Braces off! Pics

Let me know your thoughts! Ok, here are some pictures from during treatment, right before deband, and after deband. The biggest difference is noticeable in the frontal face picture. Less gummy smile.

Re: 28 years old and in Damon Braces - see my progress!

Ok, here are some pictures from during treatment, right before deband, and after deband. The biggest difference is noticeable in the frontal face picture. Less gummy smile. As for the facial changes, yes, I still notice them. My face definitely looks more gaunt than it used to be, but my family tell...

Re: Braces Off - The Good and the Bad

Hi all, Just posting an update - I had posted on this thread earlier explaining I had the same problem. Well, my braces have been off for almost 4 months and I'm sorry to say my face has not gone back to normal. My temples and area under my cheekbones still look sunken and I feel that my face looks ...

So.. I have root resorption. Anyone else have it?

Yesterday, we took end of treatment x-rays as I am getting my braces off on Tuesday. I'm very excited to be getting my braces off. Unfortunately, upon looking at my x-rays, my ortho told me that it appears my front maxillary incisors and also one of the laterals have suffered from root resorption. H...

Re: 28 years old and in Damon Braces - see my progress!

Are you anticipating to have a full class 1 bite by the end of treatment? My teeth were similar to yours at the beginning, but my bite hasn't corrected as well. I don't have much room to move, so my orthodontist is anticipating that I won't be a perfect class 1. Kind of disappointed. No I don't thi...

Re: Where the heck did my front teeth go?? PICS

If it really is due to swelling, do you guys think I could resolve the issue by intruding the laterals as opposed to extruding the incisors? Or do you think the teeth are too high in my mouth so the incisors should be extruded?

Where the heck did my front teeth go?? PICS

I'm kind of freaking out. My braces are supposed to come off in a few weeks and I hate my teeth right now. Looking at older photos of my teeth from months ago, my front teeth look so much bigger and longer. Now they look way too short. I don't understand where the heck they went. I thought that when...

Re: 28 years old and in Damon Braces - see my progress!

Forgot to add a pic of my smile now. Do you think I need to move my central incisors down?

Need your input - should I move central upper incisors down?

I'm weeks away from debracing and we are just doing the final touches. We took pictures today to see what we want to change. We decided to move my canines a tiny bit up to see if that address the concerns I have with my smile arc (I feel like it is a bit too flat). I'm still thinking I might want to...

Just had another appt - we took pictures today to see what we want to change. We decided to move my canines a tiny bit up to see if that address the concerns I have with my smile arc. I'm still thinking I might want to move my front two teeth (upper maxillary central incisors) down a tiny bit. What ...

Re: Before and 22 months progress pic

Had another appt yesterday. We were going to take pictures to see what else we had left to do, but it was pretty obvious that my U1 L Maxillary Incisor (upper first front tooth on left) was a bit in front of the right one, so he made a small tweak to get that in line. The plan is to see where we are...
