Not Sure if I Need Braces
Question: My teeth are yellowish and my eye teeth are very pointy and slightly crooked. Also about a year ago I lost a tooth which I did not really mind since it had a black spot on it. The thing is now I have a gap that is in the back of my mouth. Do you think braces will fix this or do I need to have them pulled?
Reply: You will need to consult a dentist. Often time dental offices provides for a free consult if you are a new patient. Braces should be able to correct the crooked teeth issues, yet it also sounds as if you may be in need of more then braces to fix the dental issues you stated you are having.
You can save money on your dental care by having a dental insurance plan in place before hand. Since you are in need of major dental care services I would advise to make sure you are either looking at a PPO that dose not have plan waiting periods or an HMO plan that typically do not have waiting periods. This would be important in receiving the dental care that your currently may need.
