Had Damon Clear for 10 days!

I think it is going well. Whether I am noticing things or not, it certainly already feels like I have had crazy movement in some teeth, in particular a pre-molar behind my canine which seems to have already come down by mm's!! Is that actually possible! It certainly looks to me like it has come down...

Just got Damon Clear today!

Yippee, I went through with it! Got them in 5 hrs ago, and soo far, zero discomfort at all! Eating is slow going, but I'll get used to it. Talking is 95% fine I'd say, a tiny bit of lisp'iness. However, I'm trying to figure out how the heck they work?!? It feels like there is almost no pressure at a...

Re: Small mouth and Damon braces...were you happy with resul

For anyone interested, here is an image of my upper arch. As you look at the picture: -I am hoping for the left incisor to be pushed back and into line -The right canine to be pushed back and into line - The right incisor to be pulled from behind the front tooth and into prominence - The left and ri...

Re: Braces at 40

Re: Anyone with assymetrical top front teeth (incisors?)

I've yet to see what will happen with my upper incisors. One of them juts out a bit and looks bulkier than the opposing one, a rugby injury 15 years ago meant I broke it and they built it up. The other incisor is slightly behind the central tooth, and even though I cant see it entirely it does look ...

Re: What was your deciding factor when choosing an orthodont

One of my criteria was to find someone that had some academic involvement, kinda implied a bit of giving back and deep knowledge of his subject area. The guy I chose happened to be the senior lecturer at a UK top 5 University, so after seeing 3 other ortho's (all of whom were good), I just plumped f...

Re: Small mouth and Damon braces...were you happy with resul

Is it an either\or between turbo's and molar build-ups then, cos my dental assessment says I will get turbo's?

I also like bacon crispy.....num num num.

Re: Small mouth and Damon braces...were you happy with resul

Thanks for the responses so far folks. Chichi, interesting you say that you still aren't biting into things yet. I asked my ortho's nurse how long it would take before I could chew normally, and she said about 2-3 weeks (used herself as a reference). I asked this because I am on my annual 2 week SUN...

Small mouth and Damon braces...were you happy with result?

Hey all I have a smallish mouth, and metaphorically a *big* mouth ;-) I'm getting Damon Clear in 2 weeks, and it's going to fix a jutting out upper incisor, jutting out canine, correct a 3mm crossbite, do some work on a small overbite, and generally align and straighten my upper teeth as much as pos...
