Re: Celebrating 30 with braces! They're finally on.

YAY!!! MY SPRINGS ARE OFF! Such a happy day :) Got my springs off, new ligs and wire on the bottom and got a new "bioforce" wire on top. Doc says that because of that bioforce wire I wont have to do any changes for a good 3-4 more visits. I guess this one is the strongest one, and it works continuou...

Re: Celebrating 30 with braces! They're finally on.

Ok, so here goes the long story. I had a filling fail, and ended up needing a crown after I already had my braces on. My ortho debonded that tooth, I got the crown and went back in after the weekend to get the tooth bonded again. After looking at how much my teeth had moved on the bottom after havin...

Re: Celebrating 30 with braces! They're finally on.

Just wanted to share an updated photo! I had to get a bracket rebonded after it had to come off to be crowned (long story) so while I was there I asked them to take a set of progress pics. I am so excited with the progress from my top arch! The bottom looks worse since they have to spread the teeth ...

Re: Celebrating 30 with braces! They're finally on.

Had an ortho visit this morning and FINALLY got new wires and my springs tightened! The bottom teeth are crazy sore, and I looked in the mirror and was shocked to see that my bottom two front teeth have moved SIGNIFICANTLY since my appointment this morning. Crazy! I guess those springs mean business...

Re: Celebrating 30 with braces! They're finally on.

Speaking of videos, here is my newest one. This one talks about the products that have helped me the most since getting braces. I also talk a little about my last visit and my wisdom teeth :)

Thankfully everything is healing nicely!

Re: Celebrating 30 with braces! They're finally on.

Hope you can manage the pain, I never had my wisdom removed, still have all 32, but I know what my son and daughter went thru. I just want to commend you for being on the web and informative, your U-tube video's are the best of what is out there. I am an Engineer and am going thru this process in m...

Re: Celebrating 30 with braces! They're finally on.

Thanks Tobilei! Okay, so the wisdom teeth are out. It's been a drag because I can't really properly clean my teeth towards my molars, so of course I assume I'm getting cavities every single day. I'm sure I'm not, but you know how brains and anxiety can be :P The surgeon did pop one of my brackets of...

Re: Celebrating 30 with braces! They're finally on.

Ok, so second visit. No new wires yet :P He said the top wire still has some work to do, as does the bottom. I have another appointment for six weeks from now and he said they'd but on a bigger wire up top and "activate my springs". I asked what he meant, and he said that they'd tighten the springs ...

Re: Choosing braces colors as an adult.

I had silver on my bottom row (ceramic uppers) and I think I'm going to do a color when I have my adjustment in March :) I'm thinking teal or light blue- I heard they make your teeth look a bit whiter.
