So I freaking snapped a wire in my bottom teeth.

I'm beginning to freak out. My ortho is 6 hours away AND it's a Sunday.

My bottom teeth are beginning to hurt. Ugh. :(

Wow your progress seems absolutely amazing. I know the latest pictures you posted you don't see a lot of progress. However, as a newcomer and seeing your pre-braces and the latest pictures, all I can say is WOW.

Good luck with the rest of your journey! :)

I voted other. I was initially scared of pain but whatever, I got over it. I'm scared of snapping a bracket. I don't want to add on any more months to my term. I live 6 hours away from my ortho. I got my braces on in my hometown but I go to school in a different city. I'm so afraid I'm going to brea...

My Story

I've been looking around this message board for a few days and I thought I'd join in on the fun. I'm going to have braces for a while so might as well keep track of it. I don't really have anything "wrong" with my teeth. No overbite, crowding, etc. I guess it's for cosmetic reasons. I want to feel c...

I went out and bought a Waterpik Ultra the other day. First thing, it makes such a mess! :P I think the walls are probably more clean then I am in the end lol I'm a wee bit weary of how effective it is. I first use the Waterpik and then afterwards I will still floss the old fashioned way. I'm a bit ...

I use Crest Whitestrips Premium. My teeth are super white and I get compliments on them all the time. I'm so sad that I have braces now so I can't whiten my teeth :( But yeah, Crest Whitestrips Premium are great. You're supposed to work them twice daily for 14 days. I usually used them once a day be...
