I want fixed braces but am worried than my diabetes will affect my treatment.

December 9th, 2011

hello Mr Hutchinson, I am in a bit of bother over getting braces. I have decided to not go with the Inman or Invisalign or anything I think full fixed braces- though disgusting will work better , all the time and I have seen first hand people who have had them and the results they have obtained with them. the only issue i have is that i have had for as long as i can remember type 2 diabetes. I haven’t got gum disease and all my teeth are in rude health, I have had an oral cancer screening to make sure I didn’t have that (leaving no stone unturned) as I know that your mouth has to be in the best condition it can be in before having a brace. I just wanted to know if diabetes could affect the chances of me getting a brace- and whether or not there is anything I should know if not. what are your thoughts? thanks for this

Can AcceleDent be used in conjunction with an existing brace system or would you be required to start again?

November 1st, 2011

Hello I have heard about Acceldent and wanted to know if it was to be used in conjunction with braces and what types if so as i presume it doesnt fit all types? I thought this may present issues if it went say with a traditional braces as the vibrateing and accelerated movement wuold loosen wires quick having an almost negative effect on the brace? if this is the case then does it mean the patient has to then visit the dentist more in order to have the brace altered .
also If I want this treatment for example would I have to start treatment again or would I be able to intergrate it with my current fixed device and system?
