Perfect results!!! Did you have them whitened or were they that white at removal time? They look soooo good!

Warm salt water swishes may be worth a try.

Re: Doug's Journey

Good progress Doug! I am 52 also and understand your reservations but am glad I did it. I am 9.5 months in and have a great deal of progress. You will get used to them over time although it never gets "great" - you will always long to have the treatment complete. With that said, it does get easier...

Re: question about elastics

Something to note: I had elastics from day one and all throughout up until like my 6 or 7 month I experienced a lot of discomfort such as rubbing , internal soft tissue abrasions, etc that were at many times down right debilitating the majority of the 6-7 months. I always chalked the pain and uncomf...

Re: Any idea if I am no longer getting Forsus springs?

Wheezy, with all due respect, at this stage of the game I believe you should be asking these types of questions while you are at your appointment interacting with your Ortho. Have open conversations about your current state and desired state and associated timeline. It's easy for us to forget and I ...

Re: Are Electric Toothbrushes Really Better Than Manual Brus

Personally, I love the electronic tooth brush and end up with a super clean feeling after use versus using the standard manual brush.

Re: What will your celebration be?

Funny I already eat most of what you all have listed and I am in full Damon's. I will probably chew gum which I haven't in 8-9months. I know many on here chew gum w braces but I haven't done that yet. I haven't tried taffy or licorice either.

Re: New wires w/new post - what is it for?

Thanks for the replies...I already have had and continue an elastic regimen (as in 24/7 wear since day 1) and there is a bracket next to the tooth that has the new "pole" where I have been securing the elastic to my top tooth (only barely noticeable in the pic).

New wires w/new post - what is it for?

I have new wires and posts and chains. Does anyone know what these metal posts are supposed to be for? I also have wire wraps and some power chains. Want to know what specifically the posts are for. Thanks much!!
