Re: How can you bring down a tooth with braces?

Hello!

You have to be a full member before you can post picture (I believe you have to post at least 7 times before that happens).

I would absolutely call your ortho before your appt and ask if you can schedule one just to discuss your treatment.

Re: Dry Mouth

I'm not braced (yet) but in preparation I bought some "dry mouth" lozenges from ACT. I'm pretty sure in fear somewhere on this board that they will help out a lot.

Re: Initial Deposit For Treatment

No problem! The office that I ended up choosing were SUPER flexible with me. I'm making a down payment, in 6 months I make another large payment and then go monthly after that. I have a HSA through my employer and my employer puts money in there at the beginning of the year. I wanted to maximize tha...

Re: Initial Deposit For Treatment

I had two different consults and both of the offices were very flexible and we were willing to work out a payment plan. They both offered up to 24 months with no kind of interest.

Re: Question for you guys

Honestly, if that were to just pop up while browsing I would probably just close it. I think most of us are used to pop ups / ads / whatever, it doesn't really phase anyone.

However, if I DID need to talk to someone and I couldn't initiate the chat, I would be frustrated.

Re: Hidden tooth progress!

I have a tooth almost exactly like yours - it's one more over from the center though (sorry I dont know tooth numbers or names lol) I do already have a gap there from a baby tooth that I just got extracted. Thanks for sharing the pictures, it's awesome to see and can't wait for my tooth to get where...

Re: The 3 week wait !!

Hi Erin! My brace date is Sept 4 so just a week after you :) Regarding molar bands, it seems to depend on your treatment. If they need that anchor to make the correct movements, then you'll probably get them. I was going back and forth between metal and ceramic also. My new ortho charges more for ce...

I would definitely check in with your ortho office. They'll let you know if it needs to be fixed .

Re: Dissapointment

Ahhh!! I'm so excited! I went to the other ortho consult today and I LOVED their office. It definitely had less frills but it totally fit me. And it was $600 to $1300 cheaper (depending on what kind I decide on). My brace date is Sept 4th which is only a day later than the original plan. Thanks for ...

Re: My Ortho Doesn't Waste a Minute

If the contract says the fee about the retention, I don't see any issues.

I'm sure they send out that letter to every person who is scheduled for a debanding a couple days before the debanding appointment.

Re: Dissapointment

Thanks for sharing your story realfroggie. Most of my stress is coming from the financial aspect. I think the sacrifice is worth it but I feel guilty for asking my husband to make the cutbacks needed to make this happen.
