Can braces fix my overcrowding problem?

July 20th, 2011
Q.

Dear Raha Sepehrara,
please could you give me a little bit of advice? I had a brace as a child, but after my ‘train tracks’ were removed i never wore my retainer. this was fine for years until i hit my mid-twenties and my wisdom teeth all came through, now i feel my mouth is extremely overcrowd and iam not sure what to do. Iam no long registered with a NHS dentist therefore treatment will have to come out of my own pocket. please advice me on the cheapest treatment for this

July 20th, 2011
Q.

Hello Dr. Qureshi, Iam writing to you because I am a concerned mother. My son is due to start secondary school in september and has rather crooked teeth, our family dentist said she wants to wait til he’s older then refer him for a NHS brace. However I would like him to start secondary school with straighter teeth, I know its not possible for them to be perfect in 2months but Iam sure that we can start? He’s a really shy little boy and I dont want him to get bullied so whats the best method to get his teeth sorted? Money isn’t a issue, thansk for your help

What are the best braces for my twisted teeth?

July 19th, 2011
Q.

hi

i have had bad teeth all my life, crooked and twisted etc, i have always kept them in the best of health though, but i think it is past time that i let them stay in the state they are in. I have twisted teeth throughout my mouth, visible from every angle and i just wondered what would be the best brace system for me to use to solve my problems? I am looking for something that is effective yet discreet so any help you could give me on making my choice would be very much appreciated.

Thank you

Where can I find a NHS dentist were I can get braces?

July 19th, 2011
Q.

On this website site www.braces.org.uk it says that adults can get braces on the NHS for around £200 (the train track version) however I can’t seem to find a dentist that does braces on the NHS. I was wondering if you’d be able to advise me on dentists that do braces on the NHS around the london or greater london area as private is a lot more expensive.
Also I was told today that to get my bottom teeth straightened I would need to also get my top teeth done as bottom teeth align to the top teeth.
Thank you for your time.

could you please tell me the correct way to clean a fixed brace? I have had it for about a month now and I am finding it pretty difficult to clean. I understand that problems such as dental and decay can happen because of fixed braces and i really, really don’t want that to happen to me, so what would you say is the best way to clean a fixed brace and what are the best tools for the job?

i really appreciate your time and help doctor

Can I get braces after gum disease?

July 19th, 2011
Q.

I have recently suffered from gum disease but have undergone the correct treatment to sort it out and my dentist has given me the all clear. Do you think i will be a viable candidate for braces? I have a large overbite, which makes me look kinda goofy so I would like to know the best braces for treating this condition. I would like the braces to be a little bit discreet but i don’t mind if they are fixed or removable, as Iam a little self conscious which is my reason for getting braces in the first place.  any advice you could give on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Is the invisalign best for me?

July 19th, 2011
Q.

i have quite a lot of gaps between my teeth, like all of my teeth are spaced out a bit too much. I really like the idea of invisalign because it seems so discreet and unnoticeable but just wondered if it would be effective enough for all of my gaps. There is almost a gap between every tooth! Also what is the general price for a course of invisalign just so I can work out a budget. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated and thanks for your time

Will the Inman aligner damage my teeth?

July 19th, 2011
Q.

Hello Doctor, I hope you are well

I was just wondering about Inman aligners. It sounds like one of the best treatments being very fast and much cheaper than some of the other more modern braces but could you tell me how it works. I understand there are opposing pressures and am just mildly worried that this could damage my teeth. Has this ever been the case? My problem is mainly my front teeth which are slighly buck, what is the general treatment time for a condition such as this?

thank you for your time doctor
