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.

I’m Worried My Teeth Will Keep Falling Out Due to Gum Disease and Implants are Expensive. What Can Be Done?

April 24th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Fahey. I’ve been receiving treatment for gum disease over the last few months. I had a filling about 4 weeks ago, and following it I’ve had a severe toothache, and the tooth is so loose I think it’s going to fall out. I really don’t want a plate fitted, and I’m terrified that my other teeth will start to fall out too. It’s frustrating because I thought I was getting rid of the gum disease! Now, if my teeth do start falling out, and I pay for just the one tooth now, I might have to keep getting implants and obviously this is going to cost me more and more with each tooth. My dentist isn’t saying much on the matter which winds me up even more. Can you help me?

My Dental Implant Was Itching and Now it Won’t Stop Bleeding. Any Advice?

April 24th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I did something really stupid. I had my implants fitted only 3 weeks ago and was extremely itchy around one of the areas. I scratched it and now it won’t stop bleeding. I thought it would stop but it hasn’t! I’ve tried everything and I’m scared that it means my implant is failing. I’m seeing my implant dentist tomorrow but just wondered if you could advise me for now? I need to feel better…I spent SO much money on these implants. Thanks for your time.

Are Dental Implants a Good Option for Fixing my Broken Teeth?

April 17th, 2015
Q.

Hi, Dr Bohara. I’m unhappy with my mouth as I have 4 broken teeth, and 2 old fillings that look horrible. I’ve been too embarrassed to go to the dentist in the past but now it’s got to the stage where my confidence is really suffering. I do wish I hadn’t left it so long, but now I’d like to know what the best option is for me. Would dental implants be a good option? Thanks.

Are Gingival Grafts Better For Dental Implants Than Bone Grafts?

April 12th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I have two upper premolars missing and the gum has receded inwards but not upwards. There is enough bone there for implants, but my concern is that when they are placed I will have the same issue I had with the bridge I previously had there – that is of air and saliva being trapped in the gum dip above the tooth ‘shelf’ that sticks out beyond the receded gum. I have been put off bone grafting as I’m told the gum is tight and there is a high failure rate, but I wonder if gingival grafts might serve to bulk up the dip area and lessen the shelf that will be created by the implant teeth? Thank you.

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?

My Teeth Have Been Damaged by My Lip Piercing. Am I Suitable for Mini Implants?

April 11th, 2015
Q.

I’m 22, and have had my lip pierced since I was 19. Due to a new job I had to take the piercing out but decided I’d outgrown it so I don’t wear it at all now, but since taking it out I’ve noticed it’s done some damage to some of my lower teeth. I’ve been told that in the near future I’ll need a fixed bridge, if not one of those then implants. I’ve looked into them and prefer the sound of mini implants to anything else, but I don’t know if I’m suitable to have them.What do you suggest? I do regret the piercing now, but the past is the past and I can’t change that! I need to focus on what can be done to my teeth now, so any advice you have would be great. Thanks!

Am I Suitable for All on 4 Implants?

April 6th, 2015
Q.

Hello, I was wondering if you could offer me some advice. I’m looking into having All on 4 Implants on both my upper and lower jaw. 15 of my teeth need to be removed and at the moment I have a denture of 3 teeth along with 6 natural ones that are in bad condition. I have gum disease and suffer with bone loss. I’ve been advised to travel abroad and I really don’t want to. Are All on 4 Implants an option for me? Thank you.

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.

Should I Get Mini Or Full Dental Implants?

April 2nd, 2015
Q.

Hi there, I wonder if you can help me to make a decision. I’ve been to 2 consultations regarding dental implants after having an accident in which I lost 3 teeth. One dentist suggested I have mini implants whereas the other guy said full implants would be best as I don’t have enough bone to support the mini implants. So obviously now I don’t know who to go with. What do you think?
