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

Why would my teeth begin to crowd at the ago of 39?

February 17th, 2012
Q.

Hi there
My bottom set of teeth have been crowding for the past two years (Im 39 years old) it got so bad that I bit the front off my lower front tooth and thought it wise to have it removed to free some space – as the pressure felt too much (it could not be crowned). Why would they start crowding so badly? I did have my wisdom teeth removed as they were sideways on and never going to appear. Could a remnant of tooth be left in the gum that has decided to travel – it appears only on one side. I truly believe the gap will close because of the pressure I have been experiencing. I really need to see an orthodontist. Would you have an x-ray on the back teeth?

Should I have braces now as a student or later?

February 17th, 2012
Q.

Hello. Dear Adam, Braces are something I have contemplated for while now. I’m not sure as Im 20 already and don’t know when the idea time to get them would be. I dont particularly want them until I have finished University, but then I dont want them whilst Im going for job interviews…etc.
If for example I do have them now and the treatment time is approximately 18 months or so.. If I leave it and have them done in two years will the treatment time have gotten longer as I assume my teeth will be more crossed than they already are, or is this just not the case? Thank you Mr Thorne I appreciate your time.

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

My arches won’t line up as a result of thumb sucking as a child. Would orthodontics provide a solution?

February 17th, 2012
Q.

Hi Mr Patel,
I was just wondering if you can give me rough idea what treatment you think i would need. I have an overbite due to sucking my thumb when i was young and i my top & bottom arches do not match up, i know you wont know 100% what treatment till you see me but if you could just give me a rough idea. I have seen another dentist and paid quite a bit just for a consultation & was not happy with what they told me as i believe they were just trying to get as much money as they could out of me. I do have all the details they wrote about my teeth if that would help. I am hoping i can have braces that can be put behind the teeth, do you do that?
Also do you charge for consultations? If so how much?
Hope to hear from you soon

I have a split in my gum. Would this pose a problem to fast acting orthodontics?

February 17th, 2012
Q.

I have a split in my gum. It’s been there whil and I’ve had it checked out. the dentist says is now OK despite the fact you can still see it. I also have really crooked teeth and had hoped to have braces. I’m not a fan of traditional braces and had planned on having a more cosmetically pleasing option. I have my worries though, hence coming looking for advice, about this crack. If I have something like a Damon that works quickly would it cause damage to this crack in my gum? thank you

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.

Brace options and crowns in mouth overhaul before son’s wedding

February 17th, 2012
Q.

Hello Darsh. I have been investigating into different methods of orthodontics available to me. I will be attending my sons wedding in just under a year. after recently fixing problems between us I have now vowed to turn myself around for him, how embarassing would it be for his dad to look a scruff at his wedding “who’s that?…” “…my dad!” no. I’ve recently had surgery myself so i was wondering what would be the best- and for me that’s the least invasive treatment for overlapped teeth. they are not that over lapped but due the colour they were they looked horrible. I have had extensive cleaning done at the dentists and my teeth whitened a shade (I didnt spend to much time on this as I’d have to do it again after a brace, it just helps in a meantime i guess). I also need a crown but don’t know whether to do this after or before. I’m so nearly there. I’ll just need a hair cut and a shave nearer the time and he’ll be proud!!! thanks for your help.

I have lost my retainers. How much would it cost for new ones?

February 17th, 2012
Q.

hi darsh,
i have had braces in the past for just over 2 years, and then i was given retainers to wear at night but i had lost them and now i am 19, i just wanted to know what would the cost be? as my front teeth have a gap of lets say less than 1mm really small gap but still noticeable. any way i can get help with the payment through some procedure as i am a student and was wondering if i should go for retainers or fixed braces all over again?
