Last yr, I opted to get the latest- and supposedly stronger (incognito) braces for hopefully the last time in my life (3X now!): A serious accident when I was little- left my face & teeth crooket & misaligned. I'm not delusional that my problem can be corrected w/braces, but there had been significant visible progress made w/my last 'more traditional' treatment in a matter of 3mths, so I was only hoping for these new braces to level out my teeth again- not my face. Excited about this new & very expensive tx, I decided to document my progress via digital photos. To my dismay, my teeth has actually gotten progressively worse ever since a bracket came off almost 1/2yr now, and my ortho has refused to put it back on- making excuses that I did not need it- when I obviously do. Please advise.
