The Shape Of My Face Seems To Have Gotten Slimmer Whilst I’ve Had Braces. Is This Normal?

Thursday, July 31st, 2014
Q.

Hello. If I was to get braces, would it make my face thinner and less chubbier or make my upper lip bigger? I’ve had braces for the last 1.5 years with no extraction. I had them as my canines made me look like Dracula. I have noticed that the shape of my face has changed quite a lot. Is this because of the braces? Before I had a chubbier face but it’s become thinner. Will my face get back to normal? I miss the structure and shape of my face before I had braces. Thank you for your time. I look forward to your advice.

My Partner’s Tooth Has A Slight Turn In It. Do You Know What Procedure We Need To Consider In Order To Fix This?

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My partner is wanting new teeth as he isn’t very confident with his own teeth. We are wanting to know some options he could take to improve his teeth and a price it would cost for the procedures? He has all of his teeth except one from the back which he had taken out through pain and his front tooth has a slight turn in it. Do you know anywhere we could get this type of treatment also? Thank you.

Q.

Hello Mark. I have gaps in my upper teeth that have been there for years. I’m 25 year old female and I absolutely hate it.
It’s embarrassing. I have gaps between 3 teeth of my front of my mouth and I’m just wondering what my best and cheapest option is please? I don’t have a lot of money but am willing to pay for them to be fixed. Also, what are your views on teeth bands? I’m reading mixed comments on the internet about them and I hope you can get in touch. Thank you very much.

How Long Does Veneer Treatment Last And Is It Painful In Any Way?

Monday, March 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel, I have a question for you. How long do dental veneers last? And do you think it is worth having them? My teeth are quite discoloured and not very straight. Would this be a good method compared to let’s say braces. I was considering getting braces but then I was told about this option. Are the veneers permanent, or do they not last very long? How long will the procedure normally take and is it painful in any way? If you could give me a quote that would be great.

Thank you.

Hello, My Partner Recently Had A Procedure At The Orthodontic Clinic And He’s Still In Pain, Is This Normal?

Monday, October 21st, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. I’d like to discuss how my partner got a procedure done at hospital at the orthodontics clinic nine days ago. They cut away a fair size, triangle shape from the hard palette. He is still in extreme pain which we don’t think is normal I contacted them on Tuesday and she looked at his mouth said it was fine. Could there be a nerve showing maybe that’s causing the pain? Just feel it’s not normal to be in just as much pain nine days on, he only had the normal dentist for the procedure to be carried out. What would you suggest that we do, is it normal? Thank you for your time.

I’m Getting Married Next Year And Want To Know Cheap Options For Treatment?

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Patel. My query is that I have a tooth right next to my two top front ones that appears to be moving very far back to the point now when I have a photo people ask if I have a tooth missing, I am extremely upset and distressed by this especially as I am due to get married next year and want to be able to smile in my photograph without worrying at the back of my mind, I had braces when I was younger and foolishly took them out with pliers as I was so self-conscious of them. But now I need to find a way that is cheap, to make me smile again and I am not sure how to do it. Can you provide me with any information? Many thanks.

I Think I May Need Another Brace Fitted And I Wan’t To Know How Long It Will Take?

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013
Q.

Hello Mark, my problem is that I have been using braces back in India for proper alignment, yet I am not very satisfied with the work I received, I wonder if I need to have new braces fitted again to get proper alignment? If so how long will such treatment usually take? I’m asking as I’m leaving the UK soon and I’d like to know whether I’d have to stay longer if I got this treatment as I have also been using braces for about two years already. I hope you can help me with this. Thank You.

My Retainer Cracked And I Want To Know If The Advice I Was Given Is Correct, Can You Help?

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013
Q.

Hello.
I had a 6 month Smile brace, after 4 months, they were removed and i was given a clear retainer.

After 3 months, this retainer cracked. This concerned me quite a bit. After waiting a few days for an appointment, my orthodontist made me a new retainer. However this did not fit and I experienced some movement.

She then made me a new retainer, again, movement occurred. My orthodontist has now taken to adding “clear bonding” to my tooth, to fill the space in my retainer to move my tooth back.

Even now, they are still not as straight as they were when treatment finished. I only have 6 months aftercare and that runs out this month. She is saying i will only qualify to have my braces back on if my teeth have moved more than 2mm. She also stated if my smile is considered to be straight, then they wont consider further treatment.

She told me that movement during retention can happen. My teeth move if i take my retainer out for an hour whilst eating. Apparently this is normal.

Can you offer your insight into this? It would be greatly appreciated
