Very strange call, I would say... They usually put molar buildups or a front bite plane to avoid damage to front teeth.
I agree with this why would they remove the lowers when they can use molar build ups or bite plane instead of removing and stalling progress.

Re: Damon braces first few days

Personally when I first got braces back in my younger days I went in and got braces, went into work that very same day hours later to work.

Re: Tim's Treatment NEW PICS ::: UPDATED PLEASE READ 03/11 :::

UPDATE I haven't updated in a while and thought that it would be time to post another update of my second time around in braces. I went back into braces for the second time on August 06, 2018 and haven't had to much pain/discomfort in the short 5 months that I've had them back on already. I do reca...

Re: Would insurance cover braces and not surgery?

Depends on how the insurance company sees it. My son is going through speech therapy and insurance denied his claim saying it's not Medically Necessary even though he has difficulties and is Autistic

Re: Molar Rotation

Gotcha they didnt really go to much over my case so I'm trying to plan accordingly if I need elastics if I'll need extra hardware etc. Hoping 2019 ill be able to afford the implant or implants they havent said if they are keeping the extraction site upper open for implant or closing it

Re: Would insurance cover braces and not surgery?

I could be wrong but who knows I personally don't think they will cover it unless it's 'Medically Necessary'. I know with my own insurance they will not cover it unless 'Medically Necessary' however they covered up to 1,500 for my braces.

Re: Molar Rotation

Its tilted inwards and they are trying to tilt it back a little.

Horrible example: currently tilted inwards \ they are trying to straighten it upright |

I will eventually get a bone graft and implant for that space there but finances wont allow it atm.

Molar Rotation

Merry Christmas Y'All I hate when I'm at the Orthodontist office and they ask if I have any questions and I can't think of any but when I leave and a few days later I come up with the questions. Anyways the Orthodontist put on a bracket to my last molar on the right side and I advised them they can'...
