How Much Would 15 Dental Implants Cost?

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016
Q.

What are your charges for about 15 implants, all the top row and three on the bottom? I need to know all procedures and the time it will take from start to finish. I will need a scan for bone density for this amount of work to be done. I have many missing teeth and need this work carried out soon. I have a small denture, which is highly uncomfortable and I gag every time I put it in my mouth. It has 5 teeth on it. This is why I think my best option is implants that you don’t need to ever take out to clean and are more comfortable.

I Have Four Impacted Wisdom Teeth. Should I Have One Removed Even Though It’s Likely To Cause Root Resorption?

Thursday, October 16th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have two questions, the first regarding an implant: Is there any risk of nerve damage even with the use of a CT scan?  And one when it comes to the wisdom teeth: I am 23 years old and I have 4 mesial impacted wisdom teeth. I believe that they are fully surrounded by bone. A dental surgeon told me that one of them is causing minor bone damage around the 2nd molar. Is that the equivalent to root resorption? Is this a valid reason for extraction even though bone would have to be taken to extract the wisdom tooth? How much do wisdom teeth typically move at my age and will they likely/inevitably cause root resorption of the 2nd molar since they are impacted and there is not space for them to erupt? Does the likelihood of these problems, justify extracting them now even though I am experiencing no symptoms, just to avoid the increased extraction risks?

I Have Been Told That I Could Have A Lower Bone Graft For Dental Implants. Does This Sound Correct?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi. I have a full lower denture that is totally loose and unretentive to the point where I have to remove it in order to eat, although aesthetically it looks good.
I have been advised that I need a bone graft as the lower gum has been ground down to such an extent. I have no suction retention whatsoever due to a very dry mouth induced by necessary medication I need to take. I have been advised that after a lower bone graft I could be fitted with two conventional implants to give retention. My previous mini implants were unsatisfactory and needed to be removed. Does the advice I have been given sound right to you and does your clinic carry out such work?

Many thanks.

What Would Be The Better Option For Me A Dental Implant Or A Resin Bonded Bridge?

Monday, June 16th, 2014
Q.

Hi. My dentist has recommended a resin bonded bridge over an implant for my top left lateral tooth, as he does not believe the space of 6.5 millimeters is sufficient to enable an implant to be successfully inserted. Is this correct? The internet suggests that the minimum is nearer to 5 millimeters (allowing for 1 millimeter gap either side of the tooth).
He has also expressed concern that the bone may need grafting as traditionally the bone is thin in this area and usually inserts only last 10-12 years (with added risk of infection) opposed to the resin bond bridge which lasts up to 8 years normally. Again are these assertions correct/normal?

I Have 9 Teeth Extracted. Would There Be Some Kind Of Payment Plan Available To Have Implants?

Friday, May 2nd, 2014
Q.

I am having surgery done this soon. I’m having all the back teeth have been removed. I only have 11 bottom teeth and have had root canal treatment on 6. I know eventually these will have to be taken out at some point. I have looked after my teeth but right from the age of 5. I was always having work done. I went into hospital at 21 and had an operation on my upper gum resulting to gum disease and this left me absolutely horrified with the result. More treatment was needed resulting to crowns which kept falling out. My last dentist left the practice and I felt let down as he helped build my confidence up but now I am really scared of the what might happen. The only option on NHS is a full denture plate. I am very nervous and worried about this as the feed back I’ve heard about dentures I would like to have implants instead. Would I be able to get them on some sort of payment plan?

Is It Possible For Me To Get Fixed Dentures? How Much Is This Likely To Cost?

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew, I’d like your help. I have had top full dentures for many years now and feel I would benefit from fixed dentures. Is this possible and how much is it likely to cost? I would also like implants on my lower jaw as I cannot wear my bottom partial plate without difficulty. Is there anything out there you could recommend to help me with this? I really hope to hear from you soon. Thank you in advance for any information you can provide me with.

I Want To Know How Much A Full Set Of Top Dental Implants Costs?

Monday, December 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I require your help. I want full set top implant supporting dentures but no matter how much I ask I cannot get a straight answer for how much it costs for mini or a standard full top set of supporting implants? Please help me with this as I currently have dentures that do not fit and when I told  my dental practice where I live, he told me to take them and go somewhere else. I can’t eat anything much other than soft food and my quality of life is not so good. I look forward to your reply.

I Still Get Pain From Root Canal Treatment I Had Years Ago. Can You Refer Me To Someone Who Can Help?

Friday, November 15th, 2013
Q.

Hello,
I had the first root canal treatment done over 10 years ago now. A few more canal treatments on the same tooth and the adjacent tooth followed as the first treatment has not resolved the pain I was suffering with. I have seen many dentists and some endodontics since then. All of them said the root canal work had been done exceptionally well and they can’t see anything which may cause pain. However I still suffer with an irritating, dull, sometimes pulsating spontaneous toothache and tender gum around them which comes and goes. I was in agony for 2 weeks after my recent visit to a hygienist. It drives me mad. Can you help or refer me to someone who can? Thank you.

I Have Chronic Periodontal Disease, Will All-On-Six Implants Stop The Disease In Future?

Friday, October 4th, 2013
Q.

I have chronic periodontal disease and bone loss, and wonder if I can I have the all-on-6 implants, will they last or will they fail because of my problems and is it true once teeth are removed, so will the gum disease be removed? What problems can arise with the implants, how often do you have them removed for cleaning? Can you still get abscess with implants as I do with my teeth now, and is it the type of implant that makes them suitable for people like myself? Everyone says that they are the solution, for gum disease and bone loss. I only hope you agree, many thanks.

Is It Possible To Cause Serious Nerve Damage With Dental Implants?

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013
Q.

Kings College London Dental college has warned that dental implants could damage the nerve with serious consequences. What is your opinion on the risk involved in this type of dentistry?

I have one tooth missing and am considering a dental implant however I wish to establish the amount of risk to the nerve in view of this report.

I also would like to have some idea of the cost involved in this kind of treatment. I have already have a full head X-ray by the dentist who extracted my tooth. She said I would not need bone augmentation or sinus lift to her knowledge but she advised me to seek a dentist practising in implants.

Thank you for any information you can supply.
