Re: Near Completion - Shaping Teeth

Aww, thanks :)

I think you're right re: the centrals.

I go back next Monday to have my permanent retainer bonded. It seems surreal that it's almost over!

Re: Bonded Retainer in 6 days and Braces off December QUESTI

we spent SIX months trying to close a tiny space between my lateral incisor and canine.

And then he did an 'over/under' power chain (power chain, then the wire, then another power chain). BOOM, the space closed. Within like a week. It hurt really badly but it closed right up and has remained closed.

Re: How often are your visits?

I've gone every 4 weeks the entire time. Nearing completion (mid December??) and now it's every 2 weeks. I just found out a work event is the same day as my next appt and have to push it out another week. Whine! :)

Re: Near Completion - Shaping Teeth

Aww thanks everyone!! I'm going to ask him what he thinks. He only mentioned smoothing out the jagged incisor.

Near Completion - Shaping Teeth

I know that we can be the most critical of ourselves - bleh. I have always loved my teeth in a general sense...even with the large gap. But I've gotten really great results from braces and am looking at removal in about 6 weeks. My 2 front teeth are very slightly uneven and one is smooth while one h...

Re: Nearing completion, your opinion? (With pictures)

IMO it's one thing when you've achieved the best results possible for YOU --even if that doesn't mean "perfect" teeth. But, it's an entirely different thing when there's still room for improvement. I had an 18 month estimate and like many, I wanted them OFF. I will be at just under 23 months when th...

Re: 6 Months with braces! I am so happy with my progress

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!! :crazy: :-* :mrgreen: I don't have an exact debanding date because he sends his retainers out to be made. But I know that it will be before Christmas. I go back next week for a mold of my upper arch to have the fixed retainer made. A couple weeks later I will go back to have it...

Re: some teeth are not as long as others

I've definitely seen cases where people's teeth were "pulled down" with treatment.

Eta: never mind, I see you have a consultation tomorrow. Be sure to ask the ortho!

Re: 6 Months with braces! I am so happy with my progress

Still not done. Got a double power chain today. But I told him this was it. We will see if it closes in 3 weeks. I'm going to talk to my dentist about composite bonding on that tooth.

The space is like 1/2 a mm!!!!!! Sooooo hopefully I will be brace-free by thanksgiving!
