I Would Like to Know If I Can Still Get Braces Even Though I Have Missing Teeth?

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I hope you can help me with a problem I have. I’m curious to know if I can wear braces even if I have an incomplete set of teeth. In my upper part I don’t have a second molar and a first premolar and in lower part I don’t have my second molar? My teeth seem to be separating from each other. I want to know because I’m set to visit my dentist and I want to know if it’s worth asking for braces. I just need to know first so that if it’s impossible I will not go to my dentist. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your reply.

I Have A False Front Tooth And I Would Like Alternative Options As It’s Coming Loose.

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I had one of my front teeth taken out about six years ago due to a gum infection and I now wear a false tooth. I was told at the time that this was my only option as there was insufficient bone to support an implant. I am now wondering if this is still my only option as I am very self conscious. I am 53 and in good health. I regularly attend my dentist and look after my teeth also. My false tooth is one of my front teeth and is also coming a little loose now. Thank you, I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi. My Question Is: Can I Get My Regular Dentist To Fit A Dental Implant?

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. I have a question for you. I have a front tooth that is missing and I really need to get this fixed. There’s another tooth that is also loose and that is about to come out as well. My question is: how much does screw a tooth cost and can a regular dentist do this? How does this work? What I mean is, do I need to have a certain problem other than a missing tooth? Also do you put a person to sleep for this or just use shots to numb the gum area to do the screw in tooth. Any other information you can provide me with would be great. Thank you.

If I Remove My Teeth, Will My Overcrowded Teeth Move And Straighten To Fill The Gaps?

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew, my teeth are overcrowded. I was just wondering if I remove some of my teeth if the other teeth will move to fill the gaps? My wisdom teeth haven’t come through yet but I have been told they will impact. Should I just wait until these come and remove more teeth at once? I have been experiencing TMJ. I’m not sure if this has something to do with it. The oral surgeon thinks stress caused it although he is unsure. Will removing the teeth make this situation worse? I look forward to your advice regarding this matter. Thank you.

My Daughter Lost Some Teeth After Her Horse Hit Her In The Face. Can You Recommend A Good Implantologist?

Friday, January 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I’d like your advice. My daughter aged 32, has had an accident and has been hit in her mouth by her horse. Three front teeth have been knocked out leaving the roots. What can we do and who should she see to correct this for her? We live in the North West and we’re not sure what sort of dental treatment she will need or even who to contact. Should she have implants, veneers or crowns fitted? The cost is not a problem as we want her to have the best treatment. Any recommendation would be gratefully received. Thank you.

I Have Recently Had 16 Teeth Extracted. Is There Such A Thing As Attaching Dentures To Implants?

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014
Q.

Hi I have recently undergone an operation of 16 extractions on my upper set and now I have no teeth at all.
I have a denture but my appearance and mouth has totally changed. I also have an overbite and my lip looks swollen when there worn. I’m still on the same type of food I was eating during after the operation. I am only 20 years young and I would love a long term option. Are there any option that won’t break the bank financially? Is there such a thing as attaching dentures to implants? Thank you.

Is It Difficult For Dentists To Extract Teeth Barely Over The Gum Line?

Thursday, October 10th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Shaffie. I believe I may require treatment fairly soon, at the moment I have two back molars on opposite sides that need extracting and an upper tooth where a crown has come out. In regard to the back molars, one broke in half and the other one is barely above gum level and is almost entirely made up of filling. Will the extraction for the tooth barely over gum level be difficult to perform for some dentists?
I have not seen a dentist for two years, as my previous one retired. I will probably need some other work, can you offer me any advice in regards to this? Thank you and kind regards.

My Missing Teeth Are Knocking My Confidence, Which Treatment Option Would Be Right For Me?

Friday, August 2nd, 2013
Q.

I have upper left 5 missing and upper right 5,6,7,8 missing (hope I have got that right). I want to have these gaps filled but what is my best options other than implants? which I can not afford, quoted £4,500 because I need bone graft and sinus pocket lift etc. Chrome metal partial denture but I don’t like the clips, they will show when I smile and last I have been quoted £2,000 for bridges which I can not afford either. I would appreciate any help whatsoever that you can give me with this. It is an issue which has been playing on my mind for quite sometime now and it is knocking my confidence. Any response would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

I Suffer From Epilepsy And The Medication Has Ruined My Teeth, What Can I Do?

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi, I suffer from a number of medical conditions, including epilepsy. Due to lots of medication over a lot of years and side effects. My hair, skin and teeth have suffered. My teeth are crooked, but due to illnesses and medications they have also become very weak. I have lost one tooth already. I have no confidence left due to these illnesses and haven’t visited the dentist in a while because of this. I hate my teeth and speak to people and laugh with my hand over my mouth as I am so self conscious about my teeth. I am a single parent who due to these awful illnesses is unable to work. Is there anyway I can get my teeth sorted on the NHS? I’m desperate for help and I just don’t want them getting worse than they already are. Thank you for your kind advice in advance.

My Teeth Are Completely Rotten, What Are My Options?

Thursday, July 4th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I wondered if you could please advise me on something? If one’s teeth are completely rotten and dentures cannot be attached to any of them, what are the other possible solutions? If all the teeth are to be removed, will the person need to have at least one or two teeth implanted in order to wear dentures? The patient’s teeth are completely rotten and he is unable to eat. I am writing on behalf of him, we’re not sure where to turn. Considering the cost of dental implants, is there a cost-effective solution to this problem? We would just like a general idea so we can gather the correct funds, get in touch with the right dentists for example. We’re sort of new to the whole implant dentistry/cosmetic dentistry so we don’t really have a clue on how to go about getting the right information. This is why we came here and asked for your help. Thank you very much for your advice in advance.
