Can I Get Dental Implants Funded by the NHS?

Thursday, May 19th, 2016
Q.

Being a OAP, can anyone put a smile back on my face by offering to give me implants? I have tried false teeth but they are not good, I can’t wear them and can’t eat with them either. My gums are hurting trying to eat meat and hard things like apples or oranges or even sweets. It’s very hard to cope with this, is there any way the government can get the NHS to fund this (teeth implant) so I can get the chance to smile again?

What Can Be Done About the Gap of a Missing Tooth Whilst Waiting for an Implant?

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016
Q.

I need to have left front tooth and one to the left removed due to bone loss (I am under Eastman’s and fanatical about hygiene). However, being a wimp I am struggling with the thought of having the gap – apart from temporary plate, can you suggest ways of coping in the interim of a possible implant, i.e. how do you look in the mirror? I know they need to come out and I am all for it but I can’t get over the distress over what a two teeth gap will look like – I am not vain, but distressed and do not want to talk funny.

Can a Crown be Re-Shaped Using Veneers?

Friday, May 13th, 2016
Q.

I broke my front tooth in an accident 20 years ago. It had a metal-ceramic crown. A part of the root was also damaged, for which I had an operation to remove part of the bone from the lingual side.The new crown was very ugly shaped, different to the other tooth. Many dentists fear to remove the crown, others say to have an implant done, which I fear. Is it possible to restore the shape by means of a veneer or Lumineer? A dentist made a restoration with composite, but it is broken now, after many years.

I’ve Swallowed the Cover of my Dental Implant, Will it Cause Harm?

Monday, December 15th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. The cover for one of my dental implants came off while I was eating and I swallowed it. I am frightened it will cause damage to my stomach or intestines. What do you suggest? This is the second time it has come off, but the first time it just plopped onto my tongue while talking on phone. The dentist I use is awesome but as fate would have it, this is the weekend so the clinic is closed. I got the screws placed about one month ago on the back upper tooth on the right. I have two dental screws on the upper left back and so far have had no trouble with them. Thank you for your time.

My Crown Had To Be Cracked Out As It Seemed To Be Stuck On Something. Do You Have Any Idea What This Could Be?

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. My front tooth fell out weeks after 4 front crowns were placed. It was cemented back in a couple months ago and the same crowned tooth  felt like it was going to come out again. This time the crown felt like it was hanging on by a thread. The crown had to be cracked out in the end. I was wondering what it was stuck on, do you have any idea what it could have been? Time went by the same crown fell out again within a few months. When it fell out it had a long plastic thing inside the crown. What was that inside of my crown? It was this time that I learned the tooth had decayed and it had to be extracted. I am waiting for an implant on this tooth.

I Have Had A Maryland Bridge For 8 Years But The Bond Keeps Failing Now. What Should I Do?

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have had my Maryland bridge in for about 8 years. The bond tends to fail usually after 2 to 3 years but I always have it refitted. It normally takes about 15 to 20 minutes to refit. This would include removal of any cement from the adjacent teeth and the Maryland bridge wings. It failed again 3 weeks ago and was refitted in just 5 minutes, it failed after 5 days, refitted again and now failed after 3 days. Again only 5 minutes was spent in the chair. Can you tell me what prep is usual in refitting the Maryland? Thank you for your time.

I Have A Clean Chip In One Front Tooth Which Has Left A Huge Gap. Which Treatment Would I Need To Build It Back Up?

Monday, June 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi there Dr Moore, I have one tooth which is just right of the front in the top set which has a clean chip in it, meaning that its completely flat and is now only coming out all but millimetres, so you can see there is a tooth there but at the same time it leaves a huge gap

would this be able to be built up on or would an implant be the only option? I need something done. I’m just unaware of the different types of treatment available and I’d appreciate your advice. Thank you for your time. It would be great to hear back from you.

I Have Decay In My Roots. My Dentist Tells My It Needs To Be Extracted. Is This Correct Or Is There A Viable Alternative?

Thursday, June 26th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have sensitivity in an upper molar. My dentist X-rayed and reported decay at the junction of the roots. He said that due to the position of the decay the only remedy he could recommended was an extraction.
My gums have receded somewhat due to my age but if possible I would like to avoid extraction. Is this advice correct or is there a viable alternative? I have an implant next to this tooth and I am worried that the gap left after an extraction could lead to weakening of the implant. Thank you.

I Got Knocked Off My Bike And Fractured My Tooth. Would Treatment For This Be Available Through The NHS?

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello,
I got knocked from my bike by a car last week and have fractured upper left 2, sublimed upper left 1 and chipped upper right 1. My dentist initially advised me to leave everything for a week and constantly wear my Invisalign aligner. I have done this and returned to the dentist today. I have been told this morning that upper left 2 has a vertical fracture with exposure of the nerve and needs to be removed. I have a few questions about treatment options. I have spent a lot of money and time over the last 5 years having orthodontic treatment and don’t want to have a noticeably abnormal tooth. What would be the best treatment option for this and would there be any way of getting some funding on the NHS to help pay for treatment?
Thanks.
