Can You Get Damon Lingual Braces?

September 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Qureshi. I really want braces to fix my crooked teeth, but am struggling to decide which ones to go for! I’ve made a list of my favourites and do intend to visit a dentist for a consultation to find out which kind of brace really would be best for me but I’d just like to get some information from you first. I really like the look of Damon braces, and have heard good things about them. Ideally I’d like my braces to be as discreet as possible, would I be able to get Damon ones fitted to the back of my teeth? Or is it only STb and Incognito braces that can go on the back? Please help!

Will Lingual Braces Chip My Dental Crown?

August 28th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hutchinson. I have a porcelain crown on one of my top teeth as the result of an accident I had 3 months ago. My teeth have always been a bit crooked, especially my bottom ones, and I’m looking into lingual braces as a solution. I’m worried that the brace will damage my crown, will this happen? I haven’t had it more than 2 months. Will the braces chip away at the back of my crown? If this is the case can you suggest a good alternative for me? Thanks.

I Broke My Lingual Braces Through Tooth-Grinding. What Should I Do?

August 7th, 2014
Q.

Hi Saba. I’m currently wearing lingual braces but unfortunately I grind my teeth in the night and have broken the brackets after just 4 weeks! Obviously I haven’t broken them on purpose and I’m scared of what my orthodontist will say. I haven’t told anyone that I grind my teeth because I didn’t want to be told I couldn’t have braces but now it’s obviously a problem because I’ve broken them. What should I do and will I have to pay for new ones?

Which Type of Lingual Brace is Right for Me?

July 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello, I’m looking at braces but don’t know which ones are right for me. I actually didn’t know there were so many different types of lingual brace! Obviously it’s great to have a selection but I’m starting to get confused between all the different kinds. I have two quite big gaps between my teeth and some of the teeth at the front are a bit crooked, but apart from that they’re quite straight – not a complete mess! I want to start saving for braces so I’d just like to know which you think would be best for me?

Will Lingual Braces Close a Gap in my Teeth?

July 4th, 2014
Q.

Hello there Dr Hutchinson. I need your advice. I’m all set to go to uni this year and I have gap between my teeth the size of Jupiter. Would I need lingual braces to stop me looking like a horse? Would I need to see you in person. It might be difficult as I live all the way up in Scotland? I’m still reeling over Andy Murray getting knocked of Wimbledon, but anyway, the gap? I would be extremely disappointed if you didn’t get back to me with an answer straight away!

Are My Lingual Braces Broken?

July 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi there, I’m having a problem with my lingual braces. The brace feels loose at the back of my teeth, and it didn’t before. Does that fact that it’s loose mean that it’s not working? I’ve got an appointment with my orthodontist in 2 weeks anyway for them to be adjusted but I just would like to know in the meantime because I’m worried. They cost a lot of money and I don’t want to have to spend loads more. The wires are loose so it feels like it’s moving in my mouth. Thanks for any help you can give me.

What’s the Best Treatment for Fixing a Gap Between Teeth?

June 5th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Qureshi. I have just turned 22 and recently I’ve noticed that there’s a gap between two of my teeth at the front. Well, I say noticed, it has always been there but it seems to have gotten bigger and I’m not imagining things, my boyfriend has noticed it too. Is there a treatment that will fix the gap? It’s knocked my confidence quite a lot you see. I understand that it won’t close overnight with any brace, but I’d prefer quick treatment, especially if the braces are ugly! Thanks.

Which Brace Would Be Best For An Overlapping Tooth?

May 19th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hutchinson. I have overlapping teeth. One of my front bottom ones overlaps the other one and it’s unsightly. I don’t know which braces to get as it’s only for the one tooth, and I know how expensive brace systems can be. Could you help me determine which would be best? I’d prefer discreet treatment really but ultimately I just want the tooth sorting out as it’s been a problem for me for the last 14 years. Thank you very much.

Which Is Faster: Lingual Braces Or Removable Braces?

May 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hutchinson. Around 5 years ago when I was 15, I had braces fitted because my teeth were very crooked and crossed over each other at the bottom. However when they were taken out, I didn’t wear my retainer as much as I should (I know, my bad!) so now my teeth are a bit of a mess again. I’d love to have straight teeth again, and I want them as soon as possible really. I’ve looked at lots of different kinds of braces, would fixed or removable braces be better for me in terms of treatment time? Thanks!

What’s The Difference Between Lingual Braces And Invisalign?

May 6th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr. Qureshi, I wondered if you could help me. I have had terrible teeth for many years, they are crooked and horrible to look at and have decided to get braces to straighten them out. I’ve been looking at lingual braces and also at Invisalign, what’s the difference? I know a few celebrities have used Invisalign so it intrigued me, however I do like the sound of lingual braces. Which would be best for me? Thank you.
