Is Filing My Teeth Down The Way To Get Rid Of My Overbite?

April 15th, 2013
Q.

I have a over bite really bad my two front teeth are long there not crooked or anything kinda look like rabbit teeth and I was wondering how I would get it fixed? if braces would help? or if there was such a thing where they could shave them down? everytime I try to open my mouth all the way my jaw will pop before I can open it what could that be? I think they called it TMJ I don’t know if that could have something to do with me having an over bite or not.

Which Specific Lingual Braces Would Be Best For Me?

March 25th, 2013
Q.

Hi there. Okay so after having looked myself I have started to get a  bit of a headache because there are so many different types of lingual braces on here and I’m finding it hard to distinguish them all from each other. Could you briefly tell me which would be best for me? I have two missing back teeth and my two front teeth are slightly twisted…other than that my teeth are all relatively straight. I’d like a general idea from a professional so that I can get a good start on saving the money. Thanks ever so much.

Can I get treatment to correct the gaps between my teeth?

March 19th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I am having gaps between the teeth and I would like to know which treatment will be the best to correct this. Though I had put braces at the age of 16, I failed to put the retainers properly which caused the gaps. I am a 31 year old female, is it possible to correct the gaps now ? Also I would like to know how much it will cost me and how long it will take? Also for the last 1 month I am having a blister in the gum just above the teeth. As advised by my GP I started using mouthwash and taking vitamin C tablets as well. This hasnt done any better. What could be the reason for this blister ?Please advice

Would lingual braces work to fix a protruding bottom jaw?

March 13th, 2013
Q.

Would you recommend lingual braces for someone who has a protruding bottom jaw? Mine really, really sticks out and just makes me so uncomfortable and awkward in public. It also stops me from eating or speaking properly and I just feel that enough is enough and it’s time to get treatment! Do you think the lingual braceis a good choice for me and if not could you recommend other treatment for me? Any help you can give would be brilliant and i very much appreciate it thank you for your time and help

I had braces when I was a teenager but now have a clicking jaw. What can I do?

March 13th, 2013
Q.

I had braces when I was a teenager but unfortunately my teeth have moved. Although I stopped wearing my retainer my dentist says that my teeth also moved as I now have ‘clicking jaw’ which I did not have before my braces when I was a teenager. He says this was probably as a result of my orthodontic treatment? I was wondering how this could be treated and also I feel that my teeth that sit right next to my two front teeth are too short? Can this be fixed with cosmetic dentistry or would I need orthodontic work?

Braces are to be removed but dentist has left my lateral incisor teeth with space either side. What happens next?

March 13th, 2013
Q.

Hello. I am nineteen and I am having my orthodontic braces removed next month finally. My teeth are straight now and my compacted canine teeth have been corrected. My lateral incisor teeth are very narrow and the orthodontist has left them with space either side and advised me to return to my dentist to get the spaces filled to widen the teeth and improve my smile rather than tighten the brace further and fill in spaces. I was wondering how much a procedure like this would cost? And also if it would be more beneficial to wear braces longer to fix the spaces rather than fill them in? Thank you

I had braces 3 years ago but a gap has suddenly appeared between my lateral and central incisors. What should I do?

March 6th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I had braces for about 3 years and got them removed early. I wear my retainers 24/7 now that I have some that fit okay. A few months later I started flossing daily and noticed that a tiny gap appeared in between my lateral and central incisors on both sides on the top teeth. I am quiet elf conscious about it as I had braces for 3 years and expected near perfect teeth. Will a fixed retainer, some wires or something else be required to fix these tiny gaps? I really hope nothing big has to happen because they are only tiny (not really noticeable) But still make me feel self conscious. Thank you.

How much would a front braces cost to fix my gapped teeth?

February 27th, 2013
Q.

Hello. I have a question about a front brace ? What would be the average price for it ? Hi I just thought I would ask these questions as my two front teeth aren’t together completely as my left tooth is forward more than the rest of my teeth so this makes it looks very unappealing to smile with it and i’m mocked for it and i’m now over eighteen so i don’t know how much it would cost in terms of dentist prices for a front brace Thank you for your time if you have a chance to read this as i would love some help .. Thank you.
