Re: Let's dream a little (When I'm debraced)

I just cant wait to go out for a meal and not have to worry that my food is caught up in my brackets and wires. To be able to eat whatever I fancy and not be so self-concious about eating. :lol:

Re: Literally counting the days down!

Thank you everyone! I'm really excited but am starting to worry about my braces not being there any more. Silly really but my braces feel like my teeth are having a hug as they are held in place! I just hope they feel OK minus the braces. Silly me worrying! I am very excited though, and cant wait to...

Literally counting the days down!

So, I'm approaching brace off day! Wooo hoooooo I have 6 days to go and I'm so excited. :jump: I've been in braces for 17 months and been through the joys of extractions, molar build ups, power chains...........but its totally been worth it. I just cant wait to see my new smile minus all of the wires.

Re: The waiting room

Totally! At my last adjustment I saw another lady who had braces and I literally wanted to jump up and ask her all about her treatment. Most of the time I am surrounded by 14 yr olds in the waiting room.

Re: some people just don't understand...

Snap - when I first decided to go for braces everyone told me that it was too expensive and that my teeth were part of me and how I look, and added 'character'. I hated people saying that and all I needed was someone to say - 'yes, you are totally making the right decision'. Anyway, despite most peo...

Re: teeth extraction, fixed braces...getting really nervous!

I had an extraction on the top next to my canine, and an extraction of an incisor on my bottom set. The extraction process was painless, although I got so nervous I nearly didn't go in! I was concerned about how the holes would look but everyone has told me that they can hardly see the extraction ga...

Re: 24, UK. Need braces desperately. Need encouragement.

I think you should go for it if you can afford it. Although uncomfortable and painful at times its the best thing I've done for myself, probably ever. Last Saturday night I went out with friends, and for the first time that I can remember was not ashamed to smile - and my braces have only been on si...

Re: Extractions and braced - all today!

Wow! - you went through a lot in one day! My teeth are similar to yours, but only on one side (the other side is weirdly straight). I have top and bottom braces and two extractions and it all took about 3 months to get all of the work done and both sets of braces on. I'm noticing changes already and...

Re: So tired of SOUP!

I'm the same! I've got molar bulid ups so even if my teeth weren't sore I still couldn't chew if I wanted too! I'm finding it really tough as I can't physically eat enough and my sport is suffering. I'm trying to get enough food in but it's painful and takes ages to clean afterwards. Fingers crossed...

Re: Extraction of bottom incisor.

So, a week on and I have my nice shiny bottom braces on. I feel so much better about the whole thing now and guess that the low points will make the end result all the more sweeter!! I'm still a little self concious of the extraction in the bottom set of my teeth but that will close in time. Just an...

Extraction of bottom incisor.

I'm feeling really, really sorry for myself at the moment as today I had my lower incisor removed before I get my bottom set of braces on. I feel so self concious and am dreading work tomorrow. I know I had to get it taken out as otherwise my bite won't meet properly once my top teeth are straight b...

Re: Question on tooth movement

I'm going through exactly the same thing! They get sore, then 'clicky', then loose. A weird feeling to get used to that's for sure. I can't help myself for playing with the loose ones!

Re: Wobbly teeth.

Mine click too, when I eat and also sometimes when I talk. Very glad this is normal and means that they might be starting to move!

Its quite exciting when little things change, hopefully I'll notice some movement soon! :-)
