All On Four Implants
Six molars are gone, 2 at the top, four at the bottom only 25 years old. Are dental implants a good idea?
Absolutely!!!: If bone quantity/quality are sufficient, go with the implants. Be sure to get a CT scan to make sure no vital structures (nerves, blood vessels, and sinuses) are encroached upon. The other option is a partial denture. Yes dentures are cheaper, but at 43 years of age, you're way too young for dentures. If a bridge is an option you'll eventually loose the abutment teeth as well from recurrent decay. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers

Get opinions + pick: Every dental dilemma has multiple solutions. Do your homework, interview several dental professionals, select a treatment plan and dentist that fits your criteria and then move forward to invest in your oral health. 69 years old is still young and it is not uncommon for me to place dental implants or do orthodontics on people in their 80's.

After all the dental consultations and planning for costs of 2 implants I am thinking of cancelling the long grueling two and one-half hour visit.(?)
Not smart: If missing teeth are scheduled to be replaced, should be done ASAP. Left untreated surrounding and opposing teeth will drift and collapse into the missing teeth areas. This will result in more expensive and intensive need for care. Keep it simple and cost effective, follow your Dentist's recommendations. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
3 different ultrasound measurements all done in 1st tri. Agree within one day of each other. All were taken within 2 weeks of each other . Accuracy??
Excellent: If all agree then gestational age is higher accurate meaning you can probably pinpoint the date of conception. However, despite this, it is not as good a predictor of the exact date of delivery. Many other things can influence when the process of delivering a baby. It will likely be very close to the predicted date. ...Read more
My breasts feel full. I'm on the pill and last time having sex was in May (protected). All periods are normal and on time. Are they just growing?
Probably: Pregnancy is very unlikely if you have regular periods since you were last sexually active. It is very rare for a woman to have periods if she is pregnant, unless she is taking birth control pills. Birth control pills can rarely result in regular menstruation even when a woman is pregnant. Your breasts may feel full due to normal fluctuations in female hormones. ...Read more

Why are silicone breast implants back on the market? I remember when silicone breast implants were taken off the market back in the 1990s. It surprised me when i learned that silicone is once again being used in implants. Is the silicone used now differen
Yes: Silicone implants are back on the market because there was never a proven scientific cause relating them to any disease. They feel more natural than saline implants and are as safe. The shell and the inner gel are of much better quality than those used in the 70's and 80's. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
