FAQ:  OverJet - Flared Teeth

  • Overjet Fix: I am 22 and have had a bad overjet of my front two teeth my whole life. In my teens I was given braces as well as a twin block plate, as I had jaw alignment problems as well. After using both of these for several years there was no improvement. I don't wish to repeat braces or the plate but am hoping to get some sort of decent smile, perhaps through cosmetic dentistry. The only problem is I know nothing about it. I'm not so fussed on my jaw being out of line but I would really like my front two teeth to look normal so that I have a straight smile. At my last appointment the overjet of the the two was pretty severe so I am wondering if anything can be done to fix this? .... Visitor from CA     (answer)

  • Surgery versus Braces: I am 22 years old. My upper teeth is slightly protruding. So I want to correct my protruding teeth. Last week I consulted one cosmetic dentist who suggested to me to go for cosmetic surgery to enhance my smile. But he told that teeth cant be pushed inside and only smile will be enhanced. But my expectation is teeth should be pushed in and I should comfortably close my mouth. So please tell me which method is better. Can only braces solve this matter or by surgery I can correct it within one week. I dont like to wear braces as it will take long time to corrct it. So please whom I have to consult regarding this matter. .... Visitor from Maharastra, India     (answer)
