Are Dental Implants a Good Option for Fixing my Broken Teeth?

June 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi, Dr Bohara. I’m unhappy with my mouth as I have 4 broken teeth, and 2 old fillings that look horrible. I’ve been too embarrassed to go to the dentist in the past but now it’s got to the stage where my confidence is really suffering. I do wish I hadn’t left it so long, but now I’d like to know what the best option is for me. Would dental implants be a good option? Thanks.

My Dentist Said He Can’t Place A Single Implant. Can This Be Done?

May 21st, 2014
Q.

My problem is that I have a broken post on a root-filled upper canine tooth. Many adjacent teeth are also root-filled [by an endodontic specialist dentist] with posts and crowns. My dentist referred me to an implant dentist who says I need several implants, he cannot just do the one tooth. No doubt the other teeth are not perfect. I am 67, but am loath to consider extracting them and having implants as long as they seem satisfactory. I had no idea that posts could break. Your website seems not to suggest that single implants present problems! Is a single implant possible.

My CEREC Veneer Fell Out And Broke My Original Tooth. Should I Get A Dental Implant Or A Bridge?

May 14th, 2014
Q.

Hi there, was looking for some kind of advice from your good self.
I have an existing dental implant where my front tooth should be – I have had this for nearly 8 years. The next tooth to that one had a CEREC veneer placed on on it due to a little discolouration  following root canal treatment when I was a teenager. The CEREC veneer unfortunately fell out after 8 months and it snapped my own original tooth which I was very upset about. Do you think it would be wise now to get a dental implant or would a bridge be better? Many thanks, Leeann.

How Much Would A Single Tooth Replacement And Teeth-Whitening Treatment Cost?

April 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr. Fahey, I’m wondering if you could help me. I am looking for a single tooth replacement and teeth-whitening treatment. Can you tell me how much that would cost? Thank you. I fell and knocked the tooth out, and the tooth next to it is a little chipped too, at the very front of my mouth to the left.
I am so conscious of it that I don’t smile. I don’t believe the NHS will be able to help me, so I really hope you can.

I Have A Broken Tooth. Do I Need An Implant Or A Plate?

April 1st, 2014
Q.

I have one broken tooth in the front of my lower jaw, and my dentist has advised me to have an implant. As I have only one tooth to replace, is this something you would advise or would a plate be more suitable? I would like to add that I am 71 years old and a plate would be around £250 rather than £2000 for the single tooth implant. I am not sure what else to tell you about my problem and trust that the information I have given is sufficient for you to advise.
Thanks in advance, Gordon Pettitt.

What Work Would I Need Doing To Prepare Me For Dental Implants?

May 20th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Fahey! My teeth are absolutely knackered. Some are cracked quite badly and one has fallen out. I know that his sounds quite bad and truthfully it is, the state of my mouth makes me feel terrible in my day to day life. So basically I was wondering, what sort of work might I need before having implants in order to prepare my mouth for them? Would I need extensive amounts of work done? As that could prove too costly for me, especially with the prices of the implants I’d like afterwards. Thanks, look forward to hearing from you soon.

My teeth have begun to crumble and I don’t know why, could you please advise?

May 1st, 2012
Q.

My teeth have become week since i had my children the first being 13 years ago and the last of 4 being 3 years ago, but within the last two months my teeth have began to crumble. I am not over weight and run atleast 3 times aweek, we eat at every meal fruit and veg.(mainly friut salad and salad). Although thinking about it we did have two littres of freshly squeezed oranges every day from november to january. could this have had a part in all of a sudden that my teeth have started to crumble? I am 40 but since november have started to have taccicardio and passing out on a daily basis. I was given at the end of feb almarytn 100mg per day my heart is better now and I dont pass out any more. But at the same time that I was given the new tablet it seems that my teeth problems started? brush my teeth 3 or four times aday and use mouth wash and have regular visits to the dentist. Apart from the reason I have outlined in this email I cannot think of anything else that has changed in the last couple of months? I would really like to know what I should do now? I have never had problems when I was younger my teeth were always strong and I have never really had an over sweet tooth and I hardly ever drink fizzy drinks. Thank you very much for looking at my problem and I look forward to your answer.

I have lost a tooth but cannot have implant treatment until 3 months from now, will anymore damage occur?

April 24th, 2012
Q.

I have a question regarding my 2nd front upper tooth. I had a root canal done on this tooth which later discoloured and I chose to have a veneer done to improve its appearance. However, now the tooth broke off at the gumline. I want to get an implant but I’m moving away in three months and have been advised that this is not enough time for implant to heal and so to complete the procedure. In light of this, I’ve been asked to wait until I move to the new location and have the implant put later. I want to double check this will not be a great problem (does bone loss progress signiicantly in three months?). ALso, my job requires me to speak publicly so I need to have some aesthetic interim solution — could you please let me know what the best solution is since I do want an implant at a later stage? Thank you.

Hi Dr MooreI fell over last Monday and have sustained a horizontal crack in 1 of the teeth directly next to my 2 front teeth (not sure of the name sorry). My teeth are perfectly healthy but the crack is horizontal right across the middle of the tooth

April 20th, 2012
Q.

Hi Dr Moore I fell over last Monday and have sustained a horizontal crack in 1 of the teeth directly next to my 2 front teeth (not sure of the name sorry). My teeth are perfectly healthy but the crack is horizontal right across the middle of the tooth just on the gum line. My dentist said it needs to be completely removed!!! And recommended having an implant. Is this my only option? Can’t the tooth not be saved?! And if not how soon do I need the procedure? I am due to go on holiday in 2 weeks to Thailand for 3 weeks. Can I leave the procedure of tooth removal and implant till then? Many thanks for your time une reading this. I am massively gutted about the whole incident so any help or advice would be greatly received. Thank you
