Re: How do I know if my potential orthodontist is good / bad?

Thanks for your input all.

I am in the UK, London specifically, does anyone know of the correct professional board to check?

Re: How do I know if my potential orthodontist is good / bad?

Oh gosh, that sounds stressful!

I have what the ortho called a "scissor bite" on one side and my upper lateral incisors are not entirely straight which bothers me each time I look in the mirror.

Ortho has said he can correct these within 3-4 months....sounds reasonable but now I am not so sure!

How do I know if my potential orthodontist is good / bad?

I am considering having braces put back on after they came off 4 months ago. There are a few 'minor issues' as my new orthodontist calls them which were there when the last orthodontist took the braces off. Since then, my orthodontist has sold the practice and there is a new owner who will put them ...

Retainer bar has come loose

Hi all, The fixed retainer bar on the back of my top of my teeth has come loose at one end, so is not attached to the last tooth. I have an ortho appointment in 2 weeks, do you think it will be ok to wait until then or will my teeth move in that time? I am still wearing a retainer at night. Thanks

Re: Any orthodontists on here? Need some advice!

Hi there, thanks for your reply, really appreciate your input. The lack of trust is mainly due to the fact that the bite was like that when the braces were taken off, those pictures were actually taken on the day they were removed. I wasn't aware the bite wasn't correct until they were taken off but...

Any orthodontists on here? Need some advice!

Hi all, So I had my braces removed last week and I am very unhappy with the bite, it is way off on both sides. Please see pics: https://ibb.co/geH6v9 https://ibb.co/hdGVoU I went to get my retainer yesterday and brought it up, my orthodontist said that this happens sometimes and is what they call 'b...

Re: Are my teeth straight?

Looking at that video, my bite is way off all over!

Think I may have a battle on my hands here, surely no decent orthodontist would take the braces off with a bite like this!

Re: Are my teeth straight?

No they aren't touching the gums but the teeth are clashing. Don't see how that can be good for the teeth in the long run?

Re: Are my teeth straight?

In addition, my bottom front teeth hit the inside of my top front teeth when I eat. I think this is because the bottom teeth are flared. What a mess!

Re: Are my teeth straight?

That is my natural bite yes and wasn't like this before braces. It was like that with braces on but I had bite blocks on my teeth so thought it was to do with that. So the orthodontist took my braces off, knowing my bite was like that, why would he do that?? I'm going to get my retainer this week so...

Re: Are my teeth straight?

So this is my bite on one side, tell me that's not completely f*cked.. excuse my French.

Can that be fixed with the retainer? I'm actually quite angry he's left me like that and thinks that's acceptable!

Re: Are my teeth straight?

They are already off!! The bite definitely isn't right but I couldn't tell that before I had them off.....very frustrating.

Re: Are my teeth straight?

Ok, thanks for your comments. I'm going to pick up my retainer next week so I will definitely mention my concerns.

I think maybe I just need to get used to my new smile, all feels very weird!

Re: Are my teeth straight?

I've changed my mind, I don't like my new teeth! I actually feel like I have a massive overbite, more than I did before and the teeth are slightly flared on, particularly on the bottom.

What do you all think please?
