Bottom teeth inward

So I had a surgical mold made for my bite, and they were certain this mold would be the last. Yet when they looked at it the bottom teeth were going inward. The bite fit it was just the right side of my bottom teeth were going inward, and they said they think it could take 3-5 “visits” aka months to...

Bite fits but still waiting 3 to 5 months for surgery

So I went to my ortho appointment today, and he took a mold and even waited to see the mold because my ortho wanted to know if it was done yet. So basically the mold does fit but my bottom teeth go inward a little bit, and he estimated a 3-5 month wait to get them to stand up straight instead of inw...

My mold looks ready.. but still holding off

So recently I viewed my mold, and the bite fit fine there were just two crooked back molars. My ortho said the surgery won’t happen this summer, because he wants the boys not to be rushed. I can’t tell him when to let me but this seems a little ridiculous. They fixed the whole side of my crooked bit...

Ortho trying to make me change Oral Surgeon

So recently I’ve posted about how my ortho said to adjust the one side of my mouth would be 3-4 months. I had a surgery date for June, and when I asked him if I could make it then he said he would try. Once my 3 adjustment came along he told me only had one back molar to adjust, so when I asked abou...

Ortho changing treatment plans and being difficult

So I’m about a little over a year into my one year treatment for my oral surgery. I’m suppose to be in braces two years afterwards. The problem I am having is it seems as if my orthodontist isn’t being considerate. Currently with the most recent mold he told me there was only a few back molars to ad...

Space between teeth in an hour after adjustment

So there was a gap between my two lower front teeth, and one of my orthodontist said it could’ve be closed until after surgery, but for some reason today another ortho said he was just gonna close it. I’m not sure what he did but the pain is excruciating, and it seems as if the gap did close right a...

Who should have more say oral surgeon or ortho?

So my ortho looked at my recent mold and said he only had one back molar to adjust, and my bite should be ready... but I had a tracing appointment with my surgeon this month, and he told me basically not to go because “oral surgeons tend to rush things and he wants everything to be perfect”. Honestl...

Ortho said only one more tooth to adjust but hold off on tracings

My ortho had taken a mold about 3-4 weeks ago of my progress and today I called to find out about it, because I had surgical tracings scheduled for this month and needed to know if it be possible to have them with some missdjusted teeth. My ortho told me my bite made allot of progress and he only ha...

How many surgical molds did you have taken before surgery?

Molds are a pain in the a$$ honestly. My ortho told me they would probably take a few before surgery because they’ll never know when the bite will be ready. I’m on my third one so far. How many did you guys have before surgery :)

Re: How long would it take to straighten out one side of teeth?

Thank you so much for your response! I’m sorry your treatment is taking longer than expected as well. I hope it comes together for you soon or that they give you the surgery soon. I honestly think if most of the problems are caused by molacluson it would work better if they did surgery first than te...

Re: How long would it take to straighten out one side of teeth?

Do you have any idea why the one side is having trouble adjusting? Is it just resistant or is that a sign they did something wrong? I am really hoping that I can get this surgery ASAP my TMJ has gotten so much worse the pain even goes into my ear now it’s a sharp pain along with my jaw. Although I c...

How long would it take to straighten out one side of teeth?

So I know no one can give me an exact time or anything, but just asking for some perspectives. I got a surgical mold done a month ago and one side of the mold my teeth fit, and the other side did not fit at all my ortho said it could take 3-4 adjustments, but I just don’t think it’s accurate, becaus...

Why didn’t my mold fit?

I’ve shown allot of frustration on this board since the beginning of my treatment, because waiting on jaw surgery has been very difficult for me mentally. They finally made the mold on my teeth and the one side of my mouth the mold fits, and the other side doesn’t fit at all. I’m wondering why that ...

Most painful adjustment one year into treatment

I’m about 1 year into orthodontic treatment I’m suppose to be getting jaw surgery, but one side of my mold didn’t fit so they said I would need 3-4 more adjustments as an estimate. The adjustment they gave me that day was the most painful one I ever had. I couldn’t even chew it was giving me sharp h...
