My Gums Are Diseased And A Tooth Is Loose, Can I Get Veneers?

Monday, March 4th, 2013
Q.

Hi iv recently been told i have the start of gum disease and one of my front teeth is loose i have had root canal but dont know what the cause is, as im only 22years old my looks are very important to me and im worried now that my tooth may fall out. This is causing issues with my confidence and is affecting what used to be a very good social life so i really wish to get it sorted, so rather than have a false tooth fitted I would like a front set of veneers as these seem like the best looking option So my questions are Would that be possible? how much would that cost me? Could i get any information on veneers etc/ And where would my nearest clinic be for consultation? Many thanks

I Regret Having My Original Teeth Out, What Are My Options Now?

Friday, March 1st, 2013
Q.

I am a class-III under-bite patient. I have undergone a procedure recently during which my 4 upper front teeth were removed recently and doctor gave me Zirconia bridge. This was placed onto my two canines by grinding it right down. My dentist suggested to procedure so I thought it would all work out absolutely fine. At first it seemed okay however later I realised that I have done biggest mistake in my life by removing my original teeth.I realise that I cannot get these back so have tried to gain advice.  I have consulted many other doctors who are suggesting to go for Jaw surgery for correction and then they can place two implants to support new teeth.

Kindly advise me to take the decision please.

Can You Treat Infection Without Replacing Existing Veners

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013
Q.

I’ve had veneers placed in my two front teeth about six years ago due to a tragic blow to my two front teeth. I recently went to a dentist in regards to a wisdom tooth that is coming in, when looking at the x-rays my dentist noticed that there was an infection around the two veneers, examined the two small blister like bumps at the very tgop of my gums where my veneers are. She then right away said I needed to see a specialist in regards to a dental implant. I was so worried and know this can cost MORE than veneers. She didn’t say if the infection has spread to the bone, but did notify me if I waited x amount years it could.
Is there any other solution to treat the infection so that way my veneers DONT need to be replaced?

Am I Being Overcharged For A Bridge?

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013
Q.

Hello doctor Bohara, In my lower right incisor I am still retaining my milk tooth which I am looking to replace. I am told by my dentist Dr. Malik that it will be done with a Maryland dental bridge. I have been quoted £1400-£1800 for the Bridge depending on if it’s metal or resin bonded. I thought this cost was a little too steep, I get this feeling sheet having looked at maryland bridge pricing in London on the Internet. Could you please advice me on this issue?

Thank you

How Much Will It Cost To Have A Full Set Of Dentures?

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013
Q.

Hello doctor Bohara, I;m 39 years old and I had front dentures put in at a young age but now i would like to get a full set for the rest of my teeth because the rest of my teeth are in poor condition. I would need to be put to sleep for taking my teeth out because I’m a very nervous patient. How expensive would it be to have this done. Also, will I have to go any amount of time without dentures in because I would find that difficult and be too ashamed to do anything without any teeth. This is my last hope, I hope you can help me make my dream to smile again a reality, and bring my confidence back, Thanks,

Am I Being Overcharged For Implants?

Thursday, January 17th, 2013
Q.

I have a broken front tooth which was previously root filled many years ago. I broke the tooth whilst biting onto a hard fruit. I have seen many dentists who have said that a simple crown cannot be fitted as the tooth has broken to the jaw line…or something along that route. I am looking or a more permanent solution to bridging or dentures, and want to have an implant placed. My local dentist has this facility but are charging £2500 for the whole procedure, fixtures and fitting. I am a very nervous patient who absolutely hates going to the dentist. I have looked online and it seems my dentist surgery is asking for a lot of money compared to many sites who stare implants can be placed from £1000. I would like to know how much is a reasonable price for a front tooth implant to be put in place. please do help me. Thank you kindly

Do I Need Braces?

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013
Q.

I’m wondering if I need braces. I’ve had confidence issues with my teeth for a while now (as I also have a gap tooth which I wouldn’t mind closed up a little bit more but overall I’m okay with that now) and I feel like now would be the time to get braces, if I need them. I went for a consultation with an orthodontist and he said that I did not need braces as my teeth have a good bite, but my front teeth really do stick out. They aren’t crooked or anything but they protrude at about a 30 degrees angle, instead of growing straight down. Do you think I need braces? The orthodontist I went to said that if I were to get braces to fix this problem, I wouldn’t get the procedure on the NHS. Is this true? Would retainers help my situation at all (I like the idea of something you can take off, I’m not keen on wearing braces for 2+ years buy I’ll do it if necessary)? And if braces aren’t the answer what can I do to stop them protruding so much?

I Have A Chipped Tooth And Want It Repaired. How Much Do You Think It Will Cost?

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr. Kalpesh Bohara, I have a chipped tooth (front tooth) and I wanted to have composite bonding. Please can you advise how much it would cost to repair a chipped tooth using this method. It is only chipped in one corner of the tooth. The tooth has been chipped for a long time but  and I did want it sorted when it happened however my teeth were crooked and I had to have braces put on. I have only just had my braces removed and was interested in getting my chipped tooth repairs years ago however my dentist had told me not to repair the chip now and advised me that I should get my teeth straightened first. And now my braces are off and my teeth are all straight. So the priority now is getting my chipped tooth repaired now and I shall have the smile I want. And advice you can offer will be helpful. I look forward to reading your response doctor. Thank you.

Following A Blow To The Face, My Teeth Are Pushed Back Slightly. Is This Just The Swelling Or Do I Need To See A Dentist?

Monday, January 7th, 2013
Q.

I was struck in the face by a fleeing suspect the other day at work – they had me sent to the ER just to be safe, everything seemed fine other than bruised and swollen, however, since then I’ve noticed that my left front incisor and the tooth next to it (before the canine) are pushed slightly back, and the incisor is angled ever so slightly so the front incisors are no longer even. It’s very annoying because now my lower incisor hits the top one if I’m not super careful while chewing. I’m still swollen (it’s only been about 30 hours since it happened), and none of the teeth seem to be loose at all. Could this be a result of the swelling, or should I be contacting HR to get my teeth looked at as soon as I can open my mouth that far (still too swollen for anyone to get a good look at anything)?
