Can I Get Free Braces Because Of My Circumstances?

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013
Q.

Hi

I’m wondering if you can help me. I’m 30 and therefore I assume that I am too old for standard free dental treatment but my front teeth overlap and I have a 10mm overbite eye teeth that stick out and my lower teeth are also overcrowded! It’s a bit of a nightmare to be perfectly honest with you because I have trouble eating properly. It is beginning to affect me psychologically also as I look in the mirror and just hate my smile, so it deeply affects self confidence! Are there any circumstances under which I would get braces for free on NHS? I have taken the time out to do my research and looked into private treatment but can’t afford it at all unfortunately. The figures involved are simply too much.

Can My Niece Get Braces On The NHS For Free?

Thursday, January 31st, 2013
Q.

My niece is 31 years old and is in receipt of income support. She is stunning but is very conscious of her very crooked teeth. Would she be entitled to a brace on the nhs as her problem is making her really unhappy. She has always worked but only part time but now has a young daughter and this is the first time she has ever claimed benefits. .
She is becoming more and more conscious and paranoid that people are looking at her. She is not the most confident person in the world and never ever smiles when having photos taken as she won’t let anyone see her teeth. I personally think it is now affecting her mental state and there is nothing that we can say to her to boost her confidence. She has always looked after her teeth and they are brilliant white although she does only attend a dentist when it is absolutely necessary. She currently wears a tooth shield as she has been experiencing severe pain but shows no signs of having any actual dental problem so has had to have this made as they think it is caused by clenching her teeth together or by grinding them. Please try to help us to make her smile her beautiful smile like she used to do when she was young and carefree

What Should I Do About My Impacted Tooth?

Friday, January 11th, 2013
Q.

Ive a horizontally impacted tooth (48) with dilaceration of the root. I dont want to get it extracted. Im myself studying to be a dentist in Bangalore,India. This has caused mild lower crowding as well as increased midline diastema ( i have diastema since long time, as well as lateral spacing) the lower crowding has caused an increase in the midline diastema. My question is, is there any way by which i dont have to get my tooth impacted and not have orthodontic treatment either? I like the amount of gaps between the teeth that ive presently. I dont want to reduce it nor i want it to increase. I dont have any pain or infection what so ever. All my wisdom teeth are impacted. Ive an opg image but dont know how to attach it to this question. Kindly help me :)
