Fuck Orthodontics, the "solution" to the problem of improper facial development that gives you an overbite is to keep pulling teeth and pushing the remaining teeth closer together while your face gets more and more elongated. Who the fuck thought this was the best solution? You get braces, come back a couple years later and they tell you "It's not looking good, hmm, looks like we're gonna have to pull 4 more teeth to make space lol"

Make space? Make space by ripping out teeth instead of attempting to widen the palate so you can actually fit the 32 teeth literally every human on earth is born with?

So when a face droops and gets narrow, the solution is to remove teeth till you've got few enough to fit in the shitty elongated, narrow face with bad development, and try and force the jaw forward unnaturally with rubber bands? Garbage facial growth is never questioned or even thought about, you could walk into the office mouthbreathing and no one would bat a fucking eye. It's like they don't care how your face develops. The years where your face is the most malleable, you have no idea what proper tongue posture is, and the orthodontist treatments make it HARDER instead of easier to have correct oral posture.

Fuck orthodontics. Kids should visit yearly to an orthotropics expert that evaluates their breathing posture, and sees if their facial growth is going well.

It's not too late, but it would be so much better to have known this shit when I was 12 instead of now. Holy shit.
Here's a little poll..

Capitalism. Doesn't matter if we pollute the planet or destroy people face, the question is if it sells $$$, $mile $ells (you only need to hide the impact on facial beauty or just be as ill-informed as the general population)

Agree
I broke 4 teeth from a fall, maybe that's why I have a shitty maxilla

I don't think braces are that bad as long as you're not getting them because of a narrow palate.

The issue is when they begin pulling teeth to "make space". That is a sign that the face is not developing properly, and instead of scheduling teeth for pulling a few weeks later down the road, they should immediately schedule a weekly trip to an orthotropics expert, in hopes of reversing the negative growth. I agree that braces can be fine in some cases, but so many goddamn times do they result in having to pull teeth after, and that's a sign that the face has continued to grown poorly, even if the teeth are straighter.

Once you have to pull teeth because of braces you're going in the wrong direction. I had to get braces because I had 3 missing teeth that I wasn't born with so the other teeth got too spaced out. Although I wonder if proper oral posture still could've made them fit more properly in their places.

Right now I have a retainer behind my two front teeth and I think it might be interfering with my oral posture (I haven't really figured out where the tip of my tounge should be) but from what I understand getting the posterior third of the tounge up on the palate is the most important and tounge tip position might not be crucial.
