I went for three consults for braces, one for invisalign, one for regular ceramic braces and one for lingual braces. I picked the wrong one - the lingual braces. My life is ruined, I had 3 teeth removed which has complelety changed the shape and width of my face and has moved my bone structure causing facial collaspe. It has aged me by 10 years, and taken all the balance out of my beautiful features.
These orthodontists need to tell you the real truth about what happens when teeth are extracted. I am now looking into very invasive plastic surgery and dental implants to try to get my face back. The ironic thing is plastic surgery can only make subtle changes to the face and can't truely get it back... I never would have thought dental work would make such drastic changes to the face..but why would I? None of these "professionals" ever told me, it should be their duty to inform patients of what is going to happen to their face, not just their teeth!
