Do your teeth need to be strong and old fillings replaced in order to have invisalign braces? I had a consultaion recently and was told that I would have to pay around £500 to sort out my teeth before being able to have the invisalign brace. I can’t help but wonder whether I’l be taken advantage of. I have heard some bad feedback about this dentist but I am unsure of anywhere else that offers invisalign in Stoke on Trent. Do you know anywhere local to here that offers this service?
I had made teeth whitened at the dentist using the Zoom 2 technique in Dec 2010, I was very pleased with the results since they went 7 shades lighter, and they werent that bad in the 1st place. I was given one application of de-sentising solution and one application of whitener to use 48hrs later. Two months later my teeth are the same colour as before, I dont drink red wine, tea, coffee or smoke and was wondering if this was normal. I look after my teeth and rang the dental surgery this morning who said I should have had more whitener to use at home, could I have your advice please
Hi Dr Solanki, I had a crown on a root filled molar last year, I have been told that the tooth itself is cracked. I have recently developed a sinus on the gum and when it was x rayed my dentist said that there was some infection in the bone under the tooth and that the bone has “gone” which I found alarming to say the least. However she said there was nothing she can do and that we should wait and see what happens and in the meantime apply corsodyl gel. She seemed to suggest that it was good to have the sinus because the infection can drain. I have had the same dentist for a while but I don’t feel confident in this instance and would be very grateful if you could comment and in particular address the following questions. Is it safe to leave an infection which is affecting the bone in this way? Could the infection clear up of its own accord (I have been under stress recently following the sudden death of my mum and wondered if this had contributed)? Is it safe to have a broken area on the gum particularly given the evidence on heart disease and gum problems? If I lose the tooth I will consider an implant but is the damage to the bone likely to prevent this as an option? I would be very grateful if you could advise me. Many thanks. Kind regards.

Two different dentists have advised two different methods of tooth correction, how do I know which one to pick?Saturday, December 4th, 2010
My Husband has fairly small stumpy teeth which have a space between each tooth. They are also discoloured. To correct this 2 dentists within the same practice advised of different approaches to rectifying this both pricey. My questions are: How do you judge best advice if you are advised of 2 different methods of correction? Also how do you know a dentists true capabilities especially when we hear of dentists who were fakes?
