ive been wearing braces since I was 17

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009
Q.
Hi, I’m 19 and have been wearing braces since i was 17.i used to have overbite over 5mm before wearing braces and it has reduced to 5mm. My orthodontist recommended me to wear the head gear, which i did but not for 12 hrs everyday as required. I didn’t wear it continuously because i was always out of home everyday, and only able to wear it few hours during sleep. I’ve stopped wearing the head gear for a few months now, and wish not to wear it again. My teeth are now straight but i still have the overbite. I’m not regretting because of not wearing the head gear, as it was very uncomfortable, but it is better the wear invisalign which i wish to wear. Is it possible for me to wear invisalign once my braces are removed?

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009
Q.
Hi,. I got fixed a crown by a dentist for my front teeth 3 years back and for the past two or three days I am feeling sensitive to cold and I can feel whatever I ingest that it feels like it goes inside the crown and I just checked if it is loose but it is not, I am really scared, how will the doctor remove the old one it is so strong and hard inside and by removing it does my teeth get loosened, lots of things going on my mind terribly scared as I am not yet married, I got this done for asthetic purpose now that feeling did a wrong thing. Please I need to know from you that what should be done? right now having a all ceramic crown, does it need to be x-rayed, removed and cleaned, need your sincere advise regarding this. Regards

will i get a temporary replacement the same time as teeth are extracted

Monday, March 16th, 2009
Q.
Hello, i am hoping you may be able to reassure me. i am due to have my 1st appointment in a long while as been on NHS waiting list for 3yrs. I anticipate i may have to have my top 2 central teeth extracted, as i have a gap each side of them. If they need to be extracted in order for a partial denture/bridge to be fitted, will i have a temporary replacement the same time as extraction, as i don’t want to be left with 4 gaps along my top row, especially as i have been told it can be up to 6months before a permanent denture/bridge is fitted due to the healing process. thankyou.

i would like to know the cost of replacing my teeth with dentures

Monday, March 16th, 2009
Q.
I have always had trouble with my teeth and I would like to enquire about the cost and precedure involved in removing my own teeth and the many fillings, including gold ones which look ugly and replace them with dentures. My lower jaw teeth are worst as I had had trouble as a child with overcrowding and had teeth removed to make way. I wonder if you could advise me.

Please advise me

I have a fairly major problem with my front teeth

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009
Q.
Hi, I have a fairly major problem with my front teeth. Due to over crowding, I believe my Canine tooth is pushed in front of the other teeth and positioned weirdly in my gums, higher up in my gums than my other teeth. Due to the extra space left, my left central incisor is positioned a few millimeters past the center, and my right front tooth is about 1 to 2 millimeters apart. I could easily take a picture to show you exactly what I mean, but my question is basically, is there any cosmetic solutions to making my front teeth at least appear straight, and without the gap in my front teeth, and should I consider getting my Canine tooth taken out. The bottom of the canine tooth is roughly at the same level as the gum line that meets the teeth in the normal teeth, so it’s fairly bad. I work in a line of work where wearing braces is not acceptable, so that isn’t an option even though I wish it was. I personally do not mind braces, but again, nothing I can do because of my line of work.
