How Much Would a Full Flexible Plate Cost Me?

Thursday, November 17th, 2016
Q.

Hi there. Well here we go. I have 7 top teeth left, all crowned or filled, I have a lot of pain from the teeth and I suffer terrible neuralgia, I’d say due to my terrible teeth. I am at the moment in terrible pain and have a dentist appointment on Monday. I know they will say take it out; I have now got to the point of saying take them all out. I really fancy a full flexible plate as the plate I have is appalling – I can’t eat or speak. How much would this cost me? Would I be able to wear the flexible one as soon as mine are extracted and would they extract as well as making me the new plate?

How Much Would It Cost to Have an Upper Implanted Denture?

Monday, November 14th, 2016
Q.

Can you tell me if you can provide sedation, and just a ball park price for an implanted upper denture? I just want to get an idea, I understand that many issues can affect the price, but I would still like to know, thank you. I will need 5 upper teeth removed, and I also would like one implant in my lower jaw. I do have a partial upper denture at the moment, but I have found I just cannot get used to them.

How Do I Choose the Right Dentist?

Friday, November 4th, 2016
Q.

The outer side of my top tooth broke just days after an inlay was put in. It has been repaired with some filling, which I was told could last for some time before I had to make a decision what to do next. This filling on the outside is becoming loose just after a few days. The solution now I suppose is a crown. But how do I find a dentist to do the job right as I lost confidence in my present dentist?

What Can Be Done About My Grandson’s Discolouration?

Friday, November 4th, 2016
Q.

My 12 year old grandson is losing the top layer of his two front teeth. They are really yellow and is affecting his confidence. He has had some treatment at the hospital where they scrape his teeth and paint on a layer. It looks good for a couple of weeks but then deteriorates. Is there anything that can be done? His dentist said not until he is at least 16 when he could possibly have veneers. I have contacted several dentists, they have said the same thing and that it has probably stemmed from his diet as a young child. I disagreed as he had a very good diet and never until this day drinks fizzy juice.

Where Can I Get a Mouth Makeover?

Friday, November 4th, 2016
Q.

Hi, I’m wondering if you could point me in the right direction. I’m 28 years old and I only have front teeth. They all have fillings. I suffered as a child with gum disease and never treated it. I really regret now as my face is sunken on both sides and I only have my front teeth to chew on, I’m in need of a teeth makeover but cannot afford to do this. I paid for a private denture for top and bottom but they have taken it down as much as they can. I’ts horrible, I would like implants. I am at the end of my teather, it makes me depressed and all I would like is a full mouth of teeth so I can chew like everyone else. The ones at front with fillings are all discoloured and you can tell I have fillings in front teeth by a mile off. Please, is there anything I can do or anyone that could or would be willing to give me a mouth makeover?

How Can I Get My Periodontal Disease Under Control?

Friday, November 4th, 2016
Q.

Please, I need help. I was diagnosed with having advanced periodontal disease when I was in my late 20s and now the bone that supports my teeth is almost nothing. I have already lost a few teeth and all my teeth are loose. I’m 52 years old but feel my life is over. My confidence has diminished, I’m depressed, I’m desperate for help or any advice you could give. I would be most grateful for help.

What Can You Tell Me About Dental Implants?

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016
Q.

I am quite worried about how many teeth I have lost. I am about to loose 3 more according to my dentist. My history is that many years ago I was the victim of an abusive boyfriend. I was hit so hard that I lost 2 teeth instantly. I then wore a transparent brace and then I had a bridge. I think over the years my teeth have been very weak. I would like some info on dental implants. This has affected my confidence immensely. I would welcome your thoughts.

What Can We Do to Save Our Child’s Teeth?

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016
Q.

My 7 year old daughter has gone to the private dentist with me regularly since she was a baby. I was told one day that she had decay and needed 2 small fillings. We dramatically changed her diet, reduced her sugar intake and tried harder when brushing her teeth. On a visit to an NHS dentist (we were referred by our own dentist as she had an abscess, which they said meant the tooth had to be extracted). The new dentist advised that most of her teeth were decayed (or decaying) and that she would have trouble all of her life and could lose lots of her teeth! We were horrified – should our dentist have helped us more and/or advised us so much sooner? Also, what can we do to improve the situation now please?
thank you.

How Much Would 15 Dental Implants Cost?

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016
Q.

What are your charges for about 15 implants, all the top row and three on the bottom? I need to know all procedures and the time it will take from start to finish. I will need a scan for bone density for this amount of work to be done. I have many missing teeth and need this work carried out soon. I have a small denture, which is highly uncomfortable and I gag every time I put it in my mouth. It has 5 teeth on it. This is why I think my best option is implants that you don’t need to ever take out to clean and are more comfortable.

Should I Get Invisalign or a Standard Retainer?

Monday, October 17th, 2016
Q.

I had braces from the end of middle school to the middle of my high school years. I lost my retainer about 2 years later and just never got a new one because my teeth never moved or changed. I just turned 22 and noticed my gap in my 2 front teeth is coming back, so I went back to my orthodontist, he told me that my gap is returning and my teeth are starting to go inward and he suggested either Invisalign or a standard retainer. I am not sure which one is best, do you have any advice?
