Re: 29 - Braces Journey (terrified)

Very nice progress! The upper arch really rounded out on the last photo you showed!

I go for my final post braces ortho check up on June 26, I think my teeth stayed very well in place after braces.

Best of luck with the rest of your braces journey, congrats on going for it!

Re: Essix and drooling

Hey! So I've been wearing upper and lower essix retainers for 21 months and the experience you're describing still happens to me occasionally, but not too often ( only using essix at night now though). It's annoying yes, but I guess the saliva just runs over the plastic like a slide... :o On a diffe...

Re: Anyone else here is completelly paranoid with cavities?

If you brush regularly there should not be a problem. And for sure regularly rise with water and mouthwash. I had perfect teeth ( cavity wise ) until I had to wear the essix/clear retainers after braces for 24/7 for 8 months and now for life at night. I'm finding that a few teeth are developing smal...

Re: Dude Braces @ 25 --- MapleLeafMan888 My Story

Hey so I wanted to make a post seeing as how today is exactly one year since having my braces removed! My teeth have stayed real straight as I am doing the night time retainer wear and will be for life. The bonded retainers and hanging in there as well, really don't notice them anymore. I had a trip...

Re: Permanent top retainer?

I have permanent retainers on the upper and lower, also wear clear removable retainers on the upper and lower at night only now. If the ortho places them in the right spot they shouldn't touch and should be fine. There's really no reason to not get upper fixed retainers, flossing takes maybe a coupl...

Re: Retainer Feeling Tight?

I've been given the go ahead for night wear also yesterday and I find mine is really tight especially in the front. My teeth have a dull ache in the front today ( first day not wearing my retainer in the day.) Anyone else experience this? Wonder if his goes away after time?

Yeah what else are you going to do though? If they take the blocks off your teeth will probably hit the brackets.
