Re: Overjet/overbite problem?

Well I'm very low on money, I saved up for a long time for my braces and I can't afford surgery.

Overjet/overbite problem?

Okay so I'm really nervous. I've had braces for almost 3 months now and my teeth have moved a lot, mostly for the better. But the longer the braces have been on, the more my two front teeth have been tilting further and further outwards. Its really freaking me out cause I'm only wearing 6 month smil...

Re: One month in!

My teeth are all very weird and gapped so I've had powerchains and coils from the beginning, chains in the back to pull my molars together and coils on either side of my two front teeth to make room for teeth that are pushed back to come forward. I don't know anything different haha.

Re: One month in!

Yeah there's no pain afterwards for me, my teeth are used to the pressure of the braces, it actually hurt when they took the wire out and that constant pressure was gone. But what hurt was all the pushing and pulling on my teeth to get all the ligs off the brackets, they kept apologizing cause I was...

One month in!

Everything I've been told is a lie! Everyone I talked to said the first adjustment sucks but is not nearly as bad as when they put the braces on. What a total lie! Haha Today was my one month adjustment and I have never been in such pain in my entire life. There was so much pushing and pulling and m...

Re: Brace day on March 19th!

I've mentally prepared myself for my worst case scenario, soft food all through treatment, that doesn't mean I want it to happen though. I'll eat again someday haha

Re: Brace day on March 19th!

I'm so glad to be seeing movement so quickly, and dealing with the braces isn't bad at all. I don't have any pain, my teeth just feel a bit weird. Food is greatest enemy right now, although I did have pancakes for breakfast and battered fish fillets for lunch (used the roof of my mouth and my tongue...

Re: Brace day on March 19th!

Does anyone know how soon is too soon to start seeing movement? I'm only 3 days in and my teeth don't connect like they used to and I'm fairly sure my canines have moved ever so slightly haha

Re: Brace day on March 19th!

A couple of years would destroy me haha, I'm only doing six month smiles. I don't have any bite issues so I'm just fixing how my teeth look, and I don't care about my bottom teeth so I'm just doing the top. I'm getting off super easy.

Re: Brace day on March 19th!

Thats what I was thinking, although I'm still not sure I'll be able to do it. I've also lived with bad teeth my whole life, I'm only 22 but still, its not fun.

Day two went remarkably well, woke up with some pain but it subsided quickly

Re: Brace day on March 19th!

So far I've only put wax on the front 4, those are the hardest to get my mouth around :P
And flossing is so far impossible.
Pain has been very minimal, not looking forward to tomorrow though :?

They're starting to ache! Not bad just a dull aching, but hey that means they're starting to work right? :lol:
