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

I went from braces off to only wearing my Essix retainer at night on top. I have the permanent on my lower arch and no other retainer for lower. 8 months went by fast! You lucky girl lol! Have you been finding your result to be stable? Any tightness when you put the retainer in at night? Yes it sur...

Re: New to the board

Hey TrustGodAuburn, I seem to recall that you had a lower incisor that stubbornly refused to derotate. I think I'm in the same boat -- since my last adjustment this tooth has even rotated the other way a little bit, not good! What did the ortho do that finally resolved the issue for you? My ortho d...

Re: New to the board

I remember the essix feeling so huge at first but like everything else you'll get use to it more and then the retainer will feel like it belongs. I'm a wee bit jealous you went straight to nightime wear right away! I have 2 months of full time wear left. Any friends/family/contacts notice your brac...

Re: New to the board

Would just like to announce that I just ate a sugar-free chewy caramel and it was DIVINE!

And it's not stuck anywhere :BigGrin:

Re: New to the board

Congrats, what a huge change! Your result is awesome, I'm happy for you! Enjoy being brace free :D How are you finding the essix? Thanks!!! I feel pretty naked without the braces! It is an odd feeling. My teeth still feel obnoxiously large to me! I think the first treatment to even out my coloring ...

Re: New to the board

Beautiful result! Congratulations! Your 'before' looks a lot like my husband's teeth now -- which is probably how my kids' will also look in a few years if we don't do Phase I braces. It's good to see that such a nice result is possible. The natural shape of your individual teeth is really lovely! ...

Re: New to the board

How'd it go? The suspense is killing me! Ha! I'm brace free!!! Woohoo!!! I'm happy to report that my recurrent nightmare where my teeth popped off with the braces did NOT come true! They whole process of removing them took about 90 minutes including the photos and impressions and the bonded retaine...

Re: New to the board

Well not really, whenever my removable retainers are out my tongue is constantly going over the wires. If you don't like having permanent retainers after a while there's always the option of removal. I will probably be getting mine removed in the near future. Good luck with your braces removal tomo...

Re: New to the board

Amazing transformation! Congratulations. Your top and bottom arches have came a long way. If you think about it, that one tooth stopped your braces from being removed a long time ago. But it was worth it to finally see it rotate. I have only been in braces for 2.5 months and I sure was glad to see ...
