I want to get clear, removable braces after previous orthodontic treatment. Can you advise?

January 3rd, 2013
Q.

hi i had braces when i was 14 15 for over a year and all i ever wanted was straight teeth once they took them off i wasnt completely happy they didnt seem as straight as i thought they would be. Then i wasnt given retainers for a while so my teeth already started to move i had my retainers late and then eventually they were getting slits in them where the plastic was so soft at the very front on the top retainer, a dental nurse cut the front down so small that eventually it just ripped. I was measure up for another reatainer and when it came it did not fit my teeth i could feel it didnt and the nurse was trying to ram it on and it was just not the right shape at all i had another one and i knew it still didnt fit properly at the back so i went back and the nurse shouted at me saying i hadnt wore it at all but it just wasnt true because all i wanted was perfect teeth, then it got to the point where i was going back and they said i didnt need retainers anymore and now my teeth have moved outwards very badly the four front teeth, I am 18 and still would do anything for straight teeth i am a student and want to know if there would be any costs involved and if so how much roughly for me to have hidden or clear removable braces to straight up the front teeth?

Should there still be signs of a lisp when I wear my Inman Aligner?

December 10th, 2012
Q.

Hello. I know that you’re supposed to have some speech problems at the start of getting braces put on but i have a constant lisp with the inman aligner in place. i feel like it’s getting worse gradually and its really affecting my confidence not so good. will it go away soon or how long even? i don’t want to be stuck with it! i don’t know what i should do as my orthodontist keeps saying it always happens in all cases but then for this long a time? i don’t think so! thanks.

I don’t want a bonded retainer after my braces treatment is complete. What can I do?

December 6th, 2012
Q.

I have been advised that I have to receive a bonded retainer after my brace treatment is completed. I don’t want a bonded retainer at all! Why would I require one of these things? I know I have to have a retainer but I don’t want a permanent one stuck to my teeth! Wouldn’t it just get in the way? I don’t want to struggle with eating/talking for the rest of my life with this thing in my mouth! What should I say to my dentist? He is adamant that I have have the bonded retainer. Thanks

Will chipped tooth prevent me from getting braces?

December 6th, 2012
Q.

Hello I was just wondering if you would be able to give me your professional opinion to help me? i’m due to go ahead with receiving invisalign braces, i’ve had all the measurements taken etc but i chipped my tooth at the weekend and i have to see my dentist this week, will this stop me receiving the braces? will i have to have the tooth fixed up first before i can start with my brace treatment? i’m really worried!

My teeth have shifted after braces treatment years ago. Can Lingual Braces fix this?

November 29th, 2012
Q.

Hello i had the awful train track braces when i was much younger (around 15 years ago) and my teeth were straightened out in a painful yet necessary process but they’re falling back into place and shifting again which is a nightmare for me now. i wasn’t as good with my retainer as i should have been so i think this is the reason for my teeth movement. i’m looking for a fix and feel i may be suitable for linguals..my question is: do you often use this type of brace to fix shifting teeth that were previously treated with a fixed brace? thank you, best,

I’m unsure if my braces are still working as I can’t feel much forces. Can you advise?

November 29th, 2012
Q.

I have been wearing my braces for about 5 months now and am a little worried that it isn’t as effective as it once was. It feels a great deal looser and my teeth don’t seem to be moving as much as they once were. Is this just the way the braces works or should it be something for me to worry about? I am due to go back and see my dentist in about a month, but do you think it would be better if I did it now instead? I really want to get the best out of my brace, and it would seem a waste of time and money if I left things now. Do you think I will have to have a new brace at all? Thanks

What is the best brace to improve my chances of getting an acting role?

November 26th, 2012
Q.

Hello and please advise. I’m studying to become a trained actor and i’ve been advised by my agent to enquire about braces because my top set of teeth are very spaced and one of my canines protrude quite a bit. He thinks that if i have dental braces it’ll improve my chances of doing well in auditions/receiving more auditions etc. as you would expect really. I need something quick and discreet and something that does not affect my speech in ANY way, any recommendations? thanks!

Can you get dental braces if you have a few missing teeth?

November 26th, 2012
Q.

Hi can you tell me which would be the best brace for me in my specific situation? i have an overbite (it isn’t that bad however) and i also have two missing teeth at the back of my mouth(at the bottom) and one back tooth missing at the top to round off the problems. I just want a general idea from a dental professional like yourself, can you still wear braces if you have a few missing teeth? thanks!
