My whole life, I have had notable spaces between my lower front teeth. Remarkably, all my gaps have nearly closed in a matter of 3 1/2 months and I am very pleased with how much wider my lower jaw is now. However, I just noticed how I chipped nearly all of my bottom canine tip off, as it rotated from the outside of my upper canine to the inside of it. Really this seemed unavoidable, but I was wondering if anyone else had any similar experiences and if so, what they did about it. Either way, I am willing to trade nice teeth for a nice face lol.
Good to know. I think this is why Mew creates that "anterior open bite" to avoid incisoral interference. It's pretty insane. Back in April, my whole left jaw was caved inwards in the classic V-shape and now its nearly a perfect U. My upper lip has advanced quite a bit in front of the lower, whereas they used to be even with each other. Fortunately I have always breathed nasally (through the day at least), but I was definitely at risk of developing Class III Malocclusion. Can't wait till my last gap fills in and my wisdom teeth finish erupting!
