Ive tiny gaps between my front 6 teeth would invisalign suit me advice

Friday, December 18th, 2009
Q.
To Dr Caplan I am going to be 18 in a week and a halfs time, and have been worried about my teeth and the appearance of my teeth from a very early age. I had “goofy teeth” – which got corrected with braces which i had when i was 13. However there other things happening, e.g.. when i was ten, i fell down and broke one of my front teeth, and had it filled out.. in which you couldnt tell that much that half of it was not real. Hoever when i had braces, it caused an abscess, and the root of the tooth was dying.. and turned dark grey.. and died. the appearnce of my grey tooth this year has been improved by firstly having re root canals twice early this yr, and then a bleaching process which i was quite happy with comparing it to the darkness before. I am now more concerned with the gaps i have around my upper teeth, ( i took my braces off around 3 or so yrs ago- however.. later on after my retainers i was still having problems with my dead tooth…and stopped wearing my retainers only after my orthodontist told me i could stop wearing them) and since.. i have tiny gaps between my front 6 teeth.. and a slightly bigger gap in between my front teeth which has made my uncomfortable to smile ifront of.. and talk to other people. I have thought about getting invisalign, though i looked at the price of an orthodontist fees aroun my area.. and i believe it said from £4,000 which i was shocked to see! .. im still 17 but im sure by the time i would get treatment it would not be viable through the NHS.. to even get braces. i’m unsure on what to get.. and ive been reserching on invisalign.. and trying to find out if it actually worth it, as it is very expensive- i know its hard to judge a course of treatment from an email,.. but was wondering whether you could perhaps suggest one nonetheless and give me some helpful advice. Thankyou and apologies for the very long email!

Can kids have Invisalign treatment?

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009
Q.
I was wanting invisiline and i was just wondering if invisline was for kids too. Also, for the majority, i have straight teeth, but there is this one crooked tooth that is in the bottom jaw towards the front and it is a little worse then the picture that is on the main website home page. Not as bad though. I was just wondering if invisiline will work for my tooth.

Uneven shaped teeth needs to be analysed for the correct treatment.

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009
Q.
Between the ages of 17 – 19 I had traditional braces. I am now 29 and find that my teeth have relapsed over time as my dentist warned they might. I wear a nightly retainer (which is a replacement if one I had and broke) but my teeth aren’t as they were when I first had my brace removed. The main issues are: a small ‘Madonnaesque’ gap between my front two teeth and the teeth wither side of those are rather short. I was wondering between veneers, invisalign and lumineers what I could consider to correct the problem. I want something that will completely close the gap without too much damage to my teeth which are white and in very good condition.

Need to fix my bite and get gum graft, please suggest.

Monday, December 7th, 2009
Q.
I am nearly coming to the end of invisalign treatment and have found that my top front teeth have gone forward and caused me to have a bit of an overbite. Also my lower left canine gum has receded, which must be due to brushing too hard as I don’t have gum disease. Will invisalign refinements be able to push my front teeth back a bit? or is there any other treatment that can fix my bite? Where can I go to get a gum graft, as it is causing me a lot of anguish.

Can Invisalign fix my underbite as I have edge to edge bite?

Monday, December 7th, 2009
Q.
Hi, im a 21 yr old male that had braces to fix a slight underbite when i was 14-16, for 2 years after i had my braces off i started noticing my perfect bite was becoming more uncomfortable. As of now, im 21 and have an edge to edge bite, my mandible grew, but i dont have an underbite yet, just edge to edge which is very uncomfortable. Im assuming i will have to go back to braces and elastics again, but i was wondering if invisalign will work for my situation? Can I use elastics with invisalign, I read online that invisalign can fix underbites?

Should I consider implants over braces I have time issues?

Monday, December 7th, 2009
Q.
One of my front teeth is not aligned with the others because it was taken out a little bit late in my childhood years while removing the milk teeth. Now am 28 and I would like it aligned with the other teeth. Braces take a long time to realign teeth, thats why I wanted to choose a dental implant. What is the process of getting a dental implant and its advantages or disavantages over the other methods.
