Re: Are trans-palatal arches used for adults?

Yes TPAs are used on adults. I had one placed to prevent my molars from migrating forward after having two premolars extracted. It did cause some expansion even though that is not what my ortho was trying to accomplish.

Re: Metal Poisoning from braces???

If you are at all concerned about the nickel in your braces, talk to your Ortho about it. There are nickel free brackets and wires. I have a nickel allergy and my Ortho was able to order special brackets for me.

Re: Anyone experience this

Yes! I thought I was alone. I have that feeling in a few of my lower teeth. Braces are not on the bottom yet, but I just had extractions done five days ago.

Re: Root canal and braces

Thanks for all of the replies. I just have a little update. At my last appointment my Ortho took out my wire to give that tooth a break and see if it would tighten up, and it did. The tenderness was also gone after two or three days. I just had an x-Ray and my dentist said everything looks good. Hap...

Re: Root canal and braces

Thanks DrJason,

My Ortho said he would do an x-Ray at my next appointment. I'm just a little anxious, and I just want to know what would happen in a worse case senerio.

Bookfairy,

Thanks for the response. I am hoping that I will eventual become happy with my in-ovation c's too. I have only had then on for four days, so they're still new to me. At this point they still feel a bit intrusive. Glad to hear about the staining, or lack there of.

I had opted for the C's at first but ended up going with all metal. No offense to anybody in ceramics but to me they are even more noticeable. Kind of like, hey there is something on your teeth, are they braces or boogers? :lol: I do understand what you mean about them being noticeable. I thought t...

Thanks everyone for all of your replies. Today they don't feel as large. I only have one spot that is bothering me, my canine has a bracket with the hook and the hook keeps catching my lip. I put a little wax on it and I'm fine. Hopefully by next week I will forget about them. RedDress, I took a loo...
