My Two Front Teeth Are Overlapping And It’s Affecting My Confidence. What Type Of Brace Should I Consider?

Friday, August 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Riten, my two front teeth are slightly uneven, one protrudes out and slightly crosses over the other. The other tooth seems to be straight. This has been a problem for me for many years, however I feel like the problem is getting worse and knocking my confidence, so much so It’s affecting my social life. I would like some information on what the best course of action to even them out would be? Is it possible to have a removable brace or retainer if this is only a slight problem? And how much approximately would it be? And how long would I need to wear it?

Many Thanks. I hope to hear from you.

Would I Be Able To Get Braces Without Having Teeth Removed?

Friday, August 9th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I visited an orthodontist a couple of months ago because my two top front teeth are overlapped by the teeth either side of them. I do not like this for cosmetic reasons (although I have never had any other issues with eating etc). While there, he diagnosed me with a minor cross-bite, and a minor overbite, and gave me various options of braces for a year and a half. What he said would definitely be necessary to do would be to remove two teeth up in the top, which would allow the rest of the teeth space to move back, and the overlapping teeth to stop overlapping. What I was wondering, is if it would be possible to have those two teeth out, and then six months (ish) of braces just to spread my teeth back out into the new space, and then to stop having braces and to not have a retainer either. If I had this procedure, would the teeth stay in their new position, without a need for a retainer, as the only reason they were overlapping was due to overcrowding? Thank you in advance for your response!

Am I Stuck With Overlapping Front Teeth For The Rest Of My Life?

Friday, May 31st, 2013
Q.

Okay Dr I have a slight issue with how straight my teeth are, it’s a little awkward because it is not my whole mouth. It’s simply my two front teeth overlap, the rest of my teeth are fine. It looks as if one of my two front teeth is longer than the other one. It looks terrible I don’t like to smile or laugh or even talk to people because I get so embarrassed. Lately they have been causing me some discomfort, I’ve been to the dentist many times and they say they cannot give me braces and I cannot afford to pay for them. Will a retainer do me any good or is there anything else you recommend? Or am I stuck with this for the rest of my life?

Can I Fix My Overcrowded Teeth?

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013
Q.

Hi there
I only ever go to the dentist when I get pain, because I am very embarrassed about the state of my teeth. They are so overcrowded and I did go to the dentist when I was young but got scared and kept putting off appointments, however I am now in my late 30’s and really need to sort then our, just hope it’s not too late!they cross badly at the front on the top and in the bottom they are even worse, I won’t smile and it’s really upsetting me and getting me down, I don’t have £200 to have new teeth fitted but I just want someone to help without it costing me £1000’s of pounds
Thank you.

I’m 18 And In Full Time Education, How Much Would It Cost To Have My Overlapping Teeth Corrected?

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013
Q.

HI. :)

I have near perfect teeth in that all of them are straight, but the curve of my jawline is stronger on one side of my mouth. Consequently, there is less of an overlap of my bite on that side. It also makes the teeth on that side appear bigger when I smile because they bulge out slightly more. It is not a very huge problem and I can chew fine. No one else notices it but what forms of correction could I get? I don’t think I require anything too drastic because as I said there is no pain and I can eat just fine. However, is there any chance of this small problem developing into something more serious? If possible, could you give me a cost range? I am 18 and in full time education and so I understand that NHS treatment will not be an option for me anymore.

Thank you for your help in advance!

Should I Get Veneers?

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013
Q.

Hi,

I’m a 20 year old female and for my 21st i’m looking into getting veneers. My teeth are quite small and are in relatively good condition. I’ve had a brace when younger however two bottom teeth are slightly overlapping and I believe I would only need the front six teeth top and bottom doing.

My teeth have some enamel wear but nothing to be worried about. I have heard and read a little bit on social six treatments and stuff but don’t really know what would be best to go for so I would appreciate any information on the treatments and average prices that you can give.

Many thanks.

Can my growing wisdom teeth cause my already protruding incisor to look even worse?

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. My problem is that my lateral incisor sticks out as there isn’t enough space between my canine and front incisor so it sits on top of both with a small gap behind about 1/2 cm. I could be wrong but the canine appears to be larger then the other side and is square in shape and is wider at the bottom. My top wisdom teeth have been coming up really slowly for about 2 years no and I am worried that they may push my teeth further making it worse. Can this happen? I am already very paranoid about it…also I am a bit apprehensive about braces so would appreciate any ideas on other solutions. Any advice would be great, thank you.

Is there any way I can have my teeth straightened without the use of braces?

Thursday, December 6th, 2012
Q.

Hi Doctor Shaffie. Can you help? One of my teeth next to my right tooth is pushed back and the one next to it is higher and is pushed forward, what would i need to do to get a straight smile without having to have repetitive treatments? and how much will it cost?

this has been a problem for many years and need help but i do not want to have braces because as my teeth come out straight after time one of them is of coloured so they would look horrible. The issues are causing me to feel extremely self conscious and i need something doing about it right away.

I think I have a crossbite and it is causing me a lot of pain when I eat, can I get this corrected through the NHS?

Thursday, December 6th, 2012
Q.

Hi Doctor Moore. My name is Steven and I’m 29 years old. My jaw seems to hang lower on the left side of my face and on that side I can not put my teeth together, therefore I have never been able to chew food on that side of my mouth. Also when viewed in the mirror, my jaw on the left side is quite markedly lower than on my right side and looks as if it is not seated correctly. Because my right hand side of the jaw is solely used, it is starting to cause pain as I cannot chew food on my other side. Is there any way I can get this corrected on the NHS? and do you have any idea as to what has caused these problems in the first place? Many thanks and kind regards!

What is the best brace used to treat crooked bottom teeth and overlapping front teeth?

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012
Q.

Hello, I have a problem with my teeth; they are very crooked on the bottom and the front two teeth overlap and one sticks right out, which gives the front 4 teeth the in/ out effect and this is due to only one front tooth falling out as a child and not giving enough room for the other to grow. I am wondering what the best treatment available is and what would be involved as well as an estimate cost, how long am i likely to wear braces? thank you for your time.
