Re: 51 - Braces first time.

Went to my new Ortho today because my bracket was broken. She stopped me wearing my elastics. I only wore them 4 days. Took out my lower archwire. And said that she had no idea what to do. Even she is experienced since years. My former, former Otho didnt start right. She only would recommend surgery...

Re: 51 - Braces first time.

Hi all. I am not so often here any more. Things are slowed down. And my treatment is more or less out of control. For the last 5 weeks I had no archwire in my lower arch. That was because my lower arch shifted more and more forward. Creating a underbite. Now a very thin 0.14 wire again. Blocked liga...

Re: 51 - Braces first time.

Long time since I last posted. I've been in treatment for 22 months now.
A bit frustrated, I'm afraid. Not much is happening. Enclosed is a photo.
Last row: left November 2018 / right January 2020. There is hardly any difference for me 🙈.
It will be a long journey...

Re: 51 - Braces first time.

Changed my orthodontist after 13 months. Before I could start with my new one I had to finish the treatment with my previous doctor. Brackets down and 3 weeks ago I have new brackets up and since today down. So everything starts all over again. Treatment time instead of 18 months there will be at le...

Re: 51 - Braces first time.

Karla andJethro than you for your reply! and As already posted I had problems with my jaw joint, tinnitus and strong tension in the neck area. CMD in other words. I then got brackets in the lower jaw and extracted a lower incisor. When the crowding disintegrated and the canines were slowly lined up,...

Re: 51 - Braces first time.

I've been in treatment for 11 months now. And the last ones were very eventful for me. Less that a lot has happened to my teeth. I tried to find something about my case. And not much found. So that suddenly the lower jaw slides forward and a class 3 develops. But suddenly my jaw joint problem was go...

Re: 51 - Braces first time.

Sorry you're having pain, but the pictures show a lot of process. Yes, of course younger right. And of course it needs more time. Lowers don’t look that bad. Uppers must move over the lowers. That need some work and build ionic my incisors. And lower teeth need to form round more and tip back a bit...

Re: 51 - Braces first time.

Today was the day. I am fully braced. Top ones also ceramic. But not really to hide. No pain yet. But I am sure it will come on one teeth or the others.

Re: First-time Braces, 30

As more or less ever body from us having braces the first days are difficult. But you will get used to. Mostly. Good luck and keep us updated.
