Re: Swollen gums !!

I've had this issue both times with braces. Gingimed rinse didn't work, salt water rinses didn't work...I use anti-gingivitis mouthwash, it helps a little. My former dentist said my swollen gums were caused by the pressure from the braces, nothing due to poor oral hygiene. My gums only shrink a lit...

Re: Whats your story?

The reason I got mine is because I always had a gap between my 2 upper front teeth since I was young. As a kid I didn't really pay attention to it but when I got older I started to dislike it more and more. This resulted in me eventually becoming quite self-conscious which in turn resulted in me al...

Re: Whats your story?

I have a huge overbite and crowding on the bottom due to thumbsucking. My parents could never afford braces when I was younger. As a young adult, although I wanted that "perfect smile", my husband and I used our money for fertility treatments instead. Treatments didn't work so we started saving up ...

Re: Whats your story?

I have a bad overbite and crooked teeth. Because my teeth are so crowded on the upper arch, I got two cavities between them, even though I brushed them regularly. I started flossing too, but it was too late. Also I have TMJ (my jaw pops whenever i open my mouth) and I am sorta hoping that as soon a...

Re: Whats your story?

Mines short, basically I was supposed to get braces at 13 for a small overbite, it didn't happen due to lack of money, then I lost my front tooth, my wisdom teeth caused everything to shift, and after I got my wisdom teeth removed I lost a molar because it had a filling the fell out, they wanted me...

Re: Braces Journey

You should definitely mention that to your ortho ! Its all about communicaton. When i had my consultation they mentioned i get the expander, and i asked why it was necessary. To me, your smile doesnt seem narrow, but then again im no expert ! Lol.

Re: LAC USC Hospital

I think at LAC they are great. Ask around though ? Other patients ? Or even workers should help, since you couldnt find anything online
