I Would Like To Know If You Treat Children For Orthodontics Who Suffer From Osteoporosis?

Friday, August 29th, 2014

Hello Dr Hughes. I hope you can help us. I would like to know if you treat children for orthodontics who have been on biphosphonate treatment for osteoporosis?  My daughter is 14 years old and has been on and off treatment for 8 years.  I have had her on waiting lists for up to two years only to then be told that now they won’t treat her, even though her consultant has said the risks are minimal.  Is this something you or any of your colleagues can advise us on? She is desperate to be treated because she also has overcrowding that can be painful at times. Thank you.

Do You Know Why My Dentist Refuses To Give Me A Bridge Instead Of A Partial Denture?

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Hello Dr Moore. I had a tooth removed which was crowned because of an on-going infection and I have a crowned tooth one side and a soon to be crowned tooth the other side. Do you know why my dentist refuses to use a bridge rather than a partial denture? I have looked at implants but I have osteoporosis in the family and I’m unsure. Both my dentist and my hygienist have said it would be unsuitable but I was hoping for a bridge. Thank you for getting in touch.
