Is It Possible To Have Dental Implants After Valve Surgery?

Monday, February 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark

I would like to  know if after undergoing surgery for an Aiortic valve replacement in 2007,  Would it be possible to have tooth implants fitted? ( it would perhaps be six implants altogether in all )
I am currently taking warfarin to keep my blood thin due to a mechanical valve being fitted.

Please let me know if these implants would be possible, and if not what would you say is the best solution to my problems?

Kind regards in advance for any advice you may have on this matter.

How Frequently Should My Daughter’s Unerupted Tooth Be Pulled Down After Surgery?

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013
Q.

Hi my daughter who is 10 years old has an issue with her teeth. After going to see a dentist, we discovered that the the case is basically that her central incisor maxillary never erupted. When I got told about ti I was quite worried but I was assured the correct treatment plan could be put into place. When they did x-rays it showed up as being really really high, they put an expander in her mouth but that did not help so she had a surgery for her unerupted central maxillary, her gum was open and they placed a brace on the tooth, closed the gum and attached with a chain to the braces wired. How frequently should the Orthodontics specialists pull the chain to bring to tooth down?

Thanks.

Should my son have upper lip frenulum surgery on the NHS if possible or privately?

Monday, November 26th, 2012
Q.

Hi, My son is 8 and half. He has attached upper lip frenulum. He was referred to university hospital by dentist to have surgery 6 months ago. Hospital refused & said it’s a dental chair job or leave it until he’s 10 or older. The gap between his adult teeth has closed naturally but his dentist insists he needs op as gap will open up. The dentist is not willing to do it himself. He has referred us again to hospital but I think they will again turn us away. Do you advise us to go private and have laser surgery? How much does this cost as I was hoping the NHS would solve the problem. Any advise very much appreciated. Thanks.

I don’t want to go through any surgical procedures, can orthodontic treatment help me?

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012
Q.

Hi, I was wondering if you could help me? I am 41 and have a very slight underbite. When I bite,my upper and lower teeth align on top of each other unlike, ‘normal’ people where the lower teeth will be behind. I am not able to push my lower jaw back for my teeth to go behind. Is it possible to correct this slight underbite by using braces or any other method that does not involve surgery. I have set aside a budget of £10K to correct this underbite but would prefer not to go through the surgical method.

What are the long term effects of a sinus lift?

Thursday, August 18th, 2011
Q.

What type of long term effects can/should be expected with a sinus lift? I am looking at getting 6 implants in my top jaw (3 right side & 3 left) & was informed by my dentist today that I would have to have a sinus lift in order to accomplish this. I’m not worried about the surgury itself, but I am concerned if there are any long term affects to my sinus or possibly even tear ducts. I already have seasonal allergies and usually plenty of sinus pressure all year long.

My daughter needs specialist treatment, are you able to recommend anyone?

Thursday, July 28th, 2011
Q.

Hello,
Our 12 week old daughter was treated for tongue tie at Kings hospital last week (under her tongue), and we think she may also have a labial frenum under her top lip in at the front that is getting in the way of her flanging her top lip and latching on to breastfeed properly. However this is not treatable at Kings (nor anywhere on the NHS as I understand it). Also we are wondering if it is left untreated it may lead to her requiring orthodontic treatment later on. I have been told that if left this piece of skin gets thicker and is a bigger issue to remedy later on. Is this a surgery that you would recommend for this age? Is it a simple procedure? Can you give a guide as to cost? Thank you

Can you recommend a cosmetic clinic in London?

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011
Q.

Dear Sir,
I am looking for a specialist clinic in London to deal with my problem.
I have a repeated cyst on the root of one of my front tooth. In the past I already had over 4 operations on my front teeth to remove cysts that kept appearing. Thus there is not much root tissue left. I have crowns on all 4 front teeth.
Recently I’ve seen a dentist in my home country who advised me that to remove this new big cyst the whole tooth have to be removed together with the cyst. After that an implant has to be inserted and new crowns made. This will be a procedure in several stages.
I permanently live in London and want to get another advice and possible treatment here. My problem will involve a specialist surgeon and a good cosmetic dentist. It has to be in one clinic.
Can you please advise me where I can get help. I want the best possible treatment.
Many thanks
