I Need Braces To Open Up A Space For Dental Implants. Can Braces Be Placed Over A Maryland Bridge?

Monday, October 14th, 2013
Q.

Hi there, I had braces as a child to open up space for my missing lateral incisors to be placed with dental implants when I was old enough, now I am 18 years old and have been told I will need braces once again as there is not enough space in the roots for dental implants, I am getting braces to open up roots space for dental implants for my missing laterals which are currently replaced with a Maryland bridge, can braces be placed over the bridge I have? Also what is the estimated time for the braces to open up a few mm of root space?

I Would Like To Know If A Maryland Bridge Is At All Suitable For Double Teeth?

Friday, October 11th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I have a question I’ve been wondering about. Can a Maryland bridge be used for double teeth or are they only for the front single teeth?
I have a double tooth snapped off and I wonder if once extracted it could be replaced with a Maryland bridge.
I also have a single tooth snapped off that I think needs to be extracted. The single tooth is next to a tooth that has one side of the metal wing of the Maryland bridge attached to it. Is it possible to attach another wing to the same tooth? Thanks for answering my question, it’s much appreciated.

I Currently Have A NHS Denture Which Is Unbearable, How Much Does An Upper Implant Denture Cost?

Thursday, October 10th, 2013
Q.

Hi, hello. How much would you estimate an upper implant denture to cost? I am only a 43 female and I have had to rely on a full NHS denture for a few years which I cannot bear any longer. My confidence is at an all time low and thought a denture implant may be the answer to my problems. I am in good health but lost my teeth after pregnancy and I cannot carry on with my current dentures. Also can you get a lower implant denture. When I got my last set of dentures you could see that teeth aren’t sitting straight and dentist has you in and out of chair in minutes, which really isn’t good enough.

I Am About To Lose A Tooth Transplant I Had Fitted Twenty Seven Years Ago, I Have Gaps In My Teeth Also, What Kind Of Costs Am I Looking At?

Thursday, October 10th, 2013
Q.

Hell Dr Patel, I hope you can help me out. How much would you say it costs to get a bridge? I have previously had root canal treatment for a crown but I am missing the tooth next door to it. I also have a loose tooth on the other side. I am embarrassed to smile because I have a gap in the front of my teeth and now I have gaps in the side of my mouth starting to appear and this is distressing me. I have been told that I have bone shrinkage on the right hand side and that’s why I am about to lose my tooth which was a tooth transplant which I had twenty seven years ago. Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer me.

Will I Be Able To Get Dental Implants For Free Whilst Claiming Job-Seekers Allowance?

Friday, October 4th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I have been looking for a good dentist for a long time and finally I saw your website and I was relieved. I have got some quite extensive problems with my teeth but I have not got the amount of money the dental implants are priced at, therefore I wanted to ask you, If I’m claiming job-seekers allowance, do I still have to pay the full price for dental implants? Also, is it possible to stabilise dentures? If yes, how much do they cost if I was claiming job-seekers allowance? Thank you in advance for your consideration, I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Dr, I Have Bad Toothache Which Is Throbbing, I’ve Read That My Tooth Might Be Pulled, Will I Be Able To Replace It?

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Shaffie. I have a couple of problems I need to discuss. I have had some bad toothache on the left side and it is really hurting, throbbing, I get swollen glands and the pain also effects the left side of my face and my ear also hurts and the tooth is also decayed so it might be an abscessed tooth. When I brush my teeth, it always bleeds sometimes a lot of. I also have poor dental hygiene.

I have read online that the tooth is most likely pulled out – Can I replace the tooth ? How do I get rid of the pain? I really need some help with this.

Is It Possible To Cause Serious Nerve Damage With Dental Implants?

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013
Q.

Kings College London Dental college has warned that dental implants could damage the nerve with serious consequences. What is your opinion on the risk involved in this type of dentistry?

I have one tooth missing and am considering a dental implant however I wish to establish the amount of risk to the nerve in view of this report.

I also would like to have some idea of the cost involved in this kind of treatment. I have already have a full head X-ray by the dentist who extracted my tooth. She said I would not need bone augmentation or sinus lift to her knowledge but she advised me to seek a dentist practising in implants.

Thank you for any information you can supply.

My Husband Struggles To Eat Properly As His Dentures Don’t Stay Firm, Can He Have Implants To Solve This Problem?

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Patel, what I’d like to mention is about my husband who currently has no bottom teeth and a top denture, he had a bottom denture made but does not wear it as it does not stay firm when eating or talking. He has trouble eating a lot of foods, as he cannot chew it properly, eg: Salads, he cannot chew lettuce, most other foods he just sucks or mushes with his tongue, not very enjoyable for him. I have heard previously that you can get two screw in teeth and then a denture that will clip to these, hence no movement of bottom plate. Was wondering what cost would be involved and how long procedure would take? I really hope you can help us sort this out.

How Long Will It Take For Braces To Open Up A Gap For A Dental Implant To Be Fitted?

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013
Q.

Hello there Dr Shaffie, when I was Twelve years old I had braces to open up a space. This space had to be opened up in order to compensate for my missing lateral incisors which had to be replaced with dental implants. Now I am Eighteen years old and have been told there is not enough space in the roots to place the actual dental implant and I have been advised to have even more orthodontic treatment, I am just wondering if I need the braces, then how long it would take to open up roughly 3/4mm of space for dental implants to be placed? Thanks, I really hope you can help me sort this problem out?

I’m About To Have Most Of My Teeth Out Before I Get Married And I Want To Know If Anything Else Can Be Done Other Than Dentures Or Implants?

Monday, September 30th, 2013
Q.

I need most of my teeth removed as I can’t afford implants. Are there any other alternative options other than dentures or implants as I am getting married and my teeth are rotten and brown, I’m embarrassed to smile. I will have 6 remaining teeth, 2 at the top and 4 at the bottom. I have had mental health issues that prevented treatment earlier, I’m in a lot of pain and I need to feel confident and look good on my wedding day.  I get lots of comments and funny looks at the moment and it knocks my confidence back down, I am desperate to have a bit of confidence back and to control my mental health and I feel a nice, healthy smile would help me achieve that.
