Re: My Clear Braces - Elastic Modules have gone GREEN!!

I know how you feel! It's so annoying getting lovely clean/clear ligatures and then like a week later they are a horrible yellow colour. I'm 10 months in and now I just don't even care about the staining anymore. There's just so much good "staining" food out there I just don't want to live without. ...

Re: Well the curry got me.

I find it fades a little over time, but will never be as nice as the first few days you get them on :(

Try using some strong mouthwash.

Re: Something I've learned from wearing braces....

My boss didn't even notice I had braces for MONTHS! She only noticed them when I started talking about them and then she was like "Ohh! You have braces! I never noticed" :D

Re: Undoing extraction orthodontics?

There was someone on here not that long ago that was looking into a similar thing. Maybe try searching through the archives? It's not impossible to reverse it. Just costly and time consuming. The last time I had braces, I had extractions and everything was brought backwards. My current ortho has mov...

Re: Aesthetics when upper first premolars are extracted?!

If you have a wide mouth/smile, you will be able to notice the extractions more than if you have a smaller mouth.

I have a small mouth and when I got my extractions it wasn't noticeable at all! :D

Re: What is the first thing you will eat after braces?

I will be happy to eat Subway without any of it getting lodged in my braces! :D

I will also be happy to eat curries without worrying about the staining... especially Chicken Tikka!

Re: Since the bottom retainer only cover front six teeth...

An essix retainer is just a clear plastic retainer that covers all of your teeth. I guess it's kind of like a really thin plastic mouth guard, but instead of protecting your teeth, it keeps them straight.

Go to google images and type in essix retainer and you will see what I mean :)

Re: Since the bottom retainer only cover front six teeth...

Not having anything to support my back teeth is one of the reasons I am back in braces again. The last time I had braces I got bonded retainers top and bottom. A couple of years later the back teeth started shifting because nothing was keeping them in their place. It didn't bother me because they we...

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

What I meant by gum is that your gum line starts higher up on your right tooth. To get your left tooth as perfect as your right tooth, you would need about 1.5mm or less of gum removed from the left tooth. I have a similar thing going on with my teeth, but a lot worse and I'm okay with it. I don't k...
