I had a decayed tooth but the root remains, what should I do?

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011
Q.

Dear Dr Julian Caplan

I�d really appreciate your advice. What do you recommend me to do next?
Because of badly decay(due to being badly filled before), I got my moral tooth removed on lower jaw, not completely the dentist couldn�t remove the roots, do I need complete root removal?
It�s so sad to hear that absence of one tooth can cause serious problems.

What do you advise me to do to fill the empty place of the removed tooth? Can it really result in serious things.

Looking forward to your reply.

What is the difference between porcelain onlays and veneers for teeth?

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011
Q.

Hi Dr Kaplan,
I was just wondering what the difference was between porcelain veneers and porcelain onlays for front teeth, and whether there is an advantage in one over the other, or a difference in cost.
Cheers,

Should I start Implant treatment?

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011
Q.

I have lost several back teeth (mostly crowns) and have been told that if I lose one more then I will need a plate or further treatment.

I was wondering if it is adviseable to start implant treatment now as I have read that it takes several months for the post into the bone to settle before a crown etc can be fitted?

Also is there a list of reputable dentists who deal with this treatment. Many thanks

How much would my new bridge cost?

Monday, March 21st, 2011
Q.

Dear Dr. Julian Caplan

I have one teeth on the top which is not straight and i been offered to take it off and put the bridge instead, but the price which i have been offered is not acceptable for me.

Could you please tell me how much the prices may vary for the zirconia bridge cemented with all ceramic bridge.
I already have a treatment plan written for me and i also have the professional photos of my teeth.

So it would be great if you could have a look and tell me approximate price?

Thanks

Regards,

How viable will my bridge be if it is attached to a cracked molar?

Friday, March 18th, 2011
Q.

My last lower molar is cracked through and I have a missing molar next to it. I have been advised to have a bridge to attach to the cracked molar with a pontic to bridge the gap and the bridge to attach to the next tooth in which has been filled twice. Is it likely that the bridge will be viable and give longevity given the fact that the anchor molar is cracked?
