Is There An Alternative to a Brace?

Thursday, August 6th, 2015
Q.

After an accident when I was 9 years old, now at 33 years I have a composite filling on my front left tooth and a porcelain crown on my front right. Both have had nerves removed and the right is secured with a pin. They both stick out a lot and when I bite, I can get my index finger in the gap between the bottom teeth and my upper gum behind the front teeth. I hate the idea of a brace, is there an alternative? I’m happy to have them removed!

Monday, January 7th, 2013
Q.

I have a questions about having several metal based crowns and the “Oral Galvanic Effect” caused by having too much metal in ones mouth. What are strong alternatives? It is a very long and painful story but I need 25 crowns! I know it seems outrageous but I have to have a full restoration because of sever TMJ Disorder. I have all temps now and i am afraid to put THAT much metal in my mouth. 400 words is a lot!

Do Mercury fillings have a adverse effect on multiple sclerosis sufferers ?

Thursday, May 5th, 2011
Q.

Hello I have suffered with multiple sclerosis for some years now . I recently read an article saying that mercury can have adverse effects because I suffer with M.S.
How true is this? I have a real dental phobia and finding out this has made me worried.

I have just had a deep metal filling
should I be concerned or not because last time I had the metal filling removed and replaced with a white filling that’s why I am worried cause as i suffer already with MS i am scared this will make my MS worse. Is there any alternative fillings i can have that are completely safe or would i have to pay extra for non mercury fillings. 
Regards

My denture is hideous and affects my speech, why wasn’t I offered a bridge as an alternative?

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011
Q.

I’ve just had a denture fitted to replace 2 missing teeth which are cloese to the front. It looks and fels hideous and it affects my speech. I know it will take some getting used to but I was never offered the choice of having a bridge. Is there any reason why?

Can you recommend a way to replace two missing top teeth – not dentures or implants?

Monday, April 11th, 2011
Q.

i am missing 2 teeth on top.it is not the 2 front teeth, but the ones to the left and right of them. What would be the best fix for them. I don’t want no partial and i cant afford implants . One of the front ones has also started to discolor like it is going bad so i might have to have it removed too.

Are there surgical alternatives to wearing a holding brace?

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
Q.

I have just turned 18 and have been through the first stage of my treatment at my orthodontists. It was a twin block brace, which was in for 14 months and corrected my overbite. I was happy to get out, unfortunately I didnt realise I would have a wear a holding brace with a big plastic block which covers the roof of my mouth and hangs below my front teeth. This brace will then be fitted with a fixed brace to straighten them while maintaining my gums position. I find this brace incredibly intrusive and I would like to know if this treatment is completely necessary. If theres any surgery that can be done and what are the expenses if so.
