT cases? Thankyou

What is the process for crown and veneer replacement and how does a gum graft procedure work?

Thursday, November 18th, 2010
Q.
Hi Mark, I was the victim of violent crime some 10 years ago where I21 and 22 were knocked out, taking much of the surrounding gum tissue and bone with them and I 11 was cracked in half. I received treatment at the Leeds Dental Institute back in 2001 where they placed two implants, abutments and crowns in and cemented then veneered I11. It was decided by the surgeons at the time that, due to the large amount of discharging bone fragments, that to risk a gum graft was not sensible. Therefore I currently have a slight lack of gum surrounding I21 / 22. I am not happy with the positioning or visibility of the crowns today. Recent x-rays show that the implants are perfectly healthy with no further receeding of the surrounding tissue or bone. I am interested in understanding the process for replacing both crowns and the veneer to more aethetically pleasing versions, combined with a tooth whitening process. At the same time I would like to specifically understand how a gum graft can be factored into this proceedure and what the inherent risks are today and the likely costs of such treatments. I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
