Should I Go to a Dentist or a GP with My Dental Issue?

Thursday, May 21st, 2015
Q.

I am 55 and over the past 5 years I have noticed my underbite getting worse! I had a glucose test, it was negative. I need surgery on it. I am getting pain in my jaw,and it’s popping all the time. It gives me headaches .I am very self conscious about it too! It affects my eating and speaking . Should I go back to my dentist for another referral? Or should I go to a GP? I’m getting desperate! My bottom teeth are way in front of my top teeth,

How Can I Get Jaw Surgery in the UK?

Monday, February 16th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have a class 3 underbite and was evaluated to have jaw surgery years ago in my country. I had braces on and regular visits for 6 months. Then I moved, and tried to find a dentist that could carry on the treatment but couldn’t find any. So since I settled in the UK 3 years ago, I found out that it was very difficult to get the jaw surgery done on the NHS. I got my braces removed and gave up for some time, but I feel so over-conscious about the problem that I cant even smile when taking pictures. The fact that people still make fun of my problem affects me sometimes. I would like to do something about it.
Regards.

Can Veneers Treat an Underbite?

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014
Q.

Good morning Dr Hughes. Can you advise me on if I can have veneers fitted to effectively correct am underbite (my bottom teeth sit over my top teeth)?  I wish to improve my teeth with veneers, but with the top teeth veneers appearing over the bottom ones, rather than the way my teeth sit now. Is this possible, and how would it be achieved?

Also, would you be able to advise me on the costing of this? Thank you in advance.

Hi. I Have A Mild Underbite Which I’d Like To Fix. Can This Be Done Without Dental Surgery?

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr,

I’m a 34 years old woman.

I have a mild underbite which I’d like to be fix (or improve the look of).

I’d like to know if it is really possible to fix the look of a mild underbite, (narrow upper jaw) without surgery?

I’ve done some research and I found a few places in the US where they do it.
I can’t find any cosmetic dental surgery where they fix the underbite look without surgery.

I’m really looking forward to hearing back from you.

Many thanks.

Hey There. My Smile Doesn’t Match Up After Having Braces. I Was Wondering If This Could Be Fixed?

Monday, August 18th, 2014
Q.

Hey there.

When I was younger, perhaps around 14, (I’m 26 now) I had a tooth taken out on the nhs that was growing the wrong way inside my gum and pushing all the other teeth out of place.
I’ve had braces to sort an under-bite also and I’ve tried to straighten all the rest. Subsequently I feel very little was done. My bite is okay but my jaw is all out of line. In the middle of my bottom jaw is a tooth. So the line that should match up with my top teeth doesn’t match. The fang tooth on my top left side isn’t there and makes my face so different looking to the other side of my face. I feel so ugly with it all over the place. I was wondering if this sounds like it is fixable? I’d give anything to have lovely teeth and not want to hide them.

Many thanks.

Hello, Dr. Moore! Please Tell Me If There Is A Non-Surgical Way To Bring My Upper Set Forward And Down?

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014
Q.

Hello, Dr. Moore!
Please tell me if there is a non-surgical way to bring upper teeth forward and down? I feel like my teeth are sort of too deep in my mouth. And when I open my mouth all you can see is my lower teeth (probably because they are retro-clined) and no upper teeth. I want that changed. I was thinking, if I got braces and it tilted my lower teeth outwards to fix the position of my retro-clined teeth that would cause a slight under-bite and could be treated with elastics. But the question is would the elastics actually bring upper teeth forward or lower teeth backward to fix the underbite?
I would really want to push my teeth out at least a little bit and bring upper teeth down because I love smiling so much but when I sometimes see photos of my smile I think I should stop.

I Have Confidence Issues As I Have An Underbite And A Small Jaw. Could I Get This Sorted Through The NHS?

Thursday, January 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi, I am 21 years old and have an under-bite and also a small top jaw. I got told I could have it on the NHS but my parents were too worried about the potential side effects of having it done so they paid for my to have an upper brace to sort out my top teeth. However, my confidence is still very low and now wish I had had it done. I emailed my old orthodontists to enquire whether I can have this procedure now. They said I couldn’t have it done any more as I am over 18 but I recall my orthodontist saying I still could due to how bad my jaw(s) are. So now I am very confused, please help!

I Have Recently Got A Removable Retainer After Wearing A Brace For Six Years. My Teeth Are Wobbly, Should I Be Worried?

Thursday, October 31st, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Shaffie, I’m wondering if you can help me. I had braces for six years and removed them about three years ago.  I had them removed and put in a permanent retainer (a wire behind my teeth). My bottom teeth shifted forward (Class III underbite) so they removed the retainer and gave me a removable retainer to wear for a few months. However, it makes me feel like my teeth are very wobbly and loose. Is this normal or should I be concerned? Is there any risk that my teeth are so weak they could fall off if I bite something too hard? Any information would be great, thanks.

Hi, I Have A Slight Overbite And I’m Looking Into Getting It Rectified. Can I Send You Photos So You Can Assess Which Treatment Options Are Viable?

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013
Q.

Hello Mark, I have a slight under-bite and was looking in to getting it rectified. I recently visited two orthdontists, both of whom thought that though the surgery was an option, a braces program of 18 months would correct it. Just to cover all angles, can veneers give the appearance of an under-bite correction? From internet browsing it seems some say yes , and others are saying no! I’ve got some pictures I can send to you – I know a closer examination would be needed but I’m just curious at this stage of what kind of treatment options are available to me! Many thanks, it would be great to hear your feedback regarding this.

Is My Dentist Offering Me The Correct Treatment For My Underbite?

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I have a underbite I think so when I smile I grin instead of smiling. I recently had a consultation with a dentist which was a bit rushed but he said veneers would be better than a brace as my teeth are also discoloured.

Is this common as I want the correct treatment not the correct treatment for his wallet. I’m going to see another dentist for a second opinion or would an orthodontist be a better option.

I want a nice top teeth smile.

Thanks, look forward to hearing from you soon.
