Bonding cost

Hi guys,

Does anyone know about how much it costs to have bonding done to a couple of teeth that have black triangles?

Getting used to a retainer

Hi guys. I'm had my braces removed on Tuesday (yay!). I have been wearing my retainers but I think I may never get used to talking with them in. I sound terrible.
Do you really get used to talking with your retainers in and eventually sound normal?
Thanks.

I chose my ortho because that is the one my insurance paid for. If I had a choice, I would look for an ortho that was used to having adult patients. It seems a lot of orthos are used to having kids as patients and the kids don't ask quesions. Adults have lots of questions and this can annoy some ort...

Hi SmileyCat, I can't see why they would make you keep the braces on if you are getting an infection. http://fc05.deviantart.com/fs41/f/2009/014/4/0/___confusion____by_forestsofazarath.gif I know how it is with the sore, though. I had a sore in my cheek that got really bad. I thought it might get in...

wow, where were you all last year? I got one lower bottom tooth pulled because of severe lower crowding and I was absolutely fearful of making this decision. (my teeth looked similar to the ortho's website #9 posted in this thread) Now, 11 months later, the gap is still not closed. I was told it wo...

Hi Ken :)

I like my teeth better now then when the molds were taken so I hope the retainer can be adjusted.

Just wanted to chime in. I can poke my tongue almost in a lower molar too. My de-band date is June 16th.
My bite feels ok but I was wondering about that, myself.

Question about tooth movement after molds for retainer made.

I will be getting my braces off in about 3 weeks. At my last appointment (a week and a half ago) my ortho took molds of my teeth and then put back in the finishing wire and added power chains on both upper and lower teeth. Since then my teeth have moved more. Actually, I think they are in a better p...
