Re: Starting my journey!

I would get... some kind of blue I think! Oh I'd have to try a few :D I'm really disappointed I haven't got to try them :( I need to update! I have totally neglected this. Oops. I am now just over 7 months in to treatment. Last appointment (in... January) my orthodontist asked if there's anything I'...

Re: Confess your orthodontic sins.

Christmas was just... we don't want to talk about it. I guzzled red wine, I ate so much chocolate I physically can't eat any more at the moment, I've gone off it. I ate so much curry that my braces are now a lovely shade of brown. Bad, I was bad. I sinned... oh boy I sinned. I have an adjustment tod...

Re: Confess your orthodontic sins.

OK... I posted on this thread a little while ago. I felt better than you all, I felt well behaved, I felt all saintly and good. That didn't last. I'm four months (and a bit) in to treatment and... I'm probably an orthodontists worst nightmare. I have to say that I haven't broken anything yet though!...

Re: Starting my journey!

Haha. I'm going to try living without curry for a while I think! (We'll give it a week max...) I've loved seeing all these coloured powerchains on here, I was a bit disappointed when my ortho said she only has clear!

What do you eat?

After adjustments? I had my second adjustment yesterday and I'm so sore. It was painful for a couple of days after the first one but this one seems worse (the new powerchain is probably the culprit!) It took me half hour to eat one piece of toast for breakfast (cold toast wasn't very appetising haha...

Re: Lig colours (colors)

The bumpers and ligs on my lower teeth are silver (sort of a clear silver).

Re: Lig colours (colors)

Bumping! I haven't had coloured ligs since my first adjustment :( My orthodontist assumed I wanted silver last time (probably because I'm an adult haha) and only realised afterwards that I may have wanted to pick another colour. I quite liked the silver though. Yesterday I got powerchains (OUCH) on ...

Re: Starting my journey!

Here's a quick picture, I took it yesterday to send to a friend (as you do!) I like how fresh they look at the moment with the clear powerchain... I'm sure they won't be looking that way for long though :lol: Sorry about the skin, I've been having a reaction to toothpaste, trying to figure out what ...

Re: Starting my journey!

It's been a while! I will update properly with pics soon, I'm in a bit of a rush to get to my guitar lesson though so will make this short for now. I had my second adjustment yesterday! I feel like my teeth are looking great. At first my molars wouldn't touch because of the bumpers on my lower teeth...

Re: Not flossing

I've been thinking of trying those ones on the plastic holders (if that makes sense :lol:) but how easy is it to get them behind the wires? I think you can get orthodontic ones, right? Is that what you mean?

Not flossing

How bad is it? I am so upset. I fell off my bike at the weekend and now have a cast which covers all my fingers of my left hand. It's on for at least two weeks. Flossing is literally impossible. I'm so worried about it. How bad is not flossing for those two weeks going to be? Reassure me, please? I ...

Re: Teeth never feel clean enough

My fiance told me last night while I was brushing my teeth that he thinks I must have the most spectacular collection of toothbrushes and tooth cleaning implements in our area, that other people with braces would be jealous :lol: I'll take that as a compliment!

Re: Teeth never feel clean enough

Haha I keep imagining I can see plaque and nasties on my teeth but then realise it's the shadows from the wires. Oh I'm going to be so worried at my first appointment. I feel like she's going to take the wire out and it's going to be covered in plaque. To ease my anxiety I've done an epic 30 minute ...

Re: Teeth never feel clean enough

Oh I hope so! I think it may be the pressure from the braces that makes it feel like there's stuff in my teeth all the time, no idea! I always feel like I need to brush my teeth again right after brushing them.

These things are a worry :lol:

Re: Got my Waterpik!!

I finally ordered myself a Waterpik (from Amazon) which arrived today. I'm so excited about it! I tried it for the first time after lunch today. I used it before brushing (added a bit of mouthwash) and my mouth already felt really clean before I'd even started brushing. It's much more powerful than ...
