Will a Removable Device Help to Close the Gap in My Teeth?

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015
Q.

Sir
I am 39 years old. I have a gap between my side teeth, not the front ones, on the lower jaw.The gap is about 2-3mm wide.This gap has appeared gradually with time. Please can you suggest a suitable remedy for me? Do removable appliances work? For how long each day should they be worn? Actually, I have been wearing one for about 2 months and I wore them the whole night but can’t afford to wear them every night. I’ve had no visible results so far.

My Front Incisors Are Too Long And Crooked. Please Suggest Any Fast And Effective Way To Improve This?

Thursday, October 16th, 2014
Q.

Hi, I am 23 years old and my front incisors are long and not straight. They seem to be coming out day by day which is making my lips look like they are getting fatter. These teeth are also a bit yellow, and stained from childhood.

I have had braces previously to straighten these teeth but now this problem has returned. There isn’t a gap between those teeth, the problem is basically length. Due to this, I don’t feel confident in showing my teeth when I smile.

Please suggest any fast and effective way to improve this.

I Have Two Missing Front Teeth And I Would Like To Know How Much It Will Cost For A Dental Implant?

Friday, October 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. Good afternoon, I just want to ask you about how much it’ll cost for dental implant? I have two missing teeth at the front. This makes smiling or taking a photograph on social occasions very difficult and I would like to have this fixed. Could braces close this gap or would it have to be a dental implant? And do you know of any special offers for this type of treatment. Thank you for your time in advance.

Invisalign Won’t Work As My Overbite Is Too Big. Please Let Me Know If There Are Any Other Options Available?

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes,
I am 18 years old. When I was little I sucked my thumb and it caused a drastic overbite and I had to have surgery because the skin where my upper lip meets my gums caused a big gap in my front teeth. I hate how my teeth look, but I don’t want braces for years because I get such severe canker sores in my mouth. Is there any faster form of braces or anything that may cause less mouth pain or prone to sores. If I do have to go with braces I would at least like to know if there are any fast and reliable choices. Invisalign won’t work because my over bite is too big. Please let me know if there any other options available. Thanks!

I Had A Crown Re-stuck The Other Day And Now I Have A Gap Between My Front Teeth. Could You Tell Me How To Fix This?

Thursday, August 14th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Patel. I have three crowns on my front teeth. I am 47 and have had them for about 20 years! I had a crown re-stuck the other day by my dentist and I now have a gap between my front teeth. I never had a gap naturally or when original crowns fitted.
I returned to dentist who said he could not get the crown out and he’d have to “cut it” out. Is this correct? Anyway he took an X-ray and said I still had two “rumbling” infections above my two front right crowns. I had an apicoectomy a long time ago now and I don’t want to repeat the experience.
He said my only options are to fill the gap by adding some sort of material to my left front natural tooth to close the gap, but he said it would angle out from the top which sounds awful! Could you tell me how I can fix this? Thank you for your time.

I Have Front Tooth Gap. Is There An Option To Get Two Veneers And Get The Rest Whitened Or Would That Look Weird?

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014
Q.

Hey Mark. I have a gap between my two front teeth on the top set of my jaw, I have already had braces when I was younger but they didn’t seem to work. I was wondering what options I have to close this gap? E.g. Veneers or bonding? Is there an option just to get two veneers put in (the two front teeth) and get the rest whitened or will that look weird? Also what would be the most effective treatment? Could you please advise me on prices too?

Thank you.

My Front Tooth Is Skewed And Has Grown Above The Other Ones. Which Treatment Other Than Braces Would Be Suitable To Correct This?

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hi, I have a front tooth that has grown up above all the other ones in the gum, it is the only one that is skewed and moving a bit above the right one. I get a hard time having to talk cause only the gap appears until I smile and reveal them. I would like to know the best possible, non-expensive procedure to have it in line with the others but I do not want to go for braces. I have heard of veneers, dental and cosmetic bonding, but could any of them be an option? Any other method? Thanks.

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.

Is It Possible To Have A Two Unit Bridge By Using A Small Molar As Support? I Have A Missing Tooth.

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dentist. I have a missing tooth with a (hopefully) healthy small molar on one side of the gap and an old crown that I would not like to be fiddled with on the other side of the gap.
Is it possible to have a two unit bridge to fill this gap by using just the small molar as support? I do not like the sound of a Maryland Bridge but would a Cantilever Bridge be possible in my case?

Thank you very much for any information you may have.

What Would Be The Best Approach To Make Between Inman Aligner And Six Month Smiles?

Thursday, June 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes,
I am a 27 year old student. My front lower teeth are not straight and also gapped. I would like to enquire on the best approach between the 6 month smile and the Inman aligner to take.
Also, I will not be in the country for about 10 weeks. If I do get the braces can they be fit for that long without visiting the orthodontist? Also, which facilities offer good and affordable service? I would really appreciate your response.
Please advise me. Thank you.
