I am losing teeth, what could I do to stop this and fill the gaps left?

Friday, March 18th, 2011
Q.

Good afternoon,

I am a 28 year old male with a loose tooth in my lower jaw. If I count from the front backwards it is the 4th tooth in. I have healthy gums and visit my dentist (NHS patient) every six months for routine checks. I have only 2 fillings having recieved my 2nd aprox 1 year ago.

I have had orthodontic treatment as a child and have also had teeth removed as part of treatment due to over crowding. The tooth that is loose has been for aprox over 10 years. If it is knocked by hard food it will usually tighten after a week or so, however recently it was disturbed by eating something hard and I think it is on its last legs. This tooth is sits between a canine tooth and a back molar. So, in total in my lower jaw I have 4 big back molars, 4 smaller back molars, 2 canines, 4 incisors at the front and this one odd loose tooth between a small molar and canine. This particular tooth I believe should have been removed during my orthodontic treatment but for whatever reason was not. Now it is ready to come out and I will be left with a noticeable gap.

In your experience what would you recommend be put in place or what treatment is available?

Regards.

I have a cough that developed after my titanium implant, could this be a cause?

Friday, March 18th, 2011
Q.

I Have just had a titanium implant and have developed a productive cough with wheeze that is not responding to any medical or natural therapies. This cough developed 2 day after implant and i have now had it for 5 months. I have a horriable feeling that the procedure although sucessful has somehow caused a reaction in my system producing these symptoms. I have never had a chest infection or asthma or sinus problems before this. Can you please advise or give me some answers.

Should I get implants, a bridge, or a combination?

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011
Q.

My Bridge has broken and has over the last few years come out more regularly, my dentist who is a NHS has told me that I need to get a plate fitted and wants to remove my teeth which have been subject to root canal surgery so are just stumps in my gums now, I can afford to go private but my question is a plate (3 teeth) best or is it best to have implants or something else done, my Bridge is a 2 prong either side (one has broken off) with a extra tooth in the middle, so a 3 gap bridge, also if I have the bridge will I be able to eat properly thanks

Can I get Dental Implants on the NHS?

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011
Q.

Hi Andrew, I unfortunately had to have my second to front tooth removed in June last year as it had fractured and was not considered suitable to save. I wanted to have an implant immediately, but after xrays ti was found that I did not to have sufficient bone in the upper part of my gum to do this. I was advised to wait at least 6 – 12 months before proceeding. During this time I have been wearing a plate with a false tooth. This is very uncomfortable and despite using a fixitive it moves and irritates my palette, causing discomfort. I have had enough and really want an implant to give me back some confidence. I have no idea how i fractured my tooth in the first place, but it was covered with a veneeer, and i wondereed if this could have caused the fracture by weakening the tooth? I want the implant desperately but the cost is a huge factor, having already spent £2’500 on 4 veneers in the last few years I cannot afford to spend more! Could I get it done on the NHS as it is a visable tooth and is negatively affecting my self esteem?
