Re: Ceramic Braces Story @ 28

Been a while since I posted. Things have straightened out a lot but still tweaking some things. I took this in the morning but this afternoon the orthodontist installed powerchains :gavel: Before http://i547.photobucket.com/albums/hh469/istase2000/Capture_1.jpg Now http://i547.photobucket.com/albums...

Re: Ceramic Braces Story @ 28

Hi everyone, it's been a while since my last update as I didn't really didn't feel like there was much progress. I've seen the ortho twice since my last post and have a slightly new triangle configuration of elastics which will bring the bottom jaw back a bit. My top teeth are able to overlap the bo...

Re: 29 - Braces Journey (terrified)

My first 5 days after getting braces was very painful and I couldn't see it getting better! I was drinking soup, smoothies and couldn't even chew salmon because it hurt that much. Suddenly on day 6 it got better and I could chew rice, dumplings and soft things. So you'll get there! :mrgreen:

Re: 2nd premolar sensitivity?

Thanks for your reply guys!
Ortho said this is very normal with braces.
I actually went to get it checked at the dentist and they did an xray and didn't find anything. The pain kind of got better so it was unlikely a crack.

Re: Are my teeth getting worse??

Hi there I haven't had powerchains but am in a similar situation. I didn't really "need" braces but a snaggletooth started to get a bit worse and bothered me. Nobody ever noticed until I pointed it out. I decided to go ahead anyway and it's been over 3 months now. Things have straightened out quite ...

Re: Ceramic Braces Story @ 28

Thanks Atrixa and swisscat. I'm really happy about how straight my teeth are, but my bite is still off - when I bite down it only bites onto the right and the left doesn't really touch. Also, my longer front tooth keeps hitting on the bottom teeth. The good news is, my midline is almost aligned agai...

Re: Double Power Chains

Oh no! My elastics are cutting into the sides of my mouth atm and I can't even use wax :gavel:
I'm the opposite, I hoard my dental wax and always ask for more everytime I visit . I know that it could hurt like hell after an adjustment one day and I can just go crazy with the wax.

Re: Ceramic Braces Story @ 28

Hi everyone! Just had my third adjustment this week and it's just shy of 3 months and they told me my bite has gone a little weird especially on the bottom right (as I suspected). I have now been assigned elastics.. but my teeth are definitely going through a " it will get worse before it gets bette...

2nd premolar sensitivity?

Hi Guys, Another question here from a braces newbie! So when I first got my braces, it was pretty painful and I couldn't eat any solids pretty much for a week. There was also a sharp pain on the top right second premolar for a few days but that stopped fairly quickly. Now I've had 2 adjustments, the...
