Re: How long post SARPE did you get your TOP BRACES on?

Sorry for digging up this "old" post, but it's fascinating to see all the different approach by your orthos! I'll be getting self-ligating brackets on my top 6 front teeth next month (white or metal, still not sure), 2 months after SARPE. My ortho said we need to wait for the bones to be completely ...

Re: Adults With metal braces - are you happy with your choice?

I got metal for the bottom teeth 2 months ago and after Sarpe, my ortho told me that next month, she'll be able to put brackets on my 6 front teeth to start closing the spaces. She asked me if I wanted white brackets for these 6 teeth, it seem liked a really casual question, no mention of price diff...

Re: RPE discoloration?

Turns out you were right Jaime! I saw my ortho this morning and the mouthwash they gave me at the hospital is known to stain teeth. They'll clean the stains at my next appointment in a month :)

RPE discoloration?

Hi everyone!
I've had my RPE in place for over a month (I'm almost 4 weeks post-SARPE surgery), and I'm starting to notice brown-ish stains on my bottom teeth that are in contact with my RPE. Sometimes my tongue get's that dark yellow/brown coloration as well. Anyone else also had that problem?

Re: What medical problems does your bite typically cause you?

I have Class 2 overbite and when I first consulted with my ortho for treatment she told me about the different options and surgery, etc etc etc because apparently since I've only been using my molars to chew food my whole life (I'm 30 years old and my top and bottom front teeth, still have the wavy ...

Re: Stereotypical Responses to Dental Problems

I never got the "not taking care of your teeth properly" comments, but ever since I got braces (and now a SARPE surgery with a BSSO down the line) and explained why I made the decision to the people who asked I mostly get "But you're already so pretty!"... I mean seriously? I'd rather still have my ...

Operation went great, they did 10 turns during surgery and only had to do 5 more every other day The swellin...

Re: Poll: At What Age Did You Get Your Braces?

Glad to see I'm not that much of a late bloomer!

I made the decision to get braces as a present to myself on my 30th birthday :)
