I Am Nervous About Having Dental Surgery To Fix My Crossbite. Would Veneers Be Another Options?

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013
Q.

I am 44 years old and have a narrow upper jaw and crossbite, despite having had braces in my 20’s. I am thinking about having SARPE surgery and Lingual braces but am nervous about the surgery and having to live with a metal expander for 3 months followed by a year of orthodontics. Ideally I would like to improve my bite but I am not sure if it is worth it at my age. The main thing that bothers me is my front teeth stick out a bit. Could cosmetic dentistry (say in the form of veneers) offer some improvement? Thanks.

I’ve 9 Missing Teeth As They Didn’t Come Through After My Baby Teeth. What Treatment Should I Get And How Much Would It Cost?

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013
Q.

Hi,

I’m 27 years old and hate my teeth. I’ve always had 9 teeth missing, they just never came through after my baby teeth fell out. I also have one baby tooth remaining.

I’m wondering what work would need to be done to correct my teeth? The top ones are worse than the bottom ones. It’s not like I have massive gaps between my teeth, just that they do not look aligned properly, like other peoples. Some of my teeth are different lengths or appear at different angles too.

I’m also wondering a rough cost and how long do they last for? Is it painful and would I need to get them re-done at a later date?

There Seems To Be A Gap Forming Between My Teeth, After I’ve Had Braces Treatment. What Should I Do?

Monday, November 25th, 2013
Q.

Recently there seems to be a gap forming between my top middle front two teeth. It’s really small at the moment but it really annoys me. I’m 21 years old and I have had braces for 2.5 years since the age of 13.

How much does it cost to fix the gap? And also what’s the best home method to whiten teeth. I heard salt water is an option, is there anything else that I could do? Thank you for answering my questions.

I’ve Been Quoted £2,600 For Invisible Braces. Would That Cost Be About Right?

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013
Q.

Hello. I would like one of my lower front teeth to go back in line with the rest as it is indented. I have been told that I could wear an invisible brace (removable) for 6 month at a cost of £2,600. Would that cost be about right? Also, my husband has the same problem except his problem tooth is on the top set of teeth.  His tooth has protruded slightly more than usual over the last couple of months and so he too has been told that an invisible brace could be fitted and would solve the problem in 6 months at a cost of £2,600. Please give some advice. Thank you, Dr Shaffie.

I’ve Wanted To Straighten My Teeth For A Long Time. Which Discreet Braces Are Most Suitable?

Friday, November 8th, 2013
Q.

Hi. I’ve wanted to straighten my front
teeth for a long time as one slightly crosses over the other.
However I wanted a brace fitted for the shortest possible time and something clear so no one can tell I’m wearing one.
Which type of brace would you recommend?
I’ve looked at lingual and simpli5 but I’m unsure as to whether either would
be suitable as my front teeth cross at the bottom. Many thanks, it’s much appreciated.

People Have Often Commented On The Placement Of My Teeth. What Can Be Done To Straighten Them?

Friday, November 1st, 2013
Q.

Hi, I have a crooked a single crooked tooth on the top row of teeth right at the front. I want to know what can be done to fix the problem, it isn’t a major issue but really knocks my confidence when smiling or talking to individuals face to face? I have mulled over the thought of what kind of straightening needs to be done but do not know what to do about it. It has been this way for a few years and my peers and acquaintances have told me that over time the tooth will straighten itself, it has not done so. It has been reoccurring as a question I have been asking myself. People have often noticed and commented on the placement and it has really knocked my confidence. I have been to the dentist a lot for check ups every 6 months as standard, they have said that I do not need a brace so there is nothing I can think of doing but to seek cosmetic advice/help.

I Have Recently Got A Removable Retainer After Wearing A Brace For Six Years. My Teeth Are Wobbly, Should I Be Worried?

Thursday, October 31st, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Shaffie, I’m wondering if you can help me. I had braces for six years and removed them about three years ago.  I had them removed and put in a permanent retainer (a wire behind my teeth). My bottom teeth shifted forward (Class III underbite) so they removed the retainer and gave me a removable retainer to wear for a few months. However, it makes me feel like my teeth are very wobbly and loose. Is this normal or should I be concerned? Is there any risk that my teeth are so weak they could fall off if I bite something too hard? Any information would be great, thanks.

I Had A Brace Fitted A Few Years But Now The Gap Is Coming Back Between My Front Teeth. Please Offer Some Advice?

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. The problem I would like advising on is that I had a brace fitted when I was younger about twelve years ago to fix big gaps in my teeth as I have three missing wisdom teeth which have never grown through. After braces I had a permanent brace fitted behind my teeth to keep teeth together but now the gap is coming back between my two front teeth. It looks horrible and you can see the wire between my two front teeth. It has made me very self conscious. Please could you advise me on what can be done? Do you know why this has happened? Thank you, I hope you can help me.

Hello Doctor. My Sister Needs Braces Before Her Wedding. She Wants Ones Which Are Less Visible. What Treatment Would You Recommend?

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013
Q.

Hello Doctor, hope you are well! I’m writing to you to know about treatment for overcrowded teeth for my sister (27 years old). She does not want to opt for metal braces as they are visible and will not give her a good look for her wedding.

Please suggest what procedure will be best for her and which is less painful, giving her better look as well.

How long would treatment go and how frequently would she need to see doctor once treatment commences. If you have any details of cost of treatment, that’ll be of great help to plan! Awaiting your response.

Cheers.
