24-year-old daughter and spring aligners!
Posted: Fri Jun 27, 2014 4:15 am
My daughter turns 24 this year and recently shocked us by announcing that she wants to "fix" her upper four teeth. She hated her teeth since childhood (we also recently found that out). She went to a dentist and he recommended that she get a spring aligner to help her expand her upper arch (I hope I'm using the correct anatomical words) and to help her two rotated front teeth become aligned. She is also an optometrist as I am, and she says she's been experiencing a "lisping sensation" when speaking. Does anyone know if this does get better? And also, do you think this will be a two year cycle as it is with braces, or will she be able to have aligned teeth by this time next year?
