Could I Have Veneers on my Front Teeth?

Monday, October 17th, 2016
Q.

Will it be possible to have veneers for my front teeth? I have gum disease problem, lost bone in my jaw and have lost a few teeth so my dentist from the NHS made dentures on the top side of my jaw. It feels weird, I have speech problem and I feel so depressed and not confident. I asked him if at one stage I can have implant, but he said no because I lost bone in my jaw. I am unhappy. How much will it cost me? Thank you.

Do Flexible Braces Cause Speech Problems?

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016
Q.

I wear NHS partial dentures but I find when I talk I sound weird and people cannot understand me very well, they say I’m swallowing my words. Because of this, I only wear my dentures occasionally. I have heard of flexible dentures being more natural. If I wear them would my speech be normal like my usual voice, or would I have the same problem? Also, because my speech sounds funny to me and others I always feel self conscious of getting into any conversations. I am not into implants as I am terrified of the dentist as it is and also I’m going to be 65 yrs old soon and I would rather save what little money I have towards my retirement.

Can I Get Dentures on the NHS?

Friday, May 8th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I have a full set of dentures top and bottom. As a result I do not leave my house, I have tried lots of false teeth but I have a cross bite and I have always had trouble keeping them in as they are so painful. Can I have them done on the NHS? I lost some of my teeth 20 years ago or more so I know that I would need a bone implant but I am disabled so I have not got any money to pay for them. I have only had my bottom teeth out for a few years. That is when I stopped going out as they are so painful.   Many thanks.

Dental Implants Are Financially Out Of My Reach. Is There Any Way I Can Get My Smile Back?

Friday, June 20th, 2014
Q.

I Am 45 years of age and I lost a lot of my teeth through neglect. So I decided to have a mass extraction of about 18 teeth in one go under general anaesthetic through the NHS. I was then given a set of dentures from the NHS. The only time I wear them is when I go to the supermarket twice a week. I have spoken to my dentist about implants but they are financially out of my reach. I have read about your teaching position with the Royal College of Surgeons and I was just wondering if you are looking for potential patients to demonstrate your technique? Thank you.

Would A Private Dentist Provide Me With A Well-Matched Set Of Partial Dentures? I’m Not Sure About My NHS Dentures.

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. My dentist tells me that NHS partial (2 front teeth) denture faux gums only come in one colour.
My old NHS dentures matched my gum colour.
He keeps telling me that my new dentures should look like my own teeth “should” look.
I have already paid for these teeth though I haven’t yet accepted them.
Should I ‘lose’ my fee and invest in private? Would a private dental technician be able to provide a well-matched set of partial dentures? I no longer care whether they fit well or not. I want the dentures to be unnoticeable to other people. My friends are amazed that all my teeth are not my own.

Most Of My Teeth Fell Out Through Smoking. Is There Any Way I Could Get The 4 In A Day Treatment Through The NHS?

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I used to smoke. I stopped around 7 years ago but most of my teeth have fallen out due to it. I went by my local NHS dentist and he extracted a few teeth, primarily the ones which had decayed. He suggested that I should try dentures, but I am really struggling with dentures and I cannot eat or talk with it. I have had them changed 4 times now. And now my back teeth are now falling out as well. Was looking into the 4 in a day procedure. Can my dentist recommend that on NHS?
If so, how do I go about it? I look forward to your reply. Thanks.

How Much Would A Partial Denture Of 4 Teeth Cost Me?

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. How much is a partial denture of 4 teeth and how much would total treatment cost me? I have not seen a dentist for over 10 years and am very nervous. If I had further teeth extracted could I have dentures fitted the same day to avoid embarrassment. My only real problem is my top teeth as they are coming loose and I have a few crowns. I am 56 years old and need assurance that I can afford the treatment before proceeding. I look forward to your advice regarding this situation.
