Hi there. Well here we go. I have 7 top teeth left, all crowned or filled, I have a lot of pain from the teeth and I suffer terrible neuralgia, I’d say due to my terrible teeth. I am at the moment in terrible pain and have a dentist appointment on Monday. I know they will say take it out; I have now got to the point of saying take them all out. I really fancy a full flexible plate as the plate I have is appalling – I can’t eat or speak. How much would this cost me? Would I be able to wear the flexible one as soon as mine are extracted and would they extract as well as making me the new plate?

Can you tell me if you can provide sedation, and just a ball park price for an implanted upper denture? I just want to get an idea, I understand that many issues can affect the price, but I would still like to know, thank you. I will need 5 upper teeth removed, and I also would like one implant in my lower jaw. I do have a partial upper denture at the moment, but I have found I just cannot get used to them.
The outer side of my top tooth broke just days after an inlay was put in. It has been repaired with some filling, which I was told could last for some time before I had to make a decision what to do next. This filling on the outside is becoming loose just after a few days. The solution now I suppose is a crown. But how do I find a dentist to do the job right as I lost confidence in my present dentist?
My 12 year old grandson is losing the top layer of his two front teeth. They are really yellow and is affecting his confidence. He has had some treatment at the hospital where they scrape his teeth and paint on a layer. It looks good for a couple of weeks but then deteriorates. Is there anything that can be done? His dentist said not until he is at least 16 when he could possibly have veneers. I have contacted several dentists, they have said the same thing and that it has probably stemmed from his diet as a young child. I disagreed as he had a very good diet and never until this day drinks fizzy juice.
Hi, I’m wondering if you could point me in the right direction. I’m 28 years old and I only have front teeth. They all have fillings. I suffered as a child with gum disease and never treated it. I really regret now as my face is sunken on both sides and I only have my front teeth to chew on, I’m in need of a teeth makeover but cannot afford to do this. I paid for a private denture for top and bottom but they have taken it down as much as they can. I’ts horrible, I would like implants. I am at the end of my teather, it makes me depressed and all I would like is a full mouth of teeth so I can chew like everyone else. The ones at front with fillings are all discoloured and you can tell I have fillings in front teeth by a mile off. Please, is there anything I can do or anyone that could or would be willing to give me a mouth makeover?
Please, I need help. I was diagnosed with having advanced periodontal disease when I was in my late 20s and now the bone that supports my teeth is almost nothing. I have already lost a few teeth and all my teeth are loose. I’m 52 years old but feel my life is over. My confidence has diminished, I’m depressed, I’m desperate for help or any advice you could give. I would be most grateful for help.
I am quite worried about how many teeth I have lost. I am about to loose 3 more according to my dentist. My history is that many years ago I was the victim of an abusive boyfriend. I was hit so hard that I lost 2 teeth instantly. I then wore a transparent brace and then I had a bridge. I think over the years my teeth have been very weak. I would like some info on dental implants. This has affected my confidence immensely. I would welcome your thoughts.
Hey there, I’m just enquiring on how cosmetic dental insurance is different to normal dental insurance.
I’m going to need implants soon due to having gum disease and I’m too anxious, If I had to wear dentures and would be too embarrassed. I regret not looking after my teeth well enough when I was younger but I was never encouraged too! If I had the money I’d have implants on all my teeth, as my back ones went quite bad when I was pregnant. I also built up a huge fear of dentists as I wasn’t encouraged to go, but I have started to and had a couple of fillings done. I want a perfect smile, but financially I can’t and it gets me down so much! Thank you and kind regards.
My dentist says I need a crown because my back tooth is cracked, and I have a gap between this and the next tooth where a tooth was taken out many years ago. Also he says I will need a part denture to fill the gap so there is no pressure on the tooth that is to be crowned, which I don’t really want. He said if I had a bridge he would have to shave my other teeth down, so they are all the same size. My question is: could I not just have a crown? It is so expensive to have both done. How long would a crown last on its own, or are there any other options?
I am now 22 years old. My right and bottom tooth (premolar) is decayed. It sometimes causes pain and bleeding. And it disturbs me most of the time when I’m trying to do my studies. I am thinking of removing it, but I don’t want to loose my tooth when I am too young. I have doubts about whether my tooth will grow or not if I remove it. My question is, at what age do teeth stop growing? Please, I need advice on how to take care of my tooth.
