Hello Dr Moore, I would like to know if arch-wires on braces can push teeth in any direction? Like if the arch-wire pushed the teeth out too much would it then be able to move them back in again? My teeth stick out quite a lot and I’m thinking about wearing braces. Does it take a considerable amount of time to straighten teeth that stick out? Do the different types of braces work differently? I really need help with this as my teeth need sorting out. Thank you for your time.

Hi Andrew. I was just wondering if I could have braces and how much they cost? I have very crowded teeth and they are crooked and some of my teeth need positioning further forward as they are growing all over the place. I have to have two operations on my incisors because they are angled wrong. How long do you think I need braces on for? And do you think I should opt for fixed braces or clear ones?
Thank you for you time. I look forward to your advice.

Hello Dr Moore. I have a question I hope you can help me with. What material is used to fill the area that is extracted in an apicoectomy? This is after I’ve had two operations to remove cysts and I also have an amalgam packing from 1977 and 1985 in the same area. This amalgam is now fragmenting and needs to be removed. What is involved in doing this and how successful will the operation be? What is the cost of this and can it be done at a dentist surgery or hospital? I need help understand the procedure. Thank you for your time.

Hi Andrew. I’ve got two front teeth that need replacing at the moment and I am currently unemployed so I can’t afford implants. Is there anyway NHS dentist do it for free? I’ve previously changed dentist as the one before damaged rest of my front tooth by replacing them with caps and they kept on breaking the edge of the teeth. He also kept on saying no whenever I mentioned whether it was possible for me to get help with dental implants. What should I do? Thank you for taking the time to listen to me.
