Hello, I Need To Know The Cost Of A Full Dental Implant Procedure For My Wife?

Monday, September 9th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Safeer. The Problem I need to discuss is that I was looking for a price for my wife as she has been told she needs full mouth dental implants as all of her teeth are either broken or missing and this is really affecting the way she feels and this has led her to depression and she is still suffering with it and all this isn’t helping with the situation. I would just like my wife to be confident within herself. What would you say was the average price for this type of procedure within your profession? Thank you for your help and taking the time to read this and get back to me. It would do me a great favour.

Help! I Chipped My Tooth After A Root Canal, And Now I Get A Horrid Taste In My Mouth. What Are My Options?

Friday, August 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi, I need help. I smashed three of my top front teeth out 15 years ago when I was 15, now I am older I am self conscious about the way they look in the mirror. I had a root canal done which was very painful and then I chipped two of them not long after the root canal treatment. Now I think they are a horrid colour and look mouldy. I brush, rinse, and floss every day and try to take as best of care of my teeth the best I can. Do you have any suggestions on what my options are these days? I was thinking that should I get them pulled out and replaced them with false ones. I also get a horrid taste in my mouth. Please help I am at my wits end! Thanks for your time, I await your answer.

The Gaps In My Teeth Are Getting Me Down, What Can I Do?

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013
Q.

Hi, I’ve recently suffered with gum disease and I’ve been to my dentist to get it sorted out, and she said my bone tissue was OK. After cleaning and scraping I had some antibiotic chips placed under my gums, they are much better now and the swelling has all gone down, but it has left small gaps in all the front of my teeth. I’m not liking how it looks, is there anything I can do to rectify this? as it’s just depressing me the way it looks. I’ve always been a pretty confident person, and now I don’t want to go out and talk to people as I’m very paranoid about how it looks, I did smoke for 25 years but I have now stopped for a year, I have heard about bonding and porcelain teeth but you will know better than me, could you please advise me? Thank you very much.

I Am Experiencing Movement Of My Teeth After Orthodontic Treatment, Should I Contact My Orthodontist?

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013
Q.

Dr Butt, despite retaining my teeth after recent orthodontic treatment, I have noticed that my bite has shifted and is wearing down the molar enamel surfaces of the teeth as they are looking more yellow and worn. I feel my front teeth have moved inwards slightly, which has caused the bite to shift. This has given me reason to worry that the new uncomfortable bite that I am experiencing is wearing my lovely teeth down by the day, as I can feel them knocking each other. Should I consult my orthodontist, who made my retainers, about it or is this something that will rectify itself? When I wear my retainer the bite stabilises but when I take it out it shifts and is scraping the teeth. I hope that you can help me with this problem. Thanks.

Is Bonding Useful For Closing A 4mm Gap Between My Two Front Teeth?

Thursday, August 8th, 2013
Q.

Hi,

I have a 4mm gap between my two front teeth and I am looking at getting it fixed. All of the rest of my teeth are fine and I have no other gaps at all. My teeth are also perfectly straight. Would bonding be possible here or is the gap too large? I don’t want veneers because I don’t want to lose any of my natural tooth structure. I really want the gap closing and bonding seems to be the best way from what I have read but as I said I’m unsure of the procedure and if it would be suitable for me. I would just love a general idea or if there’s anything else you can suggest? That would also be great. I would just like an idea so I can gather the funds to have this fixed once and for all. Many thanks.

Can A Missing Tooth Cause A Change To The Bite?

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013
Q.

Dr Butt, can a missing tooth cause a change to the bite? My right canine has been missing for 10 years but for the last 2 months my bite doesn’t feel right, I cannot chew properly and I fear the enamel on my molars is wearing. I wear a nightly Essix retainer to maintain the space and the denture in the day so I do not understand why this is happening. Should I consult my orthodontist about it as it is really worrying me? I’m not sure what I should do, I don’t know if this is truly happening and I just don’t understand why this is happening now when everything has been fine over the last 10 years. Can hormonal changes cause this? I’ve always taken care of my teeth, I just don’t understand. Thank you for any advice, many thanks again.

I’m Not Happy With My Crowns As They Are Sitting On My Lips, Please Help!

Friday, July 26th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I have recently had most of my teeth crowned in December and didn’t like them as the front teeth appeared to go in like they used to. So to try and solve this I paid my dentist again and they look great, perhaps a bit dull though but not as bad as the were…anyway the problem I am having is they feel like they are all sitting on my lip and it looks like I have a bit of a sad face when I open my mouth. The problem seems to be worsening and I’m not sure what I should do. Do you think this is because they never straightened my teeth at the start as the were quite badly damaged? Thanks for your time.

I’m 17, I Cannot Get Free Braces, What Should I Do About My Gappy Teeth?

Thursday, July 25th, 2013
Q.

I’m am a 17 year old boy who lives in England. I’m a full time student. i was offered braces a fee years ago but i had never wanted braces but looking back I wish I did, my top teeth are very gappy but my bottoms ones are fine (maybe a bit crowded) but I am happy with them. My top teeth are not bent, twisted and they are all in good condition but just gapped all the way along. What i would like to know is what alternatives do I have without the look of braces. I’ve heard about Invisalign but I think it will be to expensive for me, my price range will be in the region of under £3,000. Also is there any chance of getting any treatment with the NHS? If braces were still free on the NHS I may consider them.

Should I Listen To My Dentist And Opt For The Adhesive Dental Bridge?

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013
Q.

Hi doctor Butt, I had to have front crown removed after 13years because of fracture. My dentist has offered a sticky bridge on nhs or 600pounds private. It is the tooth right next to front tooth, i’ve always took care of my teeth and dentist said I have good oral hygiene, could you tell me if nhs bridge is ok. Should I save for private, is there a big difference in appearance. Will I be able to see the metal on nhs at the back of tooth, and will my Eye tooth which will be filed down, be very badly damaged. I have had tooth out now for over2months and have a temporary plate with tooth on, and I am not coping very well with it, in fact I’ve lost 10lbs because I am feeling sick all the time with this thing in my mouth and I have stopped eating out in restaurants as I don’t enjoy my food with it in.I’m 59 years oldThank you
