Re: 8 molar bands and 4 eyelets?

I have 8 molar bands. My ortho doesn't like using them, but my maxillofacial surgeon requested them. I felt sorry for the assistant who had to place them. She missed almost all of her lunch break because the bands took quite a long time to place. My surgeon prefers that molar bands be placed on the...

8 molar bands and 4 eyelets?

I currently have 8 molar bands installed. Has anyone else had this many before? Also my Ortho said she will install 4 eyelets ( I think that's what they were called) does anyone have any experience on those? I get nervous at the orthodontist office and forget to ask more questions sometimes :(

Re: Bite turbos

Same as the the other person said, they are absolutely horrible and pure torture at first but then you get used to them. You just have to adapt to a new way of eating. I've had them on for two weeks! :D

Re: Molar bands

I just had molar bands installed last week! In my experience It hurts when it was installed and you might feel pressure for a few hours after but then the pressure subsides. I have silver fillings on my back molars so I had to have the molar bands since a bracket would have trouble sticking. The onl...

I went back to my ortho yesterday and told him how I felt and he shaved down the molar buildups and it feels a bit better. But you're right, I'm sure I'll get used to them with time!

Braces are making me miserable :(

I just got ceramic braces about 4 days ago and I absolutely HATE them. They makes my mouth look like I have a puffy monkey mouth when I try to close my mouth. The ortho put in molar buildips so my top teeth won't knock off the bottom brackets and I can't close my lips without looking wonky. It looks...
