bite pads make eating hard!

Hi! Thanks for your encouraging messages. I hope to see great results soon! I am settling well with the braces, they don't hurt too much fortunately. But eating is quite difficult, because of the bite pads on my molars. They put the bite pads on to prevent my top teeth from hitting my bottom bracket...

got my braces on today!

Hello, I got my braces on today! I have an open bite, unilateral crossbite, a misaligned jaw and many misaligned teeth. The ortho recommended surgery for me, but I declined this.

Re: refusing surgery for an open bite and crossbite

Hello Quentin, Thanks for your supportive message! It is good to hear that you also choose for a non surgical route. You are right that surgery is very costly and invasive. I am happy to hear that you already see some progress after only two weeks, that is very quick! And encouraging! I already had ...

refusing surgery for an open bite and crossbite

Hello, I am almost 40 years old and I have an open bite, unilateral crossbite and misaligned teeth/ jaw (from thumbsucking when I was younger). I consulted an orthodontist and he advised SARPE and upper jaw surgery for me. However, I declined these surgeries because they sound far too scary for me. ...

Re: Open Bite Journey

Hello! Welcome! I also have an open bite (from thumbsucking) and I also decided against surgery. My orthodontist recommended SARPE and upper jaw surgery to me, but I refused. These surgeries scared me too much. And I am also against surgery because my problems are mainly esthetic and not functional....
