How much would it cost to have an implant where my upper molar used to be?

Thursday, August 16th, 2012
Q.

Hi, Doctor Hughes, I am looking into having a dental implant on the upper left first bicuspid tooth, I lost it a number of years back and wanted to get this done but haven’t really looked into it until now. Just dropping you a message just to get some information on it basically. I am looking to get this done as soon as possible. I have some more work, which needs doing, but this was something I wanted to get done first and then look to getting the other things sorted. Thanks in advance for any advice!

How much should I expect to pay for a single tooth implant?

Friday, August 10th, 2012
Q.

Hello, Dr Moore. I wondered if you could tell me how much would I be expected to pay for, a single dental implant? I require tooth replacement in the upper back left of my mouth, as it currently has a huge filling in it and my dentist thinks it will need replacing pretty soon. I also think I may need braces, here is the situation: My teeth are not overly misaligned but I would like a nice smile with straight teeth. I feel tooth whitening may help my teeth also and I require a new veneer of my front left tooth which will need replaced following teeth whitening. What do you think, how much all of this treatment cost me?

I hate my sunken smile, how can I fix this?

Monday, August 6th, 2012
Q.

Hi doctor,i have a couple of questions. I had braces and had my 4 teeth extracted because i was not going to have enough space for my teeth to straighten out and with no teeth taken out my teeth were going to be to crowded and my lips were going to be sticking out to much( since i have thick lips). It was 2 from the top and 2 from the bottom and had no wisdom teeth cause they were taken out all 4 long time ago. My gums were being pulled back to close the gaps of the extracted tooths. At the end, all my teeth were straight but now my mouth looks like its sunken and my lips dont show anymore. I would like to have my lips back.Can the gums go back to where they were before and the same with the teeth? I know that i will be having the gap open, but is there a way i can have my teeth straight, and my lips outward without having my mouth looking sunken. Everytime i smile my teeth are straight but my smile looks sunken and my lips too, i dont like my smile.Know i wish i hadn’t taken any teeth out even if they were crooked. I had advised my orthodontist that i din’t wanted for my mouth to look sunken but there was nothing else to do, it was too late, the gaps were not yet closed. Do i need to consider tooth implant?How can this be fix. Please help me. Thank you for your time.

The bone used for dental implant treatment has failed, now what?

Monday, August 6th, 2012
Q.

My partner started implant treatment for a front tooth. The implant was put in, but the gum started to deteriate. He has now had a number of bone and gum grafts, but they all fail and now seem to be worse than when it was started.

The gum has been taken from his palette and the front of his mouth, is secured by stitches. After a few days however the gum disapears.

One of the dentists suggested the bone be removed from his chin, as the bone imported isnt working.

The dentist has provided little advice, and we dont know where it will go from here.

Do you have any advice?

What ways are there other than braces to fill tooth gaps?

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012
Q.

HI, i had a tooth extracted from each side of my mouth, these were different teeth of either side. I have had braces on for over 18 months now, and the gaps have are not closed, one the one side the gap is quite significant. I am a dancer, so having good teeth are quite important as i can’t work with the braces on. My orthodontist says that the gap is going to take a long time to close, but i cant have the braces on for any longer. My dentist is wondering why my orthodontist took my teeth out in the first place. so i was wondering if there was any way of filling the gaps on both sides, one side is larger than the other. I dot mind what happens as long as it isnt orthodontics, because i need a fast solution and have had braces on for long enough . Thanks :)

Will I need dentures before I am 50?

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. I have had advanced gum disease for about 20 years owing to my fear of going to the dentist, previous traumatic experiences at the dentist and poor hygeine. At the age of 42 I have now fortunately overcome my fear and found a lovely gentle dentist and I am now having regular checkups and hygeine sessions. I also been referred for and have undergone peridontal treatment in the last two years, and I am maintaining good dental hygeine every day. However my degree of gum disease has led to a significant amount of bone loss. I currently have most of my teeth, but many of my upper teeth are loose and my dentist does not hold out much hope for me holding on to them long term. I have a crown on one front tooth, and a veneer on the other front tooth. My gums have receded so far that the crown peg is visible now and the tooth with the veneer is similarly receded, exposing the part of the tooth which originally would have been hidden in the gum. My other top front teeth are discoloured and gappy and I am very self conscious about my teeth. My bottom teeth are reasonably secure. I really would like some advice about what to do next. My dentist is reluctant to replace my front veneer as the tooth is already loose and he doesn’t want to disturb it further. My crown will have to be replaced shortly I think. I would like to know what the options might be for someone like me who has significant bone loss. Are implants out of the question, or am I really now facing the prospect of wearing dentures before I am 50? I would really appreciate your advice regarding my options and the possible costs involved if implants could be an option – at least for my top front teeth.

Many thanks.

I have lost a lot of the enamel on my teeth, do I need dental implants?

Wednesday, July 4th, 2012
Q.

Hi my teeth have lost loads of enamel on my teeth. i have several crowns due to this and bonding on the majority of my back teeth which comes away several times a year which they replace. i have looked at dental implants but would like to know a little more to see if this procedure is for me. I saw an advert about where you can have it done in a day but cannot find any details about it. i pay privately for my dental treatment each month. but they are reluctant to do any thing else for me. i have i think two 3-4 crown on the back teeth and an awaiting a further one and my front top four are crowned, the front ones are very old now.

My gums are inflamed, does my tooth need to be extracted?

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012
Q.

Dear Andrew, I have advanced periodontitis with furcation at the site of my second molar. At the moment it looks like a small dark dot at the gum line. ‘Tunneling’ has been mentioned to me as a possible type of treatment to aid with cleaning at this site. It was suggested to try cleaning with a very small tepe and for some reason (although I am always very careful) it seems to have internally inflamed the whole lower side which is painful. My question is, and I am wondering, if it may be best to have it extracted or what the general, approximate outcome is for a tooth that is tunneled to help with home cleaning. A difficult question I know. Thank you for reading and for your time.

Can I find dental implant treatment for £1500?

Monday, April 23rd, 2012
Q.

Hi,

I am 20 years old and I recently cracked my baby tooth. I went to the dentist and was told that there is not an adult tooth underneath my current tooth and therefore will need the implant to placed. The tooth is the middle bottom tooth.

How much will it cost to get an implant placed? I checked a local periodontist, and to have one tooth placed it costs £2200, which is rather expensive. I am looking for treatment that will cost £1500 or less. Furthermore, how long is the whole process from consultation until the end of treatment?

Thank You
