Can anything be done to open up a bite? Feel hopeless

I've been waiting for my bite to open up. And it has opened up somewhat, but still not enough to where it's comfortable. Still can't kiss because my bottom teeth are too high. I have them shaved down 1 mm, and my ortho is working on intruding but I'm starting to lose hope because I'm not feeling the...

Reversing damage that invisalign did to my bite

Invisalign messed up my bite terribly. My new ortho is trying to fix it with regular braces. We are having a bit of trouble intruding the anteriors. Can anterior teeth be filed down as opposed to intruding them? Has anyone had this done or heard of it?

Can teeth be filed down vs. intruding them?

I've been having intruding done on my anteriors, but the problem is, the more he intrudes them the more I hit on my posterior teeth and it's super painful. Can teeth be filed down instead of intruding?

How can you lower bottom teeth. Help!

My bottom lower teeth are too high to the point where it's hard for me to kiss. How can the bottom arch be lowered? Is intruding teeth the only option? Please help.

How stable is IPR?

I'm getting IPR for an edge to edge bite. I'm getting my teeth moved back 2 mm. Am I bound to relapse or is IPR stable?

Invisalign ruined my bite...I don't understand what happened

Since I had Invisalign my bite has gotten worse. I can't even kiss anymore. My top and bottom teeth meet close together and my tongue doesn't have any space to get through to kiss. How can space be created in my mouth so I'm able to kiss again? Will intruding the teeth help? My bottom teeth feel too...

TADs to intrude teeth?

Re: Is it possible to intrude top and bottom teeth with brac

I'm curious why you guys are intruding your teeth. Isn't this essentially shortening them, which is the same as a collapsing the bite? I'm just curious why you'd purposely do this? Is it common in ortho treatment? My teeth have to be intruded because when I had invisalign it messed up my bite, my t...

How long does he think it's going to take to intrude your lowers and do you notice you have more tongue space? Please keep me updated with your case it's somewhat similar to mine.

Re: Braces after a breakup

What this board needs to understand is that people don't care about braces as much as some of you think. Reading posts on here you'd think it's an absolutely catastrophic ordeal socially when it's not. Your friends, family, and potential lovers aren't gonna care if you're braced. That's not just wis...

Re: Braces after a breakup

I have braces and still get lots of attention, every guy has a crush on me at work, and I met and fell in love with someone with braces on. I'm just glad that I didn't let braces stop me socially.

How long did it take for you to notice a difference? How is your ortho intruding your teeth? Thanks for your reply!
