Should I Consider Hybrid Dentures?

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I have been assessed for implants and have been informed that due to significant bone loss I am only suitable for “clip on” dentures which require small implants. My first choice would have been implant supported full round bridges. They did not mention or offer hybrid dentures which I understand can be fitted in a day and do not depend on jaw bone density or having bone graft/augmentation. Is this something you would recommend I should consider? Thank you.

Should I Get Endodontic and Prosthodontic Treatment?

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015
Q.

My front central incisors are big and protruding and rest of my teeth are aligned and straight. My orthodontic asked me to go to a prosthodontist and an endodontist for my two teeth. I am concerned how it will go inward and sharpen up. I am more concerned about the procedure. Moreover, endodontics means my tooth will be dead after etc. I am also concerned about the life of a prosthetic cap. Please help, shall I go for it? What do you call this treatment, is it porcelain veneers? What is the cost of that? What is the durability and precautions? Please help, thanks.

I Have Had My Back Teeth Removed. Would A Valplast Denture Be A Suitable Option Or Do I Need Teeth To Hold It In Place?

Monday, October 27th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I need your help or advice. I have had all my back teeth removed on the left side of my mouth and I had a partial denture fitted today, would I be able to have valpast denture though as I have no back teeth to hold it in place. I do not like the feeling of this bulky plastic in my mouth and I’m gagging when I try to talk. I would like to try this other flexible treatment but I am unsure if I need other teeth the same side to hold it in for me. Thank you in advance for your reply.

My Partner Is Finding Her Top Denture Uncomfortable To Wear. Is There Such A Thing As A ‘Top Self Denture’?

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. My partner has top dentures (all except one canine tooth). She has a thing about them and it is making her very self conscious and they are making her very sensitive and unhappy. I think she would be better with a top set that are top of the market so to speak, is there such a thing? She is too young to be going through this, she does have her bottom teeth, but she had a gum problem which is why she has top dentures. Please can you help us? Regards.

I’ve Lost My Dentures And Need A New Set Quickly. Could I Get Same Day Teeth?

Monday, October 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I’ve had a full set of dentures for over a year and I’ve stupidly lost them. I would like to know how soon could I get a knew set and how long it would take for them to get made? How much do they cost? I’m in a need of a quick solution and I’ve read that you can get same day dentures? I’ve no problems with my gums or mouth, would it be possible to get same day dentures? I’m hoping to get the dentures fitted quickly. Thank you so much for your help.

How Can I Get My New Dentures Filed Down To My Liking?

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I’ve had full dentures for 17 years and have now got a new pair of dentures. The fitting is good but I feel the top plate teeth are too big or long and the bottom plate has some sharp teeth which means I bite the inside of my lips quite a lot and is very frustrating. Can these be filed down to my liking? The bottom plate is good but I feel it moves quite a lot when I eat, yawn or swallow. I have been back to my dentist to talk to her about this and she did file them down, but after 3 days of trying them again they still feel the same. Can you advise me on what I should do?

I’ve Spent A Lot On Dental Surgery And Now My Veneers Are Beginning To Chip. Why Is This Happening?

Thursday, November 28th, 2013
Q.

After an accident with a horse my teeth were pushed back. I had a hard acrylic mouth guard that the dentist inserted to try to get them to re-root & after a yr I lost it & the teeth started getting sensitive. I had 5 root canals. After talking to many people my father decided we needed to do all 6 front teeth & 6 lower ones so that my teeth weren’t different colours. We decided on dental works because they were the only 1’s that would do all top 6 at once then bottom at once so that they were all from same batch so they would all match. They told us they would do top crowns bottom veneers. A few months the veneers began chipping. I was getting upset & spoke w/a few hygienists where they informed me they should have never put veneers on the bottom. 3 yrs has past, they informed me when I talked w/them about them chipping that I would have to pay out of pocket for them to fix issues as they don’t come w/a warranty. Last month a whole sliver of my top front crown come off. Again they said I would have to pay. At this point I decided I would not pay them & go to a different practice. My appointment is n 3 weeks. Yesterday a whole veneer fell off. I contacted them and started explaining all the issues & that after only 3 years my teeth are falling apart. The dentist that did it was no longer with them. They have agreed to see me and see what we can do. I have a feeling they will only put the veneer back on for free. (It fell off in 1 piece which I still have) I am just wanting feed back on if this is normal and acceptable. Why others have said veneers should not go on the bottom. This has just been awful. We’ve spent $18,000, less than 4 yrs later they are falling apart.

I am looking for an experienced prosthodontist in the Central London area, can you recommend anyone?

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012
Q.

Hello there Dr Hughes. I am currently looking for an experienced prosthedontist in central London for my octagenarian mother who suffers from enormous problems with her teeth. She has an upper denture which has split recently and had a new one made which doesn’t fit correctly. This in turn causes her a lot of pain & distress and she really needs some assistance. Do you think you qualify under her requirements? or can you suggest any practices that I can turn to on her behalf? Thank you in advance from myself and my mother.

I’ve been told I have gum disease and the tooth where my bridge is has become loose. What can I do?

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012
Q.

Due to an eye tooth never appearing I had a bridge approx 15 years ago. My dentist has today told me I have gum disease and the tooth that my bridge is fixed on is loose and will in time drop out! Great news as I have been having regular check ups every six months for as long as I can remember and this is the first time there has been a problem.

Would I be able to have an implant with a bridge and if so, how much would it be?
