Re: how many teeth show when you smile?

Wow!! BeautifulDisaster, your smile and teeth look amazing!! :D metalliKa, I also showed none before braces! So much so that even though my teeth were REALLY messed up, people didn't even realize as I NEVER showed them - people still asking why I got braces because I never had skew teeth?!? (In my m...

Re: oh no :( spacers :(

Well i just looked at it this way.... Get through the spacers and then EVERYTHING else is a breeze! It is the worst part of braces, so getting it over and done with in the beginning is great! Use your pain meds! Good luck, all of this is SO worth it!! :)

Re: Bite slanting during treament?

I'm in my 6th month and I've also just noticed that my bite seems slanted towards my left side. I see my ortho next week, so will let you know what the outcome is for me.

Re: biggest advances in your treatment

I have a rogue tooth that came in, in my palate behind my canine tooth (which was also in the wrong position - came in next to my front teeth) - canine tooth has been slowly moving over to its right spot - been 6 months and finally the gap it made was big enough to start movement on bringing that ro...

Re: My braces story - progress as I go along

So today I saw my ortho again and FINALLY after months of making a gap big enough for my rogue tooth to fit into, the gap was deemed big enough!!!!! I was then fitted with a button behind the rogue tooth and a power chain was fitted around the back of the tooth and the teeth on either side - and the...

Re: My braces story - progress as I go along

So its been a while since I have posted an update! I have just been super busy! :) anyways, not much has changed since my last post except that I upgraded to a thicker wire on top... My last rogue tooth still hasn't been able to join the archwire yet as there wasn't enough space for it at my last ap...

Re: 5 weeks in and teeth look way worse! Is this normal?!

Exact same thing happened to me, I thought to myself at the time that things were waaaaay worse and what had I done to myself LOL - for about a month my teeth looked awful while they made space for a few of my teeth to slot into the correct places, but now I couldn't be happier! My teeth are startin...

Re: Best ligatures for ceramic uppers?

I have ceramic braces and have clear ligs every time, for some reason they don't seem to stain (I don't drink coffee though) - I have however eaten curry and eat tomato based foods all the time and they have not gone a funny colour. Maybe try a silver or grey colour or try the clear :) works for me

Re: Braces next week!

Spacers for me were the WORST part of braces so far. I had 4 teeth extracted and have had a few adjustments since having my braces placed and none of that came close to the constant aching pain of the spacers! I was on pain killers for the whole 2 week duration of spacers (even waking at night from ...
