Re: What was your primary reason for orthodontic treatment?

Mine is functional and appearance. I need to have a implant put in on my front tooth. I need braces to make room for the implant. Braces on there own would have given me a sunken in look on my face so I am also having jaw surgery to correct my overbite.

Re: What is your number?

12 months then I will have my jaw surgery. Then hopefully just 6 months after that.

Hi Spring1onu. Thank you for the welcome.

Re: Pontics on Braces While Awaiting Implants...

Hi I am going through something similar.

I have a crown on my left front tooth that has a bracket attached. Not sure of the terminology but I have a tooth bonded to the crown that is the shape of a tooth. I do not have a bracket on it though. The wire goes over the top.
