Hello and welcome,
Thanks for writing to us.
Your dentist may have extracted your permanent premolar teeth to get spacing for orthodontic movement of teeth through orthodontic appliances.
If you are not willing for orthodontic treatment,you could have informed your dentist prior to getting the teeth extracted.
At this state,its better to get orthodontic appliances inserted.
Since your teeth are malaligned,and the only way to correct them is through braces application,please go for it.
It won't be painful and once the treatment has completed,your smile line as well as confidence level will enhance it.
Hope this helps.
I wish you good health.

Dentist Dr. Benley George's  Response
Hi,
Orthodontic correction depends on the space available in your mouth. If sufficient space is not available premolar teeth need to be extracted. Now if u r only concerned about the space of the extracted premolar tooth then you can go in for an implant or a bridge to solve it. If you have irregularly placed teeth then you have to go in for orthodontic correction.

Dentist, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Dr. Manish Gupta's  Response
hello,
Your doctor must have done the extraction in order to create space so as to move your anteriorly (forwardly) placed teeth backwards... and i am sure that he must have taken ur consent before going ahead. Anyways as such there is no rapid solution to this.... for real quick results you can opt for surgery but then it involves its own advantages and disadvantages.... if you can mail me ur radiographs on manishomfs@gmail.com then i can suggest u in detail regarding the surgical option...
take care...

hello Doctors firstly can i thank you for taking the time to answer my question, secondly, i have a question concerning whether to get braces or any other treatment (except for veneers).i have an overbite, 2 protruding lateral incisors and my canines are pushed back in comparison to my other teeth. what is noteworthy is that my left canine is very small because its still a milk tooth though i m 19 years old. A year ago i had a surgery to remove the tooth that was supposed to replace this canine (it was engraved in my palate horizontally). Hopefully you will help me out decide whether to have traditional braces,on a 6 month smile in order to enlarge my milk canine and straighten the rest of my teeth . Thank you in advance.

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!

my son has been having diarrhea for about 1 year now since he had some teeth removed and a brace fitted. The diarrhea slowed down until just recently, he had to have some more teeth removed and this has caused him to keep having diarrhea after he has eaten something. He is 14 years old. When i was his age i had teeth remove but i did not ever get this problem.
