I Have A Loose Front Tooth. Would A Cosmetic Dentist Be Able To Give Me A Bridge Instead Of A False Tooth?

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have a question for you that I hope you can help me with. I have a bridge on the right front part of my mouth. The false tooth on the bridge is next to my big front tooth. Now I have a loose front tooth on the left side of my mouth next to my big left tooth. My NHS dentist said I cannot have another bridge and would have to have a false tooth instead. This is something which I really don’t want. What I want to know is: would a cosmetic dentist be able to give me a bridge instead of a false tooth? Thank you for taking the time to read this.

My Dentist Recommends Braces For Me But I’m Unsure. What Other Treatment Should I Consider?

Friday, November 29th, 2013
Q.

In the upper front of my mouth, I have a very bad overbite with a very large gap in the middle. My gap looks like I have a tooth missing but I don’t it is just a large gap. The two teeth on both sides of the gap are the overbite. Will I be able to get a partial, I can not afford implants, What do you recommend? I am a female middle age and I am not comfortable smiling. Is it too late to make the repairs needed. I can not afford dental implants. I know I will have to have the two front teeth removed. Is it normal to have a gap this large? My dentist recommends braces, I do not want to go that route, one of my front teeth is loose and I don’t think braces is the answer.

I Am About To Lose A Tooth Transplant I Had Fitted Twenty Seven Years Ago, I Have Gaps In My Teeth Also, What Kind Of Costs Am I Looking At?

Thursday, October 10th, 2013
Q.

Hell Dr Patel, I hope you can help me out. How much would you say it costs to get a bridge? I have previously had root canal treatment for a crown but I am missing the tooth next door to it. I also have a loose tooth on the other side. I am embarrassed to smile because I have a gap in the front of my teeth and now I have gaps in the side of my mouth starting to appear and this is distressing me. I have been told that I have bone shrinkage on the right hand side and that’s why I am about to lose my tooth which was a tooth transplant which I had twenty seven years ago. Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer me.

Six Month After My Braces Treatment My Tooth Has Gone Noticeably Grey. What Should I Do?

Friday, September 13th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I’d like to tell the problem I have recently really been struggling with. I am Thirty-Nine and had fastbraces for six months last year with elastics from top to bottom. During treatment I had to stop wearing the elastics on one tooth which was not wired down to the others as I was in agony with the tooth being pulled up and out. I told the dentist at the time and he said it would settle back down. Now six months after treatment which was otherwise successful this tooth is noticeably grey – I really don’t know what I should do? – I have totally healthy teeth otherwise, Thank you, I really hope you can help me sort this problem out.

I Recovered A Tooth Playing Rugby. I’m Worried It Will Fall Out When I Eat, Do I Need Treatment?

Friday, August 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi, I had my tooth knocked out playing a rugby match two years ago. I managed to save the tooth and they put it back in with a brace for six weeks. I haven’t suffered with any problems up until now however, as it has now come loose and it is making it hard for me to chew and eat my food. What are the possible treatment solutions open to me? I’m worried and scared that it may fall out at any moment, and it’s changed the way I sound when I talk. I am also worried about the possible costs that could occur due to my financial restrictions. So I’d like to know the costs? Can you help me with my enquiries? Thanks.

My baby tooth is coming loose and there isn’t an adult tooth underneath it.

Monday, July 11th, 2011
Q.

I was born without a canine adult tooth and my baby one is coming very loose now i’m nineteen. Soon i’ll have to get a replacement, I was wondering how expensive this would be and is there anything that covers not being born without an adult tooth?? My parents think it’ll cost thousands and refuse to pay for it and I cant afford the implant myself. I’ve read abit about bridges too but it says they wouldnt help prevent bone loss. What would be the best thing for me to do?

Can my brother claim cosmetic services off the NHS for poor dental treatment?

Monday, May 16th, 2011
Q.

My Brother is in need of a dental implannt in one of his front teeth due to an accident he had 10 years ago where he feel and broke his tooth, countless attempt have been made to save the tooth and a root canal was performed a few years agao. He recently went to the dentist to have a post put in with a porcelin tooth attatched however when the dentist used air to dry the area the air when through his tooth and through the root canal that had not closed and his lip and cheek swelled instantaneously. He is now told that there is an infection and his tooth will fall out. Due the incorrect root canal procedure are we liable for a free or discounted price from the NHS for a private implant treatment and if necessary bone graft treatment. Any advice on this matter will be greatly appreciated.

I have damaged my tooth a while ago and it is still sensitive, can I get brace treatment?

Thursday, May 12th, 2011
Q.

Hi I would like to ask your advice on my up and coming orthodontic treatment which is to correct my underbite. The problem is that I recently suffered trauma to my teeth which subsequently left my central incisor loose.
I am scheduled for the fitting procedure in May which will be a year on from the trauma took place.
My tooth is still sensitive and tender and I am anxious that it is to soon to have braces fitted. I am afraid the tooth will die.
The orthodontist has not taken any individual x-rays and has told me if the tooth is going to die it will die anyway.
What is your opinion on my situation?
