I had an accident when I was 6 years old which caused my top right teeth to go in my gums which was repaired by a dentist back then. Now, I've got my front top and bottom teeth out of position. Top where there should be three teeths , there are only two of them which are very big and are in front, I can't close my mouth / lips properly like how normally I should, teeth are far ahead. Can braces and orthodontist help me in this to fix it? Is there a 100 % chance it can get fixed?
Adressing to ur aesthetic concern regarding ur two teeth which are forwardly placed than the rest nad about the missing front tooth; the first thing required is x-ray of ur all teeh OPG and another to see ur upper and lower jaw relation.
Based on these two x-rays the orthodontic treatment can be planned either with or without surgical intervenion.
Do not hesitate to get an opinion of an orthodontist early.
Thanks & healing regards.
Going by your description, it seems that your problems are as follows:
1. You are missing at least one tooth;
2. The upper and lower front teeth are malposed;
3. You seem unhappy with the size/ shape of some of your teeth
4. There is some difficulty in closing your lips fully, probably due to the malposed teeth.
Whether or not these issues can be sorted out with braces, other possible options (e.G. Cosmetic dental procedures, surgery etc.) and there advantages and drawbacks can and should be discussed with a dentist after a thorough work up. That will give you an idea of which route might be best suited for you, and help you make an informed decision. Hope this helps.
It can be fixed but can be diagnosed after seeing the condition and OPG
