Quick fix with braces for one month. Such a thing possible?

So I've already had and completed my treatment a while ago. I was very happy with my teeth until my wisdom teeth started to crowd them a little. I'm not being crazy I am absolutely certain that my teeth were crowded a little and it really sucks. After treatment the wisdom teeth were barely out, and ...

Re: Wearing elastic rubber bands - I like it - Weird?

I'm sorry you're alone on this one.
LOL I hated them.
Ah the number of elastics I accidently swallowed while eating. :oops:

They worked like magic for my cross bite though.

Re: Fixed and removable retainer- are both necessary?

I got the same. My ortho said that ideally I should have the Essix retainers 8 hours a day. I sleep with them, they give me a pathetic lisp btw, but there is no bleeding. There is SOME discomfort and a little bit of pain but nothing that is the slightest bit unbearable. I think you should consult th...

Perfectly fitting Essix is assurance of teeth staying put?

I apologize for making a new thread, but obviously just like a lot of others, since debracing, I have become SO paranoid. My new paranoia is my impacted wisdom teeth will crowd my teeth. I cannot afford to remove them yet, but am aware that I will have to(they don't cause pain now). To keep me sane ...

Re: Ortho removing braces tomorrow. Please advice (PICS)

You're welcome for the compliment! Its the truth! And I am still so jealous! Lol! You should be fine with the permanent and removable retainers.. those wisdom teeth just make me nervous. I had mine out at 19, and I'm 27 now, so I don't have to worry about them now. That being said, I also know how ...

Re: Ortho removing braces tomorrow. Please advice (PICS)

Cadet, your teeth are beautiful! So so jealous! Congrats on the naked teeth! Is it your ortho's plan to allow your wisdom teeth to come in? Do they have room??? Hey! Thank you so much. No he actually advices that I remove it because it will eventually start hurting when it gets infected. He says it...

Re: Anyone using permanent retainer(in the back)? / sore tee

Hi Cadet, When I got my braces off back when I was a teenager I had a hawley retainer for my upper. My lower only had a permanent retainer for the six teeth. My teeth were straight for years until my permanent retainer broke and I never went back to get it fixed. On the other hand my brother has ha...

Anyone using permanent retainer(in the back)? / sore teeth

My ortho put the permanent retainers on the top and bottom 6 teeth, and gave me the see through retainers for night time only. Should this be good enough? I'm worried that the retainers from the back are only attached to the front 6 teeth. Is this okay? Also. I de braced yesterday and my teeth are s...

Re: Ortho removing braces tomorrow. Please advice (PICS)

Your teeth look great! So straight and even. And your bite looks great too! They will look even better when you get them cleaned/whitened (whatever you are planning in 10 days!) How did you find de-bracing? I don't envy you having to get all those ceramics off! Ouch! Are you in retainers now? How a...
