Re: Dating with Braces

If he's "the one" he won't care, and will big you up for doing it! If he's the sort of person to give you a hard time, and not support you, then better knowing it now!

Re: Bite turbos

You'll get used to them pretty quick. I had them put on day 1 - two weeks ago.

Day 1-3 were absolute hell, but now i'm fine with them. Never really bother me now

Hope my next 8 months whizzes by like yours did. I don't mind the braces or the pain at all, but I HATE these damn bite turbos. Scraping my tongue on them all the time,and had to wedge toilet paper in my mouth to sleep last night (didn't feel right unless they felt "closed"

Day 1 - Two brackets down already!

So after finally getting my braces on today, I've only gone and bitten off two brackets! I swear those bite turbos are going to annoy me to death. Thankfully though, the two that came off were not actually wired up yet. They were planned for later on, whilst some of the crowding was dealt with first...

Re: Ceramic Braces Story @ 28

That's really impressive how invisible they actually look. I'm getting own ceramics on tomorrow (at 28 too!) so hope to see them looking as good as yours do!

Re: Your jail sentence

12-18 months quoted by the dentist. Seems really short for some reason compared to other people on here, especially as some have less movement then me! But it's Damon, and they are supposed to be quicker :S

Just as long as they are good for the wedding in 2019!

Re: Cost of your braces

28 years old in the UK - Damon Clear go on tomorrow. Costing £3650 with a 10% discount (so about £3250) for signing up to the dentists plan (2x Normal visits and 2x hygienist, emergency treatment etc.) at £14.99/month. Basically that's free for two years with the braces cost :D
