Hi, I’m a very nervous patient looking to be sedated so work can be done. It’s been many years since I’ve been to a dentist for this reason (I’ve had bad experiences) but now I’m in pain. I think I need a good few fillings and one tooth is broken really badly. I also have a wisdom tooth coming up which hasn’t got a lot of room. Can anyone be sedated and what is the price? I feel this is my only option as I am so scared. Many thanks.

Hi. I have a bridge/crown on the my front three teeth which I have had for at least 20 years. It is now feeling very weak and is going to fail at any time. I was wondering if dental implants would be an option, and if so how long would they take to fit (do you need weeks for the implants to settle?) and I’m conscious that I would be left with a gap. Do you have any idea of the rough costs? I know it’s a little vague but just thought that I would ask the question before booking an an initial assessment. Many thanks.
I need an expert’s opinion on implants. If I can have implants it wont be straight forward as I have a second tooth in the
roof of my mouth which never descended when my milk tooth eventually fell out when I was 35 years old .I was told that I was too old to have the tooth removed from top of my mouth. Now at the age of 63 I need implants and wonder if it would get the way. I feel only an expert would be able to deal with this.
Hi, I’ve got a ceramic crown fitted on the tooth next to my 2 front teeth. My gums have started to recede so it’s black above it, also there’s a gap between my second and third teeth, would I be able to have a gold frame and gold to fill the gap between the two teeth? It’s starting to give me a complex about smiling! Also my dentist doesn’t seem to be interested when I mention it to him so I hope you can help please.
I had braces at the age of 23 (9 years back). My 4 premolars were removed. The braces were on for 2 years and afterwards retention plates were kept on for 6 months. Since the last 4 years, my front teeth have been protruding again. What is the reason for this? Is there any solution for it now? I went to my orthodontist, he said it is because I didn’t consult him earlier. Also, although my teeth are now protruding, not much of a gap has been created.
I saw you on this morning and thought you came across as approachable and the work you had done was amazing. I could not afford this treatment but wondered if you knew of anywhere where you could go as a patient for students. I have missing teeth and it really depresses me. I had breast surgery some years ago which has left me with a deformity but doesn’t bother me anywhere as much as my teeth. All I can get with the NHS is a very ill fitting denture but now it’s got where I don’t have any confidence at all. The denture is forever falling out and the plate just makes me gag. Most of my lower back teeth are missing. I had a school dentist many years ago who removed four and two of these never were replaced with adult teeth. I feel like my face is now sinking and wasting away.
Hello, I have just watched your interview on Northwest Tonight. You mentioned that your clinic does interest free credit over 36 months. Please could you tell me a little more about this and how I would go about booking an initial consultation with yourself? I have had a lot of dental work in the past, bridges etc. For a while now my 2 front teeth have been moving further apart and it certainly doesn’t feel safe to eat certain kinds of foods.
Hi, I saw the work that you did on the lady on This Morning. I have had numerous problems with my top teeth for years – numerous crowns and bridges and now a tooth on a plate. I am 55 years old but have kept myself in fairly good condition on the whole.I am very embarrassed about my teeth. I have never let my partner see me without my teeth in. I have had many problems with my gums also. I have even glued my teeth back in, desperate measures I know, but I was abroad at the time and that seemed the only solution. I have recently given up smoking to help with my health and gums too. I have had a quote for implants which was well out of my means. Please could you help? Many thanks.
