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

Dude! Congratulations! Just read your whole journey and your teeth look bloody amazing. I'm getting mine off in one week but I'm still not 100% happy with them. My concern is the slight cant I have, speaking of which, were you able to get yours corrected or did the ortho just brush it off? And also,...

Re: Who knew these tiny blue spacers could hurt so much....

Spacers for me were fine. It's different for everyone and I made the mistake of watching clips on youtube too, but there was absolutely no pain for me. The worse part would be the first 2 days of getting the braces on, not gonna like, it's gonna hurt sooooo bad.

Re: Cost of braces in Australia

I have both metals upper and lower. Total cost of treatment was $6K for 24 months (I think), but my health insurance pays $2.1K, so my total cost is $3.9K. I, however, had 4 pre-molars out which was about $150 altogether.

Re: Nervous. Extraction tomorrow, braces next week.

Got 4 pre-molars extracted last month and it wasn't all that bad, trust me! The only thing that is bad is the needles, like damn they were a pain! (literally). I think I was able to still talk normally like I did with braces on, but probably a little mumbly but it returned to normal about a couple o...

Re: i think i am going to eat less:)

I'm actually surprised that I have gained weight during my time with braces (currently at 3.5 months). I was scared that was gonna lose so much weight but eating for me hasn't bean that hard. To be honest though, I have no chewed on any of my sides since I had braces, I have been using my tongue to ...

Re: Why ceramic on top and metal on bottom?

I was also offered ceramics at my consultation and the lady said that having ceramics on the bottom would mean that the top arch may hit the bottom arch since ceramics are bigger than normal metal braces. Currently I have all metal though, didn't want to pay extra for ceramics considering people cou...

Re: Powerchain on top front teeth?

Currently have two powerchains on each arch to close my extraction gaps. I've only had them on for about 2 weeks and already I see a massive improvement in the closure of the gaps, especially the top arch. It's incredible. The first couple of days were a pain, literally, but as of now, they haven't ...

Re: Starting to notice everyone's teeth!

This is the same with me! I find it really strange, like when I talk to my friends or someone new, my head directly stares at their teeth ahah

Re: No pain since braces

My braces journey has been great so far and I'm only 3ish months in. I've read a lot of stuff online before I got them on and other people telling me their experiences and I thought I was in for a tough ride, but it's been extremely pleasant. I've only had pain after getting them tightened, but apar...
