What should I expect from an orthodontic consultation?

December 16th, 2011
Q.

Hello RAha. I like a lot of people have decided I have to have braces, so i assume thats the first step. the realisation. now however I need to decide what braces I am going to need. I know at some stage I will need an appointment and have a dentist look at my situation. could i ask though what will happen in these consultations what, If I came to your dental suit for example would you be thinking and checking for when determining whether a patient will be able to have, lets say a Damon brace as I am keen on these systems? I will do anything to not have a fixed traditional brace so any help would be greatley appreciated. thank you

How much does gum grafting cost?

December 16th, 2011
Q.

Hi Doctor! I am currently in the process of straightening my teeth with orthodontic braces. I am 25 years old and my problems started when my dentist established that I clench my teeth when I sleep. I am have a malocclusion which the braces are sorting out well. I have four teeth which have receeded and I’m worried about them. Would you be able to let me know how much it would cost in the uk to have a gum graft completed?. Does the cost include just one tooth or would they work per site. I would need at least four gum grafts, and just wanted to know a realistic quote. Also would you be able to recommend any one for such a procedure. I am just worried that I have spend a substantial amount of money to have the brace and would like the receeding gums to be treated. Would it be best to have the gum graft once the brace comes off? Kindest regards

Would braces help with front tooth at top of mouth that is sticking out?

December 16th, 2011
Q.

Hello, i am wondering if it is possible to get a brace or something that i could have put in to help my tooth at the front of my mouth, the two front teeth at the top of my mouth one of them is slightly sticking out and it really gets me down, if this is possible and if so how much would it roughly be? And is this something i would be able to get through the NHS or would i have to go privately? If i do go privately is it metal braces my choice? what kind of difference is there between the two other than cost?

What is the cost of invisible braces?

December 14th, 2011
Q.

I am a 35years old mother of 3 and I am currently in Nigeria but will be back in the Uk soon. My teeth is similar to the picture 7 of your gallery. What type of braces did you use and the cost? I am very worried because I can’t smile and it has given me a huge inferiority complex. I have seen other dentists here but I am not confident that they will do a good job. Please advice me on the braces, is invisalign or the hidden braces. Thanks fro your help as I await your reply. Thanks!

How safe is it having orthodontics abroad?

December 14th, 2011
Q.

I have been thinking about getting braces but cannot afford the lingual ones I want in the UK. What is the status on having orthodontics abroad now because I figure a lot of dentist go abroad to train and join groups etc. yet you so often hear horror stories about receiving treatment abroad. is it simply that people sill dont trust foreign clinics or is there a genuine concern with going abroad. if you can save money in the process then how can it be a bad thing? Im not saying this is what im doing and not listening to anything else, im trying to find out what’s best and consulting people in the know like yourself. what would you recommend on the subject?

Does my son actually need his teeth removing to have a brace?

December 14th, 2011
Q.

My son who is now15 years old has protruding teeth and difficulty in closing the mouth perfectly because of this ,The local doctor advised him to go for orthodontic treatment seeing his case . After making the mold and photos he advised to extract 2 premolars each from upper and lower jaw . Was x ray not needed to confirm , which teeth is to be removed or it can be decided just from the mold and photographs ?

What kind of treatment should I expect for overlapping teeth?

December 12th, 2011
Q.

Hi Ian I thought Id ask you this as you are a specialist. I need braces and am not bothered which set I end up with really although if its possible I would like to avoid train track braces (if not I’m not bothered but it would be nice to do so). the problem I have is tha my lower teeth are much more overlapped than my upper teeth which are only mildly crossed, the thing is if i leave them longer the top teeth will just become more overlapped so I decided to take action quickly. what I want to know is whether the fact that the to arches are clearly at varying degrees of overlapping would be a problem. will i end up with the top brace being taken off and keeping the botom one on for longer or what? cheers Dr

How do Lingual braces actually work?

December 12th, 2011
Q.

Can you tell me how the lingual braces are actually attached to the teeth and if you wouldn’t mind I would like some detail on this. This is the part of the treatment that really scares me. I don’t mind the thought of wearing braces for a long time as long as I’m getting what I pay for but I’m not all that comfortable with hands routing around my mouth and all the wires and any pain. Please tell me if till be all good!

I have had a bad experience with metal braces, but I now need braces again, so I have other options?

December 9th, 2011
Q.

I have already had a nasty scrap with metal braces in my younger days and I don’t particularly want a repeat performance. I had the metal ones and they were never at an point fun! But now it looks like one of my front teeth has decided to go on a wayward journey and I would like to know if it would have to be braces to fix this? Especially, would it have to be metal braces? I am happy to listen to your advice on this matter if you can please. Regards.
