My lower jaw is further forward than my top jaw. Is there a way to change this and can I get it on the NHS?

May 18th, 2012
Q.

Hello Mr Maini, I’m 20 years old and have been very concious of my appearance since before I can remember. My lower jaw is further forward than my top jaw. This makes my mouth slightly open constantly. I have to physically think about shutting it all the time. I never wanted any operations doing when I was younger because I was always too scared. I was thinking there could be a way with some kind of brace? I read that those big cages on peoples heads sometimes are used for cases like mine, is this true? What kind of time scale do procedures like this take? Do you have to wear them all day or can i just wear them at night? Can i get this done on the NHS? Just really wanted some information about it before i go to the dentist. cheers

I know I have to pay for treatment but can I have alternative orthodontic systems at an NHS dentist?

April 11th, 2012
Q.

hello I was wondering what treatments you can receive on the NHS. I have been told you stop receiving the right to have braces for free on the NHS when your 16 but does that mean only fixed braces? I am looking to get braces and upon learning that I would not be able to have them on the NHS (at which point I was willing to have traditional train tracks) I decided to look at what braces are available to align crooked teeth. turns out theres a few and thats why sites like this are up no doubt. If I were to go to a NHS dentist- whetherI haed to pay or not, would I be able to receive any alternative treatments or do they only do traintracks? if so I will go private as to get what I want if im paying for It, and secondly whilst im here are there any benefits of having it done on the NHS or are there advantages of going pivate that outweigh those of the NHS treatment? thanks for any response.

I like the look of six month smiles, are they actually that good?

April 11th, 2012
Q.

Hello Anoop. I have looked at various methods and brace types in terms of orthodontics now for some time and have pondered and dilly dallied all the time also! I am now trying to get to get together a plan of action so I can get this done. I have looked at invisible braces as a nice aesthetic option when I stumbled upon the six month smiles. what I wanted to know was whether or not they are a great option? by this I was wondering that as they fix teeth in six months then why isn’t everyone who has braces not having this treatment. would you consider it a goo treatment worth having?

What brace should I have if I have my lingual brace removed?

March 30th, 2012
Q.

mr annop Maini. Could you please help me with my brace issue. I have a lingual brace fitted and i dont like the feel of it on the back of my teeth as i thought i would. I have long wanted to have a nicer feeling brace now so I was wondering what would be the best option to move to if I had these braces removed. cost is not an issuefor now. If I had a brace on the front or a removable one which would you recommend and why, considering my teeth are slightly overlapped and im two months into this treatment on an eighteen month plan. thanks a lot

What types of braces are used for six month smiles and social six treatments?

March 30th, 2012
Q.

To Mr Anoop Maini, I have long wondered about six month smiles and social six type treatments. basically as to what appliances they use and why. For example, looking at the six month smile would it not be possible to have this with one of those lingual braces so the treatment is fast and invisible or does the brace HAVE to be on the front of the teeth. also the same can be said of the social six, does the brace have to be like it is or can you not have incognito fittings on it? thank you I know this is two questions but thanks again.

Does teeth whitening come included in the price of getting a brace or not?

February 24th, 2012
Q.

MR Maini. I am looking to get orthodontic treatment at some point in the next few months and will need a consultation with a specialist at some point I know. I was thinking that if i have the traditional braces i will need some form of tooth whitening after the treatment had finished but if i have six month smiles or a damon brace that are considerably quicker would i still need this kind of treatment? if i do have to have this treatment would i have to pay extra or would it be included in the initial price? I anticipate your response Dr thank you

Will six month smile be able to fix flared teeth?

February 24th, 2012
Q.

Hello Anoop,

I have noticed the website picture of the lady you treated had slightly flared teeth, which you successfully corrected.
Did the lady have flared teeth?
My first six upper and lower incisors are flared, due to a tongue thrusting habit I had as a child. I do not want to have tooth extractions.
Would the six month smile be effective in treating me? I was really impressed with how the treatment that was carried out worked so well. How much does the treatment cost?

Regards,
Natalie

Should I have Six month smiles or Invisalign to fix my crooked teeth?

February 17th, 2012
Q.

Hi Anoop. I had braces just over a year ago but had them removed just over a year into my treatment because they had clearly made no effect on my teeth what so ever. I know this because the impressions on my old gum shield were exactly the same as those made in putty after this duration of time of treatment. I was really miffed off considering my teeth were only crossed- and not to the greatest extent I might add. I was wondering if i would be a good candidate for Invisalign or six month smiles with mildly crossed teeth? or will my previous treatment have jeopardised this? thanks

Is it possible to have a brace without the need for tooth extraction?

February 17th, 2012
Q.

Hi I have long considered braces as my teeth have overlapped, I am currently 24 and as such I belive I have stopped growing and I dont intend on putting masses of weight on so my teeth should stay pretty much where they are now. I have been looking at the procedure involved when having braces and I am not overly keen on having a tooth out. Im no dentist but after looking at the size and distance of/between teeth I dont think I need it. I’m sure there is a name for this procedure. could you recall it for me if I am right, If not could you please advise me, thanks a lot, it’s appreciated.

I want to straighten my severely crossed lower teeth but I have a chipped tooth, what do I do first?

February 2nd, 2012
Q.

Hi Anoop maini. all my lower teeth have crowded severely. I chipped one recently and was hoping to have a veneer placed on it or some bonding. I decided to wait and find out if this should be done before or after. What I want to know though is if I can any treatment to fix the chipped tooth temporarily whilst wearing braces. I had planned on getting Damon braces as they are fast and fairly discreet unless there is a better option if this makes a difference at all. thanks for your time Dr.
