Hello, Dr. Moore! Please Tell Me If There Is A Non-Surgical Way To Bring My Upper Set Forward And Down?

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014
Q.

Hello, Dr. Moore!
Please tell me if there is a non-surgical way to bring upper teeth forward and down? I feel like my teeth are sort of too deep in my mouth. And when I open my mouth all you can see is my lower teeth (probably because they are retro-clined) and no upper teeth. I want that changed. I was thinking, if I got braces and it tilted my lower teeth outwards to fix the position of my retro-clined teeth that would cause a slight under-bite and could be treated with elastics. But the question is would the elastics actually bring upper teeth forward or lower teeth backward to fix the underbite?
I would really want to push my teeth out at least a little bit and bring upper teeth down because I love smiling so much but when I sometimes see photos of my smile I think I should stop.

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I hope you can help me. I am 22 years old and would like some work doing on my teeth I have no idea what my options are or what treatments are available and I am wondering where to start. Do I book a consultation with cosmetic or should I speak to my regular dentist first an see what options are available? My second tooth to the left of my front tooth is only just cutting however it isn’t growing in the space but on top of another tooth which is realigning my front tooth and the one it’s growing above. Do you know what type of treatment I’ll need. Thank you.

Can Tooth Grinding Cause The Misalignment Of Teeth? If So, How Would I Fix This Problem?

Monday, October 7th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I am looking for an advice regarding teeth straightening. I have recently noticed that my teeth (front ones) are becoming slightly curved in appearance – they are not as straight (vertically) as they used to be.  I am not sure if this is related to the teeth grinding problem I am going through at the moment, and can I also ask whether teeth grinding can affect teeth alignment? Can you please offer any advice regarding this matter as I’d like to fix this problem in the future. Many thanks.

How Long Will It Take For Braces To Open Up A Gap For A Dental Implant To Be Fitted?

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013
Q.

Hello there Dr Shaffie, when I was Twelve years old 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 Eighteen years old 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 if I need the braces, then how long it would take to open up roughly 3/4mm of space for dental implants to be placed? Thanks, I really hope you can help me sort this problem out?

I Need My Teeth Straightened After A Fight But I’m Worried They Might Crack, Could This Happen?

Monday, September 2nd, 2013
Q.

Hiya,

Let me first start by saying how it started, a few years ago when I was 16, I got into a fight and got punched in the mouth, it landed on my front upper tooth and now it’s been pushed back, it’s not major problem but I would like it straightened again so it will line up with the rest of my teeth, the only problem is that I am worried about is if there is crack across the centre of the tooth, would it still be able to be straightened? The crack isn’t major but it’s still there and I worry everyday that if I bite into something hard it could crack completely. Any help and advice will be appreciated, obviously I will not attempt to straighten it myself, I just want to know if it’s worth me making a trip to a cosmetic dentist?

Thanks.

Would I Be Able To Get Braces Without Having Teeth Removed?

Friday, August 9th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I visited an orthodontist a couple of months ago because my two top front teeth are overlapped by the teeth either side of them. I do not like this for cosmetic reasons (although I have never had any other issues with eating etc). While there, he diagnosed me with a minor cross-bite, and a minor overbite, and gave me various options of braces for a year and a half. What he said would definitely be necessary to do would be to remove two teeth up in the top, which would allow the rest of the teeth space to move back, and the overlapping teeth to stop overlapping. What I was wondering, is if it would be possible to have those two teeth out, and then six months (ish) of braces just to spread my teeth back out into the new space, and then to stop having braces and to not have a retainer either. If I had this procedure, would the teeth stay in their new position, without a need for a retainer, as the only reason they were overlapping was due to overcrowding? Thank you in advance for your response!

Can We Move My Daughter’s Teeth Forward To Decrease Her Overriding Bottom Lip?

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013
Q.

Hi,  my daughter is currently wearing braces and her bottom lip is overriding on to her top lip. She has braces on both her top and bottom sets of teeth. Her bottom jaw is bigger than her maxilla (this was caused by an accident when she fell onto her teeth on a step when she was two years old). Can we do something to make this less prominent by moving the teeth forward a bit? She has been wearing braces for 18 months now … 

Looking forward to your answer, 
Thanks.

Would Veneers Reduce The Appearance Of My Overbite?

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013
Q.

Hi there, I wondered if you could help me? I have a mild overjet ( I think about 3mm) and an overbite ( only a few mm of my lower teeth show when I bite down.) I think my overbite is partly down to my front teeth being relatively long.
I do believe that I have nice teeth otherwise. They are quite straight etc and I do take good care of them.

I would like to know if I could improve this with veneers/ crowns/ overlaying veneers over my teeth. I know it wouldn’t correct it completely. I would also like to widen my smile, which I know can be helped with veneers or is there anything else you can suggest that I can maybe have a little look into? Thank you for your advice in advance.

Is There A Surgical Alternative To Braces?

Friday, June 21st, 2013
Q.

Hi,

Im 16 years old and i still have two of my milk teeth (canines), I have gaps in all of my top teeth apart from the front two. My two adult canines have now come through my gum and are slightly covering the top of my two milk teeth canines because the adult teeth have no where else to go. My dentist has said i need a brace however it is really knocking my confidence that all of my friends have had their brace on and off and have perfect teeth and i am very aware my teeth are still not very nice. The tooth to the right of my two front teeth is pushed back from when it came down whilst a baby tooth was still there. I was wondering if there was a quick way, maybe surgery? In which i could have my milk teeth removed and adult teeth pulled down. Also a quicker way of bringing the pushed back tooth forwards?

I Have Been Told That I Am Unsuitable For Any Brace Treatment, Now What?

Thursday, June 20th, 2013
Q.

Hi, Dr Butt. I wondered if you could please advise me on something? I have crooked teeth but I have been told that I am unsuitable for any kind of braces or aligner as my top jaw is too narrow so there is no room for my teeth to actually straighten out. I had teeth removed as a child to make room for the rest to straighten out but this never happened and so I have been told I would need surgery. I don’t like the idea of surgery so am considering either implants or dentures as a total replacement. Will this be possible and which is best for the long term? I am in my early 30’s so want a long term solution.And something that would be cost efficient too, is there any treatment I can receive via finance options or anything of the sort that you know of? As I doubt any of the treatment I need would be available through the NHS. Thanks!
