I have 1 very sharp canine tooth, it feels uncomfortable in my mouth and have even cut my lip and inside of my mouth with it. The appearance of it does not bother me, I just want it less sharp. What are your suggestions?
Dear Dr Solanki
My daughter is 14 and her teeth are yellow. She has not needed a brace has always been meticulous when cleaning her teeth. She is not aware of herself as some 14 year olds are and I have noticed a significant change over the last few years. Tonight’, finally she broke down in tears and says that her teeth are awful.
Despite reassurance she tells me several children have made nasty comments at school. Where do i start? Your support would be hugely appreciated

hi im looking to get my teeth streightened and wondered how much it would cost
I have had braces since September 2010 due correctdion of an open bite. I have only recently suffered with an open bite, the last 2 years, I am now 40 years of age. My Maxillofacial surgeon and Orthodontist are working towards me have surgery to resolve my open bite, whereby a part of my upper jaw bone is removed each side. I have had various tests to find the cause of this but have found nothing. Is the jaw surgery necessary or could my problem be related to my jaw joints not fitting together any longer and that’s where the problem has occurred?
My daughter’s orthodontist has been rude about her losing brackets, are we able to transfer to another?Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011
i am looking for some advice please.
my 13 year old daugter is registered with a orthodontist in our local area. she is now towards the end of her second year of treatment she has worn a retainer brace for a year and now as a track brace on both sets of teeth. its a year in july she has worn that one. her orthodontist is a very differcult man who i find to be very rude at times. i often wonder if its because we are nhs patients. my daughter is very careful whats she eats and only eats pasta at school as it is soft. no crusty bread, pizzas, toffees, sweets or gum as suggested. but in the last year she has lost 4 brackets from her teeth her orthodontist makes me feel like i am lying and treats us with such distaste at times and has almost had me in tears at the reception. my daughter is now saying she wont eat till its off. they says its nearly impossible for the cement to come off and if she has one more bracket come off he is going to take her brace off and discharge her. obviously this is a great worry to us as we know her teeth will return to original position and she started with a 12mm overbite 2 years ago. can he do this over something as petty as a couple of brackets coming loose. i know it must be very annoying for him at times but it seems a bit severe for what takes him 20 seconds to replace. my nephew goes to another dentist and in 6 months as lost 4 brackets and his dentist just replaced them no problem.
i would love to get her refered to another orthodontist but am told to do this she will have to start her treatment all over again. any advice you could give me i would be gratful.
