I Currently Have A Set Of Plastic Dentures Which I’d Like Replaced. I’m Unaware Of What Is Available. Could You Tell Me How Much It Would Cost?

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore,

I have a set of 3 false teeth at the front of my mouth (top set). And also I have one to the left side and one at the very back on the right side. I currently have the standard dentures with all the plastic which I really hate and I’d like to have this replaced with something else but unsure of what is available. What would you recommend and also what sort of cost would I be looking at if I had them replaced with something else? Thank you for your time and helpful advice in advance.

I’ve Had Epilepsy The Last 12 Years And My Teeth Have Fallen Out. Would I Get Implants On The NHS Due To My Condition?

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014
Q.

Hi. I have been on medication for epilepsy for the past 12 years. Over the years my medication as changed to cope with my epilepsy but this has caused my teeth to go bad and fall out. I am a 34 year old man with 3 children and it’s getting to the point where my kids don’t want to be seen outside with me. I have been offered dentures but I am scared that if I have them put in and the dentures are loose that I could choke. When the doctor told me I had epilepsy, all my dreams and all the hard work disappeared. Do you know whether the NHS would provide me with implants due to my condition?

Dental Implants Are Financially Out Of My Reach. Is There Any Way I Can Get My Smile Back?

Friday, June 20th, 2014
Q.

I Am 45 years of age and I lost a lot of my teeth through neglect. So I decided to have a mass extraction of about 18 teeth in one go under general anaesthetic through the NHS. I was then given a set of dentures from the NHS. The only time I wear them is when I go to the supermarket twice a week. I have spoken to my dentist about implants but they are financially out of my reach. I have read about your teaching position with the Royal College of Surgeons and I was just wondering if you are looking for potential patients to demonstrate your technique? Thank you.

My Gums Are Shrinking Due To An Inherited Condition. Is There Any Treatment That Can Enhance The Look Of My Teeth?

Friday, June 13th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. Is there any treatment you know of that can enhance the look of your teeth if you have gum disease? My gums are shrinking due to an inherited condition. My teeth look okay but as time goes by it’s starting to look like there are holes between my teeth at the top near to the gum. I am 53 and have a huge fear of false dentures.
I have never smoked but I drink socially.
I clean my teeth twice a day
I visit a NHS dentist regularly for scaling and polishing. I would just like to my teeth to look healthy. Thanks.

I Would Like To Get Implants With Two Silver Teeth. How Much Would This Cost?

Friday, May 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have a top and bottom plate. Can I get implants with two silver teeth and how much would it cost? I’m 28 and have had them for about five years, how long does it take for your bone to start to deteriorate? How long would the surgery take? How much would the payment plan be and how would it work? Can you please help me? I have a very insecurity about it because I’m so young. My dentures are uncomfortable and I really want to do it before my bone deteriorates, it has already been five years. Can you please help me some way somehow?

My Teeth Turned Bad And I’m Paranoid About The Way My Fillings Look. Will The NHS Pay Towards Treatment?

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I’m 19 and I really want perfect teeth but I have had problems in the past where my teeth have gone bad and I had to have fillings and now I’m paranoid about the way they look and it really upsets me. I would like to know the cost for permanent dentures all around my whole mouth and I don’t want to be able to move them I just really want a perfect set off teeth. Does the NHS pay for this or help towards payment? Thank you. I’d really like some advice.

Would A Private Dentist Provide Me With A Well-Matched Set Of Partial Dentures? I’m Not Sure About My NHS Dentures.

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. My dentist tells me that NHS partial (2 front teeth) denture faux gums only come in one colour.
My old NHS dentures matched my gum colour.
He keeps telling me that my new dentures should look like my own teeth “should” look.
I have already paid for these teeth though I haven’t yet accepted them.
Should I ‘lose’ my fee and invest in private? Would a private dental technician be able to provide a well-matched set of partial dentures? I no longer care whether they fit well or not. I want the dentures to be unnoticeable to other people. My friends are amazed that all my teeth are not my own.

I Lost My Teeth When I Was Younger And It’s Hard To Wear Dentures. What Should I Do?

Monday, May 19th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I lost my teeth when I was 14 years old which has made me self-conscious all my life. I am 50 years old now and my bottom gum is very wobbly and find it hard to get dentures to fit. The last time I got new dentures they had no bottom groove in them and they lay flat on my gum so I don’t like to wear them. I went back and told them but not to my satisfaction. They lie in my drawer now but obviously because of my wobbly gum, the impression didn’t work. Is there anything that can be done to help me with this? Thank you for your time.

Can You Suggest Appropriate Methods To Replace Missing Teeth Which Might Be More Secure Than Those I Currently Use?

Monday, May 12th, 2014
Q.

I am 41 years old, non;smoker, general good health. My teeth are fine but owing to a 15 year gap in visits to the dentist I (according to an X-ray image), I now have advanced gum disease which will not respond to treatment, at least at a non specialist level. Consequently the rear molar on either side of the lower jaw has been removed and according to my dentist this now leaves my bottom teeth in a stable state. However 2 front teeth on the upper jaw have also been removed
and the 3 behind the right canine
also have infection beneath them and thus are scheduled for removal in near future. I already have a small denture for the missing front teeth but this has to be removed in order to eat any but the softest foods. If all these teeth are removed is any infection
likely to be contained? Can you suggest appropriate methods to replace missing teeth which might
be more secure than those I currently use?

I Have To Clench My Teeth To Keep My Dentures In. I Would Be Grateful If You Could Help Me With This Matter?

Monday, May 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I would like to ask you what the cost of a full set of dental implants would be? I have an Ill fitting upper denture (this is the 3rd one) and I hate having it in my mouth. I am constantly having to clench my teeth to keep it in which gives me headaches. I have my bottom teeth, except a bridge of three in the front which really don’t match, needless to say I am very conscious of
this and don’t smile like I used to. I really don’t know what to do, can you help with this matter? I would be grateful if you can give me some advice.
Thank you.
