I'm an NHS patient. My dentist fitted partial dentures but I had to return 3 times as they felt much too tight. Each time they said "we daren't take too much off and they need to be tight" but I never had a good fit. Since then I've had extractions and teeth added tothe partial and now they do fit - they properly fit into the roof of my mouth. The problem is, the tooth next to the denture (crowned) developed a fracture, the fr...

Hello, I have a few questions. I've been having bridges for many years (I am 37 and I got my first bridge when I was 16) and unfortunately they always become loose on one side, therefore either new bridge needs to be made or my remaining teeth underneath start decaying. The dentist suggested chrome-cobalt partial dentures. As seen on the picture it will be for my upper jaw covering approx. 8 teeth. Is that a good suggestion fo...

It is a pity that you have lost teeth and require a bridge or denture –at any age. Any bridge or denture requires careful planning and extra careful professional and home oral hygiene care. Not to ensure this will cause the bridge or denture to fail. You may be able to have an implant retained (more)

Is their a difference between a orthodontic and a hospital orthodontics? My son and his friend attended the above last October and my son has to wait 1 to 2 years before his next appointment, but his friend who went to the one at the hospital is now starting his treatment. I am concerned that if we go to the hospital we would get seem to quicker? Would this be the case?

I have just visited my dentist and was informed I needed a crown on one of my lower front teeth. Told this would last for 10-15 years. I was told a porcelain crown would be the best choice but this was not covered by the NHS and would cost £400.Would be most grateful if you could confirm this please as I am very dubious unfortunately. Many thanks

I had orthodontic treatment as an adult which finished about 5 years ago.\r\n\r\nDuring the treatment I started to suffer gum recession. My orthodontist felt this was caused by poor plaque control despite my existing rigorous cleaning regime and 3 monthly visits to the hygienist. However, despite continuing my cleaning regime, the gum recession has been getting progressively worse.\r\n\r\nI’ve now seen an oral surgeon as the o...

I have two large teeth on either side of my mouth in my lower jaw and these are very filled. I would like to have these crowned on the NHS but my dentist said they are too weak to crown. I think the roots are still OK. I do not want a lower denture (already have an upper denture) and would like these two remaining teeth crowned (other teeth either side have been extracted but I can just manage to eat using these remaining two ...
