It so happened that the female line in my family has one tooth on the upper jaw of the curve. It is interesting, but this feature was with my great-grandmother, grandmother, mother and, accordingly, with me. Yes, and in the lower jaw teeth were not particularly smooth.
As a child, my mother took me to a dentist and he passed verdict brackets. We came to the reception and I bit the specialist when he tried to make a cast of the jaw, the doctor said that it would be better for me not to come again. I, of course, was not particularly upset. As it turned out, for good reason.
Then I was 9 years old. At 16, my parents decided to seriously take up my teeth. They were healthy and strong, but they were crooked and sometimes I was complexes about my smile.
We opened a clinic near the house and when she came for another examination and cleaning of the stone, the doctors recommended their orthodontist. When I did a jaw radiography, the doctor said that thank God I didn’t set brackets at 9 years old.
I would pass with them, my teeth aligned, but when the wisdom teeth would get in, the main teeth twisted again. My wisdom teeth got out at 15, so now the brackets could be set with a clear conscience.
At first I put them on the lower jaw, after 2 weeks on the upper. At first it was painful, not familiar and not comfortable. Probably even complex, but now, honestly, I don’t remember it.
Once a month went to the correction. I wore them for 2 years. When the long-awaited moment finally came and they took it off for me, there was no limit to joy. The teeth really became even and perfect. The doctor gave me a record for the night so that I would support my teeth. Since the bite is also corrected.
I wore kappa for a year, then I forgot. Half a year later, the upper tooth, the very one from which the brackets were placed, slightly twisted, but not by much. When she decided to wear a mouthguard, it was too late. She did not suit me.
It’s been 8 years. The upper tooth is still out slightly from the line and not on the same level with the rest of the jaw. But he is still equal. The rest of the teeth are all one to one and everyone compliments me on the smile.
As for my opinion, yes, two years, this is a long, very long time. But the result is worth it. So do not hesitate and put brackets, if possible. Because pleasure is not cheap, but the result will please you.
