I can't speak with tongue crib

Hi, everyone! So my ortho has new plans for my teeth because she found out I don't know how to swallow properly, which is why I'm now stuck wearing a tongue crib for the next 3 months. Fortunately it's removable and I can take it off at work (I'm a teacher), because I can't speak clearly and I make ...

Re: New member with adult braces

Hi! I feel like I could have written this post, though I've neither been to the US or the Philippines :lol: After a dentist messed up my teeth when I was a teenager, I also find trusting my dentist a bit difficult. I'm getting new braces in August and hoping it goes well this second time. About the ...

Re: Getting anxious - How long will I have to wear them?

I wore them all day for the first year after I finished my treatment 16 years ago and then every night until now. I have some other issues I need to fix on this second round of braces, but fortunately none my teeth are misaligned. My sister wears hers a few times a week and she says they get pretty ...

Re: Eating is a pain in the behind!

I feel like this is going to happen to me when I get braces on in August. I have tmj so some days my jaw hurts when I eat, and I guess it'll be even worse when I get them on at least at the beginning. It should get better.

Re: Permanent Retainer is a PAIN! :(

I hate the thought of having to wear permanent retainers again after I get my braces off. I had them from age 16 to 25 on my lower front teeth and they only gave me trouble. I couldn't floss properly, so I ended up with gingivitis on my lower gum. Then I didn't notice that I accidentally broke a pie...

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

I had them before when I was a teenager, but I've never been happy with the results so I'm getting them again now at 32. I want my perfect smile!

Re: Why did I do this again!? Re-fixing my stubborn teeth :/

Glad you're feeling more optimistic now. We'll all have days when we think why am I doing this to myself, but it'll be worth it in the end :D

Re: Getting braces again

[quote="HummerMan3"]Hi blackwidow, Good luck as you start your treatment. Do you have a date picked out for getting your braces on? I don't have an overjet, but do have an open bite secondary to tongue thrust. My treatment starts in 4 weeks, and I'll have some metal "cleats" bonded to the back of my...

Getting braces again

Hi everyone! I decided to join because I'm finally going to fix my smile for good this time. I wore braces when I was 13 for 2 years. All I remember is pain and not getting the results I wanted, but since I was only a kid no one listened to me :roll: I'm 32 years old now and I think it's time. I've ...
