Re: Your jail sentence

Sentence was 18-24 months.

I am currently on month 14.

Fingers crossed that I only have 4 more months to go instead of 10+. :(

Re: The truth about extractions. Share your Good and Bad stories? [with pictures]

I had 5 teeth pulled about a year and a half ago and my braces were put on 3 weeks after that. So far during my treatment I've seen nothing but positive changes. I was definitely worried at first but, I can't say I regret it.

I don't really want to say it's 'impossible' but .. I personally have never done it myself nor have I ever heard of someone doing it with just the force of their tongue!

I suppose anything is possible though :wink:

Re: Dating with Braces

I'm sure he would feel great knowing you will have a big straight smile in the end! Couldn't agree more with this! ^ I myself was always worried about how braces would impact my dating life. I've had them for over a year and they've never held me back. I've had nothing but compliments from people. ...

Re: Consultation

Typically at the initial consultation they will do an examination of your teeth and give you some options to choose from in terms of braces. Whether it be ceramic, regular metal or invisalign if you're a candidate. There are a few different things that could happen that day. In my case, I had no cho...

Re: 'Ello! (Newbie here)

cmatthews26 - Thank you! And yes, it's definitely reassuring to know that other adults get braces, too. :) I've only had my braces (top arch) for a week but I find myself looking at my teeth every day for changes, lol. Didn't expect anything noticeable to happen yet, but still. Looking forward to t...

Re: IMPACTED CANINES CLUB

I had the option to have my impacted canine pulled down with a chain but opted to have it removed instead to save myself an extra 6 or so months on my treatment. My orthodontist plans to 'disguise' my premolar and through cosmetic dentistry, make it look like a canine! I'm okay with this, as long as...
