Dr Riten, I Need Your Help With My Loose Teeth. What Can Be Done?

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Riten,

To cut a long story short, I am unfortunately suffering the consequences of a protracted period in my life where I never regularly went to the dentist. I have in recent years had some periodontal treatment to try to put some of this right, but I am still having problems. My teeth are actually in quite good shape, it’s my gums and bone loss that is the problem.

I now have some loose teeth, and my gums have receded to quite a large degree. I am also feeling discomfort when eating on one side of my mouth. This has dramatically worsened in the last twelve months.

I am now at a point where it is causing me to feel extremely self conscious, and, despite my nervousness at the thought of getting the situation rectified, I know I must.

I would love to attend the Mulberry Clinic, as I tend to be in the area during the week, and the glowing reports of the clinic are second to none. However, I do live in Taunton in Somerset, and was wondering if there may be somewhere more local to my home address that you could possibly recommend? Any advice would be extremely gratefully received.

Best regards.

Can You Give Me A Guideline For Implant Costs?

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013
Q.

Hi,

I have had a front tooth missing for about 12 years now, from an fall at university.

They tried to save it for me but it needed to be taken out, and ever since ive had a bridge with wings.

Over time the frequency of me needing to get my bridge re-cementing has increased.

I think its finally time to get an implant, but im totally blind to the costs.

I fear it could run into the £k’s having spoke to a dentist this morning as I understand you cant go through the NHS. I also need to pay £100 for the consultation. Is this normal ?

I would never have questioned it, but since I had laser eye surgery and understanding the price ranges/reductions/ haggling I was alarmed and I needed to………. I thought I best check with an expert for a guideline bracket.

Thanks

Can I Discuss An Extended Project Question On Cosmetic Dentistry With An Industry Expert?

Thursday, March 28th, 2013
Q.

Dear Sir,I am currently studying for my A-Levels at Woodhouse Sixth Form College in London. For my A-Levels I have taken biology, chemistry, psychology and math, and I am hoping to pursue a career in dentistry once I have completed my A-Levels As an extracurricular activity I have taken up an Extended Project Qualification. The EPQ provides an additional AS-Level, and can be based on any area that an individual chooses to explore. I have based my Extended Project on cosmetic dentistry, and the question I am investigating is: does the increase in cosmetic dentistry reflect todays image conscious society? I would be grateful if you could provide your opinion on this question. This would be much appreciated. Thank You Regards,
