You WILL get over the embarrassment stage. Then you will start to notices changes and get all excited. Towards the end you will lo...

Re: the end of my SMS journey, at last!

Congratulations on your beautiful new smile! Your teeth look great! My orthodontist says 14 hours a day. His instructions that he hands out basically says to go to work or school without them in and then put them in for the rest of the day and night. Obviously I am wearing mine during the day also. ...

Re: 57 and braces again

Hi Uptown Girl, glad to hear from you. Life without braces is great but there is still the daily retainers to pop in and out. At least I can take them out when I want a casual few hours and feel normal again...lol.... My teeth are just starting to firm up where I can eat more things. They were prett...

Re: 57 and braces again

Thanks everyone for your kind words. I am surprised how many people did notice I got my braces off and complimented me on my teeth. Brushing and flossing is so nice and easy. On a side note, on my golf league I got paired up yesterday with another lady golfer who has braces on. She is 68 years old. ...

My bottomed teeth still feel so wonky especially right after I take out my lower essix retainer (plus,I have the fixed one that is only attached at the canines). G...

Re: Over 50 and Embracing Our Braces!

Congrats and good luck! I still can't believe that I had braces on for 20 months and now they are off!! It went so fast! It was worth every moment of it. And YES, people have noticed that my braces are off and I have received so many compliments. Then they will ask me, "how long were they on for?" W...

Re: 57 and braces again

Here is my naked teeth picture. Sorry for the delay in posting but May is a very busy month for me. I love the way they have come out. I was not too picky about a few things (mid-line is off and slight over jet) but I got corrected the things that were important to me. :jump: I would encourage anyon...

Re: Help! Mouth ulcers with retainers!

He said he feels I am not allergic to the essix retainer because if I did have an allergic reaction that my gums would be all red and inflamed and they are not. He feels it was from the poorly fitted upper Hawley retainer. We also trimmed down a few h...
