How Long Would It Take To Open A 4mm Space, In Order To Receive A Dental Implant?

Friday, August 9th, 2013
Q.

Hi there, when i was 12 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 18 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 the braces how long it would take to open up roughly 4mm of space for dental implants to be placed? This work is taking forever, I just want it finished!! I feel like my whole life is on hold! Anyway, thank you very much for your help in advance. – See more at: http://www.cosmeticdentistryguide.co.uk/blog/can-braces-be-placed-over-an-already-existing-maryland-bridge/#sthash.LDK3WyWa.dpuf

If A Trainee Gives Me Orthodontic Treatment Will I receive It At A Reduced Cost?

Thursday, July 18th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Please could you tell me the best way for the 6mm gap between my front teeth to be closed? Its really started to affect my confidence and very rarely want to smile,I am 45 years old, wore a metal brace as a teenager which successfully worked, but then never wore a retainer. I read that being seen by a student/trainee, costs for treatment are reduced. Or would this kind of treatment have to be carried out in a training hospital? I would appreciate some professional advice, I’m desperate to receive some treatment but don’t earn a lot of money so that’s why I’m trying to opt for a cheaper form. Unless you can recommend some sort of financial scheme I can get a hold of? As I said, I would love some advice. So, thank you for your time.

I Have Severe Tongue Thrusting Habits That I Can’t Control, Please Help!

Friday, June 28th, 2013
Q.

hi
i have lots of gaps and spaces in my teeth and they are oushed forward and i cant stand them.
i have had braces before when i was 14 they were fixed metal braces but i never finised the treatment as i lost my retainers.

i have tried my hardest not to suck my tongue to the point i get jaw ache in the morning. But i have since relapsed and my teeth have been pushed out even further.

i suck my tongue and i cannot stop. i have looked into this and i have seen there might be some sort tongue retainer i could use to train my tongue to stop pushing my teeth forward subconciously.

please would you be able to recommend treatment for me as i want braces but do not want to do braces first without trying to treat my problem first.

hope you can help

There Was A Wire Attached To My Bottom Teeth After I Received Braces, What Is This?

Friday, June 14th, 2013
Q.

Hi Doctor Butt, I wondered if you could please advise me on something? I had braces when I was a teenager to straighten my teeth. When it was removed, the dentist attached a wire to the inside of my bottom teeth, which has kept them in place. I am now 27 and this wire is still there. I have moved several times since I was younger and am not currently registered with a dentist or having regular checkups. I find it quite hard to brush my bottom teeth properly and I’m worried that it is causing damage. I have such self-confidence issues and don’t know how to go about getting myself sorted! Also I’m getting married next year, and want my teeth to be nice. Is there anything you can suggest? Thank you in advance for your advice.

One Of My Teeth Hides Behind Another, What Options Are Available?

Thursday, May 30th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I have a tooth that is behind my front tooth and behind what I think is a canine tooth, I have had self-esteem problems with this tooth for years because it looks like the tooth is not there, I am wanting a cosmetic treatment to solve the problem but I am not sure which treatment is most suitable for me. I am also a student so cost will be an issue. Could you possibly recommend a treatment that will work for me and that is particularly cheap? Also if you could give me an estimation of what price you think it is likely to be that would be brilliant too? Thanks, hope to hear from you soon.

Would Bonding And Veneers Be My Best Options For Filling The Gaps?

Thursday, May 16th, 2013
Q.

I have a 2 mm gap between my front teeth and then less than 1 mm on either side of that, everything else is straight and normal. What would be the best treatment in this case? I don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on braces or Invisalign for something so small. I read something about bonding and veneers, but I’m not sure if those are real options. I’m not an expert though, I’m sure you’ve had more patients in my position. So if you could offer any advice then that would be truly appreciated. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank You!

Can I Get My Overbite Fixed Without Having My Jaw Broken?

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013
Q.

Hello i ve been searching the internet for other options on jaw alignment. When i went through my treatment with the orthodontist to straighten my teeth they told me that my bottom jaw was about 1 cm behind my top jaw causing a very noticable overbite which i am not happy with and is affecting my confidence. They told me about this and said easiest and quickest way to fix this was to have fixed braces top and bottom to align my teeth and then after have my bottom jaw broken and moved forward. I really want to sort this problem out but i dont like the idea of this option and hope you know of any other options that could possibly work for me. I think i would get what ever treatment free because im only 17 and still get free NHS treatment until 18 or 19.
Cheers any advice will be great.

Can my retainer bridge the gap?

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013
Q.

Hello there Dr, I had my braces taken off almost a year ago. I only wore removable retainers for a month and then discontinued using them. However after a year my front two teeth had started to have little gap between them. I therefore began to wear my retainers during the night and it fixed in. But when I take them off in the morning and try to eat it starts to shift again. 

So my question is , how long should I wear my retainers to fill the gap? Is it possible to treat with the retainers long term or should I go back to my orthodontist for further treatment?

Thank you

My Orthodontic Treatment Left Me Unhappy, Can It Be Reversed?

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013
Q.

Hello,

About 2 years ago I finished orthodontic treatment to have my congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisors replaced by my canines and had two of my bottom premolars extracted to have this done. I have since been unhappy with the results and feel like I have had a change in facial shape for the worse (however I am unsure whether this is due to the braces or not). I was wondering if there is any way to undo this treatment in the future so my teeth are where they are meant to be, to replace my missing teeth with implants and whether or not this could improve the shape of my face. I was also wondering if you could estimate how much this would cost as I assume I could not get braces on the NHS again.

Thank you,
