I Broke My Tooth Recently And I’ve Been Advised To Have A Bridge Or An Implant? Which Would You Advise?

Thursday, April 24th, 2014
Q.

Hi. I had broke my tooth a few days ago and went into my local NHS dentist and was told that the tooth is totally damaged, he could fill this with fillings but it won’t last very long and the other option is removal? I opted for the removal as this colour was totally discoloured from the filling and was ruptured as well.

I have been now advised to look at options of bridge or implant. Both teeth on either end of the missing tooth have a slight filling on them. What would you recommend I should do? I would appreciate your advice, could you also tell me what the cost implications would be for what you would recommend it. I was also told that I can have temporary dentures but will need to wait for at least 6 months till I decided which option to take as my bone needs to breath!

Is It Possible To Remove A Tooth And Then Fit A Bridge For A Better Appearance And To Boost My Confidence?

Thursday, April 24th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, I have a lower front tooth which is set much further back than the other three. Is it possible to remove the tooth and then fit a bridge for a better appearance? Although it is a healthy tooth it is very detrimental to my confidence. Having a straight set of lower front teeth would massively boost my confidence. Braces are far too expensive and because the other three teeth have now closed the gap and pushed it further back I believe it would take years to straighten, if it was even possible.

Many thanks.

I Am Really Upset As I Paid £3000 For Four New Teeth And They Failed. Do You Think A Bridge Would Be A Good Option?

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I hope you can answer my question. Last year I paid for four front porcelain crowns and I was also advised to have root canals which came to a total of £3,600. 3 months later one tooth came out when I was eating. Then, as months went on, all of them had to be cemented back in. The dentist now is replacing them with 4 teeth on a bridge. I am really most upset as 3 years ago I paid £3,000 for 4 new teeth and they failed. Do you think that a bridge a good option? Thank you for your reply.

Is It Possible To Have A Bridge To Replace Two Missing Teeth? My Dentist Thinks The Gap Is Too Big.

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have two missing teeth at the side and 3 crowns at the front. I have been told I can’t have a bridge to replace the two missing teeth. Is that right? My dentist said I have too big of a gap for a bridge to be fitted. But I know people that have had a full top row of teeth fitted onto a bridge. Could you tell me if this is true or not as I really can’t wear dentures? I have one with two teeth on it an can’t speak or eat with dentures in and this is really depressing me and I would really like your advice on it. Thank you so much.

How Much Would It Cost Me To Have A Two Bridges Fitted To The Front Of My Mouth?

Monday, April 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. Could you please advise how much it would cost to have two bridges fitted at the front of my mouth? I want gold with a porcelain cover (window). I currently have a gold cap that I want replaced with a bridge. The two teeth I want replacing are next to each other in the front of my mouth. I would appreciate your advice or any suggestions you may have. My NHS dentist has advised I may need a plate fitted, however I had this before and couldn’t wear it as it made me feel sick. Thank you for helping me.

I Have A Loose Front Tooth. Would A Cosmetic Dentist Be Able To Give Me A Bridge Instead Of A False Tooth?

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have a question for you that I hope you can help me with. I have a bridge on the right front part of my mouth. The false tooth on the bridge is next to my big front tooth. Now I have a loose front tooth on the left side of my mouth next to my big left tooth. My NHS dentist said I cannot have another bridge and would have to have a false tooth instead. This is something which I really don’t want. What I want to know is: would a cosmetic dentist be able to give me a bridge instead of a false tooth? Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I Don’t Like My Top Partial Denture And I Would Like A Rough Estimate Of How Much A Bridge Costs?

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. My problem is that I have a part denture at the moment, right hand side top, I think my dentist said they were, only one tooth was broken but my dentist took the two out, I didn’t realise at the time, because of the injection I couldn’t feel anything. I now have to wear this disgusting part denture and I hate it, it hurts the roof of my mouth. I would like to ask how much would it cost me to have a fixed bridge? And how long will it take to do? Thank you.

My Maryland Bridge Keeps Coming Loose But I’m Reluctant To Go Elsewhere As My Dentist Is Usually Fantastic. What Should I Do?

Thursday, March 27th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes. I have had a Maryland bridge (1) wing only fitted recently, I visited the dentist the day after I had it in as the bridge came out, this was then re-bonded. This lasted 2 days before it again came loose, the bridge was again refitted. It’s now loose again. The dentist can’t understand what’s gone wrong? He’s used to another type of adhesive? I need to ring again tomorrow. What should I do? I’m fed up and I have sore teeth, with all the bonding being taken on/off.  He is normally a fantastic dentist? Thank you in advance.

I Have A Long Front Bottom Tooth Which Is Very Noticeable When I Talk. What Treatment Could I Have For This?

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew, I have a question for you. I have a long front bottom tooth which is very noticeable when I talk. My dentist says it’s because of my bite as I have a bridge on my front upper set of teeth. It is greatly affecting my confidence and ideally I really need to sort this out. Could I have a brace fitted or maybe have the tooth capped?
What treatment could I have for this and what are the prices? Also is it possible to pay each month instead of all at once? I look forward to your reply. Thank you.

I Have A Missing Tooth Which Was Knocked Out Five Years Ago. Could I Have A False Tooth That’s Permanent?

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I currently have a missing tooth which was knocked out around five years ago, I am currently twenty years of age and it is really affecting my confidence, it is a front tooth and is on the top row. Do you know if I could have a false tooth that’s permanent and if so how much would it cost? Any information on all possibilities would be a welcome help. Also if I do eventually have a false tooth will a teeth whitening programme affect the tooth in any way? Thank you for your time and consideration.
