Question: I would like to go for an orthodontic treatment for proper alignment of my upper set of teeth.
I did for this kind of treatment when I was in my school days but it was not completed due to other issues.

Thanks for your query.

The orthodontic treatment can be done almost at any age. As you have mentioned that your earlier treatment was not completed due to some reasons, you can always get it done now.

There should not be any complications. I would suggest that you visit an orthodontist with you x-rays i.e.: OPG (Orthopantogram) and Lat. Ceph which are required for treatment planning.

Hope this answer helps. If you have any more queries, do let us know.

Thanks for your reply. Could you tell me what would be the cost of this kind of treatment? Where can I find this kind of treatment done in Bangalore?

Best regards,

Orthodontic treatment cost varies depending on the type of braces used i.e.: metal/ceramic. Metal ones are cheaper than ceramic.

Metal braces cost somewhere around 30-0000/- (approx) where as ceramic ones cost 45-0000/- (approx)

Cost varies from doctor to doctor as well depending on the experience and type of clinic.

Im having extreme foot and ankle pain. It started about 8 months ago and is gradually getting worse. Ive been wearing a brace lately and it doesnt hwlp. I have.swelling and sometimes its hard to walk. Its affecting my work. I need to know, should i go to the emergency room?

doctor1 MD

Yes. I have bowed legs and I was wondering if I got a brace if that would help straighten permanently? My back is pretty bad and I am 21 years old. By the time I qualify for surgery the extensive damage will already be done. If a brace is a good idea, what type should I get?

My son soon to be 41yrs old had an injury at work that completely amputed his dominant right arm and externally amputed the external 98%. It was held on by a slither of skin in 2009. He has had 5 surgies. A bridge like bar inside the upper part of his arm and lower cavador nerves in the lower part. He has what they call a bear claw hand and wrist just flops so he has to wear a wrist brace but even though he has no feeling in certain parts of his hand he is in pain always especially in the cold. And where the bridge in the upper arm is you can t touch at all because it causes great pain. His WC cade was closed and now is on SSD and Medicare part A&B,but would never be able to afford any kind of medical bill balances. His medicines have cause him to have his teeth decay and he of course has no dental coverage at all. He needs a doctors that are willing to take care of his teeth with extractions and dentures but most important one that is willing to amputee his arm and give him a robotic one so he would once again have two arms and hands that work without pain any longer and then fix his teeth to aldso spot that pain and get him off his meds. But he also needs this all to be done pro bono since he would not be able to afford any cost. He is in the Bronx,NY.

I have a small lympe node in my neck. I have had it for sometime and my ENT noticed it again in my recent check-up. Has a Sono and waiting result. I have recently started with allergies and also stopped my Invisalign (clear braces) which I think was making me sick.

How would an ENT treat this? Can this be removed without surgery even if I've had it long term? I have no symptoms.

Note: I went to see my ENT for suppoedly Acid Reflux and this was noticed.

Thank you!
