Re: kellyb's story (belatedly)

Hey all,

Just another quickie :)
Had an adjustment on Saturday 18 May. Basically the ortho is now working on pulling down the tooth by the last 0.5mm. He has said that if it looks ok I will be debraced at my next appointment which is on 15 June. Will keep you posted.

Re: kellyb's story (belatedly)

Hi jem,

after my brace is removed i will have to get composite filling on that front tooth to make up the remaining 1mm. the gum specialist had suggested doing the contouring 2 months after the removal of the braces so i guess if braces come off in june then the surgery will be around august time.

Re: Cost?

Hi everyone, I am from the UK and trying to find a recommended good orthodontist for a anterior openbite, Braveface74, kellyb and Domino, can you share how you found your orthodontists?

Re: kellyb's story (belatedly)

Thanks Dee! Yes, it is very expensive but I will have to close my eyes and pay it lol. I have come this far through the journey that I don't think I have much of a choice. Will keep you posted on the progress. The ortho should give me a call when he gets the full report from the perio so I can make ...

Re: kellyb's story (belatedly)

Thanks Jem! As planned, I saw the perio this past Wednesday. The one I was recommended to is at Harley Street here in London. I was quite pleased with the visit. Basically his recommendation is for the orthodontist to pull down the shorter front tooth 1mm with the braces, and then for my dentist to ...

Hi braceface :D How are you? All is ok here with me. Yes, I am wearing both permanent and removable retainers on my lower arch since November when the braces was removed.
