Re: Unsuccessful Surgery - Need Advice

Just wanted to give an update. I spoke with my surgeon again and he says he will fix it. I am unsure what I am going to do but we'll see what my insurance says first and then I will make a decision. Thank you all for your responses and giving me the encouragement to seek a solution. I'm curious is ...

Re: bone graft after braces?

Are you guys referring to treating a black triangle?
From what I was told by my perio, it could not be reversed.

Re: Good news!

[quote="trisportgirl"]I had another adjustment on Friday, and while I was in, I asked my ortho about switching to invisalign to finish my treatment, because he had mentioned this was a possibility during my initial consultation. His response was so much better - he said rather than finish my treatme...

Re: Recession/black triangle/filling during or after treatme

[quote="Stephskare"]They have always bothered me. My original ortho, back when I had traditional braces, said they couldn't be fixed because my teeth are really rounded at the gun line so they will never close the gaps. Or if they did close the gaps by pushing the top of my teeth together then the b...

Re: Recession/black triangle/filling during or after treatme

[quote="Stephskare"]Hi there. I'm sorry to hear your having trouble. This might seem silly to ask but when you say recession you mean your gums moving up and black triangles are the gaps in between the teeth due to recession right? Anywho I also have black triangles In between my four front teeth bu...

Recession/black triangle/filling during or after treatment

I started my treatment almost one year ago. Unfortunately, I am having both recession and black triangles. I guess I will have to do a gum graft and some bonding after my treatment is completed. I am also planning to get my filling changed to tooth color composite. I am wondering did any of you do a...

Re: Bone loss / black triangle caused by ortho treatment

TumbleDryLow, thanks for your comments! I had discussed with my ortho about the black triangles and was assured that they can be closed with IPR. Now it doesn't look like they can be completely closed... Regarding to the bonding you had, was it something like the below? They are Youtube links but I ...

Bone loss / black triangle caused by ortho treatment

Hi guys, My first post here! I've read many posts about patients having Bone loss / black triangle during or after their ortho treatment, and I'm one of them. I'm wearing invisalign myself (for 7 months now) but I'd believe this could also happen to patients who wear fixed braces. From what I've rea...
