It's interesting. I am feeling better now but last Monday I had a power chain put on and I felt sick to my stomach again all day. I think it's just a weird stress thing...

Re: First week nausea?

I did take ibuprofen a couple of days but I thought that might be what was making me feel sick so I stopped. I am feeling better this week but still have waves of nausea. Maybe it's just stress?

First week nausea?

So has anyone experienced bouts of nausea the first week or so after getting braces? I can't figure out what to attribute it to. At first I thought it was the amount of dairy I was consuming so I cut back. I'm still having it and I wonder if it's something else involving having braces and getting us...

Re: share your soft food meals

Polenta! Last night i had it at a restaurant with olive oil and parmesan. It was so satisfying and easy to eat! I've been eating a lot of mac n cheese too. Braces are a great excuse to indulge! I can't really do high dairy foods that also have sugar because make me nauseous but cheese and pasta actu...

Re: Things learned by me in 9 months of braces

Thank you loridee76 for your post...it's really helpful. I've only had my braces on for 5 days and I'm looking forward to the day when I'm not so obsessed with how they feel on my teeth or anxious when greeting people.

Re: A month in Italy! Red Wine and ligatures...

Thanks Blondecam.I am going to try those. When looking at pictures I can see that once the ligatures are stretched around brackets they don't seem as dark/ bright as they do prior to being put on the teeth...

Re: A month in Italy! Red Wine ans ligatures...

Thanks everyone. I will plan to have a bit of red before my last appointment prior to leaving for Italy - good idea! I have to go in on Monday to have another bracket put on and I think I might try the gray and the light blue ligatures on a couple of my side teeth to get an idea of what they'd look ...

Re: Introduction - Ceramic Braces

Hi! I am new as well and getting my braces on today - I'm pretty nervous. The plan is ceramic on top and damon metal on the bottom. In a way I can't believe I am doing this because I'm already a bit self-concious and an introvert but I'm imagining this will be a growing exeperience!

Ceramic braces on lower teeth - your experience?

Hi. This is my first post. I am 51 and getting my braces put on Tuesday. I have a smaller lower jaw and severe overbite. My Ortho recommends the clarity clear ceramic on the top and metal on the bottom. I'd really like to get the ceramic on the bottom as well but she says the they are more fragile a...
