I was a patient of Dr Trammell’s for many years, starting at age 11. I first had braces prior to my teen years for approximately 1.5 years. After my braces were removed and I continued to wear my retainer, the teeth in my lower jaw weren’t straight and I had braces put on my lower teeth for the second time. The second set of braces were removed and I was issued another removable retainer to wear at night, which I did. My bottom teeth were never straight even after having two sets of braces, even though I wore removable retainers. Despite this, Dr Trammell pronounced my orthodontic treatment to be completed. I continued to wear my retainers at night. A few years after being dismissed as Dr Tranmell’s patient, I still had crooked lower teeth. I saw him again, when he examined my teeth and gave me another $4,000 estimate for a third set of braces (my family had already paid him $4000+ to correct my teeth).
I’m now 19 and I have irreversible wear on my lower teeth due to misalignment.
