I’m Not Sure Whether Invisalign Is The Right Kind Of Treatment For Me. Could You Provide Me With More Information?

Thursday, May 15th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I hope you can helps me. I would like some more information on having Invisalign as I am 30 years old and not sure whether that I want the other kind. My front teeth stick out quite a lot. This really gets me down and in the past I have tried to affect them as I was so depressed with them, because of what I have done to them I am scared to go to the dentist and what they might think. Please could you give me some advice? I look forward to your reply. Thank you for your time.

Hello Mark. Does Invisalign Have To Be Paid Off In One Lump Sum Or Can It Be Paid Off Monthly?

Monday, May 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark, I hope you can help me. I was just wondering if the Invisalign treatments have to be paid in a just one lump sum or if it can be paid monthly or something like that? I live up North, so I would be using the practice that would be closest to me. I have an over-bite and my top teeth are almost straight though my bottom set are in need of sorting, therefore if there is somewhere I can pay it monthly I will definitely book mine as soon as I know. Thank you in advance for your advice.

My Daughter Is Allergic To The Metal In Fixed Braces. Is There Any Other Brace Type She Can Wear?

Thursday, May 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. My daughter has significant gap between her front upper and lower teeth. She has had a separator and started the process of braces only to discover she is allergic to the metal. Our orthodontist has said that there are no options other than plastic, that some parts have to be metal. Do you have any any suggestions please, she wants her to take prednisone to suppress her reaction and I am worried about that as an option? She has said some parts can be ceramic but the back parts that anchor the braces have to be made of metal. Thank you for your time.

I’m Having Second Thoughts About Invisalign. Can I Get My Deposit Back Even After The Moulds Have Been Made?

Thursday, May 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I hope you can help me. I recently went to the dentist to have Invisalign.

I had moulds made of my teeth, and I am waiting for the Clincheck from America to decide if I am happy to go ahead with the process.

I am having second thoughts about the braces. However I have paid a 500 pound deposit that I was told was taken for the moulds, X-ray, etc. I am wondering if I changed my mind could I get the deposit back or have I forfeited it due to having the moulds made? Thank you for helping me with this matter.

I Have Multiple Diastema And I Don’t Like The Spaces In Between My Teeth. Is There Any Other Treatment Than Braces To Fix This?

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I hope you can help me. I have a problem with my teeth that they have some protrusion and multiple diastema. I am not annoyed about the protrusion but I don’t like the spaces so I had them treated with composite veneers 7 years ago and now my composite veneers have turned yellow. I know I need orthodontic treatment but I am anxious about all braces. What are my other alternatives? I have a video for the case if I can send it? I am 28 years old. Thank you in advance for your reply.

I Am Unhappy With My Four Front Teeth. Should I Go For Invisalign Or Veneers?

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I am unhappy about my front upper 4 teeth and for many years I have felt insecure about myself. I wanted to get veneers done simply because they seem cheaper and correction allows for quicker results. However a dentist has advised me to go for Invisalign. He said as my teeth were in good condition and not as bad as I think it would be better as I am only upset with their positioning. The dentist said it would take 6 months to complete the course and cost around £1400. Please can you advise if I have received good advice? How would I know if I am in good hands and paying the right price? Many thanks (36 years old).

Hi Mark. I Need My Teeth Straightening To Boost My Confidence. Are There Any Innovative Treatments Out There That Can Help Me?

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I am a student with overlapping front teeth
I am interested in treatments to solve this as it affects my self-confidence and I just want a smile that looks great.
I don’t want conventional braces. Price/cost of treatment is also a factor to consider as I am a Student and not really rolling in the paper at the minute.
My lower set of teeth is also out of line, but my real issue is just the two front centre teeth of which one is considerably overlapping the other. Please help, as the profession I wish to pursue is one of self-confidence, image and dialogue. All which are detrimental at the minute because of my teeth. I was going to have braces when I was 11; one of my biggest regrets is allowing the orthodontist at the time put me off as it would of been on the NHS and at a young age. However 10 years later I’m sure there is an innovative treatment that would suffice? Thank you for your time.

Is It Possible To Get A Rough Price On How Much Invisible Braces Cost?

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew, I am looking to have braces but don’t really like the thought of the train track braces but I have seen the Invisible kind. Do I need to speak to my dentist first before I go to my orthodontist?
Also is it possible to send a picture of the teeth and get a rough price?
They’re not that bad, it’s just the two front teeth and two at the bottom are not perfectly straight? My dentist says I don’t need them but I would be happier when I know my teeth are perfect and I’m willing to pay the price? I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

I’d Like To Straighten My Incisors. I Am Investigating Invisalign But I’d Like A Cheaper, Faster Alternative?

Monday, April 7th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel, I’d like your advice. Both my upper lateral incisors are set back about 0.5cm behind my front teeth. One sits on my lower incisor, the other just behind.
I had a removable brace as a teen, 10 years ago and after 2 years of diligently wearing it, I got told he may have made a mistake!
I would like to know what options I now have for correcting this? I am investigating Invisalign, but I’d like to know if there is a cheaper, faster alternative?
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to your reply.

Could You Tell Me The Best Method For Stripping The Teeth, I’m Getting Invisalign And I Would Like To Know Which Way Is Safest?

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. Could you tell me which method is better for teeth stripping, using a dental drill or having it done by hand with a diamond abrasive strip attached to a small piece of sheet metal? The same amount of enamel is to be stripped off my teeth, but I would like to know specifically which method will yield better results? I am trying to decide on an orthodontist to work on my teeth. I will be getting the Invisalign treatment. I look forward to your reply, thank you for your time.
