Hi,
Malaligned teeth results in lack of smile and loss of confidence.You need to consult an orthodontist for a fixed orthodontic treatment to get your teeth aligned. The earlier you start the treatment the better will be the result.

Hi!
I think this is the right age to get your protuded and malaligned teeth corrected. Orthodontic treatment which implies the correction of dental malalignement, will help. After some years of orthodontic treatment surely the results will amaze you and broaden your smile. Take care.

hello,
your teeths can be corrected if your supporting gums and bone are not infected. if not infected then no problem go to an orthodontist , take an OPG and lateral cephalogram to analyse your problem severity. according to the severity orthodontist will decide your treatment. take care. happy smile.

Approach a dentist. Is it that difficult? He willl examine and telll you what you will need to do. My sister also had protruding teeth which was spoiling her look. She saw dentist, who suggested braces, then she used it regularly for 6 months with sitting with the dentist eevry month to tighten them. Now she looks so nice, we are getting so many proposals for her. earlier we were worried as she was not getting any marriage proposals.

Hi I need help. I m having braces soon because I want my underbite to be fixed. Should I get braces or a jaw surgery will be the best way to correct? (Only four lower teeth is forward to the front teeth and the others are okay I guess) please help me. It would mean a lot.

Hello I am 17 years old and I am still a thumb sucker. My front teeth have been pushed out allowing my tongue to go through the gap. When I was little, I also had a boot thrown at my face causing my front teeth to chip as well, making my teeth look smaller and misshapen. I am extremely self conscious about my smile and avoid it when I can. I had braces when I was younger but didn t complete the process because my mom wasn t up to date with all of my appointments. I am also entering college and don t want to be known as the braceface . My question is, how can I correct my problem? I have medicaid and want to know if what I need done will be covered or not?

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.
