Hi there,

This sound unusual and definitely doesn't tally with my experience. It's true, one should be handy with pliers to make the final adjustments that can't be made from the plaster model alone - which the orthodontist would make at the chairside normally. Also, I have very sensitve spots in my lower yaw and I've had to grind away acryllic to make some braces fit painlessly. That said, the general fit has usually been very good for me.

All in all, you should probably get back to them, desribing your problem in detail. In my experience, the will offer to make adjustments charging only the shipping.

Got my twin block about 4 days ago, it's been so exciting ;D! I have not worn it out yet, I've been working a lot since then, but I'm hoping to get the opportunity to soon. My partner has seen me wear it a few times. It holds my bite open a bit and the wires protrude just a bit, so it feels like I have a very full mouth. Also, the amount of acrylic is incredible. Almost everywhere my tongue can touch is either wire or acrylic, which feels amazing. It really affects my speech as well, it is fairy lispy and definitely sounds like I have a large acrylic plate in my mouth. I imagine that people will be able to tell right away when I am speaking to them. They are so awesome!

My one concern is that the top plate doesn't sit completely against my palate, and I've been going back and forth about sending it back to get it fixed. On one hand, it makes my speech very lispy, and I have some problems with drool, but on the other hand I imagine it would be even more comfortable if I were to get it fixed. The lower plate also irritates the spot under my tongue, but I'm hoping I can just file that away a little bit. It's also a pain to send them all the way from the states, and then be without them for probably 2 - 3 weeks. Anyone else have this problem?

Sounds great that you have got something that is that good. All I can say from experience is that when you get one that really fits it feels so much more part of you.
One of mine didn't fit so well up to the top of my mouth. Once I got one that did, I really got to feel what it was all about. It also stayed in place much better with no shifting around.

After wearing my activator for a while it is a good fit it takes a lot of getting used to! But it is great. Its a real mouthful of metal

My upper and lower retainer with brackets come this morning, been wearing them all day. Great fit!

I work on my own and get to speak with a lot of people so was nice to wear them infront of others!
