Re: RHOyally Braced's Journey of a Lifetime

Hello everyone!!! Its been a while since I've updated my progress. I've gotten pretty far in my journey. Since December when I last posted, I've been in elastics to close my overbite, had some IPR to my 2 front teeth to make room for them to shift and move. I also had IPR on the bottom in order to n...

Re: Does having Braces make you feel cool?

Suprisingly, I smile a whole lot more with my braces than I did without. I guess its the confidence I've gained with having my teeth straght. I have more to go, but I'm quite fine with it.

Re: How to be sexy braced

Like others have said, My braces have given me more confidence. Since my teeth are straighter, I tend to smile more. I go out a little more than before, and I'm trying to better my appearance than I used to. Frankly, I think my braces enhance me, its a conversation piece, although I will look much b...

Re: Is it possible for crowded teeth to move?

It is entirely possible for crowded teeth to move. My 2 upper front teeth were overlapping and so were all 8 of my front bottom teeth. I've had my braces in for 6 months and with a little help from my ortho shaving down some of my teeth, they are pretty much straight. I still have some gaps but I st...

Re: Awake during extractions?

I had all 4 of my wisdoms taken out under local. They numbed me up better than if you would get a filling (I was living in Hawaii at the time, so that's all they do if you aren't in Honolulu.) I stared at the surgeon the whole time, it was a little weird. 2 of my wisdoms needed to come out and the d...

Re: 4 Extractions at one go

I had all 4 wisdom's removed at one time. Its not that bad, actually it eliminates having to go back, and having the same pain multiple times.

Re: What to do during the braces process?

My dentist's office has tvs in every room with cable. They give you the remote, so I think I watched either Rachael Ray or the View. (don't remember which one)

Re: Unexpected Changes?

Most definately!! Before I got my braces, my two front teeth overlapped badly. When I got my braces put on, the wire they used was so crooked, but within a month it straightened out. My front teeth straightened out, and my lower ones started to uncrowd. I've had some shaving done, so now I have gaps...

Re: Least visible elastic color (colour) for ceramic and met

The darker colors don't stain as much as the lighter ones do. I've had navy, royal blue, christmas tree green, and sparkly purple, and they didn't stain enough to tell. BTW, I eat a lot of marinara sauce, and drink gallons of tea on a daily basis.

Re: Did you get all of your upper and lower put on all at on

I got mine put on at the same time, but originally my ortho was only going to put on my upper brackets because the space between my upper and lower teeth would not fit the lower brackets without chipping my teeth.

Re: What must we 'never' eat

I almost eat everything I used to, mostly just no nuts or really hard or chewy things. Not fun, because my favorite things to eat are M&M peanuts and sour power straws. I just keep a glass of warm water nearby and my proxibrush close. Haven't broken a bracket yet.

Re: Dent and stain from overlapped teeth... Help!!

Had the same thing, a normal dental cleaning will get rid of it. My hygenist goes around the wire when she does my cleaning.

Re: Eating Is Hard For How Long?

I've had my braces for about 5 months now. The first day, I actually had some pasta (cooked softer than Al dente) and it hurt a little. I just jumped into eating what I normally ate even through the pain the first few days though. It got easier to eat some things, but I still cut stuff up and stick ...

Re: RHOyally Braced's Journey of a Lifetime

FINALLY, I've got a full metal grin!!! :tingrin: Had an appointment last Friday, where the ortho removed and replaced some of my brackets, and then put my bottom molar brackets on. I swear it felt like day one all over again. The pain went away after about a day or so, but now it feels funny to bite...
