Re: Retainers?!

You should call up the orthodontic office to check, but it's usually around full time for the first 6 months and then nightly for the rest of your life

Re: Little help please *

Hey I just wanted to let you know that I like reading your updates and keeping up with how you're doing, and I probably missed this part but how old are you? And I'm so sorry about how expensive braces are, that sounds awful. Here I was complaining about having to pay for oral surgery anesthesia a c...

Re: Impacted canine surgery.... Now what?

That's interesting, in most cases the braces are put on first and the gold chain is attached to the impacted tooth during the exposure surgery and then that chain is attached to the arch wire. I also haven't heard of bite plates being given for exposures before, did your follow-up occur yet? I'm cur...

My roots were going through resorption a few months back when my canine got ankylosed so I got a subluxation surger...

Re: The never ending story of Clo's braces

This story is fascinating, I'm also so terribly sorry about everything you've been through. I even made an account just so I could finish reading your experience, and I'm not sure if you're still active but I was wondering if anything had changed from the last time you posted?
