Re: Hawley to extrude front central incisors

hey dj, thanks! I have since gotten the new Hawley and gotta tell you, I love it. I much prefer it over the Essix. What my ortho did was put little tooth colored build ups on the front of my teeth and then the wire on the Hawley goes above those build ups and pushes down slightly. This has had the d...

Re: The dreaded "Black Triangles"

Hawley to extrude front central incisors

Haven't been on here since my braces came off about a year ago! Have been loving my smile and never regretted getting braces, even though they took over a year longer than planned (total 3 yrs). My front centrals that were originally retroverted would just love to go back into place though and I'm v...

Re: Weird numbness after debracing

Thank you so much! That sounds very likely that that could be the problem! I'll let ortho know too. Relieved that you don't think enamel was damaged either!

Weird numbness after debracing

I had my braces removed beginning of August and my ortho did the usual cleaning off of the glue (there wasn't much, I don't think) with that special tool that he asssured me wouldn't damage enamel, but I'm still, 2 mos later, feeling like my front teeth are sort of numb. I'm wearing my retainer nigh...

Re: Hawley vs Essix Your preference

when you get a Hawley, does it consist of a piece for the top and a piece for the bottom? I've never seen a bottom Hawley, so I just don't know. Can any Hawley wearer's tell me? thanks!

Re: Second to last adjustment and front teeth have moved

Wow! Your post could've been written by me, I'm in exactly the same boat as you. I'm also at my second to (hopefully) last adjustment and suddenly my front central incisor is shorter than it was before my adjustment last week! It was shorter by the time I got home from the appt and boy, was I sort o...
