Hi xxnecraxx! Your teeth are looking good. Our crossbites are very similar and mine seem to be fixing very slowly. Its frustrating because my teeth aligned very fast but it seems like fixing the crossbite may take long. Im in elastics right now too and I go in June 26th to see if they worked! I hope...

I believe I read somewhere on here that when your teeth are properly aligned they are not supposed to touch one another when your jaw is at rest. My teeth also used to touch before and do not now and I have wondered the same question. I believe its normal though, for now anyways.

I know people here are going to criticize me for even suggesting you to ask your parent's to defray some of the cost. I've already been told, by many people here, that "you're an adult, your parent's don't owe you a damn thing!" along with the self-righteous "I paid for my own braces, you should pa...

If you become a dependent on your dads insurance, and it does cover ortho, you're typically only eligible if your 18 or below or you're 19 and in school. I was 19 when I was going through consultations and such and thought that it would work out but I turned 20 and they were like, "NOPE!". For me a ...

Sorry to hear you are in so much pain. When I first got my braces I was shocked about how much pain I was in. I thought I would never be able to eat again. I promise you it gets better. At the stage you're at now it is hard to believe that but it will happen. Try chewing through the pain. It increas...

Hi Megan, Hope your meeting went OK for ya'! Yep, it just looks like you're in one of those "gets worse before it gets better" stages. Sorry about that, but it's all part of having our braces. Sigh! It will get sorted out. Time and patience are our friendly enemy! LOL! But it does look like your ar...

No Problem Martin.
