With gaps and slanted teeth, would I be suitable for braces?

March 20th, 2012

I have gaps between all of my top teeth and two of my top teeth are a little crooked and slanted, I really want braces but I don’t know if my dentist will let me have them, do you think that is enough of a reason for me to get braces, and should I go see him or can I make an appointment straight with the orthodontist? I really want braces as my teeth annoy me and to me they look horrible so could you please help me. Thank you, this could really be of a great help

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

February 17th, 2012

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?

Could braces lead to even greater discolouration of my son’s teeth?

February 8th, 2012

Hi, My little boy’s teeth are heavily stained, despite having an excellent oral hygiene routine. However, as a baby, he was very ill with asthma and chest infections and constantly took steroids and antibiotics, and my dentist now tells me this could be the cause of the staining. I am broken hearted to see his teeth like this, can it be fixed at some point,as his dentist thinks he may have to have braces to correct his bit which is slightly off, not due to his jaw but his teeth, so he wont be in for surgery just a full brace at some stage, though this will surely make his teeth even more discoloured?? I don’t know what to do and its all going so fast, He is 10 years of age and has a mixture of baby teeth and permanent. if you could help that would be amazing. thank you
