Re: notice of first change

Within the first few days ! Then it seemed slow as I was checking teeth a lot. Now I hardly ever bother checking unless cleaning and boy have there been changes ! Now up to the 12 week mark. One bottom tooth was half pushed behind my front bottom tooth and now all of sudden its sitting perfectly str...

Re: Oh god, just got them on today, oh god oh man oh god

Mine have been on 3 months today ! The day I got them on, I think I was in shock as I didn't expect them to feel so much like ghastly hardware in my mouth - all rough and bumpy ! Ahhhh! BUT within a week or two I started to see changes ! Now three months down the track - huge changes and people goin...

almost 4 weeks now !

Hi Its almost 4 weeks now and lots of teeth aching more often (especially through the night). I hope this means things are moving etc. I also managed for the first time today, to have a salad sandwich and also was able to eat the crusts (carefully) also !! Hurrah !! Cut it up into smaller pieces and...

Re: Getting Braces very soon

That sounds great - so glad all feels so good ! I think the pressure feeling came after about a week on but as I say, so far !, its just there and not painful really. Might be different after 1st adjustment in 5 weeks time. Keep looking in the mirror everyday hoping to see more straightness but of c...

Re: Getting Braces very soon

Hi NeilH, Tomorrow will be my 3 week mark and definitely getting more used to them. As long as I have put some wax on bits, it all feels fine. I am feeling times of pressure on teeth and then it goes again. I don't mind the feeling as I know things are 'afoot' as they say. How about you - are you ok ?

Re: How do you keep ligs from staining?

Looked in the mirror yesterday after my coffee (from machine) and the bottom of my teeth looked really yellow ! Freaked out !! Did a thorough brushing and clean (waterpik too) and then they came good. Now I am making sure to swish water around mouth after food and coffee all the time and I hope this...

Re: which is best clear braces bottom and top or just on top

Hi - I opted for clear upper and lower. Had to pay more the lower ones but as I work in retail, I really didn't want it to be too obvious. Funnily enough, very few people have noticed that I have them on. (Its been two weeks) Only when really close, do people notice and say something. Everyone has a...

Re: Waterpik

The new Ultra waterpik seems great ! I love filling the reservoir with warm water as they suggest as it is a nice feeling in mouth with no sharp aches on teeth! This newer model seems fairly quiet - I was surprised and it is a nice neat unit. I used it this morning and will tonite as it is fun to us...

Re: Waterpik

Well, after reading about the lack of pressure with the cordless, I have purchased the Ultra ! Was only $24 more to go from a cordless to the whole machine ! I am going to try it tonite and love the idea of all the attachments and the 10 pressure settings. My flossing has been hard work up to now (2...

Re: Waterpik

I am thinking of buying the waterpik cordless ( as I could take it to work/ travel etc).

Any reviews re the Ultra vs the cordless ?

Re: getting braced in 6 days!

Hi NeilH, Have had my braces on now 10 days and it all seems pretty ok. Lots of pressure feelings more each day which must mean teeth on the move !! My main relief was after two days being able to eat a sandwich (without crusts, toast, have my thin dark chocolate squares and being able to eat ok !) ...

Feeling teeth pressure

Hi - Its been one week now in braces and mostly at night, but sometimes during the day,I am feeling that tooth pressure/ slight pain feeling with the braces within the tooth itself. I don't really mind it as it means 'work under way' and even after one week, I am sure I can see a difference. Do you ...

Re: Does anyone actually have traditional metal braces anymo

I opted for the clear upper and bottom as I work in retail talking to customers all day and really didn't want a braces look ! My first day at work and hardly anyone even noticed them - that was the staff who knew I was getting them ! I spoke to a friend from another shop for 5 minutes and she never...
