Re: Which side of your mouth do you chew on?

Before braces mainly on the right side, during braces on the left and after still on the left.

Re: $600 for the Invisible Retainer?? Is That too much

Are you talking about Essix retainers? I have always paid $75 everytime I've lost or damaged mine to get a replacement. I only remember one mold ever being taken, right after I got my braces off. So they haven't taken new impressions when you needed a new one made? It would be cool to use the debra...

Re: Sleeping with Essix Retainers

I have essix retainers and clench during the night too. I often wake up to find my jaws jammed together so hard my teeth can hurt. When I first got my essix retainers I was very worried about how they would handle my clenching but they seem to have done ok so far, no damage has been done but then ag...

Re: Gum recession?

It does look like the gums have receded some but they look healthy to me, nice and pink, not red or inflamed. I have gum recession too, I had it before braces and I'm now out of braces and it has not got any worse, in some areas the gum looks better than before. I wouldn't have thought the amount of...

Re: BraceFace2o1o's Story

I had a hygienist appointment yesterday, it was my very first one... sounds kinda gross but I was with the same dentist since a child and they didn't have a hygienist in office so it wasn't a service they offered. I didn't know what to expect but the lady was lovely and explained everything. She ask...

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

I had a deep bite, so my upper front teeth almost completely covered my lower front teeth. My ortho put my upper braces on first then 3 months later once my upper teeth had moved/straightened a bit he put on the lowers.

Re: Essix Retainers ADVICE PLEASE

I was told to use a soft toothbrush only for this purpose and antibacterial soap. I don't think just soaking in the soap and rinsing is enough. I found sometimes my lipstick gets on my retainers. If I don't scrub, it never goes away. If something I can see stays on stubborn like that, I wonder what...

Re: How Long?

I have always read that regardless of age you need to continue wearing retainers for the rest of your life, as the saying goes as long as you want your teeth to remain straight. Apparently our teeth shift throughout our whole life so I can see why a retainer is needed for a long long time to prevent...

Re: BraceFace2o1o's Story

My before and after photos. Unfortunately my before photos are a bit all over the place, some are in black and white, some are not great quality and some are small etc but that's all I could find when searching for my before pictures so I will just have to make do. http://i1164.photobucket.com/album...

Re: Veneers after braces

So, I pose this question for the boards... if you were about to be de-braced and still did not like your smile (and keeping your teeth in braces would not help) would you consider veneers? Yes I would if I could afford them. I think your teeth look great. But I know (and I'm sure many others do too...
