Nothing to worry!: In case that there's not enough bone or good bone in the maxilla, new techniques and materials are available to regenerate the amount of bone needed to successfully implants placement. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip and they should last a lifetime. Good luck. ...Read more

Team treatment: Patient suffered dental and skeletal displacement and fractures. These anatomic malrelationship said have to be restored to normal for resolution of am atomic malrelationship said. Team should be assembled chaired by both an Orthodontist and an Oral surgeon who communicate well with each other and who have a track record of treating Orthognathic cases.

Can bad teeth cause face asymmetry. All my left sided teeth are pushed in towards the tounge. Can this cause the cheekbone to look sunken?

Can bad teeth cause face asymmetry. All my left sided teeth are pushed in towards the tounge. Can this cause the cheekbone to look sunken?

Yes, depending on: Extent of deformity. Also, maxillary teeth in bad repair can cause sinus problems. Have an oral or maxillo-facial surgeon take a look. It sounds like it is beyond scope of a general dentist. ...Read more

My face has been hurting for a few days. In the left jaw, cheekbone and teeth region. Now a sharp stabbing pain had started in my left eat as well.?

Could be a tooth/TMJ: When a tooth is going bad it often presents these non localized symptoms first due to the particular type of nerves in the tooth. I see this scenario quite often. With ear pain it is often a lower molar (but not always). You also may be developing a TMJ problem or possibly an ENT issue with sinuses or ear.

I've had pressure in my eye, cheekbone, & jaw for 3 months. Tumor or impacted wisdom teeth? Any help is appreciated im so worried.

Need a medical check: It is hard to guess your diagnosis like you are trying to do. Neither of the two conditions you mentioned are likely to cause you pressure. Certainly there is no tumor in this area that will cause pressure, unless it is located over your head (? Headache). Impacted teeth are asymptomatic unless they get infected which willc ause pain. You may be suffering from anxiety. seek stress relief. Walking is go ...Read more

Pain right side of face x 3 weeks. No swelling. All top teeth right side tender. Pain by nose and cheekbone. Teeth not sensitive to heat/cold. Painful to chew on that side. No nasal discharge. Toothache or Sinus? How tell the difference?

Pain right side of face x 3 weeks. No swelling. All top teeth right side tender. Pain by nose and cheekbone. Teeth not sensitive to heat/cold. Painful to chew on that side. No nasal discharge. Toothache or Sinus? How tell the difference?

Could be either: Your upper teeth sit in the wall of the maxillary sinus that is beneath the cheekbone. They could be the source of infection, or the pain could be referred to them by a sinus infection. Teeth not sensitive makes it seem more like sinus. Warm Xlear rinse could help. Three weeks is a long time and infections in this location could become serious. You probably need to have an exam/ x-ray done. ...Read more

Cheekbone pain, itchy eyebrows with discomfort, when I bite down teeth feel funny, headaches that feel pressure like, sore throat warm to touch?

Sinusitis: This sounds like classic maxillary sinusitis, with sensory nerve paresthesia that runs thru the involved sinus or else maxillary tooth inflammation. You might not require abx, but start on OTC decongestant topical spray (Afrin) for few days with nasal saline sprays. If known seasonal allergies then take meds for those as well, even OTC. Visible facial swelling or failure to improve requires abx. ...Read more

Two front teeth are slightly flared out, have habit of pushing them back (yes I will get braces) but could this push my maxilla or even midface back?

Two front teeth are slightly flared out, have habit of pushing them back (yes I will get braces) but could this push my maxilla or even midface back?

Flared teeth: You are right braces are needed to correct the position of your teeth. Pushing on them will not change your maxilla. Your bones are completely formed in adults and you can't change them, you can only move the teeth they the bone. This is what braces will do. See an orthodontist ASAP. ...Read more

Have habit pulling upper lip over some of bottom lip and keeping it there to make my bottom lip look smaller. Feel this exerts pressure on upper teeth/maxilla could this lead to resorption of maxilla?

No: Your habit should not cause resorption of teeth or maxilla. The one exception would be if you had an insufficient band of attached gingiva with a frenum pull which would cause gum recession and possibly loss of tooth over time. Perhaps something can be done with orthodontia to improve your facial appearance so that you no longer have to engage in that habit. Why not go for a consult to find out? ...Read more

Want clarify question asked yesterday, tongue rests on gum behind incisors but when swallowing it pushes forward and DOWNWARD on the gum behind incisors. Will this make the bone/ teeth grow downwards? If this not possible how can TADS shorten maxilla

Want clarify question asked yesterday, tongue rests on gum behind incisors but when swallowing it pushes forward and DOWNWARD on the gum behind incisors. Will this make the bone/ teeth grow downwards? If this not possible how can TADS shorten maxilla

2 questions: No, the tongue action you describe is perfectly normal. Aberrant tongue thrust can cause open bite, not closed bite. Additionally sometimes it is advisable to use Temporary Anchorage Devices as a source of anchorage to direct tooth movement. Please discuss your individual malocclusion with a fully qualified Orthodontist for information as to the best individualized treatment plan for you. ...Read more
