Can You Give Me A Guideline For Implant Costs?

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013
Q.

Hi,

I have had a front tooth missing for about 12 years now, from an fall at university.

They tried to save it for me but it needed to be taken out, and ever since ive had a bridge with wings.

Over time the frequency of me needing to get my bridge re-cementing has increased.

I think its finally time to get an implant, but im totally blind to the costs.

I fear it could run into the £k’s having spoke to a dentist this morning as I understand you cant go through the NHS. I also need to pay £100 for the consultation. Is this normal ?

I would never have questioned it, but since I had laser eye surgery and understanding the price ranges/reductions/ haggling I was alarmed and I needed to………. I thought I best check with an expert for a guideline bracket.

Thanks

Can I Get A Fixed Bridge Instead Of My False Teeth?

Monday, June 10th, 2013
Q.

I lost two front bottom teeth two months ago I was horrified. I was told that I can’t have a bridge at the moment so I have to put up with false teeth. The rest of my teeth are strong but I think the problem is that the gum where I lost my teeth are low. I would like to know if there is a chance of having a bridge fixed as the false teeth keep coming out and feel very uncomfortable. I feel really down I need advice.
It would help if you could tell me how likely you think it is that I’ll be able to get a fixed bridge? Also if you could point me in the direction of a colleague then that would also be brilliant. Regards.

Friday, May 24th, 2013
Q.

Hi
I recently lost 2 teeth ul5 and ul7 . I’ve been told a need a bridge . Is gold the best option? Also have a lot of silver fillings which are over 15 years old and caused these 2 teeth to crack.

Which Dental Implants Should I Choose To Replace My Missing Molars?

Friday, May 24th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I have recently had an abscess which required antibiotics. Seems to have started from below a molar on my lower jaw where I had root canal done last year. I also have a missing molar on the opposite upper jaw and just want to get both sides sorted once and for good. My enquiry is into 2 implants and I have been advised to only go for specific brands and would like to know what you use and how much this might cost? I live in Brighton, East Sussex. I look forward to hearing from you.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013
Q.

Hi i am 27 years old and have had to have three theeth removed two on one side seperated by a tooth and one on the other , what are my options as i don’t want anything removable as of my age would be embarrassing. it is two upper right and one upper left . i want to now have dental implants maybe to cover these gaps which are making me really depressed. it’s horrible as a young person to have these gaps in your smile and not want to open your mouth in public or to be ashamed of how you look so getting it fixed is literally the only option. please could you let me know what my options are and prices i would expect to pay

My New Dentures Cause Me Pain And Make It Difficult To Eat, Is There Another Option?

Friday, March 15th, 2013
Q.

Hello. I have recently had my top 4 front teeth extracted and dentures fitted immediately. However I am not able to chew my food as my bottom 4 teeth prevent me from a full bite. I having to drink soup or eat very soft food as I can only use my tongue to ‘cut’ my food. The plate in my mouth is making the roof of my mouth sore and unable to bear pressure. Due to poor bone density I have been told my other teeth will not support a bridge and I don’t have a lot of money for implants. I was wondering if there is any other way or a thinner or more flexible denture (that is provided by the NHS) or is this my lot. I have the added problem of having a husband whose blood goes cold at the thought of seeing me with my missing teeth. Any response along with possible costs would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in anticipation.
From a very sad 48 year old lady.

A Tooth That I Had Root Canal Treatment On 15 Years Ago Fell Out, What Do I Do?

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013
Q.

Hi I wonder if you can help . I had root canal treatment on one of my teeth( I think it was the 3rd one in from the front tooth) around 15 years ago. Everything has been fine up until now with it. I had quite a shock as last night the whole tooth fell out in one piece including two metal posts which are attached to what I presume is a crown . It was such a long time ago I can’t actually remember what treatment I received! It is quite a mystery, anyways obviously I am now very upset to see a gap at the side where the tooth was . Will I be able to just have this replaced by my dentist or will I need a dental implant or worse ?? It could become quite an issue for me if I do not get it fixed so I say, thank you your help would be much appreciated .

Can you remove my infected wisdom tooth before I move to New York next week?

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012
Q.

Hi Mr Hughes,
I recently saw my local dentist who told me my wisdom tooth is infected and I need to have it removed. Trouble is, I move to NYC next week and was told that I would have to referred for a hospital consultation. I am currently not in any pain, but am aware it could flair up at any time and of course I don’t want this to happen when in the states. I wondered how much it cost to have it removed privately or if there’s anyway I could have this surgery sooner. Also I am also concerned that I have already had 4 teeth removed when I had braces as a teenager and I am worried that it’s not good to have any more out as it can change to shape of your face in due time.

Many thanks.
