Re: Anyone have experience with bite turbos?

I had them for about 7 months. I got used to them. Even when i got them off it felt so weird that I missed them. It made biting into things a little rough but you get used to them just like anything else. I was always worried about breaking them which was a waste of time because when they came off I...

Re: Ceramic brackets: self-ligating or clear ligatures?

How visible ARE your bottom teeth? Mine aren't really even that visible when I smile at all. Also, keep in mind that you might have to get powerchains.

Re: Gap keeps reopening

Wearing a retainer a few nights a week sounds more impractical to me than every single night. I think it would be hard to remember to wear it only a few times a week. Plus, you ARE sleeping. How much difference does a retainer make? I just got mine off and too had a gap between my top two front teet...

Re: Beckyboo in Braces

Definitely don't recommend getting your braces off at 39 weeks pregnant... not a fun time to be laying back in a chair for a long time. But it's done and whoa! This picture is the before and after but also RIGHT before my appointment. You can see how my teeth were sorta slanted down and they got sha...

Re: Last Day of Braces= Torture

HA Yeah I have a few spots too that are feeling annoying and I get mine off tomorrow. I have worn a decent amount of wax this month! (But my mouth things might be pregnancy related...?)
