My Bottom Tooth Is Slightly Further Back Than The Rest Of My Teeth. Is There Anything That Can Move This Forward?

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014
Q.

My bottom front tooth is slightly further back than the rest of my teeth and I was wondering if there is and procedure or technique that can be used to push it forward? I would rather not have braces as it’s only one tooth that needs to move and I am very happy with the rest of my teeth; although one of my top front teeth slightly overlaps the other. My top teeth really don’t bother me as much as the bottom one. I’m 21 and would like the least painful most cost effective treatment possible. Would a spring retainer be useful in this situation?

My Teeth Won’t Close Together Properly As I Used To Suck My Thumb. If I Was To Get An Operation For This, Would I Have To Pay?

Monday, September 1st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My teeth won’t close together and it’s they’re all messed up because I used to suck my thumb. I stopped this last year. I really want an operation on my mouth. I can’t even smile. If I was to get an operation do I have to pay? My tongue sticks out and it’s really annoying. I really want to have a perfect straight smile that would close properly and I want to feel happy and good about my teeth.
My jaws are really wonky and they won’t close together while my front teeth are really messed up and they won’t close together. I really need to help. I would love to get surgery.

I Would Like To Know If You Treat Children For Orthodontics Who Suffer From Osteoporosis?

Friday, August 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I hope you can help us. I would like to know if you treat children for orthodontics who have been on biphosphonate treatment for osteoporosis?  My daughter is 14 years old and has been on and off treatment for 8 years.  I have had her on waiting lists for up to two years only to then be told that now they won’t treat her, even though her consultant has said the risks are minimal.  Is this something you or any of your colleagues can advise us on? She is desperate to be treated because she also has overcrowding that can be painful at times. Thank you.

This Might Be A Silly Question. Is It Still Possible To Kiss With Braces On Without Being Sore? My Partner Needs Braces.

Thursday, August 28th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. This may be a silly question, but my partner is considering teeth straightening. Is it possible to still kiss with braces? Or is it difficult, dribbly and/or sore?

Partner is 57. I reckon he also has a high and narrow roof of mouth. He has some white filling on front of teeth, wants it done as quickly as possible. Do you have any idea which brace could work well for him? Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

I Have Protruding Teeth. Should I Opt For Braces Or Surgery To Fix This? Which Is The Most Effective?

Thursday, August 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. At what price can I get surgery for my protruding teeth? And is this the best way to do it? Will it look natural after surgery? What would be the maximum cost for this treatment? I’m a 21 year old girl and my teeth are protruding.  I feel very bad when my friends kid me and tease me. I need the best suggestion from you for my problem? What would be better a surgery
or braces for my teeth? If I opt for the surgery, will it change the shape of my face? Thank you.

I Have A Problem With My Crown. Could I Remove The Tooth And Use Braces To Fill The Gap In?

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I’ve had a crown for 3 years but although it looks fine I have a problem with it not being real. I’m very good at cleaning and have to floss as it does get food caught and smells even hours later. I have all 32 teeth and this is a lower molar. I wondered is it possible to remove the crown/tooth completely and then have a brace and move the upper molar and wisdom teeth down in that place? Firstly is it possible? Then I’d have no crown to worry about! Please help getting me depressed. Thanks.

I Have Diastema Which Really Bothers Me. Could I Have Dental Surgery To Correct This? I Don’t Braces Again.

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014
Q.

Dr Riten Patel. I have diastema and it has been bothering me for a while but I do not want to get braces again (Yes, I’ve had braces before). I visited a dentist recently and they said the fastest treatment was fast braces but then again it’s still braces. I hope to believe that teeth correction surgery exists and I hope you can or know someone who performs surgery to straighten teeth quickly. I am pretty sure it is expensive so if it exists can I please get a price estimate so I can know what to work with? Thank you.

I Have An Overlapping Front Tooth. Could You Tell Me If Simpli5 Braces Could Fix This Problem?

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I have a question that I hope you can answer. My front tooth stick’s out further than the other and is overlapping the other tooth. It has pushed my other front tooth backwards. So basically my main front two teeth both need to be straightened. Would Simpli5 braces fix this? What does the procedure involve? It really annoys me and I’d like it fixed as soon as possible. Thank you.

Hey There. My Smile Doesn’t Match Up After Having Braces. I Was Wondering If This Could Be Fixed?

Monday, August 18th, 2014
Q.

Hey there.

When I was younger, perhaps around 14, (I’m 26 now) I had a tooth taken out on the nhs that was growing the wrong way inside my gum and pushing all the other teeth out of place.
I’ve had braces to sort an under-bite also and I’ve tried to straighten all the rest. Subsequently I feel very little was done. My bite is okay but my jaw is all out of line. In the middle of my bottom jaw is a tooth. So the line that should match up with my top teeth doesn’t match. The fang tooth on my top left side isn’t there and makes my face so different looking to the other side of my face. I feel so ugly with it all over the place. I was wondering if this sounds like it is fixable? I’d give anything to have lovely teeth and not want to hide them.

Many thanks.

Is The Inman Aligner Available On The NHS If You’re Under 18? I Need Quick Orthodontic Treatment Over The Summer Holidays?

Monday, August 18th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. I have a simple question for you. Can you get an Inman Aligner on the NHS if you’re under 18? I wouldn’t be able to go to so many orthodontist appointments with school and exams so a quick treatment that would be mostly in the summer holiday would be ideal and my family aren’t able to pay for over £1000 for them. I’m really self-conscious about smiling and even talking because you can just see points of my teeth. Also can Inman Aligners push front teeth together and fix the left incisor overlapping with a front tooth? Thank you for getting in touch.
