I have been told different things by two dentists. Who do I believe?

Friday, September 10th, 2010
Q.
Dear Dr Tennet I am at so so confused. I had a root canal treatment on my first premolar about 2 years ago. I didnt have a crown. Needless to say the remaining tooth broke after a year, first on the back. then at the front a year later. The embedded remaining piece which I assume being the filling, was loose. I had a white filling, I also had posts placed into my root canals. I first went to a dentist who said that nothing could be done in terms of having a crown, as what was left had been fractured, pointing to and showing me the loose bit that I myself earlier had discovered. Because of this the dentist recomended either an extraction, and the option between a bridge, denture or implant. I then went to another dentist, who said that I could have a crown fixed onto the tooth/ remaining piece even though this was a loose piece. I have really no idea what to do and who to believe and would really appriciate your help. Thank you, Kind Regards,

I have two gaps in my teeth. Will one implant work or will I need two?

Thursday, September 9th, 2010
Q.
I have a tooth that had a crown on that needs to be removed. Next to it is a space from an earlier extraction. Can I have one implant in that space since only one will be seen when I smile or do both areas need implants? I can’t afford two implants as this time,

My midline and my bite are off centre and I can’t afford metal braces. What is the next best thing?

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010
Q.
hi, my teeth are in a bad way. when i was younger my baby teeth werent coming out and my adult teeth were begining to grow on top of them, so i had a mass extraction of my teeth but unfortunately they left an extra tooth in the top arch making my teeth shift to the right and an extra tooth in the bottom arch making them shift left. the result is my midline is off and so is my bite. I cant afford metal braces but that is what has been recommended. what is the next best thing?,

Which is the most suitable type of implant to support bridgework?

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010
Q.
I am looking at an implant centre that is more local to my location and they offer different types of implants namely Asta Tech, legacy and Nobel Biocare. Are these different techniques or materials? Which would be most suitable for two implants supporting bridgework to fill a large gap made by 2 extractions of 2 back teeth or is it a purley cosmetic choice.,

Can you advise me on which cosmetic option would be more suitable for my problem?

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010
Q.
Hiya, wonder if you could advise me on the best course of treatment. I have a failing bridge involving UR3,2 and 1. UR3 needs an extraction. I have been advised to replace this with an implant onto which a cantilever bridge can fit to replace my missing UR2, with a single crown for ur1. I another clinic have recommended I have two implants in UR3 and 2, instead of the cantilever option, they dont like cantilever bridges and think the mechanics of them is too much pressure on one implant and are not gauranteed to last, I also have a heavy bite with some wearing on my bottom teeth and this makes me feel two implants may be better? but I realise the two options will look different cosmetically both clinics argue that their way will look better aesthetically, also I have a bridge involving the same teeth the other side of my mouth. I can see pros and cons to both treatment plans, please help!!!,

Can anything be done to address my gapped and protruding teeth?

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010
Q.
I am 55 and have gappy protruding teeth. My two front upper teeth are capped and were made larger then the originals and I have a missing tooth on each upper side after the ‘incisors’ they were extracted to fit a brace when I was thirteen. Until I had one of my front teeth replaced with an implanted cap? that is too protruding and large my confidence has waned. Can anything be done,

I had a root canal done about six weeks ago and I’m still experiencing sensitivity. Will the tooth settle or should I seek more treatment?

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010
Q.
I had my very first root canal treatment about 6 weeks ago. I am still experiencing sensitivity. When I wake up in the morning there is no pain. The pain only occurs after grinding my teeth (chewing etc.) I spoke to my dentist who was very defensive and quite rude and told me to compare it with an appendix removal! He said to give it a lot longer to settle. Will the tooth settle, or would it be better to have an extraction and an implant? Please reply – I’m desperate!,
