Re: Being Refused Braces Due To Irreparable Damaged Teeth

I can understand how mad you are. I would do the sameness thing you did. However, your orthodontist said to find another’s specialist. You can see other orthodontists and i’m almost positive at least one will put braces on you. Heck my orthodontist grinded my enamel down to fix my bite in some place...

terrible bite/ wisdom teeth

I had my braces off about a year and a half ago. My bite wasn’t very good. They ended up grinding parts of most of my bottom teeth which i’m Not very happy about. Every time they grind something, it’s better for about a week and then it goes back to normal, with my front teeth hitting hard, and my m...

Re: I barely eat after putting permanent retainers

My ortho insisted on putting permanent top and bottom but I refused. That was over a year ago and have no signs of relapse. If I were you, I would call your ortho and get it off.

Re: Retainer question

+1 on the 24/7. I have Essix. Wore them 24/7 for I think 3 months? Now just at nighttime. My teeth have stabilized.

Re: Bracket come off on Christmas Day!

When my back bracket came off, I slid the bracket off the back and cut the wire with some side cutters, as instructed by my ortho. He put a new wire in at my next appointment.

Re: bite turbo lisp: where does my tongue go for s sound?

I had them in the exact same spot as you, and I had a lisp for a couple of days. My tongue developed 2 spots where the turbos pressed against, but they went away after they were taken off. I got over the lisp pretty quickly and you should too. Actually, I had more trouble talking normally when I got...

Re: Decision time - Damon clear vs. Damon metal?

My top 6 were clear. They didn’t stain but the white powerchains did. *the clear ones are also a lot harder to get off. They hurt quite a bit because they kept crumbling when my ortho was trying to take them off.

Re: Bite Stoppers

Mine were behind my upper 2 front teeth. They came off less than halfway through treatment. They are to prevent you from damaging your braces.

Re: Can retainers shift teeth negatively?

Mine are essix retainers too. I just don’t understand why they do this. My orthodontist even had me not wear any retainers at all before making the impressions so it should have been made accurate to how my bite had settled. I’m tired of feeling like my teeth don’t belong in my mouth. It’s like the...

Re: Cavities with braces??

I'm not so sure about that, but of course I am not a dentist. I had a little spot with decay between my rear molars and my ortho and dentist both said they would wait until after treatment before doing any dental work. They’re still watching it because it’s hasn’t gone to the root so that’s probabl...

They would most likely wait for your braces to come off before they did any fillings. I'm not so sure about that, but of course I am not a dentist.

Re: Extraction gap closing slowly and do I have bone loss?

It doesn’t look like you have much bone loss, just some mild recession. It’s the shape of your teeth. They’re thinner at the bottom, like mine. My orthodontist did some IPR and made it a little better. Munch black triangles are very very small now. I would ask about it Thanks for your reply The too...

Re: Dental Assistant Skill

I had a bad experience while getting braces on. The assistant was grinding my ceramic brackets down with the drill and her hand slipped and gashed my gums right above that tooth and my god did it bleed. She told me I shouldn’t jump like that. I only jumped because you sliced my gums!
