My small ranting and A - "have you ever done this?- que

I had my 15th adjustment today. I had a feeling things were not moving real fast. The extraction gaps on the top have hardly closed any since my last adjustment. I also have gaps that have formed between my molars that have not closed any, plus the top molars have rotated some. Soo - at my next adju...

Congrats on getting your braces!

The glue will fail sometimes, I had one pop off on day three of my braces. Mine came off about 2am in the morning. I didnt know what the pop was til the next morning.

I think i have eaten almost everything on the no no list. Most things can be eaten if you do it careful. I love popcorn. I eat small amounts and be careful to stay away from the old maids. It does really make a mess in the braces but i dont mind the extra cleanup time as long as i can eat some every...

I have never really had any pain from the elastics. Its more of a constant pressure. They are more annoying than painful. I have bought colored ones from JawProducts. They are great to deal with

They then changed them to front top and front bottom in a triangle pattern, for two months. Then it was back to the original ones which i have been in since. So I am now starting my ...

What will you do with your braces?

As i get closer to the end of my treatment( only 6 months to go -fingers crossed) i got to thinking what has everyone done with their braces? If you have already had your braces removed, did you keep them? If you still have them have you thought about keeping them or do you just want to be totally r...

The problem with the morgan bumpers is that - they are really flexable. I think thats why I had trouble with them staying on the brackets. I sure hope the ones you will have will work because i think the idea behind them is excellent. Its getting them to stay put - especially with all the different ...

I have class 2 elastics. I have had them for about 3.5 months. I did really notice any changes till around the end of the second month, when I noticed the top teeth were starting to contact the lower brackets when biting.

I have the same thing happening with the top teeth hitting the brackets. It looks like we have the same elastics. Mine started hitting about two months after i got my elastics. I hadnt thought about the teeth wearing from them hitting the brackets. Now you have me worried! I will be sure to ask abou...
