My Dream Treatment had to start slowly with a Twin Block + Headgear with Neck- and Head-Straps
Starting for the first two weeks with 8 hours at night, the next two weeks with 12 hours, the next two weeks with16 hours and after that with23 hours for 1 1/2 years

After this I would become a Palatal Expander for upper and lower jaw for 3 months,
after this time I would get herbst together with the expanders,
after this time I would get a facemask together with the expanders for at least 2 years.

Followed by metal braces for 5 years with a lot of combinations of elastics and powerchain, together with a Interlandi headgear for the whole time

After the braces are removed, I have to wear a hawley retainer for the first year 23h a day, after that another year 16h a day and for the rest of my life 12h a day

I always wonder if "dream treatment" means that people would actually like to do that given the chance or if it's just that they like to fantasize about it, but would "chicken out" if actually given the chance...  :D

I have many "dream treatments" that I'd like to experience, so I end up writing stories that include some of them.

It's interesting that, over the years, the details of my desires have changed. Initially I had a thing about removable braces, and the feel of the plastic in the mouth - I wanted to experience removable braces, and having bought some removables, I have had that experience (albeit not from a proper orthodontist!).

From that I wanted to see what headgear would be like, and I've also experienced that too.

So what's left? Well, in one of my recent stories, the main character is getting some quite different braces - fake brackets with a herbst and a tongue crib.... that would be something to experience. Another think I'd like to try is something that same character is also trying : twin blocks.

So, for my dream treatment, I'd need to get some upper teeth that stick out a bit, and a lower jaw that needs pushing out. Probably with some other crooked teeth!

For me, this is mostly fantasy. I would love to actually experience this, but not as myself (if that makes any sense?)

It would start with a fixed tongue crib 10 months that gives me a noticeable lisp, but nothing visible except a bit of metal behind my front teeth.

Then I would get upper and lower brackets and within a few weeks of those, headgear (cervical 23 hours a day, high pull 16 hours a day). In this fantasy the ortho would wire it in for the first few weeks to force me to get used to wearing it in public. Both headgear straps would be the safety-strap style with the multiple holes. I would still have the fixed tongue crib. This would last a year.

Next the headgear times are lowered (cervical 16 hours a day only). After another 8-10 months, I only need to wear the headgear at night for another year.

Once done with the headgear, I keep the upper and lower brackets and get multiple elastics. Still have the tongue crib.

After that I would get some hawleys to wear 8 hours a day, and a really complex appliance to wear the remaining 16 (something like this http://dereferer.org/?https://www.bracesshop.com/de/funktionelle-geraete/38/aktivator-mit-zungengitter-und-pelotten but designed to retain rather than move my teeth).

After two years I would only need to wear the appliance at night, and hawleys a few times a month. This would go on indefinitely, or until I need braces again.

Personally, I have a few dream treatments, ranging from the one I would undergo tomorrow if I could to the crazy fantasy one I wouldn't commit to in real life/outside of my mind.

For one of these, I'd like a "treatment" that would allow me to use most appliances on a trial basis with little commitment (meaning I'd use something for a weekend in but not go out for everyday wear).

My realistic treatment would be metal braces/elastics and maybe one additional device like bite blocks or maybe a tongue crib, since that would probably fix what problems are going on (I've never been told I need them to fix my bite, unlike my younger siblings)

But the crazy fantasy treatment I'd only want in my dreams would go as follows. I'd be committed to it for an extended amount of time, and it would happen as a complete surprise. I'd go into a new dentist office (which I later learn does ortho work too) thinking I'm going for routine dental work, and end up with an expander for each jaw, lip bumpers, and braces on the first visit. Alternatively, braces and a functional appliance that has an expansion element and would restrict contact my lips/cheeks make with my mouth would be used this first visit. Over time the orthodontist (who is definitely is loving every moment working on me and seeing me squirm) will add a tongue crib, a herbst, and bite blocks/bite plate. After a year or two of this I'll start getting the appliances off, probably in an order that allows my lips to touch again. I'd be thinking I'm approaching the end of treatment, when I'll be surprised with 2 facebows wired in. After another year of this, I'll finally move to just braces, elastics, and a device that will hold my jaws in the position they had been moved to. When the braces come off, I'll keep the rigid jaw devices and receive hawleys as my retention plan.

My dream treatment would be simple but complicated.
 Metallic braces, the largest and most metallic possible, in both jaws, the first month I would have 4 elastics of medium strength, he told me that it would not be very complicated since my bite was nothing to write home about, but the main thing is to straighten my teeth,  which are not so bad either.
 In the second he looks at something curious, and that is that my teeth did not move at all, but he decides to shut up and puts some strong elastics on me and tells me to use them in an almost scolding tone and puts the arch as tight as possible.  Until the third appointment, where I would put on the cervical headgear for the lower jaw, he would tell me that he planned to give it to me at 6 months but due to little progress, he preferred to give it to me now, I would have to wear it for today all day and  not take it off until tomorrow morning and that I would have to go to the fit with the position at every appointment and wear it like today, all day until morning and I would have to wear it for about 12 hours, and she suspecting that I am not wearing my elastics when  actually if I use them.
 The fourth month arrives, and see that my teeth did move but very little, she still thinks that I do not use my elastics or the headgear, so it increases me to 14 hours.
 On the fifth date, she realizes that they did move a little more, but almost nothing.
 The orthodontist was already getting tired of my "indiscipline" and extended me to 18 hours, I was already claiming that if I was using everything that he asked me to hide, since he was enjoying it, but he told me that he would see the results in  the next appointment.
 In the sixth, look at my progress but exactly the same, very slow, he scolds me and I swore that I was using everything to the letter and it is true, so he decides to take some tests that are only done to people with serious problems.  And she tells me that I have a problem with my gums, which makes them almost as hard as stone.  In childhood it is not noticeable since one is at a developmental age, but I remember (in history), that my permanent teeth did not come out correctly until I was 15 years old.  This is beneficial if my treatment had been done when I was a child, as I would not need retainers.  But in adults it would be torture, since the teeth hardly move.  so she gives me two options.  Either I end my treatment and keep my teeth as they are, which are not so bad, or I continue with my treatment but it would be a treatment in which I would have to use connected and combined headgear 24/7 and at least 8 elastics of the super strong  and that I would not know when it would end but at least 4 would be using headgear and that I would also have to go once a week.  I told him that I would continue with my treatment, so I went to the chair to connect the headgear and remove 4 premolars or else, my treatment would last twice as long, I said no at first but he told me it was that or  surgery, and for no reason did he want surgery and he said goodbye, he would be like that for 6 months.
 At one year old, she sees that my progress has been according to expectations, but that she needs another headgear to be placed on my upper jaw, since after extraction, the upper molars have not moved at all with the elastics.  and now I would have 2 headgears connected for a year, people saw me very strange, but I was happy, with a very strong pain but happy.
 In the second year, he tells me that the headgears are no longer necessary, so he disconnects them, and gives me a face mask, and he told me that I would have to wear it for 12 hours on the upper jaw for 6 months, since only  I needed to go a little further back but not much.  I ignored it and used it for 24 hours.
 It seems too strange to her, that we were struggling to get my teeth to move more than they should and out of nowhere, and after 3 months she suspended the mask and put power chains on me but I ignored her and kept using it.  When the 6 months were up, she was frustrated because my teeth got worse and I told her the truth, and I justified myself saying that it would be faster and of course, she did not like it at all, but she said that in a way it helped, since it  I was going to put the headgears back on but for only 18 hours and 1 year, now we are 6 months late, I apologize and go to the chair to put on both headgears, but the upper one would be connected due to the face mask and the  lower arch I would use it 18 hours for 6 months waiting for results, (by the way, I would continue with strong elastics throughout this time and the arch as strong as ever).
 The 6 months passed and progress was made, but now he tells me that the headgear (both) would use them for 12 hours as retention, and that he would put a face mask with elastics on my canines for the other 12 hours, since due to the  wearing the power chains, my canines were going backwards, but to avoid the face mask happening again, now I would have to go with it every day as follows, the headgears would wear them overnight past the  12 hours, I go to the office and he puts the face mask on me for the other 12 hours until the night where I would put on the headgear and in the morning I would put on the face mask and as for the arches, I would tighten them according to need  but I would do it one day yes and one day no, but it would charge me the same as always, once a week but I would go every day, and I was like that for a year and a half, and even at Christmas and New Years I went, (It was the period  longer but more pleasant of my treatment).
 I take off my face mask, but I would keep the headgear for 12 hours of vigor plus the day I have to go to consultation, by the way, from now on, I will go once a week again, and she told me  that technically my teeth are already straight, but as my gums are unruly apart from being hard, I would have to be with braces for two years as a retainer and headgear as usual, or with a common patient, at most it is 6 months with power  chains and the retainer, but since I am not an ordinary patient, I have to get my gums to assimilate their new position, and that takes time but I would no longer require the elastics.
 He spends the first year of both with the braces and puts the power chains on me.
 It is my second year, and he tells me that he is not going to take them off yet but that he will take off devices over the months, and today he reduced my headgear from 12 to 8 hours for 6 months and took off my power chains  , and it loosens the wire a bit.
 After 7 and a half years, she removes my braces and tube bands.  And he gives me the Hawley retainers but he gives me 4, 2 singles and 2 with headgear, those who wear the headgear I would use them at night, from 8 to 12 hours, it depends on me, and the others for the rest of the day, from 12  at 16 hours, it did not matter, and that I would have to go every month to see how my teeth are per year, and after the year, go every 6 months for two more years, and that over the years, I would reduce the hours  With the retainers, if there is a problem, I go back to wearing my braces.
 8 and a half years of very happy braces, although in the end, in retention I would miss them a lot.
 But that's the impossible treatment of my dreams.
 My possible dream treatment is one with metallic braces, elastic bands and a headgear, it doesn't matter how much I have to use it, nor the configuration, I just want to use one, although I think it would be about 12 hours or even 14 to generate complications, but I see  It is quite difficult to get one, because I live in Latin America and my teeth are not bad enough to need it.
PD: Google Translate.

Bracesbrace, your plan involving a condition with your gums being much harder than normal is interesting! I've never even thought about that being a possible complication in either a real life or fantasy world, but honestly it could be written into a pretty good story.

Side note, Google Translate worked really well in this situation. I wouldn't have known if you hadn't said it

Well, thank you very much, the truth is, it was the only thing that occurred to me to have an aggressive treatment for a patient whose teeth are not so bad, that it is only a problem of crooked teeth, and that the orthodontist believes that it is an easy case but which is actually a very complicated one. And well, if someone wants to use this publication for a story, I give you permission, the truth is I'm not a good writer in terms of plots, but if someone wants to use the whole publication and with the treatment times, they can do it perfectly, just let me know when he publishes it, so as not to miss it for the world.
Just do not overdo the treatment by putting braces that affect the jaw, because it is a fetishist looking for orthodontics, and who thinks it will be a simple treatment, and an orthodontist who thinks it will be an easy case and after 6 months has won the lottery, so to speak.
