Which Way Will My Teeth Move with Six Month Smiles?

Friday, September 19th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes. I am currently in week 2 of Six Month Smiles treatment.

I am looking at my teeth, trying to imagine which ones will move, and in what direction. Will any teeth come down, will they move forward, backwards or side to side?

Is there anything I can determine, just by looking at the wires? Will my dentist have a mould of what my teeth are expected to look like at the end?

I am looking at the anchor points on my back teeth and trying to imagine the brace wire running straight. Would that give me an indication of what I can expect to move and in which direction? Thanks a lot, I’d be happy to receive your advice.

How Much Does It Cost To Have A Retainer Fitted And Will I Have To Wear It Forever?

Friday, May 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. I would like my front teeth to be straightened but I am not sure if the six month smile will be the right treatment for me. Do you have to have the brace tightened like with conventional braces and how much does it cost each time this is done? Also, how much will it cost to have a retainer fitted and will I have to wear it forever? If the brace is the same colour as the teeth, is there a danger that the brace will become stained by food and drink?

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

My Gums Constantly Ache. Shall I Give Up And Go For Full Dentures And Have All My Teeth Removed?

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014
Q.

Hi, I need some advice please. I’m 45 and I have struggled with my teeth from being a little girl. My front teeth were knocked out due to an accident when I was 8. I have been told ever since I was a little girl that I have poor teeth and gums. I don’t smoke. I drink occasionally. I feel all my life I have had treatment on my teeth or gums. I’ve just paid out again over £1500 to have deep cleaning on my gums (which as you will be aware is not a nice experience) my front teeth have formed a gap. I’m thinking of the 6 month smile, which again will cost a lot of money. Then my front 4 teeth which are caps, replaced with new ones. Not sure of cost of that yet. I know some of my teeth are going to have to be removed as they are very painful. My gums constantly ache. Shall I give up and go for full dentures and have all my teeth removed? The thought of no more pain is very appealing. Help!

I Like The Sound Of Invisible Braces As I Would Be Self-Conscious About How I Looked With Normal Ones. How Much Do They Cost?

Monday, February 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi, I’ve just been looking up about the ‘6 month smile’ treatment and wanted to know a little more information, such as how they look, can you see much? Also cost, as I don’t have a lot of money? I’m 21 years old and I’m unhappy about how my teeth look. They’re really overcrowded. I wouldn’t consider a brace any more, as I would be self-conscious about how it looked to others, seeing as I’m older now. I liked the sound of not being able to see anything in my mouth with the 6 month smile. If you could get back that would be great with any information that would be great, thanks.

I Am 50 And I Still Have A Baby Tooth That Now Needs To Come Out. What Solutions Do You Suggest I Go With To Close The Gap?

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013
Q.

I am 50 years old with a baby tooth that never fell out next to my top big tooth it is now discoloured, loose and I got an estimate for Invisalign which is crazy I have no orthodontic insurance. What would be your suggestion for fixing this? Invisalign, 6 month smile? I cut all my food, I don’t smile and now I’m at the point that I need to get something done. The dentist said he doesn’t know how the tooth hasn’t fallen out yet. You’d really be helping me.

I’d Like To Make A Query About 6 Month Smile Treatment, I Want To Switch Treatment From Braces, Hoping To Cut The Costs. Would This Work?

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I’d like to make a query about 6 month smile. Would it be cheaper with NHS and could I send in recent jaw and teeth pictures taken by a orthodontist for your expertise as I am not able to attend? I’ve done the same thing with other clinics who excepted them.

I am currently wearing Damonite Braces (white base with a metal wire running over) and was told for my condition it would take at least 1 year – 1.5 years.

I was wondering would it be possible to keep the current base and modify it, somehow switching over to 6 month smile. I am hoping to cut the costs as I have already invested so far.

I would be present for treatment time, but just now I am not in England to attend a consultation.

Please confirm that you received this message. Kind regards.

I’m Put Off By The Dental Prices To Fix My Crooked Smile. What Is The Cost Of The Six Month Smile Treatment?

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013
Q.

Hi, Dr Hughes. I have severely crooked teeth due to overcrowding, a couple are slightly twisted with one tooth pushed behind the rest, I had a consultation with a cosmetic dentist a while ago but was put off by the prices! This is causing me to suffer from a very low self esteem because I feel uncomfortable when I smile and would love to have this problem fixed. Would it be possible for me to have the six month smile treatment? I also have limited means, so I would only be able to pay monthly. How much would this cost (monthly) approximately.
Kind regards.

My upper 4 front teeth are protruding, what would be the best type of treatment for me?

Friday, August 31st, 2012
Q.

Hello, I am male and 21 years old. My upper front four teeth have drifted outside alignment by about 1.5 cm from their normal position. I want to make them shift back to their normal position. I have heard about some available treatments relating to this problem but i am still getting confused about what to do and what steps to take next. What can kind of treatments do you think will help me? are braces helpful in all situations? and what are the other available treatments that can be beneficial for me?. can a bridge be placed to replace the teeth instead or is that a silly idea? what do you think? I need all the help I can get so thank you.
