So here we are a long time since I'd posted last. My work work schedule has been wonky for a while so larger times between appointments and I wasn't very happy with what the ortho stated was the finished product I'm living in another state and took my younger son to an orthodontist that uses the smartclip brackets too. Decided to have a consult and see his thoughts... Well behold, my concerns were what he pointed out and he felt good he could fix things properly.

So tonight I sit here with newly installed bite turbos on the back of my front teeth. Not liking it too much but am more than willing if it'll help the still deep/overbite and get my lower molars uprighted properly!

This guy seems to LOVE the detailing stage and is admittedly nit picky! I'm thrilled with that since the other guy seemed more concerned with quantity than quality. The new ortho was super in-depth and explained everything, I loved the time he spent with us for my son and am not too bummed about paying him to finish what I already had paid off with the old guy.

Well that's it for now, I'm really interested to see how this will go!

Smile y'all! :tingrin:

Sorry I wasn't clear enough. Still in them, yes 4 years now because of a combination of my unhappiness with the supposed final result and working in another state, coming back to visit my family and getting tweaks. Now that my family has moved and we found a SAVVY ortho, I've decided to transfer.

These bite turbos are really messing with my mind. I've had quite a few experiences with orthodontic stuff, but this is a first!

Cheers :tingrin:

Thanks for the clarification! 4 years! :yikes:

I'm aiming for 1 year and it seems like an eternity. Crossing my fingers that this new ortho will do the job for you.

The time doesn't really bother me as I actually hate retainers more than braces! I feel confident this guy will get it closer to right and what I think is good. :tingrin:
