Re: Extract one side at a time or all at once?

I'm getting my teeth extracted next month so would like to read inputs on this. I was thinking of getting 4 teeth at once to get it over with but I guess eating would suck so much! :cry:

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

oh I see, I would want a maximum retraction! But my dentist didn't mention anything about screws (sounds very painful)

I'm doing a lot better today chewing has been a lot more comfortable (day 6) but there's still pain.

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

I have 8 excess teeth! My previous dentist from 10 years ago said she had never seen someone with so much extra teeth! My current dentist says I have unusual teeth as well because I still have 1 extra wisdom tooth but it's small but it's shaped like a full wisdom tooth. :lol: How are the braces goin...

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

5 wisdom teeth surgically extracted but I have no more space in my mouth because my dentist says my jaw is small and my teeth are regular sized. I really think my bicuspids need to be extracted. I know it's only been 4 days since my braces but I was hoping for a faster pace so I can close my mouth :...

Re: Gummy smile and will it go away???

I was also thinking of jaw surgery but couldn't afford it. So I was hoping braces could fix it a bit (make my jaw shorter) by pulling my teeth back up. Hopefully it will lessen my gummy smile along with my lips being able to be closed naturally. Also laser for gums will help after my braces since my...

Re: Gummy smile and will it go away???

I have this issue too. I think it's because my teeth were pulled down to close my open bite so my jaw is longer now and upper gums show up more. I'm having my braces again after 10 years to fix my protrusion and also want my gummy smile to be reduced.

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

I guess so, I'm not really sure how they will fit :( I wanted extractions so I can see the teeth move, wanted to ask anyone here who have tried not getting extractions with extreme protrusion like mine

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

I'm back from the dentist and I just had my braces installed, it's been 10 years since I had my previous one and this is really bothersome to close my teeth! With the braces I now need the extra push just to keep my mouth closed! :( my dentist says she will see if there's movement without extraction...

Re: Damon braces for protrusion?

thanks tyrant blade, I guess I'm going with the previous dentist as I think she is better as the latter doesn't seem to understand my protrusion maybe because she's too young :(

Damon braces for protrusion?

So I had gone to another dentist today and had mixed reactions on my teeth. She suggest "Damon" braces which she said will fix my protrusion. I am now confused, as I thought I needed bicuspid extractions with my teeth to normalize my protruding teeth and lips? She said extraction of bicuspids will c...

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

thanks lovespain!

I've made a gif on the possible before and after of my protrusion, I measured the 2x 1st bicuspid top to be removed and the 2x 2nd lower bicuspid. Hopefully this will be the result! and I can finally close my mouth properly
