My Teeth Are Decaying And It Hurts To Speak. What Are My Options? Surely I Can Get Treatment Through The NHS?

Q.
Hi Andrew. I have 3 missing back teeth on my bottom jaw lower left 7 and 6 and lower right 6 with 7. It’s giving me agony as I speak. It has a big hole in it and I imagine it’s on its way, my lower left and right 5 also has decay. Eating is a nightmare as my bottom as I desperately need implants. I am only 30 years old and my teeth are ruined. Surely I can get treatment on the NHS or something? I really could not imagine spending another 30 years with no back teeth as its so horrible and uncomfortable it takes me ages to eat.  What are my options for this and is there any way I can afford treatment? Thank you for your reply.

Hello and thank you for getting in touch. You need to find a local implant dentist for a full consultation and CT scan to assess you and see if you are a good candidate for implants. Then you can start to work to pay for treatment. Dentures are another option but I would need to see you in person to determine whether this is correct. The NHS will not cover dental implant treatment. You could ask your dentist to refer you to a dental hospital. Alternatively you could work out some payment plan to spread the costs. I hope this helps. Regards, Dr Andrew Moore.
