Are dentures my only option?

Friday, June 24th, 2011
Q.

Hello Dr Moore
Please can you help me, i have severe bone loss in my gums the teeth that i have left are very mobile, and make it difficult to eat, my dentist said my only option is dentures, this makes me very sad. But if that is the case is there such a thing as realistic dentures? My remaining teeth have all moved and so they look crowded in some places and gaps in other places. I find myself trying not to smile as i am very aware that my teeth do not look very nice, my dentist said that only 2% of the population have this really bad gum condition, i have looked into going abroad for treatment because of the cost, but i think because of my problems it would be wise to get any work done here in the uk. Thank you in advance for your reply. KInd regards

My dentist tells me I don’t have enough bone for dental implants, what are my options?

Friday, June 17th, 2011
Q.

Hello Doctor. 

I had my 4 front teeth extracted 30 years ago, and I now want dental implants. I do not have sufficient bone in that area. Do I have to have bone taken from my jaw or other parts of my body, or is there a bone substitute that could be used. I know that impants can be costly, but my confidence has taken a beating with having to wear a denture first and then a fixed brace, which envolved stripping my 2 canines to use as the anchor teeth. I am female and in my early 50,s. I would really appreciate your reply and thank you for your time.

Are implants the answer to my daughter’s missing teeth?

Friday, June 17th, 2011
Q.

My daughter has loss her front 4 top permanent teeth when she was only eleven. Her top jaw bone has considerable reabsorption. Her oral surgeon is suggesting that he take bone from her bottom jaw bone to build up her jaw bone. He also suggest that placing two top front implants with another tooth anchored to each side of the implants instead of placing four implants. Do you think this is better then placing 4 implants?

Thanks for taking the time to read this

I have periodontists and want my teeth replaced, what would you recommend?

Friday, June 17th, 2011
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes

I have periodontists and my upper teeth are splayed and gappy, very long and I wanted them replaced. I am looking for a second opinion and do not know where to go.

My present dentist has told me I can have the upper teeth replaced in sections only, first four front teeth including work on one back molar. Yet all the upper teeth are quite bad to look at and the bone and gum have eroded away.

I am confused to why I can’t just have a fixed denture and can’t seem to get a direct straight forward answer, I just want to know what the options are.

I would like to find out from another dentist whether there are other options suitable for my teeth. I have to have this work done and the teeth and gum (although not the worst that I have seen having researched this) I have at present are not very nice looking so I find myself being quite ashamed to laugh or speak.

I have seen a few different options via researching implants and want to find out if fixed dentures are an option, whether I can take the molds and ct scans with me for a second consultation to a new CD (or is this not the done thing?), and if I can have the upper teeth all removed and replaced. I am so confused with regard of who to go to for a consultation. I have saved hard for this work to be done, the amount I was quoted keeps changing so I don’t really know where I stand. I just want some clear answers which are best suited to me as an individual. Can you advise? I’m 47. Thank you so much

My teeth seem to change on a daily basis, what is the cause?

Friday, June 17th, 2011
Q.

Hello Doctor, 

Just got my 2 front teeth bonded to close a gap in my front teeth. I feel like they move from day to day. Sometimes looking really buck and long…other times ok.. I can also feel the teeth on my top lip sometimes…is that a sign that they are bucking out. I have always had a little bucking…but this seems like much more…
What should I do? I have been wearing a one of the night mouth guards…but not sure if it making is better or worse. As I said before…I take pics of my teeth…certain times ok and others not so happy. Can’t really get anyone to be honest with you about your teeth…so what can I do? Thank you very much for your time

My crown has just fallen off, should I replace it with another crown or an implant?

Friday, June 17th, 2011
Q.

Dear Dr Moore,
I had a crown put on one of my front teeth 6 years ago due to discolouration of the tooth after root canal treatment. Last few days, my tooth felt loose and I organised an emergency dentist appointment. After taking the crown off and looking at the xrays, there is a clear horizontal fracture line near where the tooth ‘stump’ meets the gum. The dentist strenghten the tooth with cement and put the crown back on as a temporary measure. She explained it might only last a couple of months before the tooth breaks completely. She offered me two options: a post crown or an implant. I was wondering which option do you think would be more appropriate in my situation? I am 24 years old and would like a long-lasting but safe option. I feel I would like to try the post crown first but was told that this might only last 10 years. Would having a post crown put in first make it more difficult to have an implant at a later stage?
Thank you

I had a molar tooth extracted and need a bone graft to replace supporting bone, will this be successful?

Thursday, January 20th, 2011
Q.

In November I had a bad tooth extracted, UR7, proir to an implant. Unfortunately the extraction revealed that a lot of the supporting bone had gone, leaving insufficient to anchor an implant. I was referred to a specialist who suggested a bone graft, taking a donantion from the lower front of my jaw. I’m not keen on this solution, partly because I shall have two wounds to heal and partly because I appear to be losing bone, both in the vacinity of this upper right quadrant and in another location where I had an implant a few months ago. I would be grateful for your advice, particularly regarding the likely success of the bone graft, eg will the bone in the donor site regrow, given my history of bone loss? Thanks.

How long will i have to wait to wear a denture after my bone graft?

Monday, January 10th, 2011
Q.

Hi

I had a front tooth extracted 6 months ago, and due to short roots on my front teeth, a bridge is not an option. I have a denture at the moment, but I have been told if I want an implant, I would need a bone graft first. Will the graft damage or loosen the teeth either side, and how quickly will I be able to wear my denture after the graft. Thanks

I have periodontal disease. Is there anything that can be done?

Monday, November 22nd, 2010
Q.

I was recently referred to a dental hospital by my dentist, the consultant says I have periodontal disease and there is nothing that can be done. Not even implants due to extensive bone loss. I wanted veneers and my dentist had discussed fitting a splint and then veneers. Are there really no options available to me cosmetically??
