Buck teeth correction

Common Questions and Answers about Buck teeth correction


Avatar n tn I am currently 22 and my teeth have begun shifting again. I have a minor crossbite on both sides of my jaw along the entire jaw line (front to back). I've also recently been having slight clicking in my jaw (possibly TMJ). Obviously, my expander did not do it's job when I was 16, and I'm now not sure how to correct my bite and, subsequently, the slight crowding of my top teeth again.
Avatar n tn How many teeth in total does your child have? You should should have approximately 20 teeth at this age.
Avatar n tn When my son gets here I was considering giving him a Binky because baby's seem to love them and they are life savers! But I've heard the cause buck teeth, or rotted teeth and its very hard to get them off of it. Any opinions?
Avatar f tn Hi, teeth aren't really the concern. Her teeth now are the baby teeth and yes, they can become crooked. But she has adult teeth growing under her gums that won't come in until she is 5 to 7. I was a thumb sucker way back when and it was a big trick at family events to show how I could slip my thumb under my front teeth without opening my jaw (I know . . .YUCK! but I was a kid and thought that was cool!) Anyway, my permanent teeth came in straight and I have never needed braces.
Avatar m tn I have almost no permanant teeth. Not sure if this is true but I had a full mouth x-ray and I had only 3 roots. I did however, save my teeth that fell out when I was little and supposely gave way to permanant teeth. It's strange though since I saved 9 teeth and I only have 3 teeth with roots. Does this mean that I have permanent teeth without roots? If not then what pushed my teeth out then?
Avatar f tn m really worried about this type of paci giving her buck teeth. I can already tell she has a bit of an overbite, but I THINK (from looking at pictures) I had this too when I was a baby and I never took a paci of any sort. I now have perfectly straight teeth, with no help from braces, etc... What do you think? Would this type of paci cause buck teeth? Should I take it away now, even though it is going to be a LONG, HARD process?
Avatar m tn d really be like something straight out of Monty Python like that skit where the director had the buck teeth going down to his waist and everyone in his films had huge buck teeth like that.
Avatar n tn I have just been through my first permanent dental bridge session for my lowering teeth. During his prepping my "anchor" teeth for dental bridge placement, my dentist found 2 of my teeth were abscessed and required emergency root canals,which he immediately performed. After this, his assistant worked on and installed my temporary crown. Since, my mouth was still completely numb from the Novocain injections I was unable to feel the temporary crown.
Avatar n tn Crowding can be caused by improper eruption of teeth and early or late loss of primary teeth. Space can be created by expansion of the arches or extraction of teeth. Correction of crowding can help prevent dental decay and periodontal disease. The prognosis and final outcome can be determined only after a thorough clinical evaluation. Hope it helped. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn When to loose teeth? when the remainging teeth are hopeless, have no benefit overall, the patient is not interested, the patient is not complying with the strict dental hygiene care required to get a result.
Avatar f tn A Tea Party-backed Senate candidate in Colorado was caught on tape Friday referring to 'birthers' who question President Obama's citizenship as "dumbasses." Republican Ken Buck, who has harnessed Tea Party support to become the front-runner for the GOP Senate nomination, made the comment unsolicited to a Democratic staffer after an event in Pueblo, Colorado.

10203682 tn?1418693754 S ucked my thumb and could actually put my thumb UNDER my two buck teeth. ha ha. So pretty!! You should see the pictures. Teeth fell out. Teeth came in straight. Now, had I continued to s uck my thumb as my permanent teeth were coming in? I don't know. I will tell you that teeth are always moving. That is why so many kiddos need spacers and then a second set of braces after the first that straightened their teeth. Ha, I didn't use a pacifier.
787406 tn?1339203183 Well, first------------ it doesn't make kids teeth permanently buck. Um . . . those baby teeth fall out, remember? And not usually until age 5.5 or 6 does the average first lower tooth fall out. The structure of the jaw is not affected by a pacifier. Now, the soft palate, on the other hand is. And early on---------- the use of a pacifier is actually beneficial for this. Soothing and self soothing is really important for children psychologically.
Avatar n tn I had scleral buck operation four weeks ago for my right eye. The docotr said everything is all right after checking. However I can feel the flash around the right corner of the right eye ( where the problem was before). The doctor said it may due to the retina is still under recovery. May I ask did any anyone have this experience before or does anyone know why? Will the flash go when the retina is fully recovery?
184342 tn?1282588750 The dentist did warn us that when her teeth did come in, she would most likely push them out (buck-teeth) since she wouldn't be used to having a barrier for her tongue. Sure enough, they stick forward now and she won't bite with them. I thought it was because she wasn't used to them, but I guess it is hard to bite with teeth in this position. Hmm...she is just starting orthodontia work at age 7....space maintainers. Nice! I'm glad both kids are doing well today!
Avatar f tn Hi, try salt water gargle after every use,and the thrush,Zovirax cream.. there's not really much you can do about it ,but I find when I get stressed out I tend to follow up with a bout of thrush,so stay in the sun and be happy , good luck with the tan .
Avatar n tn I had to have my teeth removed because the dentist did some fillings on me about 3 months after heart surgery. When they extracted my teeth, they left two teeth in so that I would have bone structure. I have had trouble ever since . If I had inflames gums because of my teeth, why would they leave two nubs in my mouth. I had denture made and they rub on the nubs that were left in and it is very uncomfortable. I have had other problems with my eyes and I have been going to Dr.
Avatar f tn My ten month old daughter still has no teeth. My fiance is in Dental School to become a dentist and is REALLY worried saying that it's not normal. On top of that her vaginal opening is closed and only has a tiny hole about the size of a pen point. The doctors said they won't do more tests until she's older. My fiance says that the two problems could be linked and that she may truly be a boy??
Avatar f tn If it remains there wont it cause my other teeth to shift? or problems with them? Plus the pain will just get worse over time I would have thought?
Avatar m tn During implant of Rezoom lens for catarract surgery, my doctor did relaxing incisions to correct the astigmatism in left eye which said was a 5. That was June 27th, '07. Since then he has done one laser correction in his office to "fine tune" the astigmatism problem, and it looks like he will have to do that at least one more time. The eye is improving but very slowly and he seems confident it will be fine in time. I'm having the other eye done next week. March 12 '08.
