My Daughter’s Teeth Are Still Moving Despite Her Fixed Braces, Is This Normal?

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013
Q.

Hi
My daughter is 16 and has had fixed braces twice now for protruding front teeth. after the first time she was told to wear retainers only in the evening for a year. during this year i noticed that her teeth had moved to their previous position before braces. after complaining to the orthodontists he again fitter fixed braces for a year after pulling 4 teeth. he has now taken the fixed braces off and given her the invisalign to wear only at night. she has been wearing the invisalign for 4 months and her teeth have moved forward again. he says that it is acceptable for them to protrude 4mm but i feel that after all this treatment they should be in line with the back teeth and not protrude at all. is 4mm acceptable or should she have further treatments? is invisalign the right way to go?

What are the costs and payment plans for Invisalign to correct overbite and a gap in my front teeth?

Friday, February 15th, 2013
Q.

I received orthodontic treatment as a kid to correct my overbite (in part due to thumb sucking) and a gap in my 2 front teeth. I have a fixed retainer on the back of my top 6 teeth which has not been maintained properly as gradually the gap has reappeared (in the front & at sides) and my teeth protrude (overbite is back) I’m interested in Invisalign to correct both of these issues, please can I have a guide as to cost & payment plans? Also, I show a lot of gum when I smile which is something I have always been conscious & hinders me naturally smiling, especially in photos. I would really like to have a procedure as part of my treatment to perfect my overall smile, is this possible at the Chelmsford surgery? Thanks in advance.

Should I Get Invisalign?

Thursday, January 24th, 2013
Q.

A very warm hello to you Dr. Moore,

I am in need of help regarding what would be the best possible treatment for a missing tooth/gap at the front of my teeth. I also need my teeth straightened and was thinking about Invisalign, are there any other treatments which would be best to straighten teeth? I guess I don’t want such a long treatment. I just have a missing tooth at the front and two others that were pulled but apart from that they rest are fine but need straightening.

I appreciate your time and help,

Thank you kindly, I look forward to reading your response.

Do you think it is plausible to wear Invisalign for three weeks?

Friday, November 9th, 2012
Q.

Dear Dr Safeer Butt,
I had Inman Aligner treatment immediately followed by a bonded retainer fixed behind my upper front teeth.

14 months later, my two front teeth have moved slightly back towards their old position.

I visited my Cosmetic Dentist who assured me the bonding has not deteroriated or come loose, suggesting that the wire has not been sufficiently strong.

His proposed solution is for me to wear an Invisalign brace full time for three weeks, and then at night for double protection this is while I keep my fixed retainer in place.

Does this sound plasuible to you? I would have thought that the Invisalign brace would be pointless while the wire is in place, but at the same time I didn’t think I’d see any tooth movement either.

I’d appreciate your opinion.

Kind Regards,
Robert

Q.

Hi there, I’m interested in Invisalign and have looked into this for a while, please could you advise me as to how much Invisalign can or is suppose to cost if I require an average of 30 sets of retainers and no other special work or special attachments.

Is there anything I should be aware of when looking for an Invisalign practitioner in my area?

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012
Q.

Hello,
I am currently looking to have invisalign braces as my dentist has recommended that that is the best option for my required result. I am unsure which practitioner to choose in my area. Are there any guidelines/ qualifications i should be looking for and is there anything i should be aware of? Are there any other forms of cosmetic tooth straightening available similar to this?

What would happen if I forgot to remove the invisalign aligners when drinking coffee?

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012
Q.

I have had invisalign braces fitted this week to improve the bottom front teeth, my question is: what would happen if I forget to take them out and then have a coffee for example with them in? I sometimes forget when I am busy that I have them in and am so worried I will take a hot drink by mistake? Honestly, they were right when they said they were totally invisible haha i really keep forgetting that they’re there!! I read that it can cause them to stain, which will lose their translucency.. Just one more question, when treatment is complete would the teeth ever move back? Thank you. I really appreciate your feedback as I am really excited about the outcome.

Should I get Damon or Invisalign Lite braces?

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012
Q.

I damaged my front teeth in a cycling accident in Dec 2011. UR1 was fractured, breaking off about 2/3 of the crown, This has a temporary composite build up with a plan to crown it. UR1 was left retroclined and my endodontist recommended having it straightened. UL1 needed RCT by endodontist as I had a nasty abcess about a week after the accident.

I’d like advice on othodontic devices. My GP dentist referred me to a hospital orthodontist who suggested either add a veneer to the retroclined tooth, a 6 tooth train track for 4 months or a short course of Invisalign (or similar). He also commented that I had mild crowding on the lower incisors. I have always had a big gap between my upper central incisors and he suggested that this could be addressed at the same time as delaing with the retroclined tooth.

I was then referred to a local private orthodontist who recommended Invisalign Lite as being the safest option for the most gentle movement and I was due to start treatment this month. However, her practice went into liquidation about a week after seeing her so had to start all over again with a new practice.

The second practice, where two orthodontists wanted to see me to consider the best options have a different view. One suggestion was to leave the upper teeth for 5 years to monitor vitality. The say Invisalign provides uncontrollable forces that might be too strong and would not prescribe this. The only brace they are prepared to use is a 6 tooth Damon for about 6 months, and at the same time recommend a 6 tooth lingual brace at the bottom as I have 90% overbite as well as crowding.

I’m struggling to find research papers on the forces provided by various systems, or safety post-trauma, but I’d welcome a view on the Invisalign Lite v Damon upper and lingual lower options. The latter is much more expensive even though only the front six teeth are being moved.

Thanks!!

Is it possible to have the Invisalign treatment when my wisdom teeth are starting to come through?

Friday, August 10th, 2012
Q.

Hello,
I have recently looked into the invisalign option to straighten six of my top front teeth, and was wondering if you could help me please. A recent dental x-ray revealed I have four wisdom teeth ready to grow out, all seemingly straight. (my dentist told me the top two and bottom right are fine; the bottom left is slightly tilted.) Is it possible to have invisalign whilst wisdom teeth are coming through, and is it possible to have the invisalign made to fit only over the teeth I require straightening, instead of the full set of top teeth?
Thank you.

Will my teeth move back into their original position if I don’t wear my Invisalign braces for 2 weeks?

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012
Q.

Hello, I have just had my bottom brace taken off and as was done with the top teeth, a fixed retainer was put in on the back of the front 4 teeth (on front 4 of top and of bottom teeth) and a mould was taken of the teeth for a plastic brace. My invisalign brace is supposed to arrive within 7 days but I am going on holiday for a week and am worried that the extra week of not wearing the invisalign will cause my teeth to move and the removable brace not to fit anymore. Will i have any problems with my removable retainer if i don’t wear it till 2 weeks after the fixed brackets were removed (keeping in mind that i have the fixed retainers on the back)??? Thank you for your advice.
