Im in class II on one side, so at the moment I do eat with them in. The ONLY reason I eat with them in is because I want to be wearing them 24/7. My assist, told me that how much you wear your elastic really effects your treatment time.

Sorry I forgot to add that you should tell him ASAP, that way you can decide together what things you want to finish and what things don't bother you as much. Just tell him casually, " You know how I am going abroad in September, well, I have decided that I would like an early debonding. Would that ...

I am either getting an early release in August or switching over to Invisalign. I was braced in Sept 08 also, and had an 18-24 estimate. Everyone is telling me not to do it but I have made up my mind. I never got braces for cosmetic reasons. I do want my teeth to be 100% perfect because of all the m...

I had two coil springs to make room for my canines to move forward. I don't really remember much about them because they were at the very beginning of my treatment. I do remember them not being much fun though. They are similar to pc's and elastics, in that they are a pain but eventually it will sub...

Yes I had exactly the same thing done, but on my canines instead.
If you click the "www" you can check out some pictures I posted of it there.

It worked great but was very painful!

You know what they say about things that sound too good to be true... 6 months braces just fix the visible, or "social", teeth. I think it is aimed toward those who do not have obvious bite problems. Here is a member who went through the 6 month braces process. You can check the results here: http:/...

Double up on Elastics?

Has anyone ever doubled up on their elastics...? I know it is probably really stupid and I should follow the orthos instructions but eh... I couldn't resist. I only have one elastic going from Right upper canine to Last Lower Molar. I think I may only keep it in for an hour.

Thoughts? :oops:

Yes your ortho will take x-rays during your treatment to make sure the roots are moving correctly.
