Monday, October 20th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I am 34 and I’ve been left with no teeth. I am currently wearing a denture but it’s feels like my face is already making me a lot older than what I am I am so down but I have been to a few dentist and they said I would be a perfect fit for dental implants as I have good bone structure but I’m currently on benefits due to back pain is the procedure expensive for upper and lower implants. Thank you.

My Partner Is Finding Her Top Denture Uncomfortable To Wear. Is There Such A Thing As A ‘Top Self Denture’?

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. My partner has top dentures (all except one canine tooth). She has a thing about them and it is making her very self conscious and they are making her very sensitive and unhappy. I think she would be better with a top set that are top of the market so to speak, is there such a thing? She is too young to be going through this, she does have her bottom teeth, but she had a gum problem which is why she has top dentures. Please can you help us? Regards.

Hi Mark. I’ve Been Told I Have Gum Disease And My Teeth Are Falling Out One By One. Is There Any Way You Can Help Me?

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have visited a few dentists and they have all told me that I have gum disease. My teeth are falling out one by one. It is scary because I do not know how it came about and how to prevent it. They told me I have to get dentures because of bone loss as I cannot get implants. I am only 33 years old and having dentures at this age is terrifying! I don’t even know how it will affect my marriage as well. Is there any way you can help me? What is your best solution? Thank you for your time.

Monday, October 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I’ve had a full set of dentures for over a year and I’ve stupidly lost them. I would like to know how soon could I get a knew set and how long it would take for them to get made? How much do they cost? I’m in a need of a quick solution and I’ve read that you can get same day dentures? I’ve no problems with my gums or mouth, would it be possible to get same day dentures? I’m hoping to get the dentures fitted quickly. Thank you so much for your help.

I Have Been Told That I Could Have A Lower Bone Graft For Dental Implants. Does This Sound Correct?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi. I have a full lower denture that is totally loose and unretentive to the point where I have to remove it in order to eat, although aesthetically it looks good.
I have been advised that I need a bone graft as the lower gum has been ground down to such an extent. I have no suction retention whatsoever due to a very dry mouth induced by necessary medication I need to take. I have been advised that after a lower bone graft I could be fitted with two conventional implants to give retention. My previous mini implants were unsatisfactory and needed to be removed. Does the advice I have been given sound right to you and does your clinic carry out such work?

Many thanks.

I Have A Missing Front Tooth And The Partial Denture Makes Me Ill. How Can I Afford A Dental Implant?

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Marcus. I have lost a front tooth and I’m only in my twenties. I can’t go out any more or see anyone apart from family. My dentist gave me a denture on a plate but there’s no way I can have it in. I’m sick as soon as it’s in my mouth. I’m a single mum with 2 children and I’m getting worse everyday. I was very bubbly and out going and working with loads of friends but now I’m a different person all because of one tooth. My dentist doesn’t provide implants or anything like that and I have got a family wedding coming up but I’m not going because of this. I can’t pay for an implant weekly because I can’t get credit anywhere. What should I do?

I May Need A Denture To Stop My Teeth From Moving. I’d Like Know If Dentists Offer Payment Plans To Spread The Costs?

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I would like to have my front teeth straightened they seem to have moved with age. I had them straightened in my thirties the normal way with the metal ones and had superb results, yet 20 years on they have moved and I’m very self-conscious of them. My problem is that I’ve had some teeth removed at the back due to no fault of my own so I think this has caused them to move. So I may need a denture or something to stop them moving in the future. I’m sure this will be very expensive so I’d like to know if there are payment plans available at all?

20 Dental Implants In Hungary Would Cost Around £10,000. What Would It Cost Here As A Ball Park Figure?

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. My NHS dentist recently said I should consider going private for a full mouth restoration. I have severe sensitivity and loss of enamel. I have lost many teeth and struggle now to hold my top dentures in. How much roughly, ball park prices would I be looking at to have it done here rather than abroad?
With I think up to 20 implants in Hungary for example would be around £10,000.
What would it be here?
Thank you.

Hello Dr Hughes, Is It Possible To Have A Wire Fitting To Keep My Denture In Place As An Alternative To A Dental Plate?

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, I’d like your helpful advice. I have three teeth missing left side upper and two right side upper. I wear a denture which covers both sides. Looks perfect which is very important to me.

Is it possible however to have a wire fitting on both sides of the missing teeth, attaching the false teeth next to the good teeth thereby eliminating the need for a dental plate?

I would much prefer this as I am sure it would make eating so much easier to accomplish.

Thank you.
