Re: My braces story at 24 yrs old!

The ortho did say I could keep the tooth but it would take "much longer" to get everything to fit.... not sure if that would have worked but we both thought the arch was wide enough without it. And my top arch needs to be a bit larger so no point making the bottom arch too large.

How did your ortho find the space to get all your bottom front teeth in line? Amazing progress!
Good question, because I didn't mention I chose to have one tooth pulled ! I'll post photos.

Re: My braces story at 24 yrs old!

Patience is so hard. I am 3 days in fully braced and I am constantly looking for the changes already haha. I can't wait to see your photos! Hopefully you'll see some changes pretty quickly :) I haven't updated in a while. Major developments have been: - Top midline was very off and they have been t...

Re: My braces story at 24 yrs old!

Excellent progress Aussie especially in your top arch. And the teeth that are attached to your archwire at the bottom are also coming into line nicely. Finding space to join those instanding teeth to the archwire looks like a bit of a challenge. Is the metal arch inside your teeth an expansion devi...

Re: My braces story at 24 yrs old!

Progress pics. Things are moving along...still not enough room for those two blocked out teeth on the bottom. And my top midline is off by a lot so they're trying to fix that now...

Re: My braces story at 24 yrs old!

Month 4 progress. Brackets on two front teeth were re-positioned to push them up and make them shorter. The ortho filed down the front teeth a bit and next time will do some more so that they match each other.

Re: Rockin' the Braces Again at 32

I'm curious - is it possible for the molars to intrude whilst molar bands are attached. It seems in your photos that you have molar bands? I just wonder if they prevent the molars intruding .... my molar bands are right up against my gums. What do you think?
