I am undergoing orthodontic treatment. Initially, brackets were placed on my teeth and then today a bite opener has been installed below my upper teeth. I cannot talk clearly and am unable to eat. This is unremovable and have been told that this has to stay in place for 5 months. Please advise if this is normal and if there are any alternate methods of handling this instead of this bite opener.

Now my crowns look very long and ugly, and have a protruding and a bulky look.My facial expressions look strained. Unable to close my lips because of protruding front teeth. I have an i...
