Finally free!

It's been 2 years and 1 month and my mouth is totally metal free! (other than my retainers, haha) Finally removed my lower braces today :) Image

Re: Two bicuspids pulled/Nance?

I'm not too sure about the nance, and different people react differently to having extractions. Of course there are those horror stories about people having their face deformed after having their bicuspids extracted, but you have to recognise that there are also many cases whereby people have had th...

Re: THEY'RE OFF!!!!!

Congrats on your beautiful smile!! And also, your retainers look fabulous. I'm so envious that you only have to wear them at night and I'm sure you'll be perfectly comfortable with them soon :)

Re: Do you get more power chains?

They probably change powerchains at every appointment to ensure that they remain tight to close the gaps. Don't worry, your ortho knows what he/she is doing!

Re: It's almost my turn!

I got my hawley retainer today! My ortho gave me a smiley face on mine because I'm always wearing earrings with a smiley on them so she thought they'd suit me :) I really like them! Other than the discomfort they cause though... IMG_5217.JPG IMG_5218.JPG I foresee myself losing weight from retainers...

Re: My Metal-Mouth Journey!

I'm interested to hear about retainers. It's a long way off for me but I would like something to wear at night and to be free in the day. Then there is the possibility of permanent ones on the back of teeth which I don't like so much but maybe they are not so bad after wearing braces for two years....

Re: My Metal-Mouth Journey!

It's been awhile since I updated my blog, because I have just been posting in the main forums instead. Decided to add in my half-debanded photos to my progress collage! I get my retainers in 2 days, definitely not looking forward to that :(

Re: It's almost my turn!

Congratulations. Your teeth look lovely. When do you get your lower brace off? Jem Thanks for your kind comments :) I'm not sure, my ortho says they'll be off by Feb? But there's still quite a bit of work to be done (tooth rotation, closing of gaps...) so I'm not too hopeful of that. I'll ask her a...

Re: Retainers - Torture/Weight Loss Program?

Thanks for your responses, I guess the only way to find out would be to ask my ortho! And my appointment is in 2 days! I can barely contain my excitement :HugeGrin:

Re: Retainers - Torture/Weight Loss Program?

What type of retainers will you have? If you have only bonded retainers, eating will not be an issue. If you have hawley retainers you should be able to eat with them in if they are reasonably robustly made and you are careful what you eat. Congratulations on reaching this stage! Jem I'll be gettin...

Retainers - Torture/Weight Loss Program?

So, I'm scheduled to get my braces off in a week (woohoo!) and my retainers about a week after that. I'm worried about getting my retainers because I heard you have to wear them all day except when you're eating. The problem is, I'm constantly eating. 24/7. I always have food in my hand/mouth, and n...
