Can I Have Dental Work Done at a Dentistry School?

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016
Q.

Dear Dr Andrew Moore,

I am 26 years of age and moved from Scotland to London to try and better my life. I struggle with depression and anxiety which doesn’t help this matter.

I don’t have or make a lot of money and am trying to save in London. It’s impossible. The problem is, my UL3 has no root and is a black tooth which was covered with an NHS veneer, which has now split and come off. My UL1, UL2, UR1, UR2 have been extracted and replaced with a denture (along with UL4 UR4 AND UR6) which doesn’t fit. So I can’t eat with it in. My UR3 is the only tooth that hasn’t had any work done to it, this also includes both my wisdom teeth UR7 and UL7. The rest of my upper teeth have either root canal or really big fillings and you can hardly see any tooth.

This has caused me to loose weight due the fear of my teeth breaking when I eat and I have stopped socialising with people and have missed days at work also. I’m left with no confidence whatsoever! The worst thing about it is, I have always taken care of my teeth and flossed, brushed and used mouthwash but the decay is so bad! I lack calcium, always have. I gave my mum pyorrhoea of the mouth while I was in the womb.

I can no longer live like this and it’s so expensive to correct and I don’t want a denture for my whole upper mouth. I have heard of many people going to dental schools to get the work done for free. I’m lost and don’t have any clue of what my options are. All I have done is cry all day and not left the house.

Is there any advice or help you can offer me?

Warmest regards,


dr andrew moore

What is the Cheapest Way to Restore my Whole Mouth?

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016
Q.

I have been offered the All-on-4 treatment for £5500 as I have no teeth in the upper jaw. It is in the UK in Luton. Is this a good price and can this practice do it for the said price? I also only have 4 teeth in the lower jaw.The remaining teeth are not that good but they are strong. Could you please give me your expert advice on the cheapest way to restore my whole mouth? I am even willing to let postgraduate students to do some of the work if it would help both parties to achieve their full potential. Thanks.

Should I Have to Pay Extra for a New Veneer Wax-Up?

Thursday, April 9th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I had my temporary veneers put on and they are not to want I wanted, or as I discussed in the consultation. I was told I need to pay another £300 for a new wax-up does this seem right? I feel like they just want more money out of me and have not listened to what I wanted at the first 2 appointments. I feel rushed and thought the whole idea of wax-up was to get it right, not pay an extra £300 when they should have listened to me in first place.

Should I Go Abroad for Cheaper Dental Treatment?

Thursday, March 19th, 2015
Q.

Hi there. I’m thinking of going to India or Korea for possible implant dental work. Is it possible to get All-On-4 work done there? Do you think I am taking a risk? Are the dentists there as qualified as every time you speak to a UK dentist? They always make you feel that the work would be vastly inferior (though they don’t actually come out and say it) if you should go any where other than the UK. I am so confused as I feel that dentists in the UK actually charge prices that are so expensive, and I cannot see why. I am so confused and the whole thing is getting me down with the conflicting points of view. I really would appreciate your expertise and opinion. P.S. Are you also very expensive? As I would prefer not to travel abroad, but the high prices of dentists in the UK leave me little choice.

How Much Would It Cost for 5 Teeth on a Bridge?

Thursday, March 5th, 2015
Q.

How much does it cost for 5 teeth on a bridge please? For the top three at the front and two at the side? I have been to the dentist and they’re too dear so I’m just getting different quotes. Could you get back to me please? Thanks. It’s important because I’m going away in May for two weeks and I can’t smile. I need them doing. I’ve been looking everywhere on different sites and need to get them done as soon as possible. My other teeth are all fine, it’s just these ones that need work.

I Would Like To Know Which Material Is Best For Making Dental Crowns? How Much Does This Cost?

Monday, September 29th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I would like your advice. I want to know the best material with regards to dental crowns. What price should I be looking at? I am currently undergoing dental treatment in hospital and I need a crown? I would like to know what material you use so I can tell my dentist. It’s difficult being from another country to know what works best and where to obtain these materials. Thank you in advance for your reply.

I Was Unable To Wear My Retainer During Military Training, And My Teeth Moved Back. How Much Will It Be To Fix?

Thursday, September 11th, 2014
Q.

Hi, Dr Hughes. I wore braces for two years, then had them taken off, and started wearing retainers until I went to basic military training. I had to take off my retainers because you are not allowed to wear them in basic military training. I had only worn them for six months before I went, and then after basic military training my teeth had kind of moved back or got jacked up a little. How much would it cost me to get them straightened with braces again? I’m pretty sure there’s not that much work needed on it and it should only take six months or less? I hope you can answer my query for me. Thanks in advance.

I Don’t Know What To Do Now That My Root Canal Treatment Has Failed. Should I Opt For A Dental Implant?

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014
Q.

I had root canal treatment on one of my back teeth about 8 years ago and it’s now failed. I now need to consider whether to go for a re-root, or to have the tooth out and get an implant. I’m struggling with what to do. The cost of the implant my dentist has advised me it will be in the region of £2.5k and a re-root, which may not have a great success rate for a long period, will be around £1300 with new crown etc. In your experience, is it better to go for an implant? Are there any other alternatives? Also, in the past, I’ve had a lot of work done to my teeth – should I be looking at dental insurance plans now, as I’ve spent £1000’s in the last 10 years.

I Need A Dental Implant Which I Would Like To Be Gold Or Platinum. Do You Know Roughly How Much This Would Cost?

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I am looking to have some sort of cosmetic dental implant or something on my lower left teeth. It is the first big tooth from the front. I would probably like gold or maybe a platinum tooth depending on the cost. So if you could quote me for these it would be appreciated? Also if it’s possible for a diamond to be added again depending on cost I am not sure which to have done. Maybe also I would have the lot cleaned so they look white again. Any information would be great. Thank you for your time.
