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.

Can I Have Bone Fragments Inserted Into My Tooth Gap In Order To Reduce Bone Shrinkage?

April 29th, 2014
Q.

Is it possible and beneficial to have bone fragments inserted into the gap left by an extracted tooth in order to reduce bone loss/re-absorbment? I am concerned that when I have the loose tooth taken out (the furthest tooth back in the lower jaw) that the forward teeth will move back and create bigger gaps to trap food, and that the bone around the tooth next to it will shrink, causing that tooth to loosen. I was hoping there was some way to stop a sort of chain reaction happening, which is what I believe has happened with other teeth I’ve had to have replace with implants.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated,  thank you.  Regards,  Chriss Davies.

Why Do My Implants Keep Failing?

April 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello, please help me with my problem. I got implants fitted 3 years ago. Since then they have continuously failed. Is there any point in me keeping them if they’re just going to keep failing? My dentist can’t understand why it keeps happening. Please let me know what you think!

I Have A Loose Implant And My Dentist Is Away. Should I Wait For Him To Return Or See Another Dentist Immediately?

April 7th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I had an implant fitted 4 years ago and it was fine until recently. However the implant now is very wobbly and I can’t eat or chew anything. Unfortunately my implant dentist is out of town until late next week. Is it okay to wait until he returns or should I see any other dentist immediately?
Please note: I had a routine dental checkup with another dentist last week and there was no problem at all.
Please give me some advice regarding the causes of the loose implant. Thank you.

Can I Have Braces With My Dental Implant?

April 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Fahey. Just a quick question. Is there any way I can have braces with my dental implant? I understand it won’t move that tooth at all but I’m worried that the braces may cause it to come loose or damage the crown which is on top of the implant. Have you known this to happen before? I would just love some general ideas before I visit my dentist for a consultation, so I know what to talk about when when I go to visit him. Thank you for your time in advance and I hope you don’t think this is a stupid question. Thanks!

After Dental Implant Treatment, I’ve Experienced Gum To Jaw Discomfort. How Long Does It Take To Heal?

December 2nd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Bohara, I could really do with some good advice from a professional such as yourself. I lost my tooth around 2 months ago, and my dentist put an implant in two weeks ago. But it was inserted a little deep, so it touched the nerve. He removed it and put a short one just 3 days after.
The numbness from bottom left teeth, gum to jaw give me discomfort. I hope it’s not permanent damage, but wonder how long will it take this nerve damage cure? Thank you in advance for any information you can provide me with.

Hi, I Had Implants A Few Years Ago, But Recently I’ve Had A Dull Pain In The Gum, Why Is This?

September 30th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Bohara, the issue I’d like to discuss with you is that I had a couple of tooth implants fitted about two years back on my lower jaw and they worked fine up until now, as for the last three weeks or so I have noticed that there is a swelling in the gum below the implant and a dull pain in the gum. The tooth implant itself does not ache and I am able to bite normally. There is no reaction to cold or hot fluids and neither is there any bleeding of any sort, so I am at odds to explain what it is that’s wrong. I would really like any information on this and will appreciate advice. Thank you.

Hi. I Am Desperate For An Implant! The Only Issue Is That I Suffer From SVT, And I’m Looking For Someone Who Can Treat Me?

September 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Fahey. I want to tell you that I am really desperate for an implant! The only issue is that I suffer from regular SVT, especially when I’m panicked/nervous which often causes me to pass out. I’m looking for someone who can try to treat a patient like me? Would it be more suitable for me to be placed under sedation? Or will that only cause further heart problems? Can you please offer me some advice? I would be very grateful if you could help. I just want to be able to smile properly again, without any gaps! Thank you, I really hope you can help me sort this out.

I Have Gum Disease And I’m Worried My Teeth May Fall Out, Can You Provide Me With Any Help Or Advice?

September 19th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Bohara. I have gum disease, which I have had treatment for over the last couple of years. After a filling some weeks ago, I had quite bad toothache, and the tooth is now about to fall out. I am devastated, as I do not want a plate fitted. I am also scared that the other teeth will fall out as well as this. I thought I was on top of the disease?
If I pay for just one tooth now, I may have to keep getting dentures which will be costing more and more, my dentist has not been very helpful in this matter either. I can’t have a bridge as I do not have many back teeth. I really hope you can help me with this enquiry, any information or advice will be greatly received. Thank You.

I Have An Implant Which Aches Occasionally. What Could Be The Cause Of This?

September 19th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, my problem is that I have an implant that aches off and on. It has ached occasionally for the last 18 months. It has been in place for four years. I need it to be used as part of a bridge since the tooth next to it is missing. The missing tooth is one of the implants that came out. There is not enough bone left to put another implant in. Do you think something is wrong with the implant?
What would make it ache in this way. It only does it occasionally. I originally had four implants and so far three of them came out. I had bone grafting as well and the grafting has now deteriorated. Thank you in advance for your reply. I hope you can help me with this.
