Does Tooth Enamel Grow Back?

Thursday, September 29th, 2016
Q.

I am now 22 years old. My right and bottom tooth (premolar) is decayed. It sometimes causes pain and bleeding. And it disturbs me most of the time when I’m trying to do my studies. I am thinking of removing it, but I don’t want to loose my tooth when I am too young. I have doubts about whether my tooth will grow or not if I remove it. My question is, at what age do teeth stop growing? Please, I need advice on how to take care of my tooth.
Thank you.

My Young Daughter’s Teeth Are Decaying And Discoloured. Is There Anything That Can Be Done For Her?

Friday, August 8th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. My daughter who is 4, has two front teeth that are worn and very discoloured and unsightly looking, I understand these are her baby teeth, but she is already self conscious about them and won’t smile. She also has three back teeth that are decayed and I believe this is due to drinking milk in the night. Is there anything that can be done for her? Her front teeth in particular are chipped and worn with
a thin bit of tooth remaining that makes it look like she has one thin tooth in the centre! As she is now affected by her appearance which is worrying as she is only four! Your opinion is greatly appreciated.

Kind regards.

I Have Dental Phobia! My Teeth Have Been Neglected Due To Past Fears. Can You Help Me Fix My Teeth?

Thursday, December 5th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have a dental phobia!! Can you help me? My teeth are in a very bad condition and I am embarrassed by them everyday, I worry constantly about my crowns and other teeth falling out, several of them have fallen out and I only have partial teeth in places. I know the time as come to seek help.
I do not have a needle phobia which I know stops a lot of people seeking dental care. My fear is partly irrational and partly due to past experiences. Hopefully you can help me to move forward.
Thank you.

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
Q.

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.

My Teeth Are Decayed Due To Acid Reflux, Can I Get Them Crowned On The NHS?

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013
Q.

I have been to the dentist today and my teeth have severe decay through acid reflux, which I have been having treatment for over the last 2 years or more at my local hospital needing several operations to stretch the oesophagus to prevent me bringing food and liquid back up from continuously . The dentist said the cost will be over £6000 to have them crowned, as this comes under cosmetic treatment, is this correct? the other option he gave me was to have my teeth out and he would fit dentures on the NHS, something I really could not have in my mouth, can you offer any advice please, is it possible to have crowns or caps on the NHS due to other medical conditions? Kindest regards

My Tooth Fell Out Unexpectedly, What Do I Do?

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013
Q.

I have teeth that are partially falling out in the back, but I just had a tooth that didn’t know of fall out towards the front, up top today. I have also been noticing tiny dark spots in the creases of my bottom front teeth and its appearing to me that they may be rottening as well. Please tell me what I can do? I noticed this morning that the tooth that it could have been one of the causes of bad breath. Please help me to understand what is going on with my mouth, and if possible, what steps I need to take in order to make things better for my breath, teeth, and dental hygiene. I’m thinking about implants.

Monday, April 29th, 2013
Q.

I went to my dentist this week as I have 2 decayed upper left 7&8,  a missing lower left 3 and missing up left 4. My front right 1 has a distal chip right down the edge. I am very embarrassed of my teeth an am getting married in August. I asked my dentist if she could do me some veneers or crowns or bridges and all she said she would do is extract I really don’t want this.i am a NHS patient and don’t know where to turn now. I don’t want to lose any more
teeth. She wouldn’t even offer me composite fillings for my front teeth she just tried to push dentures and I do not want them. Can you suggest anything I can do? I’m so upset.

My Tooth Hurts When I Come In From The Cold, What Is The Problem?

Monday, April 8th, 2013
Q.

When out in cold air I feel no pain but a few minutes after coming into the warm I get a pain in upper tooth which lasts for some time (depends how cold it is outside and how long I’ve been out. My dentist says he can see nothing wrong and has x rayed. I do use special toothpaste for sensitive teeth but it doesn’t help.
If I get a cold (which I haven’t this winter I do get pain in the teeth both sides but this pain is on the upper jaw between premolar and molar. Seems to be at a very specific spot between the teeth
What can be the cause and what can I do as I am getting reluctant to go out in the cold?
