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.
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)

Category · Root Canal Treatment
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)

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)

Hi I had 2 teeth extracted and my upper teeth pushed back when I was younger to correct an overbite. My teeth are now too far back in my mouth and are hardly visable when I smile, giving me a sunken profile. Is it possible to reverse this by reopening the extraction spaces and moving the front teeth forward with braces and an expander ? Thanks Simon
Dental Professional 12/04/2013 12:00 am
Yes it is perfectly feasible to do as you suggest Just be aware that it is only possible to move teeth to where there is healthy bone present to support them and all brace work carries a risk of tooth nerve damage and root resorption Of course if you end up reopening the space where (more)

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?
Dental Professional 05/03/2018 12:00 am
hello Michael , have you considered an Implant evaluation appointment?This can be reversed www.ceramiccentre.com

My daughter is currently having her eye teeth moved to fill the space of her laterals, I have heard that she should have had implants? I am in a bit of a panic, is this corect? her teeth have only just started to move and they say they will trim them back in the long run to look like lateral teeth. Please help!
Dental Professional 22/05/2010 12:00 am
    This might be of interest, whatever the treatment, make sure your orthodontist adresses the occlusion for the long term stability of her teeth, read about occlusion on this site.  Root length in transplanted premolars  Authors: Siv Myrlund a; Eva Margrete Stermer a; Bjrn Album a;Arild Stenvik a Abstract The objectives of the present prospective longitudinal (more)

I'm looking for a dentist in the Uk who is familiar with re opening extraction spaces and is familiar with the work of http://www.facefocused.com/ReOpen.html. Many thanks, Nick
Dental Professional 04/10/2013 12:00 am
You will find this hard to find , you will need to describe the treatment you want at any high street consultant and express you needs and remember to talk about wanting your occlusion to be right , so that means ,teeth end up working properly.Read up about occlusion on this site in the occlusion (more)
