What Can You Tell Me About Dental Implants?

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016
Q.

I am quite worried about how many teeth I have lost. I am about to loose 3 more according to my dentist. My history is that many years ago I was the victim of an abusive boyfriend. I was hit so hard that I lost 2 teeth instantly. I then wore a transparent brace and then I had a bridge. I think over the years my teeth have been very weak. I would like some info on dental implants. This has affected my confidence immensely. I would welcome your thoughts.

Can I Get a Broken Bridge Fixed?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016
Q.

Hi Andrew, I wanted to ask you if I am able to fix an upper bridge that is broken. The dentist that made it for me 10 years ago has closed now and he has gone back to Africa where he was from. My bridge is 6 teeth in total and I have had screws on both sides. Now the bridge is broken in the middle on upper two front teeth (the one that was missing) and I have been using it with Fixodent now for the past two months. I still have the roots of 4 teeth, two in both sides where my previous dentist took the nerves out and screwed through to put the new bridge in. Words can not explain it how difficult is to live day to day. I do not have much money to fix it and the dentist that I am registered with at the moment is useless and he does not want to fix it. Can you please help? Looking forward to hearing from you.

Where Can I Get Prosthetic Teeth?

Thursday, December 10th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I cannot get registered with a dentist and haven’t for several years. I have no teeth and I need to have some false ones but I can’t seem to find a dentist to help me. Please, you are my last resort. How can I get some false teeth?  I have tried everywhere in Shrewsbury but no one is taking on new patients. I cant eat my favourite foods because I cant chew things like steak or liver or pork chops, I feel like crying.

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?

How Can I Improve My Smile, And How Much Will It Cost?

Monday, August 17th, 2015
Q.

I have 5 top teeth, there’s two in the middle,1 to the left and two to the right, and on the bottom I have 8,  four at either side of the middle. All the teeth at the back are broken or missing due to lack of care over the years. I am embarrassed and talk carefully as not to open my mouth, which causes me to mumble as I don’t pronounce my words properly. I only smile with a closed mouth and have never had a real ‘show your teeth smile’. I hate not doing it due to the embarrassment caused. People see me as miserable as I don’t smile.What options do I have and what sort of costs are involved?

Can The NHS Replace My Missing Teeth with Implants?

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015
Q.

Hi. I had my 3 front teeth smashed from my mouth in a violent assault. I am currently unemployed, will the NHS replace them with implants? Why they were removed still remains a mystery as the roots were all whole and secure just the fronts of the teeth were sheared off, so I need to know if I can have them replaced with implants before the bone starts to degenerate. They were removed a few years ago and I cannot stand to smile anymore as I had a gap for a few years but now my dentist sacrificed two other teeth to make a bridge. I can tell it won’t last longer than a year, two if I am lucky, they aren’t in very well and look like horse teeth with no attempt to match the teeth I have. It was a violent attack with a baseball bat that scarred me mentally as well as physically and now what the dentist has done as a professional care giver to me seems more like abuse. Please tell me if I can have them all replaced with implants on the NHS.

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.

Is It Possible to Get Treatment from Students?

Thursday, June 11th, 2015
Q.

I saw you on this morning and thought you came across as approachable and the work you had done was amazing. I could not afford this treatment but wondered if you knew of anywhere where you could go as a patient for students. I have missing teeth and it really depresses me. I had breast surgery some years ago which has left me with a deformity but doesn’t bother me anywhere as much as my teeth. All I can get with the NHS is a very ill fitting denture but now it’s got where I don’t have any confidence at all. The denture is forever falling out and the plate just makes me gag. Most of my lower back teeth are missing. I had a school dentist many years ago who removed four and two of these never were replaced with adult teeth. I feel like my face is now sinking and wasting away.

How Can I Restore my Missing Teeth?

Monday, March 30th, 2015
Q.

Many years ago when I had my first child I lost a lot of teeth whilst I was pregnant, it didn’t matter how much milk I drank and healthy food I ate, and had to have a plate fitted. Then 16 years later it happened again.I lack confidence in a very big way. Can you please tell what I can do? I was referred many years ago for implants but I got scared and didn’t get it done on the NHS back then. My dentist said in time I’m going to loss the front one. Please can you help to advise me on what I can do? Thank you.

What Options Do I Have to Fully Restore My Smile?

Monday, March 30th, 2015
Q.

Due to a number of years suffering with depression I have neglected my teeth about as badly as you can imagine. I have very few teeth left as the rest are either removed or just rotten to the gum line and look horrific. now I’m at the stage where I can’t open mouth smile, and my eating options have become incredibly limited. I fortunately have always worked but I am now in a career where I have to work with people all day every day and I’m finding it too difficult to hide the issue. It’s making my job very difficult to do and facing people and family is become very awkward. I understand that my most realistic option is dentures. As I’m not such a high flyer I can’t afford implants at this stage, but I can’t allow this issue to continue. What are my realistic options? I’m very nervous and mortified to see a dentist though I know I’ll have to. I am terrified of the cost as I, like many others, do not have  high amounts of expendable income. Any help or directional advice would be greatly appreciated by myself and my family. Thank you, regards.
