Re: Finally starting the implant process

It went pretty good I had to be awake, but they numbed me up pretty well so I didn't feel any pain in my gums for most of the procedure; but near the end when they were doing the final stitches I started being able to feel the pain; i tried to just let them finish, but the dentist could tell I was s...

Finally starting the implant process

Tomorrow morning I'm getting a bone graft done, I'm a bit nervous about the whole thing, but my work week is done so I will get the procedure done and then be able to relax and try to enjoy myself the rest of the week. I don't know what to expect, but the biggest thing in my mind right now is the ex...

Glad it worked out in the end!
Thats what I did to make them usable, otherwise they wouldn't have fit at all.

Mistake almost cost me $400

At Thanksgiving dinner i lost my retainers (in my living room); then found them after a lot of frustration, then i was impatient with cleaning them so i just left them in a bowl of how water. They warped and shrunk and i was barely able to get them back in a close enough shape to use while i waited ...

Its been about 2.5 weeks; still doesn't seem like the clear retainer did anything to close to gap.

Re: How bad do my teeth look?

They dont look terribly crooked, although the Overbite (if thats what it is) is pretty obvious.

Only an Orthodontist could really tell you how bad it is and what you are going to need after they evaluate it.

I still have 2 Dental Implants to get; which w...

Braces Are Off!!!!

Im thrilled to have them off, the only bad thing is that theres a small gap between 2 of my bottom teeth; they have noticed it at my Ortho office (said it should close within a few days and did more impressions to alter my retainers) and if it doesnt close they will put on buttons and a chain to clo...
