My Filling Has Come Out and My Tooth is Broken. Is This an Emergency?

Thursday, November 13th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My (I think it’s called a canine tooth, it’s 3rd tooth from the front to the left) has had a filling on it from when it broke in half about two years ago. The filling has come out, and I’m left with half a tooth again. Is this counted as an emergency? Or will I have to wait two weeks as that’s the only date they can see me? I don’t have any real pain but I am finding it very hard to eat and my tooth feels funny a lot of the time. Thank you in advance.

My Tooth Broke And A Filling Came Out After Root Canal Treatment. What Should I Do?

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014
Q.

Hello Marcus. I have had two root canals done. Very shortly afterwards one tooth broke. And a short while after that, the second tooth lost its filling. When the filling fell out, it exposed a hole and in the hole was cotton. It was definitely in the hole beneath the filling. Why would that be? I have looked on the internet and cannot find any reason this would be. It seems that somehow the dentist forgot something and in may have made a mistake. Thank you.

I Have a Broken Tooth, But It Isn’t Causing Pain. Should I Be Worried?

Friday, September 19th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. A while ago one of my fillings came loose and fell out. The tooth then cracked,  then the tooth fell out. However, there is still the root and a tiny but of tooth still present. I had an abscess, but I couldn’t get an appointment at the dentist’s until days after I got it and it eventually went away, so I never bothered going to the dentist after all. The area around the broken tooth is very red and a bit lumpy. I do not get any pain from this tooth, but should I be worried? Do you think I should go to the dentist anyway to make sure everything is okay? Thank you for your time.

I Don’t Eat Sweets, Smoke Or Drink, So Why Are My Teeth Are Rotting Away?

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I had problems when I was a kid with the dentist my parents picked and since then I’ve never really had much trust in dentists. I want this to change. Since I’ve had kids my teeth keep getting worse and I don’t know what to do please help. I have just been to a new dentist today as I’d lost a filling at the weekend, when he had a look he wasn’t happy with my teeth at all and said who was you’re last dentist and do you eat a lot of sugar food and drink loads of tea when I told him, he looked at me and didn’t believe me.
I’m a veggie, don’t eat sweets and won’t give them the kids, I only drink water as don’t like tea or coffee since my first child, I don’t smoke or drink.
I’m pregnant at the moment and getting very scared over my teeth as he told me the tooth I need treatment on needs a new filling as it was rotten in places. I don’t want all my teeth to rotten away.
Please help, I don’t know what can I do please.

Hello, I Have A Big Fear Of The Dentists, But I Have To Go. What Are My Options?

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I have a really huge fear of the dentist as of bad experiences with them when I was younger and I have extremely bad anxiety and panic attacks. I have had a big filing fall out which has caused a big section of my tooth to come out and I can’t eat or sleep properly due to the pain, I have my first appointment with a dentist on Tuesday but I’m really terrified. Is it possible for you to tell me if you know whether I can be put asleep for treatment before treatment or something along those lines? Where would treatment like this be available to me? Please reply as this is urgent and really very scared. Thank you for your time.

Half Of My Filling Fell Out, Do I Need An Extraction?

Thursday, July 25th, 2013
Q.

Hi. I had a root canal on one of my molars a while ago and half of the filling fell out whilst eating. I went to my dentist and she took the rest of it out and put a temporary white filling in and said I’d need an extraction. She wasn’t very nice and didn’t mention anything else and never got back to me when I called. That was a few months ago and now the temporary filling has fully eroded away so I have a big gap in my tooth. The ‘inside’ of the tooth is black and yellow and pretty gross, which I’m concerned about. It is not causing me any pain at all. I was wondering, by the sounds of this, is there any other treatment possible instead of an extraction? I’m only 17 and really do not want an extraction.
Thank you for reading I hope you can reply.

Is the pain I am having because of a root infection?

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012
Q.

A 20 year old filling dropped out of my upper molar. Since being screwed and refilled I have had severe pain on and off most days for a year.My dentist keeps saying it is gum infection but there is no sign of inflammation or rot after all this time and even if I don’t eat on that side,eating can be excruciating for ten minutes and then the pain will completely disappear, and return sometime throughout the day,often without eating or drinking anything.Been using Cortisol soaked brushes mouthwash and toothpaste all this time but my dentist just won’t reason that it could be something else.
Could the screws be touching a nerve maybe? Do I need a root canal? Sometimes the pain goes right up to the base of my eye socket,and I am convinced that gum infection would not feel like this.I never had gum problems before the filling dropped out, and yet I am supposed to believe that I have now from the very first day after the new filling onwards for a year now.
Your advice would be greatly appreciated, I am 62.

My filling constantly falls out, will this affect me having a brace fitted?

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012
Q.

I have severely crooked teeth and what I think is a side bite if I remember rightly what a dentist told me about 10 years ago. I am 26 and as a teenager didn’t persist with my retainer brace. What I was told needed done was to widen my top palet 1st before being able to have braces fitted. As i say I didn’t see this through as a teenager due to feeling like the retainer affected my every day life/confidence/self esteem more than having crooked teeth. I wish I hadn’t been so silly back then. Anyway my problem now and question to you is this….I have had trouble with 2 back teeth (one either side) that started breaking and crumbling away after having my 2nd child, they have since been filled numerous times but one sides filling keeps falling out. Would this effect me trying to have a brace fitted now?

How long should a CEREC replacement last?

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011
Q.

Hi there

Can you please advise with regard to cerec. 2 years ago I had 3 large fillings replaced with cerec (these were old fillings that were failing and in one case the tooth had cracked and broken), since then 2 have failed, one twice, they seem to simply just come loose and fall out. The first happened within a day of having it done, my dentist replaced it free of charge. The second happened about 14 months later, when I went to see my dentist he wanted to charge me to replace it, I had to do some serious negotiation to come to a reasonable figure (however I was still annoyed as I felt it should have simply be fixed at no cost to me). Now the first one that fell out and was replaced has failed again. I would be grateful of your advice with regard to how long cerec should last, why they are failing and falling out and lastly should I have to pay to have them replaced after only 2 years?

Many thanks
