Re: Oral sex and lingual braces question!!

Only had lingual brackets on the top front 6 teeth but all was fine in this regard! if you were worried or wanted to be extra careful you can always cover the entire bracket area with silicone wax then there would be no sharp edges..

Re: Regretting incognito lite

I think I felt worst about my decision 3 weeks in! I got frustrated with it not feeling "normal" yet. I also had teeth that weren't *that* bad but enough to bother me to get front 6 teeth with incognito. It only took 7 months in the end (would have been 6 but I was on holiday) and it was totally wor...

Re: braces off tomorrow!

I've had incognito braces on the top front 6 teeth for 7 months- would have been finished a few weeks ago but my ortho was on holiday! I am totally happy with the alignment result, but am hoping they can make some additional contouring improvements. ..

Re: Getting rid of the lisp :((

My lisp was awful to begin with! and also very little/no pain. 6 months on my speech is normal and my teeth are straight - but there was an initial month or so before my tongue figured it out. I found the silicone wax invaluable in creating a totally smooth surface for my tongue to move across when ...

Re: Nervous about not liking result

I was also nervous about this. .. also I worried that it wouldn't even make much difference and it would be a wage of pain/money but actually the results are already fantastic and I only wish I'd done this sooner!

Last wire?

HI everyone, just wondering how long you had your last wireon for? Just had mine put in last week, have an appointment for 6wks later and was assuming it would be for a tightening as usual but then got my hopes up thinking perhaps he would just debond me! Any experience to share? Did you know you we...

Re: Top linguals, speech is TERRIBLE

Just a quick reply to say don't panic! I found the first fortnight a total struggle (upper lingual sectional brace on front 6 teeth)... Am now 5 months in and it is really not an issue. I use the wax /silicone stuff a lot not for the pain relief issue but for speech - literally mould it over the fro...
