Re: So no one was able to talk me out of it...

So... They don't really fee huge in my mouth. Nothing I can't overcome there. The scratchiness is on and off, and the occasional dull pain. They don't really feel tight. Just tender. I can't bight down all of the way, because a molar band won't allow me to. With that being said, if I can't bight dow...

So no one was able to talk me out of it...

I finally did it. The tops are on. I can say that it is NOTHING like what I thought it would be. But it's not as bad as I thought it would be either. They feel tight, more scratchy than anything else. The tightness has nothing over the scratchyness. No one has seen them yet, but I'm scared to see re...

Re: Talk me out of doing it...

Well, as I suspected, no one has really talked me out of it... merely just reassured me, that as everyone KEEPS saying, they aren't that bad at all. Its funny to me, that even those who 'try' to talk me out of it, make it sound so trivial to the point that they are struggling to even create a negati...

Talk me out of doing it...

I still haven't got braces yet, and I am very close to pulling the trigger. If you search my posts you will find that I have been nothing but a big chicken. However, I have researched what feels likes all corners of the internet, and a large percentage of what I find, is actually positive. Nothing t...

Re: I want that near perfect smile :(

I have not got braces yet. Had I just gone and done it already, I would be out of them already. I know what you feel like as far as wanting that perfect smile, and before I clicked to see you pictures, I expected your teeth to be like mine. Not all that bad, but want to tweak things to get "perfect"...

Re: Having a metal wire with clear braces?

I'm sure they're working on wires that are transparent with similar properties to those in use now. When that is accomplished some person or corporation will make tons of money and there will be millions of happy ortho patients. http://www.simpliclearpro.com/the-simpliclear-system/overview/index.html

Re: Question for you guys

If I were the owner of dentakit, I would do it... Let me explain. I am going to be very honest, so I hope that no readers are offended. I dont know the analytics for dentakit, nor do I know your specific demo, so I am kinda shooting in the dark. I DO find those types of chat windows annoying, and I ...

Re: Do you ever "get used to" a bonded retainer?

I have had mine since late 2011 and I feel it every day.

On the flip side. I don't believe people who say that you "get used to" braces. Larger and on the front of your teeth.

So I guess it depends on the person.

Maple888 You bring up an interesting counter point. You talked about this to your best friend and they were supportive right? I can almost bet you that if I told my friend that I was going to get braces that he would call me superficial or something like this. That I care too much about my image yad...

"Adult" braces

I feel like I have read something like this before, and maybe even brought it up. But here goes... This bothers me. Since I have been considering braces lately, along with doing all of the research, what is the difference between braces and "adult" braces Apparently there is NO DIFFERENCE! So why do...

Re: Want braces, but fear is getting the best of me.

I will probably get metal braces. As you can see from above, I originally started with invisalign, but it didnt really do what I expected. Everyone always talks about the first few days, but I think that is my biggest fear. What does it actually feel like for those first few days. What are you actua...

Re: Want braces, but fear is getting the best of me.

Well.... I made an appointment for a consultation. It is in about a month. So now I get to be anxious just to find out, then more time if I decide to go with it. Which means more time to chicken out.... I feel like I have come to grips more with getting braces. I just haven't fully convinced myself.

Fastest time from consultation to braces?

What is the fastest anyone has gone from going in for a consultation to getting braces?

I was just thinking that if I went in for a consultation and liked what I heard, could I just get it done and on before I had time to think?

Like ripping off a bandage.

Re: Braces Virgin No More at 25!

I think you can see a change, especially from your first picture to 9 weeks. I too think your teeth look good as "before" but I only say this, because it reminds me of about where my teeth are now. I had invisilign, but was not happy and want to get braces once and for all. So this is encouraging. A...
