Re: Are My Teeth Messed Up Enough To Justify Braces?

Midline looks straight, there looks to be a mild open bite but I'm not certain and if your jaw shifts to the left when opening then...

Re: Tim's Treatment NEW PICS ::: UPDATED PLEASE READ 03/11 :::

Here is a photo of the molar they are going to bracket but I'm not sure how this will work out as there is bone loss next to this tooth if they pull it towards they are pulling to an area that likely wont support the molar unless bone moves too. http://i345.photobucket.com/albums/p400/tschott2010/Mo...

Re: Tim's Treatment NEW PICS ::: UPDATED PLEASE READ 03/11 :::

3 Months, 2 Weeks, 4 Days since I started treatment again and this time there wasn't much change at all. Go in and see the ortho, she says everything is looking good and were going to bracket a back molar next appointment Dec 22nd. My concern is if they try to pull the tooth forward there is no bone...

Re: Can a Hawley retainer inhibit jaw growth?

I'm no expert but u would think that a Hawley being more solid would inhibit his jaw growth because it's being retained by a hard like retainer. Again I could be wrong

He/she will be able to tell you if they need you to come in to get it fixed or if it can wait till your next appointment. Do you...

Re: back up Essix?

I've had essix in the past when I was a teenager and grinded through 3 sets. I then asked about Hawleys which worked great for me however I broke mine and the ortho office I went to was no longer in service. Fast forward 10 years down the road I'm back in braces round 2.
