Can I Get Implant Treatment on the NHS?

September 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Kalpesh, unfortunately my situation isn’t great. I haven’t taken enough care of my teeth over the last year or so and as a result they’re not in good shape. Aside from being worn down, they are also really crooked so my mouth does not look pleasant at all. I’ve been doing some research and as far as I can see I have 2 main options. I could have the bad teeth removed on the NHS and then pay for a brace with a private orthodontist, or have them taken out and get a full set of dental implants. Is this correct? Ideally I’d like to know how much this would all cost. Would I be able to receive free or discounted treatment as I am currently 25, fresh out of university and don’t have a job?

My 13 Year Old Son Has Had a Tooth Knocked Out. What Shall We Do?

September 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. My son is 13 and lost one of his front teeth whilst playing football with his friends. I’ve been looking at our options online and am not sure which treatment would be best. It’s only been 6 days since it happened and he’s very upset. As an image-conscious teen he’s worried about what people will think about him and it’s upsetting for me to see him so unhappy. What do you think the best treatment option would be? Thank you so much.

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

August 28th, 2014
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’ve Cracked My Dental Crown, What Should I Do?

August 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore.
I had a crown placed over a dental implant about 3 years ago, but now it’s cracked! It’s definitely going to fall out, it doesn’t feel secure at all now, and parts of it have started to come off. Obviously I can’t go on like this because I don’t want to cut my tongue or anything and it’s difficult to eat now. I’ve got an appointment with my dentist next Monday, but what should I do between then and now? And what will he say? Thank you.

Can I Have My Implant Taken Out and Put Back In?

August 19th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Glover. I’m just wondering if a loose implant can be placed back in, so the loose implant is really being replaced by the same implant? It started to feel loose just over a month after I had it placed and my dentist said my bone level is fine, but only the tip of the implant is in the bone. I’m not sure if the drilling was done properly but I’m not sure if I can have it replaced with the same implant. What do you think?

I’m a Dentist in the US. Can You Give Me Any Information on Friatec Frialit-2 Dental Implants?

August 18th, 2014
Q.

Hello, I work at an oral surgery practice in the US and have a patient that needs an MRI. She had a Friatec Frialit-2 dental implant placed back in 1998. I’m trying to find information on what metals the implant is made of. At the time those implants were distributed by Interpore International here in the US. I can’t seem to find anything on these implants currently other than they are used in the UK. Hoping you can help me with this.

What’s the Best Option to Fix My Broken Teeth?

August 15th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr McGovern. 
I have a couple of old fillings and about 4 broken teeth that make me feel very self-conscious about my appearance. I shouldn’t have left things as long as I have, but I was too embarrassed to see a dentist. Now I realise I need to sort myself out. What would you suggest my best options are? I’d also like to know how much treatment might cost, and how long it will take. Thank you.

I Need an Implant Replacing, Will Bone Grafting Work?

August 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Fahey, hope you can help me. I’m a 52 year old female, I don’t smoke and am in good health. I’ve had a back tooth implant for 9 years, but it has small bone loss and feels sensitive and a bit sore where the gums are exposed.My dentist has suggested gum and bone grafting, but I’ve been doing some research and have read a lot about it either being an impossible procedure or having a very low success rate. Can you offer me further advice to help me come to a decision?

How Much Does All On 4 Treatment Cost, and Am I Suitable?

August 12th, 2014
Q.

Hey Dr Moore. I need 10 teeth removing, and I would like to have All On 4 treatment on both my upper and lower jaws. Currently I have a denture of 6 teeth along the lower jaw, but there are 4 next to it that are in very bad condition. On the upper jaw there are 6 teeth in bad condition, with no denture there at all. Ideally I’d like an idea on how much the treatment costs, but should probably mention that I suffer from gum disease and it’s quite bad. Am I suitable for All On 4?

My Dentist Won’t Refer Me For Implants. What Shall I Do?

August 11th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Bohara, I’m hoping you can give me some advice about dental implants. I’m a 55 year old male and have visited two dentists at separate practices within the NHS, and both have decided to remove my problem teeth but neglected to discuss with me the options of dental implants and such. I now have 5 missing teeth and would ideally like implants. I’ve been to see my nearest implant specialist but he says I need to be referred by another dentist, and my current one is adamant I have dentures. I’m not happy with the way the missing teeth make me look. I’d be grateful to hear your advice.
