Can you advise me on teeth loss due to periodontal disease?

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010
Q.
I suffer from periodontal disease and have already last 2 teeth. I have bone loss as a result of the disease. My periodontist tells me that I could not have implants as I have lost too much bone and I worry that I have had too much bone loss for dentures to be a possible option. My periodontist tells me that they do not work very well for people with periodontal disease. Unfortunately this was not explained to me 20 years ago when I started treatment or I could have made the decision to have the effected teeth extracted then. My front teeth do not seem to be too badly effected, it is mainly my molars one of which is quite mobile. Can you offer me any advice, I am 52 and I feel that my face is aging prematurely because of this problem and I worry about being without teeth at what, these days, is a relatively young age.,

can you help i had a tumour and need a cosmetic obturator

Monday, January 4th, 2010
Q.
Hi, I’m really hoping you can help with my problem. Back in July 2006 I had surgery to remove a rare benign tumour in my right upper jaw. Sadly they had to remove more than they first thought and it resulted in me losing part of my jaw bone and some of the roof of my mouth. I was fitted with a temporary obturator at the time and since then have had 3 permanent obturators made, non of which I have been able to use so I’m still having to use the temporary one I was first given. I was 19 at the time and I’m now 21 and it has affected my confidence greatly. Its very noticeable and I can’t smile on photos anymore which really upsets me. It’s got me down a lot and although the obturator fuctionally works (I can’t talk, eat or drink without it), cosmeticaly it just doesnt work at all. As I said I’m only 21 and have the rest of my life ahead and I want to feel normal again and have my confidence back. I graduated from my course earlier this week and I couldnt even smile on my graduation photos which I was really upset about. Also as a result of the surgery, it has moved one of my proper teeth at the front which looks horrible now. Previous to this I never had any problems with my teeth and had no fillings or anything. As I’ve been trying with the NHS now for 2 years to get a final obuturator and one that looks good which hasnt happened, I’m now looking elsewhere (I live in Newcastle). Would it be possible for your practise to make an obturator or help me in any way to get my confidence back and get on with my life again. Many Thanks,

Best option to repair or restore bad gum?

Monday, November 30th, 2009
Q.
My gums are very poor at the bottom of my mouth and have been pushed down by plaque etc ?? due to bad gum disease, I am in the process of rectifying this and also looking into implants for the teeth that it has effected. Is there anyway that the gums can then be repaired or restored so that theres not big gaps etc ??

Monday, November 30th, 2009
Q.
Hi,Doc,I had was involved in a traffic accident 20 years ago and lost 5 teeth.At the time i went to the dental hospital in edinburgh and had scans to see if it was possible to get implants.I was told because I had lost some bone in my jaw du e to accident,that there wasn,t enough to affix implants to,,since then i believe it is now possible to graft bone and therefore have procedure done..My question is: Since this was done through having an accident, Is possible to have procedure done on NHS, At the present time I am on incapacity benifits and DLA.Also I am a former seafarer and wonder if the dreadnought society could accomodate this.

Can I have implants if I have bone loss?

Thursday, November 12th, 2009
Q.
I have bone loss, non smoker all my life and no medical conditions. I am awaiting 3 top front teeth extrations (have been waiting 2 years), one hanging on by a small thread! hopefully I will be measured for a small plate. Taking daily pain relief and limited in what I can eat and very embarassing talking to patients myself as, I have a fractured tooth and it has dropped. Am I able to have implants if I have bone loss? was offered by dental hospital to have teeth splinted, but was told not a pretty sight, what do you think? Kind Regards

Tooth bridges has caused lot of problems

Saturday, November 7th, 2009
Q.
My 23-year-old daughter has a 6 tooth bridge across one incisor to the other. This was because she was missing 2 laterals. This was done instead of implants because of severe bone loss of the missing laterals and not enough space for implants. She did have braces but unfortunately had an orthodontist that didn’t know what he was doing, causing these problems. An excellent prosthodontist suggested either redo braces and gum grafting or a bridge. For monetary reasons and my daughter not wanting go through this all over again for years she chose a bridge. This is when she was 19. Is it possible for her to get implants and crowns or once a bridge, always at bridge?
