How Much Would a Full Flexible Plate Cost Me?

Thursday, November 17th, 2016
Q.

Hi there. Well here we go. I have 7 top teeth left, all crowned or filled, I have a lot of pain from the teeth and I suffer terrible neuralgia, I’d say due to my terrible teeth. I am at the moment in terrible pain and have a dentist appointment on Monday. I know they will say take it out; I have now got to the point of saying take them all out. I really fancy a full flexible plate as the plate I have is appalling – I can’t eat or speak. How much would this cost me? Would I be able to wear the flexible one as soon as mine are extracted and would they extract as well as making me the new plate?

Do I Need to Have a Denture as Well as a Crown?

Thursday, September 29th, 2016
Q.

My dentist says I need a crown because my back tooth is cracked, and I have a gap between this and the next tooth where a tooth was taken out many years ago. Also he says I will need a part denture to fill the gap so there is no pressure on the tooth that is to be crowned, which I don’t really want. He said if I had a bridge he would have to shave my other teeth down, so they are all the same size. My question is: could I not just have a crown? It is so expensive to have both done. How long would a crown last on its own, or are there any other options?

What’s the Best Treatment for a Crown and Filling That Have Fallen Out?

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016
Q.

I am a 54 year old female and I currently wear a partial denture, which looks like my own teeth and has become loose (6 teeth missing at the front). I also had a crown to the side and a big filling towards the back (I think you call them pre-molars). Both have fallen out. The tooth that was next to the crown that has fallen out is too far gone that the dentist says it’s not worth filling because its actually dead and down to the gums. What options are available and budget-friendly? What can I expect to pay on the NHS or private?

How Can I Improve the Suction on my Dentures?

Friday, September 2nd, 2016
Q.

I’m 60 years old and just received my second set of dentures. My question is: The top denture feels like the suction should be better than it is, once they are made can they add to the back (length) so that the suction would be better? They look like they could stand to be a little longer in the back. With my previous set (top) when they were first made, the suction was great but I lost weight and they became loose and would drop down.With this new set, the top just doesn’t have the suction I feel it should. Thank you so much.

What’s the Best Way to Replace My Tooth?

Friday, August 19th, 2016
Q.

My front tooth is damaged and needs replacing. I’ve had an X-ray today to confirm and told her that I would like to think over my next procedure. I  thought that a second opinion would be best as to the best way to go. I do not want false teeth dentures fitted. I also have large gap at the front due to tooth loss (I lost this years ago). Otherwise, my teeth are in good health (fillings etc.). I am also on good general health. Can you please help?
Thank you.

Is There an Affordable Way to Replace Ill-Fitting Dentures?

Thursday, June 16th, 2016
Q.

I am on income support and the family I brought up, who I put first, and are now grown up. I feel it’s my time to take care of myself, however I have neglected myself. My teeth have worn me down with supporting my children and have taken a knock.
I so want my confidence back but I earn very little as the grandchildren take up most of my earnings.
Can you please recommend a way I can afford treatment without going into debt please? I have some false teeth and they are ill-fitting, although I have had them fitted through the national health service.
My dream is to feel free from taking my dentures out each night as it’s not a nice feeling. I would appreciate any information you can give me to make me smile with confidence. Kind regards.

Can Dentures be Produced using iTero?

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016
Q.

Can full dentures be produced using the iTero for someone who already has a full set of dentures? All I see on various websites is the Wand being used on patients who have their own natural teeth. I am desperate for new dentures but can’t face having the traditional method of impressions as last time I had them done I almost choked and it has put me off completely. I look forward to your reply. Thank you.

Is My Old Dentist Legally Obliged to Send X-Rays to My New Dentist?

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015
Q.

Hello Mark. I am a working pensioner who moved 85 miles away 5 years ago from a dentist who took over from my previously excellent dentist who retired. I continued to see this new dentist as for simple routine dental procedures he seemed OK.

Extracting a tooth recently and replacing with an additional tooth to my lower denture, costing me over £200 proved to be a disaster, causing me pain and inflammation. Any adjustments made were unsuccessful. I was unhappy with his technique, which seemed brusque and caused more pain, sticking an x-ray plate into my sore mouth and suggesting that he would need to remove the root of the tooth he’d extracted. I said I would have to think about this.

I have since seen a clinical dental technician, on recommendation, who removed the offending tooth replacing with another onto my denture immediately. Though the gum became sore slightly, it is far more comfortable and I know I can return to him for adjustment.

My 2 questions are: 1.When I find a good and experienced dentist in/near Brighton, Sussex, is my existing dentist legally obliged to send all x-rays and my dental history from his practice to my new dentist?
2. Can I insist that any dentist who I see use the clinical dental technician I found for myself as described above, although is he is even further away than 85 miles? I have confidence in him.

Sorry for this very long email and many, many thanks.

What Options do I Have to Replace my Partial Denture?

Friday, March 6th, 2015
Q.

I’ve just had an old bridge removed as it kept getting infected so I’ve now got a partial denture to replace the three missing teeth. It is already annoying me and giving me headaches. I just can’t wait to get it out of my mouth. It’s the left front tooth then the two next to it. I do have other teeth at both sides but the strain from the denture on my other front tooth is worrying me as it aches when I take the denture out. Could you advise me on what options I have and the cost?

I Have Had My Back Teeth Removed. Would A Valplast Denture Be A Suitable Option Or Do I Need Teeth To Hold It In Place?

Monday, October 27th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I need your help or advice. I have had all my back teeth removed on the left side of my mouth and I had a partial denture fitted today, would I be able to have valpast denture though as I have no back teeth to hold it in place. I do not like the feeling of this bulky plastic in my mouth and I’m gagging when I try to talk. I would like to try this other flexible treatment but I am unsure if I need other teeth the same side to hold it in for me. Thank you in advance for your reply.
