Re: Treatment longer than predicted?

Mine was estimated at about 18 months but when I recently snuck a look at the computer at my last adjustment, it said 24 months. But then, my case is more complicated due to my needing jaw surgery so that's to be expected. I expect to have surgery within the next 3-4 months...

Re: How many brackets have fallen off during your treatment?

I'm 8.5 months into treatment and haven't had one fall off. The only issue I've had is have one o-ring pop off otwo weeks prior to an adjustment, and that was due to my biting down on a cherry that still had a pit in it (ouch!).

Re: Anyone get braces without spacers first?

I had only one spacer put on 4 months into treatment to make room for a molar band on a crowned tooth.

Re: Need Orthagnathic Surgery- Need suggestions re: Price

I was quoted just under $8,000 in Las Vegas, which includes the anesthesiologist fee. Done in office suite. I was originally quoted over $50,000 with another surgeon including the hospital. So glad I ended up listening to my dentist and orthodontist and went to the oral surgeon they recommended.
