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)

I want to replace my two front teeth, possibly a third, mainly because of a filling at the gum line on one and the fact that they are crossing, so that I can begin to smile broadly for the first time since my teens (when the filling was put there)!  I work full-time and can take time off only as part of my holiday allowance, which I am planning now. I will pay to have the best possible result, lasting for the longest poss...

I would contact 'TJ' Nicholas who set up this site and ask him to recommend a dentist in your part of London. He sees all our work and can advise accordingly.

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.
Dental Professional 31/10/2018 12:00 am
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)

I lost an old filling and had a toothache as a result. I had an emergency appointment the next day the dentist had a look and then filled it saying she didn't know how long it would last as there wasn't much tooth left I was charged £19.70. 3 weeks later I lost the filling tried to make an emergency appointment as it was aching, due to a bereavement I had to wait a week had the appointment, different dentist looked at it told ...

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 have had TMJ problems for 4 years. I also have ankylosing spondylitis. In 2008 I had an MRI which showed that the right TMJ has an anteriorly displaced reducing articular disc with some condyle and eminence degenerative change. The left is fine. It was not thought to be due to AS. The problem on the right has got steadily worse and after some physio on it recently the pain has been really bad for 5 weeks despite diazepam, di...

Hello there My 9 year old son recently finished his removable brace treatment. We were told by his dentist to leave him with no retainer for one or two weeks to "let his teeth settle into their new position". The dentist has been away for a further week and now 3 weeks later it seems to me his teeth have moved back to where they were before we started treatment a year ago. He still has a pronounced gap between his two front in...

It would be difficult to provide a retainer for someone of his age as he is still growing and I would assume that this brace was just used to correct a specific problem prior to monitoring and/or future treatment as you sons mouth grows. Please discuss your concerns with your dentist so that you can (more)

On Sunday 15/01/2012 I had toothache, this toothache emanated from underneath a gold crown at the top right side of my mouth. This continued throughout the day & night and as a result I attended my NHS Dentist on Monday 16/01/2012. She examined & X-Rayed the tooth & determined that there was a minor infection in the root of the tooth beneath the gold crown. I asked for Antibiotics to remove the infection because it was causin...

I would go to the General Dental Council and take this up with your local NP . Changes need to happen within the system and people like you need to make it happen .

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)

Recently a 5 year old porcelain crown ( lower back) broke off while I was eating. It couldn't be replaced due to the fact some tooth and filling had broken off with it. The dentist told me that I would need a new crown, with posts and root filling. He told me to keep the broken crown safe so I could show the new dentist about to take over the practice for colour matching. He showed me xrays of the roots, said they were good an...
