Well, my ortho said that it wasn't possible to get my midline perfect because of the way they had to move my teeth to make my bite correct. My jaws aren't perfectly aligned, but he can't fix that because my bones are already developed. You can't do as much to your teeth when you are older. He said i...

I noticed the same thing with my teeth! My ortho told me that my jaws weren't aligned perfectly, but since my bones are already grown and everything, he couldn't fix it.

I just got back from my ortho appointment. I told him about my concerns, and he said that my midline is off because of the way they had to move my teeth to make my bite good. Since my bones are already developed, they can't fix it. If I was like 7 years old, they could fix it with head gear or somet...

Yeah, we pretty much had to start over when I got the bottom braces put on.

Thanks. Haha, it took 3 years because originally I only had top braces on, but my ortho decided that he couldn't do it with only the top braces so I had to get bottom braces on. I didn't have that many problems with my teeth. I had a slight overbite and my top teeth were at different levels. Some we...

Thanks. Do you think my teeth looked better before the braces?

And no, they didn't cut the gum.

Thanks!

My braces were on for about 3 years.

Oh my gosh, and I just realized that my midline is off now! What do I do? And I noticed when I bite down my left front teeth are forward more than the right ones. I can see more space between my top and bottom teeth on the left when I bite down.

I have no idea if it can be fixed with braces...I mean there is only so much that the teeth can be pulled down. I have looked into bonding and veneers, but my dentist, who is a cosmetic dentist also, said I shouldn't get either done because my natural teeth are so nice. He said they would ruin my te...

I actually have Hawley retainers, so that isn't a problem.

Thanks! I was just looking at the paper that I got after my consultation with my ortho in the beginning, and under "Diagnosis" it says "Abnormal upper soft tissue attachment." That must be referring to the frenum, right? Oh, and you know what's weird? I never got after pictures taken at my ortho, bu...
