I have a missing tooth, are dental implants the best option?

February 3rd, 2011
Q.
Hi Dr Fahey I have a missing left upper incisor but the root is fine . Is dental implant best alternative then crown or bridge with someone with healthy tooth root? What are the hidden main disadvantages of having dental implants which are not mentioned anywhere . I would appreciate a considerate answer leaving the business side of the treatment aside . Thanks

I need a double sinus lift, bridge and 8 implants, would £16,000 cover this?

February 3rd, 2011
Q.
At 61 years of age, my upper teeth are absent. I need a double sinus lift along with a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants (8 implants) is the best permanent solution. I have been assessed by the Dental hospital and three separate Implant Dentists. I have £16,00.00 will this be sufficient? Prices vary enormously across the UK market…,

Root canal filling or dental implants?

February 3rd, 2011
Q.
I have a decaying (possibly dead) lower molar with subgingival decay. My dentist has explained a root canal may fail and a surgeon has told me that taking out the tooth once root filled to then attempt an implant is more complex. In cases with subgingival decay of a lower molar what are your views on root canal fillings versus implants?,

I am losing teeth after not taking care of them, is there anything I can do?

February 3rd, 2011
Q.
following years of poor dental hygiene I now find myself (regrettably) losing my teeth, my gums have receded and am told of ‘poor bone quality’ by my dentist. Is there any hope for me?? I’m becoming a tad depressed about this,

Should I pay for expensive dental implants or get mini implants?

February 3rd, 2011
Q.
I have been quoted £2,187 for 3 Implants and some extraction work so an upper denture can be fitted by ‘Dentale’ in Shrewsbury who are a training practice. My own dentist in Belper does Implant work and originally told me the prices of these implants were impossible to obtain. He now tells me having examined the paperwork that he is concerned about the overall plan from ‘Dentale’ and sees no need for Full Implants. He suggests Mini Implants . There may be a small amount of bone augmentation needed for Full Implants but Dentale have made that clear. When I challenged Dentale they consider Mini Implants to have a higher risk of failure. I have spoken to someone I know who used Dentale and was very satisfied but there is greater expense and inconvenience in travelling and if adjustments are needed afterwards my local dentist is handy.He now also tells me he can match the price after all.Presumably because he’s using Mini Implants. I am keen for a better denture nearly swallowed the existing one with my Xmas cake.. What would you advise me?,
