Re: Posterior open bite relapse: time for new ortho?

Dearest Samoorelaw, I just want to tell you that I sympathesize with you. After everything you went through, even surgery, you don't deserve this. That is very good that you have an appointment with your ortho next week. I think he should help you for free, because he has to do a decent job. Your te...

Re: Elastics instead of surgery??

Hello! What an AMAZING progress you have made! I can understand why your ortho thinks he can close your bite without surgery. My ortho always told me that open bites have a high relapse rate, whether they are closed surgically or with elastics. The method (surgical or elastics) doesn't matter so muc...

Re: Beginning treatment to improve open bite.

Hello, That is great that you will be done by May! I hope the ortho can make your bite a bit more level. I think this is possible with elastics. And I was wondering, do you still have a crossbite or did your ortho managed already fixed this? I don't see a crossbite in your pictures, your teeth reall...

Re: Beginning treatment to improve open bite.

Yes, this is a really great result and how wonderful that this was achieved without surgery!
Your ortho must be very competent!

Your teeth look great. Maybe they can make your bite a bit more level with the elastics and then you are done!

Re: just genioplasty to solve lip incompetence?

Hello, I am very sorry that you are still not happy, Leon, that the genio did even make your lip incompetence worse.... As far as I understand a genio can help lip incompetence if you have lip incompetence due to a receding chin (like I have). But when you have a gummy smile or so, you need upper ja...
