Do all braces require impressions of the mouth to be taken?

January 8th, 2013
Q.

My front teeth are crooked. I have regular dental care and I am 31 years old. When having previous dental treatment for fissure sealant I had a mould taken of my teeth and found it extremely unpleasant. Is tooth straightening treatment possible without such a mould being taken? This is one of the key reasons that I am nervous about such treatment. Whether the mould is warmed, cold or flavoured, I don’t think I would want to tolerate it. I hope you can give some helpful advice. I have read up about the various tooth-straightening techniques and they all seem to require the taking of moulds/impressions in the mouth.

Can I still have Inman Aligner braces with my tongue condition?

January 8th, 2013
Q.

I have a tongue thrusting issue, which have caused problems with my front teeth, which now go forward, because of the many years with my condition. Would you be able to tell me whether the inman aligner would be a good choice for me in looking for a brace? Also, what can I do about the continued tongue thrusting and what can I do to stop my teeth from moving back to the way they were before, if my tongue thrusting is not treated properly I would really like a straight ‘flat’ smile for once in my life. Thank you for your help doctor
