Monday, September 26th, 2011
Q.

Ive been a thumb sucker since birth and am now 25 and have a overbite and struggle to naturally close my mouth just feels uncomfortable. my face has changed slightly luckely my appearance isnt bad as some i have seen i was wondering if an avisalign would do me any good to help my jaw relax so i dint have to hold my mouth shut and be always aware not to relax my jaw as its not a good look. im not sure if fixed braces would be better for me or not? i have a phobia of dentist so less invasive is best but im willing to what needs to be done your advice would be very usefull and how much would these procedures cost?

Is £2000 too much for the treatment of mild orthodontic problems with Invisalign?

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011
Q.

Hello. I had a fixed metal brace on both bottom and top when I was 15, I had it on for 3 years. And I was very silly, and I didn’t keep up with wearing my retainer. this past year, my front tooth has started slipping back into an old position, it’s my right front tooth, it’s pushing so much aginst the front left tooth it’s causing pain and discomfort when eating, the tooth that is pushing on the other tooth has made it very wobbly, I can tell it’s moving at a drastic speed as theres a difference each week, this one tooth that has moved is starting to cause so much problems, its now looking like I have 2 wonky front teeth and I’m so upset about it. I know this is my own silly fault, but I really want to fix this.

I went for an appointment to see about having invasigln ( sp? ) done, he said to me it was a very mild case and would only cost me 2000 and the procedure would probably only take 7 weeks… so I was shocked at the price and with him saying it was barely noticable, I don’t know if he was trying to con me or not, I’m not sure but that seemed a lot of money to me.

I just want the best advice on what would be best for me, and some actual pricelists, I know you can’t give me an exact price but a rough idea would be great. I’m a single Mum and it’s something I feel needs to be done, it’s knocked my confidence a lot, and I’m willing to pay out if it’s not a silly ammount.

Kind regards, thanks for taking time to look at this and I hope you reply.

What is the difference between Clearstep and Invisalign?

Monday, July 11th, 2011
Q.

CLEARSTEP VS INVISALIGN

I have a few questions about invisible braces:

What are the differences between the two?

How long will it take? I have been prompted to take action as I am getting married at the end of the year and although from the front my teeth look quite straight from the side they look really uneven. If I started it asap would it make much difference by December? I am happy to continue for longer, I would just like some difference by then.

How much does it cost? Which one is more cheap/expensive?

Are the effects lasting? I had a metal brace as a teenager that improved my teeth a bit but I don’t think it was kept on long enough. I would be willing to wear a retainer if it keeps my teeth nice.

Is Clearstep a suitable alternative to cases where Invisalign would work?

Does Clearstep require attachments to the teeth the same as Invisalign?

Could you suggest me a good professional cosmetic dentistry expert in Oxford?

Thank you in advance for your attention

What brace options are best for my teeth?

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011
Q.

Hi Sunita,
I just wanted to ask about what treatment you could recommend for my teeth. I am 18 and have never been confident with my teeth, so much that I don’t like smiling at all in photo’s and feel really held back by them. They are fairly crooked and the front two are pushed more to the front that the rest. Not only this but it looks slightly crowded and my canine on one side is much smaller than the other. It’s sounds picky, many people say they are okay, but I feel really bothered by them and my dentist did say they needed straightening out with a brace or something. I wanted to ask your advice on this. I am funding myself as I am 18 and wanted to know whether a brace or the new Invisalign would be better, and if veneers would be appropriate? I hope you understand how this has affected my confidence,
Thank you,

Could Invisalign be responsible for the increase in my jaw pain?

Monday, May 16th, 2011
Q.

Hi, I recently had invisalign treatment to straighten my teeth. My consultant suggested that this might also improve my overbite, but it hasn’t made any discernable impact on that which was disappointing. What’s worse though, I have noticed that I’ve been getting more frequent and worse jaw pain since finishing my treatment. I’ve always had the odd twinge, which I put down to the fact that my bite’s off, but it is definitely worse – do you think the invisalign treatment could be the reason? Do you think surgery would be the best option?

Thanks in advance for your time.

After years of brace work my teeth have drifted. What are my options?

Monday, May 16th, 2011
Q.

I had braces for 4 years when I was a teenager, and wore my retainer for 6 months longer than was required. Despite this my teeth have grown back to their original position. This is quite upsetting as you can imagine, since I spent my adolescence being ridiculed and going through quite a lot of pain for the braces, and it turns out it was all for nothing. I’m now 22, and don’t want to have to pay for the mistakes my orthodontist made. What treatments are available to me?

Brace has made my tooth worse!

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011
Q.

Hi there di could you answer me a question please it would be off much assistance , I wore braces for three years and then a retainer for 18 months as a teenager and they straightened my teeth. I am now in my early 20s and one of my front teeth has moved over the past year or so and is now visably sticking out. What would be my options for moving it back? This wasn’t actually a problem before my teenage dental treatment! I don’t really want to go back to the days of train-tracks again, but equally it is making me self-conscious. I’m also not the best at dealing with pain! Please help! help please.
