Question:

Hi. My teeth need orthodontics as you can see in the photo. Will my teeth get fixed with orthodontics? How much does it cost? Thanks for your help.



Dr Answer:

Hi. Yes, your problem can be resolved with the fixed orthodontic treatment, and you can pay the cost in installments in my clinic.

Question:

Hi. I’m 25 years old and I had orthodontics done by you in 2012. My removable orthodontic treatment concluded in 2014. My problem was the gaps between my teeth. The wire mounted on the back of my teeth is still in its place. Will the wire stay forever, or should I visit you again? What days are you in your Fatemi clinic? Thanks a lot.



Dr Answer:

Greetings.
To keep the retainer on the back of your teeth depends on the orthodontist’s opinion and the method of treatment. Please visit the clinic for a check-up and an in-person examination of your teeth, so I can make a full assessment. I’m in my Fatemi clinic on Saturdays, Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. You can call and make an appointment for a check-up.

Question:

Dr. Darvishpour hi. I was introduced to you by a friend of mine. I have a question. How much does orthodontics cost for one jaw (upper jaw)? Can it be paid in installments, and if yes, how much does it cost each month?



Dr Answer:

Hi. I recommend that you visit the clinic for a free of charge consultation and an in-person examination of your teeth. You can pay the cost of the orthodontic treatment in installments in my clinic.

Question:

Hi. I had lower jaw surgery without having an orthodontic treatment last February. My jaw was closed for two months, and ever since it got unlocked I cannot close my mouth properly. My surgeon said that the location of the incision had been rotated and I should have another surgery. I had another surgery on my left side, but after 9 months since my first surgery, still my face swells whenever I do intense sports. I’m not satisfied with the result of my surgery. Some of my friends say that I looked better before the surgery. Also, I have difficulty chewing food. The food falls behind my teeth all the time. I want to know is it possible to fix my problems?



Dr Answer:

Hi. Please visit an orthodontist for a more precise and thorough examination.

Greetings.
Fixed orthodontic treatment along with a jaw surgery takes around one year.

General dentists have not completed a three-year academic specialty program in orthodontics in a credible university and as a result they have not acquired the sufficient skill and knowledge to practice orthodontics. Therefore, orthodontic treatment done by non-specialists can have irreparable consequences for patients.

If oral hygiene is maintained regularly during the orthodontic treatment according to the orthodontist’s advice and given instructions, there won’t be any tooth decay. As patients may know, since the backside of the braces and rubber bands are suitable places for microbial growth, maintaining oral hygiene during orthodontics is of significant importance, so it is essential to clean the teeth with toothbrush and dental floss, as you were taught, after each meal.

Though, it is possible the teeth seem duller during fixed orthodontics. That’s because the orthodontic braces and wires on the teeth prevent the toothbrush being brushed on their surface. However, this will be resolved by polishing when treatment is completed.

Very little. The first few days of orthodontics and in appointments where new adjustments are made, the patients may experience some pain, but the pain disappears on its own. The pain from orthodontics is very insignificant compared to the pain from tooth extraction, root canal, etc. In case of any pain, the patient can also use mild painkillers the first few days.

Orthodontics can also be done in adulthood and at an older age. At an older age, orthodontics is mostly done to correct misaligned teeth and dental irregularities and to have a more beautiful smile. In fact, orthodontics is possible as long as gums are healthy and there are teeth. To be assured of the health of the gums, brush a soft toothbrush on them. If there was bleeding, the gums should be treated first and then proceed with orthodontics.

The type of abnormality, patient’s age, the kind of problem, etc. are all the issues involved in choosing an orthodontic approach. Therefore, no specific method can be used just because of the patient’s wish and insistence. Removable braces are usually used at earlier ages (12 to 14) and are mostly used to fix the jaw. Therefore, because the jaw won’t grow anymore after this age,, removable braces won’t have any significant effect. At an older age, fixed braces are used and surgery should be considered to fix the jaws.

One of the advertisements lately seen in social media and other places is straightening the teeth without orthodontics, referred to as one-day orthodontics, orthodontics with laser, fast orthodontics, etc. In these methods, in fact, there is no movement of the teeth and just the extruded and crooked parts are pared down along with the enamel. The recessed parts are filled with laminate and composite. As patients may already know, although these methods are cheaper and faster than orthodontics, they won’t have the durability and permanent effectiveness of orthodontics. In these methods, the teeth will decay in the pared areas and after a while the composites will change color and need further repair. Therefore, it is advised to be patient and with the increased awareness and understanding of the importance of healthy teeth, don’t make a mistake in choosing the wrong options with irreparable consequences
