Re: Tooth extraction and getting scared!

Hi, As others have stated the actual tooth extraction is very quick in most cases, and painless. However, if you have any doubts at all. I really recommend speaking to your ortho as to why he feels he needs to take 4 teeth out. The Orthos answers should put you at ease, but if you are still not sure...

Re: Countdown 3 days to full Incognito top and bottom....

Hi,

I haven't heard of the Alastick's either, must be a new thing as you stated. I have only had the loop type ones that iob posted a link to. You definitely feel them pulling and those particular teeth can be a bit sensitive the day after.

Good luck with your treatment, I replied to your PM.

Re: Incognito upper and lower just fitted.

1 day down, what have I learned so far. Pain is currently zero, but I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. I am already missing some of the foods I used to love. I am quickly falling in love with wax, and so is my tongue. I have a strong lisp, but I am working on it :wink: I love my waterpik, i...

Incognito upper and lower just fitted.

So, I just got back from the Ortho after having Incognito upper and lowers fitted. All in all it took about 1.5 hours and was not too bad an experience, really. Thanks to those that had posted up their experiences on this board, I knew exactly what to expect. Although my mouth now feels a bit smalle...

Re: braces off tomorrow!

That's the Incognito Lite right ? Glad to hear you are happy with the results. Was the contouring something you requested or was it your Ortho's suggestion ? It would be great to see before/after pics if you had them ? In 5 days time I'm getting full Incognito upper and lower braces for 2 years :sho...

Re: Incognito Fitting Experiences..

Well, got a call from the Ortho today saying Incognito are requesting another impression :( Just when I thought that part was over! looks like my fitment date may be pushed back as I was due to be fitted Feb 18th, but due to the holidays the first appointment to get the impressions done is January 1...

Re: Nervous about not liking result

I did a lot of research before committing to braces, there is a common theme I have observed. 1) Everyone is nervous and second guesses their decisions before getting fitted. 2) Most people say their only regret is they had done it sooner. 3) People are very honest about their experiences, so there ...

Re: Incognito Fitting Experiences..

Doesn't sound too bad and I think anybody would have jaw ache if they had to open their mouth for 3 hours! *Mental Note* try not to taste the glue! It's funny you should mention the impressions, I ended up getting 3 upper and 3 lower impressions as the Ortho wanted to make sure there were no problem...

Re: Day 3 of lingual braces (Win) - upper and lower

Winwired, I hadn't heard of them so thought I would ask. Look forward to seeing your progress photos if you are able to get them, see the progress is what makes it all worthwhile, after all.

Re: Jealous and frustrated.

The good thing is you're never too old to get braces, the bad news is you may have to pay for them yourself! Nothing wrong with being jealous, people can use those feelings in different ways, some get mad, others use it in a more positive way to drive them to get that thing they want so badly. Try t...

Incognito Fitting Experiences..

I am being fitted with Incognito upper and lower in the new year. I have a few questions if you are able to remember back to when your linguals were fitted. How long did it take for upper and lower? Any pain/discomfort during fitting ? Do you remember what was involved ? I have read they sort of 'sa...

Re: Here's my Journey

Hi, Looking forward to reading your progress as you will be about 2 months ahead of me. Good tip on the wires at the back and it's definitely something I will double check after being fitted. Let us know if you see a big improvement after you get them trimmed. Did your Ortho say how long your treatm...
