Can i get dental implant on my two front teeth instead of having partial dentures

Thursday, October 8th, 2009
Q.
I will soon be getting a partial upper denture. At first we had planned on keeping my front 7 teeth. I was looking forward to getting them capped. Especially front 2. Now I was told I can only keep 5 and one of my front teeth has to be extracted. A couple of questions. #1 What work should be done first the extractions or putting the crowns on teeth I will be keeping. Then do the extractions? #2 If they have to remove one of my front teeth why not take them both and put in implants. Then the partial could attach to them. If they can only save 5 teeth and want to crown them wouldnt it be better to have them leave 2 to crown and get 2 implants in front. I think it seem strange to have one front tooth attached to a partial and one capped dont you? Thanks..

Is it normal to get pain and aching or strange sensations after crown fitted

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009
Q.
I had a crown fitted a couple of years ago on a bottom molar. I suffered a lot of pain shortly after it was fitted and at an emergency appointment with a dentist it was necesary for a hole to be put in crown to relieve pressure caused by bleeding.The hole was of course filled afterwards. The crown is still sensitive from time to time – I get pain or aching or strange sensations which lasts for a few days and then it settles. Is this normal and if not what is the likely cause?

what can be done to fix large gap after porcelain veneers

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009
Q.
Good Morning, I wonder if you can help me? 10 years ago, I had porcelain veneers put on 5 of my top teeth(I have a missing right lateral incisor) The reason for the veneers,was to close up the gaps in between my teeth and to make the gap from the missing tooth smaller. However I still have a large gap, due to the missing lateral incisor and I am wondering what can be done to fix it and give me a symetrical smile. I have been told that I may have to wear braces, but I wonder if there is anything else that can possibly done?

Is 0.01% hydrogen peroxide will work for whitened teeth

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009
Q.
Hi im interested in getting my teeth whitened, however how is this allowed as i read an article that says th Eu only allows 0.01% hydrogen peroxide. Surely this wouldnt work. MY dentist says he can do it but im now sceptical as it sounds illegal and dangerous. Can you help, thanks
