Re: brackets too close to the gumline

I do. I have pictures on my blog where I think you can see. Some of my bottom teeth are really small so the bracket basically takes up the whole tooth. I just try to brush the best I can. My dentist and my ortho both say I am doing good at keeping them clean.

Re: Things braces make more difficult...

Ahhh... I have the same issues as you. The ketchup thing is really annoying. Or biting your nails. I'm not really a biter but if you have a hang nail or something... impossible.

Re: Shy Smiles

Well congrats on taking on the braces life. I am a year in and I'm hoping to be done soon... not likely though. I have a blog with pics if you want to see my progression. I too had an overbite and crowding.

Re: PHOTO OF MY TEETH! About to get braces off, need your ad

How about you tell your ortho about this. It is obvious you don't want the compliments from the people on the board. I think they look amazing and you should relax. If you are really that unhappy about them tell your ortho.

Re: 14 Months 1 Week

Very impressive! You and I must have got our braces on within weeks of each other. I am getting super antsy for the whole thing to be done. What was your original estimate for length of treatment? Hope the rest of the time flies by! My original was between 18 and 24 months. I don't think I will mak...

Everything is looking good in my mouth right now and I am so happy. So here are some pictures from my first day braced compared ...

Re: Angry ram?

These are my angry rams... I don't think they are super strong. They are just pulling my jaw forward a tiny bit more.

Re: Elephants in my mouth

Elephants? That's the elastics right? I have angry rams haha. I started a new post about the different animal pictures on elastics.. I would love to know what they are for. I think it's hilarious they put angry animals on the package. Good luck!

Angry ram?

So I got my springs taken off (see blog or previous posts) and now I am in elastics for the finishing touches of jaw stuff. I was just curious, does everyone have a different angry animal on their elastics bag? I have an angry ram, I've heard of other animals too. Is this just showing the strength o...

Re: No pain yet...

Wow that's great! I had soreness the first day I was braced then all out freaking pain for the following couple days. Now I get random soreness sometimes... It's nothing as bad as the first day though. I'm sure it's normal that you don't feel pain though. I think everyones mouth is just different. w...

Re: Dissatisfaction with braces after one year

Wow that seems like a lot. I have to be honest with you though, my molars still don't touch almost a year and a half in. We are working on pulling my jaw forward now then he says we will pull the molars down. My teeth still hit too in the front. I think this is all just a natural process of braces. ...
