Is There Any Technology That Allows For Implants To Be Placed In Under One Month?

April 15th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore,
I am a healthy 19 year old individual, and I need 2 tooth implants. The teeth I require are the first and fourth incisors, and I need a long term solution. I understand the procedure of dental implants using titanium screws and have been advised that this is best option for me. I am asking you whether there is any new technology that would allow dental implants to be put in in under a month, using the titanium screws? Also, what would the possible advantages and disadvantages of this technology be, compared to the procedure that takes approximately 6 months? Thank you.

Will Taking Steroids For A Short Period Of Time Make My Dental Implants Fall Out?

April 11th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr. Moore. Would taking steroids for shingles for 5 days cause an implant that was in my mouth for 16 months to fall out? I don`t smoke or take any other medication. I took the steroids for 5 days but the shingles were caught early and cleared up within 3 months. I had 2 implants put in, 1 took 28 months for my dentist to put in and the other 16 months. The latter got infected. My question still remains, could taking steroids for a short period of time affect implants?

I Have A Gap Between My Implant And The Neighbouring Teeth. Will My Gum Grow To Fit The Gap?

April 11th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Fahey. I had a single tooth implanted at the top of my mouth at the front. My gum didn’t fill the space on the sides and between the implant and neighbouring teeth.There is a little gap that I’m not happy with. My dentist said that it will grow naturally to fill the gap and gave me some gel to use on the area.

It’s been 3 weeks now and it’s still the same. Will the gum really grow to fill the gap? If not then what other options do I have? Thank you very much.

Can An NHS Dentist Help Me With Bone Resorption?

April 9th, 2014
Q.

I have significant bone resorption & pain from a two year old implant. The bone wasn’t great in the beginning but it has got worse and the stump is now exposed. I have been dedicated to keeping it clean. I have another which I have had no problems with.
I do not have the funds to rectify this privately. Can I use an NHS dentist to help?
The place I used had an offer on but I think the dentist was quite inexperienced in implants. For my first implant I had additional bone grafted but on this one she said “there’s plenty of bone there” and took some from further along my jaw.
Some advice on what to do would be great and also any thoughts on the original grafting. Would I have been spared this if she had only placed some extra bone in?

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

April 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I am currently unemployed and am on Jobseeker’s Allowance. How much would it cost for me to have complete dental implants? Are there any discounts available, and can you pay in monthly or weekly installments? Does my existing tooth root need to be removed before starting the implant treatment? Thank you.

Q.

Hi Dr. Moore. I had my teeth removed a number of years ago, and have been wearing dentures ever since. I find these incredibly uncomfortable and have been looking at the different options available for a more stable replacement. I am torn between All-On-4 and implants for dentures. Which, in your opinion, is the best choice for me? Thank you for your time, any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

Q.

Hello, I have fibromyalgia so I’m in a lot of pain all the time. My teeth are not in the best state because to be perfectly honest I have just let myself go. However, I am looking into dental implants to replace all the teeth in my mouth, but I’m worried that my condition means that I can’t have them. Can you please offer me some advice? I am looking for a specialist who can help me in the Manchester area, do you know of any? If not I am willing to travel for the right dentist who can help. Thank you for your time!

I Have A Loose Implant And My Dentist Is Away. Should I Wait For Him To Return Or See Another Dentist Immediately?

April 7th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I had an implant fitted 4 years ago and it was fine until recently. However the implant now is very wobbly and I can’t eat or chew anything. Unfortunately my implant dentist is out of town until late next week. Is it okay to wait until he returns or should I see any other dentist immediately?
Please note: I had a routine dental checkup with another dentist last week and there was no problem at all.
Please give me some advice regarding the causes of the loose implant. Thank you.

Can I Have Braces With My Dental Implant?

April 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Fahey. Just a quick question. Is there any way I can have braces with my dental implant? I understand it won’t move that tooth at all but I’m worried that the braces may cause it to come loose or damage the crown which is on top of the implant. Have you known this to happen before? I would just love some general ideas before I visit my dentist for a consultation, so I know what to talk about when when I go to visit him. Thank you for your time in advance and I hope you don’t think this is a stupid question. Thanks!

There’s A Crack In One Of My Dental Implants. Should I Go Back To My Dentist To Get It Looked At?

April 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Fahey, I’m wondering if you can help me. I have two implants that are around a year old.They have been perfect for me up until a couple of days ago. I was eating a boiled sweet and crunched it against one of my implants. At the time I didn’t notice anything but it appears that there is a slight crack in the implant. It hasn’t caused any issues so far, however I don’t want it to in the future. Do you think it will be fine or should I head back to my dentist to get it checked out? What could potentially happen? Look forward to hearing from you, thanks.
