Teeth problems after braces

Common Questions and Answers about Teeth problems after braces


Avatar n tn At the age of 29 I was having really bad TMJ problems (daily migraines) even though my teeth were pretty and fairly straight. After getting braces because my bite was off, the pain stopped within 2 months! Braces are not that big of a deal and aren't going to prohibit you from doing anything (except maybe eating caramel apples).
Avatar n tn m not an orthodontist, but I can tell you a few things as an adult who just finished having braces...Yes, teeth can be crooked after taking the braces off, especially when patients aren't compliant about following through with the retainment plan set out by the orthodontist, but even then there are some cases where teeth move back into their crooked position. There are lots of pros to braces.

Avatar n tn Damen braces is a new technology available and they work a little like palate expanders but you’ll need to read for yourself and visit a professional before you know if this is for you. After damen braces if you have the space you will have to have four teeth implanted and you should gain a fuller smile.
Avatar f tn I was told for a over bite and some bad rotated front teeth the same for braces but after of years my dentist brought it up to me again saying I should get invisaligns which are better and with out any pain compared to braces you get pain and cuts from the metal also it can be the same amount on with metal braces
Avatar n tn Yes braces can cause shorter roots , thats because they moved your teeth very quickly the is caused the roots to be shifted/shortened.... but that shouldnt be why your having pain now.....
Avatar f tn Does anyone know if you can get braces (for your teeth) while pregnant? I'm 15 weeks 1day I have been wanting to before I got pregnant but I just never made a dentist appointment to go and so now I was wondering...
Avatar f tn Hi, just reaching out to see if anyone has gone through what I'm currently experiencing. Since I had my braces tightened in August I began having burning tingling sensations on my lip. Which I just assumed I'd gotten herpes. However, after going to several doctors and buying multiple vitamin supplements it seems that is not the case. Has anyone else experienced this pain and small bumps popping up that's triggers from braces on your teeth.
Avatar n tn I am about 6 months into orthodontic treatment using Invisalign. I have an open-bite and receeded chin which causes me to have mild lip and chin strain when closing my mouth. After about a month wearing the aligners I realized they just added too much more strain to my lips and chin when closing my mouth.
Avatar f tn There may be an issue with your technique or possibly with the alignment of your teeth. Your dentist should be bringing you back after weeks after the deep cleaning to re-evaluate the gums and check on the healing. He should also probably do any necessary cleaning at that time and will make his recommendation for further treatment (if the deep cleaning hasn't resolve the issue) or a maintenance program to prevent further problems and avoid further deep cleanings.
Avatar m tn i have braces on top and bottom teeth (dont no if that could be a factor). i got my braces tightened 3 days ago and the sensitivity started this morning. i was thinking it could also be that my teeth have been moving around. i really dont want a cavity on one of my front teeth.
Avatar f tn it does not make any difference to the teeth if you wear it for long, instead you will have other problems like ulceration and calculus deposit on the teeth due to improper brushing. Please get the braces removed immediately. Apply Hexigel and Mucopain ointments alternatively 3-4 times a day and leave it for half an hour. Do not rinse or take water. The symptoms may subside in 3-4 days. Please consult another dentist if the symptoms persist. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
Avatar m tn I have braces and my teeth look yellow with white streaks all overs them. They are almost a transparent color and i am very upset by this. I brush 2 times a day but its just not enough.. Please help me fix this problem before my braces come off and i am horified. What can i do to fix this problem?
Avatar n tn t know what you do about the frontal teeth because sealing is mainly done for the back teeth. The front teeth may now be an available option too. If you go for a check-up, I'm sure the dentist can give you many helpful hints on ways to prevent cavities while wearing braces. I think my husband's problem was he wasn't a good brusher while wearing his. I'm just proud we had the sealing done on my son's teeth.
Avatar n tn ve seen the new dentist four times now, and each time he is more persistent about me getting braces, specifically Invisalign. He says the way my top teeth are hitting my bottom teeth will certainly cause chipping in the future as my teeth get more brittal. If someone would please answer the following questions I would greatly appreciate it: -Is having a class 3 Malocclusion a serious problem that needs attention? -Do people with an underbite normally get it fixed? If so, with braces?
Avatar m tn yea i agree if no pain dont touch them!!.... why fix something that isnt broken??!!!.....i wouldnt have them removed cause, yes your could have some damage after, the roots of your teeth are very close to the nerve in your jaw, and if they are in very low chances are they are inbeded int he nerve already. going in there and taking them out might aggrivate that erve and cause yoiu some pain......
Avatar n tn The only thing I had wrong with my teeth was that they weren’t straight, other than that I had no problems with my teeth. I really need help because it has been half a year and I am incredibly frustrated all the time. I miss talking and eating properly. I miss being able to close my mouth the most because it doesn’t feel right at all. What should I do?
Avatar n tn t careful with the cleaning, your teeth will be stained and pitted when you get your braces of and then you'll wish you had a few thousand dollars for veneers.
Avatar f tn This is a a really important topic specially since most of IP people have teeth problems. My dentist decided to not remove my baby teeth unless an adult tooth would be coming out. At age 11 I got braces with some adult teeth and some baby teeth.
Avatar m tn I had braces at a relatively older age than most people in my early 40s. The dentist warned me at that point that if I was to get braces then he couldn't guarantee the strength of my teeth in the future (older age) and said I might have complications. I read braces were allowed at any age, but why did he warn me at that time? I'm 58 now and my teeth are a bit crooked and I've lost several teeth as well.
1006035 tn?1485575897 One of my sons was 4 and one was 3. Here is something interesting---- my son has beautiful white straight teeth. I mean, they are gorgous (if I may gush for a second about my son's teeth . . .). So, at his second visit when he was 4 they did x rays. First they tell me that his front teeth will probably come in crooked from how they were positioned (adult teeth under the babies) and then they said he had a place where a cavity was forming. They showed it to me.
Avatar f tn anyone addicted for 5 plus years experiencing rotten teeth and dental problems
Avatar m tn Eight years is an unusually long time to have braces, so taking very good care of your teeth while the braces were on is imperative. A foul odor usually means there is decay but it can also be caused by plaque or food caught between the gum and tooth causing the swelling...and this needs to be addressed. A cavity and a rotting tooth ARE the same thing.You need to stop using mouthwash so much...using it this often can create problems instead of helping.
Avatar n tn is certainly NOT along time in the field of orthodontics. moving teeth too quickly can cause any/all of a myriad of problems, including root resorbtion, bony defects, pain, teeth fracture, the need for root canal treatment etc. thus, the case should not be rushed. You should discuss your case with your orthodontist. The length of time required for your case should have been one of the many things that were discussed before it was started.
Avatar n tn We were told that there were also teeth missing and that applying the braces would fill in the gaps. Now 2 teeth are trying to come in between the teeth that have been pulled together by the braces, and the doctor wants to extract them now. We were told these teeth were genetically missing. I think the braces were applied to early, before all her teeth had a chance to grow in. I can upload the exray.
