My Dentures are Uncomfortable. What Can Be Done?

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I have had all my teeth taken out on the NHS, except one wisdom tooth. The reason they were removed was my bone/gums were receding. I have been left with hardly any bridge to hold lower dentures, but my dentist has used a clip to hold the one remaining tooth. This is okay whilst it’s in but there’s going too be problems when I lose it. Both my top and bottom dentures are so uncomfortable, and my face shape has changed an awful lot.
Is there anything that can be done?
Thank you.

Why Does My New Denture Give Me a Sunken In Appearance?

Monday, April 20th, 2015
Q.

I had an all-on-four procedure done almost two years ago now. The dentist has had me in for repeated try-ins of the final denture but it doesn’t look right. The upper denture makes me look like I have a sunken in appearance with no teeth showing. It makes me look old and toothless. Can you tell me why, and what might correct this? The dentist is a really nice guy but I’m really embarrassed by my appearance. They also have a lot more material on them than I was expecting. I was shown a completely different denture that fit against my gums without all the extra acrylic in my mouth. Help please!

Should I Go Abroad for Cheaper Dental Treatment?

Thursday, March 19th, 2015
Q.

Hi there. I’m thinking of going to India or Korea for possible implant dental work. Is it possible to get All-On-4 work done there? Do you think I am taking a risk? Are the dentists there as qualified as every time you speak to a UK dentist? They always make you feel that the work would be vastly inferior (though they don’t actually come out and say it) if you should go any where other than the UK. I am so confused as I feel that dentists in the UK actually charge prices that are so expensive, and I cannot see why. I am so confused and the whole thing is getting me down with the conflicting points of view. I really would appreciate your expertise and opinion. P.S. Are you also very expensive? As I would prefer not to travel abroad, but the high prices of dentists in the UK leave me little choice.

What Alternatives Are There for Implants?

Friday, January 30th, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I’m 56 years old and have lost half of my teeth and about to lose two more.
I believe that I am not suitable for implants on metal spikes as I have lost to much bone for this procedure.
I have heard about a procedure where the teeth are glued in. Could you tell me what this procedure is called and what I might be expected to pay? Thank you for any help you can give.

I Can’t Afford To Have A Bone Graft With Dental Implants. Would A Unit 4 Bridge Attached To Implants Be Less Costly?

Monday, September 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I’ve had a bridge for roughly 15 years, it was for one missing central incisor due to a accident as a child but my other central incisor which the wing is attached to is failing and needs to be extracted.  I want implants but due to bone loss I’d need a bone graft for both my two front teeth which I can’t afford as well as dental implants, could I remove both lateral incisors to get immediate implants with a 4 unit bridge to avoid bone graft? Thank you.

Could I Have All My Teeth Extracted and All On 4 Done on the Same Day?

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have extremely bad teeth because of drug abuse and from never looking after them properly in the past. There are more fillings than there is enamel now, and I also have seven crowns. I am not in any pain or discomfort or anything like that and I have been looking after my mouth properly now that I am drug- and alcohol- free. Would it be possible for me to have all of my teeth extracted and get All On 4 done on the same day, or would I have to wait for the gums to heal before a dentist could start the All On 4? Thank you for your time, I hope you can answer my question.

My Crown Keeps Falling Out And Would Need A Denture If It Falls Out Again. How Much Would It Cost To Have Implants For 3/4 Teeth?

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014
Q.

Hi there. I have just been to my dentist and had one of my crowns re-fixed yet again, probably for the sixth time. I was told that the dentist that originally fixed the crown, didn’t check that the post was long enough and that’s why it falls out on occasions. Next to the crown is a bridge that is fixed to a now cracked tooth so it wobbles, the bridge has wobbled for about 10 years only coming out once. I asked the dentist this morning what it if comes out again, they said that they won’t cement it in again and I would have to have a denture, which fills me full of dread. I am a pensioner and don’t have a large income and wondered if there would be an alternative on the NHS, or how much would it cost to have implants for 3/4 teeth? My own teeth are shrinking so next to the crown it’s considerably smaller.

I Have Been Considering Dental Implants But Find Them Costly? Could You Advise Me?

Monday, August 11th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Patel, I am 54 years old and an ex-smoker. My teeth are mostly bridges, and my question is: Could I have these replaced for a whiter, brighter smile? I have being considering implants so as to have something more permanent, but found them to be very costly. I do understand you can pay monthly which I am considering at a lesser cost to replacing what I already have. Could you advise me? Or do I need to see dentist? Thank you for your time.

I Struggle To Keep My Dentures In As I Have Emphysema And Cough A Lot. What Can I Do To Hold Them In Place?

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I am female and aged 63. I have emphysema and I cough continuously, I have recently had my teeth out due to gum disease and have partial plate both top and bottom. I have tried to wear the dentures from May but I continually gag and end up being sick, I am lucky if I can keep them in for an hour. My dentist says he can not take any more from the top plate and if he did there would not be enough plate left to hold them in. If it’s not the gag reflex it’s the cough, please help. Thank you for your time.

I Need To Change My Smile But My Credit History Is Poor. Could I Still Pay Monthly?

Thursday, July 31st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr. Riten.
I have a big problem with my teeth. I saw in your website that you can do same day implants, which is really good.
My problem is that my credit history isn’t really good. Would it be possible to pay monthly without searching my credit history? Having a nice full set of teeth is my dream. I have a full time job, and my monthly salary is good and as full my teeth are important for me I can afford to pay each month. Thank you for your time and answering a question.
