Re: Newbie question - why is it hard to eat?

Don't let this hold you back from getting braces. My teeth were so sore for the first 5 days after getting braces on but I just had plenty of soups and ice cream (there is quite a lot of high calorie liquid food if you are worried about losing weight). but it is so satisfying seeing the first change...

Re: Tooth Dreams

I've had the falling out teeth ones a lot of times. Now that I'm in braces I've had a few whee the brackets have fallen off. Just normal worries rising to the surface in my dreams I guess.

Re: can you brush your teeth too much?

I think I brushed too much at the start and I'm worried that I caused a bit of enamel erosion. I was just so paranoid of ending up with cavities after brace removal.

Re: Confess your orthodontic sins.

Very entertaining topic! I thought I'd lose so much weight from cutting out snacking when I got my braces but no, I have managed to continue eating just about anything. Flossing is such a pain that I skip it as my treat if I'm feeling tired. I think I brushed my teeth too much at the start and seem ...
