Should antibiotic prophylaxis be given to someone with heart complications?

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
Q.

I have recently been diagnosed with severe aortic stenosis caused by a congenital bicuspid aortic valve. I need some extensive dental procedures which may include at least one extraction, one or possibly two implants, a repaired or replaced crown and veneer, and a new crown or possibly a bridge. I am currently symptom free and not on any medications. Would you please advise me on any additional risks associated with any of the dental procedures mentioned. Also, do you recommend taking precautionary measures?

Do I have any option but tooth extraction?

Thursday, March 31st, 2011
Q.

lower molar gets root canal 2 years ago. x-ray at time shows suspicious small shaded area beneath the root that may be infection. so no crown is put on in case the infection develops and removal is req’d. Now, infection starts to erupt from gum surrounding the tooth. Dentist suspects fractured tooth has been cause but not seen on xray. new xray now suggests infection spreading in bone. Is there really any option but removal?

My dentist has had three attempts to remove my lower left 4. Each time it would not knumb suficiently so she has refered me for sedation. I am not nervous of having teeth out but I am anxious about sedation. Can you re-assure me. Thanks

Could my daughters teeth be treated without extractions?

Friday, March 18th, 2011
Q.

I am directing this question to you specifically, as I have read a little on the affects of some procedures on facial asthetics/profile, and have been concerned. That you are clearly aware and interested in these points makes me hope that you may be able to guide us a little?… My daughter is 16, and her two front teeth protrude/tip forward. This is by 8mm, we have been informed, but there is otherwise no problem with her teeth. The rest of them are beautifully alligned, and her oral hygene has always been exceptional so the condition of her teeth and gums is also extremely good.

Prior to moving, we were told by our dentist that a brace would be needed for 8mths, with no extractions. A different dentist then said her teeth were not ‘bad’ enough to warrent a brace. Her new dentist has suggested 2 extractions (of perfectly healthy and perfectly alligned teeth, futher back in her jaw), and a fitted brace for 18-24mths. He has suggested this is her only option, and will not discuss otherwise.

I have now read many research papers, and also many sites claiming success for different procedures. There is support that from 16yrs, a female’s structue is no longer pliable, and contrary reports that the structure of adults of any age is malable to a degree.

My daughters teeth may be seen from different angles in photos at the bottom of this page (copy & paste): My question is this, in your opinion, is it possible that only extraction and a fixed brace are available as a route for her, or could INVISALIGN/INMAN; DAMON SYSTEM; LINGUAL BRACES or even the HOMEOBLOCK be viable options?

I am concerned that removing teeth and having a conventional brace fitted would result in VERTICAL GROWTH, and therefore possibly ruin a budding career, and would very much appreciate an honest response regarding these points… any further info./suggestion is obviously welcome, and your opinion is highly valued. Thank you in advance for your time.

I had a tooth pulled, would I be suitable for an implant?

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011
Q.

I was having issues with a recent root canal and decided to have it pulled instead of going through re-treatment and possibly oral surgery. The permanent crown had not yet been placed, and I was wondering if it could be used instead for an implant. My dentist was not optimistic that it would work, but he was very unhappy with my decision at all. I’d really like a second opinion.

Thank you!!
