I have sjogrens syndrome and my dentist tells me I need to have dentures. Other options?

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011
Q.

Hello doctor, I have sjogrens syndrome and now have a mouthful of crowns all of which are shifting and my dentist has said that in the near future they will have to be replaced. I do have one real tooth left which he is going to have to completely remove this month. The only options he has given me is a mouthful of dentures, which horrifies me at aged 39! My dentist thinks that implants will not work because of the sjogens and because periodically I have to take steroids. I just wondered what are your thoughts and experiences on implants and sjogrens patients? thank you for your time

Numerous health issues have lead to the deterioration of my teeth, what can I do?

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011
Q.

Hello, I am 20 and completely depressed about the state of my teeth, I feel embarassed, paranoid and have to cover my face to laugh as Im so embarassed. My career means I am always working with the public which makes everything harder. I can barely even eat theyre that bad.
I have very bad gum disease and the gum is receeding at the back of my front teeth, I have already lost most of my back teeth on each side and am in constant discomfort.
I try my hardest cleaning my teeth 3 times a day and used cordysl mouthwash to try n rid myself of gum disease, but as I am diabetic it seems to never heal.
I have also had stomach problems for over a year, which makes me vomit which aalso leads to my teeth weakening.
I know Ill be told I need dentures which I could not live with ,or I could pay for dental implants which I could never afford, I feel like my illnesses have caused all of the problems with my teeth. I have been on a liquid diet for weeks as I can no longer eat most solid food, this also compromises my diabetes. What advice do you have for me?

I had a very bad reaction to implants and have been told that I may have to wear dentures, what are my options?

Monday, May 16th, 2011
Q.

Dear Dr. Glaister
I had an implant of one of my front teeth because one of the posts from my front bridge decayed and actually worked its way out through the back of my bridge which was following 2 years of trying to treat this by my dentist with cleaning, etc. I subsequently had the bridge removed (only 2 of the teeth, one tooth was left from the bridge) and had the root of the decayed tooth extracted. I was then given three options, one being an implant with an abutment, a bridge filing down a 4th tooth or a denture. I opted for the implant, as I thought this was the best option at the beginning of October 2009. I had to have a bone graft as the dentist commented after performing the implant that my bone wasn’t particularly good. I have had my third check up today and have been told that it doesn’t appear to have taken and although I have another check up at the beginning of February, it is likely that I will have to have it removed. I had a very bad reaction when the implant was initially done, a very swollen face and couldn’t face it again. I asked what would happen and was told by the dentist that I could redo the implant(!!) or resign myself to dentures! I am not very pleased about this, apart from parting with £1,000, as I was never advised that it might fail. If I had been told this, I might have chosen a different avenue. Could you advise me please?

I would like another option to denture fixative. Advise?

Thursday, May 12th, 2011
Q.

Hello Doctor
I have a 53 year old daughter with slight learning difficulties. She has
a full denture on the top and the bottom. She has great difficulty
keeping the bottom plate in place. She uses masses of fixative which
then ends up all over her face etc.., I want to know if there is any
possibility of her having a couple of implants that would then help to
hold her plate in place? I am not even sure if she could cope with
having implants or come to that if we could afford it. I am sorry I
can’t possibly make my question any longer. hope you can help

I have been neglecting my dental care for years and now my dentist tells me the treatment I need will be expensive.

Monday, April 18th, 2011
Q.

I have been neglecting my dental care due to fear and finance. I finally got the courage to see a dentist because I want to be able to smile in photos of me and my first grandchild. As of now I avoid them and he is 27 months. I told the dentist that I went to that I needed affordable dental care and he said there is no such thing. He said that my dental care would cost in excess of $18,000. I know that I need a lot of work including periodontal treatment but I don’t trust him. He suggested that I get dentures, I am only 47. I am afraid of going to see another dentist. He gave me a printout of my xrays, is there any online consultations that are available. Thank you so very much for your time

Can you tell me the best way to correct damaged teeth, besides dentures?

Friday, April 15th, 2011
Q.

My two front teeth were lost during an attack and the tooth to the left of my front teeth (my left) was pushed backwards and slightly behind another tooth. i have been given dentures w hich are slowly pushing my teeth apart and causing many gum problems, they dont fit propeerly and i bite on them occasionally. I am only 24 and this is extremely embarrasing for me, i cant smile as i they look so unnatural. Any suggestions as to what would be the best way to go, and how long any other treatment option would last????
