Re: So it begins...pendulum + braces

Good news everyone!

Now, what colours do I choose...

Re: So it begins...pendulum + braces

Four full months! My tongue has started healing, which is amazing. Now, the only worry I have is that my front 6 teeth feel a bit tender and I honestly think they've moved a bit towards being more scrambled. This thingie pushes the molars backwards but also a residual force pushes the other teeth so...

Re: So it begins...pendulum + braces

15 weeks progress pic! The gap is actually bigger than it shows here, because the photo is angled. Excuse it's grossness, but..it is what it is :) The bar has moved quite a bit, I can't catch the curved wires in a photo anymore. Also, is it just me, or my saber tooth is even more crooked now? I defi...

Re: So it begins...pendulum + braces

Today I have a pendulumversary, exactly three months since it was activated :) With luck, I only have three months more, although I know that luck is rare in orthodontics :) This stage of the treatment is rather uneventful but I continue to get excited for the small stuff because of my impatience :)...

Re: Carriere Motion and Braces as an Adult

Congrats on making the decision :) It was similar with me, nobody thought I needed braces and it took me so much time to figure that *I* wanted them :) What's the Carriere Motion supposed to do? I thought I'd researched all appliances there are (out of curiosity, cause I depleted the resources on my...

Re: So it begins...pendulum + braces

22at26, sounds cool, my ortho told me the same things about Damon. I had my appointment this week and things are going well. The distance is now more than 2mm and we have around 4 more to go. Interesting to think there will be a big hole there at the end of this treatment. A whole tooth worth of hol...

Re: So it begins...pendulum + braces

Ok, two full months since the pendulum was activated. It was installed 21st april, but was not activated until 5th may. I'm officially 1/3 in. I have around 2mm distance on one side, maybe even more, but a lot less on the other side. I wonder if that will slow down the treatment. Also, the ortho tol...

Re: 28 years old and in Damon Braces - see my progress!

It's really cool going through this thread, congrats, the braces have done an amazing job! How do you feel about the facial changes, you have mentioned earlier (a lot earlier, page one :)) you have some concerns about them. But it looks like they've all been for the better, your profile looks great,...

Re: First time braces at 33

Vega, congrats on all your progress, I really enjoyed reading your story! I have 1 canine that protrudes (like a vampire) pushing the teeth next it to the back and the 2 front teeth are overlapping. I have an overbite of 1.2 cm. You can also see in profile that my lower jaw is to far back, I look li...

Wohoo I can see! The brackets look pretty cool and I'm loving the wire :D Hope the pain and lip irritation have subsided a bit.

Re: So it begins...pendulum + braces

I have given zero explanation of what a pendulum is and why I even have it installed. *facepalm*. I have crowded upper teeth and an overbite and not enough space to line the teeth up. Two ways to open up space wee suggested, via extractions or by pushing the molars back using this appliance called p...
