My 8-year-old grandson has been told he needs orthodontic treatment, is this available on the NHS and should I get a second opinion?

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011
Q.

My Grandson who is nearly 8 has teeth growing in all sorts of places and his new ones are coming through without some of the baby teeth having come out yet. His dentist suggested private Orthodontist treatment. They have now assessed him and recommend removal of some teeth as well as braces for 2 years at a cost of £3,000 or more. I think a second opinion should be sought before launching into radical treatment and I thought children would be treated under the NHS. Please let me have your opinion.

hi doctor,

Why has my dentist put in a bridge along with my five implanted teeth?

Monday, January 10th, 2011
Q.

I have 5 implants and my doctor has put a bridge as long as my five implanted teeth? I feel it shouldn’t be like that and the teeth should be seperate from each other. I apprecite to have your opinion in this case.

Do i qualify for dentures on the NHS?

Monday, January 10th, 2011
Q.

15 years ago i used a teeth whitening set with gum shield at home, but my teeth didn’t go whiter, they went darker so i used more and more of these whitening sets, my teeth ended up falling apart and my problems started. Now 15 years on i am now 31, i have 5 caps on my front teeth, 7 missing teeth and all my teeth are black, and i mean black, the more i brush them the smaller they are getting, also when i had the caps fitted to my front teeth they are the wrong size and angle so i can not bite anything at all with my front teeth, i also can not eat using my side teeth as i don’t have any teeth on the bottom of one side, and the teeth on the other side are breaking apart as i have chewed on the same side for almost 15 years, i have my health visitor coming to see our baby and she has already sent me to the doctors 6 times as she thinks i am starving myself, i am not starving myself though i simply can not eat, i have lived off soups and soft sandwiches for years now and am very thin. also as my teeth are a horrible colour i do not have any photos of myself at all for the past 15 years, not one wedding photo and none at all with our 3 children, this is destroying my life. i am an NHS patient as i can not even begin to afford private work with the amount i need done, i wanted to ask what are my options? do i qualify for a set of false teeth so i can eat and smile again? i know i’m young for false teeth but i don’t know of any other way, i just can not believe i have destroyed my teeth by trying to make them better, i had no problems at all untill i used the teeth whitening product all those years ago, can you suggest anything at all please?
