Re: Ceramic vs Metal - Discolored teeth appearance

I would check to make sure what kind of ceramic brackets they are too. The brackets themselves don’t unusually stain. It’s the ligatures that do. With that being said, my other half got ceramic self lighting brackets so they were less noticeable only to find out the day of that the brackets had meta...

Re: Treatment persuaded others?

I'm looking at getting orthodontic treatment cause of my teeth are still moving somehow at 24. It's crazy. I have a co-worker who has braces and that does make it easier to take the leap. Haven't started yet though. I am concerned about treatment though, not really looking forward to being the 24 y...

Treatment persuaded others?

I’m curious if anybody out there deciding on treatment after seeing somebody else or there results? And likewise whether your journey has encouraged other to peruse treatment as well? I know a friend that ended up getting treatment after seeing her other friend straighten her teeth before her weddin...

Re: Braces before or after trip

I got mine the first time around before going away for a few weeks and was in a similar situation. My thought process was I was nervous for how they would look and my confidence with them so to me going away with them right after I got them was a chance for me to build my confidence with them when I...

Re: What would you do??

So the other day was the big day. I got my upper braces fitted as well as what appears to be a make shift pendulum appliance. It looks a bit different from a google search the way some of the springs are to help rotate. Man oh man is this appliance intense. It makes my whole mouth feel so extremely ...

Re: What would you do??

So I know it’s been a while and have a bit of an update on my situation. I’ve been wearing the appliance for almost 3 months with slight adjustments being made to help make some corrections. I went in 2 weeks ago and did not have much movement since the previous appointment despite all the adjustmen...

Re: What would you do??

So after booking a few more consultations and finding an ortho I really did like I settled on one who really seemed to feel for my concerns and inevitably stated that my issues that I was concerned about should be corrected as they could lean to bigger potential issues down the line. I expressed my ...

Re: Smile Direct Club

A friend of mine tried it out and after doing the impressions and never hearing back or getting any update from the company or anything over a few months finally reached somebody. They came up with the plan and sent her the aligners. Apparently she said they did fit really well and continued to wear...

Re: What would you do??

So went and got 2 other consults and both were pretty similar. They both said I would just be treated as a new patient and correct my concerns from there. Both stated that there are some issues that need to be corrected. It’s tough because I finished treatment with the assumption everything was exac...

What would you do??

So a quick backstory. Finished Invisalign treatment about about 9 months ago and was pretty happy with the results. Since then I’ve realized I think there is a slight gap between the tips of my front teeth and not completely satisfied with my upper arch as it is not completely round. I called my doc...

Re: clear or metal?

When I had ceramics they were pretty discreet at first as I was pretty self conscious and honestly didn’t want anyone to know but what are you gonna do. By like the third month in I had a thick metal wire. Metal ties around the brackets and the brackets were all laced together so it was basically al...

Total Frustration

So about just under a year ago my girlfriend decided to take the plunge and get braces a few months after me as she noticed how quickly time was going bye and liked the changes my smile was making. She is super self conscience and wanted Invisalign but the ortho said it wouldn’t be the best idea due...

Final results??

So this is my final result after 24 trays. I have a few concerns where I'm not sure if I'm being crazy about some or just trying to get as close to perfection as possible. -First is I seem to have developed a cross bite as time had gone on. My front teeth used to align perfectly with the middle of t...
