User :   Hi Doctor
Doctor :   Hi
User :   I have a query
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   The arrangement of my teeth is not orderly
Doctor :  
Please go ahead
User :   In the front row, for 2 frontal treeths - there are substitutes behind
User :   Also, in lower row, there is mis-arrangement
User :   So, it looks awkward
User :   My friends are suggesting to go in for removal of these extra tooth
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
What is your age?
User :   But I have heard that removal of front upper tooth will affect the brain
Doctor :  
What did you notice them?
User :   my age is 23
User :   male
User :   Also, the 4 tooth needs to be removed - 2 duplicate tooth needs to be placed in order
Doctor :  
First and foremost
User :   Iam told by some of my relatives that duplicate tooth don't match the strength of original tooth - so they are suggesting it to be as such -
Doctor :  
Removal of teeth will not affect brain
Doctor :  
Second
Doctor :  
I cannot comment on appropriateness of treatment without examining your teeth
Doctor :  
And I cannot vouch for the advice given by your relatives as I safely presume that they are not trained Dentists
Doctor :  
Is there anything else that I can help you with?
User :   ok doctor - let my case be
User :   is the duplicate tooth equal in strength to the original tooth
User :   generally - so I can get my condition examined by a dental doctor & get advise
Doctor :  
I did not understand by your term 'DUPLICATE TEETH'
User :   or shall I fix metal clips to organise the orientation - will clip fixing help @ this age ?
Doctor :  
Do you mean dentures
Doctor :  
or permanent teeth in two rows
User :   the artifical tooth set in place of an original obe
Doctor :  
Did you put the dentures or implants?
User :   yes doctor - i forgot the term dentures
User :   is it possible to remove a teeth from its original position and replace it in a slightly different position such that it looks good ?
Doctor :  
yes
Doctor :  
I understood
Doctor :  
Dentures are to be maintained well
Doctor :  
and they remain strong
Doctor :  
The possibility to remove a teeth from its original positin and replace in another is not possible
User :   what is diff. between dentures & implants
Doctor :  
Denture is cheap and non functional replacement of the original teeth
Doctor :  
Implants are costly and bio functionally similar to original permanent teeth
User :   in case of dentures, then do I need to remove all my original teeth ??
Doctor :  
Dentures are removable by sle
Doctor :   self
Doctor :  
Always implants are better
Doctor :  
and suitable
Doctor :  
functionally and aesthetically
User :   doctor, can u give a rough estimate of an implant
User :   i meant the cost
Doctor :  
20,000 t0 30,000
Doctor :  
per implant
Doctor :  
also depends on the Dentist and the material used
User :   in that also - are there many grades doctor ??
Doctor :  
yes
User :   is there any periodic manitenance for these implants - making me to go to a dentist - say once in 6 months or once in a year or so ??
Doctor :  
Yeah once in a year, if you have implants or not, any person should visit a dentist once a year
User :   ok fine doctor - is there any sort of special periodic cleaning or so to be done for these implants (Apart from daily brushing !!)
Doctor :  
Not required the same general dental measures
Doctor :  
apply
Doctor :  
You have to mention to your Doctor about the Implants
Doctor :  
MRI should not be done for people who hve implants
User :   ok doctor - not coming to my case - I think it would cost me more - bcoz i need to go in atleast for 4 ~ 5 implants.
User :   I have seen guys wearing metal clips fixed to all the teeth
User :   the clip pulls the teeth in required direction and orients the arrangement of teeth
User :   is that possible at my age now - 23
User :   these guys wear these clips for 2 or 3 years
Doctor :  
I cannot comment without physical examinatino
User :   in general - doctor, do you think these clips have significant effect in arranging the teeth
Doctor :  
Yes
User :   is there any relation in this aspect with respect to age
User :   my assumption is that, clips work good in young ages and have no effect at this age (more than 20 or so)
User :   iam not sure about that assumption - it is what I heard from people around - if iam wrong pls correct me'
Doctor :   It is good fit for people in young age
Doctor :  
I hope this may not help you
User :   so, for my age doctor ?? (General question irrespective of my actual condition ? )
Doctor :  
Not suitable
User :   so,in that case, i need to save money to go in for implants in case i need to look good !!
Doctor :  
if taken for short term
Doctor :   Whether the clip shall suit you or not
Doctor :  
depends on the number of teeth misarranged
Doctor :  
the gap that is present to put the clip
Doctor :  
your age
Doctor :  
etc
Doctor :  
so do not take a decision about it now
User :   fine doctor - do u know some good dental doctors in chennai - so I can get my condition shown to them ??
