I’m 72 Years Old And I Have A Loose Tooth Which Hurts When I Eat. What Would You Suggest For Me To Do?

July 24th, 2014

Hello Dr Mitsas. I would like some advice. I’m 72 years old and I have 2 pallets one on the top and one bottom. The one at the top as 4 teeth the one at the bottom has 2. The pallet at the bottom sits next to a tooth which is loose, and the gum on one side of my tooth has receded badly but the other side of the tooth is okay. The loose tooth is painful whenever I try to eat anything. I don’t like the thought of extraction. My dentist is NHS and he did say he could weld the loose to the good one. Do you know if this a good idea or not? Thank you for your time.

Will antibiotics help stop my gums aching and bleeding?

December 22nd, 2011


I have had aching gums for a while now and didn’t realise that it was anything abnormal.  I went to the dentist and he told me that It has meant that I have been pressing my teeth together which has probably made matters worse. I only realised when my dentist said that I need to start flossing. Is that going to cure things or do I need to take anti-biotics? I dont want to keep going on with bleeding and aching gums.

Thanks for your help
