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.

I have an eating disorder, my teeth and gums have become fragile, what supplements can i take to improve this?

July 16th, 2012

Hello Dr Z, I’m 18 years old and for the last 2 years i have had a bit of an eating disorder. I wasn’t eating very much at all, and what i was eating wasn’t the best food. My teeth and gums have become very fragile, probably with the lack of nutrition. I’ve noticed my gums are very pale, there doesn’t look to be much blood flowing to them. I am still not eating too well, but i wanted to find out what type of supplements i could take to improve the health of my gums? Thanks Jose!
