Re: Nearing completion, your opinion? (With pictures)

Great, thanks for your stories! Looks like I'll just keep going until they're perfect for me. I guess I was just kind of getting worried that the ortho would take them off even when they weren't perfect, almost like she can't see what I see and I'm being picky. I started thinking maybe my teeth are ...

Nearing completion, your opinion? (With pictures)

So when I got my braces on, I did start a post in "Our Braces Stories", but I was just unable to keep up with posting those pictures online. I did continue taking pictures until my teeth stopped making major changes, but I just never uploaded them here. Here's my current story: 3 weeks ago, I was to...

Carla's braces journey!

The day finally came. I went into the office thinking I'd just be getting my treatment plan explained to me, and then having spacers put in... but apparently I didn't need molar bands and they fit me in for braces that day (yesterday)! I'm happy that I didn't need molar bands, because for some reaso...

A true overbite?

I've been seeing a lot of people use overbite and overjet interchangeably. Overbite is how much the upper teeth overlap the bottom teeth, like covering the bottom teeth... not how far they stick out past the bottom teeth. I've been trying to find people's stories who have a bad overbite, so I can fo...

Wow! Perfect! I'm getting so excited to get my braces put on, but I still have 26 days (but who's counting?)

Re: Undoing extraction orthodontics?

I'm so glad I joined this forum you guys... thanks for all your input... I DO NOT want extractions anymore! I thought it was the only way to correct an overbite or something... but so many people are mentioning a "weak chin", and I already feel like I have a weak one! I don't want it to look worse. ...

Re: Regretting extractions, considering reversal

I'm glad I found this forum... All my consultations, the ortho said they would re-evaluate about halfway in and see if i like my profile. If I didn't, I could have extractions then to help my overbite. The ortho I chose didn't mention extractions at all... so I was kinda getting worried that I SHOUL...

Re: Bite Blocks / Turbos

Because of needing fillings and them not being able to get me in until April 10 and April 16, all I'm doing now is waiting, and wondering, and worrying about what my treatment will be (I'll find out on April 16 and get spacers). I actually want the bite turbos on the back of the teeth... it seems li...

Re: Does anyone actually have traditional metal braces anymo

I'm getting traditional metal! Hey, they're cheaper, smaller, and they don't discolor! Ceramic may be harder to see from far away, but they seem bigger/chunkier, so you still can kinda tell there's something in someone's mouth. So I may as well embrace it! I think I'll start with gray ligatures, but...

Hey guys, I'm new!

Hello! I'm Carla. I'm 26 years old. I have wanted to get braces since I was about 18 (but knew I always needed them before that). I used to browse this forum around that time, as well. I feel like there were more active members back then, but hopefully I can get the same kind of support here! I have...
