How Can I Get My Periodontal Disease Under Control?

Friday, November 4th, 2016
Q.

Please, I need help. I was diagnosed with having advanced periodontal disease when I was in my late 20s and now the bone that supports my teeth is almost nothing. I have already lost a few teeth and all my teeth are loose. I’m 52 years old but feel my life is over. My confidence has diminished, I’m depressed, I’m desperate for help or any advice you could give. I would be most grateful for help.

I Have Advanced Periodontitis. What Are My Options Regarding A Bone Graft For Implants?

Friday, July 11th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have been told that I have advanced periodontitis. The dentist has said this is idiosyncratic and mentioned my body fighting it’s own bacteria? I know that many members of my father’s side of the family have had problems with their gums. He has also said I will gradually lose my teeth ( My bottom back 3rd molar is already loose) and would not be a suitable candidate for implants. I would like to know my options i.e bone graft etc. I am 37 year old ex-smoker.

I Have Dentures Which I Dislike. Would I Be Suitable For Dental Implants?

Monday, November 18th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have upper dentures and only 9 bottom teeth because of advanced gum disease. I want to know if a whole upper implant is possible and how costly it would be if it was possible? I have disliked the dentures since I had my teeth removed against my will. Please reply as I am living in agony with dentures. I have seen many people with implants and it is what I would like to have. I do have dental coverage, although they may not include implants. Thank you.

I’m Fed Up Of My Removable Denture, How Can I Replace My Missing Teeth?

Monday, July 15th, 2013
Q.

I am 41 yrs old,non;smoker,general good health.MY teeth are fine but owing to 15 yr gap in visits to dentist I (According to X -ray image)I now have advanced gum disease which will not respond to treatment,at least at a non specialist level,specialist treatment for me would be prohibitively expensive.consequently the rear molar on either side of the lower jaw has been removed-according to my dentist this now leaves my bottom teeth in a stable state,however 2 front teeth on the upper jaw have also been removed
and the 3 behind the right canine
also have infection beneath them and thus are scheduled for removal in near future.I already have a small denture for the missing front 2 teeth which slides into place without clips but this has to be removed in order to eat any but the softest foods.If all these teeth are removed is any infection
likely to be contained?can you suggest appropriate methods to replace missing teeth which might
be more secure than those I currently use?

I was diagnosed with SLE and then developed advanced periodontal disease and bone loss. Can I receive NHS help?

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012
Q.

Hello Dr Shaffie. Can you please provide me with some guidance. I had gum disease which my dental practitioner was treating successfully at this point. I was then diagnosed with Systemic lupus erythematosus approximately three years ago, and was as a consequence put on Hydroxychloroquine and methotexrate. Since then my teeth have gotten to quite a bad condition with several loose and some missing. I have been told by my dentist that I have advanced periodontal disease and bone loss. I don’t know if I have the dental terminology right with that but I was hoping you would be able to let me know if I am able to receive financial help from the NHS for this problem or some other source to help fix my dental problems. I hope you are able to let me know and thank you.
