Hi I have a huge concern with my teeth

Monday, December 1st, 2008
Q.
Hi, I have a huge concern with my teeth. I have recently been confirmed as having enamel hypoplasia. Can you tell me anything about the etioliogy and pathology of this condition??? The destruction to my teeth is universal and quite serious. I am only 27 years old and this is a major problem for my self-esteem. I have seen a dentist specialising in oral diseases and aeasthetic surgical procedures and he sees my only option as having crowns put on all my 28 teeth (Yes! the damage is chronic!) I am just seeking a second (objective!) opinion based on this diagnosis and advice for treatment. Oh, and would the NHS provide this treatment? (Im assuming not). And another compounding issue is that I am a (struggling) student, financially independent from my parents. Speaking hypothetically, how much would this operation cost in the UK (with 3 root canal treatments also)?? Are the new ‘Procera-zirconium’ crowns the best on the market, and which crowns have the greatest resilience and longevity?? Thankyou.

My husband one week ago had a 6 tooth bridge

Wednesday, November 26th, 2008
Q.
My husband one week ago had a 6 tooth bridge(front teeth) put in. There are gaps at the top of the teeth. He had bone disease due to an injury when he was young. Is there any thing that can be done, we are discussing a partial so he would not have the gaps when he smiles. He has a gummy smile and was very upset having 4 teeth pulled and two crowns and his top of his teeth look bad and he talks like he has a mouth gaurd in! Thank you for your help!

I just received 3 implants last year

Friday, November 21st, 2008
Q.
I just received 3 implants last year. Cost was over 5000.00 and was performed by an oral surgeon. One implant failed and the oral surgeon ended up replacing it and threw in an extra implant at a reduced cost. (Total now is 4) Everything healed Great. My regular dentist has had the partial made by a lab. The partial is actually a bridge covering the 4 implants and a couple other missing teeth. He is charging almost a 1000.00 per tooth. Also charging 2400.00 for implant parts?? He called it precious metals? What would that be? He never mentioned that cost up front before doing this work. I feel I’m getting ripped off. The charges keep adding up.

Hello I seem to have a rotting decay in my mouth

Monday, November 17th, 2008
Q.
Hello, I seem to have a rotting decay in my mouth and have about 8 teeth already removed with several more falling apart and in bits(half a tooth or one with a big hole in), it runs in the family, i am only 28. i had my baby last year and the dentist(nhs) treated me for some of the work as he said he could not get funding for all the work that i needed. I went about 5 times. i said i wanted them all ripped out and he said he will refer me to the dentist hospital where they can do it all for free as they are in-training but said it can take ages. i have phoned the dentist but they just say it takes a while. Is this the only way to get dentures without paying the earth, your advice is much appreciated, many thanks
