Re: Getting braces in two weeks- very nervous

Hi there! I am 19, almost 20, years old and got braces about 9 1/2 months ago! I also had to get extractions. I was so scared too about my face looking different but I am fine and still look the same. I actually got braces when I was 12 without getting extractions and because my mouth was so overcro...

Re: Cycling & endurance sports fuel

Maybe you could ask your orthodontist for some advice next time you visit? It might just be fine if you take them out for a bit. As long as you make sure to wear them every other day you're supposed to then it might be fine. Definitely ask your ortho though! Good luck :)

Re: Finally fixing my hideous teeth...

Congrats on having such great progress! I love looking back on my progress pictures. I feel much more confident now even with braces on than I did before with bad teeth! Good luck with the rest of your treatment!

My teeth are becoming VERY small on one side- you can hardly even see them anymore. This is resulting in my smile looking lopsided since my teeth are much bigger on one side. The issue is with the lateral incisor and the canine. I don't know if that have be intruded too much or what but I hope it ca...

Re: Feel too old for this

Don't worry about others! At least you are being proactive about the problem and are fixing it! I think people will realize that too. My boyfriends dad just got his braces off and said how much better he feels now than before. I'm 19 with braces now and thought it would be the end of the world going...
