How Can I Get Help With My Missing Teeth?

Friday, March 13th, 2015
Q.

I am a 32 year old female who has lost her front bridge because of a car crash. I am now on jobseekers and also getting bullied (the police are helping). I started to self harm and I hate myself for starting that. I do not want to seem vain but I am missing 3 teeth in the front. Everyday life is hard to deal with. My wish was to have an family but I no longer want that now as I think who would want someone like me with no teeth? Please help me, I really don’t want to give up on life. I do not know how or where to start. I need any help or info. Many thanks, looking forward to hearing from anyone.

I Regret Not Getting Braces When I Was Younger. I’m 19 Now And I Never Smile. What Do You Feel Is The Best Thing To Do?

Thursday, July 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have been self-conscious about my teeth my whole life. I refused to have braces when I was younger because I didn’t want the embarrassment of people noticing them and then noticing my teeth. Now I’m 19 years old and realise it was the biggest mistake I ever made. I never smile because of how my teeth look and it makes me really unhappy on a daily basis. What do you feel the best thing I could do is? Thanks.

I Have A Protruding Tooth That Makes Me Self Conscious When I Smile. Is It Safe To Remove? What Can Be Done To Help?

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013
Q.

Hello Doctor, I am a 38-year-old female who has one protruding upper incisor that grew before I lost my milk teeth. The rest of my teeth are fine. I had tried wearing braces once several years ago, but the separators the orthodontist used to create gaps between my teeth didn’t work. There isn’t much space between my teeth, and they are otherwise quite strong. I don’t really want to have the protruding incisor extracted because I feel all my teeth will become loose, however, I still want to make my upper row of teeth uniform because I am very-self-conscious when I smile. The protruding tooth does not create problems with closing my mouth, but I’d still like to fix it. Please can you advise me on what kind of treatment is best for me, where I could get it done and how much it would cost? Thank you.

What’s the best method for closing a large gap between two front teeth?

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012
Q.

Hiya Dr Moore I was wondering if you could help me with a problem? Here it is: my teeth are fairly straight but I have quite a big gap between my two front teeth which is making me very self conscious and I am wondering what procedure would be best to close this gap up I have been meaning to look into this for a while now and don’t have any ideas of what you could do, if you could let me know what would be best to do it would be great as i don’t know how to go about getting treated etc. I’m looking for something that can be done quickly as it’s really getting me down now and I’m fed of horrid remarks. Thank you very much for your time.

Are there any quick solutions for overcrowded teeth?

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011
Q.

In a few months time I’ll turn 18 and feel that my teeth are too overcrowded for conventional braces to align them in a short amount of time (which is why I deeply regret not getting them a few years ago). My smile is the main cause of my lack of confidence in social situations and I feel too embarassed to visit my dentist in regards to fixing it. My top set of teeth are a lot worse than my bottom set as one tooth is a lot further back than the others, causing an overlap. I’ve researched into veneers available on the NHS and feel this could be a suitable option as I want the treatment to be over as soon as possible. I’ve also become more aware of slightly wobbly teeth but am not sure whether this is just a subconscious thought. As it is only the front 6 on the top set and front 4 on the bottom set of my teeth that aren’t aligned, I’ve also looked into the 6 month smile braces but it all seems to good to be true. What do you think is the best option for me?

I am a mature student and my teeth make me feel depressed – can I still get treatment on the NHS?

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011
Q.

Hello, I have just turned 19 years old and I’v been very self conscious of my teeth for years and even been bullied when I was younger, which led to moving schools, but the bullying still continued which affected my attendence and the choice of going straight to college when I was 16. I have now been in college since September and have recently had some harsh comments made about my teeth by a class member which has really knocked my self-confidence down even more but I really don’t want it to ruin my education this time. When I was 13/14 I was refered to an orthadontist by my dentist where they took an X-Ray and a mould of my teeth and told me I needed an operation to remove a canine tooth which never came through as it is stuck up in the roof of my mouth before I could have braces as there is a chance it could come through later in life, also my mouth is overcrowded and needed a couple of teeth removed at the same time. I could of had the chance to have all this done privatley as I was under 16 and my problem was pretty serious, but I was young and at the time had a strong fear of needles and seriously regret not having it done. As my problem is quite serious, I was wondering if I could have this done on the NHS as I cannot afford to pay thousands to go private as I am only a student, and live at home with my mum who is currently recieving benefits. Also it is seriously effecting my self esteem levels and making me feel severly depressed in myself.
Many thanks.

I can’t afford to have my bridge replaced but it looks awful, can it be made to look normal?

Saturday, December 4th, 2010
Q.

Dr.Solanki,A year and a half ago,my regular dentist made me a bridge of 6 upper teeth,I have been unhappy since.I have expressed to him that when I DON’T smile big and when I’m talking,it looks like I don’t have any teeth!The teeth are perfectly aligned and look nice at the gumline but I can bite down on something flat and it is obvious they are arched upward.I told him this shortly after it was made but he just now finally tells me he can add on to my existing bridge with some substance to make them longer, and if it does not work he can remove the added on part and my bridge will not be damaged.Can this be done sucessfuly,look normal and hold up,and be removed without any damage?I cannot afford to replace this one(he says it cannot be removed anyway,and he has’nt offered)but this is interfering with my self confidence that I was supposed to be gaining from this procedure. Please help!
