I Am In The Final Few Weeks Of Braces Treatment But My Orthodontist Keeps Putting It Back. What Should I Do?

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I am 61 and have had braces for 3 years following periodontal treatment. My NHS orthodontist sees me every 8 to 10 weeks. My teeth are getting straight and she is closing the gaps. She is closing the gaps but I seem to be going round in circles. After a few weeks it looks like the teeth are finally in place but then other teeth move which shouldn’t. I also think that my appointments are too long in between. Each time I go I am told that in my next visit they will be removed and it’s getting frustrating now. What should I do?

I’ve Had Braces For Nine Months And My Teeth Are Pretty Straight. Do You Know How Long I’ll Need Them?

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. My question is about braces, if you could please do your best to help me answer. I started off with okay teeth only one of my eye teeth was quite high in my gum. So then I got braces and I have had them for nine months now, and my teeth are pretty straight. Almost perfect and my bite is pretty good also, he has me started with an elastic in the very back that is just shifting my tooth a bit. How much longer do you think I will have braces? Thank you!

Hello. I Would Like To Know How Long It Would Take To Open Up Roughly 4mm Of Space For Dental Implants To Be Placed?

Friday, April 4th, 2014
Q.

Hello, I was wondering if you could help me? When I was younger I had braces to open up a space. This space had to be opened up in order to compensate for my missing lateral incisors which had to be replaced with dental implants. Now I am 18 and have been told there is not enough space in the roots to place the actual dental implant and I have been advised to have even more orthodontic treatment, I am just wondering how long it would take to open up roughly 3/4mm of space for dental implants to be placed? Any response will be greatly received. Thank you.

Will My Braces Need To Be Removed Prior To My Surgery?

Thursday, January 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi, Andrew, I’ve just had the Damon braces fitted and I am due to have an operation soon which I’m being put to sleep for and staying in hospital for one night. My question is, will the hospital still do my operation with the braces on? If not, will my orthodontist remove them prior to having the operation then put them back on after it? I’m really worried about this and would be grateful if you could help me as I hope I can still have the operation and not have to wait until I have finished my full treatment with the braces as I could have them on a year or more. Thank you.

My Canine Has Erupted Over The Top Of My Other Teeth. Would I Be Eligible For Braces Through The NHS As I’m A Student?

Friday, January 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello,
I am currently studying at university and I am 19. Over the past year my canine tooth has erupted out but now it is close to being in line with my other teeth, it grew over the top of my other teeth.
It is quite unsightly. My other canine tooth erupted when I was around 11 and my dentist just told to me to wait for the other one to erupt. It makes my teeth look overcrowded. My question is why did this canine tooth take so long to erupt and grow through and will I need braces and can I still get them on the NHS? How long would I have to wear them for? Thank you for your time and I look forward to your advice.

Friday, November 19th, 2010
Q.
Dear Dr Patel, I would appreciate if you could answer to my below questions; My problem is that I have a Periodontal disease and I lost few teeth’s. At the moment I have a partial metal denture. Some of my teeth’s are moved and crate a big spaces between them and it look’s ugly. I believe that some of the orthodontic treatment has to take place, before any additional action to my perfect smile. The teeth’s which needs orthodontic treatment are the upper R2 and L2. Could you please let me know how long I need to wear the braces to straighten them and the cost. (appox).,
