Retainers!

I've now had my top braces off for over a month and have been loving it! I've been meaning to put together a post-removal update for a while. Retainers: They're not that bad you guys! I had an essix retainer fitted right after I got my braces off, then because I was away I had a permanent retainer o...

Tops are off!

I got my top braces off last weds. Here they are! I still can't believe they are my teeth. As soon as I got home from the ortho I actually started giggling uncontrollably while looking in the mirror as I was so delighted realising that this will be what my smile looks like from now on (with retainer...

The end is hopefully in sight (kind of)

I went to my appointment yesterday and will be getting my top braces of next Wednesday! Yes! :D :D My bottom teeth are continuing to be stubborn, though my janky tooth is looking a bit better. My ortho said he'll definitely remove the tops and check the bottoms, which could possibly be taken off and...

Re: 25 with Suresmile braces: progress so far (with pics!)

Hi, sorry to hear things haven't been going to plan. With your next appointment so close it's probably worth waiting but I'm sure it must be frustrating to see progress and then feel it slipping away. I have had a similar issue with front lower teeth taking an age to get into the right position but...

At my wits' end

After all the excitement about hopefully getting my braces off on July 8, and feeling pleased that my stubborn tooth was - finally - getting into place, things have taken a turn for the worse. Over the past few days the tooth has started going in a different direction and is getting further and furt...

Getting nervous!

I said I wouldn't get my hopes up about my removal date, but I'm getting very nervous/excited about my appointment in two weeks when I find out if I am in fact getting them off on July 8...Keep obsessively examining at that *one tooth* to see if its in place and reading everyone's removal stories an...

Re: Starting with damon braces soon - overbite & crowding fix

It sounds as if you're incredibly prepared and well-informed about braces already which definitely makes things easier :) I wasn't even aware of Acceledent when I started my treatment - would've definitely gone for it if I had as everything I've heard on here seems to be really positive.

Re: 25 with Suresmile braces: progress so far (with pics!)

Thanks! I'm very happy with how they're looking, so much so that I can quite believe they're really 'mine'. Maybe I'll feel like it's real when they're off though! Yes the gaps between the front and side teeth were quite suprising - it's amazing how braces work. I'll never not be fascinated with the...

Removal date!

I went to my appointment on Monday and was given what will hopefully be a removal date! I have an appointment to go back in 3 weeks, and a removal appointment scheduled the week after if my teeth look good and I'm given the go ahead. My 'problem tooth' has moved quite a bit but is still not quite pe...

Progress with standard wire

The standard wire has been on my bottom row for nearly three weeks now and I think it's actually working!! Here is a comparison pic showing the progress in the last few weeks: Progress.jpg Still trying to figure out whether my ortho just didn't really know what he was doing with the Suresmile wire, ...

Re: Have consult tomorrow. Nervous! what q's to ask

These are great questions! You sound like you're very well prepared.

For me making the first appointment for a consultation was definitely the first hurdle, and things got easier from there. Best of luck, sounds like you're off to a great start :)

Re: 25 with Suresmile braces: progress so far (with pics!)

Ok, it's now a few hours later and my teeth are very sore - a lot more than they've been for a long time. Hopefully this means progress!!! :jump:
