I am a 33 year old girl and I’m currently missing my bottom back teeth due to a calcium deficiency, and my top two front teeth were punched out due to domestic violence. I am really self conscious as your teeth shape your face and my face looks withdrawn and my other teeth are falling out due to my gums shrinking. Can you please advise me on what I can do thank you very much. I think I’d need dental implants to fix these issues is that right.

I Have Lost Teeth At The Front From Root Resoption And Suffer From Dry Mouth. Can I Get Dentures Or Implants?Tuesday, January 7th, 2014
Dr. Bohara, I have seen several dentists with no help. I have lost teeth in the front due to root resorption, and I now need a root canal on another front tooth. I suffer with dry mouth and halitosis and when ask about dentures I am laughed at and told they won’t pull my teeth. This has affecting my life terribly and I don’t have the money to continually put in my teeth and it isn’t helping. Can you please advise me what needs to be done?
Hi Dr Bohara. I’m a 23 years old and I’m also currently a student in university. I have a lot of overcrowding which has caused my teeth to become very crooked, I’ve seen my dentist and he said my teeth are in good condition but to get a great smile I’d need some teeth removed and braces. Would I get them discounted or for free since I’m a student? My oral situation is really depressing me, I never smile in photos and I’m extremely self conscious about my teeth. I hope you can help me with this matter. Thank you.
I Have A Loose Back Tooth Which When I Chew Hurts Sometimes. Should I Replace It With Mini Implants?Tuesday, November 26th, 2013
I have recently had dentures fitted after a cardiac arrest last year. The bridge was broken and my dentist advised me to have dentures put in. As it was my 5 top teeth, I agreed, and this is okay but I doesn’t quite sit properly. Also using adhesive, I find I choke with it and it I find it very uncomfortable. I did some research and I noticed the mini implant and I need some advice and technical expertise, How much do you think a mini implant would cost for my top dentures? And I also have a loose back tooth, not painful but it can be when I chew sometimes. Can I have it removed if the tooth is okay, and can I have a Nimitz transplant? Thank you, I hope you can help me.
Hi Dr Bohara,
My dentist has told me that my tooth loss is due to the fact that my jaw bone is not strong enough to hold on to them. He suggests that it is hereditary as I do brush and bottle brush regularly. I have lost all of my incisors on the lower left and one tooth on the lower right with another tooth on the ‘wobble’ already. I have tried to wear a partial denture in the cavity on the lower left, but it lifts if I smile! It also makes me feel sickly. Can you tell me if there is a solution to this?
Many thanks for any advice you can give.
Hello Dr Bohara. I have a front tooth missing and I’ve wanted to know how much it will cost to have treatment to close the gap.
I was born like that without the tooth and for cosmetic reasons I was thinking of filing that gap in as it is starting to bother me. Do you know also know whether it is a good idea to do this and if I was to get this treatment and fill the gap how long can the implanted tooth take before it gets loose as I am thirty years old and worry that I may have to pay for a new one.
Thank you. I really hope to hear from you soon and maybe also to make an appointment for the procedure.
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.
I Have A Protruding Tooth That Makes Me Self Conscious When I Smile. Is It Safe To Remove? What Can Be Done To Help?Wednesday, August 14th, 2013
Hello Doctor, I am a 38-year-old female who has one protruding upper incisor that grew before I lost my milk teeth. The rest of my teeth are fine. I had tried wearing braces once several years ago, but the separators the orthodontist used to create gaps between my teeth didn’t work. There isn’t much space between my teeth, and they are otherwise quite strong. I don’t really want to have the protruding incisor extracted because I feel all my teeth will become loose, however, I still want to make my upper row of teeth uniform because I am very-self-conscious when I smile. The protruding tooth does not create problems with closing my mouth, but I’d still like to fix it. Please can you advise me on what kind of treatment is best for me, where I could get it done and how much it would cost? Thank you.
Hi, I am 21 year old female and I have always had gappy teeth for as long as i can remember, and because of this i spend most of my time trying to hide them.I rarely have them on show or smile in pictures. It has been a problem for years and I feel as I am getting older it is preventing me from doing a lot I things. I was wondering if this is something which generally has to be paid for in full or something which the the NHS could help with? I never received any braces as a youngster as they were never given to me as an option and I’m desperate to sort them out now, I’m getting older and just want a nice smile. I’m not asking for much am I? Thank you for your time, I really hope you can suggest something for me.
Hello Dr Kalpesh Bohara I was wondering if you could help me with an issue I have had for some time, I had fixed braces put in when I 13 years old I am know 23 I got these from an NHS surgery, I wore a retainer for a year then, a fixed brace for a year. My first four top teeth have returned to the way they were before I had the fixed brace. This frustrated me no end as I now feel like all of the treatment before was a complete waste of time. My confidence has gone right down, what would be the best thing for me to do? I’m on exception at the moment due to having a baby so wouldn’t be able to afford the huge costs. Any assistance that you could provide would be helpful. Thank you.
