Re: Got a second opinion mid braces... Advice?

update. so i actually went to talk to my current dentist again and this time he really went in detail about my treatment plan and addressed my concerns. so his plan was actually already the same as the second doctor's one (i.e. closing the extraction gap by moving the back teeth to the front), he ju...

Re: Braces have given me overbite/overjet

You don't necessarily have to switch!! it's just better to see someone else to hear their opinions and give you a peace of mind! And yeah I understand the worry over braces. worrying over it have seriously made me so depressed. Sometimes I think about how i may be so carefree right now had I not st...

Re: Braces have given me overbite/overjet

I experienced similar @.@ overbite and overjet getting bigger. My bottom teeth is like 95% hidden now and a 6 mm overjet. If you're 2 years in and your bite looks like that, it is kinda concerning. Saw your post in Jan as well, and my current doctor sounds just like yours. Plus I had other concerns ...

Oh you are awesome. Thanks for researching this!

Is there a link to the Chinese forum that discusses this?
you can go to zhihu.com and search "牙套脸"

Got a second opinion mid braces... Advice?

Hi those who have seen my posts prob know that I've been experiencing various problems with my current dentist (yes he is a general dentist.. huge red flag here but I didn't know specialists existed at that point in time). So my problems before braces are slight overbite/overjet, mild crowding, no p...

Re: How long were you on Niti wires?

I had 14, 16 then 18 round niti at each of my first three adjustments. Then 18 round stainless. I had some anxiety issues with the stainless so he put back the 18 niti and now we went back to the 18 stainless this time and I'm 6 months in. It sounds like I'll be with stainless for a while as he's i...

Brackets and brackets position

In the 4th going to 5th month of braces. My first molar on the right is becoming more and more crooked (it's kinda tipping inwards). Why?? Is it because I don't have brackets on the the molar at the furthest back? Plus I noticed the brackets position on my lower front teeth are kinda off. one of the...

I've started to notice these problems... first, my midline of the top teeth is not aligned with the tip of my nose, it's towards the left a little. and the bottom is tow...

Re: Deep bite

updates? I'm wondering the same.
my dentist told me that once my extraction gap closes, my bite will automatically become normal. I have no idea how that works and I'm a little worried. He mentioned nothing about a bite plate or bite turbos.

No Wire Change?

Hey guys. Since the start of getting braces, it's been 3 months and 3 appointments. I haven't had any wire change at all. In each appointment, the only thing that is done is changing the ligature ties. Is this normal? Also before braces, I had a slight overbite, now my upper teeth completely covers ...

No pictures were taken?

I just had a read through the forum again and realised that pictures, molds and x-rays are taken by the dentist before being braced!
As far as i can remember, i only did molds and x-rays, no pictures. Is this something i have to be concerned about? anyone missed any of these before being braced?

Re: Insights to facial changes regardless of extractions

oh I forgot to mention, facial changes are much much more likely for people who already have high cheekbones. Most asians are born with high cheekbones so higher chances as well.
