Re: Ellebraced is getting braced- PICS !!!!!

Hi and welcome to the site. I think a lot of the concerns you raise are what most people think/ go through before getting braces. Honestly I get mistaken for being younger than I am with out braces but with braces it can be funny: for example I went to the doctors the other day and the assistant too...

Re: Has anyone lost the ability to whistle?

Hahah yes! I guess if you're a dog owner you notice stuff like that. I used to have a nice loud whistle and now nothing!

Re: Second guessing

I get how you feel. I have full metal and when I first got them I had to fight the urge to run and hide for 24 months. I am sure most people notice my braces but 99% no one says anything at all or even makes a big deal out of it. The only time people ask is if they have braces themselves or to say h...

Now, a pair of Tad’s 2 extractions and lots of metal in my mouth would I do it again? In a heartbeat I would. I was looking at pictures this weekend fairly resent pictures, in which...

Re: Any1 had a bit of root left in after extractions???

Help/advice needed

Any of you who have TADs I need advice! I just got my TADs done Thursday. My mouth is so sore and I feel like I feel when I first got braces (how am I ever going to get used to these? How am I going to eat?). Please tell me it gets better that after a while you don’t feel them. I have been using med...

4 months and 1 birthday in

Yesterday was my 23rd birthday and I never thought at 23 I would be in braces. Honestly I am so happy that I am. I have gotten so many complements from friends, family and strangers on my teeth. I was traveling this summer and the flight attendent complemented me on my teeth saying she just had her ...

I agree with Silver the first week is the worst but then you get used to them. When youu first get them on you can't ever picture yourself eat normal but honestly you do. Just keep telling yourself that! oh and chap-stick and wax are your best friends. I use chap-stick everyday because the braces dr...
