I got my retainer today, a permanent one on the bottom and one I can take on and off on top. I asked them, and the ortho told me that to move my top teeth back, they would have to pull two teeth from the top and two teeth from the bottom. This would move my lips back, and he said that is why he did not want to do it. He said that for every millimeter that my teeth move back, my lips move back a millimeter. They told me that I should wait until my next check up appointment in May, and if I am still not happy with how they look, we can move on to pulling the top and bottom teeth out to make room for them to move back. I am very satisfied with my teeth except for the top that sticks out slightly. Here is what they look like:
So, thoughts? What should I do? Should I go to another orthodontist and ask if there are any other ways to fix this? Or just live with it?
Thanks for all of your advice!
