My dentist won’t answer my mini implant questions; can you?

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011
Q.

Hello Sunita,

I was wondering if I could get mini implants to keep a partial denture in place? I’ve had my upper -UR1 & 2 plus my UL1 & 2 taken out recently and been given a plastic partial denture by my Dentist. Please don’t get me wrong, she a great dentist but she’s not very forthcoming with information when I ask her questions. I don’t know why that is but it’s why I’ve come on here to ask you instead. I need to have as much info as I can take with me on my next visit in 2wks so I can ask the right questions. I had the 4 teeth I mentioned taken out only 2wks ago and my gum is healing up very nicely she said.

I guess the questions I nned answers to are: 1. Is it possible to have mini implants done with a partial denture and what is the best type of denture used when going with mini implants?? I would be very grateful for any info you could give me on this. Price is also very important to me so if you could send me any info on the mini implants and type of partial denture used for my problem then I would be very appreciative indeed.

My 2nd question is: What are the different types of implants? I’ve heard there are a few different types used? Does it depend on how much a client is willing to spend? If that’s the case then I would also like to know how many different types of full implants there are and what each implant would cost if it’s not too much to ask.

I’m really sorry to bore you with my questions but this is something very important to me right now and I really want to get it right. I’ve complately lost all confidence in myself of late and I’m worried I won’t get it back with just a denture that moves about in my mouth. I’m not comfortable with the partial denture unless I can get those Mini Implants in to keep the denture in place longterm. It would mean a lot to me to know and understand everything I need to before going back to my dentist soon. I know I should just asl her more forcefully but it’s not my way. She tends to put me off the subject everytime I get round to asking a question. Honestly! She will not allow me to ask a whole question in her surgery. She takes over as quick as she can and rants on until I’ve forgotten what it was I wanted to say..lol Any helpful info you can send me would be gratefully received on my part. I would be eternally grateful to you..

Thankyou very much,

What can I go about my gummy smile?

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011
Q.

Hi I have suffered with a gummy smile all my life. When I was 13 years old I asked what could be done and the only option was to have my bone under my nose lifted which I didn’t want and I am now 30 years old and desperate to look normal. I’ve been doing lots of reseach ‘ve been to my dentist who referred me to a periodontist who said he can’t help me and to contact a cosmetic dentist. I’m finding this very daunting as I don’t know which is the right treatment or who to go to. I’m really confused as to what I should be looking for and asking . I remember being told I have a 5mm excess gum and I hope there is something that can be done.

I am 15 will I be able to have cosmetic work done or will I have to wait?

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011
Q.

Hi, I am wondering if you are able to chip/scrap of the bottoms of the tooth so that they are all equal and straight. Also I would like to have my gaps filled and teeth whitened however I’m only a teenager, I’m 15 so I doubt my teeth would have not full developed. Would you only do this on extreme conditions or if I was to request it, also how much would this cost? I have done some research and I have found baking soda does actually help whiten your teeth. Anyway thank you for taking the time to read my dilemma hope you can help thanks.

I look forward to your reply.

Thank you.

Do I really need to have healthy teeth removed for orthodontic work?

Monday, August 22nd, 2011
Q.

hello doctor
i got braces two months ago …i had two missing incisors (congenitally) so my ortho. decided to fill the gaps with my canines then reshape them as incisors … now i will get braces for my lower jaw . my lover teeth are totally fine and straight but the ortho decided that i should extract two lower teeth just because i have two missing teeth in the upper jaw and not to make space for moving the lower teeth !!! i am really scared because i don’t like to extract those perfectly fine teeth while people are paying hundreds of dollars on teeth implants … and i hears also that my face will never look the same once those teeth are removed !!!! my question is that should i need to extract those two teeth ? or there is another option? please help!

I have accidentally removed a lot of tooth enamel, is there anything I can do?

Friday, August 19th, 2011
Q.

I have been using high strength ascorbic acid for two weeks. The bottle says brush teeth after use. I have and now I have removed lots of enamel off my teeth. I am in so much pain. How long will this pain last and how long does it take to remineralise the teeth. My dentist is unsure of the degree of loss and has painted temporary varnish to heal my teeth. How long does it take the teeth to remineralise or will I suffer forever. My teeth are very see through.

Help Iam getting married in three weeks and before this had lovely teeth. I am so upset.

Thank you for your time

I’m 13 years old, why can I not get braces on the NHS?

Friday, August 19th, 2011
Q.

Why wont the NHS fund my braces?

I went to the orthodontist in hope to get braces for my teeth, and my orthodontist said i have a 4mm overbite and overjet and also a lot of gaps that are the same size throughout my teeth. She said I would have to go private if i want them. I would need a standard brace which about 2000 – 3000 pounds. My mum cannot afford that because she does not work because my brother has autism and he gets fed through a tubein his stomach. Also he cannot talk. So she has to stay at home to look after him and take him to school. I just want straight teeth, i hate smiling because everybody sees my horrid teeth. By the way I am 13 years old.

Could I be allergic to my crown?

Thursday, August 18th, 2011
Q.

I had a crown placed on a back molar on July 5th, 2011. I was told it was a ceramic crown, with glass Ionimic cement with something called Metho Metholonate in the glue or cement. I have experienced hives in the warmest places of my body, every night, during sleep. I wake up at 5 am covered with large itchy welts that are even on my face and head. I was told there was no metal in the ceramic cap placed on my tooth. I was given a shot in the tooth area, and was awake during the process. Is it possible that I am still allergic to some of this anesthetic, or that there is some kind of alloy in the ceramic that is triggering these hives. I am at wit’s end. I haven’t got a food allergy, nor clothes soap etc. All have been tried and I still have these. Can you shed some light on the possible cause of these hives? I am taking two 25 mg. tablets of Hydroxyzine Hcl per night, and still experience the hives. Thanks you for your kind consideration.
