Can I Use the Inman Aligner to Straighten my Upper Six Front Teeth?

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015
Q.

Good day, I hope you are well. Could you tell me please if I can use an Inman Aligner method to straighten my upper six front teeth? Also, is it important to treat bad teeth before using this method? My problem is that I have quite few broken teeth and my upper front teeth are not straight. I would be really helpful if you could provide me with all necessary information

Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Can Braces Be Used To Push The Teeth In All Different Directions? How Quickly Can They Do This?

Monday, June 16th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I would like to know if arch-wires on braces can push teeth in any direction? Like if the arch-wire pushed the teeth out too much would it then be able to move them back in again? My teeth stick out quite a lot and I’m thinking about wearing braces. Does it take a considerable amount of time to straighten teeth that stick out? Do the different types of braces work differently? I really need help with this as my teeth need sorting out. Thank you for your time.

I Have An Overbite And My Teeth Overlap. I Want Straighter Teeth Without Looking Like A 12 Year Old. What Can I Do?

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi there, I am 19 years old and I was wondering if there is anything I can do to get straighter teeth?
I have an over-bite and my front teeth over lap each other. I would like to avoid braces at all costs, Mostly because I’ve heard that they take like 4 years to straighten? Is there anyway I can do this without braces? I don’t want to look like a 12 year old. Please let me know if there is any other options? I am desperate! Thank you for your time.

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.

Could You Tell Me If It Would Be Possible To Use Lumineers To Correct My Two Front Teeth?

Friday, February 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. Could you tell me if it would it be possible to use Lumineers to correct my two front teeth?

They are set back further than the rest and also sit a little lower. Ideally I would like my two front teeth to be sitting a little higher up the gum and set forward with the other teeth.

At the side of the two front teeth, I have little ‘fangs’ which are slightly turning into the direction of the two front teeth. I would also like to have these fixed.

Braces aren’t an option for me due to the nature of my work, I am also not a candidate for Invisalign. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.

How Much Will My Partial Denture Affect The Look Of My Face?

Friday, February 7th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark, I’d like your advice. I’m having 4 top teeth removed for partial denture. They stick out to a V shape at the front. Now there isn’t much space so the front teeth will be made narrower to fit the gap, will this look normal? My top lip is full, so will bringing the teeth back straight make my lip really thin?
My chin sticks out a bit an I’d like to know if this will this make it stick out more? I am desperate to alter my sticky out teeth and have a better smile. At the moment the 4 front teeth stick out so much they rest on my bottom lip. Thanks.

My Daughter’s Teeth Are Growing In Crooked And I’m Worried That She Will Be Teased. Is There Anything You Can Do?

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014
Q.

My daughter is nearly 8 and I have noticed that her two top front teeth (they are her second teeth) are growing at strange angles and behind her two bottom teeth is another tooth growing behind. I’m really worried, at our last check up a few months ago the dentist told me not to worry but to be honest I can’t help but worry, although things can be done when she is older. I don’t want her or any of her friends to notice anything because she already suffers from being far too shy or too different. Could you suggest anything?

Can I Still Have Invisalign Treatment With A Few Missing Teeth?

Monday, January 13th, 2014
Q.

Hello,
I am a 28 year old male who is looking to straighten his teeth without unsightly braces. I am looking to have Invisalign work done. However, I do have two teeth missing on the upper jaw, is it possible to still have Invisalign?

Also, as it is quite expensive, what payment plans are offered for this kind of treatment?
This is a problem that I have had for some time. I hope you can answer my question as I’d love to have a straighter smile. Kind regards.

I’ve Spent A Lot Of Money On Braces But Feel That They Haven’t Worked. Is There Any Other Way My Teeth Can Be Straightened?

Thursday, January 9th, 2014
Q.

I had braces which my dentist removed one and a half year back. I didn’t wear the retainers as it hurt a lot. She completed my treatment without removing any of my teeth. After finishing my treatment I still felt that my upper teeth were still in front and my friends felt that too. What should I do to get my teeth straight? I don’t want braces again. Is there any other option which would have a reasonable cost since I have spent more than 40k on my treatment already?

I Am Confused Whether To Have Invisalign Or Six Month Smiles Treatment To Sort Out My Overcrowded Teeth?

Monday, January 6th, 2014
Q.

I would like to push back my upper front teeth and to straighten them too so there’s no overcrowding. I would also like to straighten my lower teeth which are crowded and one tooth protrudes outwards significantly. I have seen an orthodontist and cosmetic dentist but I’m totally confused whether to go with an orthodontist or a cosmetic dentist. One recommended Invisalign the other Six month smiles. One also said they couldn’t push my lower tooth back in line totally due to lack of space. Is there anything that can be done to create more space for a perfect outcome? Thank you.
