Top Questions


I recently saw this ad on Facebook for a company named Zenyum that provides invisible braces from SGD 2,200. This seems like a fairly new company, so I was just wondering how it compares to other clear aligner brands like Invisalign, MBrace and ClearSmile? Thanks! 

Hello Doctors! I’m a female in her 20s undergoing Invisalign treatment. My concerns are to correct my severe overjet and overbite. I've been told that I may need to remove a pair of my premolars to make space for fixing my overbite. 

I have been told by a dentist that I need to extract healthy teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment. I understand that there are non-extraction orthodontic treatment options as well. I would like to better understand what are the advantages of extraction vs non-extraction orthodontic treatments, such as IPR? Thank you.

I am currently undergoing Invisalign treatment. Unfortunately I also have tooth decay/cavities due to bad dental hygiene as a child. My Dentist said that she’ll keep an eye on the decay but didn’t provide any possible treatment plans. What can I do about my tooth decay and cavities during Invisalign, and how will it affect my treatment?

 

I just wondering if removal of wisdom tooth is necessary before putting on braces. If so, when is it necessary to extract your wisdom tooth before braces?

I am 32 years old, and realised that my teeth are getting more crooked. I would like to find out what are some cost effective methods for treating my crooked teeth. 

I have a crowned pre-molar tooth that has been with me for 3 years. Can I go ahead with braces without removing the crowned tooth? What are the considerations? I have spent quite a sum on it, and extracting the tooth or removing the crown seems wasteful.

I'm 20 and I've been dealing with uncomfortable malocclusions and overcrowded teeth my whole life. I have layers of teeth, and some baby teeth still. My mouth physically hurts due to the teeth pushing on each other. When is braces or orthondontics treatment deemed to be medically necessary? Is my condition bad enough to be considered medically necessary for treatment? Most insurance plans do not cover the work I need done unless it's deemed necessary.
