Re: Can I do it?

How are you doing? Wow guys, it´s been like forever! How are you all holding up? A lot have happened since I "left". I´m got my uppers back on again in feb. this year. My ortho (who I now work full time with) and I wanted to give it another try. We took a few brackets one day and another ones a wee...

Re: Can I do it?

I have felt very little anxiety since removal of my uppers. My old “normal” life is back and things are going as they should. This stupid anxiety only appears when I´m having my appointments, besides this there is very little anxiety and I at times forgets that I have them. There is not much left to...

Re: OK--This was not the plan!

Thanks Klobird. I got my braces off 10 days ago. I have upper and lower Essix's, but they only cover the front 6's from canine to canine. Would you believe I've had trouble sneezing the upper one out? The first time it happened, I was driving and the sneeze hit hard and fast. I heard a funny sound ...

Re: Can I do it?

Today I had my first day working with Eric and it went very well! I will work some Saturdays at his local office (3 min driving from where I live) and every Thursdays at his office outside of our city. Eric was very kind with every pt and had no rush with them (I needed to push/rush him a little bec...

Re: Can I do it?

At my appointment on friday we put a small power chain on two teeth to close an almost closed exaction gap. Next time I will get a new arch wire that will widen my lower jaw (in order to try to reduce my scissor bite) and to protrude my lower incisor (to reduce my overjet). If this works out there w...

Re: Dissapointment

At my ortho office, almost all the techs have braces, they get a huge discount, and their insurance covers adult treatment. Maybe a temporary career change? One of the techs I talk to every time I visit told me she only has to pay 29 dollars a month. The normal payment is 149 per month, and she sai...

Re: Can I do it?

I've been following your blog and I understand that you would not want to go through all of it again. There is only so much anxiety a person should have to deal with. In hindsight, do you wish your boss hadn't agreed to take them off or are you thankful that you had your summer without them so you ...

Congratulations on your debonding! Please post pics. Best wishes Jem Hi Jem! Yes, I have a retainer :thumbsup: And are very hap...

Re: Can I do it?

It´s time for an update: Had my appointment with Eric before the summer and he even though he hoped that I would want to continue my treatment on my upper jaw, he agreed that there is a limit on how far we should push this, how much anxiety a person should have. Even though my bite is a bit strange ...

Re: Elastics, OMG OUCH!

I loved my elastic! I even used dobbel heavy ones at night voluntarily (after asking my ortho). Had no pain with them at all :D

That is one of the things that I miss with just braces in one jaw, my elastics :(

Re: 31 year old dental assistant considering braces.

I´m a dental assistant with metal braces. Worked as a general dental assistant when I got my braces but today I work as a ortho assistant. Wearing braces (metal braces) while being a dental assistant is a very positive thing. People ask you about them and you will be surprise how many adults who wan...
