My Oral Health Has Deteriorated and Caused Gap In My Smile. Would Six Month Smiles Orthodontic Treatment Help?

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello,
the reason I e-mailed you today is because I would like to ask you some specific questions regarding the gaps in my teeth.

My teeth were always decent however in recent years (especially the last six years) my oral health deteriorated. The conditions of my teeth were always in my mind but I was too ashamed to visit a dentist (or orthodontic). It has now come to the point where it is affecting my everyday life and I can't ignore it.

Altogether I have 10 gaps (four upper and six lower), formerly it was seven but the other three developed because I made use of gap teeth elastic bands which have brought no benefits. My largest teeth gap is approximately 0.35 cm large, four of them are 0.2 cm big and the rest are easily fixable.

I had a look through the website and came across '6-Month Smiles: orthodontic treatment in six months' and was wondering if you would recommend me this option. In addition I also wanted to ask you if you were able to give me an estimation of long this procedure may take.

Thank you.

I Have A Gap Between My Teeth And I’m Embarrassed Of My Teeth. How Can I Get Braces Treatment?

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel, I would like your help. I have a gap between my two teeth and I’m really embarrassed of my teeth, but when I asked my old dentist they said I can’t have braces because it’s a cosmetic thing. So I really want to ask my new dentist. Do you thing they will say yes if I tell her I’m embarrassed to smile? I’m scared they will say no. I don’t know what to tell her? I’m so embarrassed of myself when I smile. I just want to smile and never stop but now I just can’t because of my gap. Thank you.

I Have Left My Teeth Get In A Bad State. I Have A Bad Smell Coming For My Teeth But I’m Too Embarrassed To Go. What Should I Do?

Thursday, July 17th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. Unfortunately I have left my two teeth (second to last upper,and second to last lower) to rot as I have a fear of dentist but now they have started to smell badly, I need to get them both pulled out but I am too embarrassed to go to a dentist. Do you know if there is anyone who specialises in rotten teeth? I have a filling in my lower tooth but it is still in place. The situation is driving me mad. I’m not in pain but the smell is causing me not to speak to anyone as I’m in fear that other people may smell it. Please advise me on what to do.

Q.

im 24 and I have gum disease. My front teeth are really frustrating me, my teeth were perfectly fine and all of a sudden my gums became swollen and started to disappear. I find it really embarrassing. I used to have great teeth, white, all straight always smiling and now I hate to smile.
I am constantly sucking on my teeth and gums. I have always looked after my teeth, brushing, flossing, Listerine. And now im stuck. I would really like to have veneers done but I don’t know if we can have them done with gum disease. My dentist doesn’t particually give me any adivse apart from brush my teeth and floss. is there any specific treatment you can have done to prevent the gum disease?

I am embarressed by my teeth and need help, what should I do?

Monday, November 22nd, 2010
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, I am 19 years old and i am really embarrased by my teeth, its gets me down so much that it is getting to the point where i dont even want to leave the house. At school people used to laugh at me and call me rabbit and it has always stuck with me ever since and i hate it! I recently qualified as a beautician and have had a few interviews, i didnt get the jobs and i felt that my teeth had something to do with it. I have never been able to smile or laugh without covering my mouth, i am always paranoid that people are looking at my horrible teeth. Please can you help me? I only have a part time job and i can not afford the costs of a brace, is there anyway that i could get my teeth fixed for free or even for a lower price or on a finacial plan. I have also always wanted to do modelling that was my dream as a child but i cannot achieive my goals with my goofey teeth, even writing this to you now brings tears to my eyes because they make me feel so ugly and depressed. I hope you can help me. Thank you for your time.
