Re: Today was my lucky day!!! I got braced!

Congrats!!!! :jump: I wish you the easy, exciting and pleasant journey! Please let us know how it goes! P.S. Sorry to say, but the discomfort will most likely not go away in 3 days. For me, it was still ramping up at 3 days, and I only started feeling a little bit of relief after 2 weeks. I hope it...

Re: Over the counter painkillers affect teeth movement?

I have no idea, I've also never heard of such a thing. I would say if you are supposed to be wearing elastics do it. Don't take them off because it hurts. A doubt Tylenol or equivalent would affect teeth movement. But then again I am no dentist :)

Re: Having a Cleaning With Braces On?

Everything went awesome better than I thought. Used some numbing mouth rinse before and I barley felt a thing. Worst part was putting the arch wire back in on a sensitive front one..brought tears to my eyes!! But as far as the cleaning all was good. She even blasted off some staining I was having fr...

Re: What do you miss eating?

I miss popcorn :( and corn nuts! We recently went to the state fair and I realized i could not eat just about everything I liked :( no corn dogs on sticks, all food seemed to be mobile food made to be bitten into and walked around with not torn and cut apart. It was a little depressing, but then the...

Re: Can Essix retainers make you sick?

Yeah..your preg or you are worrying so much about it you can actually make yourself nauseous. The brain is a powerful projector to the body. Think it hurts? It hurts. Think the retainer is making you feel like puking? You will puke. Nice plug from the admin to their sponsors site. May be making you ...

Re: Debraced!! Huzzah!!

They look great! Now was there some gum loss? Is this common? I noticed this on one in between of my teeth but wasn't sure if it was because there is a gap there now. Does the gun grow back on to the teeth?

Re: Brace confusion

I agree with the other posters. Go get a second opinion at another ortho, it will bother you until you do. Keep all that paper work saying they are Damon braces. Also check the price at your first ortho while calling anonymous, just to see the price difference. If it is significant, and these are no...

Re: 6 Month Progress - For those thinking about it ... Do it

Wow! I have a lower eye tooth like yours. What made them determine you had to have one pulled? I'm missing a molar so there is room for mine...wonder if it will throw my jaw off? I don't want a lop sided jaw :(

Re: Can I use my elec toothbrush on 6 month smile?

I use my sonicare electric toothbrush just fine. I notice the bristles are wearing out faster but does the trick well. Manuel just doesn't cut it for me :) I'm sure it would be ok for you too.

Re: Having a Cleaning With Braces On?

I just had my first cleaning since I had my braces put on. They did some kind of water powered / below the gum-line cleaning that they do for people with braces and then the regular cleaning after that. Didn't feel a thing and was out of there in 20 min. How long have you been braced? Did any of yo...

I like to get a cleaning every six months but time did not allow for it before my braces went on. At my next scheduled "tightening" ...

Re: What do you feel....

I feel like tiny little worker people are pushed up and pressing and hammering at the inside of my bottom teeth. Lol! I have crowding on my lower and things need to move over almost an entire tooth distance. I also have the fast braces so all this should happen within 9 months to a year. My tops hav...

Now I def feel them moving...and it hurts...and it sucks...and I can't eat..and when I do I look like a bab...
