Re: Adult braces while using Acceledent

Looks great Kevin!

As to whitening, I've had pretty good results with Crest 3D Whitestrips Luxe Professional Effects. Got em on Amazon.

Re: Freaking Out!!!

One time, my ortho put a bend in the wire and within a few days it was real obvious that the movement taking place was not what was desired, so they had me come in and she totally agreed and changed things again. I didn't want to wait until my next regular appt, because it was so obviously wrong and...

Re: End of treatment hesitation

Hi moses, Looking pretty good I think! I'm a little surprised they didn't put a bracket and power chain on the rear molar. That would have prevented the space, but as Aspiring said, a new crown would most likely fix that. The gap next to your central is not that noticeable when looking at your smile...

Re: Life Behind Brackets

All right metallika, time to fess up...

Sometime between your first post and now, you snuck off and had porcelain veneers installed, yes?!?

Seriously though, you have natural beautifully shaped teeth and now that they are lined up... WOW!

Re: Adult braces while using Acceledent

Hi Kevin, How's it going?

I agree with the others about changing orthos. You may be able to recover some money from your first ortho because he will not be finishing the treatment
or the retainer work.

Re: Wonky to Wonderful: My Smile Renovation

Looks awesome! Your ortho may be planning on filing that central a bit to square it off which will make a big difference :)

Keep up the good work!

Re: Doug's Journey

Hi all! It's been a while since I've updated my progress so here we are at 17 months. Wow! Does time pass quickly! I'm not really happy with how my centrals look ever since ortho put a small step bend in the wire, to correct something that I couldn't see, lol. Midline has a cant to it that is buggin...

Re: 19 Years Old: Braces Round 2 with Damon on top and bottom.

Hi Ig, Do you wear those elastics full time? At my last appointment, I was assigned triangle elastics hooked on the top cuspids (3's) to two brackets underneath on the bottom. Similar to your setup only one tooth back. I find that I am too self-conscious to wear them at work, so I don't. Looking for...

Yeah, having my back molars hooked up made it hard for me to eat as well... maybe for 3 days.

My bite has improved a lot though since though.

Re: Doug's Journey

Hi Gang! I had my appt last week and now have molar bands on my back 4 molars so now all teeth are hooked up. It hurt a bit for the first few days but it's ok now. Had to step back a notch on the arch wires and go from SS to NiTi (18 x 22 I think I heard her say)in order to connect the back molars. ...
