Unsure about lower denture

Thursday, January 7th, 2010
Q.
Hello Dr. Moore My bottom “Front Teeth”, 4… are separated by “TWO” extractions from the middle, I assume that you can imagine my appearance…that of a “Bulldog” somewhat? To make matters worse, they protrude to the point of making my lips protrude as well, which I hate. I will eventually be getting partial dentures for top and bottom. My upper front 4 teeth are out, they were very loose, these protruded even more than the bottoms. The remaining teeth will obviously be used to anchor the dentures. My concern is, the “Front Teeth” in the upper FRONT denture will of course be relatively straight, but the bottom 4 “separated original teeth” protrude… What procedure will the Dentist use to align up the bottom and top dentures? With the exception of the “two upper canines” plus the adjacent tooth behind each one and”ONE”lower back root canal that’s all the teeth I have left… oh’ yeah’… and the bottom 4 protruders! At my age “70” I sure don’t want braces. I was originally going to have them all out and get implants… HA’ until I learned it would cost a small fortune? A dentist I used for the consultation at the time said your face will look or BE LONGER??? So, needless-to-say, I’m looking for a 2nd opinion…what say you regarding my dilemma? I thank you whole heartedly and hope your return email will ease my mind? …Ohh’ one last thing, should I expect to pay “EXTRA for this? Regards,,

Can I fix the gap in the back of my teeth consider plaque?

Monday, December 7th, 2009
Q.
Hello, If your reading this, THANK YOU for taking the time to answer my question. Ever since my last dental visit I noticed this gap in the back of my four bottom front teeth. Before it started to bother me I noticed a white lining around the bottom of my teeth (just on the bottom four in the front) It wasn’t until the other day that it started to bother me really bad. My tongue will NOT stop playing with the gap in the back of my two front teeth. I hope I didn’t make it worse by trying to figure out what it was. I can stick my fingernail between the gap and under my teeth where the white lining was on my teeth. I think I picked the white stuff off. My guess, it would be plaque.(I thought that stuff was hard to get off) How much would I be looking at to fix the gap in the back of my teeth? AGAIN THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME YOU WOULD BE HELPING ME SO MUCH WITH A REPLY.

Need to fix my bite and get gum graft, please suggest.

Monday, December 7th, 2009
Q.
I am nearly coming to the end of invisalign treatment and have found that my top front teeth have gone forward and caused me to have a bit of an overbite. Also my lower left canine gum has receded, which must be due to brushing too hard as I don’t have gum disease. Will invisalign refinements be able to push my front teeth back a bit? or is there any other treatment that can fix my bite? Where can I go to get a gum graft, as it is causing me a lot of anguish.

What ball park figure would be acceptable for having implant?

Monday, December 7th, 2009
Q.
I am 63, had five front teeth ( 4 incisors and one cuspid) removed between the age of 17 and 21. I have all my other teeth intact. I have never got used to a partial, and wondered if there was anything else I could try at my age and so long after removal. ie implants of some sort. I know that if there is not enough bone left it can theoretically be grafted from elsewhere, but realistically, do you think this is possible and what sort of ball park figure would I be looking at if it were?

Can Invisalign fix my underbite as I have edge to edge bite?

Monday, December 7th, 2009
Q.
Hi, im a 21 yr old male that had braces to fix a slight underbite when i was 14-16, for 2 years after i had my braces off i started noticing my perfect bite was becoming more uncomfortable. As of now, im 21 and have an edge to edge bite, my mandible grew, but i dont have an underbite yet, just edge to edge which is very uncomfortable. Im assuming i will have to go back to braces and elastics again, but i was wondering if invisalign will work for my situation? Can I use elastics with invisalign, I read online that invisalign can fix underbites?
