Re: 2nd day w/Braces...literally crying...need advice

Hi there Crazy4Snow! I'm sorry the pain is so bad for you, but be reassured that it will get better. I too could not believe the amount of pain involved with these braces. My son got braces a couple months before me, so I was able to talk to him about it. Basically, he told me to stop whining and su...

Re: Lig colours (colors)

Cathy....you can check out the smoke ligs on "Lynn's Orthodontic Journal". Click on "photos page". I think they look pretty good on ceramics.

Thanks for the info Jude :lol: . I have an adjustment next week, so I will try out the smoke chains and see how they do.

Re: Lig colours (colors)

Anyone have any experience with the "smoke" powerchains? I have ceramic braces and got tired of the staining of the lighter color elastics, so I have been using red and hot pink lately. I am real tired of the bright colors and wish to change to something less noticeable. I see that Lynn used them an...

OMG...I have had the worst headaches the past couple weeks. I KNOW it's my teeth because of where the pain starts. I do agree with you jensceana73 ...."GOD MOTHER AWFUL". I would be interested to hear if any one else has had this problem, and what, or if anything was done by the ortho....as in slowi...

Mine flaired out like that too several months ago. I got a power chain on the whole top arch to bring it back in....FUN! Don't let any iced liquids get on those new elastics if you DO end up getting them! It tightens them up in an instant, and causes the worst pain I have ever felt!! http://bestsmil...

I got purple! It's a darker shade than yours, but I like it a lot! It's not visible to anyone but me, but it's a start. No more yellow for me, girlie!!

Hey Cathy! I think you have finally convinced me to get a colored powerchain at my adjustment today. I have ceramic brackets, and have a clear power chain on the bottom...just on the left side to move 2 teeth over. It looks yucky yellow! I think I would prefer to look down there and see a little pur...

I have SL brackets, but I have been asked a couple times if I wanted to add some color to my braces. The ligs go around your brackets instead of holding the wire on - as with non SL braces. My son gets a different color on his braces at each visit. Just ask them at your next appt., and see what they...

I think that would be a great idea to get a second opinion! Imagine how many hours you would be "waiting" if you have your braces on for 2 years! How long would you have to wait for an emergency appointment? If I have a pokey wire or something that hurts, I call my ortho in the morning, and can be s...

I had the tooth indentation on my lower lip all the time...for years. I always wondered what it would be like...or how it would feel to not have those teeth sticking out so much. It wasn't really uncomfortable because that's all I ever knew, just embarrassing. I don't have that problem any more with...
