RECENT QUESTION:

"Is it sensible or even common to have a crown sent back to a lab and have porcelain added?? My crown did not fit adequately to allow a “click” for when I floss. I was told it would be sent back and built-up to adequately fit. I am very concerned. Please let me know what my options would be…. She did show me the crown for shade purpose… but, I am not very secure with “you won’t even notice” comment and it is done occasionally."

REPLY:

"This happens from time to time when there is not an adequate contact with a neighboring tooth.  The crown simply adjusted or "added to" with more porcelain to ensure that there will not be a food trap.  It is certainly a benefit to you that your dentist took the time to check this as a food trap around an implant can lead to loss of the implant due to a periodontal infection.  Your dentist was simply providing thorough and accurate care.  Give him or her a pat on the back and rest assured."

RECENT QUESTION:

"Thanks for your time and sharing your knowledge. My front lower teeth are ground short, but I have used a night-guard for a couple years which seems to help. New dentist suggests I get 4 root canals(one 3 hour apt), crown lengthening and 4 crowns. This is expensive and I fear I might not need the root canals since I rarely need fillings. Can I trust this new dentist or is this a cash-grab? Is the night-guard enough of a solution for now or should I deal with this now. Any other resolutions you know of? Thanks again!"

REPLY:

"Your teeth are short due to one of two reasons:  Either you have worn them down due to a parafunctional habit such as grinding or you have a bite that is too heavy in the front (severe overbite) that has caused the wear over many years of normal function.  You can also have both.  If your teeth are short enough, root canals would be necessary to crown the teeth because by cutting the short teeth for the crowns the pulp (nerve and blood tissue) of the tooth would be exposed.  Crown lenthening would be necessary to gain more tooth structure to work with removing a small amount of alveolar bone around each tooth.  Dentists like to have at least 4mm of tooth to work with when placing a crown.  
 
If your bite is too heavy in the front, you should consider having some orthodontic work done to correct this issue as well.  I would talk with your dentist about the long term prognosis of your teeth and the restorations that are being recommended.  
 
It is very hard or even impossible to diagnose anything online from a few lines so take what I say just as a suggestion.  Have an open conversation with your dentist.  It sounds like they know what they are doing.  
 
I hope this helps."

RECENT QUESTION:

"I bit down on something semi-hard and after I swallowed, I felt something different in my mouth.  When I looked, I noticed that a large piece of my 2nd from the back, right side, bottom molar was missing!  I have a large silver colored filling in that tooth but it doesn't hurt and there's no looseness or anything and I also have no insurance and am a student.  Is this something that needs to be looked at right away or will it be ok?  Thank you so much for your help!"

REPLY:

"Teeth can crack for many different reasons.  Most commonly, decayed teeth or teeth with large restorations tend to crack.  Either way, I would have it examined in order to rule out anything untoward.  That way, if the tooth needs a crown or something else you can be prepared.  Take care and good luck!"

RECENT QUESTION:

"I'm Rona, 29 years of age and a Filipina. I'm wearing fixed bridge for more than ten years now but it's still bothering me. I was just 18 at that time and that was the most terrible decision I made. My three font teeth had abscess and my dentist told me that root canal didn’t work. So she gave me two options: undergo surgery to remove the affected part of the root or to extract them completely! I asked her which is better but she didn't give me a clear response. She told me it was up to me and that I should decide right away. I was afraid that the abscess will not be completely removed and that it would affect the others. Yes, that was stupid! I didn't know I would regret it for the rest of my life. I started to hate the dentist thinking that she's responsible for not giving me a good advice. Not only that wearing false teeth especially at a young age lowered my self esteem and confidence, but also it's not comfortable not to mention speech problems. Moreover, I feel like the abutment teeth are now affected since my gums had receded. I don't want to lose a single tooth again. It really ruined my life and I feel that only implants can make me feel better. I was even suicidal and until now I'm blaming myself for what happened. I could have chosen the surgery but I can never reverse it. I want to have dental implants in the future but it's too expensive. The other dentist told me that it costs Php150,000 per tooth! It might be even more expensive in the future. I'm just a part-time online English tutor and finding a full time job is difficult nowadays. Is there a cheaper type of implants and how about the abutments?

I'm really devastated because it affected my life a lot! I feel so ugly and very unlikable. I know that only an unselfish dentist can understand me. I think most dentists are just after the money. I'm very grateful I found the getfreedental.com website. I hope you can find time to read this long e-mail and to give a response. I will highly appreciate it. I cannot tell anyone about my problem. I hope you can understand my situation.

Thank you so much and I wish you all the best"

REPLY:

"Rona, I am sorry to hear that you have had so much difficulty with your teeth. Your situation is certainly complex but not grave. It is hard to diagnose without seeing you but I can at least give you some options or ideas.

If your bridge is failing either mechanically or esthetically you can always replace the bridge with a new one. In most cases a fixed bridge can be very esthetically pleasing if designed properly. It would depend on the condition of the abutment teeth, your smile line, and soft tissue (among other things). This would be an easier solution when considering cost and time and reliability.

Unfortunately, there are no implants that are cheaper that are designed for single tooth replacement. There are mini implants that are less expensive that can be used to support a removable denture but cannot be used (in most cases) to support single teeth. If you are convinced that implants are what you want they can be placed one by one over time as your finances allow and remain unused until you are ready. This would involve removing the bridge and wearing a removable partial denture until you are ready to restore all the implants. This is time consuming and requires a great deal of patience.

Also, keep in mind that if the missing teeth have been removed for several years the bone will likely need to be augmented with a graft to support the implants. This adds cost and requires additional surgery. It all depends on the quality of the bone that is there.

I would recommend setting up a consultation with a dentist that has experience with these procedures and see what they say. As I said it is very hard to give the best advice to a patient without seeing them in person. I wish you luck."

RECENT QUESTION:

"I live in California. I just recently went to see a periodontist yesterday. He says that my upper left wisdom tooth needs to be taken out. My wisdom tooth is only partially showing. The cost is going to be $1500 for getting it surgically removed. I think that is too much just for one tooth. Does that price range sound right to you? Or do you think I get it some where else cheaper."

REPLY:

"You might be looking at some other costs as well because that is extremely high in any demographic.  I would call and have them give you a detailed breakdown of the costs."

RECENT QUESTION:

"Could you please tell me if I can use doxycycline hyclate for a possible dental abscess?"

REPLY:

"Usually for a dental abscess we recommend amoxicillin or if there is an allergy clindamycin. I am guessing that you may have some antibiotics left over from a previous infection. Any antibiotic prescribed should always be finished to avoid building resistance. It is always advisable to see a dental professional to properly diagnose your problem. Please take the time to get a proper diagnosis."

RECENT QUESTION:

"I was diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma of the right ear some cancer was discovered in my jaw bone but doctors felt the radiation treatments would take of it. In 2010 I underwent 38 horrendous radiation treatments to the right side of my head, neck and face. I have difficulty opening my mouth, which makes it hard to get my teeth brushed or cleaned.

My question:  Is there a special dentist that I should look for and what type of ??? should I be asking.

The radiation oncologist said it was very important that I get fluoride treatments, but my dentist just shrugged his shoulders when I reported this, so my oncologist wrote the prescription, now it's running out and I don't know where to turn. I really want to save my teeth and have as healthy a mouth as possible.

Thank you for any information that will help me in my struggle to save my teeth and have a healthy mouth overall.
"

REPLY:

"There really is not a special dentist that would be recommended for someone with your medical history.  I would ask a friend or your physician for a referral and go from there.  
    The radiation treatments are known to decrease the salivary glands function and thus increase the decay rate by not naturally cleansing the teeth throughout the day.  I understand it is hard to clean your teeth, however impeccable oral hygiene is paramount.  I would recommend a few things for you to invest.  
1.  Have your new dentist refill your fluoride toothpaste prescription and stay on it indefinitely, ie get refills.  
2.  Invest in a high quality electric toothbrush.  Sonicare, or Oral B make good units.  This will help you keep things cleaner.  
3.  Get some floss picks if you cannot floss with your fingers.  These are found in the dental isle at the drug store.
4.  Biotene products help stimulate the salivary glands.  Again, in the dental isle.  If these are not working ask your dentist to perform a salivary analysis to see if you are a candidate for a prescription salivary stimulater.
5.  Increase your frequency and duration of home care.  Brush and floss more and for a longer period of time.  A full 2 minutes.  Floss twice if you feel the need.
6.  Take small sips of water throughout thee day from a water bottle filled with tap water.  Most bottled waters do not have fluoride in it.  

The more you invest now the less likely your are to have a big dental bill.  I hope this helps and good luck.

Best wishes,

RECENT QUESTION:

"Hi guys, I have a white  star shaped sore in the middle is normal like a dot of normal tissue but around it is like a star, doesn't hurt itch or burn, also a white rough patch where my tooth used to be, no pain, both spots are rough.

Now I gargled salt water before I knew I had the star shaped spot, I used too much salt not allot of water and kept it in my mouth for about 15 min, could this be what caused the star shaped spot?, as for the other one it was there allot longer. I also have near the area 2 abscessed teeth they both hurt when I bite down, please help!."

REPLY:

"Thanks for your submission.  It is somewhat reckless to try and make a diagnosis from a hazy image taken from a cell phone.  We do appreciate the effort, though.  There are factors that need to be considered when trying to figure something like this out.  What is your age?  Has there been any trauma (cheek biting)?  Are you a smoker or drinker?  One would also need to get a better look at the lesions and their size, color, and shape.

My best recommendation for you would be to see an oral surgeon and have them take a closer look at the area.  Many times if an area is suspicious, they will elect to biopsy the area just to rule out anything untoward.  Please make an appointment at your earliest convenience.  Thanks again for your submission.
Best wishes,

RECENT QUESTION:

"Hello, I wanted to ask you something dental related. At the back of my mouth I have my wisdom teeth growing and I wanted to know am I supposed to get those because I just turned 13 in july, like a couple weeks later my wisdom teeth started growing. Are they wisdom teeth or not. And if they are, are you supposed to get them removed when your older. Plead.reply asap."

REPLY:

"If you are 13 these are likely your second molar or 12 year molar and not your third molar or wisdom teeth.  I have seen patients your age with erupting wisdom teeth but this is rare to see.  I would ask that you see your dentist and have an x-ray and an examination to determine this.  I hope this helps.

RECENT QUESTION:

"Hello, I do hope you can help. I am a 47 year old woman. For a few months now, I noticed my back bottom right molar started to become loose. It also seemed like it was being lifted up and was no longer in line with the rest of my teeth the way it use to be. There was a little pain/pressure around it every now and then, but that pain/pressure would eventually subside.

Yesterday, it was VERY loose and to my surprise, it actually popped right out! There was no pain and very little bleeding. Now there is just an empty space in the back of my mouth that is bigger than before.

My question is, should I see a dentist for this? I am almost 99% sure it fell out because of a wisdom tooth coming in (even though I cannot see a tooth there yet) Also, I can see from looking at the 'root' of my tooth that there are markings of where the wisdom tooth was pushing up against it!

Even though I am not in pain, is it necessary to see a dentist? I have no insurance so this is why I hesitate to do so. I am concerned that I could experience that dreadful "dry socket" condition? Or is that something only people who have their teeth pulled experience? I am not sure, but it worries me.

Last, how should I keep the surrounding area clean and free of infection?

Thank you so much for your help and I do look forward to hearing from you!

Renee"

REPLY:

"Renee,
I am sorry to hear that you lost a tooth.  A tooth, like any other part of your body, has a specific function and purpose and when they are lost, should be replaced.  I also can say that wisdom teeth cannot cause teeth to come out of the socket.  What is more likely is that periodontal disease caused the tooth to come out.  The most common cause of tooth loss is periodontal disease.  I would strongly encourage you to have a comprehensive periodontal exam especially since you are overdue for a checkup.  Periodontal disease, if it is present in your case, has been linked to several other conditions such as diabetes and heart disease just to name a couple.  Please, go get a checkup.

Best wishes,

RECENT QUESTION:

"Last thursday I had my cracked silver filling drilled out and my tooth refilled with the white stuff and it is still sensitive. I can drink whatever I want hot or cold and it doesn't effect me unless i chew something harder than toast! Am I just being paranoid or is there something wrong? Please Help!"

REPLY:

"It is somewhat common to have some sensitivity after having any restorative dental work done.  I always tell my patients that teeth are vital body parts and sometimes they don't react well to having holes drilled in them.  The sensitivity could be caused by a number of different factors.  I will start with the most likely. 

1.   If your bite is not balanced it can make the tooth hypersensitive by compressing the ligament that holds the tooth in the socket.  This is easily fixed by going into your dentist and having them check the tooth.   
 
2.  How deep the existing filling or decay was when the tooth was filled.  The deeper the filling the more likely it will be sensitive afterward. 
 
3.  Placement conditions during the filling process are critical to a good result.  Was the tooth isolated and dry and were the proper protocol followed for the material that was used. 
 
I would encourage you to have your dentist check the tooth as soon as possible.  It will likely be resolved with out any issue.  Good luck." 
Best wishes,

RECENT QUESTION:

"Does the bitewing x rays discover oral cancer or what kind of x rays discoer oral cancer?"

REPLY:

"Oral cancer is tyically discovered by using a visual examination at a biannual check-up.  There are certain areas of the mouth that are more likely to be affected by cancer, ie the floor of the mouth and sides of the tongue, that are checked along with the other areas in great detail.  In recent years dentists have started to use fluorescence to discover some precancerous lesions that otherwise would go undetected until they are more visually apparent.  Be aware that if your dentist has this special piece of equipment they may have a fee for the exam.  Patients who are at a high risk for oral cancer (tobacco and alcohol users) are ideal for regular exams and should request them if they are not performed on a regular basis by your dentist."

RECENT QUESTION:

"I have noticed a small, hard bump on the right side of the roof of my mouth. It is painless and is barely visible to the naked eye. I am a teenager who does not smoke or drink. I was just wondering if you could tell me what this bump could be. It feels bone hard and doesn't move or anything. I've noticed it being there for at least over a month."

REPLY:

"Thanks for your question.   I will say that it is hard to say what it could be without seeing the bump in person.  I would recommend that you see a dentist to have it checked out.  One thing that comes to mind is a palatal torus which is a normal bony growth that is present on the roof of the mouth in some people.  If the area is not painful and doesn't change shape, color or size, that is certainly a good thing but having the area evaluated by a dentist is a good idea."

RECENT QUESTION:

"I have had this dull throbbing on the inside of my cheek.  The pain is centered in the back of my mouth near the jaw line.  My cheek feels a little numb, almost as if I just had a novo cane shot (but of course I didn’t). It is especially painful and raw on my gums in the area behind my teeth.  I am in the process of getting my wisdom teeth in, so that explains some of the pain.  However the rawness and the cheek pain is new.  What do you think could be casing this?"

REPLY:

"Your condition is certainly uncommon and cannot be answered within the confines of an online forum.  I can tell you that I would recommend for you to see an oral surgeon as soon as possible.  Sorry that I cannot be of more help; I do hope that you do seek some personal and professional advice." 
Sincerely,

RECENT QUESTION:

"I am 24 yrs old.  One of my baby tooth never fell off now its loose. I went to a dentist last year and she confirmed that It will fall off. She suggested braces but I dont want braces for several reasons. What are my options and what can I do about the loose tooth? Thanks!"

REPLY:

"There are several options that can be explored but they depend on where the tooth is located in your mouth and how much space is left between the surrounding teeth.  Braces can close the space if there is not room to place another tooth where the baby tooth was.  If there is adequate space a dental implant can be placed as well as a removable partial denture or "flipper".  Implants are expensive but are the best long term solution.  At times patients will choose an inexpensive option (flipper) and save for a more permanent solution (implant).  I hope this helps."

RECENT QUESTION:

"I have a bad tooth ache and it bleeding how long can I wait to get it pulled cause half the tooth is gone. How long can I wait because money is tight with me and the wife."

REPLY:

"Its hard to tell without seeing the tooth personally.  Whenever a tooth is badly broken down it is always at risk to become abscessed and become very painful.  If money is an issue I would do some research and see if there is a local free dental clinic or even a dental school who could extract the tooth for you.  I would say that your time is limited and you are better off getting it taken care of as soon as you can."

RECENT QUESTION:

"Hello I hope you can answer a question for me. I have had diabeties for 31 years. Had bad acid reflux for about 12 years but that is under control now.I had been robbed and took a couple good blows and lost teeth. And after a bad bout of depression I even pulled teeth out of my head. So I have no teeth left except for two on the bottom in the front all the rest are broke down to the gum line.Is it possible for me to even get dentures.I am on disability but I can live cheap so I could make monthly payments. But my depression is coming back hard. I will not talk to people. Never go away unless I absoiutely have to. Cant smile of course. Cant eat much more than hot cereal,ice cream,pudding,ramen noodles. Is there any help for me I dont think I have much time left."

REPLY:

"You are not alone being in the position that you are in currently.  Having been a diabetic for over 30 years you might be aware of the systemic links between periodontal disease and diabetes.  Basically, they both contribute to the severity of each other.  You should consider having an upper and lower denture made after having the remaining teeth extracted if they are in the condition that you described.  I would set up a consultation with a dentist to determine a good course of action before anything can be done.  I do not recommend extracting your own teeth especially being a diabetic as wounds tend to have a slower healing time and the risk of infection is greater. 
     The dentist you go to can talk to you about your options and give you a time frame to complete treatment.  You will be happy that you went.  As soon as you have some teeth to chew better with your diet will improve and your overall health will improve as well.  I hope this helps."

RECENT QUESTION:

"I have had considerable dental work over the years but have neglected my oral health for years now while raising my special needs child.  At my last medical physical my Dr. noted that my white blood cell count was high.  I suspected this was due to all of the dental problems so I went to the dentist and picked one that does this type of major work.  He said I grind my teeth at night and all of my old fillings (they are hugh) are broken and i have a few that have cavities and some gum issues.  He advisied me of what he would do if it was his mouth, then someone else came in to discuss the cost.  $26,000 dollars.  I dont have that kind of money!  So my question is how to evaulate medical necessity verses cost and long term health and functioning.  I see add for dentures for $500.  Is it ok for me to say to the Dr.  ok well that is what you would do but I don;t have the resouces you do,so can we come up with a different plan?  Thanks for any suggestions!"

REPLY:

"Thanks for writing in to the site.  You are not alone in your dilemma.  I suppose that it is possible to have your white cell count be elevated from having some dental infections but you would probably be well aware of where they are in your mouth and it would be more imminent to address them for your own comfort.  The dentist who gave you the estimation was likely giving you what would be ideal to rehabilitate your mouth.  It should be made clear to him/her that you cannot afford such treatment even though it may be ideal.  You can have the dentist break things down for you so that you can address the teeth that either need to be taken out or have root canals first so that you can get out of pain (assuming there is some present).  Then you can treat the periodontal (gum) tissue to make sure that it is healthy.  When periodontal disease is present it is a source of bacteremia, or bacteria in the blood.  This can affect your overall health.  Heart disease, diabetes, even certain types of cancer are linked to the health of the gum tissue so it should not be taken lightly.  As for your old fillings and areas of decay, these areas should be addressed in order or priority.  It is difficult to judge without seeing you but again your dentist should be able to prioritize these for you as well so that things can be done over time and hopefully fit your budget.  If there are some missing teeth, a partial or complete denture can be considered.  I would advise you not to consider one of the discount denture clinics.  Like anything else, you get what you pay for with a less expensive treatment option.  The materials tend to be not of the same quality as those that would be used otherwise.  Sometimes, steps in the fitting process are skipped to get the denture to you faster and result in a fit that is not as good.  If you can save some teeth and get fitted for a partial denture that is usually better than a complete denture.  I hope this helps and good luck."

but what if to look from the other side? personally, I would be rellay happy if those costs would be applied in Uzb as well. Reason? Its simple. People would think about their teeth more carefully.
