Re: Finally doing it! Damon braces for bite issues

My ortho was talking about putting my top teeth in an wide-arch wire so I bet he's going to try to tip them out a bit next. That would create some more room I bet so I hope that means extractions are off the table.

Re: Don't be shy....join in the discussion!

Welcome! Glad to have you. Yeah this place has been a bit quiet lately but there are some regulars. I'm 11 months in myself so I don't have a ton myself but I also want to put my name out there as well in case anyone ever has a question.

Re: Got Braces in College at 21

Agreed. Braces are nothing to worry about. I would try to hide mine but then again I'm a bit of a grump anyway. But still, keep up the good work and if you ever have any questions, comments, or if you want to share updates, don't be a stranger!

Re: Finally doing it! Damon braces for bite issues

Another post so I can get pics of both molars on. They stick out a bit if you can see.

Re: Finally doing it! Damon braces for bite issues

New arch is finally in! Also now have brackets on my first molars on bottom. 10 months in and the orthodontist is feeling pretty good about how things are going. Haven't heard any more if he's going to take teeth out so I'm hopeful that won't be needed now.

Re: The New ArchWired is Live! Check It Out!

Beautifully done! I'll have to take a better look at it later on my desktop but it does work nicely on mobile as well.

Re: Hello! Braces in mid to late fifties

It's a lot quieter than it used to be but it's still somewhat active. I need to pop in more often myself. Welcome and best of luck to you!

Re: The Painnnn - Root Canals?

I know someone who had to have nine root canals after braces but they weren't always diligent about brushing...

I'm just hoping that I can avoid it. I had a root canal about 3 or 4 years ago. I have a high pain tolerance but having to hold my mouth pried open for two hours was no fun.

Re: Finally doing it! Damon braces for bite issues

Another appointment. Not much change; the wire actually popped out of the brackets on my lingual arch bands. They retied those back in with steel wires this time & rebent the wire. Good news: I will be getting my new lingual arch on my second bicuspids next time & brackets on my first molars! More p...

Re: Chin implant

Question and I hope it isn't taken the wrong way. Are there medical reasons for a chin implant or is it for appearance? Like I hinted at, if it's appearance, it's fine but I'm just curious because I've seen several people on here that have had/are getting chin implants.
