Re: Third try at fixing my deep bite--This Wednesday

Good news and bad news. Dr. was politely critical of my poor compliance with my retainer orders. Solution involves no new braces :o , but instead active retainers to be worn 24/7. She showed me a sample and it looked like a Hawley with a spring built in. I can take them out to eat and yes they will ...

Re: Hi all, new here and getting my braces soon

Re: About to take the plunge...

Bite plates are good for weight loss. Suggest you eat a big stake while you can. If they let you avoid spacers they are worth it. Otherwise they are pretty miserable .

Re: considering orthodontics for the third time...is the charm?

I saw your post. Did you take the leap? I am interested to learn more about your treatment. I am dreading being put back in full braces with elastics for a third time. :cry:

Re: considering orthodontics for the third time...is the charm?

I am in a similar position. Diagnosed with mild sleep apnea in part caused by my overbite that didn't stay fully corrected. \I had no idea how hard this would be to fix till I went back to my ortho. :cry: Full braces (third time) with elastics for 18-24 months. I am over 50 and don't look forward to...
