Re: So excited to get braces!

Things are so moving along with your treatment well! I am sorry you had that much pain. I hew sugar free orbit. It has helped a lot and one little piece so it relieves some pain but won't get tangled in my braces. My ortho said I could :) Yeah I am not looking forward to Tuesday and the possibility ...

Re: Depressed in the beginning?

Awww hun, all I can say is try not to baby things too much. Speech issues and sore issues are more aggravating and worse when babied more often. I think you need to do it, and just let go hun, really you need to just be yourself! :) Go to the Summer show and do your thing, you are way more into temp...

Re: Newbie! Advice please :)

MissBraces, I am halfway through my 3rd week of braces, so far only uppers, and I am happy with them for now. No real issues, lots of adjustments, but considering I only had 3 bad days so far I am thankful! :) My first adjustment is August 19th. I have Self-Ligating Metal American Orthodontics Empow...

Re: Braces coming off too soon?

If there is root issues it is better for the braces to come off I would think. I would go along with my Ortho, but express my concerns and listen to his/her reasoning. Better to have imperfect teeth than implants and damaged teeth.

Re: A Whole New World

That would be awesome if they did a cleaning :) Mine just did a typical brace day cleaning. The surfaces were cleaned but not scraped and such like my dentist. There was a rough paste stuff, then a blue gel. My teeth were dried and the bonding glue put on. The brackets were placed, and the Ortho cam...

Re: A Whole New World

My xrays consisted of me standing there, an ear peice attached to the machine went into each ear and the machine arm went around me. Took a minute or two. My molds took about 10/15 minutes each tooth was scanned. It was really cool to see a 3D model of my teeth on the screen. There was not a whole l...
