My Two Front Teeth Stand Out More Than My Others. They Sometimes Cause Me Pain. What Can I Do?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi there, Dr Gambroudes. My upper front two teeth stick out a lot more than my other ones and they are significantly bigger whilst also being bent. I’m 20 years old now so I doubt there’s much chance they’ll fix themselves now. I think they’ve been like this for quite a while now but its only begun annoying me in the past year as I’ve become really self conscious. I also suffer from pain in these two teeth on and off. If I wanted to go about fixing this what are my options? I really suffer from a lack of self confidence as I’ve become more and more aware about these problems. Thanks.

I Have Decided To Switch To Private Treatment To Align My Teeth. Do You Know Of Any Clinics That Could Help Us?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I’m 18 and have been wearing braces for the past three years now under the NHS. There hasn’t been much progress with their treatment which is why I’ve decided to opt to seek private treatment. I have my two lateral incisors missing at the top. I was wondering what kind of treatment options I would have and if so what clinics within the UK could provide this. I would like to sort this issue out as soon as possible. I hope to hear from you soon.
Thank you.

My Teeth Are Crowded And I’m Uncomfortable With The Way My Smile Looks. Should I Have Braces?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. 12 years ago I lost an upper tooth when I was young. My other teeth came together to fill the gap but know I can’t smile in front of other people as I don’t feel comfortable with the way it looks. Now one upper tooth is too big compared to the others which are small. I think I need a gap filling through the use of braces. Can you tell me if this would help? I have never been to a dentist so I don’t know what to do really. Please provide me with information about what should I do. Thank you very much.

Which Treatment Would Be Best To Correct An Open Bite. Braces Or Dental Implants?

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I have an open bite or fish bite type of teeth. My lower jaw teeth and the upper set has a significant gap when I close my jaws together.
The two front teeth are excessively displaced outward.
Either I should take those front two out teeth and implant artificial teeth in the alignment of the other front teeth or use fixed braces to solve my problem.
Either way I need to take two of my teeth out, and I guess implanting artificial will be quicker than having fixed braces for a long period. Which would you suggest?

My 14 Year Old Has Two Protruding Front Teeth. Could You Tell Me The Best Treatment For My Son?

Friday, October 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. My son, who is 14 years old, has his front 2 teeth protruding forward. These teeth sometimes rest and sit on his lower lip. He’s still got 3 milk teeth left to come out, 1 on the top set and 2 from bottom set. His bottom teeth are fine with no gaps in them. His front two teeth look so bad.  He had perfect milk teeth but ever since his permanent teeth have come through, they’ve just fallen out of alignment. Could you tell me the best treatment for my son and how long he has to wait for this? Thanks.

Hello Mark. My Teeth Are Overcrowded. I’ve Been Told It’ll Take 10 Months To Fix. Can It Be Done Any Faster?

Friday, October 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. My teeth are overcrowded. I would like straighter teeth in as little time as possible.

I have spoken with another dentists and they suggested ceramic or lingual for up to 10 months due to overcrowding. I was wondering if it’s possible to do it in less time, perhaps by filing down spaces between teeth or extractions?

I also have partially erupted wisdom teeth and was considering removing these too. Especially if it would help with straightening my teeth. Thank you!

My Front Teeth Are Longer Than My Lips. What Can I Do About This? I Have No Confidence.

Friday, October 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. My two front teeth are longer than my lips. This makes me open my whole mouth wide just to say a single word. I have little to no confidence or self esteem. My teeth make me look ugly. What can I do about this? I’ve been browsing around and I’ve got some information about veneers, dental bonding and surgery, etc. I am still trying to get a proper advise on what to do. I hope I would get some advice from yourself? Thank you.

My Oral Health Has Deteriorated and Caused Gap In My Smile. Would Six Month Smiles Orthodontic Treatment Help?

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello,
the reason I e-mailed you today is because I would like to ask you some specific questions regarding the gaps in my teeth.

My teeth were always decent however in recent years (especially the last six years) my oral health deteriorated. The conditions of my teeth were always in my mind but I was too ashamed to visit a dentist (or orthodontic). It has now come to the point where it is affecting my everyday life and I can't ignore it.

Altogether I have 10 gaps (four upper and six lower), formerly it was seven but the other three developed because I made use of gap teeth elastic bands which have brought no benefits. My largest teeth gap is approximately 0.35 cm large, four of them are 0.2 cm big and the rest are easily fixable.

I had a look through the website and came across '6-Month Smiles: orthodontic treatment in six months' and was wondering if you would recommend me this option. In addition I also wanted to ask you if you were able to give me an estimation of long this procedure may take.

Thank you.

Would You Recommend Using Tooth Gap Bands For Any Of Your Patients? I Need To Fix The Gap In My Smile.

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. Would you recommend any of your patients to use: Teeth Gap Bands? For closing a gap in the front of someone’s teeth. I seen this website online, and it mentioned a less expensive way to close your gap and I was wondering if you think it would be safe to use.  I’ve read some reviews on their website and I want to try it because I will not be able to afford braces because my insurance doesn’t cover it. I would say my gap is about 2 inches wide and I want to get it closed. Thank you for your time.

My Teeth Are Coming Forward And I Don’t Want Braces. Is There Anything I Can Do At Home To Stop Them Moving?

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello sir. My teeth are coming forward. They are not really visible now but I want to stop put a stop to this now. I don’t have the habit of closing my lips also. I don’t want to get braces and I am 15 years old. Please tell me how to get this corrected? I think this problem is happening because I don’t keep my lips closed so the teeth are coming forward. I want some home methods in order to get corrected them. Thank you.
