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

Can dental bonding be redone for gaps and chipped tooth

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008
Q.
I had a small space between my 2 front teeth and a little chip on my front tooth, but had those recently fixed with bonding. I was told it lasts generally 7-10 years because of staining/breakage. I was wondering though if only partial staining occurs or if the chipped part of the tooth returns, is the whole bonding procedure redone? If so, how does a dentist know where the original bonding was? (so that they don’t cut into the actual tooth or miss taking off some of the bonding) I would appreciate information about this, thanks.

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.

One of my dental implants has fallen out what is the cause of that ?

Thursday, January 31st, 2008
Q.
I had a couple of implants, 6 and 7, inserted in one session at the beginning of 2006 after bone transplant. Since then biting on that side has not caused me any problems. However, last month the No 7 tooth became loose and, despite antibitiotics treatment, quickly fell out. What would be the likely cause of that (infection?) and can anything be done now please? Many thanks I K
