12 month update

Hard to believe it's been a year and some great progress. Been in power chains top and bottom with elastics for awhile now. Ortho says we're still working on the overbite.

Thanks :) I was told 18-24 months and this summer will be a year. Closer to 18 months would be great.

Almost 9 months

I had a adjustment Friday in which I kept the same wires and have top and bottom powerchains, I was also given elastics to work on my overbite. I'm excited to see the progress they will make but oh my they sure are painful. It isn't as bad today but it's still pretty uncomfortable, tight, a mouth fu...

8 month update

Hard to believe but it's been 8 months in braces. I am happy so far with the process so far and my Orthodontist told me at my adjustment last week I was making good progress. I have had a lot of IPR done on my front crowns that I had done right before braces. He has been fixing the size and shape an...

Re: 28 year old fast braces

I am free of the evil power chains. I think mainly because my dentist realised the mistake of pushing my teeth back when one of my naughty teeth is still being a twat. Come on naughty teeth get in gear. She actually broke the bracket off my naughty tooth while trying to tie is a different way. The ...

Re: My Braces journey

So I had my 2nd adjustment today. I had another reverse curve placed on the bottom and top/power chains. It's definitely sore now. I wasn't really expecting the top to be sore since I didn't get a new wire, guess I underestimated those power chains. The ortho said the overbite is getting better alr...

Re: My Braces journey

I had my fourth adjustment Friday. He says he is still trying to open my bite up. He put bends in the bottom wire. Top stayed the same and power chains top and bottom. Even though no wire change they felt tight and sore from the power chains. I seem to get headaches and my jaw and cheeks kinda throb...

Re: Braces Journey at age 27!!

Yeah I am the same. I look forward to the adjustments even though they have been painful afterwards. If their is discomfort then I know something is going on! I'm pretty early in treatment. I've had the top braces for about 9 weeks and the bottoms about 5 so only a couple months in. The end seems s...
