Re: Anyone here ever get any bonding done on your teeth??

I too was thinking of having some bonding after the braces are removed. Does anyone know if you would need to get new retainers after the bonding? I'm guessing they wouldn't fit once your tooth shape has been made slightly different?

specialist registar not orthodontist?..

Hi- sorry long post... I posted a while back about my NHS orthodontist who was extremely rough with me so I asked if I could change orthodontists. The last 2 appointments I have seen another lady who is a lot nicer and gentle but I have a few concerns.. Firstly I feel like my upper teeth are getting...

Re: my Ortho is so rough with me

I was completely in the same boat as you before hand. I never really realised my bite was so bad I just thought my lower teeth were really crooked. I had the herbst in for 8 months. I do think it has probably helped with the overjet so I guess in that respect it's good. I hope it works out for you a...

Re: my Ortho is so rough with me

This sounds awful! You poor thing! I think I would definately not opt to have the herbst back in if I were you. I guess the best option would be to see how you feel when you get to a certain stage in the braces and decide if you are happy enough having an overjet or if you want the surgery. To be ho...

Re: my Ortho is so rough with me

The new ortho is really nice and so gentle! She actually talks to me and explains parts of my treatment! This is great- makes me realise just how bad the last one was! Thanks for asking. I'm sorry to hear you are having bad joint pain one side. Has this got any better since you last posted? I didn't...

Hey Ally, Sorry it has taken so long for me to reply! I am pretty pleased with the final results of the herbst. I hated my face shape when they first put it in and it took a few weeks or more for me to get use to the new look. I think alot of the initial negative changes were due to swelling so that...

Thank you so much for all the replies. I am still feeling pretty shaky this morning. I am quite surprised at myself because I am usually a bit tougher then this. I have decided I am going to go in and ask if they will switch me to the other orthodontist who works at the practice. My trouble is I am ...

my Ortho is so rough with me

Hi guys, I went in for my herbst removal today and I know it was never going to be a plesant experience but my ortho seems to forget I am a person not a machine. He managed to slip with his drill while he was drilling it off and drilled a really deep hole under my tongue (about 3mm). He then shouted...

My Ortho never even mentioned flossing as part of the talk on how to clean your teeth with braces. He just told me to brush for 5 mins and use an interdental brush. Is it normal for the gums to bleed when you floss? Is this something that gets better the more you floss? My gums are a little sore bet...

I have had really random timings between my appointments. The first was 6 weeks, 2nd 8 weeks, 3rd 10 weeks. My next one they have not yet given me an appointment as I need an hour for the next one and they are so busy (one of the orthos is on maternity leave) but it should be 8-10weeks. When they ga...

Thanks catgyrl! So I got some floss last night and tried it (yay no longer a floss virgin) but it kept breaking and not sure I was doing it right. I will keep trying and hopefully I will get the hang of it. I am going to blame the fact I have never tried it on being English because everyone knows we...

Thank you for the quick reply!
