Are wired in to move one jaw toward the other like rubberbands do, most times they are for kids who won't wear their rubberbands

Every time I go to ortho I always get these springs wired in and I have 8 in my mouth right now. Usually I only have six but usually every treatment if different is some way. To be honest these springs are really annoying...and hurt my mouth alot.

Well,you should've just worn the elastics... then you wouldn't have to wear the annoyong springs!!!!

yeah they are fixed braces because fixed means stuck on your teeth

These would be nice to have. I wonder how many they could fit in your mouth
Rainier () - 03/Mar/2003 10:51:03 AM
I think the coil springs would be cool if you could romove them but if not I rather have elastic so I can pop elastic any time I want in and out to eat my favorite food...

My orthodontist refered to these things he put on my teeth, but they don't the things in the picture above. the coil is between two adjacent teeth on my upper jaw. What are they?
ellen ( ) - 26/May/2003 2:44:31 AM
ya i have those things too. they arent the same. The ones you and i have spread out two or more teeth. they put it through the archwire and its held between two brackets? yea, its called a spring too. lol

My Friend has a really bad over bite, even after he had braces for a year. Does this sound right? or did they rip him off?
