hi sir / mam 5 year ago I had a very bad orthodontic treatment which ended up in the extraction of three teeth one from the upper left jaw(premolar) and two from the lower left jaw. ( premolar and canine) most unfortunate thing is that she also removed my canine because of that I am unable to bite from the left side. a dentist told me that premolar can be transformed into canine but I don't think that it is a doable solution.s...

As TJ suggests this will take some planning Canines are important functional teeth and when they are not available other teeth can take over thei function but these rarely have the root length and crown form to deal with the forces such function will require As you suggest an implant supported crown my be an (more)

Ive had an extreme swelling and bruising following a dental injection. Severe swelling occurred immediately after the injection. Then extensive black bruising near my chin and under my chin plus green and yellow bruising and continued numbness over my cheek. The injection was in preparation for work on an upper tooth.

It sounds like the injection lead to a bleed into the tissues near the site due to being placed close to a blood vessel This is a risk with all injections (I personally had something similar following a recent flu jab) Of course on the face such ‘bruising’ can be distressing but should resolve over (more)

A couple of years ago, I finally got around to visiting an NHS dentist, after not going regularly for several years. I'd had extensive crown work some 20 years previously on the NHS back in the early 90's. (My dentist was at pains to point out that I'd had over £60,000 worth of work done at then current private prices, just to make me feel 'small' about it...) Over the years, most of the crowns had one by one come away or brok...

The creation of an ‘overdenture’ is a common procedure. You did not mention if the retained roots had been root treated (sealed). The roots will provide support for your new denture ,giving you time to get used to wearing them. The roots can be removed as and when they cause trouble (additional professional fees will (more)

one of my fillings appears to have a black outline and the silver part is pinkish in color...no pain no swelling
Dental Professional 07/03/2018 12:00 am
It would be useful to see a photo of the tooth but in the absence of that this my reply makes some assumptions from what you say If a "silver" changes colour it is usually due to corrosion of the metals it contains and the dark margin is likely to be further evidence of this (more)

I have lost the upper part of the back lower left molar but my dentist can save the tooth with a crown which is good news. He has also found hairline cracks on the rear right molar and he has proposed using a crown before this too fractures. I am happy with these proposed treatments. I have been given the option of a stainless steel crown at £350, metal free porcelain at £595 and 60% gold at £750. I would get a 10% discount as...

Hi, I had root cleaning on my rear molar and temporary filling due to an infection about a month ago. I was told to come back in February for a checkup to discuss further action which could be either an extraction or a full root canal and crown. The temporary filling crumbled and I had it replaced today. So far I have paid Band 2 charges of £56.30p, plus another £20.60 for the replacement filling today (I think because I asked...

Hi, I was one of the many children treated by the NHS and given tetracycline which discoloured my teeth. I am 49 years old, with 12 old crowns ( now discoloured with a little gum recession). The overall look of my téeth has affected my confidence socially. My dentist says that I can't replace because of possible complications ( root canal etc). Am I stuck with these dreadful teeth or is there anything I can do to improve them?...
Dental Professional 05/03/2018 12:00 am
Hi Pauline it is possible to replace these carefully with the right technology or team www.ceramiccentre.com

I had teeth added on to my partials approximately 2 years ago, I\'ve been taking good care of them,they broke in 2 pieces, shouldn\'t they have lasted longer than 2 years?I don\'t have money to get partials every 2 years.

You would need to consider what is going on underneath and see if your bite is right www.ceramiccentre.com

Category · Chromes Dentures
I am nearly 80 yrs old. I have had chrome dentures for two months, and have had a lot of problems with them. The latest is that the clasps have caused my own teeth to loosen and I have had infection and an extraction as a result. My other teeth are wearing thin due to the movement of the clasps when eating. What happens when all the 'anchor' teeth are worn out and the dentures have nothing to clasp on to?
