Re: Getting braces for the 2nd time because of protrusion

Hang in there. You have come so far already and it would be a shame to get your braces off anything less than the perfect timing for them to be off or for a result that is anything less than perfect. But that said, if you truly feel it's good enough for you, you could perhaps talk to your ortho and...

Re: Getting braces for the 2nd time because of protrusion

sorry what I meant tosay is that my ortho doesn't let me wear elastics or powerchains! :?

going to post photos when I can get a decent shot, but it's definitely a huge improvement and I'm so happy on the changes (except this slow delay) :D

Re: Getting braces for the 2nd time because of protrusion

Hi it's been a while since I last posted. I haven't posted because there's only slight changes to my teeth. My ortho made my teeth "rest" to untip my lower teeth. But it's taking too long (going 1 year now without elastics)and I'm getting upset because I just want to remove these braces ASAP because...

Re: Extraction of bicuspids and benefits on the profile

I went to the ortho one week ago to talk about the first 6 months after treatment. So nothing has changed since my braces had been off. My teeth and my profile are straight and my lips stay perfectly competent. But there is other improvements I didn't think about during my metal mouth era : - first...

Re: Getting braces for the 2nd time because of protrusion

I can see some results being that my lower lip isn't that protruded anymore than my upper lip :)

It isn't that much of a difference so I'll post pictures when I'll see better progress, but I'm more confident laughing now as my teeth don't point that much outwards anymore :lol:

Re: Getting braces for the 2nd time because of protrusion

thanks! seems to be 1mm per month for my left side and around 1mm per 3 months for the right side! :cry:

24 months seems so long though. Was it also 24 months for your lip incompetence to go away?

double elastics so teeth can move faster?

hi, just wondering if anyone tried this one? I'm hoping my teeth would move faster closing the gap. Thanks!
