Re: My Second Braces Journey @ 24

Wow it's been quite a while since I last updated on my journey here! Since I've last updated, nothing much has changed with the exception of the gap in my uppers closing and my biting continuing to close on both sides. My ortho is super excited with how I'm progressing still and we're now in the "fi...

Re: My Second Braces Journey @ 24

I haven’t a clue what they are for as I haven’t had to use them for elastics or anything.

Re: "You've got a really unique and complicated case" -- my braces story

I know the struggle of finding an orthodontist who you click with! I went to 5 different orthodontists before I finally chose one. I had it narrowed down to two choices (all the other 3 wouldn't even think of doing braces without jaw surgery which I was 100% against) and actually wound up going with...

Re: My Second Braces Journey @ 24

I haven't updated here in awhile! Since I've last posted, my gaps on my lower teeth have all closed up and I no longer have a power thread down there. However, a few gaps appeared on my upper teeth and now I have a chain across all my teeth on the uppers. For some reason they don't attach the chain ...

Re: My Second Braces Journey @ 24

I had my 7 month adjustment this morning and got a few new additions: - New elastic configuration in a parallelogram shape to start settling my back teeth together, no more Class III's for now. In fact, I wore my old elastics so well my orthodontist said I gave myself a slight overbite :lol: - Power...

Re: My Second Braces Journey @ 24

Officially 6 months in braces! I still can't get over it being only 6 months with how much my smile has changed! I had my most recent adjustment two weeks ago. I got new wires on both top and bottom (I think I overheard them being the last of the Ni-Ti wires) and my ortho said we might move into the...

Re: Self-Ligating Brackets with O-Ring Ligs

I can’t speak in any official capacity as to why those have ligatures on them, but I don’t believe those would have any effect on a self-lighting bracket. My ortho’s office (they use Damons) offers the option of having colored ligs if you want them just because and have good hygiene. However, only o...

Re: Toothpaste & MoutHwash for clear ceramic braces?

I’ve kept to a basic Colgate toothpaste (the exact name escapes me and I’m too lazy to get up to look at it lol) and for mouth wash I’ve been using ACT Braces Care.

Re: My Second Braces Journey @ 24

Your teeth are not even done, and I have teeth envy already. They are going to look beautiful. Thanks!! :tingrin: Also, the slight gap between my lower teeth is now definitely noticeable. I think they were somewhat slanted at the start and now that they are uprighted by the new wire a gap formed. I...

Re: My Second Braces Journey @ 24

I had my second adjustment this morning and I'm definitely feeling these thicker wires lol. I'm in rectangular wires in both top (.021) and bottom (.019) now as well as continuing to wear Class III elastics full-time (Sea Lion | Heavy). My ortho has been amazed at how fast my smile has improved in s...
