Well they shouldn't. Because I've been in elastics pre and post op and they haven't been an issue.

Re: Week 1 - went back to get it taken off

You will be an absolute idiot to not continue treatment. The bite blocks won't be forever. I bet you are a blast at parties Yeah I am, cause it's different than people coming on forums having a whinge about the difficulty of braces, already going through the process of having them removed and wasti...

Re: Week 1 - went back to get it taken off

I don't think I would put it quite that way, SJM. It's easy to judge others, I suppose. To the OP,I think it's great that you went back to your ortho and had an honest conversation, and that you were able to come up with a plan that will work for both of you. All the issues you were previously faci...

Re: Bracket placement - opinions needed

I think I would take my ortho's guidance since she has the training and experience. That's not how it works around here! :lol: Haha, right? I hate when people get rude over others asking for our opinions. It's simple, if they want their orthodontist's opinion, they'll ask the orthodontist. The pers...

Re: Does this treatment plan sound reasonable?

Go get another opinion from another ortho and see if they say similar things.

We aren't a dentists here but a lot of us have had extractions, surgery, braces.... our treatment plans have been fine

Re: 28 year old fast braces

Why get fast braces? Just spend two years in normal braces, have a result that's stable.

Re: Bracket placement - opinions needed

Hi all, I've had surgery to correct my bite, but now my top teeth hit the bottom brackets. I feel that the brackets on the bottom teeth are placed too high, however, my ortho indicated that she thought it would be fixed by putting some elastics further back. What do you think? http://s14.postimg.or...

Re: Surgery in a couple days, need help on last minute plans

The surgery you are getting will not impact your cheekbones whatsoever. If you are advancing your lower jaw you will have a wider lower face not a more slim lower face.

Re: Having a wobble...

Your top lip looks a bit fuller that's all but people won't notice it after a while.

Don't let this stop you.
