Conditions with symptom: 'tooth decay'
I am a 18 year old boy. Most of front tooth are irregularly oriented. And all my tooth are yellowish and nearly five teeth are slightly shaking. Also two tooth are pressed together. i experienced some pain in them nearly 3 months ago but it subsided later. I also experience from bad breath but I have no tooth decay and all. I have never visited a dentist in my life. What should I do????
poor diet and smoking can lead to youre gum receding gums, thus making teeth more wobbly, in regards to youre bad breath, i would dvise seeing the dentist, i dont like dentists at the best of times, butthey can help and aid with any issues you have, my gum receded, due to smoking, i quit over a months ago, and have seen slight difference, but majorly. brush twice a day and chewing gum inbetween snack times does help, aslo freshens youre breath, as to the yellowish colour on youre teeth, it can be down to poor cleaning of the teeth (flossing is good to :)..), drinking to much coffee/wine/smoking, and rarely it can also be just the pigment in youre teeth.

Hi i have bad tooth decay in my front teeth and have no confidence i am 5 month pregnant and was wondering if i could get my teeth capped for free and could you help me
I have noticed recently dark brown line shaped stains on my teeth and was wondering what it was, no matter how much i brush my teeth it is still there and was worried it was tooth decay or something, when i run my tongue over it, it doesn't feel like anything in particular, so any advice on what it is or how to get rid of it would be much appreciated.
My three year old recently fell over and banged one of his top front teeth. The gum bled briefly and the tooth is not loose but I think it is starting to darken in colour and looks as if it could be going grey. Could this be a result of trauma to the tooth, will the tooth fall out and could it impact his second tooth?
no my little brother did that when he was 5 and his tooth dis colourd and we told the dentist and he really did nothing about it so then after a month or so it went back to normal so dont worry about it x
I am 27 and still have one baby tooth at the top 3rd from centre. You can see this when I smile and because its so small it looks like I have no tooth there in pictures which makes me self conscious. Also I think this has caused the tooth beside it to become more worn down due to how my jaw sits. What options do I have regardless of cost?
I am a dental nurse and have 2 baby teeth still, though they are further back. Upper and lower 5th on left. Have you had xrays to see if the permanent tooth is there? If it isn't i would suggest discussing implants with your dentist. Although expensive they have the best function and look brilliant. You would expect to pay upwards of £1500. Another option would be a bridge or if money an issue a single tooth denture
i am 36 years of age and i am a diabetic, i have been researching as much info as i can to try rectify my problem, and hoping that i may get an answer here. i am of the belief that diabetes has taken a major blow on my mouth, i have constant bleeding gums every time i brush and right now one of my front tooth as pushed out of my gum so much that there is a very noticeable space on both sides of my tooth and it has reached to the point where i can physically hold the tooth and shake it and it seems like it wants to come out. i don't want to loose this tooth because of the embarrassment of having this empty space to the front of my mouth. Is there any way that this tooth can be saved, pushed back in ?

I have had a tooth ache for 3 days now just one tooth in front, my dentist says it's from a sinus infection which I've never had and I'm worried it may be something worse I really don't want to lose a tooth, especially in front of my mouth as I could end up depressed with the thought of people looking at me and laughing at me because of an incompetent dentist. Please help.
Hi I have had a tightening/throbbing sensation to my right upper molar for 14 months without a days rest bite. I have had a filling replaced and X-rays of the tooth which show nothing wrong with the tooth. My dentists keep brushing it off but I am really concerned there is something going on that can't be seen. I have been to my GP and had a facial scan which showed nothing. I'm due to see an ENT consultant but no one seems to be able to help me. My tooth does not feel right it feels swollen and this pressure sensation us driving me mad. Can you please please help me
