Can I Have Braces With My Dental Implant?

April 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Fahey. Just a quick question. Is there any way I can have braces with my dental implant? I understand it won’t move that tooth at all but I’m worried that the braces may cause it to come loose or damage the crown which is on top of the implant. Have you known this to happen before? I would just love some general ideas before I visit my dentist for a consultation, so I know what to talk about when when I go to visit him. Thank you for your time in advance and I hope you don’t think this is a stupid question. Thanks!

I was told orthodontic treatment would be free for my missing dentist but now they say it’s not. Can you advise?

January 3rd, 2013
Q.

Hello! I have a missing lateral incisor and a crown on the other lateral incisor. My canine has been scraped small, so they could try to fit one big false tooth there but I refused because it looked weird. This procedure was made in Africa in 2008. Now I have a missing tooth and a crown which is starting to smell!!!! I went to my local dentist for a check up and asked them to remove the crown. I also asked them to refer me to the orthodontist but he refused to remove the crown. The reception gave me the orthodontist’s number. I called them and asked them to give me an appointment. They said because I was 20 years old that it was not free but told them that I have a HC2 form but they said it was private appointment . A dentist told me that the procedure would be free because I had a missing tooth!!!! please help? Is this right or wrong? Will I get a free treatment because of my missing tooth? If I have to pay for braces how much will it be? By the way I have not broken or damaged the missing tooth. After my baby teeth fell out x-rays should no lateral incisor on my left side and a very small lateral incisor on my right side(which looks like a baby teeth but now has a crown).

December 6th, 2012
Q.

Hello doctor, I live in aberdeen. I am forty and I work in the NHS. I have a couple of irregular teeth in my lower jaw, which makes me a bit definsive and affects my confident in a negative manner. To a great extent, I am concerned about this and have had an impact on my confidence. Is there a solution for this now..or a range of options from the dental treatments? it would be really great if you could give me a bit on information about what is available out there in terms of treatment and for someone only able to afford £2500 worth of treatment. I appreciate an answer to this Thanking You

Is my dentist right closing my missing tooth gaps with braces, rather than implants?

November 8th, 2011
Q.

Hello there, I would like a second opinion on my orthodontic treatment and dental implants! When I was 10 years old I extracted my first molar/left lower jaw as it was so decayed, the empty socket, overtime shrinked and caused my face to be uneven! When I was 17 years old, I had to remove the rest of the First molars (upper left/upper right/lower right) because of decay! Today I am 22 years old and I can notice that I am starting to age prematurely as the gaps from the molar extractions are starting to shrink, causing my face to get smaller, hollow eyes, “melting face ” kind of effect so I was thinking to have bone graft (as I lost serious bone) and then dental implants. But there is one small problem! I started my orthodontic treatment 1 year ago, for a severe malocclusion from where I will have to have jaw surgery to complete the treatment. At the start of the treatment I mentioned to my orthodontist I would like to keep the (molar extraction) gaps open so I can have dental implants but at my appoiment yesterday she said she wants to close the gaps and that’s what we’ve been doing all along during the treatment. I don’t feel is a good idea as my teeth and jaw are very small anyway and I’m scared this will make it even worse../Plus looking in the mirror and seeing my face changing I don’t like what I see/aging prematurely. Now, my questions are: Is it a good idea for my orthodontist to close the gaps? If it’s not, with orthodontic treatment is she able to stretch the gaps back to original shape so I can have the dental implants? If yes, will I be able to have the dental implants during the orthodontic treatment or after/during the jaw surgery? I feel very upset/disstresed/depressed….i stopped going out/have avoided most of my friends, when meeting someone new they guess my age at 29/31 as I look so old….. I need a second opnion/answer please! Thank you very much!

I am suffering from TMJ as a result of braces treatment gone wrong. Can you advise?

June 1st, 2011
Q.
I am currently wearing braces and have 4 missing teeth due to extractions. My bottom teeth were straight but in my opinion after treatment with braces they are now more worser. i have been told that i will have implants on the NHS, but my treatment has been ongoing for years and now i have been told that i will have another minimum of 2 yr before completion. I also have developed TMJ symptoms, due to the reposition of my bite, but although the dentist and consultants aknowledge this they do not refer me to a maxillofacial surgeon, which is only 1 floor below them in the hospital. I do not understand why this is? There are now moments where i am being told that i will recieve an appojnment by letter but none arrive, for months until i enquire over the phone. i feel that i am being neglected and on top of all that more damage is done to my teeth than is good. I am going to complain to the PCT and the chief executive of the hospital. i would however like advice on what i should do to help my TMJ. and if i can be referred to another dentist which can carry out my work under NHS funding?,
