I have had two teeth taken out will invisalign close the gaps

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008
Q.
When I was younger I had two teeth taken out at the side of my mouth so that my teeth could be straightened the gaps have still not closed up and do not look very nice when I smile from the side so I rarely smile. Could you advise me of the best option that is available to me, I am reluctant to have the implants, was wondering if the invisible braces would close the gaps up, and finish off what the previous dentist should have done. thanks V

I have a large genetic gap between my front teeth will invisalign work?

Sunday, February 10th, 2008
Q.
I have a large gap in-between my two front teeth. This gap is genetic, it runs in the family and while I don’t want to close the gap completely I would like to reduce the size of it. Would Invisalign be able to reduce the size of my gap?

Im not happy with Straightness of my teeth

Sunday, February 10th, 2008
Q.
Hi, I am 21 and am not happy with the ‘straightness’ of my teeth. I was offered braces at a younger age, for which i opted, only to have a panic attack in the chair at my first tooth removal. I have two ‘missing’ lateral incisors at the top, and instead a ‘peg’ grew to replace only one of them. My dentist proposed to remove this peg, my two lower 1st premolars and put braces on both my upper and lower teeth. After treatment my upper canines would have been filed down so as to appear more incisor-like and not so pointy. There is no sign of any wisdom teeth. I very much want my teeth straightening, but at this age I do not want obvious braces. Please could you tell me, what ‘invisible’ treatments are there suitable for me? And at what financial cost? I am confident I can cope with extractions now! Many thanks

can I use my invisalign for retainers they are very stained ?

Friday, February 1st, 2008
Q.
I Am wearing invisalign to straighten my teeth. The bottom one are still not straight after about 9 months but the invisalign are finished for the bottom ones. I have been asked to keep my last set on invisalign in all the time for the next 3 months and then I will have to have a brace if they have not moved. The invisalign look very battered and stained although I have cleaned them regularly and I am thinking of stopping wearing them as my teeth look discoloured. Can you tell me if they are designed to be worn for this lenght of time. Thank you.

I have crooked teeth and dont want veneers can I have invasalign or Inman Aligner?

Friday, February 1st, 2008
Q.
I am a 42 woman who takes pride in her appearance and am now just about able to afford some cosmetic dentistry. I had several extractions as a child to try to reduce overcrowding. I have a crooked tooth at the top front which I would like to correct plus uneven teeth ( about 4 teeth) at the bottom front. I don’t want porcelain veneers as I don’t like the idea of me losing my identity for a ‘perfect’ smile – I don’t want perfection, just to straighten my own, much loved but flawed teeth! I have heard of Inman Aligners and Invasalign but am nervous of taking that first step as I don’t like the idea of tampering with healthy teeth. Also I would be worried that improvements i.e. through braces, wouldn’t be permanent. Can you advise/reassure me?? Thanks R

My orthdontist says i need to have my teeth pulled out will invisible braces be suitable ? My teeth are not over crowded

Thursday, January 31st, 2008
Q.
Hello Dr Patel, I have teeth that generally protrude out a little and need to be brought ‘back in’ and one tooth which needs to be pushed out. I was told by my orthodontist that i would need to have a couple of teeth removed to fit a wire brace (which i have opted not to have), does this mean that the treatment will not be suitable for me? My mouth is not overly crowded with teeth and i am reluctant to pull a healthy tooth out. Also will using invisible braces require regular check ups? I live in a rural area and fear my nearest facility for this treatment will be some distance away.

Invisalign for protruding teeth …can you cut my front teeth?

Thursday, January 31st, 2008
Q.
Dear Dr Solanki, Hi I am thinking of getting invisalign braces. The problem with my teeth are that I have protruding teeth, ‘buck teeth’. The two front teeth are quite big in comparision to my mouth’s remaining teeth. Would it be possible when straightening the teeth, that the two protruding teeth can be cut? Looking at images on the net, is seems that when the protruding teeth are straightened, they will overlap the bottom teeth, disproprtionately. Many thanks. B.K.

I dont want a mouth full of metal …do clear braces work as well?

Thursday, January 31st, 2008
Q.
Dear Dr Patel, I was offered braces as a teenages as i have ‘fangs’ on my top row of teeth and a very uneven bottom set, but told by an orthodontist I didn’t really need them. My regular dentist has never let this go however, and I am starting to agree. I am 21 and don’t want to have a mouth full of metal when I finish Uni and apply for city based jobs in London. The gaps between my top and bottom rows are too noticable to me in photos though and I would like to do something about them. I have read about the clear braces that are like a thin mouthgard and also about the traintracks that fit around the back of the teeth. But do these actually work as well and are they, along with the regular check ups, hidiously expensive? Thanks!

I have crooked teeth and baby milk teeth is my case too severe for Invislign I dont want metal braces or could I have full Veneers?

Thursday, January 31st, 2008
Q.
Hi Dr Patel. I am a 20 year old woman and am serverely distressed at the state of my teeth. I have very overcrowded teeth on the bottom rown, and at the top I have incisors either side of the middle 4 which are high above the level of the other teeth, along with this I also have 2 ‘milk teeth’ which are sitting behind new teeth which have never fallen out! I work in a very social position and do not wish to have a mouth of metal braces to be seen for all. I have read up about invisalign and am v interested in it , and am just not sure whether my case is too severe!!I would if not consider full cosmetic veneers, but again I am not sure whether the only option I have will be wire braces. please help.
