I, too, had a lower incisor taken out. I didn't anticipate that the space would be so big. When will you get your braces?
It went on yesterday - how long did it take to close your gap?

Re: Please tell me extractions aren't that bad

Well the extraction was done, although it started bleeding when I walked to the car, and again when I ate something this afternoon (actually I was having a smoothie but it was quite thick so I think that caused the issue). Am being super careful, it isn't sore but don't want to trigger the bleeding...

Re: My journey from a hot mess to a happy smile

I've been swamped at work so I haven't had a chance to update x_x. I went for my first official tightening on the 7'th of October - they upgraded my top wire and finally linked my canine to the arch wire. I was told that at my next apt. they would add open coils to make space for my incisors. So Fr...

Re: My journey from a hot mess to a happy smile

Let us know how everything goes :) I went in on Friday - 3 weeks as instructed - and all I got was my bottom elastics changed. I'm so glad they didn't do anything to my top because last week was kind of hell with each tooth taking a turn to remind me that this isn't going to be an easy treatment :x...

Re: My journey from a hot mess to a happy smile

My treatment is going well. I'm glad the numbing gel and Vaseline is working for you. My lips are so dry. I am getting nervous because I have to have a front tooth taken out. This canine can't move because the other tooth is blocking it. I'm freaking out. I can tell that my bite is changing on the r...

Re: My journey from a hot mess to a happy smile

I'm glad to hear things are going well for you. My lips were sore for the first week, and I am eating my solid food again. I forgot to post my pics Thats great @Sunnygirl807.

Re: 36 and braces

I have that same high canine. Does your lip sticks to that bracket? Also, does your lip protrudes from the ceramics? I start on Tuesday and I'm trying to decide if I want ceramics or not. Thanks in advance.

Re: Hi all, new here and getting my braces soon

I am getting braces on next Tuesday. I have always been self conscious about my smile. But for one reason or another, I kept putting it off. I am 36 years young :mrgreen: I was looking over some pictures of me and I was not smiling in any of them. It is finally time to change that. I'm so glad I fou...
