I used to have severely protruding front teeth

Monday, November 10th, 2008
Q.
I used to have severely protruding front teeth and had my first brace fitted when I was 9. My treatment was finally completed when I was 12. However I am now 20 and although my teeth are still relatively straight since my wisdom teeth have come through they seem to have pushed my front teeth forward. I’m quite conscious and don’t want to go down the route of fixed metal braces again and therefore I am wondering what other choices of treatment are available? Thank you.

my dentist suggested that i start with invisalign

Thursday, November 6th, 2008
Q.
Hiya, my dentist has just suggested that i start with invisalign. at a cost of almost £3000. i’m 19 and currently unemployed so that is a huge cost to me. I have some sort of problem (which i will be seeing a doctor about asap) which means i cannot breath through my nose very well so i tend to breath through my mouth and have done as long as i can remember. i have been told that this is the reason for the dental problems i have. i have a narrow top jaw which caused 2 of my teeth (the ones either side of my 2 front teeth) to come through behind the front ones. i had orthodontic treatment beginning with an expandable retainer from age 10 (i was made fun of because i couldnt talk around it so i often took it out) after some time i then had fixed braces which for a while had a spring in the roof of my mouth in order to expand it a little more i think. after just under a year with those on (the elastic band kind) they were removed and i had lovely straight teeth…. for about 2 weeks, maybe a month before the two offending teeth began to move back again i had another chunky plastic/wire retainer which i did wear and my orthodontist reduced the time i had to wear it towards the end of my treatment (every other day… just nights etc) my teeth now are nowhere near as bad as they were originally, i just have a slight crossbite involving those two teeth, but i really wish they were straight again. i saw in one of your other answers about permenant retainers, like a wire stuck behind the teeth to prevent them moving, my cousin in america has one of those and i always thought i should have had that done too since my teeth had moved so drastically and i feared they’d be more likely to move back. i was never offered the option to have a permenant retainer else i surely would have gone for it. should i have been? i also wonder if the breathing problem may have had some impact on whether or not my teeth moved after treatment? is £3000 (i think it might have been £2800 but even so) a reasonable price for my treatment and is it worth doing or will my teeth just move again? i do hope you can offer some guidance, many thanks.

I have an overbite and have had braces

Thursday, November 6th, 2008
Q.
Hi I have an overbite and have had braces when I was younger. This was only on my top teeth and it was not fixed braces just a retainer. I did have teeth taken out at the time. Over the years I have been to a few dentists who have advised that I would need braces to fix the overbite. I recently visited and orthodontists at my local hospital and they advised that I would need fixed braces for about 18 months, they would then operate and move the bottom jaw which will mean staying in overnight. After that I would need a retainer full time for 3 months and then only at night. Overall the process seems to take about 3 years. I planned to get married next year and really don’t want to wearing braces on my wedding day. What I would like is a second opinion, is this the only option?

Q.
I have spaced teeth at the front of my mouth – in between upper incisors. This gap seems to be getting larger as the years go by. How much will it cost to get this corrected?

I really want to straighten a gap in my teeth

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008
Q.
I really want to straighten a gap in my teeth which has bothered me for years, I heard about invisalign from my dentist but he quoted me a price in the region of 4000 pounds which is not something I can afford. A clinic running a special offer have quoted less than half that but want me to pay up front. Is this a bit dodgey? Would I be better to save and go with someone who is charging the normal price rather than gamble on the cheaper option? This is still a massive amount of money for me.

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008
Q.
Hi, I am 21 years old and i have one tooth out of line on the bottom, which makes me very paranoid, and too make things worse i recently chipped it when eating on a metal fork. I just wondered what the option are for me?Would it be bst to have teeth taken out at the back to allow room for the one and the front to fit back in, or would i need a brace??? I understand that this type of treatment in very unlikey available on the NHS as it as seen as purelu cosmetic. I look forwards to hearing fromm you

Hi im 19 years old and have previously had orthodontic treatment

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008
Q.
Hi, im 19 years old, and have previously had orthodontic treatment. However, I have a couple of problems. Firstly, my front two teeth are very big compared to my other teeth and my mouth. Is there any way to fix this? Also, my smile arch is too narrow, so when I smile, you can hardly see the molars. Being only 19, I’m not able to pay the astronomical prices that I’ve seen from many cosmetic practices. Would you be able to advise me? Thank you
