I am looking for an experienced prosthodontist in the Central London area, can you recommend anyone?

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012
Q.

Hello there Dr Hughes. I am currently looking for an experienced prosthedontist in central London for my octagenarian mother who suffers from enormous problems with her teeth. She has an upper denture which has split recently and had a new one made which doesn’t fit correctly. This in turn causes her a lot of pain & distress and she really needs some assistance. Do you think you qualify under her requirements? or can you suggest any practices that I can turn to on her behalf? Thank you in advance from myself and my mother.

How long will it take for my gums to heal after having 15 teeth extracted?

Monday, August 13th, 2012
Q.

How long does it normally take for gums to heal after an extraction of 15 teeth before someone can be fitted for dentures. I know that there are some places that do immediate dentures but i can’t afford that. I am going to get my teeth extracted next week there are 15 teeth all together one has a cap and one is a wisdom tooth. I don’t want to be without teeth for a long time so if you could please just give me an estimated time i would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

Would the most cost effective option for me be a lower denture?

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012
Q.

Hi, I am in need of some direction. First off, I do not have insurance and have maxed out my care credit card. I had my lower left second premolar and first and second molars removed a while ago due to not being able to afford any dental care. Well not my top teeth are growing into my gums where I have no teeth and its painful. What would be my best, inexpensive option? Should I have the bottom teeth pulled get a lower denture? thank you for your time doctor hughes

Are dentures my only option?

Friday, June 24th, 2011
Q.

Hello Dr Moore
Please can you help me, i have severe bone loss in my gums the teeth that i have left are very mobile, and make it difficult to eat, my dentist said my only option is dentures, this makes me very sad. But if that is the case is there such a thing as realistic dentures? My remaining teeth have all moved and so they look crowded in some places and gaps in other places. I find myself trying not to smile as i am very aware that my teeth do not look very nice, my dentist said that only 2% of the population have this really bad gum condition, i have looked into going abroad for treatment because of the cost, but i think because of my problems it would be wise to get any work done here in the uk. Thank you in advance for your reply. KInd regards

My dentist tells me I don’t have enough bone for dental implants, what are my options?

Friday, June 17th, 2011
Q.

Hello Doctor. 

I had my 4 front teeth extracted 30 years ago, and I now want dental implants. I do not have sufficient bone in that area. Do I have to have bone taken from my jaw or other parts of my body, or is there a bone substitute that could be used. I know that impants can be costly, but my confidence has taken a beating with having to wear a denture first and then a fixed brace, which envolved stripping my 2 canines to use as the anchor teeth. I am female and in my early 50,s. I would really appreciate your reply and thank you for your time.

Are dentures the only option for teeth replacement?

Friday, June 17th, 2011
Q.

I am 44 years old and have lost all my teeth apart from 4 front teeth at the bottom which the gums are receiding despite brushing my teeth several times a day and using mouth wash.
I lost my teeth due to the negligence of a local dentist who i visited at the age of 25 to have some fillings in my back teeth when the dentist looked in my mouth he told me i would loose all my front upper teeth if he did not give them urgent treatment panic stricken I
agreed he then filed my 6 upper front teeth down to stubs and put temporary caps on,when he fitted the permanant caps they had gaps at the back where I
could put my tounge in,when complained
he told me I had used up my NHS funds and he could do nothing for 6 months.
Ileft his surgery in tears and went straight to another dentist who treated me every week for at least a year replacing the teeth with teeth on a sort of screw (not sure what you call them) these have now all come out.
I built up the courage 4 years ago to go to a dentist who removed most of the
roots apart from my upper 2 front.
They made me a denture but I cannot have anything at the top of my mouth as i continuosley gag.
I cannot afford implants as I am on benifits what can i do to be able to smile again. I have locked myself away for 10years now only going to my parents
and local shops because im so embarressed, I have brought up my two daughters alone and now there 16 nd 19
and out and about i feel so lonley. I would love to get out agin Im still very
pretty, please tell me if there is any way I can get my mouth sorted out.
I also suffer from narcolepsey and caterplexy.
