How Much Does Simpli5 Cost?

Monday, March 2nd, 2015
Q.

Hi there. My two front upper teeth are a little crooked. The left is overlapping the right tooth. The rest of my teeth are pretty straight upper and lower. It’s only the front two that are bothering me. I’ve been for a consultation at my local dentist and was recommended six month braces, but I want to avoid wired braces. After looking around I’m considering Simpli5 and wanted your opinion and a rough idea how much they would cost. Thank you.

What Treatment is Required for Teeth That Stick Out?

Monday, February 16th, 2015
Q.

Hello there. I have two front teeth sticking out like vampire teeth, so what treatment will I require? Will I have to get them pulled out? Will I have a twin blocker or what? Please do not say to consult your doctor, just tell me from your experience what you think.

Also what will it cost to get invisible braces? I am under 18.  How long will it take for my teeth to settle down? Thank you.  Please reply as soon as possible since I am very scared of getting braces.

I Recently Tried Home Whitening Treatment Which Has Left White Spots On My Teeth. How Can I Get Rid Of These Spots?

Thursday, August 7th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have a couple of questions for you. I recently tried a home whitening kit that has left white spots on my teeth, I really do not wish to continue the treatment, how can I get I’d of these spots? And I’m looking to straighten my teeth, they are not awful but my two front teeth are starting to cross and I don’t want braces, I’ve heard of clear step but roughly how much is it? And is there any other cheap options to get straight teeth? Thanks.

My Overbite Needs Correcting As I Have TMJ Disorder. Are Invisible Braces Able To Correct My Narrow Arch Problem?

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Gambroudes,

I am 28. I have an overbite (from sucking my thumb as a child) and slightly overcrowded mouth. My teeth don’t meet each other properly and cause me problems that similar to TMJ disorder such as neck problems etc.

I want to see an orthodontist, can you recommend one in South East area? Are they able to use invisible braces to correct my problem? Can braces correct a very narrow dental arch by making it wider or would braces only be able to push my front teeth backwards a bit?

Thank you for your time.

Is It Possible To Get A Rough Price On How Much Invisible Braces Cost?

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew, I am looking to have braces but don’t really like the thought of the train track braces but I have seen the Invisible kind. Do I need to speak to my dentist first before I go to my orthodontist?
Also is it possible to send a picture of the teeth and get a rough price?
They’re not that bad, it’s just the two front teeth and two at the bottom are not perfectly straight? My dentist says I don’t need them but I would be happier when I know my teeth are perfect and I’m willing to pay the price? I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

I Am Not A Suitable Candidate For Invisalign And Will Need Train Tracks For About 18 Months. Is This Something You Can Assist With?

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014
Q.

I have a severe over bite (where the first set of teeth overlap the bottom set completely) because of this both sets of teeth go inwards. My teeth are generally straight however the problem is that both sets need pushing out and my over bite needs to be addressed. I have previously been advised (about 2 years ago) that I am not suitable for Invisalign and that I will indeed need train tracks for about 18 months – 2 years. Is this something you can assist with? I am happy to have train tracks if needed, however I do not want them to be overly visible if that’s okay? Ideally I would like to get booked in ASAP to start treatment. I look forward to your response.
Kind Regards.

Can I Have Bone Grafting Treatment If I Am Just About To Go Ahead With Invisalign?

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013
Q.

Hi, I am just making a small enquiry. I’m hoping you can shed some light…I have bone loss from periodonitis and have many black triangles, some of which are too deep to fill with alloderm. Can this bone grafting technique be used to reduce the pockets and black triangles so that I can then follow up or at the same time have alloderm treatent to improve my smile? I am soon to undergo invisalign to correct my crooked teeth so I also wanted to know whether I could have bone grafting/alloderm treatment at the same time as my invisalign treatment? I know it’s quite a lot to ask, I’m just make general enquiries before I speak to my dentist about all of this.  Thank you very much for your time.

I am worried about having my teeth recontoured

Friday, April 19th, 2013
Q.

Please help. I am worried to death about having some teeth recontoured for an Invisalign brace. I have been told that some of my teeth will be filed so that this can create space to move the teeth. I’m worried that it will hurt, what it will look like. Am i going to have horrible gaps in my teeth? Does that look unattractive I’m very scared. Will it ruin the health of my teeth? Apparently it is needed for the Invisalign brace but I don’t want any gaps in my teeth.

Are Quick Fix Invisible Braces The Way To Go For Me?

Friday, April 12th, 2013
Q.

I have recently had a consultation for a clear brace (similar to invisalign but it is the dental practices’ own ‘in house’ version) which focuses on aligning the front x6 teeth. I was told it would work within 22 weeks, and requires the teeth to be polished with an abrasive floss to shave a minimal amount from the teeth in order to create space for the teeth to move. My two front teeth are crossing over slightly which is the reason I would like the brace.

My concern is whether such speedy treatment poses any risks? As a teenager I had very extensive orthdontic treatment & am just very wary of this seemingly quick fix. In your opinion do you think there will be long term issues with this type of treatment – will the enamel be affected if the teeth are ‘shaved’, leaving me with sensitive teeth? And are the teeth not too brittle to be moved so quickly? (I am 30 years old). It sounds similar to invisalign but not as trustworthy.
Please advise, thank you

Are clear braces definitely unnoticeable?

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012
Q.

Hi there, i am getting braces very shortly. According to my mum she said that he said they will not be noticeable? is this clear braces i only have 3-4 teeth max to correct.

I am a bit confused as you may be aware i am 17 and quite scared to be honest i must admit i just need some clear basic advice from a professional :-)

Many thanks for your answers i appreciate everyones contribution!

I have heard they at at least £3000 clear ones but why so much money… My dentist said i will have a 6 month treatment to 8 month treatment which is good i guess a good sign indeed… but i have also heard if you have a fixed brace you get clear ones free or something? ( i may be wrong there i dont know for 100% sure!
