Power chains not closing gap.

I posted this post before but I wanted to get some more opinions if possible. I’ve had a gap close to the gap that has now been created that closed within a few days, and I am VERY frustrated because I have a gap in my lower two front bottom teeth that has been here for TWO months. It has closed a l...

Re: Small gap between two front lower teeth not closing

Your ortho is probably not actively trying to close the gap at the moment. As they move teeth around they need some space. Typically the small gaps are closed up with power chains towards the end of the treatment. I did not have my gaps closed until 2.5 years into a 3 year treatment. Usually once t...

Small gap between two front lower teeth not closing

I have had a gap in my lower two teeth for maybe like 3 months now, and it has closed a little but there is still a small noticeable space. I can’t fit my tongue in it anymore so that’s good but it’s still not closing! It’s really concerning/irritating because it is such a small one. I asked my orth...

Re: Mold made for my teeth but no feedback?

Hey Honey Bee, I would think the oral surgeon should be able to look at your teeth too and judge whether you're ready. Although it would be nice for you to have the direct communication regarding the process; I would also suggest having oral surgeon call orthodontist directly to ensure there is no ...

Ever since my braces have been on my bite has gotten much worse like they said it would, and I can’t ...

Re: Would insurance cover braces and not surgery?

Isn’t not being able to eat or speak medically necessary or is that not considered that?

Would insurance cover braces and not surgery?

I got full approval for my braces, but they have not sent out pre approval for my surgery yet. I’m eight months in a one year treatment. I’m going to make an appointment with my surgeon for him to send out pre approval request. My fear is of course my surgery won’t be approve and I’m left worse off ...

Not sure of the next step to pursue surgery

I signed a treatment plan that stated I would be ready for surgery within a year. I’m about 8 months in and nothing is being arranged. They haven’t made a mold yet and are saying they’re gonna make it within a year. This makes no sense because I need to know if my surgery will be approved, and my su...

Re: How long does it take gaps cause by braces to close?

[quote=assertives post_id=506206 time=1545205095 user_id=30576] Depending on how large the gaps are, I think it will close fairly quickly as in within 1 appointment cycle. Gaps do sometimes happen between teeth. I've had a few of such gaps too. They are not visible, but I certainly felt it when I fl...

How long does it take gaps cause by braces to close?

I’ve recently got a gap in my bottom teeth, and I’m wondering how long it will take it to close it’s it super huge but noticeable. It was caused by braces which is confusing because they just closed a gap from braces a few months ago... now I have another one is this normal if anyone knows?
