Question:
Will my treatment be successful? I am almost 35 yrs old.

I have had my braces on for one year one month. When I went for the initial visit, the orthodontist told me there was nothing wrong with my mouth and he could straighten my teeth. He said it would take 2 years.

I am only one year and one month into treatment and he is ready to take them off in four weeks. I keep telling him my teeth are not straight, but he says they are. I am quite upset. I have spent a lot of time, money, and some pain. I have dreamed of having really great teeth for a very long time.

Are my teeth really going to look that great in 4 more weeks? There are still gaps, canines are still not standing straight up. Most of all, my 2 top teeth still slant. ....Visitor from IN

Answer:
I can't comment on the positioning of your teeth, because I don't have any pictures to compare, however I would highly suggest getting a second opinion from a reputable orthodontist in your area.

If you still have spaces in between the teeth and you are not happy with the angulation of the front teeth, I find it unlikely your treatment will be completed in four weeks.
