Oral? No matter what , oral is oral! Feel bad for you. Take care!
I had a sister who had that same problem, except she decided to get surgery instead. 5 years later it's like she never had an under bite. Maybe, if you want to, you can do the same thing and get surgery over braces
I googled images of massive underbites and I didn't see a single one that justified corrective surgery or even braces. Is there a medical reason you would want one? I have a fairly substantial overbite and have never had issues, so I'm curious if it's something different for underbites.
My ortho was trying to tell me to get jaw surgery, where they would essentially break my jaw, reposition it, and fuse it in place with screws. Uhm, I like how my face looks, thanks, I'm not risking fucking that up. Especially when he said it was a 75% chance my face would look significantly different.
you probably have to do this because you didn't wear a night guard like you're supposed to after you get braces
Nah, it's just a way of orthodontist getting money out of you. When you get braces they help with under bites and over bites, that's why they make a mold of your set of teeth; to find all of your flaws. Braces aren't just for crooked teeth. That's how I got my slight over bite fixed.
62- That wire you're referring to is an option. I had braces, and my orthodontist gave me a choice between the two types of retainers. One is the clear mold that you slip onto your teeth, and the other one is the one with the wires. EDIT: I misread. Feel free to thumb down.
Haha, oral hell, for you? Or for who ever you're going out with?
7: No, the exact same thing happened to me after 2 1/2 years with braces. There are 3 options to the situation: 1. Get your jaw realigned by having braces put back on 2. Get your jaw realigned by having them break it and wiring your mouth shut for weeks 3. Give up and live with the underbite I have to wait until I stop growing (18 or 19) before I can consider anything due to the possibility of the jaw repositioning itself if I do it sooner. The joys of life...
