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.

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’m 60 years old and just received my second set of dentures. My question is: The top denture feels like the suction should be better than it is, once they are made can they add to the back (length) so that the suction would be better? They look like they could stand to be a little longer in the back. With my previous set (top) when they were first made, the suction was great but I lost weight and they became loose and would drop down.With this new set, the top just doesn’t have the suction I feel it should. Thank you so much.
I am on income support and the family I brought up, who I put first, and are now grown up. I feel it’s my time to take care of myself, however I have neglected myself. My teeth have worn me down with supporting my children and have taken a knock.
I so want my confidence back but I earn very little as the grandchildren take up most of my earnings.
Can you please recommend a way I can afford treatment without going into debt please? I have some false teeth and they are ill-fitting, although I have had them fitted through the national health service.
My dream is to feel free from taking my dentures out each night as it’s not a nice feeling. I would appreciate any information you can give me to make me smile with confidence. Kind regards.
My partial dentures are ground down badly – I grind my teeth. Can the metal and plastic make me sick? I have developed GERD and AFib recently. These conditions came upon me suddenly, along with a lot of tension. I feel run-down and tired all the time. How should I clean my partial dentures? My insurance won’t give me new partial dentures until next year. Do you think they might make an exception if they see how ground down they are?
Dear Dr Moore, I was wondering if you could advise me on how my wife can become a guinea pig to help have her teeth fixed. 2 years ago my wife had to have many teeth out due to bad dentistry. She was fitted with a denture for top and bottom but had problems with ulcers, this was put down as being a bad fitting plate. My wife had a second lot done and still ends up being very sore and ulcerated, also they have affected her remaining teeth due to being ill fitting again. My wife has since been back to her NHS dentist, explained to them the issues she’s having only to be told yet more teeth may have to be removed and that she maybe allergic to the dentures and that if that the case there’s nothing more they can do. My wife is only 44 and very conscious of her mouth. We were always going for meals and nights out but now she makes excuses to hide herself away, she gets upset if she can’t eat a meal due to having no chewing teeth and her gums being too sore. I am on disability myself with my wife being my carer, my wife will do anything to meet my needs and I myself would love to be able to meet hers, I would love to see her smile a full smile again. I hope you can advise me, kind regards.
I wear NHS partial dentures but I find when I talk I sound weird and people cannot understand me very well, they say I’m swallowing my words. Because of this, I only wear my dentures occasionally. I have heard of flexible dentures being more natural. If I wear them would my speech be normal like my usual voice, or would I have the same problem? Also, because my speech sounds funny to me and others I always feel self conscious of getting into any conversations. I am not into implants as I am terrified of the dentist as it is and also I’m going to be 65 yrs old soon and I would rather save what little money I have towards my retirement.
Can full dentures be produced using the iTero for someone who already has a full set of dentures? All I see on various websites is the Wand being used on patients who have their own natural teeth. I am desperate for new dentures but can’t face having the traditional method of impressions as last time I had them done I almost choked and it has put me off completely. I look forward to your reply. Thank you.
