Can braces close a 1cm gap?

Monday, September 3rd, 2012
Q.

Respected Sir,
Due to an injury in my early age,my right lateral incisor overlapped my right central incisor.The overlapped right central incisor did not have a root and so my dentist removed both the teeth. Now there is approx. 1 cm gap there and the dentist has put braces to bring the left central incisor to the right and cover the space.He will bring the left lateral incisor in place of the left c and putting a cap on that tooth so that it looks like a central incisor.And because my left canine is very high, it will come down.
Is this treatment right? By doing so the dentist wants to cover the space along with bringing the canine down! Can braces have the capability to cover 1cm gap?
Please answer and explain.

Q.

i have a good tooth in my front upper jaw (central incisor 1) but its twisted and is overlapping upon its next one (another central incisor. Now thats making my smile look bad. I have seen a dentist and he, after examining x-rays, told theres no space between my teeth and brace are not an option for me. then he suggested me a solution that is he will grind the tooth and root canal and then put on a crown.

is it ok?? is what the doctor saying right? after coming back home i got a question that is why do i need a root canal? Cant i simply grind and wear the crown?

is this the right solution that he suggested.. is there any new technology in the developed world?

How can I correct my overlapping teeth?

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes,

I have noticed that my right hand front tooth is starting to slightly overlap the other tooth and I am wondering what my options are to correct this. Obviously I am not keen on a permanent brace which would be installed for a year or more, I notice the 6 month option on this website.

For your information, as a child I had several teeth removed due to overcrowding, I believe 6-8 teeth were removed, this involved a hospital over night stay and general anaesthetic.

I presume I am best to address this as soon as possible before it becomes a more significant overlap.

Any advice you can offer would be appreciated.
