Why am I Still Having Problems 6 Weeks After Treatment?

June 8th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Glover. I recently had an implant retained denture, and was aware that they take quite a long time to get used to. It’s been 6 weeks and I’m still struggling. I gag when I eat and my gums keep bleeding, and my mouth feels sore. I have made an appointment with my dentist for two weeks time but I’d just like a bit of advice before I go. Why do you think I’m still having problems?

My Partial Denture is Uncomfortable. Would Dental Implants Be a Better Solution for Me?

April 11th, 2015
Q.

Hello, I’d like some advice. I’m 57 and due to gum disease I’ve lost a number of teeth around my mouth over the last couple of years. Two teeth at the front have been lost and another at the front is very loose, so it’s only a matter of time before that comes out too. I do wear a partial denture but find it very uncomfortable and I also find it difficult to eat because the denture makes the food taste strange. Could dental implants be a better solution for me, and how much approximately would they cost for my situation?

Which Is The Better Option Between All-On-4 And Implants For Dentures?

February 24th, 2015
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.

I’m 48. Am I Able To Have Dentures Fitted At This Age?

February 1st, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr. Fahey. I have gum disease and my current dentist said I can’t have dentures or plates fitted where my missing teeth are. This is a problem as I’m very self-conscious when smiling. My dentist said I’m unable to have existing front teeth taken out to have dentures as I’m only 48. I’m worried that I’ll never be able to smile properly. Will I ever be able to have dentures? I’d be grateful if you could advise me.

How Much Do Lower Fixed Dentures Usually Cost And Can My Normal Dentist Do It?

December 24th, 2014
Q.

Hi Kalpesh, can you help me please? How much do lower fixed dentures cost and can my normal dentist do it? I am worried about getting lower dentures and it not staying in place or falling out. I have only got a few lower teeth and they are quite rotten/ bad. I already have top denture. I have been brave and gone to dentist but feel so ashamed and embarrassed because I’m fed up getting abscesses, etc and I want to be confident again when I smile. I would be grateful for any advice or information you can offer me. Thank you.

I Am Suffering From Painful Headaches And I Have Gagging Problems. Would I Be Suitable Candidate For Implants?

December 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, I have had all my teeth removed from the upper and lower jaws, and as a result of the dentures fitted, I am suffering from painful headaches and have a problem with gagging which leads to me vomiting more often than I would like. I have been trying to use these dentures but it is starting to have a real impact on my health. I have seen on some sites that yes in certain cases implants are available and others that say no but none are specific to any case or one such as mine. Can you advise me on my best course of action please? Thank you.

The Taste Of Food Is Impaired By My Dentures, Would I Be A Suitable Candidate For Implants?

December 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I am 47 years old and over the last two years have lost a number of upper teeth due to gum disease. I have lost two of my front teeth and one of my main front teeth is extremely loose an am sure it will come out soon, I have a partial denture that is uncomfortable and eating is no longer a pleasure as the taste of my food is impaired and does not feel natural. Can dental implants offer me a better solution and which treatment would suit my problem best and what is the treatment cost estimate? I hope you can help me answer these questions as it would be a great help.

I Have Little Money For Implants, Why Won’t My Dentist Refer Me? Should I Seek A Second Opinion?

September 25th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Fahey. My dentist will not refer me to kings college for referral for implants. My dentures make me gag. I can’t really afford to pay but could pay a little towards them. Please help me as I am desperate walking around with no teeth and I feel ashamed and I just cover my mouth up when talking to anyone. When I asked for a referral the first time, I only had a few teeth were missing but my dentist still wouldn’t. Can you have a second opinion when it comes to a dentist? Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

I’ve Opted For An Implant Retained Denture, But I’m Really Struggling. I’m Gagging All The Time. What Do You Think My Dentist Will Say?

September 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Nick. I opted for the implant retained denture and knew it was going to take a while for me to get used to it. But I’m really struggling, it’s been 2 weeks and I feel like I’m gagging all the time, especially when I eat. It’s so painful and my gums are bleeding slightly. I’m due to see my dentist next week but would love a bit of advice before I go. What do you think he’s going to say? I don’t want to go another 5 months without teeth! Thanks for your time.
