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

i had tooth extractions and orthodontic treatment 10 years ago is it possible to open up the gaps again for dental implants?

Friday, February 1st, 2008
Q.
I had orthodontic treatment 10 years ago, and made it quite clear at the outset that I did not want extractions. The ass who treated me decided that as I was a child, and my treatment was being paid by the NHS, he would send me to have extractions anyway because my teeth were slow to move. So slow, in fact, that he had the audacity to accuse me of not wearing my headgear enough at a time when, unless I wanted to wear the wretched device to school, there were literally no more hours in the day I could be wearing it. The gaps in my upper jaw, 10 years later, are still open wide enough to insert my thumb nail. The front teeth in my bottom jaw are twisted and have worn in an odd pattern which enables then to goudge lumps from underneath my tongue if I do not pay attention while eating. I hate my teeth so much now that smiling open mouthed is something that does not happen. Ever. Would there be any way the gaps could be opened back up for dental implants, or even a bridge? I was so upset at having the teeth removed that I still have them at home. What can be done to fix my bottom jaw? Is it too late to get recourse against this man? I hate my teeth; I hate the man who did this to me; and I really hope you have some advice to offer because I literally cannot go on with my teeth in the state they are in.

Does the Inman Aligner work on teeth that have been crowned previously

Friday, February 1st, 2008
Q.
Hi there, i was wondering about the inman aligner brace. does this work if you have front crowns already fitted on your teeth. i have protruding front teeth and wondered if these crowns get damaged in the process.

What are my options my teeth stick out ?

Thursday, January 31st, 2008
Q.
Hello Dr Riten, i wonder if you can help me with my problem. I have teeth that stick out a little bit and i am not sure what to do about them I have read there are a few different ways such as invisible braces inman aligner braces and veneers. I dont want one of these hollywood smiles because i think they just look too fake and so i want my smile to look natural but also good. Although finances are an issue the way I look at it is that every one i meet sees my teeth its more important than buying a new car and I believe you can now get your teeth done on finance just like when buying a new car? Thank you for time to read this. J.N.

Thursday, January 31st, 2008
Q.
Since i was a little girl ive had a gap at the front of my teeth at the top. due 2 sucking my thumb the gap has got bigger over the years and my teeth are very crooked. during my teens i had a brace which i just kept taking out so that was no good. im 23 and i have no confidence when speaking to people. is there any solution ie; have a tooth put in there or take the 2 front ones out and have them replaced by 2 straight closed teeth? or is my only option to have a brace?
