Can I get implants despite significant bone loss?

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011
Q.

5 years ago I had cosmetic work on my teeth because old crowns needed replacing etc however I have suffered a lot of pain and discomfort and lost several of my molers
(top) putting additional pressure on other teeth and large gaps at the back, I also have significant bone loss and doubt if implants are now an option unless I have a bone graft? a friend of mine has recently been attending a place in Budapest , they have rebuilt her gums with a type of cement that self levels after 6 months she can then have implants, is it possible to get this type of treatment in the UK and at waht cost?

What are the best options to save my smile if I suffer from advanceed periodontal disease?

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010
Q.

hi , i am 43 and have quite advanced periodontal disease , also an overbite on my top teeth and tmj disorder . i have already had 5 teeth removed , and today i saw a periodontist and he said i need another 3 out but not replace them .. this periodontal disease started about 5 years ago . i do smoke , which i know is a huge factor in the disease .. what i want to know is if i had all my teeth removed , would that end the disease ? and could i then have implants to replace all my teeth ? or is it not possible because of gum and bone reduction ? my dentist is always saying they are trying to save my teeth , but whats the point if they are destroying whats underneath ??? Any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated as at present I am finding this deeply depressing at the moment in time

What can I do about bonding that has become discoloured?

Friday, December 3rd, 2010
Q.

I am a 47 year old female. I had peridontal surgery 22 years ago and am fortunate to still have my teeth, however I am not happy with the looks of them. Some years back my dentist bonded them to make the more stable. The bonding has discolored from the color of my teeth and no longer looks very good. I have had it redone a couple times but he says it doesn’t adhere well after the first time because of not having the porous tooth surface to adhere too. I do have a lot of bone loss, but it has held its own for all these years and when I smile you really can’t see that. Guess the discoloration is my main concern. He talked about a partial but I’m not ready to give up my teeth yet. Thanks
