I don't think implants are very common, I'd probably say they'd elect you to have it pulled, and close the space...maybe. It really all depends on what they predict we can't tell you much here.

To avoid yourself disappointment, don't expect to get them off at the lower end of the time scale, if it happens consider it a bonus. In fact, it might take longer than they quoted, but I'd look more towards the latter end of the quoted time. Save yourself the heartache when 15 months comes and goes.

I have clear braces on the top and metal on the bottom. I originally wanted invisilign. I originally told myself I would just not date and resign to two years as a geek. --- Now at the end of the process, I found that noone cares if you have braces or not. My dating has not been impacted, and in fac...

The elastics are for your bite, not closing gaps-- at least from what I know. I got my braces on about the same time as you and mine are coming off on the 17th. When they say they might be coming off in a few visits I wouldn't take much from that, only when they officially say they are coming off yo...

To the person that said they've had gaps like that close over night I think thats a gross exaggeration even for fast movement... Two months is definitely not enough time, you have to remember that as your two front teeth shift towards the middle, other gaps will be created, and even when your teeth ...

You wont find a lawyer with dental experience period. You'd have to get a lawyer, then have medical professionals testify on your behalf, so I'd looking into that if I were you. Often a lawyer will assist you with this if you have the money. Its unfortunate what happened but I don't think anyone her...

Why would you have molar bands? They are only necesary for certain problems. I think with the colors, they don't normally ask adults either, cause they assume they want the most discrete choices. I went with the first ortho I went to, either way this is how I see it: You are paying them to do a job,...

Ive had multiple dreams about really loose teeth, and teeth falling out, or cracking, it's because teeth are always on your mind.

What do you mean by you have a v-shaped jaw, and he put on a u-shaped?

I'm not sure what you mean by this, but if you were to contact a lawyer clearly your claim rests on this assumption.

I had that done, and I have to point it out to people because they don't notice otherwise. I'll smile and ask them if they notice anything odd and they never do. Personally, I look the fact theyre closer together, I personally like the look, although its subtle. Its kinda vampireish, but very subtle.

They have predictions of what they can do with your teeth, and sometimes during the treatment process things change or are not predictable. I'll be honest I think you're getting too caught up in this, it's not like theres a 90% failure rate with treatment plans... My main concerns were: Cost, Approx...

Id go with ortho two.

I don't think theres a point of only getting braces on the top. If you don't get braces on the bottom you can't fix problems with your bite.

From what I hear about this, this really only affects some people who have 6+ teeth removed.

Those who get their wisdom teeth removed, plus four biscupids?

I had my wisdom teeth and one other tooth removed and I don't feel I look different.
