Any dentists among the HP fans?

This is one of the subjects where Internet searches tend to bring my sleeping dentophobia to life, but I'd need an expert's thoughts on the state of Sirius Black's teeth after twelve years in Azkaban prison (prolly without a toothbrush). Azkaban doesn't seem the kind of place that has a dental care department and doesn't seem too keen on maintaining basic hygiene among the lifetimers. I thought I'd give him advanced states of gingivitis and tooth decay and a couple of abscessed molars, plus whatever kind of end result one gets after twelve years of tooth grinding. While magical dentistry should be able to deal with most conditions fairly easily, I'm not that sure that even they could do anything short of a root canal once the nerve is dead.
