Re: Ceramic braces too bulky?

I also have the 'Invu' Ceramic on my top teeth and at first I thought, 'OMG these are HUGE'! but after a couple of weeks I was totally used to them...yes, they are still quite noticeable...I started off with a white wire but the white coating just wore off so I went with a metal wire....people DO no...

Re: Bottom incisor removal tomorrow! eek.....

Thanks for all your messages of support everyone! So...it's done! It wasn't anywhere near as awful as i'd imagined it to be. I couldn't believe how fast he removed it....I had visions of him tugging at it for hours :roll: ...My appointment was at 10am and I was walking out of there by 20 past! :shoc...

Re: Is it common to get just top braces at first visit?

I got ceramics on the top 18 weeks ago and don't get my bottoms (metal) until september 9th! My Ortho wanted to see how my top teeth straightened out first...not really sure why to be honest but I have total faith in him! This process takes as long as it takes....I want as close to perfection as pos...

Re: How did you tell people???

I said I wasn't going to tell anyone apart from my husband (obviously!) and my sister....but I couldn't contain myself and told practically everyone who would listen! Some people are only just noticing now and I'm 18 weeks in with ceramics on the top.

Re: Ortho Not Being Truthful?

My Ortho hasn't really said how long I'll be braces for and I haven't even asked! Maybe I should, but to be honest, I'm so relaxed about this whole process and just happy to be sorting things out that it really doesn't bother me....It takes as long as it takes and If I'm 100% happy with the end resu...

Re: Bottom incisor removal tomorrow! eek.....

Tooth removal cancelled! :evil: I got there ready to get this over and done with and the dentist will not remove the tooth because the receptionists have mislaid the letter from my Ortho with the instructions on which tooth is to be removed! I know which tooth is to come out but he would not do it w...

Re: New Member - struggling with braces!

It WILL get easier! I'm about 4 months in and get my bottom brace put on next month...If I'm eating out I always carry a bottle of water in my bag and have a good swill around after I eat...that usually works. I always carry a little bag containing a toothbrush, paste, Interdental brushes and a smal...

Bottom incisor removal tomorrow! eek.....

I know....I'm being a baby! This is the bit I have been dreading! I have overcrowded bottom teeth so got to make some room to move things around! Bottom brace will be put on 9th september at my next appointment. Luckily you can't see my bottom teeth too much so I'm hoping the huge gap I'll have to s...

Re: How long does each visit to the orthodontist last?

I'm in the chair literally 5 minutes! I have total confidence in my Ortho....he doesn't mess around and just gets the job done! He always has time for a chat though if I want to ask him a few questions. :wink:
