It's been one of the hardest things I've gone through but when I see this pi...

Re: Bicupid Reversal

No one wanted to do a reversal for me either. How many orthodontists have you seen so far? Many doctors didn't even want to put me in braces or recommend me for jaw surgery. I honestly think they're very uneducated or have not had recent training. Luckily, I found a doctor who understood me. I think...

Lip incompetence, elastics and some questions

Previously my lip incompetence had improved with combo extractions and elastics. Long story short: I didn't wear my retainer and my teeth went their ways. Currently in my second round for 8 months with a new orthodontist. I see that my lip incompetence has worsened by a lot. Though I am getting elas...

Re: How did rubber bands change your bite and smile?

:tingrin: In my case I've had elastics for the same amount of time that I've had braces, almost 16 months. They fixed a crossbite at first, brought my canines down, helped to fix my midlines, and now I'm back to 1 elastic on my left side to fix a crossbite again. I'm hoping to soon be done with ela...
