The Orthodontics Iceberg
« on: 12. February 2022, 22:30:14 PM »
So, as the title suggests, I decided to start working on an iceberg chart for orthodontic appliances and practices, since there doesn't seem to be one out there yet. Here's a link to what I've got so far: https://dereferer.me/?https://i.imgur.com/I0EHacS.png

I'm interested to hear what you guys think I should add (or remove, or move to another tier), which is why I'm posting it here. The general rules I devised for the tiers are as follows:
  • Tier 1: things everyone knows about
  • Tier 2: more niche stuff, but still relatively common
  • Tier 3: uncommon appliances/practices
  • Tier 4: rare appliances/practices
  • Tier 5: stuff bordering on the absurd, but that still exist/have existed
  • Tier 6: mythical or very rare appliances/practices
  • Tier 7: extreme and/or imaginary appliances/practices

Genius! I'm less knowledgeable about some of the more obscure real-life treatments, so this is a treat! It'd be fun to see some devices from stories on the bottom tier...

I haven't really read that many stories with devices that really stood out to me. Do you have any suggestions?

I mean your story Gemini is pretty good! And I guess it'd be narcissistic to mention my own... there should be way more stories about fantasy devices...

I like the idea of stories that have unusual or extreme treatments. If enough people would write stories with these things, I would create a category for them in TheArchive.

That'd be amazing!

If anyone finds any stories in TheArchive that they feel need a special category, let me know. TheArchive is a continually growing work in progress. Everyone is welcome to help me make it better.

And sometimes you'll get to see bits of stories before they actually get published....
