What can I do about my overcrowding teeth in my mandible?

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011
Q.

I am 19 years old and I have overcrowding teeth in the mandible .
I want to have braces but I’d like to know
if this would make me lose my third molars or any other tooth as my dentist said that the overcrowding is because of their eruption or dentists can widen my mandibular arch ?
I am a second year student of dentistry but I haven’t taken any courses about prosthodontics yet!

How can I correct a cross bite where my lower jaw is stronger than my upper jaw?

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011
Q.

I have a cross bite and my lower jaw is stronge than my top. Its not very prominent but to me my teeth look uneven.I saw one dentist who said i coud have invisalin lite to treat the front area or full set to widen out my smile. i saw a 2nd dentist and they said full set only . Then finally I saw a third who said invisalign is not for me as will nned brace. He said that whilst my teeth will be straight they may not sit comfirtably so must cosider actual bracr instead. I am so confused. The first dentist who advised invisalign lite or full smile is a Platinum dentist and comes recommended. What should I do ?
Help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Besides wearing an Essix and bonded retainer what else can I do to keep my teeth in position?

Monday, March 14th, 2011
Q.

Mark, I have some questions regarding keeping teeth straight after orthodontic procedures and would be really grateful if you could answer them for my records!

1) When you straighten teeth and the process is complete, is it realistic to say that you can retain them for life using Essix and bonded retainers? Although I finished my treatment 7 years ago, I’ve noticed that although I wear my Essix retainer 3 x a week, my lower incisors get tender and keep spacing apart back and forth. This makes me really nervous knowing that despite my commitment to retention, my teeth can still move – I like them the way they are!

2) Does the quality of Essix and bonded retainers affect the teeths retention and if so, how can we be sure that we get quality retainers to keep the teeth straight?

3) As many of us live well into our 80’s and beyond, when we have orthodontic treatment when we are younger, can we really only have it done once for life? I don’t really want to repeat orthodontic treatment just because i’m going to get older but like your philosophy I believe a good smile throughout our life is worth investing in so I want to keep mine that way. Can we really keep the same results we get when we are in our 20’s in our 80’s too?

4) As I believe retention is a lifetime commitment, I want to keep my teeth straight as best I can but I know we can’t keep with the same orthodontists for life (as they retire) so are we still able to have retention appliances remade for us by other orthodontists elsewhere down the line of life? What should we do if our teeth do shift and we see a change and we don’t have an orthodontic practice anymore?

5) And finally, is there a way we can stop our teeth shifting apart from wearing our retainers religiously? I know our teeth shift with age but can we really defy the process?

I’m just thinking of the future as my teeth are top priority for me so your advise would be a gem! Thanks

Can my daughter have her teeth bonded as an alternative to braces and veneers?

Friday, March 11th, 2011
Q.

Dear Julian.
I am referring to my daughter, who has crossed teeth, and slight gapping with other teeth.
Would cosmite bonding be a suitable form of correction.
She does not want caps, and is not keen on veneers.
She is unable to have braces.
Kind regards,

Can I have my two front teeth straightened so they don’t overlap – what is the best way?

Friday, March 11th, 2011
Q.

Hi Dr.Patel, how are you? I hope your well. I am a 27yr old male living in NW London.

I have had my front two teeth overlapping each other for last 12 years since I was very young. I know I should have had braces fitted earlier on, as now Im sure it will be a longer process. Something I regret.. as I miss smiling! :-/

I am so conscious now – it is a problem, that now I wish to seek professional advice. is it too late? can I still get braces? or have them taken out and replace front two? Not sure how all this works.. I hope you can help… look forward to hearing from you. Have a great weekend 😉

Regards
