Re: Braces at 46, first time ever. YIKES!

Exactly.

Marigold its so simple to make and you can use whatever you like for ingredients. All you need is a good blender.

If you dont want to or cant make from scratch just look for a healtier one off the shelf with reduced sodium.

No I have more... not less saliva....lol

The bite plate is basically a retainer that is built up so there is a ledge behind the front teeth. What this does is prevent the top teeth from biting off the bottom braces when there is an overbite. Now instead of my top teeth coming down over the bottom it hits the top plate and has to stop. I tr...

Re: Braces at 46, first time ever. YIKES!

You should call your Ortho and tell them what happened and see if you need to go it if its was a break or a snap...better safe than sorry. I have a bite plate (retainer) that I need to use at home and for sleeping as well as eating. I thought it would drive me nuts and I wouldn't be able to sleep bu...

Re: After braces fitted - your experiences?

Re: Braces at 46, first time ever. YIKES!

Funny you ask, as I did notice that they moved but they are more like fangs then they were prior. Not huge but definitley different. It appears that they are being straightened and then they will be tucked back in line.

Still fairly pain free. How are you doing?
