Braces Round 2
« on: 28. August 2022, 06:56:59 AM »
Looks like I will be joining the club of having braces for the second time.  Only difference so far is bite blocks are planned behind my front teeth.  The Treatment Coordinator compared it to having legos glued to the back of my teeth.  We shall see in about a month.

First time I had 6 molar bands, elastics for 22 months.  This time, no bands but they are going to bracket every tooth, starting with top only.  The bite blocks are the only thing that concerns me so far...

Congrats!

Do you have an appointment to get your braces on? (Is that the "in about a month" you mentioned?)

I am probably going to get bite turbos on the back of my front teeth once I get my full braces (could be anywhere from 6 to 10 months from now, based on the estimates I was told at my consult).

@thejester19 Did you not wear retainers and your teeth have shifted so much that you want to straighten them again or was there another reason? Are you getting ceramic or standard metal braces? Looking forward to following your treatment

Wore my retainers as instructed and they still shifted.  The overbite is causing pressure on my front teeth and making them move.  Doing standard metal again.

Right on. Hopefully you'll share pictures of the progress...
