I think it's usually 6 months full time, 6 months night time and then a couple of nights a week for life.

However, I started with a 13mm overject and am now down to 8mm and I am so happy with how they look, even though they're not typically 'perfect' yet. :D

Hi Neon, good luck with your treatment and hope things work out better this time! I'm in the same boat, had braces from 16-18 and didn't wear my retainers so going through it again at 22!

I'm in Guernsey (which isn't technically England) and I have one friend with ceramics (I have full metal)...which is nice as we are brace buddies and compare adjustment stories! I saw my ex last week and he has them too...we ended up swapping stories too, turns out we go to the same ortho! And last ...

I have had glasses since I was 7 and this is my second time in braces! I wear contacts on the weekend but I wear my glasses at work during the week. They are square with really chunky white arms and they are awesome! I mostly forget that I have braces so wearing both doesn't bother me. However, when...

Yesterday I skipped into the ortho's office, all excited at the possibility of him telling me nice things. HA. Here's the story... I go in, fill in a health form and get called through. He has a look in my mouth and seems to have trouble locating which teeth I had out but eventually figures out that...

Hiya Memran, I'm sure you're right...if this is happening now then it's only going to get worse right?! :D I don't remember if I had these dreams the first time round but hey, that was years ago.
