I'm a 27 year old woman in recovery from severe bulimia/anorexia, which I had for over ten years. I'm now over 1 year free from binging & purging (vomiting) and I feel I've finally conquered my eating disorder for good. Luckily, I'm now weight restored and in good health - except from my teeth, which have been irreversibly damaged and are causing me a lot of emotional distress. There is extensive erosion which has left left my...

Hi, I was a NHS patient and the dentist asked if I wanted my teeth cleaning and said if I do it it will cost £50 and £35 if another dentist does it? I complained to the practice manager who looked into it and said she offered it for cosmetic reasons and didn't even scale and polish my teeth. Since this I have gone to another dentist privately who was brilliant and said I needed my teeth deep cleaned before I have a extraction ...

I had a crown fitted to a tooth in 2010 after being dissuaded from having a bridge fitted (top right, second from the back no wisdom teeth). I have been back today because this tooth is constantly becoming infected, I wish I'd been more pushy for the bridge. My dentist offered extraction and when I asked about getting the bridge and he said "We don't fit bridges on the NHS". Is this true? How can I go about getting a bridge if...

I brush twice a day floss and use medicated mouthwash but they still bleed constantly some days worse than others. I have now noticed that my front two I attend the hyginist at my local dentist as well. I have noticed now that my crowns have moved ...

Hi, I have had a lot of problems with my teeth over the years and as a result my 4 front top teeth have all had root canals. These were over 10 years ago and now all 4 teeth are grey. Not only are they grey but large parts of them have been filled and they are now chipping easily. I have asked my dentist about these several times and the answer I always get is that I should try and keep my own teeth as long as possible. This i...
