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...

Would you mind giving me your professional opinion about this onlay/crown, the one with the sticking up bit! It looks and feels bad to me. Is it ill-made and wrong? I call it my egg cup as it has no anatomy just what feels like a huge smooth hole where the cusp should be. It has never felt comfortable. The crown on the other side feels like part of my body. Should my dentist have sent it back and complained to the lab rat...

The cost my NHS Dentist quoted to me for private treatment is £700 for the root canal treatment and £400 for a white crown.

I broke a tooth with a large filling 2 weeks ago. On Friday my dentist 'prepared' the tooth for a crown and said that the root was not exposed, so did not need root canal treatment. As soon as the anaesthetic began to wear off I was experiencing 'electric shocks' that were severe and lasted for some seconds. (very miserable) in the last 2 days, (with an awful lot of Panadol and Nurofen) they are subsiding a little - they're no...

Hello, I am a 19 year old guy who has had braces on for 2 years now. I've been told by my dentist that my two front bottom teeth have shorter roots than the rest of them. I've also had my 4 wisdom teeth, and 4 other teeth removed. Sometimes it hurts to bite hard things with the bottom teeth and I just want to know if it has to do with the braces shifting my teeth around or the shortness of roots .I really don't want to lose te...

I am 20 years old and have been suffering with gum recession for about three years if I remember correctly. The recession is very slow but recently it has really started to worry me, I fear that I might have gum disease but my dentist has not picked up on it. I have started to develop size-able pockets between my teeth and gum line on both my upper and lower front teeth, especially my lower canines. If my gums recede any furth...

Hi, please can you answer a question for me, I've had two titanium implants and now need to have abutments and crowns.  Some dentists advertise gold abutments and some offer titanium ones.  The gold abutments are much less expensive. What is the advantage of the titanium abutments over the other? Thanks
