Re: Issues right before getting your braces off

i think if it feels abit off it might be the shape of your teeth instead of it being in a bad position - but if you are completely sure that it isn't either of those definitely go have a sit down with your orthodontist if possible and explain your worries about that tooth :) best of luck!

Re: Read this before getting Fastbraces

i have just gotten off my fastbraces off and am extremely bittersweet with the results. i reckon the dentist i had gone with was rather alright compared to some other practices who offered fastbraces, but i wish i went to a orthodontist earlier. My final moral is just please don't get fastbraces if ...

Re: What's it Like??

When they are taking them off, its pretty much pain free as they just use bracket pliers and take them out pretty carefree. Your teeth and gums then will feel really slimy when you have the brackets off - i had inflamed gums after taking them off so my gums felt like they were protruding! they use t...

My teeth previously were quite decently straight - not perfect but pretty straight. My bottom teeth were pretty well aligned but weirdly shaped with my canines quite high. My two fro...
