I Don’t Like To Wear My Hard Denture. Can You Tell Me If The Rubber Ones Are More Comfortable?

Friday, May 9th, 2014
Q.

Dear Andrew. I have had movement of one of my front teeth and the gum has receded back. It’s been like this for some time. The tooth itself is not loose but it has dropped down and is a bit twisted. For the past month I have had a bit of sensitive pain with it. I know it needs to come out but I’ve put it off as I already have one tooth missing. I have a hard denture which I dont like to wear as it covers the roof of my mouth and I don’t like the feel of it. I only wear it now and again as you can’t really tell. My problem is if I were to have the front tooth out I will need to wear a denture all the time and can’t stand the thought of a hard denture. My dentist has shown me a rubber type denture and I wondered if this might be the better option? Thanks.

Do You Know How I Can Get In Touch With Any Dentists Who Offer A Payment Plan?

Friday, May 9th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I’ve been trying to get help for a long time but I don’t know how to go about it. I had a partial top denture fitted some years ago now all the remaining top teeth have decayed and I seriously need help. Someone told me that there are dentists who would do the work required on a payment plan? I don’t know of any? The damage done to my teeth was mainly caused by an ill fitted denture and the dentist that did the work is no longer there. Just getting up each day is so depressing. Every time I look at my teeth I just want to lock myself away. I would appreciate any advice or help you could give me. Thank you.

I Suffer From Gagging Through My Dentures But I Can’t Afford Implants. What Should I Do?

Thursday, May 1st, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. About 3 years ago I had all my upper teeth out by a previous dentist, this should have been avoided, rather than persist with repairing my teeth, they were extracted one by one until they were all gone over a short time. My problem is, I don’t have enough bone for implants, this is slowly getting worse as time goes on. I don’t qualify for free implants and cannot afford to pay myself. I am 55 and the dentist that pulled the teeth said she is not prepared to do implant on the NHS as it’s not cost effective. I had 3 dentures made but none of them are any good. I suffer from gagging so my dentures were made without much
of the roof of the mouth intact. I’d like advice to what I can do next? Many thanks.

My Dentist Said That Veneers Would Look Too Big For Me. Would Bonding Work To Close My Gaps Instead?

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have a large gap in front and little gaps around, I went to the dentist who did a model for me and he said if I close them with veneers they will look big and ugly. What other option of I have. I don’t mind closing it slightly. Also I have a denture on because of the surgery I had a whole ago so I don’t think a brace will be ideal as I need to take off denture to clean. Will bonding be ideal for me and also what’s the available – quick fix?

I Have Overlapping Teeth At The Front And The Enamel Is Almost Completely Gone. I’m At A Loss, What Should I Do?

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014
Q.

Hi. I’m messaging you as I recently went to the dentist. She did what she could for me and since then (8 months ago) I’ve quit smoking I have done all of what she suggested but my teeth just seem to get worse. I have over lapping teeth at the front which wouldn’t be so bad if the enamel were there but its completely gone. So much so, that I have dark shadows on them I can’t bear to smile. I then thought I’d pay to have them whitened with a friend, hers were amazing mine not too bad but my 2 front teeth look the same, I’m at a loss, what should I do? I’m so sick of smiling though a closed mouth or hiding it with my hand. I’m 31 & I would rather have all my teeth taken out & have dentures rather than have this for the rest of my life.
Please help. Thanks.

My Dad Has Developed Periodontal Disease Through Having Diabetes. Is There Something He Can Do Temporarily Until He Gets Implants?

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I have a question for you. My dad has diabetes (not because he is overweight or unhealthy) and has developed periodontal disease, he’s currently having treatment with a gum specialist and he has an appointment for a deep cleaning soon, but some of his teeth have fallen out and some are loose. Is there something that can be done temporarily like a bridge in order for him to have teeth until he has healthy enough gums to maybe get implants? He’s getting really paranoid, as his front tooth is loose and he is under a lot of stress through this.

All My Life I’ve Wanted The Perfect Smile. What Are The Best Treatments To Achieve This?

Monday, April 28th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I am 46 and have all my life want a perfect smile. For the upper teeth anyway, my teeth are badly crooked at front, I have had a few removed at the back either side, and one front tooth is starting to rot. It’s been filled at the back to the maximum capacity and the one next to it is starting to go too. I have diabetes also. What’s my best option? Dentures? I am prepared to have all my remaining upper teeth removed to get that smile I have always longed for. Thank you for your time. I look forward to your reply.

I Have Been Told That I’m Going To Lose All Of My Teeth. How Much Does It Cost To Have Them Replaced?

Thursday, April 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I have had dental issues for many years and at my last appointment I was told that my teeth will fall out sooner rather than later (apparently my gums are not so healthy). That was about 9 months ago and I am yet to lose any teeth. I want to replace all my teeth with new ones so that I am able to progress in the entertainment industry. What I would like to know is, how much is a procedure such as this likely to cost? Thank you. I hope to hear from you soon.

Most Of My Teeth Fell Out Through Smoking. Is There Any Way I Could Get The 4 In A Day Treatment Through The NHS?

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I used to smoke. I stopped around 7 years ago but most of my teeth have fallen out due to it. I went by my local NHS dentist and he extracted a few teeth, primarily the ones which had decayed. He suggested that I should try dentures, but I am really struggling with dentures and I cannot eat or talk with it. I have had them changed 4 times now. And now my back teeth are now falling out as well. Was looking into the 4 in a day procedure. Can my dentist recommend that on NHS?
If so, how do I go about it? I look forward to your reply. Thanks.

Is It Possible For Me To Get Fixed Dentures? How Much Is This Likely To Cost?

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew, I’d like your help. I have had top full dentures for many years now and feel I would benefit from fixed dentures. Is this possible and how much is it likely to cost? I would also like implants on my lower jaw as I cannot wear my bottom partial plate without difficulty. Is there anything out there you could recommend to help me with this? I really hope to hear from you soon. Thank you in advance for any information you can provide me with.
