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...

I have suffered from gum disease for a number of years and it has gone untreated. My dentist has referred me to a specialist periodontist in a hospital and as waiting on my appointment I have noticed the problem has got worse. I'm wondering what my best option would be, could I have all my teeth removed and dentures fitted or could i have a gingival mask fitted as the condition of smile now has deteriorated so much that I'm em...

I have recently had my wisdom teeth removed. This went well however when I went in for my followup, the xray showed a little sliver of metal in one of my sockets. My surgeon said this is nothing to worry about and that my gums will grow over it. He mentioned that it could have come from the device to remove saliva or perhaps a chip of filling. Is this something to be concerned about or will this just become part of my body.

Hi. I have just yesterday had 2 teeth removed from the top. The eye tooth from each side. I now have a full top denture. When the dentist tried the plate it fitted ok, but when I came home and tried myself, the new dentures wont fit because of a swelling on the gums where the extracted teeth used to be. I'm wondering if it's an abscess? It is quite sore when I touch it.

Hi, I've just had a front crown removed including the root as the root was fractured. I also have a dental plate with the two side teeth on, so the dentist added a front tooth on to my exsisting plate.\r\nMy question is, is it best to keep the plate in at night time, as I\'ve noticed the gum is starting to settle away from the new front tooth, which is now exposing more of the tooth and is concerned this will get worse?\r\nI h...

I have changed my oral hygiene and now floss everytime I eat, rinse my mouth with water after meals. I have a...

Hi, I am 44 years old and until Feb 2012 still had two baby teeth. One became very wobbly so my dentist took both out and had a denture made ready for me to wear straight away. He then referred me to hospital in order for the two impacted canines that never errupted to be removed from my gum, in order for bridging or implants to be done. I had the surgery last Wednesday 30.05.12. The surgeon informed me that they had to remove...
