Re: Dissapointment

Yeah I have a couple more options to look at in regards to ortho options in the area. I'm just going to try one at a time and hopefully find a good fit!! I'm feeling better about the whole situation.

I will be getting ceramic on top and metal on the bottom - traditional - no damon or anything like that. My sentence is 18-24 months =/ I'm hoping more toward...

Re: How many consults did you have before choosing an Ortho?

I only did one. I was referred by my dentist. I was super comfortable in the office and with the staff. I didn't feel like it as necessary to go somewhere else. I would have though if I didn't like that office.

Re: Can ceramic braces be re glued (rebonded) if they fall o

The fee from my orthodontist covers everything but they do "reserve the right" to charge extra for excessive rebonding / emergency appts / etc.

It just depends from ortho to ortho I would guess.
