Week 37 update!
So I’ve been having doubts about my current ortho because of few reasons; like I always have one or two brackets that will come off even few days after my adjustment, and I didn’t even eat anything that was too hard. My buccal tube came off too last month and my ortho decided not to put them back because she said that my lower teeth doesn’t need to be retracted anymore, and she suggested that we focus on fixing my open bite. However, as you can see from the pictures (top is before and bottom current) my bite is not improving, for me it’s getting worse, even. She told me to stop with the triangle shaped rubber bands and she gave me the class iii elastics (the one that goes from the molar to lower canine). I’ve been using them for more than a month now (approx 20hrs a day) and it’s not doing anything 😫😫
My ortho also changed my bottom wire to 0.16 on my last adjustment, but still hasn’t glued my buccal tube back (for reason I mentioned above) and I’m getting really worried because I have seen no improvement.
What should I do? Should I just trust her or I better find another ortho?
