I got my braces at the same time as you did and had teeth extracted too. I just had my first set of power chains mounted this week and I see that you're already on your 3rd set. I wonder if my ortho could have started me on them earlier. I don't think there was any movement after my last adjustment ...

Brackets installed 5 months later

Hi, I've had my braces for 4 months now and at my last adjustment my ortho. told me that I'll be getting brackets installed on the 4 rear most molars on the next visit. I always did wonder why I didn't have brackets there but it wasn't a big deal, and as far as I was concerned the less brackets the ...

I hate to say it but my wife isn't very supportive about me getting my braces. She kept saying it was a waste of money. It got to a point where I got really upset with her and told her straight out not to say anything about it anymore. :x Since then she hasn't said a word about it but I know what sh...

I work in HR so I got clear all around. I wouldn't consider it "chickening out" as someone has coined it. The decision was a matter of work environment and aesthetics of having clear. Everyone has there reasons but you better be sure that's what you want.

I had my braces mounted in June and I had some Japanese curry the same night. The ligs stained first day I got them, it was worth it though that curry was good :P Now that they're stained I don't worry about what food I eat will stain it.

how many teeth do you have left?

Hi, I've had my braces for almost 2 months now and last week I had 4 teeth (bicuspids) extracted. This left me with 24 teeth and I realized now that's below the average number of teeth. I'm confident in my orthodontist's decision on extracting the teeth but there does seem to be large gaps now and I...

I had 4 bicuspids taken out last Friday, surprisingly it wasn't painful during or after. The oral surgeon was done in about 5 minutes, I couldn't believe how fast it was.

I'm left with 24 teeth now and I'm wondering how many teeth do you guys have after your extraction?
