What do you mean a huge difference, have the teeth moved or the bite fixed? As I said I have no under over or cross bite!

Elastics not doing anything

Hi, I have class three elastics for the last month perhaps. They don't seem to do anything. I know they are to correct a bite- does this mean that the movement is not visible? Also, why have I class three and no underbite? I have never had an underbite. I posted before thinking that maybe the gaps b...

I had my two upper first premolars extracted. My canines were pushed back into the spaces and it appears the rest is closing by pulling the 2nd molars foward. They did spread out the teeth as my were overcrowded but it doesnt look like everything (bar my protrudign canines) were pushed back. I am 19...

I thought you were supposed to keep them in. I was told they wont work if you don't wear them all the time. If I take them out going on lunch it would be 45 mins until Im back in the office to brush and replace them. Then add in breakfast dinner and any snack it could add up. I think my mouth must b...

Eating my elastics

I have an elastic on each side, class III I think, from mu upper molar to my lower canine. The problem is I keep eating them! It is always the one on the left as well. Problem is I forgot spares once or twice (or ended up eating one, replacing it and eating it again on lunch!) Will this affect my tr...

Hi all thanks for the replies. I went to the ortho today, they clipped in the two clips and then banded the down with wire. Its probably good I went as maybe there was a problem with them since they bth popped out and were beside each other.

I see.. my powerchains are gone, but he put a tiny one where I have a gap so maybe thats what he meant- we are using the elastics, and will talk about debonding if the gaps are closed, not meaning the two are related. So what is the purpose these elastics? I have no over/underbite but I have noticed...

Just two, one on each side. The are attached to my lower canines to my molar (upper). Don't know if it has a name, but it is the second tooth back after my uppr canines (bear in mind I lost the first premolars!) so I think it is the first molar??? I need to pull the molars forward a bit as I have ga...
