Re: Just saying hello

Thanks for sharing your braces story, what great progress! Does the bite plate look like a retainer? Yes, it does. I still use the darn thing. He told me at the last appointment I really only need to use it overnight until I get my night guard. I’ve gradually been taking it out more and more since ...

Re: Dental Assistant Skill

I can’t say I’ve dealt with the same. My orthodontist’s assistants that I’ve dealt with are all amazing. If you’re feeling concerned, and don’t want to bring it up in the public setting, I would just ask to speak to her privately. Or maybe call and ask if you can schedule a quick meeting prior to yo...

Re: Just saying hello

Wow, what a difference! Especially at the last adjustment! So I guess this gap-closing thing isn't just a rumor that orthos made up. You must be pumped! Holy cow- the power chains are no joke! I am ecstatic!!! The bite plate he gave me has completely changed my bite, my gap is closing, and my jaw p...

Thank you for the response. Neither of us have made it that far into treatment yet so I wasn't sure. He's only on phase 1 of 2 so I wasn't sure if elastics were even part of phase 1.

Midline question

My son and I had orthodontist appointments at the same time and I missed exactly what they said about what they're doing his next appointment. They did say both of our appointments would be lengthier than normal. My son said they were doing something to activate his midline... Does anyone know what ...
