I cannot afford to pay for my grandaughter’s dental treatment, what can we do?

Monday, July 5th, 2010
Q.
Hi, I am 83. I cannot help my grandaughter financially. is there help under the NHS for her please. Her teeth have worn down to gum level. Fear, has stopped her all these years from trying to get help to stop the problem. The roots are strong but the surface broke away years ago on her teeth. she has no confidence,She walks around with her hand across her mouth. She cannot eat properly, cannot get a job. She has lost her children through domestic problems and is homeless. She needs to make a fresh start, but her teeth must come first to give her self pride, and confidence, also she need to give nice white smiles once again. She would get work then. Is there help out there please. I am worried sick. Thanks you for giving us your time (I heard that dental training hospitals do implants for free with trainee dentists, Is this true please). she is 36 years old and looks much older,,

I have relatively large front teeth and considering cosmetic treatment.

Monday, December 7th, 2009
Q.
I haven’t been visited te dentist for a while now, but haven’t expereinced anything major with my teeth. The only thing concerning me with my teeth are the way they look. My front two teeth are quite large, but the only look large as the next set of teeth are small. I’m 20 now but it feels as though my front 4 teeth going bent especially mt 2 ‘small’ teeth. i feel so paranoid as i smile alot. I now find my smile to be more smaller and tighter. I’m not sure if braces is a good option although i would like straight teeth all over (my bottom teeth are not too straight either. I’m not keen on braces and i know the pricing to correct my teeth will not be cheap or even a ‘little affrordable’. I’ve haerd about Invisalign. I’m quite interested. However i’m also interested in something that will sort out the problem with my 2 ‘small’ teeth, so that they are equal to the rest of my teeth. Is there something that i could have for the small set of teeth, that won’t damage my own teeth and will last me for a long time?

Need to get back my smile from a history of dental problems.

Friday, December 4th, 2009
Q.
Hi, i am 28 an have had problems with my teeth for years i have advanced gum disease and have recently had 2 taken out at the front on each side so when i smile it doesnt look very nice also the majority of my bottom teeth are wobbly, they are discoloured some crooked and i hate them. My family has a history of dental problems my grandfather,2 aunts an uncle all had their teeth removed before the age of thirty. I would like to have mine removed but dont know how to go about it or what to even ask for. Money is an issue i am a single parent but am so unhappy with my teeth an always embarrased when i laugh or smile and it is affecting my life. I have however considered long term payment plans which would suit if i you can do that with cosmetic dentistry?. My aunt says she has plates but they dont cover the whole roof of her mouth an fit into her gums and look really natural can you tell me what this is and cost etc. I am considering travelling abroad to get something done as my dentist is very unhelpful, i am looking for some help and guidance please….please help me.

Need a dental treatment to smile better from what I have now

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009
Q.
Hi Dr Solanki, I have a narrow tooth to the left of my front teeth and to the left of that tooth I have a fang tooth which I really hate the appearance and feeling of, it is positioned a bit higher than my other teeth and when my mouth is closed if you press along my mouth you can clearly feel a difference there, also when smiling it does not look good. I love to smile but past few years I smile alot less with my mouth open, it does affect me and in general most of my teeth need fixing eg; straightened, some reshaped to look even and whitened. I was wondering what could be done to help with my upper left fang tooth so it looks normal and also for all my teeth to be straight, even and white? I would prefer not to have braces. Hope you can make some sense of what I am asking for here and also any general pricing to give me an idea would be great. Many Thanks.

Teeth problems have severely affected my confidence

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009
Q.
I’m 17(nearly 18) but I’m still in full time education (colledge). My teeth severly affect my confidence, I never smile in photos, I have 2 chipped front teeth from rough play as a child and still have 4 worn down baby teeth where my adult teeth haven’t grown through and according to an x ray aren’t there. Is it possible to get vineers/crowns on the NHS?

The replaced crown has not changed my cosmetic appearance

Monday, November 9th, 2009
Q.
Hi Dr Moore My dentist recently fitted a new (procera inceram) crown for me to replace an old crown. It is my big front incisor on the top. He has done a good job with the shape and colour but I can still see a blue line at the margn. My natural smile shows my gum line and the main reason I asked for a new crown was that several friends got crowns that seem to be like real teeth and have subgingival margins. When I asked my dentist for a new crown I made it clear money was not a consideration and that cosmetic appearance was my priority regardless of cost. But on fitting my new crown it is most definitely at least half a mil short of my gums and not much of an improvement over my last crown. Should I sack the dentist I have had since a child on the grounds he is a dinosaur. or should I quietly go behind his back?
