Re: I SHOULD BE DEAD!

Thanks to everyone for their replies. Everyday get a little better!
Dezlorelle,
I'm surprised you didn't hear about it. It happened on the Amtrak/Septa line in Cornwell Heights heading to 30th St.

Re: I SHOULD BE DEAD!

Thank You Dr. Tam.

Elle,
I was going to post something on MYBRACES but haven't gotten to it yet. You can send me a PM if you have questions about the laser eye surgery. I didn't have it done but my wife did! Thanks for your concern!

I SHOULD BE DEAD!

Hey Guys, I haven't been on here in a while as my braces journey ended in February. But my life forever changed on April 12th. I've been slowly posting in forums that I subscribe to to give a brief account of what happened to me to help me deal with it. I was waiting on a train platform on April 12t...

I'm FREEEEE!!!! Sort of!

Well after 22 months, two weeks and 1 day, my braces are off! It's really an odd feeling to me to see my teeth straight without the braces. I had crooked teeth for so long, they now look foreign to me. I say sort of because I had permanent retainers placed. They're going to take a little getting use...

Re: February Debrace Club

Just got mine off about an hour ago!!! I had permanent retainers placed and had molds done for my essex. The really look strange (different) to me, kinda foreign. I had crooked teeth for so long, it doesn't seem like its real yet. I'm thrilled with the results!

THURSDAY IS MY BIG DAY!

Well its been over 22 months and I'm finally getting these suckers off on Thursday at high noon. I can't wait! I had molds done at my last appointment for permanent retainers on top and bottom. Once they are placed, my ortho is going to get a second set of molds for essix retainers as well. Has any ...

Any Feedback on Zoom Whitening???

Hey guys,
I'll be getting my braces off two weeks from tomorrow! I was wondering if anyone can give me advice, tips, and so on, on Zoom whitening? I plan on getting it done right after the braces come off. Thanks for any replies!

Re: How do you keep your teeth white? can we use baking soda

I guess I'll be responding to your posts on here as well as the Iphone App! I use A&H baking soda all the time. I usually use colgate whitening on my brush then sprinkle it with the baking soda. I've been doing this for as long as I can remember. My teeth are very white with no stains. Although, I'm...

Re: Female / 24 / UK - Getting Fixed Braces

Chrystal,
I just looked at your pic comparison. I think you should take a better look! Your teeth have moved quite a bit. Look at your incisors and canines! Also look at the overall change in the alignment of your molars. I think you are making great progress!

Re: Underbite treatment

I would think your ortho wanted your top palate expanded in some way either from true expansion if your young enough and your palatine bones haven't fused yet or more of a tipping of your teeth. If you state your QH was only in for a short time I don't see how either is possible. As for your under b...

Re: Palate Expander and Speech Problems

It will definitely get better. I found that if I just slowed my speech a little and concentrated on my pronunciation, I sounded so much better. The eating part is a little trickier. I found that if a cut everything into smaller pieces, it was that much smaller after I chewed it. Also, I tried to get...

A LITTLE BAD NEWS ;-(

So, Ive been anticipating my debanding date of January the 20th. My ortho told me today that I would have to wait an additional two weeks from that appointment date to get them off. They will take molds for the essex ratainers and the permanent retainers at that time. The earliest they could get me ...
