Is it Possible to Correct My Crowded Teeth?

Thursday, April 16th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have two to three crowded teeth, on the lower jaw next to the canine and on the upper jaw. I am 40 years old. From childhood I’ve felt that I am not confident, I don’t speak as well as others due to my teeth.
Is there any way to align my teeth at this stage so that I can earn some money by teaching for my family? I was  a good student but I’m not a good teacher. I want to be a good teacher, to relax and feel confident. Please reply, is it possible to correct this?

Hello Mark. My Teeth Are Overcrowded. I’ve Been Told It’ll Take 10 Months To Fix. Can It Be Done Any Faster?

Friday, October 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. My teeth are overcrowded. I would like straighter teeth in as little time as possible.

I have spoken with another dentists and they suggested ceramic or lingual for up to 10 months due to overcrowding. I was wondering if it’s possible to do it in less time, perhaps by filing down spaces between teeth or extractions?

I also have partially erupted wisdom teeth and was considering removing these too. Especially if it would help with straightening my teeth. Thank you!

A Plastic Surgeon Told Me My Teeth Are Affecting My Profile. Is There Any Treatment I Can Have To Fix This?

Monday, January 27th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I hope you can help me with my problem. I have a small mouth. My two front teeth squash inwards a bit. My top teeth overlap right over my bottom teeth when closed. I think that both of these things together make my profile very severely inverted at the mouth. It also makes my nose and chin appear larger than they are. A plastic surgeon explained that there is no problem with my nose and chin but it is my teeth that is causing the imbalance.   Is this something that can be done to make my profile better?

Many thanks, I look forward to reading your reply.

I Have Crowding And Would Like To Know About The Less Visible Types Of Brace Options Available?

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, I have a question I’d like to ask. I have crowding of both my upper teeth and lower and I was wondering how much it would cost for clear step braces? An average price is all I need. I just got a job with a large corporation and feel that a nice smile would help me feel better about presentations and what not. If there are any other options that are less visible that the standard metal or ceramic braces I would appreciate if you told me the options. Thanks, I look forward to your reply.

Hello Doctor. My Sister Needs Braces Before Her Wedding. She Wants Ones Which Are Less Visible. What Treatment Would You Recommend?

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013
Q.

Hello Doctor, hope you are well! I’m writing to you to know about treatment for overcrowded teeth for my sister (27 years old). She does not want to opt for metal braces as they are visible and will not give her a good look for her wedding.

Please suggest what procedure will be best for her and which is less painful, giving her better look as well.

How long would treatment go and how frequently would she need to see doctor once treatment commences. If you have any details of cost of treatment, that’ll be of great help to plan! Awaiting your response.

Cheers.

I’m Put Off By The Dental Prices To Fix My Crooked Smile. What Is The Cost Of The Six Month Smile Treatment?

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013
Q.

Hi, Dr Hughes. I have severely crooked teeth due to overcrowding, a couple are slightly twisted with one tooth pushed behind the rest, I had a consultation with a cosmetic dentist a while ago but was put off by the prices! This is causing me to suffer from a very low self esteem because I feel uncomfortable when I smile and would love to have this problem fixed. Would it be possible for me to have the six month smile treatment? I also have limited means, so I would only be able to pay monthly. How much would this cost (monthly) approximately.
Kind regards.

Thursday, July 11th, 2013
Q.

Hello i m 45 never had braces my teeth r ok but over crowding on bottom so much now that center tooth is receding as those adjacent seem to be shifting over the receding tooth can simpli5 help correct just the bottom teeth? In addition i have two cardiac issues mvp and bicuspic aortic valve both leak slighty. I premed before each dentist appt would braces open up my mouth to to much bacteria? I would like to correct bottom teeth as they make me slightly self conscious but wonder if its to risky for someone with cardiac issues. In addition is it very costly?

Is There A Surgical Alternative To Braces?

Friday, June 21st, 2013
Q.

Hi,

Im 16 years old and i still have two of my milk teeth (canines), I have gaps in all of my top teeth apart from the front two. My two adult canines have now come through my gum and are slightly covering the top of my two milk teeth canines because the adult teeth have no where else to go. My dentist has said i need a brace however it is really knocking my confidence that all of my friends have had their brace on and off and have perfect teeth and i am very aware my teeth are still not very nice. The tooth to the right of my two front teeth is pushed back from when it came down whilst a baby tooth was still there. I was wondering if there was a quick way, maybe surgery? In which i could have my milk teeth removed and adult teeth pulled down. Also a quicker way of bringing the pushed back tooth forwards?

One Of My Teeth Hides Behind Another, What Options Are Available?

Thursday, May 30th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I have a tooth that is behind my front tooth and behind what I think is a canine tooth, I have had self-esteem problems with this tooth for years because it looks like the tooth is not there, I am wanting a cosmetic treatment to solve the problem but I am not sure which treatment is most suitable for me. I am also a student so cost will be an issue. Could you possibly recommend a treatment that will work for me and that is particularly cheap? Also if you could give me an estimation of what price you think it is likely to be that would be brilliant too? Thanks, hope to hear from you soon.

How Do I Get My Overcrowded Mouth And Small Jaw Fixed?

Friday, May 3rd, 2013
Q.

Hi,

I have had problems with my teeth since around 14, but could never afford surgery or braces. I am now 28 and have trouble closing my mouth as my teeth are overcrowded and my lower jaw looks too small (like my jaws did not widen properly when I was growing). I can breathe through my nose if I use my tongue to close the gap, but cannot do this with my lips, as the teeth get in the way. I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled 3 years ago, but my teeth were already crowded by this point and have just continued to push out forwards rather than sideways. If I push out my lower jaw, my face looks much more ‘normal’, which is why I think the lower jaw may the the issue. But how would I go about getting this corrected? Or should I just get a chin implant at my age rather than go through a year or so of braces and surgery to widen the jaw? I am not signed up to a dentist at present (recently moved home), and have no idea where to start or what I would need to do. I am also very short of time due to work commitments, hence the question about a chin implant rather than jaw/teeth surgery. What would you suggest? I know what I want as the end result, but have no idea what my options are, how much it would cost or where I would need to go? I live near Bath, Somerset if that makes any difference. Many thanks.
