Can I Have Dentures Without a Plate?

Monday, September 8th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I currently have upper dentures. Would it be possible to have them without the plate? I struggle to wear them with the plate as I have a bad gag reflex so it makes me retch. The teeth are a good fit and I want to know if I could have the plate removed if they will stay in place with fixative. I only have three of my own natural teeth on my upper jaw, and can’t afford implants but am desperate to wear the dentures as I am too self conscious to smile without teeth. My daughter is getting married this year and I want to be able to smile in the photos on her wedding day. Thank you in advance.

I’ve Not Looked After My Teeth. A Couple Of Teeth Are Rotten And Wonky. Should I Have Them All Removed And Replaced?

Thursday, August 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello Marcus.

Okay so I’m in a pretty bad situation.

I’ve unfortunately not been taking care of my teeth for a number of years and due to this I have now got a couple of teeth that have worn/rotten themselves down inside my gums.
Alongside this I have pretty wonky teeth. So inside of my mouth is a disaster.

Am I correct in thinking I have 2 options. Remove the bad teeth through the NHS and then pay for a brace to straighten the rest or take them all out and get a nice shiny set of new teeth?

Part 2 of my question would be asking you how much this would cost. Am I liable to get this done for free as a 24 year old, unemployed graduate? Hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you.

My Crown Had To Be Cracked Out As It Seemed To Be Stuck On Something. Do You Have Any Idea What This Could Be?

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. My front tooth fell out weeks after 4 front crowns were placed. It was cemented back in a couple months ago and the same crowned tooth  felt like it was going to come out again. This time the crown felt like it was hanging on by a thread. The crown had to be cracked out in the end. I was wondering what it was stuck on, do you have any idea what it could have been? Time went by the same crown fell out again within a few months. When it fell out it had a long plastic thing inside the crown. What was that inside of my crown? It was this time that I learned the tooth had decayed and it had to be extracted. I am waiting for an implant on this tooth.

I Had A Cyst And I May Be Left With A Gap After Surgery. Will The NHS Sort This Out As It’s A Result Of An Operation?

Monday, June 23rd, 2014
Q.

My NHS dentist noticed that a couple of my front teeth appeared to be coming loose so they did an X-ray and found something on the X-ray and referred me to hospital. The consultant at hospital thought it was a cyst and arranged for a biopsy. The results of the biopsy confirmed that it was a cyst – apparently the sort that has a one in three chance of coming back (it has drained a lot since the biopsy). So I have been referred somewhere else for an operation. I may lose a couple of teeth and/or need a plate in my jaw! If after all the surgery I am left with a gap in my front lower teeth will I have to pay to have something done myself with my dentist or would the NHS sort it out because it happened as the result of an operation. I am a bit unclear if I will just be left with a gap. Thank you for any advice.

My Old Bridge Has To Come Out Leaving A Gap. Can You Give Me An Idea Of How Much Implants Cost?

Friday, May 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. On my last visit to the dentist they said I would have to have my old bridge removed as there is a gap now between the tooth and the gum. It doesn’t bother me at all but they said it will have to come out. That will mean I’ll have a gap on either side of my mouth where the two at the back teeth used to be. They said a plate would be an option but I would prefer to have permanent teeth implanted. Could you give me an idea how much they cost? And if there are any other options available to me? Thank you.

I Got Knocked Off My Bike And Fractured My Tooth. Would Treatment For This Be Available Through The NHS?

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello,
I got knocked from my bike by a car last week and have fractured upper left 2, sublimed upper left 1 and chipped upper right 1. My dentist initially advised me to leave everything for a week and constantly wear my Invisalign aligner. I have done this and returned to the dentist today. I have been told this morning that upper left 2 has a vertical fracture with exposure of the nerve and needs to be removed. I have a few questions about treatment options. I have spent a lot of money and time over the last 5 years having orthodontic treatment and don’t want to have a noticeably abnormal tooth. What would be the best treatment option for this and would there be any way of getting some funding on the NHS to help pay for treatment?
Thanks.

I Have Been Told That I’m Going To Lose All Of My Teeth. How Much Does It Cost To Have Them Replaced?

Thursday, April 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I have had dental issues for many years and at my last appointment I was told that my teeth will fall out sooner rather than later (apparently my gums are not so healthy). That was about 9 months ago and I am yet to lose any teeth. I want to replace all my teeth with new ones so that I am able to progress in the entertainment industry. What I would like to know is, how much is a procedure such as this likely to cost? Thank you. I hope to hear from you soon.

I’m Scared To Have Another Root Canal In Case It Needs Extracting. What Are My Other Options?

Friday, April 11th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I had root canal many years ago, but it didn’t really cure the infections and I was always in pain. In the end I had to have both teeth extracted. I take great care with my teeth to the extent I have become a bit paranoid. I have now developed another infection which I am told I will have to have either root canal or extraction. I am petrified to have this done in case I lose another tooth, I will also have no teeth on my upper left jaw. What are my options? Thank you in advance for your reply.

I Had An Apicoectomy Last Week. Will My Gums Grow Back And How Long Will It Take To Heal?

Thursday, April 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I had an attempted apicoectomy last week. He cut a lot of my gum to expose tooth number 19. Because of an infection the Dr felt he did not want to take any more bone away and I should go the implant route. He closed me up. My gums along the tooth and teeth 20 21 22 are very exposed and sore. I feel as if the roots are partially exposed like I had significant recession. Will this gum grow back and what should I do if it doesn’t? I am in quite a bit of pain at the moment. Could you help me and tell me what I should do. Thank you.

Most Of My Teeth Fell Out Through Smoking. Is There Any Way I Could Get The 4 In A Day Treatment Through The NHS?

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I used to smoke. I stopped around 7 years ago but most of my teeth have fallen out due to it. I went by my local NHS dentist and he extracted a few teeth, primarily the ones which had decayed. He suggested that I should try dentures, but I am really struggling with dentures and I cannot eat or talk with it. I have had them changed 4 times now. And now my back teeth are now falling out as well. Was looking into the 4 in a day procedure. Can my dentist recommend that on NHS?
If so, how do I go about it? I look forward to your reply. Thanks.
