    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.

    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've recently been to my dentist which I really hate.He said that one of my wisdom teeth needs to have a filling as they are weak against bacteria and has decay in it. Now do I get the filling? or just get it removed completely before it causes more problems? My second concern is that at the back of my front teeth there seems to be a brown line going between each tooth, ie brown staining on the left side of the left front tooth, the middle bits between both front teeth and the right side on the right tooth, Is this decay or has my tooth died? Its a very lightish yellow :/ i'm scared of my teeth.

    I am nearly 60 years old and have only just been given a splint by my new dentist. Also I am experiencing a lot of tooth crumbling. When I was a child I do not recall having tootache, but school dentists filled all my back teeth - strange if it was for decay as I have either little or no decay in my front teeth! I had a broken tooth at the age of 14 - there was no decay, no abcess but the dentist removed it anyway; Having paid for a crown on a number of occasions I am now left with yet again a broken post (quite a frgaile post I might add)with my current dentist (nhs) saying she will remove the root and the bridges either side to make a new bridge crossing the five teeth. It has cost me thousands over the years even under NHS treatment and I am very unhappy with the service!

    hello, im a dental nurse. First question, is there any reason why your dentist referred you to a hospital for a simple clean. this can be done in the surgery under the NHS and take about 20 mins to complete. if they are unwilling to do this then visit any independant dentist to have this done. The hospital is not designed for this treatment as it is so simple. and to be honest you may be waiting a long time. these gaps on your front teeth. does it seem as though is parts of the tooth coming away or just the gap between your teeth becoming more prominant? If it seems that parts of the teeth are coming away. you may have decay or weak enamel. In your circumstances get an honest second opinion as this dentist seems dishonest. if it fillings you need then get them, or you can have veneers done but be warned this can make your tooth structure slightly weaker but all this means is that you can pull at hard sticky foods. hopes this helps xx

    Hi am 15 and diabetic and i dont really no if am on the right tooth site but i got my back tooth pulled out because of an infection under my tooth and i only got it done 2 days ago and my gum was a yellow colour and now its gone a bit white with some yellow on it but the tooth beside the hole is all sticky with some yellow round it what does this mean??

    Being a diabetic your ability to heal will be impaired so it is vital you keep the area clean and free from infection The 'yellow colour' if not painful sounds like the normal healing process where the gum trys to knit up the hole, is it would do say if you cut your hand. But as the mouth is wet, this knitting looks yellowy-white and slothy. If the site is really sore it could be a sign of an infection called Dry Socket. See your dentist if its really really painful & concerns you as it may need some treatment. Otherwise follow normal advice; gentle brushing, warm salt mouthrinses, diligent oral hygiene & avoid poking the area. It will heal in time; sockets heal over within the first week but the bone underneath can take many months to fill in.

    I am 16 and have some really bad gum disease and due to my lack of effort and terrible diet it just keeps getting worse. Any hot or cold food or drink i consume just aggrivates my teeth until i cant finsih my food/drink. I have picked up a habbit of laughing with my hand over my mouth because i am too embarrassed to even show my teeth to my friends or family. My family are not supportive in anyway and telling them wouldn't help in any way at all. I have tried to pick up the habbjt of brushing but after a few days i just keep thinking (meh, i'll do it tomorrow) which is what i hate! If I could just pick up a tooth brush every morning and night then i will be okay but i just need to get into a habbit where i do that! I advise anyone who is just starting to get tooth decay or gum disease to start brushing instantly to get it sorted because if you could see my teeth then you would be happy to have your own! One or two brushes a day is better then one or two brushes a year!

    Yes, it is possible to get white marks on your teeth because of braces, this is called a White Spot Lesion and is an early sign of dental decay. It is caused when plaque bacteria sits around the bracket and isnt removed daily. When plaque bacteria sits next to the tooth it feeds on sugars in your diet and in turn releases acids which can slowly destroy the enamel on your tooth. If you continuously fail to remove the plaque from your teeth daily then there is a possibility it can turn into a cavity (hole in your tooth). Best way to avoid it is by using a fluoride t/paste (containing no less than 1450ppm fluoride in it) x2/daily and use a daily fluoride rinse at a different time to brushing. If you think you might have some white marks keep brushing with a fluoride toothpaste, to reharden the tooth tissue. If you have any concerns or difficultly in cleaning any hard to reach areas in your mouth, then speak to your dentist or a dental hygienist and they will be able to recommend a suitable method of removing the plaque from a particular area. (Just to let you know that yes it is possible to get white marks on your teeth by flurosis, but this usually happens when the intake of fluoride is too much and this usually happens when you are young. Usually the white marks you get on your teeth when you have braces is due to a sugary diet and lack of thorough toothbrushing x2 daily)

    I had 90% of my teeth capped nearly 20 years ago. They fall off & I glued back on many many times now all teeth are bad missing and cannot chew anything even a cracker. I also grind my teeth so they are all loose - want all my teeth removed and dentures fitted. Been to at least 4 dentists and they want to do root canal work, bridges etc for decay but more or less one tooth at a time. Some gum areas are not numbed by the injections so I think surgery is the only answer - is this possible to be done in hospital please?

    Are you flossing around that tooth area properly? I suffered from receding gums when I had braces because I was lazy with flossing between the braces properly!!! Use super floss daily and ensure you don't brush your teeth too hard as you may wear down the enamel/gum. Also ensure you brush your gums too and not just your teeth. I would consult your dentist and ask them if your brushing technique is up to scratch too. Dont be afraid to ask!!
