Re: Emma in braces

Four weeks down, first adjustment today. Wow, that was painful! Dentist was really happy with the progress so far, she says my arch is opening up really well. Yay! Wire change, although I think it's the same size again.

Re: Emma in braces

Two weeks in. Not seeing any changes yet, but I can be patient! Still on soft food, and my lower lip is getting cut up when eating so it's soup every other night. As everyone says though, you do get used to it very quickly. I never forget they're thrrr but it's started to feel normal. I can't rememb...

Re: Waterpik and oral surgery

I had a wisdom tooth surgically removed in feb, and had six stitches. As I hadn't read the paperwork I've just been using my Waterpik, didn't think twice about it! No ill effects.

Re: Braces at 39

I lost 11lb in my first week. Yes, 11!! I'm really struggling to eat, it just feels nasty. I'm only on day ten though and I have been improving slowly.

Re: Emma in braces

First latte today, I can't resist any longer!
My sores seem to have calmed down now,apart from by my very last upper bracket on the right. The constant mirror gazing has let up slightly. Impatient to see some changes but nothing yet :cry:

Re: Emma in braces

:lol: I've had the thought about pregnancy too, especially as my estimated time is 9 months! Have finally stopped obsessively checking for movement. I can't see any yet, but my teeth have stopped aching all the time. One random tooth keeps having sensitivity on the odd day, but all ok in general. Th...

Re: Emma in braces

Thanks professor 8) First day at work today since having them fitted, then straight into a meeting where I had to talk lots! I felt a bit self conscious at first but nobody looked at me oddly. First day without wax, too. Although I have just put some on the left middle brackets, really scratchy toda...

Emma in braces

Hi everyone I've posted elsewhere on the board a few times but I've only just really seen this section. It's amazingly inspirational! So I thought I'd jump on board :) I'm 34 and just had braces fitted last week. I'm too :oops: for pictures yet, but maybe one day! I'm still on liquids only as I have...

Re: Braces in Bristol

I'll hold on :D

I got a water flosser too, that feels soooo nice on my gums. Using it 2-3 times a day at the moment. Really glad I'm off work for a few days!

Re: Hi from sunny Somerset!!

[quote="teeebeee"]Hello there, how are you getting on? The left hand side of my mouth has settled down - it's just the right hand side now and I can mostly live with that. If the blasted wax would stay on, I'd be fine! I've probably ingested a few calories from eating that. lol. I, too, was on prote...

Re: Braces in Bristol

Thanks, Prometheus :) Just ahead of me then, aspiromusings! Day four now and I'm not enjoying this much. Losing weight is a bonus, but soup isn't looking too attractive. I had leek and potato soup last night and although it was smooth, the shreds of leek got caught in my brackets almost instantly. H...
