Re: Scouring this website for a braces case that is as bad as mine seems...

I have overjet thats pretty deep, not sure on measurements as i had my last ortho appointment 2 years ago...long story! I also habe overbite, which im sure is partly due to not being able to clench teeth at the back as the teeth seem to lean inward. Also have top narrow arch, on one side the tooth b...

Scouring this website for a braces case that is as bad as mine seems...

I have been all around this site to see if there is anyone who has an overbite, overjet as bad as mine, I have even scoured google too! Either this is because my teeth arent as bad as i think they look or my case is that bad! I will post pictures as soon as I have had my braces put on, as they make ...

Re: I chickened out 2 years ago, gotta do this!

Thanks everybody for the encouragement! I've been to register with a second ortho, I think the least i can do is to get another opinion, especially when extractions are on the table. I worry that my top palette is narrow in the first place, so extracting up the top is going to resort in a narrow smi...

Re: Finally about to get braces at 19 years old...!

I'm due to see my ortho in about 5 weeks time, I need to get a letter from him to give to my dentist to extract so I don't have a date yet! Fingers crossed it's soon, I really don't want to wait long and end up scaring myself out of it! Scary on one hand but the other, it's very exciting! I want to ...

Re: 7 days left of eating whatever I want... LOL

I can't wait for mine to go on. It's hard to see how I'm going to cope without being able to eat normal food though as I'm underweight at the moment, I can't afford to lose weight! Thinking of buying protein shakes haha.

Re: teeth extraction for mouth protrustion

Your best bet would be to ask the orthodontist about your profile. If they aren't very informative you should probably get another opinion. A good orthodontist will give you all the details and it will help you make an informed decision about what you want and how to achieve it :)

Re: Finally about to get braces at 19 years old...!

Congrats on starting your journey!
I wish my mum had gotten me braces as a kid, and coming from the UK she has no excuse why she couldn't. It's free on the NHS! So here I am 32 years old finally getting them done at nearly 4k cost.

Re: I chickened out 2 years ago, gotta do this!

Thanks Claribeary, I saw your post and yours look amazing, I'm pretty sure I chose the same brace type as you. I am gonna wait a few weeks and get a few different pics cos when I get my braces it's gonna be one of those posts you see that there is a massive difference between before and after and it...

I chickened out 2 years ago, gotta do this!

:cry: I can't believe it's been 2 years since I was here, all geared up and ready to go with getting a brace on. I was and still am terrified about getting the 4 extractions done that I need doing before I get the braces. I am worried that again, I won't do it! If I had it done when I first went for...

Re: 8MM Overjet - Options?

I have probably worse overjet than you. My ortho told me if I want perfect then I would have to have jaw surgery, but as soon as I stepped into his room, he asked me what did I want from treatment? I said to him I want better, I dont expect perfection just no longer a nasty crowded mouth with a narr...

30yo finally on the road to getting braces

I have been contemplating all my life to get braces. It was obvious as a kid that I needed them badly, yet my mother did nothing. I had never been to the dentist until 3 months ago, I then asked my dentist to refer me. I could have gotten braces on the NHS as its such a state in my mouth, but i opte...
