My Teeth Are Pushing Further Forwards, What Treatment Is Best?

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013
Q.

hi i was just wondering if you could hep me. I am currently 27 years old and am unhappy with my teeth due to the fact that i was a thumbsucker untill about the age of 23. Although i had a brace as a child so do have quite straight teeth i can see that they are now further frward than they were and wondered if its possible to get them pushed back at all or what options there wud be to deal with them. As i say i have only had slight movement from one of my teeth in terms of crossing and do therfore have a straight smile but just generally would like them moving back si they are less dominant as i only have a fairly small face..
Any advise or help would be appreciated thankyou.

Can a tooth with lingual gum tissue that us tilting be saved by an orthodontic?

Thursday, February 14th, 2013
Q.

I’ve been in Sure Smile braces for a year. My mouth is in worse shape now. My bite is off and my lower central tooth on the left was moved where the bottom of the root started bulging lingually. My gum tissie receeded 4mms or more; most of the root is now exposed. (maybe 3mm’s of gum tissue remains linually, the gum tissue on buccal side is fully present) I am so scared I will lose this tooth. I scheduled with my orthodontist’s partner and asked him to take over my case. I will see him on Tuesday for a new wire. What are your thoughts? Do you think a tooth with little lingual gum tissue and is tilting and the root is bulging can be orthodontically saved, or did the orthodontist do irreversible damage? Please, your thoughts on this situation.
Thank you!

Can I Afford Invisible Braces On Job Seekers Allowance?

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr. Patel, I am 20 years old and receiving income based job seekers allowance . If I was to get invisible braces, how much would that cost? I’ve had braces before when I was at school and they were free of charge. However, my wisdom teeth have come out and I’ve been told from my dentist that I’ll have to have them removed due to not enough room. So therefore, because of my wisdom teeth growing, they’ve pushed the rest of my teeth slight forward, so I’m thinking of getting braces again so I can have straight teeth. Anything you can suggest will be helpful, thanks in advance

Why Are My Teeth Coming Forward?

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013
Q.

Dear Dr. Moore,Greetings of the day!!Dr. I have had crooked teeth and so presently m undergoing ortho treatment since last 1 month. My age is 27 years. I have got self ligating brackets with IPR and no extraction. But now i feel my upper teeth are coming forward. I am kind of worried that this is not part of the process of aligning and that something is going wrong?? I know you must be thinking why I am not consulting my orthodontist doctor.. And that’s true. And I will be doing but still, for my own satisfaction I want to know. Hope you will help me and can give me some answers!! Thanking you in anticipation. I look forward to reading your response. Thank you very much

I’m looking for braces that won’t affect my appearance, what would you suggest?

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012
Q.

Hello,
I am desperate to get braces, however, I only have two teeth out of place but they have a big effect on my smile as they are at the front. They are the two teeth next to my two front big teeth, the problem is they are slightly further back causing my canines to look like fangs. My bottom teeth aren’t crooked. I was wondering if the treatment would be a shorter amount of time as there isn’t much to move and what type of brace would be best for me? I am a teenager and would want the shortest amount of time and least changing to my appearance :-)I am still in school and don’t want anything too noticeable. Many thanks for you help.

I’m 13 and looking into receiving braces, can I get them for free?

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012
Q.

hey there dr patel, i wanted to ask if i can i get braces for free if im under 18? and do you do a monthly plan? The thing is that my teeth are not straight and it is worrying me because i don’t want problems when i am older.  i am under 18 and i dont mind going for 6-month smiles or invisalign but obviously it is more expensive to have them,  so maybe a monthly plan will be better? and i also wanted to ask if you do metal braces? because many teens here have metal braces but i wouldn’t mind and by the way im only 13.
that’s about it really i hope you reply soon and urm, where are you located? 🙂

thanks in advance 🙂
take careee

I am 55, is that too old to receive braces?

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012
Q.

Hello there Dr Hughes. I am 55 yrs old. I always had beautiful straight teeth but now my 22 front teeth seem to have receded by the teeth beside them which have come forward so that on sometimes when I smile they look like they are missing.I also have receding gums. I would like to get my teeth nice and straight again. I don’t really want to have veneers as I have heard so many negative things about them. Do you think I am too old for orthodontic treatment as in having a brace? Do you have any other suggestions. Many thanks, I await your reply.

Is there a way I can move one of my back teeth to replace a missing front tooth?

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012
Q.

I have big problems with my teeth right now. One of my teeth is not aligned with the other, not because it really is misaligned but I lost the front one. I used to have a wisdom tooth on that part, but I had it removed because it looked very ugly. It is where the biggest and pointed tooth is and I have two of them in one part of the gum. Since I lost the front one, the only tooth left on that part is the back one. It isn’t nice to look at. Are there methods to forward that tooth? Many thanks to you for the advice in advance
