There's a few video about the dad talking about his braces and treatment, and a detailed one of him getting his adjustment. Other cute family videos as well.

Re: Does Gum level readjust?

My crowns were also slightly raised and the gums seemed to adjust with them. I was also concerned with this issue as one of those crowns was a bicuspid and the line would have been visable whenI talked or smiled.

Re: Post-op tips

Hyr,

Your teeth look great! When do the braces come off. Do you have more time for final adjustments/straightening?

Re: Oldfart Orthodontic Diary

Why did you decide to close the gap at the missing molar, instead of both braces and an implant or bridge. Will you have the space closed, and an implant.

Re: Oldfart Orthodontic Diary

Wow! that's some impressive dental work! Looks like my back molars. The first lower left molar, is that a crown or just silver fillings? I had a similar dramatic bend from my first to second molars at all four corners. I really felt the braces at those locations. The bends have gone away over the pa...

Re: Teeth with root canals. More Painful?

I have two root canels with crowns and 3 other crowns. I don't feel a different sensation in those teeth now. However, when I first have my braces put on, I certainly felt the pain in those teeth from the spaces. My ortho banded all my crowns which include 2 bicuspids and 3 molars. I might have been...

Re: Braceface Greeting Etiquette

I ran into a worker at Home Depot with braces the other day. Young guy in mid 20's. I asked him how his braces were working out for him. We talked about braces for about 10 minutes - exchanging stories. He was more than happy to talk about his treatment. It was good to hear about wearing braces from...

One year aniversary

I just realized that yesterday was my one year aniversary of wearing braces. I celebrated by looking at some pictures of my teeth just prior to braces and soon after getting them on. In the past year: I've had all 4 second molar bands removed. I've unfortunately had several 2nd bicuspid bands instal...

They're go!

I just got out of my appointment about 30 minutes ago. My braces are on, and I couldn't be more excited to show them off. I have all metal braces on both sets of teeth, plus 8 molar bands. The whole process took about an hour. I was suprised about the molar bands - I though that they would have to b...

Re: Does having Braces make you feel cool?

I don't have my braces yet but....since I've always been envious of people with perfect teeth, I assume that I will feel cool wearing them because I will be one of those people. Based on what people have said when I mentioned getting braces, I think alot of people think they are cool as opposed to s...
