Re: Week 1 - Unsure if I made a huge mistake!

I raised my concern regarding the damage that was done to my tooth (on the upper left, right next to front tooth) to my ortho the other day. He relented without really admitting that he had damaged that tooth with the drilling off of the glue, especially once I showed the before and after photo. He ...

Re: Week 1 - Unsure if I made a huge mistake!

No update yet. My next appt is the 19th. The attachments don't bother me - I have a ton. My tooth is was definitely drilled into incorrectly when they were trying to get the initial glue off.

Thanks! I am feeling a bit better about it today, and I know a misshapen tooth can be corrected. This is my third time with braces and I am so nervous that this time won't make a difference either. Breathing deeply for the next year and a half.
