I’m not keen on braces so what options are available to correct my tooth that isn’t straight?

August 30th, 2012
Q.

My front tooth is angulated to approx 30 degrees. I would like to consider what options are available to correct this and how do i get this corrected in the quickest way? (and at what cost?) not keen on braces. In addition, i would like my teeth to be whitened after this problem is corrected. what options are also available for this?
I would be most grateful if you could help with this.
Thanks.

My top wisdom teeth are pointing outwards, they are not causing any pain but they just rub against my cheek, what should i do?

August 30th, 2012
Q.

Alright Darsh, My top two wisdom teeth are almost completely through, they are pointing outwards, towards my cheeks. They are not causing me any pain or discomfort but i wanted to see if there are any braces available to straighten wisdom teeth. I thought because they are far back in my mouth, a plate would not be possible as it might be quite uncomfortable? As i said it doesn’t hurt but it’s just a little annoying them pointing outwards and rubbing on my cheek. I would look into having them taken out, but is this not quite major dental work? I’d obviously prefer to just have some kind of brace. Thanks for your help!

With Damon Braces do i need to change my diet to stop it staining the brace?

August 30th, 2012
Q.

I’ve had Damon braces on for around 2 weeks, I was thinking about if my diet had to change? I know there are certain foods i shouldn’t eat like chewing gum and sweets, but are there any foods that help keep my teeth clean or strengthen them? Is it possible that the Damon braces change colour with the diet or drinks that i have? I do drink a fair amount of coffee will this have an effect, like it does on teeth. I didn’t know if the material that the braces were made out of would be able not to get stained, or if they do can you get the plates changed? So yeah what’s a good diet to have when you’ve got braces on basically? Thanks Darsh!!!

Is it okay to have my teeth whitened while having invisalign treatment?

August 17th, 2012
Q.

Hi Anoop, I’m just in the middle of my invisalign treatment on plate #6 it’s going really well, i like how loads of people don’t even know i have it! I was just wanting to know if its a good idea or not to while i’m still wearing the plates to whiten my teeth with self whitening? Or get it done at a dentists but that just costs a lot more! I also wanted to know what do dentists feel about home tooth whitening kits, i’ve heard mixed things really, that your teeth get really sensitive and sore? Does this still happen when you have it done at a dentists? If i could have your advice that would be great! I don’t want to do something that will damage my teeth! Thanks Annop!

My son is 12, his adult teeth have come through crooked, would you recommend Lingual braces?

August 10th, 2012
Q.

Hi there

do you recommend lingual braces for younger patients? My son is 12 and his adult teeth have come through pretty crooked and he feels self conscious as it is. Im not sure if the invisible braces look advanced enough to straighten his teeth out, so if he has lingual braces it would combine the two best aspects of the two different braces and he wouldn’t feel awkward.

I just worry that because his teeth have only just come through that he won’t be suitable for the braces/

what do you think doctor?

thank you

I had a wire glued to the back of my teeth but now my teeth have started moving again, what should i do?

August 10th, 2012
Q.

Hey Raha, Got a bit of an issue going on! I had a brace about 6 or 7 years ago, and when i got it off the dentist asked me if i wanted a removal retainer or a wire glued to the back of my bottom teeth to stop them from moving. The thing is they have started moving so this wire is now useless! What are my options, because obviously a wire is not working anymore so will i have get something else like a retainer to stop them from moving? if so how much does something like that cost? I should have got this information sooner but its just been so hectic i didnt get round to it and also i hate going to the dentist unless absolutly necessary! But now i think it is!! Some advice would be great! Thanks!

My top and bottom teeth are very different, is it possible to get two different types of brace at the same time?

July 16th, 2012
Q.

Hey Adam!!! Just have a little question really about lingual braces. My top and bottom teeth are very different, with the bottom set they are quite squashed together and crowded, however the top set are quite straight but just have gaps in them! Is it possible to get two different types of braces at the same time? Because i think lingual braces would work on the bottom however maybe invisalign or Damon braces may be better for the top? Would these have to be done separately or could lingual braces be fitted to my top teeth even though they are quite spaced out? It might look a bit strange that actually! you know better than me! Whats your suggestion? Thanks!

I’m interested in either Damon, Invisalign and clearstep, I want it to be quick and discreet, which would you recommend?

July 16th, 2012
Q.

Hey Dr Maini, I have been researching for 6 months now the best brace for me. I had a consultation with my NHS dentist before this time and they said my teeth would be fine for most current orthodontic treatments – the three i am interested in is – Damon, Invisalign and Clearstep. Firstly could you clarify the differences between Invisalign and Clearstep, if there is a difference? Which would you recommend. I want it to be discreet that’s why i have chose these three. But i don’t want to be stuck with them for a long time? Therefore if the damon braces are faster i will put up with the tracks on my teeth rather than the clear retainers on Invisalign? Is there a price difference at your clinic between clearstep and Invisalign?
