My mother has gum disease, but would like to have dental implants, is the possible?

Monday, January 23rd, 2012
Q.

Hi, I am writing on behalf of my mum she has gum disease and has been told that her gums are not fit for implants, the gums are also receeding some of her teeth have started to fall out others are very loose and she is struggling eating much because she fears her teeth will fall out. So we just wanted to know what her options are, she has a vey sensitive pallete and she doesn’t know whether she would be able to wear dentures due to her wretching. Hopefully you will be able to shed a bit of light as it is really distressing my mum. Thank you.

My bridge keeps falling off, but I don’t want a dental implant, what can I do?

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012
Q.

Hi Mark,

3 years ago, my side tooth was extracted and the dentist suggested that I have a bridge which is glued/cemented to either side of the teeth. For the past 2 years, I have gone back to my dentist (sometimes on a monthly basis) as the bridge keeps falling out. Each visit is costing me £90.00. I don’t want an implant. Would you suggest a false tooth, or is this not possible. Many thanks for you time.

What other options do I have to plate dentures with implants?

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011
Q.

Mine is rather unique situation. I am on a long trip from Australia.I have purchased a small house on the north coast of France and we be renovating for over a year.
Before I left Australia four months ago I had to have all my top teeth removed. The gum has healed well and recently I went to the Brighton Implant Clinic who did a panoramic xray and told me I was fine for an all on four procedure.
But I have decided I am not happy with the All on Four or any procedure which includes flap type surgery.
I cant wear a top denture. I gag even with the concave piece ground out of the back. I have an overbight and really need a denture without a top plate.
The only option I have left and which I pray will suite me is a removable denture with no top plate and ball bearings onto the o rings.
I have also lost a number of teeth on the bottom but the problem is I only have a limited budget because of the burden of renovating.
Are you able to help me? Brighton Implant Clinic said I would have to come back numerous times which isi financially impossilbe for me. I have tried contacting Dental clinics in France but I dont feel I can communicate with my limited language skills. Can you help me?
Regards

Are there any cost effective replacement options as good as dental implants?

Monday, November 28th, 2011
Q.

Our dentist has suggested dental implants for my wife who is 70 years of age. Dentist says that her gums are in good shape and will hold the implants. She needs three implants in upper and lower gums. My concern is age and post-menoposal stage. Howevere she has no bad post-monoposal signs and symptoms and not diabetic. What do you advise? We know our dentist for long time and trust him but I am looking for second opinion as the procedure is costly.

Can you give me any advice about receiving implant treatment abroad?

Friday, October 21st, 2011
Q.

coul you please advise me as to the best place to recieve full dental implants abroad ,i have several teeth that are broken at the gumline but have not had them extracted yet as i thought this would start bone loss of the jaw and would make treatment more difficult.i am in need of a full set of implants on both upper and lower jaw and unfortunately,am a extremely nervous patient so would require a general anesthetic while undergoing treatment , only have a budget of approx 10000 pounds so going overseas is my only option, ive been told instanbul and hungary are very good but would value youre opinion and advise on how to start this procedure .

My dentist tells me that I can’t have a bridge on the NHS. Is this true?

Friday, October 21st, 2011
Q.

My dentist has just told me l need a new bridge as my old one is leaking, and any bacteria getting in could rot my teeth underneath. I asked if l could have it done on the nhs at the band three price of £204 he said no? I asked why….he said the nhs remedy…we are talking the realms of dentures.!Is this correct? All information l have read says that a bridge that is needed is available at £204 on the nhs. I do not want to challange him or complain as i’m sure all dentists are the same and l dont want to be left without a dentist. If this is correct l think all the literature out there saying you can get a bridge on the nhs at the band three price is a total myth, and is giving people false hope. I have been told in the past that all dentists undertaking all dental work under the nhs are adequately recompensed for anything they do. Can you clarify the situation for me please. It seems as usual the people with money will have nice teeth the rest of us dentures!! Thank you.

I don’t have some of my adult teeth, are dental implants the best replacement option for my situation?

Friday, October 7th, 2011
Q.

i have a large gap between my two front top teeth, not from a missing tooth just naturally. i would like the gap made smaller. when i was younger an xray revealed i didnt have any big teeth to come through so alot of my back teeth up and down are all milk and at the moment one is so lose i cant even brush it, i know it needs to come out as i know its making my breath smell but im so scared of having it out and dont know what my options would be to replace it, im 24 and really dont want a flase tooth i would like an implant. i also have a tooth missing which was a milk tooth and a g tooth never grew through which i would like replaced. what could i have done and how much would i expect to pay for this

I have severe periodontitis and wanted to know the best replacement treatment for my teeth.

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011
Q.

Please could you advise me i am so worried and although i know the situation is terrible some sound advice would at least help me to rest. I have aggressive periodontitis. With the result that i am only 34 and my bone loss is so sever on my front bottom teeth that my dentist said that i won’t them for much longer. I have moved around a lot in my life and seen different dentists and therefore not been under the care of one. This dentist said she will refer me to the hospital after my next hygienist visit but this will be in three months time. Meanwhile she said that there is nothing i can do but wait for my teeth to fall out (aside of course from impeccable hygiene).

My question is this. Would it be better to have my teeth pulled out to preserve any bone that remains. And is it possible if the bone loss is so severe that i may not be able to have dentures? This is my worst nightmare.
I have researched online and would like to know if periodontal laser therapy might be an option.

I do appreciate how busy you are but would so greatly appreciate any advice you are able to give me.
P.S I currently get help with NHS costs as although iam a professional I am a single parent. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond.

What can you tell me about ‘Snap on Smiles?’

Friday, September 30th, 2011
Q.

Hi
I am looking at the snap on smile. I am based in Birmingham, and am 24 years old.

There isnt anything wrong with my teeth but they are slightly uneaven looking. I am also looking to add vertical dimension to my teeth as they are to small for my face. Although I want to add length I do want them to look very large o bulky, as the snap on is over the tooth does this do this? What is the possibility of influencing the shape of the snap on?
I am a model, but vaneers at the moment are out of my price range. Thank you,
