Should I replace my Maryland bridge with implants?

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011
Q.

I am 34 years old and had maryland bridges fitted when I was 15 to replace the two teeth either side of my front teeth (thatnever appeared after my baby teeth fell out).

They are still there and have been very strong and good, but the metal is starting to show through and I have noticeable gaps around them now as my mouth has changed shape as I have got older and am increasingly self conscious of them.

Please can you advise my best options, should I replace them with maryland brisges again (or do they still have the metal bonds that would show through) or implants?

Also, my front teeth are crossed and I am keen to get them straightened. Please can you let me know if I can have a brace with bridges or if veneers would be more appropriate.

I’m not sure what to do about my inwards-facing two front teeth, what is best?

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011
Q.

I have always had perfect teeth. Never needed braces. I’m 42 & last year, I began noticing my 2 front teeth starting to turn inward causing a shadow or “split” tooth look in pictures & somewhat of a “beaver” look where the outter sides slightly protrude.
All that bothers me is cosmetic appearance. The dentist said to bond, the oroth said trad. braces because Invisaline leaves gaps. Then there are veeners?!
IF I get the bonding can it be removed if my teeth continue to turn & eventually I have to get braces? The ortho sounded like MOST of my forward crowding was done?! Help!

My daughter still has some milk teeth, can she have them extracted?

Monday, February 21st, 2011
Q.

My daughter (12 nearly 13yrs). The upper, right side, canine 3, baby tooth has not come out. Firmly it sits fixed within the mouth. The second tooth which should have pushed down onto this baby tooth to remove it, has grown horizontally across, instead of down. It know pushes towards the front two teeth of the mouth and has caused the closest one to move and go squinty bending out and in to where the baby tooth sits. All the teeth are fully grown were perfect second teeth until this happened. Please advise ! I has asked for this baby tooth to be removed over a year ago (gut feeling about it) Had this have happened, would this problem of still occured? Thank you

My teeth are overcrowded due to bad dental work. What should I do?

Friday, February 18th, 2011
Q.

Hi Mark,
I am 32 years old andthe dentist I used when I was 13 took the wrong teeth out, I did query this but was advised that when my wisdom teeth grew they would push my bottom teeth forward, this was incorrect.
I now have overcrowded top teeth where a tooth on witherside overlaps my front two teeth and have gaps at the bottom of my mouth, i estimate that a pound coin would easily fit in the gap.
To add to that my bottom teeth front teeth are discolouring with dark brown appearing at the root area.
I have been scared off of dentists for fear of further errors. please can you help ?
Many Thanks
Sarah

Can you recommend treatment to straighten crooked teeth?

Friday, February 18th, 2011
Q.

Hi, I was never referred to an orthodontist as a kid although my teeth were crooked. I’d had teeth out to make room for another one to grow down but it never has and sticks out into my lip. The older iv got the worse my confidence has become. I am now 20years old and I hate smiling infront of people and avoid meeting new people and feel I my smile let’s me down. Iv been looking at lingual braces but have found they are to expensive. Do you think I would be able to have them or have something done on the nhs? And do you think braces are the best option for me?.
