Re: Hurting first time in 5 months. Pics Progression!

thank you. but my 2 front teeth seems to be off a little and my midline is a little off as well.
hope the ortho plans to correct it.

my ortho is a really quiet guy, he hardly speaks but he does a great job at it so no complains.

Re: Extraction gaps

Well it all depends. I had upper 2 extractions and couple of months down another 2 bottoms. I believe your ortho knows his stuff so don't worry about it! Usually straightening and getting the tooth in line w the arch is done before closing up some of the gaps. Followed by fine tuning before debracin...

Re: Confess your orthodontic sins.

I chew gum
I eat pizza (with the crust)

Basically theres only 2 things I dont eat.
1. Whole Apples
2. Nuts

these 2 makes it absolutely annoying, not worth the hassle.

Hurting first time in 5 months. Pics Progression!

Hi all fellow brace-faced! I've been quietly following the various threads and see other's progression. Always thrills me to see fellow brace-faced getting huge progressions. Went to the ortho today, he placed some springs and permanent non-removable rubber bands to pull my premolar and molar space ...

Re: Braces then implants instead of closing extraction gaps?

Like you I had my top 2 bicupods removed. Gonna get braced tomorrow ^^

Just like most of us, I was concerned with the removal of tooth. My ortho assures me my face profile would not be sunken as he will bring forward the molars and bring in my huge overbite.
Have a little faith!
