My braces seem to big and have irritated the inside of my cheeks?

March 16th, 2012
Q.

Hi. Mr Patel I have been recommended to this site by a freind who used it previously and had contacted you- in doing so she had recieved ‘excellent feedback’ -quote. I was wondeing if you could help my situation. I have a full brace/traintracks. I don’t particularly like them of the truth is told but i assumed I wouldn’t so ill deal with it for the final outcome which i hope to be very happy with. the issue im having however cannot be ignored for now. the clasp things that the wires are anchored to seem too big and really irritate the inside of my cheeks, rubbing and the like, the skin there has gone white and has peeled. it does hurt now and agan when it catched but otherwise its just really annoying, is there anything i can do about this? cheers

How long does it take to have braces and is it painful?

March 16th, 2012
Q.

Dear Adam Thorne. I would like to go through all aspects of getting a brace. but I’m not going to as this will consume a large amount of time and is usually left until a face to face appointment. however I would like to know about getting braces and how long it takes to put them on. I have heard that you have to have the brace put on a bit at a time or is this just talk. I had assumed it could just be placed there and then? also id there any pain involved when having the brace put on? I know this is two questions sorry, but thanks for your time :)

What is the quickest and most effective tooth straightening brace for me?

March 16th, 2012
Q.

I am considering having my upper & lower teeth straightened.
My main problem is one of the front lower teeth has over time been forced back, resulting in my bite not lining up correctly, as they have become a bit scattered.
Also a slight gap in my upper front teeth but my main concern is my right canine sticks out a bit from the others and is also slightly higher up in the gum and a yellowy colour, compared with the other teeth.

What type of brace would be the quickest, less visible AND most effective for me?
Please help!

I look forward to your response.

Regards

Would social six treatment be a good option for me?

March 16th, 2012
Q.

Hello Mr Thorne. I would like to know a little more about social six braces please. my lower teeth between my two canines are all squashed together and I think a social six brace would be perfect. I think they are too crooked to be treated using Invisalign? but the rest of the teeth I don’t think will benefit from a full brace. anyway, do you think it is possible for teeth to be too crooked to have the social six or will they fir on anything? also by only moving these teeth are they quicker? thanks

I think I will look a bit daft if I get braces in my thirties. Can you advise?

March 9th, 2012
Q.

Hello Sir,. could you please lay to rest the fears i now have about braces. I have wanted them for a while now but I never wanted the train tracks. As a thirty one year old i feel lI would look a bit daft with them on and I here they take the longest of any treatment. I have been trying to research about things like and Inman Aligner and Invisalign but Have e found a lot of horror stories about both and also stories about how they’ve not worked or lined bottom teeth up with the top etc. what would you say about these types of brace treatment, are they reliable and do they give the correct and desired results? thank you

I have a gap on the lower teeth and crowding on the upper. What should I do?

March 5th, 2012
Q.

Hello Darsh. I am in the unfortunate position of having crossed teeth on the top and a gap onn the bottom. when I was about twelve the dentist extracted a couple of my lowe teeth to make room for growth as they were starting to overcrowd, anyway these have moved apart which I am not happy with, indicating that he clearly didnt need to take out more than one and has created too much room. what Can I do about this as he was not sure about moving top teeth out and lower teeth in at the same time, I wont be having any work carried out there from now on and am looking for treatment that would be suitable for this situation? thanks a lot Dr

I’m 17 and want braces but my dentist has said no. Will I have to pay?

March 5th, 2012
Q.

Hello Ms Sepehrara I would like to know about braces and whether I have to pay for them. My dentist says that i don’t need braces but i really really want them to close up my gap teeth and tiny gaps in between my teeth also to straighten out a few teeth. i do have overbitte but not alot only about a couple of millimetres my dentist said. all this really makes me unconfident and i was wondering if id be able to get braces for free because i am nearly 17 years old or would i have to pay? Thank you

My wife needs help with her braces when briefly returning from India. Can you help?

March 5th, 2012
Q.

Hi,
My wife’s jaw and teeth need to be straightened.
They are a bit pushed forward.
She is in India now. She cotacted her dentist there and he can fix it using either American technique or English technique.
But, it is a year process. She will be travelling to the UK next month.
So, she cannot continue her treatment in India.
The doctor in India will put the applicances for straightening the teeth (may be American technique) and she needs the help of a doctor to check it every month.
Is it something you can help?
Regards
