My orthodontist said that braces would only take three months? Have anyone here experienced good results that fast?

>> No.14196807

The braces is said to be the 'ferarri' in the braces world. Still seems unbelievable

>> No.14196826

Why not keep them longer? Even a year goes past quickly.

No one gives a shit about braces.

>> No.14196837

Why keep them on if the teeth are fine

>> No.14196838

it depends on the particular case, i had braces for 4 years 'cause my shit was really fucked up

>> No.14196842

4 years holy shit, how bad was your teeth?

>> No.14196845

I would think it mostly depends on the complexity of the treatment i.e. how fucked up your teeth are

Did your orthodontist mention anything about the retainers you'll have after?

>> No.14196850

really bad, i had a fang almost sticking out., they had to remove some teeth too, basically i had too little space for all my teeth
If your orthodontist thinks 3 months is enough your problem is probably super mild

>> No.14196853


>> No.14196861

damn! My teeth are not that bad but it is very noticeable. Maybe i have some sort of new type of "braces".I don't know if there are different technologies to different braces. As i earlier he called it the "ferarri" in the braces world lol.

>> No.14196865

He did mention that i would have a string at the back of my teeth for stabilization. And i would wear some kind of container for 12 hours a day, for probably close to a year.

i meant retainers

Damn, i've been on and off with braces for like 8-10 years, don't sweat it OP, you'll get used to them

I saw some video where you can just push some bubble gum against the top of your mouth. Someone may have the link but it will fix your teeth and give you a huge jaw.

i worked for a dentist and its such a scam, all 20+ of the braces cost the clinic like 500 bucks and you end up paying 8 k

>> No.14198304

Even with other braces your jaw needs to "heal" the cavity your teeth has moved from

>> No.14198422

can it weaken my jaw? my jaw right now is really good so i dont want that to happend

>> No.14198731

What do you mean by weaken it? Sure I guess physically it lowers durability temporarily but it will return to pre-bracer strength.

What happens with bracers is that the wires push and pulls on your teeth in different directions causing the body to remove bone in the direction the push is happening while filling the gap in the opposite direction. Thats why you have the retainers afterwards to avoid the teeth from creeping back.

>> No.14198734

To add to this; I doubt it will have any noticeable difference however.

>> No.14200027

Talk to your orthodontist if there's any concerns you have. I had braces for a year or 2 and it helped my chin.

I had mine for maybe a two years??? I was really young when I had them put in so I can't say so for sure. Just trust your orthodontist, they go through eons of schooling and make bank so they're there to make sure your pearly whites turn out fine.

My teeth are straight and it feels nice knowing I can smile with pride.

Braces also make a great conversation starter, especially with the well-off kids who had them when they were young.
You get used to them real quick, anon, highly recommended

im 20 with an overbite and crooked teeth, should I get braces? my mouth is 3/10 at best but idk if im based enough to rock braces at my age

Mike Mew's orthotropic approach is better than fixed appliances. All hail Mew, God of forward growth.

>> No.14201493

braces done wrong can fuck you up worse, some shady ass dentists will even remove teeth to apply them which will make your face sink as you age

>> No.14201498

Ortho student here. Can you post what the braces may be called? Are you willing to post your grill? Curious about your case. It may also be that he will give you a separate appliance which massages the gums (you use it for 20-30 mins a day) which helps shift the teeth in half the time.

Invisalign is more cosmetic than actually correcting dental issues like bite issues. It really is a case by case scenario. Also typically Invisalign is more.

>> No.14201508

Get them asap if you can afford. It may be a 3 year freaking process for all you know. You won't regret it, but it will be a struggle. Watch people's testimonials. They will also make you appear younger so doing it younger is best.

Mewing doesn't correct crowding or already developed problems post-puberty though. I will raise my kids on Mewing though.

OP, the pain on the 2nd/3rd day is pretty fucking bad take a painkiller and stick to soup until it’s tolerable

I will ask him what they are called, but doubt this thread will live to see the answer. I might post pic later. And yes after the three months i would have to wear something every day for 12 hours, dunno what its called

>Mewing doesn't correct crowding
this, it might help your jaw a little but thats it i think (?) maybe the lack of mewing can cause crooked teeth

Yeah it fucking hurts, but i dont need painkillers. The worst is eating..

My teeth aren't that bad, they are actually fairly straight except on my left half past the left front tooth all my teeth are in an underbite, I wouldn't normally mind this except for the fact that I'm almost certain this underbite has skewed my jaw and has made my face fairly uneven because of it.

Will braces also align my jaw too and make my face a bit more symmetrical? if not, what other options are there? pic related is my jaw

FYI for people getting braces for the first time; I hope you enjoy pain.
I've had mine since October last year (Need to get jaw surgery because my lower jaw is asymmetrical and juts out further than the top. Already got my wisdom teeth pulled for it in January.) and whenever they've replaced the wires, I can hardly eat anything for almost a week later. The first day with them on I woke up in pain because of how badly it hurt, and attempting to eat anything, even a banana, was far too painful. The best thing you'll be able to eat that doesn't require chewing is soup. Also, if you don't already have one, I highly recommend buying a waterpik to make your hygienic life with braces on a whole lot easier. You will not regret the purchase you've made, because it's by far the easiest way of getting shit out from your braces, which depending on what you eat, you'll find yourself getting food stuck between them often.

>> No.14203465

did he really say that tho

>> No.14203469

Well, my jaw is good but not asymmetrical. Hope i don't need surgery because of that.

what did he mean by this

>> No.14205697

idk, probably that they are the best

>> No.14205713

i dont know about that, if you have a really bad underbite you might need to get that surgery where they break your jaw and put bits of metal between

i had the pain too, it was about 3 days after they replaced the wire but i could eat soft foods, just had to use my molars to break off bits of food.

i had mine for about 1,5 years, but my teeth weren't that bad beforehand.
still have the little metal wire behind my teeth, too. i don't think they're ever supposed to take that off.

If it takes 3 months it must be so mild that it should not even matter to fix. Or your orthodontist is lying.

They said it would take 2-3 years, it took 4 for me.


>> No.14206750

Probably depends on how bad they are. Braces weren't necessary but I wore them anyway, only took a few months. I barely even remember having them
