My mouth is crowded with teeth so should I need to go bridges or braces?

Sunday, October 4th, 2009
Q.
I have a dilemma. i knew i needed braces since i was 13, but when it came time to do it i backed out for asthetic reasons and i didnt want to be picked on in school. now im 24 years old and im angry with myself because my teeth are still crooked and they could have been straight a long time ago. now theres another problem..im getting a sore jaw because of the pressure of my teeth. i had a consultation a few years ago to get invisaligne, but the dentist told me because of the position of my front tooth i would have to go with the traditional braces-or-he could pull the crooked teeth out and go with a bridge. im really not sure what to do…my mouth is so crowded with teeth i have a slight speech impediment and i really have to concentrate not to lisp or mumble..and i fear if i get braces it will make it even worse. do you think going with a bridge would be a good idea??

Ive crooked teeth and my front teeth over laps either side should I use the bands?

Sunday, October 4th, 2009
Q.
Dear Dr. Basically here is my dilemma…i have a gap between my two front teeth and i would like it fixed… This is the problem i have a big fear of wire and needles in my mouth this means in the past braces have been difficult. I have some teeth effect bands but i am unsure of whether to use them… I have done much research and the three main problems that dentists have are that they can cause gaps either side of the teeth in question, they have been known to cause gum irritation and also that they are not a permanent solution. I have crooked teeth and my two front teeth over lap either side so the gaps arent a problem, also i would only use them durin the day between meals, this means i could be sure they do not slip near my gums. Lastly i realise that this diy dentistry would only be short term. I am basically asking what do you think for my circmstances? Should i use the bands? thanks.

How to repair crooked teeth without extracting them?

Sunday, September 20th, 2009
Q.
Hi i’ve had crooked teeth for a long time. When i was a teenager my parents couldn’t afford to get me braces, back then i didnt mind the way my teeth were i guess because i was so young i didnt care, but now i do not like smiling because my left front tooth sticks out ( i have an overjet) and its really unattractive. i am 21 years old now and i want to get them fixed but in a way scared because 3 years ago i went to an orthodontist and he told me i need 4 teeth extracted because i have severe crowding, over jet, and an over bite. i was actually hoping i would be a candidate for invislign but i wasnt. so here i am 3 years later and i want to get them fixed so bad. i just do not want to get teeth extracted. Now my question is when that orthodoctist said all that to me 3 years ago. Do you think i can be able to fix my teeth with out getting any teeth pulled out? and i just read about the 6 month smile, do you think i will be a candidate for that?.

I have 4 tooth removed nd braces fixed but my jaw looks misaligned?

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009
Q.
Hello there,i was wondering if you could help me.When i was about 12 i had 4 larger teeth removed towards the back of my mouth.2 on the top and 2 on the bottom.I had these removed due to overcrowding.I then had fixed train track braces fitted on the top and bottom of my teeth.I had these fixed for about a year but i had them removed as i was getting constant headaches and we thought this might be causing the problem.Since having the teeth removed and the braces fitted my appearence has totally changed.My jaw is completely crooked which is totally noticeable, especially in photographs where i cannot stand to look at myself.My face itself has become alot longer and thinner and the the pallet in my mouth has caved in.Instead of being a nice u shape it is much more like a v shape and it feels as though i am biting on the side of my teeth.When i have seen my dentists they say that there is nothing wrong but this has being really bothering me for years and it is my crooked jaw that really upsets me and i am desperate to try and sort this out and have a straight face again.Please can you help me.Look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

i have protruding teeth how can i get them aligned?

Monday, September 14th, 2009
Q.
Hi Dr Caplan, I sent a question about 3 weeks ago and haven’t seen a reply yet so I’m not sure if you received e-mail – apologies if you have received it twice. I am 48 years old and I lost one of my front teeth when I was about 13 years old, I had a fall and the dentist removed the broken tooth and fitted a false one on a pallet which I hated. About 17 years ago I had a bridge fitted which now needs attention as it is starting to wear badly. However my problem is that I have protruding front teeth that I would dearly love to have straightened (they are not so bad and they are not crooked in any way – I think the problem was caused with me having a dummy as a child) Am I right in thinking I cannot have an invisible brace fitted when I have a bridge? If not, what do you think my best option would be where I could have an invisible brace fitted? Can I have the bridge removed and have an implant fitted and a brace fitted then? I do hope you can help me – despite my age, my confidence is rock bottom because of this problem and I don’t want to waste anyone’s time by making an appointment. Many thanks in advance. Many thanks
