How Long Does It Take To Recover From All-In-Six Implants And Is It Painful?

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013
Q.

I went for a consultation for all-on-six implants for the removal and replacement for my upper jaw and after the 3-d scan was told I was a good candidate for the treatment. Can you tell me how severe the pain is for the few days after the treatment as I have been told different answers by the two surgeries I have had consultations from? The first dentist said I would be able to go back to work after a day off following the surgery and the second dentist said I would need to have a week off work. I am a bit confused by this, Thanks.

I’m Getting Married Next Year And Want To Know Cheap Options For Treatment?

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Patel. My query is that I have a tooth right next to my two top front ones that appears to be moving very far back to the point now when I have a photo people ask if I have a tooth missing, I am extremely upset and distressed by this especially as I am due to get married next year and want to be able to smile in my photograph without worrying at the back of my mind, I had braces when I was younger and foolishly took them out with pliers as I was so self-conscious of them. But now I need to find a way that is cheap, to make me smile again and I am not sure how to do it. Can you provide me with any information? Many thanks.

I’m 19 Years Old And I Want To Know If I Can Get Braces Through The NHS?

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013
Q.

Hello. I need to tell you that I’m 19 years old and on job seekers and I was wondering whether I can still get braces for free as they are starting to hurt on the gums for no apparent reason? Do you know why this is? When I would go to the dentist they said they can’t find the problem, and also on my left side, I have one of my teeth going inwards, but in the past my dentist was only offering the braces treatment, which were the ones you can remove which were no help, so is there any chance of getting free braces as I am now getting older and need to know the cut off? I hope you can help me with my questions and I thank you in advance for any consideration.

I Have A Sore Mouth After Root Canal Treatment, And I’m Worried I Might Lose A Tooth, Can You Help Me?

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013
Q.

Hello,
I hope you can help me please, I had RCT on a upper back tooth which was not successful I changed my dentist and had the RCT done again, it was very painful afterwards and took several months to settle down. My problem now is that there is a small old filling on the inside of this tooth which is making my tongue sore I spoke to the dentist about having the old filling redone and was told because it was attached to a larger filling it was best to leave it and he filed down the old filling to try to smooth it but this is not successful. I did look at the tooth with a small mirror to see for myself and the filling looks old but I also noticed a dark horizontal line just under the gum line on this tooth and when I touched it the tooth was tender, I am worried that some damage has been done to the tooth whilst having the two RCT.
I can’t afford to loose this tooth so please could you advise me what I should do, I would appreciate your knowledge regarding my problem.

Thank you so much

I Need To Know If I Can Have A Tooth Replacement Via A Crown Instead Of Having To Wear Dentures?

Monday, September 2nd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Patel, I need to tell you that I currently have a missing front tooth, and I am wondering if you know whether I can have a false one fitted via a crown, instead of having to wear dentures? I have stopped smoking as to help my dental hygiene and have lost most of my lower back teeth as well. My other related problems are that I get chronic indigestion and sore gums, and I have stained teeth due to a medicine I was given as a baby and had crowns fitted fifteen years ago to make me have white teeth. I keep on top of my oral health and brush my teeth twice a day and I also use cordisol mouthwash. I really hope you can guide me in these matters, kind regards and thank you.

I Am Happy With My Veneers And Now One Has Fallen Off. What Are My Options?

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013
Q.

Hello. I need to tell you that the second veneer on one of my front teeth has fallen off! My dentist has said that there is not enough tooth left to resurface and has recommended that I have my front teeth crowned. He has now given me a quote of about £500 per tooth. I am not able to afford this at the moment and wondered if there was another solution. As at the moment one of my front teeth is not looking very attractive. I have had veneers on my front teeth for quite a long time and the other tooth still has the original veneer. I have never really been happy with the shape of the veneers as they have made my teeth look too wide and uneven. Look forward to hearing your advice. Thank you

very much Dr Patel.

I Used To Be A Smoker And Need My Teeth Straightened, But I’d Struggle To Pay For Veneers. What Are My Options?

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013
Q.

Hi, I am only 22 years old and getting very depressed because of the look of my teeth. I am ashamed to say I was a smoker and didn’t eat very healthy in the past. I have now stopped smoking and eating better but my teeth are still terrible because of my bad habits in the past. They’re not as white as they were and my bottom teeth are not straight and all different shapes. I hate too look at them and I hate to smile at anyone. It’s making my life hell and has taken all of my confidence away because of my wrong choices in the past. It’s even affected my personal life because myself esteem was so low I could never smile near my ex-boyfriend. I can never afford that type of money for veneers, can you please advise me on what I can do, Thank you for reading, do please get back to me.

Will Dentures Work For My Missing Teeth?

Monday, August 19th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I have just lost my bridge from my lower left gum, in the process i have had to have an extraction of my LL7 basically my back molar. Which has left me with 3 teeth missing and my LL4 has just had a crown and apicoectomy. Which left me with a floating bone, I am ruling out implants because of the price and the fact I may have weak bones in my mouth, I have been looking for a perfect fit denture with no regards to price and have come across valplast dentures. Would it be possible to have this denture considering i have no back molar to sit it on. Also do you think these dentures are the best available.i would like to sort this out but want to choose the right dentures so that i am not in the same position again. thanks

I’m Seventeen And Wore Braces But My Teeth Have Gone back To Their Original Place.

Monday, August 19th, 2013
Q.

I’m a 17 year old girl who has previously wore braces but unfortunately my two front teeth went back to their horrible place and ever since I’ve started having difficulties even smiling so whenever I go into public places I cover my mouth with shame and embarrassment. I worry that I’ll always have this problem and I’d just like to know if there is any hope for me. I just want to fix my two front teeth and wonder how much it will be as I can’t afford to get braces again. Can cosmetic dentistry help me put my front teeth back even a small amount so I can close my mouth without struggling?

I Have Been Bullied For Years Because I Have A Large Chin, Please Help!

Friday, August 9th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I’m 32 years old and have suffered with real confidence issues since my school days due to a large chin I’ve been called every name under the sun. School was horrible, I would literally walk through the gates and be called the most awful things and this continued outside of it too. It has since made me feel very self conscious and as a result I’m a very introvert person and don’t say two words to anyone for fear that they’ll start mocking me too. I just wish I had heard about jaw surgery before I also have very crowded teeth and an overbite which also doesn’t help, looking back this is something I definitely feel should have been an option for me when I was younger

What would be my options now and who should I speak to about it?
Thanks
