Re: Bikerchick85's Quest for a Perfect Smile *With Pics!*

Your teeth look great! Seeing your pictures eases my anxiety about getting teeth extracted for braces (that is ...if that is still an option in my case).

Re: Have a brace date but still trying to decide.

My case/issue sounds a little bit like yours. I have a slight under bite, but once the bottom teeth are strengthened, it will create a worse under bite. Surgery was recommended for me. Another ortho who has not seen my x-rays (yet) recommend to remove two teeth at the bottom to correct the underbite...

Re: Putting my braces on hold

Ok,so it has been a long time since I have been on this forum. I thought I would have braces by now. On April 1, 2014, I had an appointment to get my braces put on.

Re: Edge to Edge Bite - Surgery?

How many consultations have you had? I don't know much about this because I just started the process. I have an under bite (to me it is a very slight under bite) and the 1st orthodontist that I went to mentioned surgery, but stated that the problem could be fixed my removing two teeth (although ther...

Re: Am I making the right decision?

I had my second consultation today and I'm still confused about which orthodontist that I want to choose. This orthodontist was very nice and he confirmed what the 1st ortho said initially. The 1st one recommended that I have two teeth at the bottom removed to correct my under bite (I had two teeth ...

Re: 6 month smiles, not going well!

Thanks for responding DaisySmith. I understand now. I think I do need work on my bit so I don't think it would be a good option for me.

Putting my braces on hold

I was suppose to get braces last Thursday, but I decided that I needed to slow down a bit and evaluate everything. I have another consultation coming up this Thursday. Getting a second consultation will ease my mind. I also went to see my dentist last Wednesday because I have a crown that has been g...
