Re: Extractions due to protruding gum, teeth, and mouth.

Re: Not happy with the end result of braces

He also told me that he was getting off my braces next time and I was not happy at all. I told him what bothered me and he told me that he will fix them. I am really waiting to see what happens and maybe if he doesn´t fix it i will take a second opinion. I have spent too much time and money to not b...

Re: Day 1 - don't think I can do this!!

It will get better. 2 or 3 weeks were really difficult for me but everyone is different. I have them for 2 years and I couldn't care less. They are not even there for me.
In the first weeks the feeling that I had is as my mouth was constantly exercising.

Re: Extraction of bicuspids and benefits on the profile

no i don´t have elastics.
i have powerchains. the powerchain was first used to retract the canines and now is used (single or double) to close the gaps between the canines and incisors and to retract the incisors back.

Re: How fast do class II elastics move your teeth?

it depends. my bottom extraction gaps closed together, i had my upper extractions a few months after and expected to happen the same. when the left gap was completely closed, i could fit my tongue in the other gap. if your ortho that treats you can't give you an answer, i guess nobody can. just live...
