I used the "Advanced" for many years and replaced it this past January with an "Elite". I'm very happy with the "Elite" and I feel that it was well worth the cost. :D

Karley, I'm very glad that the endo appt. went well. My regular dentist put the crown on as well. If you are not happy with your current dentist, by all means ask the endo for a recommendation. I was skeptical of what the first ortho told me (at the initial consultaion, he measured how wide I could ...

Ouch!! That sounds like a rough root canal! I hope the endodontist visit goes better! I was impressed by the one I was sent to and I would go back to this guy anytime. My step-mom was advised that I needed braces as a kid but her take on it was that vitamins will cure absolutely anything - therefore...

Were you in pain with your spacers the entire time? Did you find a way to deal with it (other than when they were removed)? I'm allergic to Ibuprofin and aspirin. The Tylenol just doesn't cut it!! :cry:

Welcome Brodie!

I've been told by my ortho that single-root teeth move much much faster than multi-root teeth (molars).

My ortho says that his patients tell him the spacers are the worst part of the process. :( The pain I had yesterday seems to have gone away. The "itchy" feeling still remains and is driving me nuts yet. Tonight I noticed that my lower front teeth are even more crowded than usual - so the spacers are...

Spacers - OUCH!!!!

The spacers (7 of them) were installed today. They were a very tight fit and I'm positively going bonkers with them in! I picked up some Anbesol after work today and that is helping to reduce the "itchy" feeling. I've been told by many people that this is typically the worst part and that after a fe...

Spacers tomorrow!!

Tomorrow I get my spacers (at 10:45 a.m. to be exact). I'm excited! This is the first step of getting the much anticipated braces installed! I can't wait to find out the exact date I get braced! I've been dreading and anticipating this moment for a long time and finally, it is almost here!! After to...
