My TMJ is back after braces treatment :(

Hello! I got my braces taken off about 4 months ago. Never made a post here because I'm not particularly happy with the result. However, before I got braces I had severe TMJ problems. To the point where I had to be conscious about opening my mouth the "right" way so it wouldn't lock. While in braces...

Re: I bite down on my retainer :(

Thanks jem. I think I'm one of the cases who can't wear a bonded, I have a deep bite. I wonder why the assistent thought it would work in the first place. I will give them a call.

I bite down on my retainer :(

Hi! Got my braces off 1,5 weeks ago. When the ortho assistant checked the placement on my bonded retainer it was all fine, but after it was glued in place my lower teeth hits the top retainer, making it feel as my molars don't touch when I chew. She tried grinding the glue down as much as possible a...

Re: Getting my braces off! Mental preparations?

Oh I totally found flaws in my teeth post debracing. My top arch has a slight cant to the left and my midline isn’t in the middle. My top lateral incisors aren’t as rounded into the arch as they could be. But I didn’t really care about any of that. They were minor flaws that probably nobody would n...

Getting my braces off! Mental preparations?

Hi! I had my mold appointment today before getting my braces off next Tuesday, except my ortho assistant offered me to get it done this Friday instead. I'm so happy! Also - I'm so nervous. I'm preparing myself for that they will not be super perfect, because I have a feeling I will be overwhelmed wh...

Re: Next appointment is to make impressions...

My dentist surprised me today by suggesting that I come in this Friday to get the braces off instead of next Tuesday! I couldn't believe it.
"This Friday? THIS coming Friday? To get them off? Friday instead of Tuesday? THIS FRIDAY??!"

Re: Next appointment is to make impressions...

Fingers crossed that things stabilises for you! I had my debrace schedule pushed back for a couple of months because I was not happy with how my molars are lining or rather not lining up. When my ortho made the necessary adjustments, other teeth that were straight become misaligned again within 24 ...

Re: Next appointment is to make impressions...

Still in braces, lol. A gap (that appeared once, got fixed, and reappeared) and an inwards tilting front tooth got in the way of my liberation.

Fingers crossed everything stays in place now until my next mold appointment, March 19. I also got the de-bracing date set, March 26. May time fly!

Re: Men with Braces

Just a wild guess, but it's scientifically proven that women smile and laugh more than men, which would actually make women show their teeth more, and therefore wanting them to look good, and to feel more confident in social situations.

Re: And just like that, I have a debracing date!

Everything going as scheduled for you? I had my molds appointment yesterday but it turns out my ortho wants to correct one small detail that was bugging me, so I'm in braces for another almost 2 months. I'm so sad. :( That’s frustrating! Hopefully by the end of the 2 months you’ll be braces free! A...

Yeees, congratulations! I'll get impressions made Jan 31 and debracing will be hopefully like a week after so perhaps we'll get the same date. :)
