How Do I Go About Finding A Good Implantologist In My Area So I Can Get My Fracture Fixed?

Thursday, November 7th, 2013
Q.

February I had a root canal treatment on a lower right side molar (third from back without a wisdom tooth) and have today been told I have a fracture which means the only option is to remove the tooth.

The X-rays don’t show the fracture but I have had pain when biting and with cold air for a while so am not surprised by the result and I was warned it was a possibility.

My NHS dentist has suggested being referred for a dental implant after the extraction. Can you please advise how I go about finding a good surgeon in the North West as I read on one of your posts it is important to go to someone who will use quality implants? How do I know though? Also, I have been reading about material being inserted when a tooth is removed to encourage bone regeneration, so is it best to have the extraction and implant all done by the same private dentist or can I have the extraction done at the NHS one and think about the implant later?

Dr Riten, I Need Your Help With My Loose Teeth. What Can Be Done?

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Riten,

To cut a long story short, I am unfortunately suffering the consequences of a protracted period in my life where I never regularly went to the dentist. I have in recent years had some periodontal treatment to try to put some of this right, but I am still having problems. My teeth are actually in quite good shape, it’s my gums and bone loss that is the problem.

I now have some loose teeth, and my gums have receded to quite a large degree. I am also feeling discomfort when eating on one side of my mouth. This has dramatically worsened in the last twelve months.

I am now at a point where it is causing me to feel extremely self conscious, and, despite my nervousness at the thought of getting the situation rectified, I know I must.

I would love to attend the Mulberry Clinic, as I tend to be in the area during the week, and the glowing reports of the clinic are second to none. However, I do live in Taunton in Somerset, and was wondering if there may be somewhere more local to my home address that you could possibly recommend? Any advice would be extremely gratefully received.

Best regards.

I keep getting infections and needing apicoectomies after breaking my teeth when younger. Should I get implants or just keep taking antibiotics?

Thursday, November 4th, 2010
Q.
Hi, please can you help. I am a 43 year old female and broke my front teeth when I was 8. Since then I had have 2 lots of crowns on my front 4 teeth and although I have looked after them, I have had extensive problems for approx 20 years with frequent abscesses and have had 5 apicetomy’s over the years. I now have another abscess on my front teeth and have been advised that no further apicetomy’s can be performed and I have the options of either a plate, a bridge or implants. I understand the best option would be implants (albeit very costly), and have been advised that most of my gums would be lost, so astechically they will not look as good as they do right now. How can I be sure though, that after having them taken out and having either implants or a bridge, that another infection will not occur, since 5 apicetomy’s have not stopped subsequent infections and that this would affect my implants or bridge and I may be left with just the option of a plate, which I certainly do not want. If infection is likely to occur again (I have also had abscesses lanced inbetween apicetomys, so have had a LOT of infections), would an option be to leave the teeth as they are and take frequent courses of antiobiotics to keep the infection at bay, since I am in no pain and they look very good. I do not want to pay out a lot of money, only for an injection to re-occur and the implants/bridge be affected. Please can you advise?,

Why will my implant treatment require two stages?

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010
Q.
Hi Rob, Im getting an inplant done for a missing top front tooth, my dentist wants to do a two stage procedure, Im wondering why its neccessary for a two stage, and why i cant have the permanent crown put on the implant after the first healing time of the gum.? Is this something to do with asthetics and the gum moulding around the temporary tooth? I wonder why the gum cant naturally heal around the final crown. Im due for the surgery on thurs so a reply pretty soon would be great, thanks.

Should I just have my problematic tooth extracted?

Friday, May 21st, 2010
Q.
Hi. I had root canal on molar Number 18 twenty years ago. The tooth then became infected 10 years later and a second root canal was performed drilling through the crown. Now, This same tooth has become infected again. One of the dentist in my dentist’s office feels it would prove beneficial to have the tooth extracted. I am a bit apprehensive considering this same dentist sent three patients before me on the same day to the oral surgeon to have one of their teeth extracted. With the history of my tooth, could it be treated with antibiotics or do you feel extracting it makes more sense. I am 38 years old and would hate to start losing teeth now. I appreciate whatever input you have to offer. Kind Regards.,
