Re: Painful bump on inside of top jaw.

He said it was a periodontal flare due to food getting stuck and causing some inflammation. He cleaned it and gave me some anti-biotics for ten days. He also gave me some pain killers because my word, this thing is painful.

Painful bump on inside of top jaw.

About a week ago, I noticed the gum between two of my upper last molars got a little tender to the touch. I made nothing of it and continued on as per usual. However, yesterday I noticed the gum area leading to the roof of my mouth is swollen and painful. It is quite painful to swallow and I can't e...

Re: Be Careful if you drink tea

Boy have I learned my lesson with tea. I drank so much before that my teeth became really really stained.....after I got roughed up from both my dentist and orthodontist I scheduled a cleaning. I was soooo happy that my teeth looked human again that I switched from black tea to tea with a little mil...

Re: wished i never got braces

I wouldn't worry. After my first month my teeth looked immaculate. After that, everthing is all over the place. Today I get up, big space at the bottom. Tomorrow the top looks a little weird compared to yesterday. I look out for comments everytime I go to see my ortho, but I get nothing....and somet...

Re: when do visits get easier?

Hi hi...I will be a bit off, but I also had an incisor removed and ever since my bottom teeth are really really sensitive. It's been ten months since and I still squirm and sweat like a horse in the chair. Sometimes it's pain, sometimes it's discomfort. All in all, I try to tell myself it will be ov...

Re: orotho appointment from hell

I can co-sign here. My appointments now seem to be a tad bit worse than they use to be in the earlies. I usually leave the chair sweating because many times my teeth are still achey from the last adjustment. I am still to get use to adjustments.

Re: Elastics...are they always this tight?

mine are actually Super Strong. The pain is minimal now...but even though he told me to take them out for brushing only, I take them out while eating because it's just not possible for me to eat properly with them. They are sooooo annoying....Yikes

Elastics...are they always this tight?

Soooo today I got elastics put in for the first time. I have it on my right side only and it is terrifying. LOL. The assistant was sooooo grouchy today, she just gave me a mirror to see what she was doing when putting them in, gave me some extras and that's it. Ummmm....I dunno what's going on here,...

Re: Shelby's Story :)

Omg. Soooo today I finally have something different happen since the last time I posted. Well my teeth were in top shape for the last few months, however I realised a few weeks ago, one of the bottom incisors began shifting away from the others on the left and created a space. Now it looks like it a...

Re: Anyone else started clenching their teeth since braces?

Oh yes. I do that now, since I have in the braces. I don't know what causes it, but sometimes I unclench at night and feel the pain from unknowingly having it clamped down for some time. I do it as well during waking hours especially when I'm concentrating on something really hard. It's painful when...
