I have bone loss but need quite a few implants the thought of dentures depresses me how much would implants cost and how long would it take?

January 31st, 2008
Q.
Dear Dr Caplan I am 49 years old and have substantial bone loss top and bottom jaws. I have in the past been referred to the dental section of Torbay hospital and now I have my teeth strapped upper and lower. Last year I had some xrays taken and my then dentist thought that there might be enough bone for implants but I would need quite a few I think. I believe the cost would be very expensive but the thought of dentures makes me so depressed. I wondered if you might be able to give me an indication on time span and cost if that my be possible. Yours Sincerely S

One of my dental implants has fallen out what is the cause of that ?

January 31st, 2008
Q.
I had a couple of implants, 6 and 7, inserted in one session at the beginning of 2006 after bone transplant. Since then biting on that side has not caused me any problems. However, last month the No 7 tooth became loose and, despite antibitiotics treatment, quickly fell out. What would be the likely cause of that (infection?) and can anything be done now please? Many thanks I K

Dental veneers for straight teeth ?

January 30th, 2008
Q.
Dear Dr Riten Patel,
Hello, I am just planning on getting Veneers. I am 18 years of age, and my teeth are really getting to me. There in no disgusting state, well actually far from it. But the idea of having straight teeth is just amazing. Especially being in the performing industry. I have been knocked back for a few jobs because of my teeth. And sometimes not gone to auditions because of them. If you could help. Would be amazing.
