The Gum Underneath My Implant is Swollen. Why Might This Be?

July 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to read my question. I am a 46 year old female in good health. I had 2 upper implants fitted 6 years ago, and although they’ve been great up to now, the gum underneath one of them is swollen and quite painful. I’m able to eat things without much discomfort and the gum doesn’t appear to be bleeding but I would like to know what’s wrong. I’d really appreciate any advice you may have. Thank you Dr McGovern.

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

June 24th, 2014
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?

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

June 17th, 2014
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.

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

June 11th, 2014
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?

I’m Anxious About Having Dental Treatment But Really Want My Smile Back. What Can Be Done?

June 6th, 2014
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.

How Can I Get A Lovely Smile Without Having False Teeth?

May 21st, 2014
Q.

Hi there, I am a 51 year old lady who suffered Crohns disease and was on long term steroids. I have been off them for 6 years now. My teeth and gums suffered and I have slight gum disease.
I have 1 crown in the front which is not in straight, and the tooth next to it is bridged onto a smaller tooth and is a different colour. I also have gaps. I would like a lovely smile again without having false teeth, any suggestions?

Will My Father’s Dental Implants Look Natural?

May 16th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Glover. I’ve recently paid for my father to get some of his teeth sorted and he’s due to have three dental implants fitted but he’s starting to have second thoughts. Is there any way his dentist can manage to calm him down before he has them? Will they match up correctly and look natural? He’s worried about looking stupid. I hope you can provide us with information on this. It would really be helping us out. Thanks.

Can I Be Put Under Anaesthetic During The Implant Procedure?

May 14th, 2014
Q.

 I do not like going to the dentist but if I ask my dentist about implants, can she send me to the hospital to be put under anaesthetics during the implant procedure? I’m really scared of dentists. I had a bad experience 8 years ago but now I only have 7 teeth so I can’t eat properly. I’ve lost a lot of weight and am very unhappy with the way I look. Implants sound perfect but only if they put me to sleep first!

My CEREC Veneer Fell Out And Broke My Original Tooth. Should I Get A Dental Implant Or A Bridge?

May 14th, 2014
Q.

Hi there, was looking for some kind of advice from your good self.
I have an existing dental implant where my front tooth should be – I have had this for nearly 8 years. The next tooth to that one had a CEREC veneer placed on on it due to a little discolouration  following root canal treatment when I was a teenager. The CEREC veneer unfortunately fell out after 8 months and it snapped my own original tooth which I was very upset about. Do you think it would be wise now to get a dental implant or would a bridge be better? Many thanks, Leeann.

I Have A Very Sensitive Gag Reflex. Can I Be Put To Sleep During Implant Treatment?

May 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi! I have 3 missing teeth, on my bottom jaw. They’re not causing me any problems as such but I feel like I would like to have them replacing as I can feel my jaw starting to sag. The only problem is that I have a VERY sensitive gag reflex, which is why my teeth were in such a state to begin with. My dentist couldn’t go near my mouth without me dry heaving and then being sick! I was wondering if I was to opt for this if I could be put to sleep to receive the treatment? Even at the check-up? Consultation? Honestly, it’s that bad and I’m at my wits end! Thanks.
