I have been offered the All-on-4 treatment for £5500 as I have no teeth in the upper jaw. It is in the UK in Luton. Is this a good price and can this practice do it for the said price? I also only have 4 teeth in the lower jaw.The remaining teeth are not that good but they are strong. Could you please give me your expert advice on the cheapest way to restore my whole mouth? I am even willing to let postgraduate students to do some of the work if it would help both parties to achieve their full potential. Thanks.

Hi. I have had all my teeth taken out on the NHS, except one wisdom tooth. The reason they were removed was my bone/gums were receding. I have been left with hardly any bridge to hold lower dentures, but my dentist has used a clip to hold the one remaining tooth. This is okay whilst it’s in but there’s going too be problems when I lose it. Both my top and bottom dentures are so uncomfortable, and my face shape has changed an awful lot.
Is there anything that can be done?
I had an all-on-four procedure done almost two years ago now. The dentist has had me in for repeated try-ins of the final denture but it doesn’t look right. The upper denture makes me look like I have a sunken in appearance with no teeth showing. It makes me look old and toothless. Can you tell me why, and what might correct this? The dentist is a really nice guy but I’m really embarrassed by my appearance. They also have a lot more material on them than I was expecting. I was shown a completely different denture that fit against my gums without all the extra acrylic in my mouth. Help please!
I have quite an extensive medical history including severe SLE and Antiphospholipid Syndrome as well as other ailments. I have always had problems with my teeth and gums. I have receding gums and tooth loss. I have a pronounced top jaw and had fixed braces which were removed because of the SLE when I was 13, and I’m now 30.
Recently, I had aortic heart valve replacement surgery. I’m worried my declining tooth health is going to have a major impact on the heart and need advice on what to do next. I would like to possibly look into the teeth in a day option but I’m worried about the cost. Is there help available for someone with such health problems? I work full time when I’m well enough but can’t seem to do more to be able to save enough money. I obviously take a lot of medication and blood thinners. My teeth are a major source of problems for me and I’ve noticed more recently a trigger for a little depression due to comments from people due to their appearance.
I’m desperate for any help you can provide.
Hello Dr Hughes. I have extremely bad teeth because of drug abuse and from never looking after them properly in the past. There are more fillings than there is enamel now, and I also have seven crowns. I am not in any pain or discomfort or anything like that and I have been looking after my mouth properly now that I am drug- and alcohol- free. Would it be possible for me to have all of my teeth extracted and get All On 4 done on the same day, or would I have to wait for the gums to heal before a dentist could start the All On 4? Thank you for your time, I hope you can answer my question.
Hello Mark. I hope you can help me, I’ve been looking at the various treatments available to me online and I would like an estimate for an ‘All on 4’ dental implant, if this is something you offer? If not, could you please refer me to a practice which does? I would like a full quote please with no hidden charges. Thank you for your time, I look forward to your reply.
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 have chronic periodontal disease and bone loss, and wonder if I can I have the all-on-6 implants, will they last or will they fail because of my problems and is it true once teeth are removed, so will the gum disease be removed? What problems can arise with the implants, how often do you have them removed for cleaning? Can you still get abscess with implants as I do with my teeth now, and is it the type of implant that makes them suitable for people like myself? Everyone says that they are the solution, for gum disease and bone loss. I only hope you agree, many thanks.
Hello Dr Bohara, I hope you can help with me with my enquiry. I have had two estimates for the all-on-4 implants for my upper jaw. One clinic has quoted me £12000 for the all-on-4 and another has quoted the same price but he says he wants to do All-on-6. I am confused as to which is best is the best option. The all-on-4 guy said I didn’t need any more than four implants to be successful but the All-on-6 guy said he likes to place six and this makes me confused. Both clinics seemed professional enough and they only do implants. Can you help or advise me about a clinic near Liverpool or Manchester? I don’t need a bone graft. I am finding this to be a bit of a nightmare. Thank you I hope you can help.
Is there a all on 4 method where the teeth are fixed after implants are fitted and you don’t have to have teeth replaced after six months?
the reason for this is that I am in Australia at the moment and could not wait for six months. In Australia the dental surgeons will do the implant surgery and put the teeth in within a few days, complete.
But as we are coming to England for a visit we are trying to see if the cost are lower. Hope that you are able to inform me further and help me make the right decision.
