Teeth problems after braces

Common Questions and Answers about Teeth problems after braces


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 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 f tn I have been seeing a dentist who has been doing occlusal adjustment for my tmd problems. One thing that could be important for you - my insurance would NOT cover anything for these occlusal adjustments - you may find the same problem with braces, if they are being used "to correct tmd problems". In my case, he removes a small amount of material from teeth that are not meeting up properly with opposing teeth.
Avatar n tn I'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 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 f tn Is it possible for you teeth to move out of place after you get your wisdom teeth taken out?? I got my wisdom teeth taken out 3 days ago, and it feels like and looks like the teeth on my right side have moved out of place. Also, I still have numbness on my chin and lips and teeth. The dentist said it's most likely the nerve is bruised.
Avatar f tn 6 lower front and 2 front teeth. All others are still baby teeth. I was told that as long as the baby teeth are their that it will lesson the bone loss. I too have gotten conflicting stories as to the plan of action for me. I recently looked up dentist's who specialize only in implants. I hope to get answers! I have endured a lifetime of emotional problems(insecurities to name one.) Anything you can do to ease her from such things is awesome!!
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 m 18 years old and i want to get my teeth straightened... does havin braces hv any side effect in long term?? i hv overlappin teeth.. will i hv to extract my teeth?? does this have any side effect..
7552000 tn?1391918942 Hi Dave, the lest of your problems is your teeth. Yes, it is the Methadone and that is not all that it will decay. You have been on it a long time. Do you plan on being on it the rest of your life? If so, that is a shame. Have you gotten counseling, attended meetings?..anything to help with recovery? I would just love to hear that you want to get off of it......
Avatar m tn And to think that it all started from braces. I just received braces in Anchorage AK and I hope that it doesn't turn into this. I wish you all the best!
660300 tn?1224793961 I had my impacted wisdom tooth removed on 10/01/2011 (UK) and the surgeon said it had 4 roots instead of 3. 3RD molar was on the lower right hand side of my jaw.I was awake throughout with just injections & happy gas (nitrous oxide) to make the process more comfortable. Had incredible pain a few hours after & extremely sensitive teeth around the front of my lower teeth (incisors) still have the sensitive pain ,especially when it's been cold outside .
469210 tn?1219191728 Yes... I've had more teeth decay issues since TX - and actually had to have one tooth pulled because of infection. So - yeah --- I'm in for some reconstruction work - in fact - FRIDAY is dentist cleaning and "mapping out the torture plan" for me. Aggggggg. LOL! Good luck... No sugary stuff...
232921 tn?1224475261 I have never had problems with my teeth before this. Anyway, as with many of the sx, during and after tx, here is hoping that they go away soon.
209384 tn?1231171906 Had braces for 3 years when I was younger and learned to take REALLY good care of my teeth, and always have. Have been prone to cavities anyway and b/c of brushing too hard have worn away gum at gum line. Not major problems. Until recently. Tonight another huge piece of tooth broke off! Have had to have one root canal b/c tooth was there and then suddenly fell apart and now I have 2 more that have done the same thing.
Avatar f tn i looked this up and it seems common but she was not that happy about how they would look and feel, and even I felt a bit strange. Second which seemed less common was the need after her braces are fitted she would get something called a headgear. To be honest, when i saw the picture she was shown, i was needed to her in the chair I felt very uneasy. I kept a brave face asking all the right questions but i could see poor child, her eyes were glassy and wanted to cry.
209384 tn?1231171906 Anyway about the whole tooth decay issue - I am a genetic product of bad thyroid genes, although doctors have been late in diagnosing I have experienced many problems and one would be my teeth. The dentist kept on telling me no boiled sweets, no coldrinks etc brush morning and evening for at least 3 minutes and magically I would have better teeth. I only have two molars and two wisdom teeth in the back left.
Avatar n tn I did consult a orthodontist because my dentist noticed that my teeth were starting to shift. I decided to wait, knowing that it could take 1 1/2 years after facial surgery to retain full senation. In otherwords, my nerves were still on the mend.
Avatar f tn My jaw has popped for several years now which has not bothered me to much other than the annoyance of it, However several months ago I started having pain in my teeth and jaw. I saw two dentist who took X-rays and explained it could be from grinding my teeth at night. They assured me that everything else looked fine. Since then, the pain has gotten worse and comes more often. I have been taking pain relievers everyday now, and sometimes more than once a day. The pain now also goes into my ear.
Avatar n tn but my brother had this problem, we had braces and he got his off and then all of a sudden he got an adult tooth and had to get braces again!..... we usually get our 3rd molars between ages 17-21 and sometimes even after. dont freak out, just sounds like you had an extra tooth and now it coming in, but i would deff go to dentist and get that xray because you dont want anything to shift your teeth, and if you have a new tooth coming in that will happen.
Avatar f tn I started brushing regularly and flossing after that. After I had my braces removed, they put a fixed retainer behind my front teeth which I was supposed to have removed several years ago. I was also thrusting my tongue against my teeth after braces were removed which caused them to shift forward. I quit going to the dentist for 4 years due to insurance and then anxiety.
Avatar f tn Has anyone else experienced this pain and small bumps popping up that's triggers from braces on your teeth. I went to my internal medicine doctor yesterday and he said the only thing that can be causing this is my braces. I go to the orthodontist Friday but I'd just like to know I'm not alone. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Dear Taz: Your problems are probably related to TMD. Braces are generally not helpful to solve your problem. If you have top wisdom teeth and lower second and wisdom teeth present, the first thing is to remove top wisdom teeth.Occlusal appliance is generally very effective for your problems.However, not all dentists can fabricate a perfected occlusion through night guard. You need to find a hjghly competent dentist to fabricate a night guard for you.
3197167 tn?1348972206 about my teeth after wearing braces as a kid, so even when really, really doped up, I brushed and flossed. I have healthy gums, but receding from age and one hygienist said from smoking cigs. Just wondered if it was from the opiates, the soma, the xanex or the prozac??? That sounds terrible outloud. HUH? I weaned from somas and lortabs but was popping prozacs and a nerve damage pill every hr. So....my dental problems could be related to one of those drugs, too.
Avatar m tn The specialist I am seeing has developed a treatment plan that includes grinding down some of my back teeth to relieve the malocclusion, then adjusting my bite with Invisalign braces to move my lower front teeth forward. He says these teeth are crowded and have grown too long altering my bite and stressing my jaw muscles.
Avatar f tn Hello Everyone, well went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned, and was told my bone had deteriorated to much for that, but still have all my teeth, but a couple that were pulled in the back a couple of years ago and had complete periodonoc cleaning costing several thousand dollar's, have alway's taken good care of my teeth, especially after the periodonoc treatment, since have done all the flosing, and gotten special electric brush, and thought thing's were going to be great, my question is
628151 tn?1224805243 I am a 23 year old male from the US and have had no previous problems with my mouth before now. Never had braces or even a cavity so all this is very strange to me. I have had my Wisdom Teeth removed but I still have my Tonsils so here is the story... About 2 months ago I noticed a few taste buds near the back of my tongue had grown in size and began to hurt.
Avatar m tn I am 21 years old male and I have had braces on just over 4 years. I had an overbite and overjet, to correct my overjet I had to wear twin block braces for about 1 year and 5 months and a retainer for about 1 year to hold my jaw in position. They were both removable and because I found them really embarrassing I would take them out quite often which slowed down my treatment. I was then given wire braces to correct my overbite and elastics (which I am still currently wearing).
Avatar n tn I went home the temp crowns on both teeth. Several days afterward I was in a lot of pain. I went back to see him and he now tells me that I have an infection in the root of the molar and now needed a root canal on the molar. He further explains that this infection was not there before and was likely a result of removing the old filling. I went to an endodontist and had the root canal. A month later I am still having pain.
