Re: Can't bite down after braces

I had this problem too, so they put 'bite blocks' or whatever you want to call them on my molars, little bumps of glue, so I can't bite down properly, but I won't nip my bracket off :) so yes tell your orthodontist, and you'll get some too :)

Re: So excited to get braces!

Oh and the sad thing is that the treatment coordinator told me that the orthodontist will probably want to have me in Damon brackets :( :( :( I was so looking forward to having colors! LOL! I am sure I sound ridiculous but I'm a tiny bit sad to be honest. Maybe I will just get the colored rubber ba...

Re: Confess your orthodontic sins.

On several occasions I opened all (8) of my Damon brackets and took the wire out to have a look at it. I have often thought about doing that, but was afraid it might turn out like some of my home repairs which ends up with me going to a hardware store seeking guidance on how to undo my "repair." Yo...

[quote="sirwired"][quote="djspeece"]I do eat popcorn, but carefully to avoid crunching on an unpopped hull.[/quote] The prohibition on popcorn isn't because of unpopped kernels; the most they could do would be to bend a wire or pop a bracket.

Re: Has anyone used "GC tooth mousse"

I haven't been using it long, but yes I got it from my dentist to try. Suppose to be good for sensitivity and staining. I'm using it to help with sensitivity. And don't worry I've got a lot of fillings too *sigh*. But no more since I'm changing my diet (curetoothdecay)

Re: What toothpaste and mouthwash are you using?

[quote="TMJJill"]My orthodontist recommends VitaMyr Zinc Plus toothpaste with Xylitol. It is an all natural fluoride free, sugar free, low-abrasive toothpaste. The main ingredients are: Zinc, Folic Acid, Clove and Myrrh, Grapefruit Seed extract and CoQ10. It is a bit 'spicy' in taste vs. the 'sweet'...
