What Can You Tell Me About Dental Implants?

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016
Q.

I am quite worried about how many teeth I have lost. I am about to loose 3 more according to my dentist. My history is that many years ago I was the victim of an abusive boyfriend. I was hit so hard that I lost 2 teeth instantly. I then wore a transparent brace and then I had a bridge. I think over the years my teeth have been very weak. I would like some info on dental implants. This has affected my confidence immensely. I would welcome your thoughts.

Can I Get a Broken Bridge Fixed?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016
Q.

Hi Andrew, I wanted to ask you if I am able to fix an upper bridge that is broken. The dentist that made it for me 10 years ago has closed now and he has gone back to Africa where he was from. My bridge is 6 teeth in total and I have had screws on both sides. Now the bridge is broken in the middle on upper two front teeth (the one that was missing) and I have been using it with Fixodent now for the past two months. I still have the roots of 4 teeth, two in both sides where my previous dentist took the nerves out and screwed through to put the new bridge in. Words can not explain it how difficult is to live day to day. I do not have much money to fix it and the dentist that I am registered with at the moment is useless and he does not want to fix it. Can you please help? Looking forward to hearing from you.

How Much Would It Cost to Replace Teeth with a Bridge?

Friday, May 27th, 2016
Q.

How much would it cost to replace the four lower incisors with a bridge off the two lower canines?
I have an upper palate that the lower middle incisors hit when I bite. I have lost one of the incisors already and another is working loose. I have been informed that the bone is not strong enough for implants. Apparently the bone has receded and the wider incisors are not strong enough to support the bridge.

Can I Have My Own Bridge Put Back In?

Friday, May 20th, 2016
Q.

I have had a Maryland bridge since 1991/92. It has been fine until the last month or so. It started to become painful and uncomfortable for some reason and I could feel the metal at the bottom of the tooth it was attached to. I have always tried to keep the area flossed over the years and recently used the little brushes from the chemists, but there has been an area at the top/back which I have not been able access. Question 1) has the cement started to crumble?
Question 2) I would like to know, is it possible put my same bridge back? As its a perfect match.

Would a Bridge Solve My Dental Problems?

Thursday, September 24th, 2015
Q.

I have six upper front crowns due to tetracycline staining. They are four years old. One of them has completely broken including the tooth. The others will probably follow suit so I wanted to have all six teeth removed and have a bridge fitted so I no longer have to worry about the next expensive disaster. Embarrassment too. Please tell me this is reasonable. I am 51 and allergic to several dental bonding agents too.

Could Flossing Be Irritating My Gums Under My Bridge?

Thursday, August 13th, 2015
Q.

I have a bridge and it feels loose up on my gums. The bridge itself is not loose but I feel the sensation that it is. I saw my dentist yesterday and he did an x-ray which confirmed it is not loose but my gums are irritated. He advised rinsing with salt and warm water and also a non-alcohol mouth wash. I have a follow up appointment in 3 weeks. I first noticed this feeling after my normal check up after the hygienist flossed my bridge. I use a waterpik flosser and thought that maybe the flossing with dental floss vs. my normal waterpik irritated my gums. Do you have any suggestions as to why I may be feeling this moving sensation in my gums?

Thank you!

What’s Wrong With My Bridge?

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015
Q.

Hi. I have a 3 piece bridge on the upper right side. The gum smells awful and my other half complains of the smell. My regular dentist said it looks fine. A water/air floss helps for 1-2 hours. There has been lots of bleeding but it has stopped since using Corsodyl in water floss. Also, I get sort of a suction effect where my cheek can be pulled into the bridge area with a sucking motion. I’m not sure exactly which part. Do you have any thoughts or treatment suggestions? Was a bridge a bad idea? That’s what I’m thinking now. Kind regards.

Should I Get My Crown Replaced Before it Breaks?

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015
Q.

My bridge on the upper right side is 20 years old. My dentist says it could break at any time. One of the teeth it is attached to has had root canal treatment and my dentist has filled it for now. Should I go ahead and replace it before it breaks? I am 72 years old and have several jaw teeth missing and several fillings in the remaining teeth. I have 3 teeth on the bridge and 4 single crowns. My two upper front teeth have large fillings and will eventually need crowns. I am a diabetic and have had lung cancer with a lobectomy last year to remove a tumor. Thank you.

Why Are My Teeth Painful After Having a Bridge Fitted?

Friday, May 1st, 2015
Q.

I have had a 4 tooth bridge fixed over 2 teeth at the back of my lower jaw. I have 1 tooth at the back, then a gap, another tooth and another gap then my front lower teeth. Since I have had this procedure I am unable to drink hot or cold liquids and chewing is almost impossible because of the pain in the 2 teeth. Could you please explain this? I have been told now that I need root canal work done. These teeth were no problem before, so why are they now?

Is a Bridge Covered in Band 3 NHS Prices?

Thursday, April 30th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I have two teeth that need extracting and had asked my NHS dentist about having a fixed brace. I felt as though she was trying to sell me implants at a cost of £2000 each. She also advised that a bridge would cost about £1500. She did mention partial dentures, although I don’t feel this would be the right treatment for me. I had thought a bridge was covered in band 3 NHS prices? Can you advise please?
