I Was Meant To Wear My Retainer More. How Can I Get My Teeth Straight Again?

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I need your help. My lower left and lower right central incisors have moved back and it looks awful. I had braces for 3 years a while ago and I was meant to wear a retainer, but it slowly stopped being worn. And my teeth have slowly moved out of place. I’m 21 and I really want it sorted. Do you know how much it would roughly cost and is there a way to fix it without having a mouth full of metal? Also I would like to know the cheapest and most effective way possible to fix it. Thank you for helping me with this.

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Do I Need Braces To Rectify My Jaw Alignment Problem Or Some Other Treatment?

Thursday, April 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I hope that you can give me a helpful answer to my problem. Recently, I noticed that my lower jaw set are slightly shifting and coming in front of my top teeth. It irritates me while I’m eating or even smiling. Do I need to have braces so that the problem can be rectified or is it my jaw that is moving and not the teeth? I’m really concerned about the problem as I want it to be fixed soon. Please make me aware of the rectifying method. Is that is it my jaw that is moving? Or is it my teeth? Can it be treated, right? Thank you for your time.

I Would Like to Know If I Can Still Get Braces Even Though I Have Missing Teeth?

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I hope you can help me with a problem I have. I’m curious to know if I can wear braces even if I have an incomplete set of teeth. In my upper part I don’t have a second molar and a first premolar and in lower part I don’t have my second molar? My teeth seem to be separating from each other. I want to know because I’m set to visit my dentist and I want to know if it’s worth asking for braces. I just need to know first so that if it’s impossible I will not go to my dentist. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your reply.

I Want Other Options Than Braces To Fix My Overlapping Teeth. Do I Need Cosmetic Treatment?

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. My upper set of teeth are showing too much when I smile and I think they look big too. My lower set of teeth is overlapping. I don’t want to use braces. I also have a little problem when I close my lips because of my teeth. I lack confidence while smiling. One dentist suggested to me that I could cap on my lower 6 so that they look straight. I am a little confused. I am 23 years old. Is cosmetic dentistry a better option for me? Could you tell me how much any potential treatment would cost? Thank you in advance for your reply.

I’ve Been Quoted £4500 For Full Braces Treatment Over Two Years. Is This Correct Or Am I Being Overcharged?

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi,

I recently had a consultation for Fast Braces. After getting my OPG scan done I was told I didn’t qualify for Fast Braces and my only other realistic option would be conventional train tracks.

I’ve been quoted £4500 for the full works for a treatment plan of two years. If accepted for the finance plan, I would need to pay 30% upfront with the remainder due over the next ten months.  Based on the information I’ve given what I would like to know is, is the cost correct or am I being overcharged?  Is there anything I should be concerned about going forward?

I just want to make sure I’m making the right decision.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

I’m Filming A TV Show. If I Have The Top Brace Taken Off, Is That Going To Cause Me Any Problems?

Monday, April 7th, 2014
Q.

Hi there,

I’ve had braces since August and I am filming a TV show in America which requires me to have the top brace taken off as it’s very visible with my smile. At the moment I only have it on to close the gaps between my molars where one tooth on each side was removed to create space. The gap is just large enough for me to fit the end of my tongue in. If I have the top brace taken off is that going to cause any problems? I personally don’t care about the gaps as they’re totally invisible. My front teeth are now all straight but it’s just the small gaps they’re trying to close. What do you think?

Thank you.

What Can I Give To My Granddaughter When She Gets Her Braces Tightened?

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Patel, I hope you can help my granddaughter. What can I give to my granddaughter for the pain caused by the tightening of the brace every 4 weeks she’s in agony for 3 days after it’s done, her mouth is all swollen and she says she can’t go on with having it. She’s 15 years old. They have put blue blocks on the back teeth this time which is making it more sore. Please give us advice. She has been eating ice poles which seem to soothe the pain but this is only temporary relief. She is saying she has had enough. I hope you can help. Thank you for taking the time to listen to us.
