I Have Had A Root Canal On A Crowned Tooth. Would It Be Possible To Get A Bridge For Two Teeth Or Would I Need Dental Implants?

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark, I have been to the dentist and been told I need to have a root canal on a crown I had years ago which has never worked and he is not sure how much tooth is left, also the tooth next to it is not in a great condition, the top is completely crumbled but he might be able to save it to crown. The cost is too much to have the work done on both so my other option is to have them both out. Not sure what to do other than that though. Would I be able to get a bridge for two teeth or would I need to get implants? Also how much money would that be?
Thank you.

I Had A New Bridge Put In And Whenever I Chew It Hurts. The Temporary One Worked Better. Can I Have It Changed Back?

Thursday, June 19th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I had a root canal done on the lower ring molar and they put the new bridge in. Now chewing and eating on the right side hurts, do you have any suggestions to stop the pain? I believe it’s in the molar where I had the root canal on. The bridge was too high and my dentist was grinding down on my upper bridge and then on the bottom. I been back 3 times and it’s better now. I still feel pain in when I chew on that side and the temporary one seemed like it was a better bridge. Is there any way I could change it back? Thanks.

My Dentist Trimmed My Teeth Too Far Down And Now They Are Sensitive, Now I May Need A Root Canal. What Should I Do?

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013
Q.

Dear Doctor,
9 Months ago I got dental bridges on both sides (lower) from Pakistan. The dentist had trimmed the teeth too much and I still feel sensitivity issues with cold, hot and even pressure. Though it gets better with time but not finished. I consulted another dentist and he advised me to leave it as they will be okay with time. The dentist who fixed them, now advising me for root canal but I don’t want to because my supporting teeth are healthy and I don’t want them to be dead.
Now I am in the UK,  please advise me, what do I have to do to overcome this problem? Can I wait more or go for the replacement of bridges.

Thank you and kind regards.

My Front Teeth Are Brittle After Root Canals, My Question Is: Can The Crown Be Attached Under The Gums To Look Like The Original Teeth?

Thursday, September 12th, 2013
Q.

My front teeth have had root canals and became brittle and now only the roots are left. No more crowns. The roots are up to the gum edge only. One dentist said that the roots can be cleaned again and then posts will be installed. The porcelain jacket will now be attached. My question would be: Can the crown be attached under the gums so it will appear to be like the original teeth and so the dirt will not easily enter the jacket. Will they be strong enough to use it for biting?

I Have Discoloured Teeth And My Fillings Are Sensitive. Should I Go With More Than One Consultation?

Friday, September 6th, 2013
Q.

Greeting Doctor. I have had fillings and route canal treatment done on my front teeth that continue to cause me problems as they are very sensitive and flair up often when knocked, infact my whole mouth is very temperamental and also my two front teeth have discoloured, they are a brownish colour in the front and black from behind they are really bad, and it means that I can no longer smile as it’s too embarrassing for me. I cannot have my photo taken anymore either as this makes them look worst my NHS dentist has suggested veneers or implants what would you suggest.

Many thanks.

Do One Day Implants Really Work And Can I Have a Bridge with Veneers?

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013
Q.

I have 4 front porcelain veneers and need to remove tooth number 8 due to a root deterioration (I had a root canal at a early age and I currently have had an infection on root of tooth 8 for while now with gum separation and have already had 2 apicoectomys done). I am trying to decide between an implant or bridge (conventional or Maryland). Prosthodontist said I could go for a bridge due to already having veneers and a possible color difference if I did implant. I have a real anxiety issue about implants because if it is too long of a process then I don’t think I can go for so long with a temporary or flipper (emotionally speaking). My questions are: 

1) Do one-day implants really work and are they truly done in one day?
2) Can I have Maryland bridge if I have veneers?
Thank you in advance for your response.

I Want Veneers On My Front Teeth, Is This Possible?

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013
Q.

Hi I just have a couple of questions. I had a root canal on my front teeth a few years ago now it is slightly discoloured and a little chipped, it really bothers me but, my dentist has advised not to have a crown or veener and leave it as it is and not to mess with it as it may cause it to fall out in the near future, is there anything at all you can advise? I would like 4 veeners across the front top if possible do you think there is anything i can do? I’m really not happy with the appearance of it, I feel he’s just being lazy! I’m the one who has to live with it and smile with it showing, with it being on my front tooth I feel like everyone can see it. It’s making me feel very self-conscious but what am I supposed to do if he won’t fix it for me? Thanks

My Filled Tooth Is Aching Still, Do I Need A Root Canal?

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013
Q.

I had my back tooth filled over 2 weeks ago and am still in pain, went back to dentist today and he gave me toothpaste, I am still in pain what can I do? He also gave m some more fillings altogether 3. I am on benefits, do you think he is trying to make money out of me and why hasn’t he taken an x ray? – I feel there is something not quite right with this dentist. The pain is circulating around my tooth, The tooth he filled was previously looked at by another dentist who said I should have a root canal, and this dentist said he could save it but I am still in pain.

How Much Should I Pay For My Crown?

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013
Q.

My tooth has broken and I have been advised to have a crown. I will require a root canal and porcelain crown. Could you give me an idea of what sort of cost I would be looking at.
The tooth is the 2nd tooth after my front tooth, so very visible. Could you also recommend what way you think is best to go.
Currently I have a temporary tooth fitted over the remains of my old tooth which is constantly falling out.

Many Thanks.
