Re: I miss food!

Re: Is it normal for teeth not to touch now?

Thanks for the answer! I hope it improves soon for both of us! It's driving me insane too! And I'm trying to figure out how to chew again. LOL :gavel: :gavel:

Is it normal for teeth not to touch now?

I had braces a week ago and since then my teeth have already shifted and they simply don't touch in all places, making it really difficult to chew anything. If I close my bite, then the right teeth don't touch and if I try to get the right side to touch, my jaw pops. Does it really happen this fast?...

Re: Why are my gums bleeding when I am wearing braces?

I was braced Monday and my gums are just raw. I hate it. I sympathize with you!

Re: Which electric toothbrush do you have and why did you choose it?

I have a jetpic. I got it because it also has the water attachment and I'm hoping it will allow me to clean my braces better...we'll see....

Re: What did your ortho "give" you?

I got a t-shirt. Lots of little Christmas tree brushes. Floss threaders. Lip balm. A toothbrush. A "stop eating this now" list. Some mouthwash in case my mouth gets sore. Some dental wax. And a "good brushing" punch card. :dance:

Re: How often do you have your teeth Cleaned?

My ortho said every 6 months but I think I'm going to go more often. I'm super paranoid about my teeth.

Re: What colour bands draw the least attention to braces

I just got mine today. I opted to violet ones but they had silver colored ones that would prob match up really well.

It's official! They're on!

Got my top braces on this afternoon!! I've been waiting since I was 14 year old for this. (I'm 40 now). The bottom ones will go on in 3-4 months.

So far, they feel REALLY weird. And I made a terrible mess trying to figure out the wax....other than that...so far, so good. Wahoo!!

Re: Monday is the big day

I'm about to leave now for the ortho! I admit, now I'm anxious about it. But have been looking forward to getting my teeth straight!
