3 Month Update

Hey all, It's been a while since I last posted an update. So here it is, my 3rd month update. The pre-braces picture is from the day of my braces appointment. Looking at the before and my 3rd photo, I can actually see some progress, especially my center upper teeth. Overall, I am very happy with my ...

Re: I'm going to get braces this year!

That was fast. I've had mine for almost 2 months and I'm still trying to get used to them. I've already had a change of bottom wires so maybe that's why lol

I'm looking to reading your progress! Good luck on your braces journey :)

Re: Funsizee's Braces Journey at 26

Sorry you're stuck in elastics for now but your teeth are looking great :D Thanks Tobi :) I checked out your thread and your teeth look amazing!!!! I can't really tell if your power chain is on the top or the bottom though. Mine is very visible on the bottom since it's silver-ish. It makes the bott...

Re: Funsizee's Braces Journey at 26

I agree that you have really nice teeth. The protrusion doesn't look bad - did u ever have braces before? I'm surprised that they are quoting you 24-30 months considering the positions and shape of your teeth aren't, well, "wonky" at all! Ah I can't wait to see more pictures of your progress! You d...

Re: Funsizee's Braces Journey at 26

Hey Funsizee! I'm having the same problem with a lower central incisor. It is soooo tall & I hate it! But I asked my ortho about it at my last appointment on 4/10/13 and she said that the heavier wire they placed that day will help level them and they'll reposition some brackets on the lower arch t...

WEEK 6 UPDATE

I can't believe it's been 6 weeks since I got my braces. I apologize for the lack of updates as I have been so busy with school (finals week). I finally had my 1st ortho appointment 2 weeks ago and it went pretty well. Here are the list of things that were done: 1. IPR (upper and bottom) 2. Changed ...

Re: Bikerchick85's Quest for a Perfect Smile *With Pics!*

OMG your teeth look amazing!!! I just got my braces yesterday and I'm hoping I my teeth will move as fast as yours :) Thank you, Funsizee! It's crazy how fast they move at the beginning... and then everything seems to slow down... Congrats on getting yours and starting the journey! My lowers are st...

WEEK 2 UPDATE

I can't believe it has been two weeks since I got my braces. So far, the pressure has definitely subsided and I am able to eat more comfortably now compared to my first week. The teeth clenching is still bothering me because it wakes me up in the middle of the night. Brushing my teeth, flossing and ...

Re: My Braces Journey - Extraction Regret!

Hi Star, I'm so sorry to hear about your ortho experience. I was also told by my ortho that I need to extract 4 teeth but have decided to put that on hold because I am scared that I will regret it and have also read somewhere in this forum that there was a possibility of facial collapse? I'm not sur...

BEFORE BRACES PHOTOS

Here are my photos taken from my initial consultation. I decided to post my current day 10 photos just for comparison. Sorry for the crappy pictures. I didn't have access to a scanner so I took the photos using my cell. As you can see from the first picture, my smile is quite different with the brac...

Re: Funsizee's Braces Journey at 26

Funsizee, don't get extractions. Your teeth look so nice right now. I can't tell by the photos posted how far your protrusion is, but it doesn't appear to be that bad. I bet with ipr your teeth can be pulled back quite a bit. Thanks Kip! I do hope that I don't have to get extractions. I will post a...

Re: Funsizee's Braces Journey at 26

I had my top brace applied on 3/6/13. I have also started clenching. It wakes me up through the night. I never did this before. It is quite uncomfortable. I will definitely broach this when I go back to the ortho next month. You do have a lovely smile. My mouth was in pain for about a week. I tried...

Re: Funsizee's Braces Journey at 26

Yay for making the first week :jump: I've always clenched my teeth in my sleep but it has gotten SOOO much worse since braces. My ortho said unfortunately in some people that's normal as your mouth tries to adjust to your new bite (on the bonus side it generally means things are moving!). Maybe tal...
