Re: Damon Braces Journey/Open Bite

Guys I am so so sorry for completely disappearing, University and just life in general took over I suppose. I kept thinking oh I need to take snaps and upload them etc but you know how it is sometimes! The good news is I've seen brilliant progress and although I'm now way over my 18months - 2years e...

Re: Damon Braces Journey/Open Bite

Well that's awesome progress! I love seeing how the braces move the teeth! What was it like to have that palatal arch? Thanks maple, it wasn't too bad actually I only had it on for a short while as a section of it broke and my ortho said I might have to have it back on for a while when I move to th...

Re: Damon Braces Journey/Open Bite

Amazing progress! I'm just a month behind you and have also noticed that my teeth movement seems to have slowed down a lot in the past month or two. Or maybe it is just more difficult to see changes when our teeth start to be more organized :) Hi Professor, yes I do think because your teeth are sud...

Re: Damon Braces Journey/Open Bite

Well, here we are again, I had another adjustment yesterday. Things are moving a bit slower now and so there isn't as much movement since my last appointment however the pics below show my progress from the first day "Feb 27th" to now and I'm pretty pleased :D . I was wearing elastics since my last ...

Re: Damon Braces Journey/Open Bite

Hi Anna, Thank you :) the elastics are getting easier each day barely notice them some days now. And as far as I am aware I'm still going to be in them for the predicted 18-24 months. It is weird though because I didn't expect to be on elastics so soon and I'm also supposed to have my TPA bar put ba...

Re: Damon Braces Journey/Open Bite

Long time no speak! I went for an adjustment today and much to my excitement pfft! I'm now on elastics. They're making my mouth really ache at the minute but I'm hoping I'll get used to it. Gotta get used to having to take them out and put them in again for eating and brushing too. Hassle but it nee...

Re: Damon Braces Journey/Open Bite

Hello! I think you have made AMAZING progress, MIssred! Your open bite is much smaller now, and yes, your upper arch has definitely widened A LOT. I am sure your teeth will look so beautiful when you are done! Thank you Anna! :) I'm feeling a lot more positive as the months go by! Pretty sore today...

Re: Damon Braces Journey/Open Bite

Well, first of all I apologise for the picture quality, I can't seem to get to grips with my camera although taking pictures of teeth isn't exactly the easiest thing haha. I might try and use my iPhone next time. Anyway... Went for my adjustment this morning and it wasn't too bad at all! I've moved ...

Re: Damon Braces Journey/Open Bite

Hi all! Jeez it feels like ages since I've posted haha. Just a quick update to say I'm off for my third adjustment tomorrow. I'll post some pictures at some point later tomorrow for comparison. I'm not convinced there has been much movement, there are certain areas where I know teeth have moved but ...

Hello Missred, How are you doing now? I hope your treatment is going well. I am looking forward to your update, maybe some new pictures? Hi Anna, I'm doing fine :) I've had the odd couple of days where I feel like I've been kicked in the face but other than that it's been ok lol. I'm only uploading...

Re: Damon Braces Journey/Open Bite

Hi MissRed, have loved reading about your braces journey so far... Just wanted to ask you about the waterpik... Do you recommend a certain brand?? Are they an "ortho" thing or do most dentists recommend them? I had not even heard of them till I came on here... Maybe they're not that common in Oz......
