Getting braces for the 2nd time because of protrusion

#1 Post by badbraces » Wed Jul 20, 2016 2:51 am

Hi I had my braces back when I was 19-21. This was 9-11 years ago and planning to get my braces tomorrow.

just had an x-ray earlier, here are the images:

side view here you can see that my teeth is protruding so much!

I can't close my mouth naturally and thought that my teeth could be the culprit? would getting extractions reduce the protrusion of my lips?

Hi! Thank you for sharing your X-rays.
You have a bimaxillar protrusion and you will probably receive a treatment with extraction of 4 bicuspids.
That's the best solution in my opinion.
I had a bimaxillar protrusion too and I had this type of treatment.
I am braceless now and I am very happy!
Don't hesitate asking me questions!

thanks lovespain!

I've made a gif on the possible before and after of my protrusion, I measured the 2x 1st bicuspid top to be removed and the 2x 2nd lower bicuspid. Hopefully this will be the result! and I can finally close my mouth properly

Very well-made gif! Hopefully you will achieve this result!
I had extracted 4 bicuspids, but all were the first.
I dunno how long will be your treatment. Mine lasted 32 months.
As you see I had lip incompetence and now I close my mouth properly.
Your profile will change a lot but you will have a smaller mouth after the treatment too.
Here's a photo of my smile after the treatment : http://www.imageshack.us/i/poQCrJxij

Strange why your protrusion hadn't been corrected during your first treatment...

Thank you!
Me too, I'm so happy having a smaller mouth, no more lip incompetence and a stronger chin .
My face has become much balanced than before and my self confidence improved a lot.

finally scheduled my braces for monday!

question, is the extraction of bicuspids after getting braces? I thought they were going to be extracted before installing the braces.

Mine had been extracted before getting the braces but the other option is frequent too.

I'm back from the dentist and I just had my braces installed, it's been 10 years since I had my previous one and this is really bothersome to close my teeth! With the braces I now need the extra push just to keep my mouth closed! :(

my dentist says she will see if there's movement without extraction within 2 months. If there isn't my teeth gets extracted 2 months from now.

OK! Good luck with your treatment!
So if the orthodontist sees some movements you may be treated without extractions?
