How Much Would My Filling Cost From A Private Dentist?

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013
Q.

I have been to see an NHS dentist and says the enamel on my teeth is badly worn out. Was given a fluoride toothpaste but there was no improvement. I think the best bet would be to fill it, and am thinking of going private to make it quicker cos my NHS dentist keep asking me to come back next week and then another week and so on. It is really annoying cos all I need is to sort the tooth out so the pain can go cos it is giving me headache in my head and pain in my ears. NHS is wasting my time. So I would love to go private and would like a rough estimate of the fees am going to be paying for filling on private treatment.

As A 60 Year Old, Is Gum Recession Something I Must Live With?

Thursday, May 16th, 2013
Q.

Hi
I have had recently some gum problems
I am coming up to 60 years old next birthday and although i do not have any problems with my teeth i do have some gum shrinking at the bottom front part of my mouth,
is this a common problem or is there something i could have done as although it does not cause me any pain it is quite a uncomfortable feeling in my mouth?

I have had cleaning work done on my teeth but no gum work done as yet. I have read a little about gum recession and shrinking but obviously directly asking an expert like yourself would prove more beneficial.

Can I book An Appointment With You?

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013
Q.

Hi there, just a general question for you. I was wondering do you do free consultations to see what work I need done with my teeth? I have a tooth missing and I would like to know if I can have a crown fitted, also I am interested in veneers for my front teeth. My teeth have been a slight concern for a while now so now I have the money I’d like to think about my options with regards to getting my teeth looking healthy and fresh. Also how long does it take to get an appointment with yourselves? I would like an appointment as soon as possible to be honest. I look forward to your reply. Thank you.

Can My Partner Get His Treatment For Free?

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013
Q.

My partner has been having many issues with his teeth and when the problem worsened recently, we decided to do something about it. So, he went to see someone. My partner has been to his dentist a few times recently as his teeth are cracking and chipping. After going to the dentist, his dentist has filled them in but now for some bizarre reason, with in a week they are chipping and cracking again. His dentist said it’s because his bite is out and suggested he could have his top 3 teeth crowned and he would have to pay £1300 for this as he said its cosmetic. Do you think its cosmetic? as its causing him discomfort and can be very sensitive we thought it could be done free of charge do you agree?

My Two Orthodontic Consultations Have Conflicted With Each Other, Which Is Correct?

Monday, April 29th, 2013
Q.

Hi doctor!!

I have got a dental bridge done in my back upper tooth and also have an open bite.

I have been advised to have some orthodontic treatment as there is a slight overlap in my incisors and also the adjacent tooth are slightly smaller.

I have consulted two dentists and have got a little confused, hence the query.

While one says it can be sorted out by braces which will take 8-10 months or I can just get the front 4 teeth corrected by replacing my teeth with artificial ones which can enhance the smile, the other doctor is of the opinion that as I have a bridge, braces would be complicated and might take 2 years to correct the alignment or I can just get the front 4 tooth corrected by grinding them and placing veneers on top.

Also, I have read that veneer
s are not a good option for people who grind teeth at night and I am one of them.

Please suggest what should i do,.

Thanks in advance.

Do I Really Need To Get A Bridge?

Friday, April 26th, 2013
Q.

Hello there – I wonder if you can help. I am 50+ and have always retained 2 of my “baby” teeth (at the upper front) One of these recently broke (I have it reattached temporarily) and I would prefer an implant as opposed to a bridge. I have been advised that the gap will be too small to accommodate an implant…..I have been to a cosmetic dentist in Nottingham for a 2nd opinion and he also is of this opinion……Do I really need to resort to having a bridge? I’m not too ken to be perfectly honest. I would rather just have an implant but I thought I would ask you as well, hope to hear from you soon.  Many thanks – Kind regards.

I Have A Gap In My Teeth, What Are My Treatment Options?

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi I was wondering if I could get your expert opinion on a problem that I am currently facing , my front teeth has a lot of gaps this is because in my childhood I had calcium deficiency so my milk teeth fell at irregular intervals and the milk teeth were replaced by new teeth after what seemed to be a long time, my upper section of teeth are a bit protruding, I have already consulted a dentist and he has advised me to go for braces, but to go for that option I have to been told that I will need to extract some teeth which I am not ready to under go, due to the simple fact that it seems like it could be a daunting task and I have never had anything like that done in the past… I would be extremely grateful if you could  please suggest  me some alternative forms of treatment I could undergo which aren’t as petrifying.

Can My Veneers Be Replaced Under Sedation?

Monday, April 22nd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Bohara,

Approximately 15 years ago my front tooth (top) cracked and I was given veneers on my two front teeth. I believe these have now run their course and require replacing as they feel like they are coming away from my teeth and they no longer meet my gums.

I believe that the cracked tooth is dying and that I need a root canal treatment to fix it, and that both veneers would need to be replaced. In addition to all of these things, my teeth are quite badly discoloured and I am frightened to take any steps to whiten them in case I damage the veneers further or end up with some white teeth and some discoloured teeth.

To make matters worse I am absolutely terrified of the dentist or having any work done on my teeth so I have been putting this off for some time now (I needed to be sedated to remove one wisdom tooth). However I am frightened my front tooth will fall out and then I’ll have no choice but to do something.

Please could you tell me what options are available to me in terms of treatment, sedation (conscious or not) and likely cost?

Many thanks.

I Am A Nervous Patient And Have Severe Gum Disease, Can You Help Me?

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013
Q.

Hi I suffer with severe gum disease and I have lost almost all my gum surrounding my 2 bottom teeth. I am also a very nervous patient and havent been to my dentist for 2 yrs as he doesnt understand. He has also said nothing can be done about my gums but ive heard of a procedure where u remove good gum and put it on the affected area. Ive been looking but cannot find a dentist where I live that deals with peridontal disease. Im really desperate as I dont want my teeth to fall out. When ive been to the dentist in the past ive been made to feel like I dont brush my teeth but they r brushed twice sometimes 3 times a day, I did used to smoke. Ive been suffering with this since I was 15 and im now 30.
I would b really grateful for some advice and guidance.
Thanks.
