Are Bridges a Suitable Alternative to Dental Implants?

Monday, July 20th, 2015
Q.

Good afternoon. I would like to improve the appearance of my teeth. I have a missing tooth at the back of my mouth on the right hand side and a crown next to it. The crown broke a year ago but the dentist was able to mend it back together.

I would like to replace the crown and replace the missing tooth with two bridges.

I’m not able to afford implants so wondered if bridges were a suitable alternative to implants?

Thank you.

Why Are My Teeth Growing Now?

Thursday, March 26th, 2015
Q.

Sir, I am 28 years old. One of the teeth at last corner right side of my upper jaw was missing. It had not grown from my childhood but the lower jaw teeth just below it are growing steadily. It doesn’t give me any pain but I feel surprised that there’s growth. Why won’t these teeth stop growing? What are the causes of tooth growth? Will this cause any problems in the future? If it is a problem, how can it be stopped, or are there any treatments for me?

Could I Have a Veneer Put in to Replace a Missing Tooth?

Monday, September 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hello and good morning, Dr Hughes. I have a missing tooth next to my front teeth on the left side of my mouth, but on the right side there is still a tooth present. The left side bothers me because the tooth is missing and hasn’t come through, so the tooth next to it has moved over to fill the gap. Would it be possible for me to have a veneer put in place where the missing tooth should be so that both sides are the same, as it really bothers me when I smile because it looks uneven. It is not that obvious to other people, but I myself am really aware of it and it prevents me from smiling. Thank you.

I Have An Impacted Canine Tooth. I Would Rather The Gap Caused By This To Be Closed Using A Dental Implant. Is This Possible?

Thursday, August 28th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I would really like your advice. I’m 16 and have an impacted canine tooth, my baby tooth is still there but it’s starting to get a pink tint at the top and I’m sure that’s going to be a problem and will need to come out. I don’t wanna consider the exposure of the tooth and braces option, I would much rather leave the impacted tooth in and get an implant or bridge to replace the empty space. I was wondering if this is possible and if not what are other options I have without braces? Thank you for your time.

Other Than A Bridge, What Are The Best Treatment Options For A Missing Tooth?

Friday, June 27th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I hope you can help me out. I have one upper canine missing, I would like to know how much would it cost me to fill the gap?
I don’t like the bridge options available because I don’t want the dentist to file the tooth down next to it. Could you please tell me about any other options available and the prices/costs available? It really bugs me as it’s really noticeable whenever I try to smile. Thank you for taking the time to respond.

I Don’t Want The Gap Left By An Impacted Tooth Any More. What Are My Options?

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I would like some information and advice to help me out. I have a tooth, which, when I was younger that grew across the roof of my mouth. This was removed at a young age, when I was thirteen years old. Since then, the tooth next to my front two has spread into the gap. I would like to get this changed so it looks like 2 teeth. What are my options? I don’t want to have a gap any more. The tooth removed was the 2nd one after my front two and the one that’s next to my front 2 (top) has now in the middle of the gap showing a gap either side. Thank you in advance for your help, I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi. My Question Is: Can I Get My Regular Dentist To Fit A Dental Implant?

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. I have a question for you. I have a front tooth that is missing and I really need to get this fixed. There’s another tooth that is also loose and that is about to come out as well. My question is: how much does screw a tooth cost and can a regular dentist do this? How does this work? What I mean is, do I need to have a certain problem other than a missing tooth? Also do you put a person to sleep for this or just use shots to numb the gum area to do the screw in tooth. Any other information you can provide me with would be great. Thank you.

Hi Mark, I Would Like To Straighten My Teeth Without Visible Braces. Any Advice Would Be Appreciated?

Friday, November 1st, 2013
Q.

Hi Mark,
I am missing my UR2 tooth (since birth) and have a bridge connected to the UR3. It was also connected to the UR1 but that wing was removed by a dentist in May. Since then my UR1 has moved forwards and to the left and my UL1 has moved inwards and to the left as a result.
I would like to know about an implant/bridge for the UR2 and some way to straighten my teeth especially the front two now they have moved. But I don’t want visible braces, but Invisalign or similar is okay though.
Thank you, any advice would be appreciated.

I Want Straight And Attractive Teeth, What Is The Best Option For Me?

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013
Q.

Hi there, Dr Shaffie. I have had to google the names of each tooth so please bare with me haha. Basically, my upper right lateral incisor grew in behind the front row and so I had it removed, but now both my upper central incisor, left lateral incisor and both canine teeth are all crooked. My question is what would be my best option here and at what price would you estimate? Basically I would like to end up with 6 upper front teeth (including the tooth that was removed) looking straight and attractive as possible, thank you. I really hope you can get back to me.

My Daughter Has Been Suffering With Bulimia And She Needs Help As She Doesn’t Want Dentures. What Can Be Done?

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013
Q.

Hello can you please help?
My daughter has big problems with her teeth after suffering with bulimia over several years. We are trying to find a sympathetic person to help her and so far with the dentists in our region (North Wales) they have not been particularly helpful. We are not a well off family but I have offered to help her try and find somebody who is willing to look at her ~ her present dentist has suggested dentures, she is only 34 and I feel this person doesn’t really care much. She has just lost a front tooth and is absolutely mortified about it and I feel so sorry as she is a beautiful girl. Please can someone help to put the smile back on my lovely daughters face without us having to take out a mortgage to do it? With thanks.
