Can you tell me where I can receive the new Lanap treatment?

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012
Q.

Where is London can I get Lanap treatment – have severe peridontal disease – 50% bone erosion in places. Just had xrays completed. Front tooth has limited bone left and dentist talking about stabalisation asap. Always had a few pockets that were cleaned on a regular basis – but I did lapse for the last 18 months – but no real symptoms over that period – continued brushing and flossing. Literally 5 days ago I became very aware that my front tooth was very sensitive and shaky hence visit to dentist. In some places she noticed the pocket was a measurement of 9 – seems have heriditary issues as opposed to very bad oral health. I obviously want to address this and she has advised a course of deep cleaning across all quadrants etc – but this lanap treatment seems like a route that may be very beneficial to me – however I cannot find a dentist in London that actually provides it – Can you help?

Can I have dental implants to solve bone loss due to missing teeth?

Friday, May 18th, 2012
Q.

I have a crown on top upper left jaw which is going rotten. I have no other teeth either side and I am told I have hardly any bone surrounding the missing teeth area. Can I still have implants even though there is hardly any bone in that area because my dentist told me that he could take that crown out but surely I would be left with sagging cheeks. I cannot have a bridge because I do not like the impressions as they make me gag and to fill a missing tooth on the other side of my mouth he said would be an option but would an implant be better depending on the cost of course. Thanks

I have severe periodontitis and wanted to know the best replacement treatment for my teeth.

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011
Q.

Please could you advise me i am so worried and although i know the situation is terrible some sound advice would at least help me to rest. I have aggressive periodontitis. With the result that i am only 34 and my bone loss is so sever on my front bottom teeth that my dentist said that i won’t them for much longer. I have moved around a lot in my life and seen different dentists and therefore not been under the care of one. This dentist said she will refer me to the hospital after my next hygienist visit but this will be in three months time. Meanwhile she said that there is nothing i can do but wait for my teeth to fall out (aside of course from impeccable hygiene).

My question is this. Would it be better to have my teeth pulled out to preserve any bone that remains. And is it possible if the bone loss is so severe that i may not be able to have dentures? This is my worst nightmare.
I have researched online and would like to know if periodontal laser therapy might be an option.

I do appreciate how busy you are but would so greatly appreciate any advice you are able to give me.
P.S I currently get help with NHS costs as although iam a professional I am a single parent. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond.

can you tell me what the long term effects would be of not having my infected tooth removed?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011
Q.

I have a continuing infection in a tooth which has had root canal treatment several years ago. There is considerable bone loss now and the tooth gets loose and then tightens up again when the infection has passed. My dentist recommends that I have the tooth removed but I am a bit of a coward. Could you advise me what the long term effects are if I do not have the tooth removed. I have heard that it could cause me to become very ill if I allow it to continue.

Q.

Salaam.
I am suffering from grade 4 mobility with bone loss. The affected teeth are upper 2 incisors and upper left pre-molar. The doctor has suggested fixed tooth implantation but I dont want to go for it. Can you please suggest me some alternate treatment?

Is orthodontic work not recommended if there is 8mm bone loss?

Monday, March 28th, 2011
Q.

Is it true that orthodontic treatment can not be used if there is bone loss due to a gap (8mm) and in order to close the gap bone graft needs to be performed first?

What is the best treatment based on me having a large diastema and bone loss?

Monday, March 28th, 2011
Q.

Hi, I suffer from an extra large diastema between the top two centrals (8mm). I’m 43 hence there’s no bone under the 8mm gap. Tried many treatments but it ends up more deformed and un-natural.
What’s the best way to have a nice looking smile?

Can I have invisalign even though I have bone loss and receding gums?

Monday, March 28th, 2011
Q.

I previously had some gum disease which resulted in a small amount of bone loss on my back two teeth, according to my private dentist when he took routine x-rays. My gums are pink and healthy now and I use an electric toothbrush. However I noticed a long time ago that two of my upper front teeth had receded a bit and my tooth arent perfectly straight either (despite having braces when I was 15). I would really like to have a perfect smile. Would invisalign work (my teeth are otherwise white and healthy, no fillings) or would that make the receding gums worse? would lumineers be a better option?
