I’ve been experiencing gradually worsening jaw ache since getting a filling. What should I do?

Monday, November 26th, 2012
Q.

Hello. I had a dental filling done about four weeks ago and about two weeks ago I started to get and ache on that side of the jaw. It’s not an awful pain and until today (four weeks since the dental treatment) I haven’t needed pain killers. I went to the doctors two days ago and he couldn’t see anything obvious and prescribed some anti inflammatory tablets. Could this ache be related to the dental treatment? The pain is on the left side of my face and at it’s worst it feels as if the ache is spreading to left ear along the jaw.

What is the best option for my worn front teeth?

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011
Q.

I require a veneer to the top quarter of one of my front teeth. The enamel here has completely worn away. I am not presently looking for any further treatment. I have recently seen a dentist and other minor works required can wait until I can afford the cost. I cannot have the tooth whitening process as I have tried this and am allergic to it. Could you possibly offer an approximation of cost for a front tooth veneer? I am not sure if it is possible to cover just the affected top quarter of the tooth or if the whole tooth has to be covered? Thankyou

I am unhappy with the appearance of my new veneer, can I have it changed?

Monday, October 10th, 2011
Q.

Hi there, I have had a lab made veneer on my front left tooth and I am unhappy with the way it looks because it looks bigger than the front right tooth, If if were to use a cerec dentist would they be able to make it look nice and symetrical, and how much roughly would I expect to pay for this service? I also have some black fillings that I might be interested in getting replaced with cerec fillings again how much would I be expected to pay for this?

Many thanks

X-rays show a black spot near the nerve of my tooth suffering from decay, can this affect the results of root canal treatment?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011
Q.

Hello Dr,
I have a front tooth decay, which I had filled with no immediate issues . The tooth was sensitive for a while when one day pain alleviated and the gum below the teeth started to swell up. the dentist here took a few xrays of it and asked whether I wanted to go with root canal treatment. However in the xray near the nerve of the tooth (nerve in the upper part of the tooth and beneath the gums), we could see a black spot. Taking this black spot into consideration do you think normal root canal treatment can go ahead or should i consult a specialist to assess before procedure with the root canal treatment.
Thankyou very much in advance

What would be the best way to fill in a gap between my teeth?

Thursday, August 11th, 2011
Q.

I currently have a gap, top set, 5th from the front. I no longer want the gap as it’s effecting my confidence making me conscious when I smile. I have looked into having a bridge but didn’t know if I can if the teeth either side of the gap have fillings in and if not what are my options? I have had the gap for over 6 months. Also other than brushing, flossing, mouth wash, avoiding sugary foods as much as possible what else can I do to care for my teeth as they seem to be made of chalk and crumble!

Leaking Crown filled with Gold! What can be done?

Monday, May 16th, 2011
Q.

My crown on the last lower right molar was done about 10 years ago. One dentist told me it there could be problem with it but leave it alone if it’s not bothering you, another said it needed to be restored because there appeared to be leakage but I needed to see an endodontist.. I decided to restore it. A post had been placed in the tooth previous. Endodontist starts drilling and discovered the roots were filled with gold (can you believe it, gold) and the crown is like one unit and there is a risk of tooth breakage if they try to remove the crown. The attempt to remove the gold was futile and I was told just leave it alone. The tooth has a temporary patch. Of course I don’t want to lose my tooth. My osteoporosis makes pulling a tooth somewhat risker. The tooth was not bothing me and I hope it continues not to, but my fear is that it will develop decay. I need the crown filled now, can this be done? Is this the only solution?

Filling treatment has left me with pain that wasn’t present before. What should I do?

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011
Q.

A couple of months ago i registered and had my first visit to a new dentist. I had a filling in my very back upper left tooth aprox 2 months ago. I had no pain previous to this but was advised there was a cavity. Straight afterwards I was in a lot of pain and returned to the dentist. He advised that he added a bit more seal to the filling. The pain was still there so I returned again and he said the filling may have been too high. He removed the filling and appeared to put in cotton wool mixed Vaseline. He told me this was a different type of filling, informing me that the majority of people suit the other filling I had originally but as i appeared sensitive to that, this new type of filling should suit me better. He also gave me antibiotics. 3 weeks have passed and although this seemed to have fixed the pain temporarily it has now flared up again. I have never heard of a cotton wool filling before and I have my doubts this is a permanent solution. The tooth is also left with very sharp jagged edges I can feel with my tounge.
I was initially told the first time I returned that I may need a root filling or extraction. I find this a bit concerning as I had no problems previously. Could you please advise me on this and whether cotton wool fillings are common practice.

Just something else you maybe able to clarify. On my first visit he also did a 10 min clean polish and scale to my teeth which I was charged £60 for. I thought this was something a hygienist did as my husband who is with another dentist got referred for this treatment and it was about 40 mins with a proper hygienist.

Thanks in advance

Can you please advise what the difference is between a normal filling and a microseal?

I can’t seem to find any information on the net.
