What Advice Can You Give Regarding the Implant Procedure? It Sounds Scary to Me!

June 28th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Bohara, I’m very worried and hope you can help me. I’m 25 and my teeth are a complete mess. I have more than one broken tooth, and I don’t even know how it’s happened, I feel too young to be in this situation! I know I haven’t been to the dentist since I was 17 so that could be some of the reason, but I’ve done some research and it sounds like I may have to have some of my teeth removed and replaced with implants and if I’m perfectly honest, that sounds scary to me. What advice can you give me regarding this? Thank you.

I Suffer From Dental Phobia. Can I Have My Teeth Replaced Without Drilling?

June 5th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, I hope you can help me. I have a huge phobia of going to the dentist, and because of this I haven’t been to see one for about 7 years. My teeth have started to feel loose and I really don’t know what to do. My phobia means I just couldn’t go through with the implant procedure, it’s too much for me. Is there any way I could have teeth removed and replaced without the use of drilling? Not only am I scared of going to the dentist but I’m also ashamed of my teeth. Please give me all the advice you can.

I Need a Filling But Suffer From Dental Anxiety. What Can Be Done?

May 28th, 2015
Q.

Hi there, I’m 14 and have a massive problem with dental work while conscious. I have needed a filling for over a year but backed out because the process of numbing went wrong and I just couldn’t handle it. I was supposed to get a referral to arrange what could be done but never did. I’m going back to get another referral but what will they do, and what can I do?
I was put completely to sleep when I was younger to have 10 teeth removed which wasn’t so bad, but when I had one awake it sent me crazy! I’m not sure why I can’t cope with being conscious during treatment, but I just can’t and I don’t know what to do.

Can the Implant Procedure be Carried Out Under Anaesthetic?

May 24th, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Bohara, I have 4 missing teeth at the top of my mouth on the right side and I want to have them replaced but I have a really really sensitive gag reflex. I’ve always had problems going to the dentist because of this as I’d gag even if I was only having a check up! But it sounds like I need implants so I just wanted to know if the procedure can be carried out with me under anaesthetic?

I’m Anxious About Having Dental Treatment But Really Want My Smile Back. What Can Be Done?

April 6th, 2015
Q.

Hi there. My teeth are awful, and many are missing. I’ve never been able to get them sorted because I didn’t have much money but I feel as though now I’m doing much better financially so it needs to be done. As desperate as I am to have a beautiful smile, I am terrified of the amount of dental work I’m faced with because my teeth have gotten really bad and I suffer from general anxiety, which I suppose has stemmed from my lack of confidence with regards to my appearance. What options are available to me and is there support available for anxious patients? Thank you.

Will My Father’s Dental Implants Look Natural?

March 16th, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Glover. I’ve recently paid for my father to get some of his teeth sorted and he’s due to have three dental implants fitted but he’s starting to have second thoughts. Is there any way his dentist can manage to calm him down before he has them? Will they match up correctly and look natural? He’s worried about looking stupid. I hope you can provide us with information on this. It would really be helping us out. Thanks.

I’m About To Have An Implant Put In. Will It Hurt?

March 15th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr McGovern. I’m about to have an implant put in as I have a missing tooth. I’m pretty scared of dentists and tend to get a bit panicky when I go, so I’m really nervous now!! Will it hurt? I’ve got a low pain threshold so I’m scared it’s really going to hurt me. And will my mouth swell up afterwards? I don’t want that!

Can I Be Put Under Anaesthetic During The Implant Procedure?

March 14th, 2015
Q.

 I do not like going to the dentist but if I ask my dentist about implants, can she send me to the hospital to be put under anaesthetics during the implant procedure? I’m really scared of dentists. I had a bad experience 8 years ago but now I only have 7 teeth so I can’t eat properly. I’ve lost a lot of weight and am very unhappy with the way I look. Implants sound perfect but only if they put me to sleep first!

Hi. I Am Desperate For An Implant! The Only Issue Is That I Suffer From SVT, And I’m Looking For Someone Who Can Treat Me?

July 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Fahey. I want to tell you that I am really desperate for an implant! The only issue is that I suffer from regular SVT, especially when I’m panicked/nervous which often causes me to pass out. I’m looking for someone who can try to treat a patient like me? Would it be more suitable for me to be placed under sedation? Or will that only cause further heart problems? Can you please offer me some advice? I would be very grateful if you could help. I just want to be able to smile properly again, without any gaps! Thank you, I really hope you can help me sort this out.

I have not been to the dentist in years because I am petrified of my dentist. Can you help?

September 29th, 2013
Q.

I am absolutely petrified of a dentist consequently have not been for years and my teeth are now loose. I don’t know what to do and am very scared. I know I could not have implants because I just could not cope with it I know that, is there any way if I lost a front tooth I could have a false one without drilling into my bone please? I’m also now ashamed to go to the dentist and it has been so long and my teeth are so bad.

Many thanks
