Re: My Journey

Well I've not been here in quite some time - but there has been little to document. I did get a bite plate back in mid-July http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/fillyone/BitePlate071813b_zps28a16999.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/fillyone/BitePlate071813a_zps55ba69ee.jpg http://img.pho...

Re: I hate waiting.. (long rambling rant/thought dump).

OF - If you get the implant you can not get braces later without having the implant removed, so keep that in mind!!

I had an implant for a front tooth in 1993ish and it was removed in September so I could get braces.

Re: Would you pay the full amount of braces up front?

I went back and forth and back and forth on what to do, 5% isn't a huge amount of money However, when I found out that to get paid from my FSA account I would have to submit a paper form and receipt MONTHLY to be reimbursed I jumped at paying it all up front. Now I'll need to do 3 forms (Jan 2013, 2...

Re: My Journey

Just went back and read my earlier entries - I did get one HUGE fantastic surprise.

When the insurance actually paid on the implant removal, they paid $900ish of the $1200ish!!!

Re: Getting Braces At The Age of 54!

My right canine is snapped off at the gum line. In a week I'm having the implant that is right next to it removed. I then have to wait 2 months before I can get my braces on (To correct my overbite that they believe is causing my top teeth to break) so the bone they'll put in the hole left by the im...

Re: My Journey

09/13/12 I picked the Endodontist from my insurance list and turns out he actually has had a tooth extruded. While doing the root canal he commented several times on what a "great" root that tooth has - which was music to my ears! Only thing is, this tooth still hurts! It hurt so bad on Tuesday tha...

Re: My Journey

Re: Here we go...

Yeah, it's quite the overbite I have - since I'm old as dirt these types of bites often were not corrected back in the day when I was young since my teeth were/are straight!

My Journey

This board seems like a good place to track my journey! Back at Easter I was splurging on a solid chocolate bunny when I had that feeling of what I thought was a crown coming off. Nope, not that lucky. From my journal that I was keeping at the time (Kaos is one of my German Shepherds, that's her as ...

Re: Here we go...

To be honest Glandyover I have no idea what those questions even mean - though I think my overjet is minimal - my teeth do not stick out, they fit very nicely over my bottom teeth. What it looks like if I just peel back my lip-There really are bottom teeth under there :-* http://img.photobucket.com/...
