Re: My story...

They did all the molds and stuff in November. I just needed to know how much is would cost so I could set up my flex account to pay for it. Got a surprise, though, and dh went ahead and got himself braced, too. So three of us braced in one day for my ortho. The ladies thought it was a riot. My mouth...

Re: My story...

I did it. I'm bracked, bracketed, bite plated and rather sore. My bite plate rubs the top of my mouth something horrid. Hurts like heck. Other than that, I'm surviving. Wax is my friend. Motrin is my friend and warm salt water will be my friend in a few minutes. Note to all interested...do not start...

Re: did you take a sick day

I'm getting mine on Thursday morning. I have the whole day off for two reason. My son is getting his on at the same time and I need to kill some time-off before March. I figured what the hey, take the day. Friday will be crazy busy at work, so I hope I adjust fast.

Re: For those that use(d) FSA

The new reform stuff makes it slightly more difficult to know what you can and can't use your FSA on. OTC things can longer just be purchased. We always used the rest of ours up on kids tylenol, motrin, cold meds, etc. As well as on first aid kits. Good things to have on hand with kids. Things are a...

Re: Am I Stressing Over Nothing? D-Day 1-6-11

Don't worry about it either way. Somewhere on this board is a topic with foods that stain ligs the worst. I think curry was top of the list. Anyhow, in that topic was a little bit about what does and doesn't stain ceramic. I would search that out and see if those are food you eat/drink a lot. Curry,...

Re: Am I Stressing Over Nothing? D-Day 1-6-11

I don' t have an answer for you, but did want to say yay to you for making the decision to get braced. We have the same brace day. I'm going with metal,. I'm all excited for the different colored bands. Having the ligs different colors would negate the purpose of the ceramics, I think. I don't reall...

Re: My story...

BR, Totally have LOVED your posts. They are very insightful. :) You are really upbeat and put a great spin on your journey. I think it is either dread this or be excited. Where I chose it, I think it behooves me to be stoked about it. My nature is pretty upbeat, anyway. I try not to let things get m...

Re: My story...

Yay!! Four more weekes. I'm super excited and very glad that my friends are willing to put up with my craziness. Mostly that my DH is putting up with me. 18 days until my son gets spacers. The ladies in the ortho's office said to just bring him in sometime after Christmas (50 miles over a snowy moun...

Dangerdude, Looking into the faucet attatchment thingy. Couple of drawbacks. We have really icky water. I brush with bottled water. Faucet water would destroy a waterpik. And I'm travelling in Feb to the East, so I gotta take something with me. Must do more research. :) hmmm I OCD these things. I as...

I'm soooo excited. This is stupid. I suck at waiting. Really, I do. I've been perusing the lig colours thread. Loving the camo on page 35. Not my thing, though I may have to try it for hunting season. DH will get a kick out of it. Decided to start my diet this week. I was going to start at the begin...

Probably just a couple more days. Cut things up small and chew softly. You will be just fine.

I had all four of mine out the same day. I was back to work the next Tuesday (had them out Friday on a three day weekend). I went to a dental surgeon, though. At 33, I had some serious roots for those suckers and my dentist is of the opinion that the other guy was trained for extractions and to do i...
