Teeth implants gone wrong

Common Questions and Answers about Teeth implants gone wrong


Avatar n tn Then you would have gone through all of this for no reason. Implants are like a second chance to permanent teeth. I hope you make a good choice. Not to be ugly or anything, but a lot of the younger dentist are more agressive and they are ready to jump in and do some of the latest technology. Please let me know if I can help anymore! I love teeth! Good luck and let me know what you decide!
460185 tn?1326077772 After having some of my back upper teeth and one front tooth extracted, my other teeth began to "shift". It has effected my speech. I sound like I'm drunk and I'm so tired of being labelled drunk when I don't even drink. Does anyone know anything about dental implants for my front teeth. I'll probably have to have the other one removed if I do get them. All this is the result of gum disease and I couldn't afford to go to a periodontists.
Avatar n tn In June I had implants for dentures. The implants are made of titianium. I have had a rash and itch since the third week of the implants. I have never had an allergy to anything before. Could this be the cause of the itching? I have had a blood test but did not do an allgery test. Is this soimething I need to do?

Avatar n tn when the dentist pulled the tooth,the bone was thin behind it and now i have 2 teeth possibly 3 teeth that are loose. it is painful and very hard to eat due to my loose teeth hitting my bottom teeth even though i chew on my left side. what she be done at this point?
Avatar n tn My son is 16 and will be starting his 5 year of having braces placement. Several months ago he developed a cavity although small still needed filled. Then a month or so after that he complained of severe pain in the same area (upper right side) took him back to the dentist he did xrays and said he couldn't see anything wrong.
Avatar n tn Hi, You wouldn't have implants to replace wisdom teeth. I had my four upper front teeth removed and had implants placed right after. I have been using a removable metal partial while the implants heal. I do feel that the partial was irritating the nerve in my lower jaw by hitting those teeth. My dentist made a small adjustment and the pain has greatly lessened. I still get a few little electric like jolts but nothing like before.
Avatar n tn Hm. I understand. If there's no health reason to replace it and its purely cosmetic, then its up to you on how you feel about that. I'm pretty sure that the dentist can match them fairly closely to whats existing on the other side. I think he's just informing you that it MAY not match and trying to keep your expectations fairly realistic.
1012542 tn?1313354880 s they would be your best choice if you could scrape up the money. implants are much more like your natural teeth both in looks and in functionality. they also prevent bone loss. dentures where cheaper greatly reduce your chewing power. they also encourage bone loss. then there is the whole comport issue. implants feel like real teeth where denture can move around and are constantly in need of adjustment.

1313145 tn?1273789472 It is not your imagination as I experienced the same feeling. I had several teeth pulled and had implants because I has what is referred to as milk teeth. They were brittle and often broke off. It is caused from a lack from calcium when my birth mother was pregnant with me. I had alot of toothaches when I was young and when I got in my teens my Dad had them replaced with implants. Sorry for all that info:) But I felt the same way, It will get better though.
634649 tn?1230854293 I used to joke about it when I was growing up tha the two teeth on either side of my front teeth where "baby teeth" becasue they where so small... Considering I have always been afraid of the dentist I hadn't gone for over 10 years. My teeth are in good condition and I hadn't had any dental pain. Now that I am 21, and have my own health insurance, I wanted to get checked out from doctors and dentists...
Avatar f tn Another popular choice are thin whitening strips that are portable and easy to use. Teeth whitening strips are small plastic strips with a peroxide-gelled side that sticks to your teeth. Though whitening strips are mostly safe and easy to use.
Avatar f tn He also stated that I needed to have both my canine teeth done (one is real,the other is a crown) in order to attach a temporary bridge while my implants are healing (since last March, I have had a flipper which has worked fine). Needless to say, I am very upset with my dentist & oral surgeon, as it would see to me that it was very poor planning on their part in the very beginning of this whole thing.
Avatar f tn Amaris, my daughter, has only 8 teeth total right now, with three molars someday to appear, and two permanent teeth on the top middle. The resdont have any adult teeth. I would have to say the teeth issue is interesting. Thanks for your input..
Avatar n tn I have one advice, i am sure they are going to do implants for her, she has to make sure she is not having osteoporosys, if she does, her bone transplant, and implants are going to fail. Especialy, if she lost bone around her teeth, because of osteoporosys. She has to get a bone density test first, before anything is done in the mouth.
Avatar m tn How many years does an implants are good to say and are they replaceable? This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Dental-Health/teeth-whitening/show/2179525">teeth whitening</a>.
Avatar m tn A visit with my dentist let me know just how fast the bone had dissolved from that first infection. I had to have four teeth replaced by implants. Not only was this a long process but an expensive one and one that I could have completely avoided if I had gone to the dentist when my tooth first hurt. PLEASE make an appt and have yours checked. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have a somewhat complicated question (so bear with me) about which route I should go for cosmetic dental work. I am 29, in good general health, and most of my teeth are in good shape, except for my top 4-6 teeth, which have always been stunted and over time have eroded away and chipped, the top two scarcely have any exposed tooth at all. I attribute this mostly to genetics, as my parents had similar problems (they had theirs pulled).
Avatar n tn Crowns left spaces between teeth allowing food stuck in there. Saw new DDS and he did full mouth x-rays and told to have my upper teeth pulled and have implants. I saw the film where former DDS filled teeth and placed crowns and it was all black (decay) I was told decay under the crown and gums was hopeless to do anything to save these teeth but extract and implants. I saw a Protodontist. He wanted 30,000.00 and gave me a form for low interest payment plan.
Avatar n tn I love my implants. The one thing about bone loss is that your gum cannot attach unless there is bone below it. If you have a gummy smile good aesthetics can be a problem. There is always a gum graft if it is needed, though. Your idea sounds great. I would caution you on one thing, though. In order for implants to be successful, they need healthy teeth and bone on each side of them. If your teeth are starting to twist, it usually indicates sufficient bone loss to allow them to do so.
Avatar m tn First I went to a dental school (chair professor) and he recommended I do 2 implants (I have 2 missing teeth next to each other) because they don't do anything under 10MM and a longer implants will not be stable alone. The cost would be $15,000 for 2 implants, bone graft and sinus life. I went to a 2nd different private dentist who said the school was wrong and he did the successful implant for $4500 with no lift or graft.
Avatar n tn The tooth buds are not present and therefore there is no permanent teeth present. If the teeth adjacent to the deciduous teeth(baby teeth) are good I would prefer that you have implants placed if possible. I do not think cutting down good teeth is the way to go in this day and age with the predictability of implants.
Avatar f tn Since she has to get implants regardless, I asked her if maybe they can place 3-4 implants to replace the loose lower teeth and the ones that fell out. I know implants are more expensive, but the price of 3-4 with crowns might be about the same as the cost of teeth extractions, root canals, dentures, etc + the oral surgeon's cost.. If the infected teeth aren't bothering her or compromising her nutritional status, can't she just leave them alone for now?
Avatar n tn As he gets older, some minor cosmetic work may need to be done to make his teeth appear larger as he will continue to grow but his teeth will have a baby like appearance. If there are problems with them, they may need to be replaced with dental implants or dentures. Dental implants are titanium screws which are placed into the jaw and crowns/caps are placed on top. These implants probably wouldn't be placed in until his jaw has stopped growing or is somewhat stable I imagine.
