My teeth haven't been too sore either, but my poor cheeks, ouch! I turned the corner on pain after the first week, but it was a pretty miserable first week.

Re: Braces.. Part Deux

I'm curious as to why there's a bend in the wire between my two front teeth. There's also one at the bottom, but I'm not sure if that's because the bottoms are so effed up they can't get the wire in straight. My lady that put them on also said she went with a stronger wire for my first wire and my ...

Re: Confess your orthodontic sins.

I ate pistachios on the first day, lol. I figured they would be soft enough, but it hurt like heck and that first bite was enough for me to stop!

Re: What are your worst braces symptoms?

Definitely the sores on the inside of my cheeks. Just brutal. The actual teeth soreness hasn't been too bad..

Re: Intro - Braces for the 2nd time and completely miserable.

I'm in the same boat. I got my braces off at ~16, didn't wear my retainers and everything shifted. At 32, they seem WAY worse then I remembered them being the first time. Three days in and my cheeks are raw, so painful to eat. The blue build ups on my top teeth are pretty annoying as well. Hang in t...

Re: Second time around the block

[quote="oldfart"]Bonded retainers aren't the prefect thing for retention all the time. Most do not include the premolars/molars and often just rest behind the lower front teeth which does allow forward movement.[/quote] Yeah, they give you clear retainers as well.

Re: Second time around the block

*Self-ligating brackets. Sorry, I can't edit yet. Also, I kind of regret the "rolly eyes" icon. I'm excited to get everything fixed up again! So, "rolly eyes" at my teenage self, "smiley face" at my decision to get my smile perfect again!

Second time around the block

Well, like many kids, I didn't wear my retainers and now, a few weeks after turning 32, I'm getting braces again. :roll: I went in for a consultation April 21st, with my original orthodontist, and it went well. I got pictures done after the consultation as well as a 360 xray and molds. I'm going wit...
