I have been told that there is some decay on a tooth that has previously been crowned, I was told I can be referred to have this sorted out but that I will have to pay, that it is not available on the NHS - is that correct?

Thank you for calling me this morning the information you gave me was very helpful. The additional problem I have is concerning my bridge. It is a four tooth bridge. I have a back tooth and an eye tooth as an anchor. The bridge is loose and I believe is cracked around the eye tooth and this is where it is more loose. I have some slight throbbing like a dull ache at times. The dentist has told me that if it is loose I will have...

Hello, Had severe toothache and the dentist suggested some fillings, some of which were composite on the premolar so had to pay roughly £100 for each of those. The pain did not go away so after looking again a couple of weeks after the initial treatment it was decided to perform a root canal on one of the teeth that had the composite filling (2nd premolar), after the treatment the composite filling was replaced free of charge....

Hi I had unstraight front teeth and asked my dentist about straightening them, he suggested crowns. I went ahead and had them done about 2 years ago. I'm not happy, the colour is yellow, one sticks out slightly, they feel too far forward and that affects my speech (I spray spit) I'm now totally conscious of them, rarely smile or chat as it's so embarrassing. I also have gum disease which I'm trying to get under control. I've s...

Dear Dentist, My daughter is 11 years old and we live in Leamington Spa. In her recent dental examination her dentist told us her four adult molar teeth should be extracted. One of those was filed couple of years ago and one has decay. The other two are OK. He advised us removing all four needed as her new teeth will fill the gap. My worry is not just only removal of these teeth including two healthy one but also potential und...

Usually there IS an underlying sugar-intake issue. Occasionally teeth erupt with imperfect enamel and are more prone to decay. You won't really know how well formed the new teeth are until they erupt. I advise you get an Orthodontic opinion ( try Leamington Spa Orthodontics- Richard Cure) and minimise the extractions as much as possible. (more)
