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)

My crown came out six month ago & my dentist put it back, but I have been today and he said it's still loose because it's not connecting to the root proper and i will eventually end up losing it, it's my front tooth so what options is there for mean. My right side next to my two front is a crown too but this seems ok , it's my left crown next to my two front teeth there is a big gap too which makes it look like its bad but it'...

My wife has had a metal crown fitted on the NHS for the cost of £214.Her dentist stated that if she had wanted a porcelain crown it would have been in the region of £500.Why could she not have had aporcelain crown for the same price?

Any costing issues are independent to the dentist you are working with , we cannot pass comment on anything other than look at your private contract or the NHS contract and any issues raise it with you practice in writing.

I'm 26 and already have 11 rootcanals, 8 of them have had to be repeated, many fillings, 2 bridges and a never ending amount of work that's needed. Im at the dentist every 2 months or so. My biggest issue at the moment is that i have had an abscess in between tooth 21 and 22 for the 3rd time now. The root has been treated twice and when i went to see the dentist last week he did confirm that the root canal treatment looks good...

The treatment your dentist is recommending is called an apicectomy and used to be quite routine in the days when RCTs had a poor prognosis The fact you have had so much dentistry shows that you have eaten more sugars than your teeth can cope with in the past (but hopefully are avoiding sugary snacks (more)

I've just had my 7 year old daughter at the Dental Hospital due to referral by our NHS dentist. She had X-rays done and the dentist that saw them basically said that all her baby teeth need to be extracted, as they all had some degree of decay. He said this was due to a lack of good enamel on them and after a long discussion about oral hygiene and diet, he basically said that it was more than likely down to my bad pregnancy. I...
