inspired and wired, you should have gotten a bite block or a bite plate like I did?

In anycase you can ring your ortho if you're concerned, which is probably a good thing before the incisor brackets wear away any of the top teeth.

Today I had my appointment after extractions. The ortho removed both the archwires from my mouth that I had had for several months, and came back with these almost black heavy duty looking things :shock: he snapped them into place. Peering over my hair, he then informed me that I was going to get sp...

Well, half an hour ago I got extractions!

The worst part was sticking ...

Noes!

I get my extractions tomorrow, I only get two premolars taken out but I'm still allowed to be scared! It's a perfectly healthy part of me that is going to be ripped out of my mouth :(

How did everyone here get over the feeling of having a part of you removed?

Over bite correction and effects on face

HI docs, I have an overbite of 5 mm that is going to be corrected by extraction of two upper teeth and then moving the upper teeth back and the lower teeth forward slightly - will this leave me with a strange looking face? :shock: has anyone had overbite corrected like this? how does your face look ...

Well I'm 16 and I have an overbite of 5 mm, and my ortho told me that my chin will probably grow a bit more, but not enough to correct my bite. To fix it, I am having two teeth from my upper jaw extracted and my top teeth will be moved back, and using springs my bottom teeth are going to be pushed f...

Having the molar bands fitted is a snap. All of my bands fitted first go, perfectly.

Personally, I've been treated with a reverse curve (of spee) archwire on my lower arch to open up my bite. Search round the forums here a bit for more on that. To stop me biting off my lower brackets, or damaging my top teeth on them until the bite is properly opened, I have bonding/cement/putty on...
