what do i do need help and advice

#1 Post by khalidfa1sal » Wed Nov 01, 2017 3:43 am

so 5 months ago i had my braces on my mouth was prominent i want it to be pushed in a little so my profile will be way better .. the dr said he can do this no facial changes will occur i am in the 4th treatment and now i look way older like 10 years older in just 5 months i have thin face saggy cheeks and the space between my upper lips and nose is longer i hate how i look now

am not sure if this is caused by the extraction!! i think it was caused by my teeth movement.. now i don't know what to do if i continue the space will be longer between upper lip and nose and cheeks will get more saggy.. the doctor doesn't listen and he says it's all in your head?

what i am going to do now it taking them off i heard teeth might return to its original position if i don't wear retainers so hopefully my face will return to how it was before

any advice ?


sorry if my English was bad and sorry if this is not the right place to post this

i have the same problem! absolutely hate the changes that occurred to my face, but im sure others will not notice it as much as we do! dont take it off nor neglect your retainer, youll have yourself a beautiful smile and youll eventually get used to these changes.
i can see that you are a guy from your name, how about growing a mustache and a beard, im sure that will cover the spaces you hate nicely :)

Well beard makes you even look older haha but I guess I will grow it soon.. but I don't see the point of having straight teeth if your face will be werked haha.. hmmm let's just pray this is timed and my face will fill again my sister told me when she had braces he face was thin but she mentioned she lost weight.. which is weird I actually gained weight :crazy:

Ok so I decided to go on with it now I have 6 treatments left.. so scared but I can't wait to get the braces off of my face.. :huh: I feel like I hate them now I just wish I never had them when I look in the mirror and see them I hate them ever more.. they caused all the sunken cheeks and sunken temples affect on my face :lol:

Even if my face didn't return back to normal I just want to warn people of this. Braces can change your face to the worse

So today I changed my hairstyle to cover my forehead :-* I look silly or maybe I look better Idk I used to style it up but now after the sunken temples I just feel ahhh like this forhead should be covered.. :thumbsup: .



I also want to share this before I never get called ugly I don't remember anyone calling me ugly.. some people found me cute before.. I get some compliments from a time to a time.. but recently one of my friends which used to hit on me (he is gay) i am straight he called me ugly which was weird he always gives me compliments.. I immediately thought of the braces :lol: damn it

Hey there,
I totally feel you, same thing happened to me, 4 premolar extractions and slowly noticing changes that i dont like.
I recommend you find a good ( a seriously good!) orthodontist, maybe he can expand the arch / reopen the spaces, or whatever. But make sure to find someone who truly believes what you are saying because many orthodontists wont.
I am soon starting a "reversal" treatment; hope you'll find a way to deal with this !!
Good luck!
