My Father Needs Bridges And Gold Teeth Fitted. How Much Will This Cost?

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Patel I’d like to enquire about implants and bridges for my father. Mainly with regard to his two front teeth as they need to be gold. Not sure if he can afford the prices, what are your best prices? He still has his front teeth but the two that are besides it are missing and now he’s really quite scared he will lose either of his front teeth which is causing some distress. Could you please help the situation, this would be great. I’m sure he’d like to hear from any other treatments options you can suggest also. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

Hi, I Have Two Dental Implants Which Are Crumbling And Need To Come Out. What Should I Do?

Friday, November 1st, 2013
Q.

Dear Dr Shaffie. I hope you can help me. I currently have two dental implants on the back lower teeth which are crumbling and need to come out. I really do not want to go through implants again as they are costly and the bridge I was told that I would have to have to have needs something going behind my lower teeth in order to connect and hold the bridge in place. Is there anything else I could have as an alternative? I am nervous that the material of the bridge would bother me and I would feel it constantly. Can they make something like a small denture to snap on is there, is there such a thing? Thank you.

I Need A Permanent Solution As I Don’t Like Wearing Partial Dentures. What Can Be Done?

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, I have periodontitis also known as gum disease, and just had my lower two teeth pulled out yesterday. I’m on partial dentures at the moment and I hate the feel of it, I can’t afford dental implants and my dentist says that I would have to wait six months for the gums to heal and he will give me a Maryland bridge only after six months. My X-ray has shown that the supporting teeth will hold it fine, I’m really depressed and need a permanent solution? Is this the correct treatment option to take? I hope you can hope me sort this out as I’m getting sick of it. Thank you.

I Don’t Know Why My Teeth Are Breaking, I’m Scared I’ll Need A Mouth Full Of Implants. Could It Be A Vitamin Deficiency?

Monday, October 28th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. I would really like to know why my teeth keep breaking, could it have anything to do with a vitamin B12 deficiency? I’m finding I cannot afford to look after them. Is there any help I can receive? Top and bottom on both sides teeth have just snapped, I’m finding it difficult to smile and usually I’m a happy person but this is depressing me. My gums are okay though. I eat healthily and never eat sweets but I do indulge in savoury foods. My sister has had gum disease and had to have a full mouth of implants, I’m a bit scared that will be me soon.

I Have Been Told I Need A Frenectomy. Could You Tell Me If This Procedure Is Necessary In My Case?

Thursday, October 24th, 2013
Q.

Is a libial frenectomy necessary before placing an implant in the front upper jaw? Or is the frenectomy necessary just for the sake of fitting a partial denture, as in my case? As my local dentist performed frenectomy, saying that it was very much essential before placing an implant. I have lost a single tooth at the front upper region. Kindly provide me some information about the frenectomy procedure and whether it’s essential before placing an implant?

I Have Crowns Coming Loose And One Is Being Held In Place With A Peg. What Can Be Done To Fix It?

Thursday, October 24th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I have crowns on either side of my front teeth and the left one is loose and being held in by tooth peg which I think has maybe caused an infection as my gums are sensitive and bleed now and my right has ‘snapped’ off half way so I still have the top part remaining in my gum. Can I have these two teeth removed and put onto a pallet? My loose right crown has come out once before and was immediately loose after being put back in by a dentist hence the tooth peg. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer in advance.

The Screws In My Wife’s Implants Are Coming Loose, What Is The Cost Of Replacing The Component Restorative Portion?

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. My wife has Nobel Biocare implants and it seems the top denture is removable and the bottom one in permanent. She has had them for seven years. They are getting loose and needs new screws to hold them in place. As it is there used to be a gap between the denture and the gum line, it is no longer there and it is causing her some discomfort. What would be the cost of component restorative portion? How long does the procedure take? Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me on this matter.

I Had Implants Done Abroad, And I Need The Crowns My Dentist Sent By Courier To Be Fitted In The UK. How Would This Be Done?

Thursday, October 17th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Shaffie. I already have two dental implants done abroad. The crowns had to be replaced because they were not firm, my dentist took new teeth impressions and had new crowns made, but unfortunately they were not ready when I left for my studies in the UK. My dentist has sent them to me by courier. I would like to find out if I can have them fitted here in the UK? I am currently studying in Cardiff. How much would it cost to fit them? Would a dentist be willing to take on a patient just to fit already prepared crowns? You would really be helping me out if you could offer any advice. Thanks.

Good Morning, I Am Sixty-Two And In Good Health. I Want To Know If Cosmetic Surgery Has Advanced Enough For Bone And Implant Surgery To Be Safe At My Age?

Monday, October 14th, 2013
Q.

Good Morning,

I am a 62 year old male in very good health and when I was 12 years old was involved in an accident where I lost my four upper front teeth. Over the years my upper teeth have suffered and I am losing them gradually. My question therefore is this: Has cosmetic dentistry advanced enough that I could have bone implant and implant surgery at my age and would there be any health risk in doing so?

Many thanks.
