Hi There. Is It Possible To Have An Implant And A Crown Put In Immediately After Extraction?

Monday, October 6th, 2014
Q.

Hi there. I have an upper premolar (24) that has undergone RCT and has been heavily restored with a composite filling. My dentist felt that a post crown was not an option as in their opinion the tooth would not be able to support it. I am considering having an implant but I am not keen on the conventional method due to the length of time that the process can take. Is it possible to have an implant plus crown put in immediately after extraction (I know that this would depend on bone density and the area being infection free etc)?
Thank you in advance!

I Can’t Bring Myself To Get Into The Habit Of Brushing. Will My Teeth Fall Out Before I’m 21?

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi there, I am 18 and I have been going to the dentist for as long as I can remember, when I was 7-10 yearS old I had all of my baby teeth removed due to an addiction to sweets as a child, after that point in time my adult teeth can through. When I as 14 I had to go to the orthodontist to have braces as my teeth were unaligned when they grew through. Ever since I was a young boy I never got into the habit of brushing my teeth, hence having at least 1 filling on each tooth which is what I have now. Even though I myself am very upset and embarrassed about my teeth I still cannot get into the habit of regularly brushing my teeth. I have recently got really bad decay and all of my tooth enamel is gone. I am especially concerned about losing all my teeth by the time I’m 21 and I seriously do not want that to happen. A few factors which need to be set are that I’m also a smoker and I know this will/can cause mouth cancer but I enjoy smoking and am not looking to quit any time soon. Is there any advice you can give me.

I Can’t Afford To Have A Bone Graft With Dental Implants. Would A Unit 4 Bridge Attached To Implants Be Less Costly?

Monday, September 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I’ve had a bridge for roughly 15 years, it was for one missing central incisor due to a accident as a child but my other central incisor which the wing is attached to is failing and needs to be extracted.  I want implants but due to bone loss I’d need a bone graft for both my two front teeth which I can’t afford as well as dental implants, could I remove both lateral incisors to get immediate implants with a 4 unit bridge to avoid bone graft? Thank you.

Over The Years I Have Lost Teeth Through Poor Oral Hygiene. Is There Anything That Can Be Done To Help Me?

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014
Q.

Hi. I’m 28 years old. In my younger days I was never made to to clean and look after my teeth. It was only until my teens that I wanted too. But by then my teeth weren’t so great. Over the years I’ve lost teeth. And now my front teeth are rotting from the gums. I’m so ashamed and embarrassed. And I feel my confidence draining away. Not even being able to smile. Even holding a conversation is getting hard as I don’t want everyone to later be talking about my teeth. Is there anything you can do to help me and put a big happy shining smile on my face please? I would be so grateful.

Could I Have All My Teeth Extracted and All On 4 Done on the Same Day?

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have extremely bad teeth because of drug abuse and from never looking after them properly in the past. There are more fillings than there is enamel now, and I also have seven crowns. I am not in any pain or discomfort or anything like that and I have been looking after my mouth properly now that I am drug- and alcohol- free. Would it be possible for me to have all of my teeth extracted and get All On 4 done on the same day, or would I have to wait for the gums to heal before a dentist could start the All On 4? Thank you for your time, I hope you can answer my question.

Is There Any Temporary Filler Treatment I Can Administer at Home?

Thursday, September 4th, 2014
Q.

Good morning Dr Hughes. I am having my bottom four front teeth pulled in five weeks’ time, and at a later date I will be having them replaced by prostheses. In the meantime, there will be a pretty obvious gap there, and  I would prefer it to be temporarily disguised. Is there any material that could be put in the gap until my new teeth are ready, and would it be possible for me to do this myself at home? I cannot afford any appointments for temporary filler as the treatment I’m already having has cost quite a lot, but I will be going a month or two without these teeth. Is there any temporary material I can put in this space so I don’t look so toothless for a few months? Thanks you.

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 Have An Abscess At A Root Which Has Developed Over A Period Of 18 Months. Would This Prevent Me From Having A Same Day Implant?

Monday, September 1st, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Gambroudes, If I was a suitable candidate in all other respects, could a same-day implant be fitted to an upper first molar which has been identified as having a failed root canal treatment and where the X-ray shows an abscess at root which may have been developing for a minimum of 18 months – The crown has been taken off by a former dentist of mine in error and I’m now left with just the bottom 4 bits of tooth just below gum line. I need this treatment ASAP as I don't really want to wait the 3 months healing time needed after extraction of the broken tooth if necessary.

I Have Had Braces In The Past And My Bottom Jaw Has Come Forward. Will This Continue To Grow Out?

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I have a problem that I hope you can help me with. I have a reverse overjet of just over 2mm and I am 20 years of age. I want to solve this but I don’t want to get braces again. What do I do? I had braces before and 2 teeth were removed from my upper row and afterwards my teeth were left straight on top rather than in front so over time my bottom jaw has grown and come over. Will this continue to grow too? Are there any other solutions to this problem? Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you.

I’ve Not Looked After My Teeth. A Couple Of Teeth Are Rotten And Wonky. Should I Have Them All Removed And Replaced?

Thursday, August 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello Marcus.

Okay so I’m in a pretty bad situation.

I’ve unfortunately not been taking care of my teeth for a number of years and due to this I have now got a couple of teeth that have worn/rotten themselves down inside my gums.
Alongside this I have pretty wonky teeth. So inside of my mouth is a disaster.

Am I correct in thinking I have 2 options. Remove the bad teeth through the NHS and then pay for a brace to straighten the rest or take them all out and get a nice shiny set of new teeth?

Part 2 of my question would be asking you how much this would cost. Am I liable to get this done for free as a 24 year old, unemployed graduate? Hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you.
