Arch widening progress happiness!

#1 Post by Bracingmyself901 » Sun Nov 19, 2017 11:04 pm

Took basically a year to get two blocked incisors that were not braced until 11 months after to get (mostly) in the arch! I really thought it would be mission impossible to widening my arch simply with braces (the first ortho I consulted said it would either be four extractions or jaw surgery, but decided to go with the ortho who wanted to try a non-extraction approach before yielding to extractions)

As you can see from the first photo my smile was super narrow and it was as if my front teeth were pushed in making it in possible for the incisors to join the line. By slimming some teeth and flaring the teeth so they have less of a "pushed in" look and it a more normal position made plenty of room for those rouge and wayward blocked teeth. My canine was also very high and not in the arch, but that came down pretty quickly in the beginnig

Can't wait till the finish results! :-*

Congrats!! Coming along nicely!

I don't envy the bite turbos!
Upper ceramics 5/21/14, Lower stainless 5/28/14
Double jaw surgery was 6/18/15. Estimated time Jan 2016; still on at my 2 year anniversary...

I'm emphatically against extraction orthodontics! It's easier for the orthodontist; not better for the patient!!!
