I Had an Infected Molar Removed But the Sockets Keeps Getting Infected. Do I Need Antibiotics?

April 25th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I hope you can be of some help. I have recently had one of my top molars (which had been crowned) removed after getting infected twice, because my dentist said there’s a high risk of it getting infected again and again. He cleaned the hole left by the molar but about a week later it was infected, so I went back and he used an antiseptic to clean it again. I’m due to go back in 5 days because it feels like it’s getting infected again, should I ask for antibiotics this time? Thank you in advance.

My Dental Implant Crown Keeps Coming Loose. Have You Ever Heard Of This Happening?

January 19th, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Fahey, I hope you can help me. My dental implant crown has come loose 4 times in the last year and the screw has been tightened each time which only lasts a few weeks at a time. Have you ever heard of this happening? Twice it has happened while I was flossing under it. It doesn’t hurt at all, it’s just the crown is coming loose which worries me. Any advice? Can we glue that screw in there?My dentist is considering ordering some new part but he told me he has never seen this before. Thanks.

Does Bone Grafting Work As I Need A New Implant To Replace An Old One?

November 13th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr. Fahey, I am 55 year old male, non-smoker and in good health.
I have a 23 year old front tooth implant which has a small bone loss and is sensitive due to some gum exposure. My dentist says bone and gum grafting will help. But I read that it is either not possible or success rate is non-existant. Is there a rough success rate percentage anywhere I can look before making decision?
I don’t know the make or model of the implant but 23 years ago there were probably only a few around. Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

I Want A Couple Of Implants To Support My Partial Dentures As I Regret Having My Top Teeth Pulled. Is This Possible?

August 28th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I have a full upper set of false teeth and only a few teeth remaining on the bottom and I was wondering if I could get just a few implants or crowns in order to help me return to wearing just a partial denture at the top like I had previously before getting all my teeth at the top removed? I’m getting so depressed through it that I can’t even leave the house and I find it hard to talk properly, I have saved up a couple of thousand pounds and was wondering if there was anyway to help relieve me of wearing a full set of dentures? Could I have a few crowns or implants fitted that could then support a partial plate with the other teeth as I really regret having all my top teeth pulled out as I’m now lacking self confidence and I feel helpless, any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Why is it going to take 4-6 months to fix a crown to my dental implant?

November 17th, 2012
Q.

I am aged 58.Only two days ago My dentist have implanted a metallic screw type material on one my tooth. I thought he will provide me a crown on that screw within a day or two but he is now telling he will fix the crown after 4 or 6 months. Will you please explain me why so delay. An orthopedic surgeon dose not need so much time to insert a metallic part on the human body. Human body accepts a particular type of titanium alloy do you think that the screw what my dentist have implanted is of not that type so this unnecessary time is required to acclaim the given metal with my body .

My two front crowns are falling out, can I have dental implants instead

July 26th, 2012
Q.

Hi.
Both my 2 upper front teeth are crowned following an accident when I was 11, I am now 46. I have had 2 Apisectomies on one of the teeth (crowns). I have started feeling a lot of pressure again above this tooth & also the crown looks like it has dropped, compared to the other crown next to it. I have several questions:
1. Can I have another apisectomy performed?
2. If I have to have an implant would it be better to replace both front teeth with a double implant, although the other tooth has been fine since being crowned.
3. I am on a budget as well, & don’t have spare cash available so would have to get a loan for the treatment, is there finance available to cover this.
4. Could I have an implant & treatment done on 1 day or would I need a bone graph as I have read on the Internet.
Sorry I’m really upset & confused by it all!!
