I can't really tell what you are talking about, maybe have a clearer picture? It looks pretty straight to me, but if you are looking for perfection I think over time it will move a little anyway however, since you are paying a lot of money I would do what you think is best. I'll probably wait until...

Well you said it yourself, they can't see it until you tell them to carefully examine them. I guess I am not sure of the terminology of your dentist and what "piling" is so I can't really give an opinion of that - but as far as achieving perfection, I guess wanting that is reasonable when we are fo...

Satisfaction how far would you go? (w/photo)

My orthontist asked me to sign a consigment at last visit so at next appoitment she can remove my braces. But my 2 teeth did not look symmetrical to others.

i didn't have any black triangle shown in the 4 spaces (upper teeth) already. Was she predicting that I'll have black triangles within next 5 week? As for the bottom teeth, I do have a huge black triangle, this space is huge enough to view my tongue through the hole. And she did not do anything abou...

polish between teeth

My orthdontist 'polished' between my teeth with something like a sandpaper between my teeth. She went ahead and did that for about 4 spaces between teeths, and one of them she grind it down hard and my head moved into direction she was going back and forth. :evil: :evil: And then she put regular flo...

I'm also curious about what your orthodontist is specifically asking from you at this point, especially with only 3 months to go. The major movement and tooth placement is set and to undo any of that would mean many more months in treatment. The only "fixes" that come to mind are things like bondin...

Orthdontist put the metal band on your moalars and teeth behind the molarband are naked til the end.. When teeth are moving in directions, 4 naked teeth will need to follow and be...

Mine is 1/8 triangle and 3/16 between two teeth. So there's too much force,, it feels like elastics will pull my teeths out when I talk with j...
