Re: Just got retainers and my bite doesn't close

Hi, it's probably worth discussing with your ortho at your next retainer check appointment or sooner if it is concerning you. There was an academic research paper published on this topic looking at whether the thickness of essix retainers cause an issue with back teeth meeting and examining the mer...

Re: So excited to get braces!

:jump: Oh my! Look at that progress!!! Your teeth are looking incredible so far. It's crazy how much they have moved. :) I hope that you can figure all the wedding things off and that you can get them off temporarily. If not, I'm sure you can still rock them. :) Boo to the dental appointment. I know...

Re: My journey (expander, then braces)

Ack!!! I've definitely heard that retainers are a pain. Regarding the gum thing, in the past I have seen advice to file them down with a nail fail so they're not so sharp. So sorry Hun but hopefully you'll get used to them soon!! Retainers are for life... sadly! But better than our teeth moving bac...

Re: I'M FREE!!!

Your teeth look fantastic. Congrats! I am so jealous because tomorrow is supposed to be my debond date, however I think the last problem with my 2nd molars they are trying to fix isn't fixed yet. I can tell they've moved, but I'm pretty sure not enough. Anyways, I'll be joining you in "naked teeth"...

Just got retainers and my bite doesn't close

Is that okay? It's more of an open bite right now. They're essix retainers. I'll post a picture when I can, I just can't right now. But is that normal? I don't want my bite to not be correct when all is said and done and its odd to me that they aren't meshing perfectly or close to. Is there anything...

Re: I'M FREE!!!

Wow that's amazing ! Did you need any extractions? Thanks. :) Just my extremely impacted wisdom teeth were extracted. I had absolutely no room for them. My ortho office is a non-extraction office, which is controversial on here. I personally think extractions can go well for some people. I just did...

Re: My journey (expander, then braces)

In only a couple days I will find out if I'm getting debraced or at least the next time of when I can hope to. I'm trying really hard not to get too excited for brace removal at my appointment on Tuesday because I know that if I do, I'm going to end up disappointed. I think he may decide to keep the...
