How is Cosmetic Dental Insurance Different to Normal Dental Insurance?

Monday, October 17th, 2016
Q.

Hey there, I’m just enquiring on how cosmetic dental insurance is different to normal dental insurance.
I’m going to need implants soon due to having gum disease and I’m too anxious, If I had to wear dentures and would be too embarrassed. I regret not looking after my teeth well enough when I was younger but I was never encouraged too! If I had the money I’d have implants on all my teeth, as my back ones went quite bad when I was pregnant. I also built up a huge fear of dentists as I wasn’t encouraged to go, but I have started to and had a couple of fillings done. I want a perfect smile, but financially I can’t and it gets me down so much! Thank you and kind regards.

Can Anyone Be Sedated and How Much Does it Cost?

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015
Q.

Hi, I’m a very nervous patient looking to be sedated so work can be done. It’s been many years since I’ve been to a dentist for this reason (I’ve had bad experiences) but now I’m in pain. I think I need a good few fillings and one tooth is broken really badly. I also have a wisdom tooth coming up which hasn’t got a lot of room. Can anyone be sedated and what is the price? I feel this is my only option as I am so scared. Many thanks.

How Can I Overcome My Phobia to Get the Treatment I Need?

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015
Q.

Hello I am 52 and have several problem teeth, either with cavities or broken. I have already lost 3 teeth and have been told another will have to come out. My mouth is constantly in pain from rotting teeth and bad gums. The problem is though, I am scared to death of dentists, last time I had anaesthetic I had a mini stroke in the chair and ended up in hospital. I am thinking I would like a new set of teeth, preferably implants, but know while my gums are the way they are, this is becoming less of a possibility. In the end the problem is so big, I am just taking pain killers constantly and hiding from the problem. What should I do?

As a Nervous Patient, How Can I Get My Front Tooth Repaired?

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015
Q.

Hi! I have a huge fear of the dentist due to having several heavy handed dentists when I was a lot younger who didn’t address my fear at al, which has caused me not to visit a dentist for around 4 years. I am 22, and have very weak enamel on my teeth. I do try to maintain a healthy diet, however I have suffered from re-flux in the past which I believe has caused an increase in the decay in my teeth. My front tooth weakened and chipped 4 years ago and I was told I may need root canal treatment. However at first I was given a filling and I was too scared to go back after this, and since then my back teeth are suffering. My teeth would often break off slowly which has resulted in my losing 2 lower teeth and one upper on the right hand side and one lower one upper on left. This is very frightening for me and I’ve found it so hard to visit a dentist due to my fear. I desperately want my front tooth repaired as it is becoming thinner all the time. I also am having difficulty eating due to my back teeth. Is there anything that will resolve these underlying issues? I’m terrified of a dentist saying there’s nothing they can do and I eventually lose all my teeth. Thank you.

What Alternatives Are There for False Teeth?

Thursday, February 5th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I have lost all my top teeth along with my confidence. I would be okay with false teeth but is there a more realistic option such as dental implants? Also, I feel ashamed of my situation and would like to know the best way to approach it. I also have a huge fear of dentists and needles etc. This stems from being a child and treated poorly by a dentist who removed healthy teeth for no reason and performed other unnecessary work.

What are my Options for Broken and Damaged Teeth?

Monday, November 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I had a major problem in my younger days, as I had a fear of the dentist.  This led me to actually not take proper care of my gums, and as a result a few of my teeth have fallen out. Most of my teeth have been damaged/broken from high impact sports that I used to do such as MMA, American football etc.  My question is, what are my options? My teeth now need to be replaced at the front, and the back teeth that are damaged and loose from impact injury. Also, how much is likely to cost me if I were to be referred to a private dentist? I’m starting a company and will be looking to finance this as I need to look presentable.

I Don’t Want NHS Dentures. What’s the Best Option for Me?

Monday, November 24th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark, I have lost many of my teeth due to a fear of dentists. Many of my teeth have broken and my bottom teeth are starting to fall out. When I run my tongue across my teeth I can feel holes. As for the teeth on my left side, some seem OK and I know dentists wont remove healthy teeth. I have heard horrid tales about how dentists remove broken teeth which makes my fear even worse. My cheeks are starting to sink in and I do get a lot of pain. I would like to have a lovely smile again and laugh but when I do, the thought of anyone seeing inside my mouth totally embarrasses me. My problem just seems to be getting worse. I don’t want NHS dentures, I would like some that blend in with my gums and look as natural as can be. I don’t want to drop them in a glass at night. Have you any ideas for me? Thanks.

My Oral Health Has Deteriorated and Caused Gap In My Smile. Would Six Month Smiles Orthodontic Treatment Help?

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello,
the reason I e-mailed you today is because I would like to ask you some specific questions regarding the gaps in my teeth.

My teeth were always decent however in recent years (especially the last six years) my oral health deteriorated. The conditions of my teeth were always in my mind but I was too ashamed to visit a dentist (or orthodontic). It has now come to the point where it is affecting my everyday life and I can't ignore it.

Altogether I have 10 gaps (four upper and six lower), formerly it was seven but the other three developed because I made use of gap teeth elastic bands which have brought no benefits. My largest teeth gap is approximately 0.35 cm large, four of them are 0.2 cm big and the rest are easily fixable.

I had a look through the website and came across '6-Month Smiles: orthodontic treatment in six months' and was wondering if you would recommend me this option. In addition I also wanted to ask you if you were able to give me an estimation of long this procedure may take.

Thank you.

I’ve Never Been To The Dentist And I Have A Gap Between Front Teeth. Would I Need Braces Or A Dental Implant For This?

Thursday, September 25th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, I would like your assistance. I have space between my teeth plus two teeth that never moved in line so it looks like I have a huge space there.
I need to know if I would need a dental implant for this or if I can fix my teeth just with braces? Also I have this broken tooth that looks really bad. I am very scared to see a dentist and have never been for a treatment earlier. I need to know how much time I can have all this fixed and how much will cost me? Thank you.
