Hi as a child when getting my adult teeth through I had a very crowed mouth, this lead to a lot of teeth being removed to make room in my mouth, dispite this I still had very over crowed and crocked teeth. I had braces as a teenager to straighten them, they move very quickly, my dentist at the time was amazed at how quick and easy they moved. However when the braces came of they just moved back, and were “loose” if I put my tongue on the they would move in their sockets! I could feel them shift, but this was not visible to the eye, so nobody believed me, They ended up more crocked than before, it doesn’t bother me, I have grown to love my unusual nashers. I just wondered if anyone else had a similar experience?
Thanks, sound very similar, I expect the gums are softer than normal, a bit like the soft skin, my Dentist didn’t slow things down or anything, but then it is probably an advantage to him that they moved so quick, it was done on the NHS, so me being a quick case, makes room for others?. I had no idea then that I was any different from anyone else. But looking back, it all fits in! I also have very fragile gums and roof of the mouth, if I eat anything just a little crunchy,like a pack of crisps (chips in the USA) then the roof of my mouth and or gums just rubs of and is very sore, if I eat something too hot, then a larger area usually of the roof of my mouth just peels of, leaving a sore area for a few days.
Hope you have a lovely day and thank you for you reply.
