During my bracing period, black triangles started forming. Ortho sanded the teeth but there's still minor triangles. Will gums fill this space?

During my bracing period, black triangles started forming. Ortho sanded the teeth but there's still minor triangles. Will gums fill this space?

Ask: Has your orthodontic treatment been completed? How long ago were your teeth trimmed? At a young age and with proper orthodontic treatment, the gums will probably fill in, especially if the trimming was done very recently. This is a question that should be definitely brought to the attention of your dentist. My guess is that you will be happy with the answer. ...Read more

Will braces leave my teeth stained? I have a friend who had hers off, and there are little square marks where you can tell the brackets were. Is this unavoidable?


.

Yes, : Yes, those marks are avoidable. First the dentist can seal the teeth before the brackets go on, then he can use cement that emits flouride. Most important is your own homecare. You must carefully remove all plaque that will cling to the enamel in "the shadow" of the brackets. Of you do this every night before bed you can look forward to unstained teen when the braces come off. ...Read more

I am getting braces in 5 more days. But i am quite afraid that after i remove my braces, it will have braces marks because my teeth not very white now?

Not from braces: Braces don't scar teeth. Bacteria do. Ask your Orthodontist for specific instructions, and follow them to the letter. Keep teeth immaculately clean (braces shine when they're clean) to prevent scarring next to the braces. Don't cheat, don't eat hard/sticky/chewy foods that can partially dislodge braces to prevent scarring behind the braces. Follow instructions to the letter, you'll be OK. ...Read more

Why do my teeth wobble with my braces on?

Dr. LaMont Gee Dr. Gee
4 doctors agreed:
Why do my teeth wobble with my braces on?

Braces: Moving teeth orthodontically involves putting a small amount of pressure on the teeth. This causes them to loosen slightly until the bone supporting the teeth remodels around the tooth in its new position. The process continues until teeth reach their final position and they are allowed to tighten with the help of retainers. This is a normal process. If you have concerns talk to the orthodontist. ...Read more
