I hate my dentures, what is the cost of dental implants?

Thursday, August 18th, 2011
Q.

I have lost all of my bottom teeth and most of my uppers due to dental disease. I have had a new bottom denture made and fitted. The appearance is not as I expected it to be, nothing like my original teeth and my mouth doesn’t close in the same way it used to

The only way they will stay in is with dental glue but that is useless when eating as the whole denture comes out out, they are also ugly and not natural to the way my mouth closes.

The upper dentures need to be done soon but I am so dissappointed with the result of the bottom set, what’s the point? I can’t eat out any more, I can’t even enjoy a meal at home. Fruit, like apples, pears, even plums are completely out of the question now.

I am a pensioner, just how much will it cost to have a denture implant done. I hear so many stories, so many different prices quoted.

I can’t believe the NHS don’t help in this respect. It is not just cosmetic, teeth are for eating with after all!

I know how expensive implants can be but how much exactly, I have heard lots of prices quoted. I am a pensioner but the way I look is still important and more important still I like to eat!

What are the long term effects of a sinus lift?

Thursday, August 18th, 2011
Q.

What type of long term effects can/should be expected with a sinus lift? I am looking at getting 6 implants in my top jaw (3 right side & 3 left) & was informed by my dentist today that I would have to have a sinus lift in order to accomplish this. I’m not worried about the surgury itself, but I am concerned if there are any long term affects to my sinus or possibly even tear ducts. I already have seasonal allergies and usually plenty of sinus pressure all year long.

I just need one tooth straightened, what is my best option?

Thursday, August 18th, 2011
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, I was hoping you could give me some advice. I am a 20 year old female, and when i was 16 i had metal braces to straighten my teeth through the nhs. My orthodontist made a great job and i was very pleased with the results. However, i stupidly kept forgetting to wear my retainers and one of my lateral incisors has pushed back between my front incisor and canine. (apologies for my wording here i dont know the correct names for the teeth!) The rest of my teeth are fine but as you can imagine that one tooth is making my smile crooked! Can you help me and tell me the best way to resolve this, preferably without going through 2 years of braces again! I just want to push that tooth back out! I am willing to pay whatever it costs! Can you give me any help? Thanks.

How much would it cost to get my implants replaced?

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011
Q.

Thinking of having the whole of my top teeth replaced my implants could you give me any idea of the total cost of this or is it possible to have a few done at a time. Is there any reasons why I may not be able to have them. I have a very old bridge at the moment which I have recently had repaired but this is very temporary so I need to make a decision soon as I am unable to eat anything hard to cause it to break again which I am very worried about. Dentures are not a option for me. How long a process is it for the implants to be complete?

Regards
Jane

Are my veneers fitted correctly?

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011
Q.

Hello recently  I have just had veneers fitted  as one of my front teeth had died and had turned yellow .Also there was a gap between my teeth which has been closed slightly and the front four teeth have been capped . But now i cant close my mouth properly and the teeth rest on my bottom lip and my top lip sticks out more. The my teeth did do this slightly before I’d gotten veneers fitted but not as much as they do now . Also when i put my bottom and top lips together it feels as if I have to stretch my lip to get it to cover my teeth, for example when you stretch your lips to rub together after you’ve just put a fresh coat of lipstick on. Surely this cant be right ?
Thank you for your time

How much is it fro implants on my 4 missing teeth?

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011
Q.

Hello,

I have recently been told that I need to have a 2 implants fixed for four of my missing teeth. But to be honest I agree with my dentist as I have had a four tooth metal plate for a long time now. I am 50 years old. I went to a private specialist a few weeks ago and have been quoted for placement of two implants at £1,900 and £180 for extraction of broken canine.

In addition the cost for a four unit porcelain bridge is £3,600. In total this comes to £5,580 – which feels a lot for me and is slightly more than what I was expecting to pay. I would like to know if this sounds about right in your opinion?

Many thanks

Is now a good time to get my teeth replaced?

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011
Q.

hello Doctor.
question = I grind my teeth while sleeping very badly. My back teeth are worn down too much and my bite is too close which is uncomfortable and gives me headaches.I think I pull my lower jaw backwards to be able to close my back teeth. second problem is because of excessive grinding all my life I have lost most of my teeth and have either crowns or implants. I have a bar of 8 crowns held on by 5 implants at the top front of my mouth. I was never happy with them because the gum at the front shrunk as much that even with the bridge of 8 crowns it still looks like I have no teeth and they are not seen when I speak or smile. when I had my own natural teeth they were all showing at the front when I spoke or smiled. the bridge of crowns that I have just now have become loose and before I get them recemented I wanted to know if its possible to have the whole of the top set of teeth replaced so that they open my mouth more at the back and show more teeth at the front when I smile or speak. hope Ive explained that properly 🙂 thank you

How much would it cost to get implants for my 5 missing teeth?

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011
Q.

hi

hi like most people looking for some advise on my next step with my teeth..this is the story..I lost my front tooth when i was a teenager, then i had a poorly made bridge fitted this lasted for about 6 years till i took a boot in the mouth playing football then had another tooth worn down and new ( poorly) fitted bridge put in. i now have another one and in all i now have 5 missing teeth under the bridge..i really hate the look of it and its never felt right in my mouth it was a nhs job so i no it was never gonna be the best but i expected better than what was actually fitted. implants sound good put at about 2500 per tooth i could not afford to spend 12500 putting it right is this the correct price?.. or could you tell me what other opitions would be availble to me. really need to get this sorted asap many thanks
