Re: I will get debraced soon....

Yay! I'm so happy for you. I couldn't believe how much better they looked without the metal, it seems that the actual braces magnify anything remotely 'imperfect' x10000! Can't wait to see pics, enjoy!

Re: Dirty molars/teeth

Thank you Melusine. I've stopped using it now. I was told to by my dentist but he never told me for how long! Cleaning twice a day thoroughly with an electric toothbrush and colgate whitening toothpaste seems to be making a difference. I'm just using my usual 0% alcohol Listerine mouthwash! Again, t...

Re: Dirty molars/teeth

Thank you! I never thought of that but it's only happened since I started using corsodyl. I'm going to stop using it and go back to my listerine. I gave them a really good clean with my electric toothbrush and they're looking less stained already! Again, thanks.

Re: Dirty molars/teeth

Yes I floss as well, I can't floss on my top front 6 teeth because I've got a permanent retainer, hence why I use to interdental brushes there instead. No, my gums have never bled before!

Dirty molars/teeth

Hi everyone, I haven't been on here for so long, since I had my braces off! But I have a question that isn't brace related but still teeth related. I am extremely careful with my dental hygiene. I brush my teeth for at least 2 mins twice a day, use interdental brushes twice a day and currently using...

Re: Canted Smile - help please?!

Exactly, all we do is scrutinise our mouths when we have braces. I remember before having them never even thinking I had horrible teeth because no one ever pointed them out! Infact when I asked people near the end of my treatment if they remembered what they were like before, pretty much everyone re...

Re: Canted Smile - help please?!

Anna95 I'm not 100% positive really because near the end I came to terms with the fact that my teeth wouldn't be perfect so I stopped analysing them so much! I have to say, my bite/teeth looked and felt much better after wearing 'box' elastics for a few months. I'm not sure of the technical term for...

Re: Canted Smile - help please?!

vegathestar, unfortunately it turned out that my smile was canted due to my actual jaw being canted itself. As with Anna95, my ortho did as much as possible to straighten it up with elastics, which he did pretty well. To give you some peace of mind though, once my braces came off the cant was much l...

Re: Debraced! Pictures included

Also, I just wanted to add, thank you for all your support on the forum whilst in braces, it's really awesome to be able to talk freely about your worries and have such kind, reassuring answers. I'll definitely still be checking back on here and I'm sure I'll still have questions (retainers are such...

Debraced! Pictures included

Hi everyone! Hope you're all okay :) This morning I had my braces taken off! I had them on for nearly 20 months, my original 'sentence' was 18 months so I'm really pleased. I'm going to put in a few pictures of when I first had them on for comparison. I'm aware they're not absolutely perfect but in ...
