I have lost a tooth but do not have the finances for an implant, will a denture work just as well?

Monday, August 22nd, 2011
Q.

Hi,
A couple of days ago I had a molar removed from my bottom jaw (2nd from the back on the left) due to it being rather damaged. Having already briefly discussed options with my dentist, I am aware that a dental implant would be my best option (as the teeth on either side are perfectly healthy). However, I face the problem that I am a student so for the minute £2000+ is a little out of my price range. Having been made aware that the neighbouring teeth can move around and the tooth above may move down, I was wondering if a single denture may be sufficient as a temporary option to stop any movement occurring until financially an implant is a viable option. Also, once the molar was extracted, my dentist commented on how long and curved the roots of the tooth were. I was wondering if this may have an impact on the possibility of having an implant fitted or may pose any complications?

I am 23 years old and would like cosmetic treatment for baby teeth. Is this possible?

Thursday, May 12th, 2011
Q.

Dear Doctor Sunita Verma. My question: I am a 23 years old university student from Glasgow. I have not lost my baby tooth (central incisor!!) and it doesn’t have any roots and it’s quite strong as well! But I was wondering to go through some cosmetic surgery as there’s a gap there.
I would really appreciate if you could help and write me your personal opinion on this as my dentist recommended to not to get rid of if as long as it’s strong.

Kind Regards and best wishes.

I had a decayed tooth but the root remains, what should I do?

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011
Q.

Dear Dr Julian Caplan

I�d really appreciate your advice. What do you recommend me to do next?
Because of badly decay(due to being badly filled before), I got my moral tooth removed on lower jaw, not completely the dentist couldn�t remove the roots, do I need complete root removal?
It�s so sad to hear that absence of one tooth can cause serious problems.

What do you advise me to do to fill the empty place of the removed tooth? Can it really result in serious things.

Looking forward to your reply.

I am still in pain after having a tooth extracted – why is this?

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011
Q.

I have had a tooth extracted, and have been in constant pain, my question is I have a cap at the back, is it possible that although the tooth is dead, there could still be a nerve that you can not see ? and if there is can it be operated on without loosing it.
Thanks.

Thursday, January 6th, 2011
Q.

Hi,
Thank you for responding to a previous question of mine.
I was wondering if you are able to provide gum grafting treatment and if so, if you could advise me of an estimate cost for this to cover root exposure I have on two lower front teeth.
Thank you very much

What is the red bump that causes me pain between my teeth?

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011
Q.

I just recently had two fillings. Before the two fillings I went to my dentist for a small, almost indetectible red bump on my gums between my teeth,( one of the teeth with the cavity) it had been hurting on and off. My dentist told me that its nothing and that the cavity in that tooth is so small that it wouldn’t affect the root. After getting the filling, I still have some pain and the red bump, I went in again, they took xrays and said everything is fine. What would be causing pain when I bite down or chew food? Also, why would I have a red bump?

Would you recommend a metal plate for longer term use?

Friday, December 3rd, 2010
Q.

I have been advised by my dentist that I need to have 3 teeth extracted because of root problems. It may be that a 4th tooth could also be extracted. I already have ab acrylic plate for 1 tooth which needs daily fixing. I am told that I can have a metal based plate or stick to acrylic plate. I understand the metal plate is stronger but more difficult to add teeth and hence the rationale for taking out the extra tooth. Is the metal plate more likely to stay in place. I understand there is a significant price difference. What would you recommend

Would a bridge be suitable for a tooth that is fractured and another that is deeply filled?

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010
Q.

I am a 53 year old female. Have always taken great care of my teeth. Over recent years have been treated by my dentist and hygienist for receding gums. Visited my dentist yesterday with what I though was just a crack in one of my old fillings, only to be told that the tooth was actually fractured vertically. It is in my upper jaw and third from the back. I have a wide smile and it will definitely show if I have it removed. My dentist advised that it may last for a year, (he drilled out the old filling and repacked it)
He was less than helpful about my options and I left the surgery confused and shocked. My question is would I be better off having an implant or a bridge to replace the gap. One of the teeth that would be needed to support the bridge is deeply filled. Also a guide to how much this would cost would be useful.
Thank you very much for your time.
