Can A Person with Epilepsy Have Dental Implants?

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015
Q.

Hello. My dad is epileptic and we wanted to know if he can have the screw-in teeth? His teeth are very bad and he has gum disease and some teeth missing. He is very concerned about his teeth and his grandchildren always point it out to him. Is there anything that can be done? It is through no fault of his own as he brushes and flosses his teeth twice a day. It is really getting him down, there must be something that can be done surly?

I Have Had Many Teeth Removed. How Can I Get My Smile Back?

Friday, June 12th, 2015
Q.

Hello my question today is to ask about implants. Since a young age I have had epilepsy, I’m now 43 and growing up was difficult because of my fits. During said fits I would bite down hard to the point where my teeth would break and chip. Most wre taken out because of this. Adulthood was the same. I wear a plate now and most of my adult teeth are gone. My epilepsy is under control to a degree and not as bad as it was. Is there any treatment for me to have my smile back? It has impacted every area of my life and having a smile would change my life. Many thanks.

I’ve Had Epilepsy The Last 12 Years And My Teeth Have Fallen Out. Would I Get Implants On The NHS Due To My Condition?

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014
Q.

Hi. I have been on medication for epilepsy for the past 12 years. Over the years my medication as changed to cope with my epilepsy but this has caused my teeth to go bad and fall out. I am a 34 year old man with 3 children and it’s getting to the point where my kids don’t want to be seen outside with me. I have been offered dentures but I am scared that if I have them put in and the dentures are loose that I could choke. When the doctor told me I had epilepsy, all my dreams and all the hard work disappeared. Do you know whether the NHS would provide me with implants due to my condition?

Will The NHS Pay For My Dental Implants?

Monday, March 31st, 2014
Q.

Hello there, wondering if you can help me out a little with a difficult problem. I have just had 2 top right back teeth out and 2 bottom right teeth took out and I was told buy my dentist that I cannot wear dentures as I suffer from very bad epilepsy. I have suffered from this all of my life and have been told that the denture route is unsafe in case I have a seizure and swallow or choke on them. Every time I have a seizure I am badly damaging my tongue too, ripping it really badly through the gaps which are now present in my mouth from the missing teeth. The only way I can think of resolving this situation is to get implants. Will the NHS pay for me to have implants in this case do you think?

I Suffer From Epilepsy And The Medication Has Ruined My Teeth, What Can I Do?

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi, I suffer from a number of medical conditions, including epilepsy. Due to lots of medication over a lot of years and side effects. My hair, skin and teeth have suffered. My teeth are crooked, but due to illnesses and medications they have also become very weak. I have lost one tooth already. I have no confidence left due to these illnesses and haven’t visited the dentist in a while because of this. I hate my teeth and speak to people and laugh with my hand over my mouth as I am so self conscious about my teeth. I am a single parent who due to these awful illnesses is unable to work. Is there anyway I can get my teeth sorted on the NHS? I’m desperate for help and I just don’t want them getting worse than they already are. Thank you for your kind advice in advance.

Is it true that because I am epileptic I cannot receive teeth whitening treatment?

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, having considered having a procedure to whiten my teeth done professionally I should like to know is teeth whitening contra-indicated for all people with epilepsy, under all circumstances? I don’t seem to be able to find enough information on why this might be. Is it just with certain anti epileptic medication? Or say to do with photo sensitivity? I would be very grateful if you could provide some clarity in this matter, as I would dearly love to have my teeth professionally whitened but obviously I don’t want to put my health at risk. Thanks in anticipation.
