I often don't see my orthodontist. I've had him since I was 6 but I just moved back to canada and started having him treat me again. In a year of working with him, I have seen him exactly twice. Once on my first meeting to set up how long they would need to finish braces and then when we requested t...

My changes weren't as dramatic. I only had an underbite and now my chin doesn't stick out as much. There might of been other changes but it is hard to tell since I've had my braces on since I was around 13/14 and now I'm 16 about to get them off. My face might of been different if I didn't get brace...

Finally! Someone who shares my opinions. This is the argument that I use with my mother all the time. I don't really think my braces are worth it.

Welcome! I always hated eating after I have an adjustment done the day before. I find it takes a few hours for the pain to kick in straight after an adjust. so I tend to eat my dinner as soon as I get out of my ortho office since my appointments are usually in the after noon. Soup and ice cream are ...

Okay I haven't read all your story yet, but I'm planning to. I had to pause at the getting eight teeth removed in one day part. You stayed awake for it? When I had my seven removed they had to knock me out for it. I would not of been able to stay awake during that. Even the dentist completely freaks...

Welcome!

I would suggest calling your ortho before you make the drive out there, to see if there is anything else you could try to get them in.

I personally don't remember my experience with my spacers, so I can't give any advice towards that.

Almost to the end of the braces road...

but if there is another bump in it, I'm going to scream. My next ortho appointment is on Feb. 3 and this is supposed to be the one where we book my appointment to get them off. It all started with my underbite. Okay, technically I can go back farther it started because I wouldn't pull out my baby te...

I can't remember a change in my bottom teeth (underbite) when I first got my braces on, but if you are really worried about it mention it to your ortho. He should then probably explain all the steps your going to go through. My second ortho told me all the things they were planning on doing when I g...

well I got my bottom braces on first and when I first so my smile after it didn't really bother me because my bottom lip ended up covering most of the bracket. But about an hour after getting them on I was upset. The brackets rubbed and chaffed, the wax wouldn't stay on, the loop of metal around my ...
