Is It Possible to Have a Fixed Brace on My Upper Teeth and an Inman Aligner on My Bottom Teeth?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015
Q.

Is it possible to have a fixed brace on the upper teeth and wear an Inman Aligner on the bottom teeth? I have had a mini online consultation and was advised for the top teeth only. I have a rotated left front tooth and crowding on the left upper side. Right below on the bottom row I have a small gap and also one on the opposite side on the lower teeth. I thought you had to have braces for both the top and bottom teeth. I would really like to have a removable aligner for the bottom if needed, could you please advise if this is possible?

Is it Possible to Correct My Crowded Teeth?

Thursday, April 16th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have two to three crowded teeth, on the lower jaw next to the canine and on the upper jaw. I am 40 years old. From childhood I’ve felt that I am not confident, I don’t speak as well as others due to my teeth.
Is there any way to align my teeth at this stage so that I can earn some money by teaching for my family? I was  a good student but I’m not a good teacher. I want to be a good teacher, to relax and feel confident. Please reply, is it possible to correct this?

Could You Tell Me Whether My Son’s Orthodontist Has Given The Right Course Of Action?

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello. My 14 year old son has a lot of overcrowding, which requires 3 teeth removed, his upper k9 teeth are very high up in the gums, and to complicate things further, he has one upper front tooth missing and currently wears a denture plate. His orthodontist has suggested braces for 2 and a half years, and pulling the teeth next to his missing tooth into the gap, and after braces are off capping the tooth that was next to the missing front tooth to make it look like a front tooth, and capping the k9 to make it look like the tooth that has become the front tooth, but doing this will leave my son unable to wear a denture and live with a gap and then a small tooth in the gap until its capped after the 2 and a half years, is this the only way to deal with this problem? Could braces not be used to straighten the teeth but leave a gap for him to continue to wear a denture and then at the end of the treatment to straighten, the denture be replaced by an implant? My son is devastated by the prospect of revealing that he has a false tooth to his peers. Regards.

Is It Possible To Pay For Invisalign Treatment Over Instalments? My Smile Is Overcrowded And Crooked.

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have pretty bad crooked teeth and I feel invisalign is a good choice to sort them out. The cost is a bit dear for me. Is it possible to pay in instalments over a period of time? Where could I go to arrange an appointment to get invisalign and how much is it for an appointment? Would I have to pay just for a first time check up? My teeth are over crowded and crooked, it’s not so much the bottom teeth it’s the top, the front 6 teeth and the front 2 are leaning towards the left. Also the 2 small teeth on each side aren’t straight and one is fully turned at a 90 degree angle. The 2 beside them are towards the top of my gums like fangs. Please help me on this. I dislike my teeth and avoid smiling due to how they look and need expert opinions and guidance.

Is There Any Way I Can Close The Gaps In My Teeth Naturally?

Friday, June 27th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Moore. I have a small gap between my front teeth. I consulted a dentist recently but they told me that if I wear braces then one of my front teeth will come under the other. But this gap is really annoying. Is there any way to close the gaps naturally without having to fill gaps and all? I feel very disappointed with these gaps. I don’t like to use artificial methods to fill gaps. Do you know how much treatment would cost? Thank you for your time.

I’ve Been Told That I Have To Get Used To My Bulky Crown. Could You Tell Me If This Is Correct Or Not?

Monday, June 16th, 2014
Q.

Good evening Dr Hughes. I hope you can help me determine whether I’ve had bad dental treatment or not? About 3 months ago I’ve had a crown placed on my upper front tooth. The temporary crown was fantastic and matched it well, unfortunately the permanent one is noticeably larger than the other teeth and it sticks out. My dentist told me it’s because my teeth are crowded and that I’ll get used to it.
I really disagree with him and have tried to get used to it but to no avail. Is it possible for me to send a picture to you to see if my dentist is trying to cover up bad dental work please? Many thanks.

I Was Just Wondering If I Could Have Braces And How Much They Are Going To Cost?

Friday, June 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew.  I was just wondering if I could have braces and how much they cost? I have very crowded teeth and they are crooked and some of my teeth need positioning further forward as they are growing all over the place. I have to have two operations on my incisors because they are angled wrong. How long do you think I need braces on for? And do you think I should opt for fixed braces or clear ones?
Thank you for you time. I look forward to your advice.

My Canines Stick Out, I Need My Teeth Straightened. What Braces Should I Have To Boost My Confidence?

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew, I have canine teeth that stick out a lot on my top teeth and therefore have resulted in slight crowding of my front top teeth. My bottom front teeth are also a little crowded. However, I am not sure which braces will be best for me as it’s only my front teeth which are not straight. I am really worried about my teeth as I don’t like smiling and they affect my confidence in public situations a lot.
I am not keen on having the standard metal braces as I don’t want them to look too obvious. I will be happy to pay £1500 or less to straighten my teeth. Which braces do you think I should have?

Are There Credit Opportunities Available For Me To Have Treatment On My Deep Bite And Crowding Problems?

Thursday, January 16th, 2014
Q.

Hi! I had crowded teeth on my upper jaw during my childhood and it has been fixed with bridges. The treatment started with jaw enlargement, but there was not enough space for all the teeth. After the treatment the teeth on my lower progressed and started to become crowded, in addition I have a deep bite and jaw pains, as well as problems with chewing. I am 21 years old and would like to have treatment for this. The question I have is, if I am unable to carry out full payment, will there be credit opportunities available?

Thank you in advance for your help!

I Have Crowding And Would Like To Know About The Less Visible Types Of Brace Options Available?

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, I have a question I’d like to ask. I have crowding of both my upper teeth and lower and I was wondering how much it would cost for clear step braces? An average price is all I need. I just got a job with a large corporation and feel that a nice smile would help me feel better about presentations and what not. If there are any other options that are less visible that the standard metal or ceramic braces I would appreciate if you told me the options. Thanks, I look forward to your reply.
