Some of my teeth have started falling out, should I get them all removed and have dentures?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011
Q.

I am a 48 yr old woman who has MS and due to lots of steroids over the past 19 yearsI have lost some of my bone density in my gums resulting in the ‘falling out’ of teeth. I have 4 crowns at the top front of my mouth but 1 of these rods in my gum has now broken leaving me with a protruding crown. My confidence to talk has gone & I don’t smile open mouthed anymore or if I do I cover my mouth with my hands…PLEASE HELP, as my dentist says that the only solution is to remove it and put it on a plate which I have for the loss of back teeth which I have lost but the plate is not worn as I cannot eat with it in place, and it makes me lisp. I have also asked whether it is an option to have them all removed and dentures but he has said that the teeth I have left (7 top 11 bottom) are too healthy to remove.

Worried about dental implant treatment

Thursday, August 25th, 2011
Q.

I lost a lower front tooth a bit back after a root canal treatment went bad. I had a dental implant, I was told, to preserve the integrity of the adjacent teeth. A larger than usual implant was used, I was told, as perhaps I had kept the tooth in question for too long. The implant finally healed. The crown on it is suboptimal, really looks little like my natural teeth. I am now having the gum receed around the implant and on each of the adjacent teeth. A periodontist told me it’s just a difficult situation but there’s nothing to be done. The appearance is sort of third worldly. Feel as if I have been really mislead about the entire implant situation. Any advice? Thank you.

Will zirconia dental implants look the most natural?

Thursday, August 25th, 2011
Q.

I am having implants as I have lost teeth in both my upper and lower level and now my crowns & bridges on my upper level are all failing. I would like to have a natural look, if possible, not poker straight or Hollywood white but just natural. I was told that Zirconia would be better for that look than Porcelain – is that true. Is it possible to get a natural look with implants atall or will they always look somewhat false? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I am 17 and have milk teeth that are soon to fall out, what are my options for replacement?

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011
Q.

Hello,
I am 17 years old and am looking into getting porcelain veneers.

I currently have 2 milk teeth that are going to come out very soon and I was wondering if it could be possible to remove the milk teeth and have veneers put on? And if this is possible how long would I have to wait from my milk teeth being taken out to the point where i get my veneers on? As I dont really want to be left with gaps in my teeth, and if this is unavoidable I dont really want to wait that long with gaps.

Thank You,

I have lost a tooth but do not have the finances for an implant, will a denture work just as well?

Monday, August 22nd, 2011
Q.

Hi,
A couple of days ago I had a molar removed from my bottom jaw (2nd from the back on the left) due to it being rather damaged. Having already briefly discussed options with my dentist, I am aware that a dental implant would be my best option (as the teeth on either side are perfectly healthy). However, I face the problem that I am a student so for the minute £2000+ is a little out of my price range. Having been made aware that the neighbouring teeth can move around and the tooth above may move down, I was wondering if a single denture may be sufficient as a temporary option to stop any movement occurring until financially an implant is a viable option. Also, once the molar was extracted, my dentist commented on how long and curved the roots of the tooth were. I was wondering if this may have an impact on the possibility of having an implant fitted or may pose any complications?

I hate my dentures, what is the cost of dental implants?

Thursday, August 18th, 2011
Q.

I have lost all of my bottom teeth and most of my uppers due to dental disease. I have had a new bottom denture made and fitted. The appearance is not as I expected it to be, nothing like my original teeth and my mouth doesn’t close in the same way it used to

The only way they will stay in is with dental glue but that is useless when eating as the whole denture comes out out, they are also ugly and not natural to the way my mouth closes.

The upper dentures need to be done soon but I am so dissappointed with the result of the bottom set, what’s the point? I can’t eat out any more, I can’t even enjoy a meal at home. Fruit, like apples, pears, even plums are completely out of the question now.

I am a pensioner, just how much will it cost to have a denture implant done. I hear so many stories, so many different prices quoted.

I can’t believe the NHS don’t help in this respect. It is not just cosmetic, teeth are for eating with after all!

I know how expensive implants can be but how much exactly, I have heard lots of prices quoted. I am a pensioner but the way I look is still important and more important still I like to eat!

How much would it cost to replace my two front teeth?

Thursday, July 21st, 2011
Q.

I have just left the royal marines after 8 yrs of service. During my time i had two of my front teeth knocked out. I was given a plate to wear but do not like the feeling of it in my mouth. I was told that to have implants i would need bone putting back in my gum first. Im just wondering what sort of cost this would be as i can not go on looking like this as im only 28.
Cheers for your help

What is the best option for my husband’s weak teeth?

Monday, July 11th, 2011
Q.

My fiance has very weak teeth. He is only 32 and now has to have a plate for one of his front teeth that had been capped but the tooth continued to rot underneath. He has good oral hygiene and does not want to end up with false teeth. Is there anything that you can recommend? We have considered veneers but I am concerned the tooth will continue to decay underneath which will ultimately require extraction anyway. Is there perhaps an alternative? We are getting married in December and would love to have this resolved.

Kind regards

What options do I have for replacing my rotten teeth?

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011
Q.

Hello Doctor, I hope you can help. 

I have missing teeth and all remaining are rotten. I am desperate to be able to speak without feeling self conscious. I have a limited budget. I need to know how much treatment will cost and what treatments are available to me. I have never had nice teeth and am unable to smile and live my life. I have felt suicidal at times as rhis has been a problem for many years. I dont know what the cost will be but can you let me know if any treatments are available and what they would involve.

Thank you for your time and advice
