Re: Today was a VERY good day - I got braced!!

Wow, what a fantastic progress in a short time, jerseygirl, you must be so happy!!! Your ortho did a very great job! I am in the same boat as you were, with a crossbite and open bite, so your story encourages me very much. You have such a fantastic result! Did your ortho manage to fix your crossbit...

Re: Essix retainer - pain when and after removing!!!

[quote="ortholabowner"]is there a fake tooth that remains locked into your essix upon removal? No - but plastic material from the retainer sits in the holes (I have two spaces one on either side of lower jaw). The retainer keeps all other teeth in place - which in theory should prevent them from shi...

Re: Essix retainer - pain when and after removing!!!

Yes my teeth definitely moved in the week between being debraced and getting new retainer. (Not all orthodontists make retainers in their office - some send them out to be made and I had permanent ones put in the day I was debraced but this would not prevent side teeth from shifting). But he adjuste...

Essix retainer - pain when and after removing!!!

Hi -- So I was debraced and returned one week later for a bottom essix retainer only. I have bonded top AND bottom retainers. I need the bottom essix because I have two spaces in my lower arch where I had extractions. One space will be replaced with an implant - the other space, not sure. Too late f...

Re: Today was a VERY good day - I got braced!!

Hi!! Today was the day and it went VERY well. I am THRILLED beyond words, on Cloud Nine!! I was excited but also a bit nervous because I'd read it can hurt. I honestly believe it's all about how gentle the ortho is. Yes a few spots hurt a bit - but it was nothing I could not tolerate and I have VERY...

Re: Today was my lucky day!!! I got braced!

I'm getting DE-BRACED!! Yippeeeee! :jump: :jump: :jump: Four weeks to go! The MAIN reason for my braces was to correct my bite which is now MUCH better. I can make my top and bottom teeth meet and I can bite into things. The sides meet better too and an added bonus, STRAIGHT TEETH! :lol: Here are my...
