I am due to undergo surgery to fix my underbite, what are the risks?

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011
Q.

Hi Dr. Hughes.
I am 17 years old and have had braces for about a year now. In December (hopefully) I am due to undergo surgery to correct my underbite. They plan to put plates into my top jaw to widen it and therefore bring it in line with my lower jaw which is not being operated on. Although I am fairly confident about the surgery, I have seen some scary pictures statistics and possible risks over the internet which have worried me. Please could you tell me how bad the recovery process will be and what are the risks in the surgery? thank- you

I hate my teeth and would like a bridge, how much would it cost?

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011
Q.

I hate my teeth and I’m very nervous about visiting the dentist. I need to make my teeth look better. I have two protruding front teeth due to gum disease and a lot of loose teeth. I think the solution would be to remove all the loose teeth and have the front two extracted and get a bridge. I reckon I would need around 4-5 teeth on the bridge. I would like to know what the cost would be for the treatment.

I have bad teeth and a phobia of dentists and needles, what shall I do?

Friday, February 4th, 2011
Q.

Hi, I have terrible teeth, I also have an extreem phobia of dentists and needles, I’ve tried to go to a dentist and have so far attempted two local anasthetic sessions with no luck, I’m really looking for a dentist that will just put me to sleep and take out all my teeth to be replaced with screw in dentures/teeth. Is this something that can be done? Ideally I’d like to do this privately and not on the nhs, I don’t mind the cost it’s more than worth it to me.
Hope you can help

I have numerous oral hygiene problems, what do you advise?

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011
Q.

I have been a phobia of brushing my teeth, it goes through me i have got an electric one that too goes through me it makes me wanna cringe.

Im told my dentist this when i had dentist , he told me i was just being stupid. I have this problem for ages. since i had braces on fears back.

Im 28yrs old, my teeth is not perfect ive neglected them they begining to hurt i have filling thats missing. My dentist failed to contact me when i got hold of them its like they never exsited the number changed the place doesnt even exsits no more…

on top right of my jaw my filling fell out of that hole in may i think now every time i try to brush y teeth despite it goes through me the cold water goes right through me this put me off from brushing the
i have swollen gums.

I used Rapid relif toothpaste my teeth begining to wobble am i too late to save them… i used eat lots of sugar too ive cut down a week ago now.

Some old dentisit used to say to me they wobble if ur under alot of stress or if ur worrying about something i not sure if thats true or not..

i had this other fluride gel thing pharmist gave me that put it on at night it helps to prtect ur namel on ur teeth, i dnt have ne namel they turned yellow. the gel helps ur teeth to stop wobbling ive gone blk on the stuff cos i do fear some time soon they may all fall out.
