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

feeling much better now :)

how long did your teeth move? It seems like my left canine are moving but my right canine has barely moved. I think it's more than 1mm of movement for the past month, How do I make the right one move faster?

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

the extractions were a nightmare! :( But I guess that's because I am really really scared of needles. I'm just so happy it's over.

what do you mean between? The brackets ordered and used were I guess for protrusion which my ortho mentioned :)

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

My 2 lower bicuspids were finally removed yesterday! It could have been 2 weeks ago but I had other appointments. 4 teeth removed! I'm hoping they would move faster :(

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

dentist says it would be a waste to have them removed if it does move. But nothing seems to be moving! Finally convinced my dentist to start removing my teeth, had 2 removed yesterday. I feel very miserable eating but I'm happy :)

Re: Extraction of bicuspids and benefits on the profile

I had powerchains too, during nearly all my treatment. They were double for most of the time. Like you, I had gaps between my incisors on the middle of the treatment. So that's the proof that your teeth are moving back well! Moreover I had a special arch with loops, to accentuate the moving back of...

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

Aleardy 1+ month with braces, just changed elastics and the wire last 25th. My dentist still insisted not having my premolars removed! :( She says to wait for 3-4 months to see movement of teeth coming in. I really don't want to wait that long! I've been dreaming of having a non-protruding mouth but...
