Re: How do you clean your retainer?

I was told a soft brush and cold water whenever I take it out for food/before bed/to freshen up and then use a denture cleaner regularly, but the one I have been using from boots is 90p for a months supply so I've been using it every day

Bite issues and essix retainer

I have essix retainers top and bottom, and I have to wear them 24/7 for six months. I only got them today but it really bothers me that I can't bite properly with them, as in there is a gap between the upper and lower teeth at the front, but the plastic further back touches? I'm hoping this is due t...

Can't wait to see pictures. Good luck! I didn't mind getting them off at all, the only thing that felt uncomfortable really was the friction heat from having the glue filed off!

Re: Roses' braces

Hi Rose! Looks like we're getting debraced on the same day. How exciting! :D Awesome! Not long now. I am so excited. Also I remember at the very beginning for the first week or so when my teeth were really tender, I would read about people who were about to get their braces off and it seemed like t...

Re: Brackets on the second molars?

I have all brackets too. I feel we are the lucky ones as I do not like the sound of spacers at all!

Re: How long were you in your finishing wire?

I have only got my finishing wire for about 2 months total! It isn't that much thicker at all than my last one which I had for about 7 months? Hope this makes you feel better aha!

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

That sucks that your date got pushed back :( How often are your adjustments now? I would be tempted to ask every time when they would be coming off, and try and gauge whether they have actual concerns or just want to drag out the treatment time for money. Still though, February and March aren't too ...

Re: Braceface at 31

Congrats on getting your braces! I have molar build ups too because I accidentally bit off one of my brackets on the lower molars, and I have had them for so long now I forget about them completely. Looking forward to seeing your progress :)

Re: Possible root canal while wearing braces

I had a root canal done on a premolar a few months ago with my braces :) My dentist did the root canal with the bracket and wire still on the tooth, and then I went to the ortho to get the bracket removed as per my dentist's wishes. However they broke part of the tooth off when removing the bracket,...

Re: Roses' braces

I have been given my debrace date! I am so pleased I can't even begin to explain. 20th of January and I'll be free of wires and brackets! I know the essix retainers will be hard work for a while but at least I can actually brush properly. Nearly there! That's great news, congratulations. Thank you ...
