How Much Would It Cost to Get Dental Implants Through the NHS?

Friday, September 12th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Huges. I am looking into getting all my teeth pulled out and have screw-in teeth or dental implants to replace them. I have had cancer and since then I have finished my chemotherapy and now I have had nothing but problems with my teeth, I brush them two times a day every day and they just keep rotting. I am in pain most the time, and I just want to get it sorted now. I currently don’t work so would have to go through the NHS as I couldn’t pay for private treatment. If you could tell me how much it will cost and how long the wait would be. I would be very grateful. Many thanks for your time.

My Teeth are Very Small and Weak. What is the Best Treatment for Me?

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014
Q.

Good afternoon Dr Gambroudes, please give me some advice. I have very small teeth, they are very weak and brittle. They are also discoloured. Also, I have an overbite and gaps between all my teeth. What treatment would fix my teeth? And how much would it cost roughly? Also, if I need to wear braces, which ones would I need? You see, my current dentist said I cannot wear traditional metal braces due to my teeth being so weak, so it could damage them. Would crowns or veneers cover my overbite and give me bigger teeth with no gaps between them? I really need help as my teeth are my biggest insecurity and flaw. Thank you in advance.

Can I Get Braces or Veneers on the NHS?

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I am currently on income support, so am unable to afford private dental treatment. I’ve had major mental health problems due to issues I’ve had with my teeth and the way they look. I suffer from depression and major anxiety as a result of the state of my teeth. The way they look is so upsetting to me and it plays on my mind every day, I feel as though I can’t go to social events because people will stare at me. Would I be able to get braces or veneers on the NHS due to the mental health impact on my life? I never go out due to people looking aand judging me based on my teeth. Thank you.

I’m Insecure About My Teeth. Can You Offer Any Advice?

Friday, September 5th, 2014
Q.

Hey Dr Hughes. I have really horrible teeth that make me feel very self-conscious. The ones next to my front teeth stick out and it’s irritated me for years. My dentist made a mistake with previous treatment and tried to charge me a lot of money to fix them, which I couldn’t afford at the time as I was only young. The appearance of my teeth makes me feel very insecure and I dream about having the perfect smile so I can feel more confident in myself. Is there any way I could be able to get some help or guidance in the right direction?
Thank you so much, I hope you can give me some advice.

My Veneer Has Fallen Off On The First Day. I’m At A Loss. Could You Help Me?

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014
Q.

Hiya,
I’ve only had veneers for one day and already one has fell out. I rang my dentist and was instructed to put it back on with clear nail polish.
Although I have done this I am still very worried it will fall off. I am not eating hardly anything due to this. I am very worried the other veneers will fall off soon as I feel the glue is disappearing. I am not sure if this me just thinking this up in my head or it is actually happening.
Is there anything I can do to make me feel more secure with my veneers? What foods do you recommend I should eat, as I am at a loss? Please could you help. Thanks.

I Am Unhappy With My Temporary Bridge That I Have To Wear For Six Months. Can You Tell Me What To Do?

Thursday, July 24th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus. I got temporary bridges this year for upper and lower. I am very unhappy as the colour is really yellow and do not match my teeth, the metal shows on my upper and bottom teeth. I do not want to even smile with them in my mouth. I asked four different times when I would get my permanent teeth and now I’m being told six months. They did not clean my teeth before they pulled my others ones and when I ask when they are going to clean my teeth I was told it would cost me and extra £1,500. I want to know where I can go and get my teeth done the way they are supposed to be. I would to hear from you over any advice you could possibly give. Thank you.

My Periodontal Disease Is Now Under Control. Which Treatment Will Make The Large Black Triangles Less Apparent?

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark, I have black triangles across my front upper teeth (incisors/canines) due to periodontal bone loss, some of them are large and noticeable when I smile. My periodontal disease is now being treated and is currently stable. Is cosmetic bonding a possible solution for making these black triangles less apparent? Are there any other methods for filling black triangles? Is there anything that can be done? Thank you for your time.

I’ve Been Told That I Have To Get Used To My Bulky Crown. Could You Tell Me If This Is Correct Or Not?

Monday, June 16th, 2014
Q.

Good evening Dr Hughes. I hope you can help me determine whether I’ve had bad dental treatment or not? About 3 months ago I’ve had a crown placed on my upper front tooth. The temporary crown was fantastic and matched it well, unfortunately the permanent one is noticeably larger than the other teeth and it sticks out. My dentist told me it’s because my teeth are crowded and that I’ll get used to it.
I really disagree with him and have tried to get used to it but to no avail. Is it possible for me to send a picture to you to see if my dentist is trying to cover up bad dental work please? Many thanks.

My Jaw Keeps Clicking And Is Worse In The Morning. Any Ideas On What This Could Be And How To Fix It?

Friday, June 13th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I have arthritis in my jaw but have not been seen or treated by a doctor. My jaw always clicks and is usually worse in the mornings (possibly grinding my teeth when I sleep). Today my jaw is very painful on the right side and it is getting worse as the day goes on. My bite has suddenly changed this evening and won’t go back. Any ideas what this could be and how to fix it? Or where to start with getting treated? Thank you.

Will The NHS Pay For My Dental Implants?

Monday, March 31st, 2014
Q.

Hello there, wondering if you can help me out a little with a difficult problem. I have just had 2 top right back teeth out and 2 bottom right teeth took out and I was told buy my dentist that I cannot wear dentures as I suffer from very bad epilepsy. I have suffered from this all of my life and have been told that the denture route is unsafe in case I have a seizure and swallow or choke on them. Every time I have a seizure I am badly damaging my tongue too, ripping it really badly through the gaps which are now present in my mouth from the missing teeth. The only way I can think of resolving this situation is to get implants. Will the NHS pay for me to have implants in this case do you think?
