Q.

Teeth

Over the year I have had teeth extracted as I suffered from pains and tooth decay. Now there are a lot of gaps in my mouth and I am even afraid to smile. Is the way of fixing this?

You could have "false teeth" made. These could be either removable or fixed.
The removable ones are dentures which I'msure you have seen before. In terms of fixed options, you could do bridges or implants.
Ask your dentist to discuss these options with you as well what is best suited to you.
