Re: Are my teeth straight?

You know what, they're actually not perfect. I still feel like my bite needs some adjusting on one side so I'll see what he says when I go back for my retainer. Also, that tooth next to my front tooth looks like it's sticking out a bit. But compared to how they were they look great and maybe there a...

Re: Are my teeth straight?

Ok thanks everyone!

I just feel like the second teeth could turn a bit more, they're not quite flush with the front teeth but noone else seems to be able to see it so maybe its just me!

Will definitely get them whitened next and looking forward to being able to eat what I want! :jump:

Are my teeth straight?

They are due to come off next week but they don't look as great as I imagined. The 2 teeth next to my front teeth could be straighter I think? Every time I mention it to my orthodontist, he does some tweaks but looks at me like I'm mad!

What do you think?

Re: Braces off Tuesday. What should I expect?

How did this go? Can anyone else share their experiences?

I have a good few months to go but had a bracket changed today and it's made me really nervous about getting my braces off, I thought she was going to pull my tooth out!

What are power chains used for other than closing gaps?

I had power chains put on today on the top and bottom 6 teeth. There are gaps to close at the bottom but not the top, in fact the top still aren't all lined up.

So why would they put a powerchain on the top?

Re: Front tooth suddenly longer

Ah I see, I don't think as I would see no reason why he would need to do this.

I will bring it up at my next appointment.

Re: Front tooth suddenly longer

Hi! Thank you, that's the reassurance that I was looking for haha. The tooth is not mobile, it feels like a strong tooth, I just know that the root is not live. It is the bottom level of the tooth edge which is no longer the same, this tooth is slightly lower at the bottom edge than it previously wa...

Front tooth suddenly longer

Hi all, Today I have noticed that one of my front teeth is suddenly slighter longer than the other (had my braces on 6 months). Is this normal? Will it go back again? (They are long enough as it is!). Also, this tooth is what I call my dodgy tooth, it has had previous trauma and is partially dead at...

Re: First Adjustment Next Week

I have one tooth yet to be attached to the wire. There is currently a spring either side to make enough room.

I'm hoping they attach it this time to get it in line!

Noticed such a change already, it's amazing.

First Adjustment Next Week

Hi all, got my first adjustment next week and feeling a bit nervous! What should I expect? How long will it take? How long will the pain last?

It's 2 days before I go on holiday so worried the pain will ruin my hols!
