Would it be Possible to Have an Implant to Replace a Broken Crown?

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My crown (second from middle) recently became loose. My dentist removed it and stuck it temporarily, but it came out the next day. About ten years ago my crown broke off and the then dentist replaced it by putting a post into the tooth, and this has now apparently broken. My current dentist has told me that he now cannot drill into my root and crown and so I need to consider having the root out and a bridge put in, or would it be possible to have an implant? The root seems to be OK from what I can see, it’s not loose. I don’t understand why the dentist cannot put in another post. Can you make any suggestions please?

How Much Would It Cost to Get Dental Implants Through the NHS?

Friday, September 12th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Huges. I am looking into getting all my teeth pulled out and have screw-in teeth or dental implants to replace them. I have had cancer and since then I have finished my chemotherapy and now I have had nothing but problems with my teeth, I brush them two times a day every day and they just keep rotting. I am in pain most the time, and I just want to get it sorted now. I currently don’t work so would have to go through the NHS as I couldn’t pay for private treatment. If you could tell me how much it will cost and how long the wait would be. I would be very grateful. Many thanks for your time.

Are Dental Implants Available on the NHS?

Thursday, September 11th, 2014
Q.

Dear sir, 

Six months ago I was ‘jumped’ by two people. Among the injuries sustained where two healthy front teeth knocked clean out. Since the assault, I have eventually had a partial denture fitted. I have already nearly swallowed them twice, I have difficulty eating with them in and have lost over a stone in weight. I really cannot deal with them. I have tried Polygrip etc. but this makes the situation worse. I am currently on ESA since the incident as I’m unable to work due to other injuries. Am I able to be treated for implants on the NHS? I have very little money. If so, how would I go about getting referred? Your advise would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

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 Have An Impacted Tooth On The Upper Left Side. Can This Be Easily Removed? I May Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed Also.

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes, I have an impacted tooth on the left side on my upper gums. My wisdom teeth have also not been removed yet. I don’t know if that has had an impact on the way they have to be removed. I want to get this extra tooth removed as soon as possible. I also haven’t had a dentist appointment in a while. I have heard from some that it is not possible but I have also heard that it is possible. I am undecided I need to ask someone who actually knows what they are talking about. Can this easily be removed?

I Had Root Canal Treatment Two Years Ago But My Tooth Has Now Cracked. I’d Like To Know The Advantages Of Each Treatment Method?

Thursday, August 28th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I had root canal treatment two years ago but my tooth has now cracked, it’s the furthest back molar. Does it need to be replaced with an implant or can it just be removed? I am interested to know what are the advantages of each treatment method? Would just having the tooth removed cause any problems in the future?
There does not seem to be any
infection and the bone is good but the crack means that the tooth moves and is uncomfortable each time I put any pressure on it so trying not to eat on it.

Many thanks.

I Have An Impacted Canine Tooth. I Would Rather The Gap Caused By This To Be Closed Using A Dental Implant. Is This Possible?

Thursday, August 28th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I would really like your advice. I’m 16 and have an impacted canine tooth, my baby tooth is still there but it’s starting to get a pink tint at the top and I’m sure that’s going to be a problem and will need to come out. I don’t wanna consider the exposure of the tooth and braces option, I would much rather leave the impacted tooth in and get an implant or bridge to replace the empty space. I was wondering if this is possible and if not what are other options I have without braces? Thank you for your time.

I Have A False Tooth With A Screw Which Has Fallen Out. Is There Any Type Of Dental Glue I Can Use To Keep It In Place?

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have a false tooth with a screw that just came out, but I pushed it back in myself. Is there any form of dental glue I can use to ensure it doesn’t come out again? I don’t want to go to a dentist. I need a solution so I can do it myself. I am retired and no longer have dental insurance. My tooth is in the front of my mouth and would be very embarrassing if it came out. I would not be able to smile or feel comfortable. Thank you for your time.

I’m Thinking About Having Dental Implant Treatment In India. Which Qualification Does A Dentist Require To Undertake This?

Friday, August 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Gambroudes. I am 42 years old and I’m considering having implants and bridgework done. Is there a certain make or type of implant you would recommend that would last me at least 20 years? I am also thinking of going to India to have it done. What type of qualifications does a dentist need to undertake this treatment? Is there anywhere you could recommend and how long would the treatment take? Will a normal X-ray of my teeth be okay to send to a dentist so they can make some sort of plan? My dentist doesn’t have a cat scan or panoramic X-ray. Many thanks.

My Maryland Bridge Has Fallen Out Three Times Recently And I Would Like An Alternative Option?

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Riten. I currently have a Maryland bridge which needs replacing as it keeps coming loose. This has happened to me on three occasions now and I am not willing to have this bridge cemented back in again. I would much prefer something more permanent than this. What options are available for gaps and missing teeth and what are they likely to cost? I have dental insurance so hopefully this will cover me for any costs. Thank you for listening, I hope to hear from you soon.
