Re: from the UK, have an underbite due to braces at age 14

Hiya, your best bet is to ask your general dentist to refer you to the orthodontics dept at your local hospital. Only they can tell you if you're a candidate for NhS ortho treatment. Good luck x

Re: Adult overjet - in need of an orthodontist or a magician

Oooo your teeth sound like mine were before my braces. I've not posted on this forum for a long time but was having a mooch and your post caught my eye. I had similar issues in that my two front teeth were tipped back and touched my bottom teeth and the two teeth either side of my front teeth stuck ...

Re: Whitening teeth after braces

I got free 'at home' whitening after my braces came off, it's 16% (average strength) to use with my invisilign retainers. I'm not gonna lie..... I found it unbearably painful. I didnt have sensitive teeth either. Apparently some people have agonising pain and others have no pain whatsoever. I've tri...

Re: Custom Permanent Retainer??

They bend the wire for each person. It took a good 10 mins for him to fit mine, he kept trying it and then bending it some more. So basically what I'm saying is that if isn't like a straight line and they could very easily but a 'n' shape in the wire so that where your gap is the wire would be highe...

Re: Intro- 37 and looking at 2.5 yrs in braces :(

I remember saying to my husband about 3 months into treatment that if I had the option to have my old teeth back or to keep the braces on forever I'd keep the braces on! Ha ha I know that seems a ridiculous statement to have made but as I saw my teeth changing I felt so much more confident than befo...

Hang in there and keep us updated. Lots of people will follow your progress even if they don't post a commen...

Re: Im free! my before and after pics

Aww thank u all!! I had them for just short of 12 months but it was only decided to do my bottom teeth 6 months into treatment so I think if the top and bottoms had been braced at the same time I'd have been done sooner but it didn't bother me having a longer treatment time as I was told the final r...

Re: Im free! my before and after pics

Hi, no I didn't have any bonding or re-shaping done. I asked my ortho early on in treatment if my front teeth were longer that the others would he file them down, he said yes but that he didn't think it'd be necessary and he was right as they all ended up the same length anyway. My gum line also was...

Re: Permanent Retainer is a PAIN! :(

I've had a permanent top and bottom retainer fitted today and I hate them! The bottom one isn't too bad actually, I could live with that but the top one is awful. It feels so huge and bulky in my mouth and when I eat it's like I've got food stuck behind my front teeth so I'm constantly tryin to tong...
