Conditions with symptom: 'wobbly teeth'
I have a wobbly tooth and three other dysfunction teeth. Would like to ask Resident dentist Dr James where I can have a reliable good dentist to do my teeth,possibly teeth implants
Hi Cindy. i have just finished a course of treatment consisting of "All-on 4"implants to my top jaw, a permanent bridge to replace my bottom front 4 teeth and the remaining bottom molars have had the old mercury fillings removed and replaced with new crowns just to the biting surfaces of the teeth. I'd had years of problems with peridontitis, tooth loss, wobbly teeth, infections etc. Now everything is great. I have no discomfort ( never did actually through the entire procedure ). My teeth are lovely and I have a wonderful smile again. My dentist couldnt have been better, especially considering I am verging on being dental phobic. Cant recommend him too highly. Dont know if I'm allowed to say the name of the practice on this forum but its Dovetail, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. If you can afford this type of specialist dental work then I say..go for it
I have bad gum disease and several of my teeth are wobbly. Can't afford a periodontist and am trying to treat it with good oral hygiene. Am so worried about losing my teeth, any useful advice.
Hi the roots of my two bottom front teeth are starting to show (or the gum is very thin) below the gum line, but my gums are not receding. So it looks like there are two holes in my gum below the gum line. It doesn't hurt, my teeth are not wobbly and I don't think I have any cavities. Please can you let me know what this is?
i am a forty year old female. i am not sure if my question is relevant this site but i just don't know what else to do. i have a top front painful wobbly tooth along with a painful wobbly back tooth, receding gums, i suffer with toothache and abcesses quite alot. i can't bear the thought of going to the dentist due to dread of the pain, cost and them man handling my teeth which will undoubtedly end up with me having dentures which fills me with dread and worry. its making me so miserable as i know what i have to do, if i had some idea of what they might do i might be able to conjure up the courage to go to the dentist, but they never seem to be the friendliest of people. i understand there are other people with real problems and illnesses but i really don't know who else to ask, i just want straight advice. many thanks, Janine.
Janine...Don't worry so much about the dentist...At the end of the day, they are just people...You need to go and get sorted....There is absolutely no need for your misery. Just what do you think will happen? No-one likes having to go to the dentist..I hate going, but I'm not afraid of them..All I want is my teeth looking after...Get yourself along there, get yourself sorted.. You are your own worst enemy....in a nice way of course...get yourself there...x
It started a year ago with shoulder pain, then head aches when I wake up . As the months have gone by it's now my jaw on the right side aches a lot . Iv had 2 ear infections and constantly feel like my ears are blocked up. Then 2 months ago I woke up with a banging headache and jaw ache , when I looked in the mirror my jaw was swollen so I open my mouth and to my horror my teeth were wobbly and gums were red and swollen. The pain when trying to close my mouth and put just the slightest pressure on my teeth was excruciating . I saw my dentist and iv been told I have night bruxism . I Was give medication and given a night guard. Iv been told I have a big over bite now and when I close my teeth together my top teeth completely cover my bottom teeth and this I feel is making it very difficult to eat as I'm always in pain. Well it's been 3 weeks with the night guard and there is no difference . The dentist says because my bottom teeth are crooked and over crowded it's worse and they have now worn away the enamel behind my front 4 teeth and will go into the pulp. All I can say is , at times the pain is unbearable to the point of not wanting to wake up . Iv never in my life felt pain like this and at the age of 40 I'd like to think or I'm hoping that surely there is something someone can do to help me as I can't carry on for much longer with just night guard and pain killers for the rest of my life :(
My teeth are in pretty poor shape after my childhood and my reluctance to clean my teeth. I'm living with the consequences now, but thankfully I am brushing my teeth twice a day currently. However, my top 2 teeth have began to rot at the top of the tooth where it meets the gum, and I have had numerous fillings. Is there anything I can do to make the appearance of my teeth better, make the teeth whiter and look more healthy. And also, disguise or fix the rotted area between my top two teeth and my gum.
The most suitable solution is to have 'composite' restorations placed which are white - this must be done by a dentist and is available on the NHS for anterior teeth. Keep on top of your brushing etc., stop smoking and avoid foods that stain teeth including wine/curry etc.
the rot at the top of your teeth is because you are not cleaning your teeth properly. i would advise a trip to the dentist to have the rot removed and filling placed, and thena trip to the hygienist for a very strict oral hygiene regime
Hi I'm stevie and I'm coming 26, for the past 9 years my teeth are yellow and the enamel is off most my teeth, I used to drink a lot of fizzy drinks when I was in my teens. I always have to fillings done because I'm always breaking and chipping my teeth and I also smoke I know that doesn't help my teeth but I have tried to quit a few times in the past. But I have bad anxiety problems that I just can't socialise with people because I don't want people seeing my teeth, I can't remember when the last time I actually smiled. Because of my teeth I get badly depressed and there days that I don't eat beacuse I scared of breaking my teeth. I have no confidence or self esteemm, when I see people in street they have nice perfect teeth. I hate my teeth and I hate myself for what I have done to them. Can anybody help or give me advice?
I'm 34 and some of my teeth have crumbled. I only have 24 teeth left and at least 5 have crumbled. I brush my teeth twice per day. My dentist told me that it's due to smoking. I have friends who smoke more than I do but have perfect teeth. Why are my teeth doing this and how do I stop it?
