Re: What's your favourite elastic colours?

Oh gosh, I just realized you said elastics & I'm talking about ligatures. Am I the only one on the wrong page here. Lolol. :lol: Sorry. Eesh. Oh no, it was my bad actually! Like i said, I hadn't had my braces for that long. So I was actually talking about ligatures, not elastics. Didn't know there ...

Sixth Appointment

Hi all! I forgot to log in my last appointment which was 6 weeks ago from today. Oops. :D So during my fifth appointment, nothing much happened. Same old, same old. The wire was the same size because I wasn't ready for stronger wires yet. The individual ligatures changed back to the criss-cross ones...

Re: Fourth appointment

One thing that I did notice that was different was the way they put on my bands. During my other adjustments, they would criss-cross (like a figure-8) my bands over the brackets, but this time my orthodontist put it around the bracket instead. Don't know what difference it makes, or what it is supp...

The day after my appointment

The night when I got back from my appointment, my lower teeth started to hurt. I woke up this morning to find that the small gap between my lower left central incisor and the lateral incisor finally closed up! There was no pain on my upper teeth however. My bottom teeth is still a bit sensitive when...

Fourth appointment

So I just came back from my appointment, and not much has changed. I don't know if my wire was changed to a thicker wire or remained the same. For my bands, I chose light blue. My lower central incisors and lateral incisors feel tender, but that's about all there is. I can still eat foods the same. ...

Re: Dating with Braces

I think that braces is a small aspect in comparison to you as a whole. Not to mention, you're only going to have your braces for only 6 months! I was also afraid that my boyfriend would think of me differently or that he wouldn't like it, but there's nothing to fear. :) Like what the other comments ...

Re: What do you for pain?

For me, anything cold usually helps :) Sometimes I massage my gums, and I take pain killers.

What's your favourite elastic colours?

I like to experiment with different coloured elastics, and so I've been wondering what elastic colour is your favourite? I haven't gotten my braces that long ago, so I'm still deciding what colour I like! Also, my next adjustment is in a few days, and I'd like to know which colour looks the most sub...

Re: First week with braces

May 5, 2017 - May 11, 2017. Last night, my teeth started to hurt. It's the day after now, and I can hardly chew on anything. I feel like I want to rip out my braces, but that wouldn't be practical. I feel like I don't have any top teeth in my mouth. So weird and sore! Luckily, I see that my teeth a...

Re: My Braces Journey!

June 29, 2017 For my third -but first tightening- appointment, it was very fast. I changed my ligatures to the lightest purple colour they had, but on my teeth they looked like a medium shade of purple. The orthodontist assistant had to keep redoing the elastics, which was somewhat annoying and pain...

Two weeks after my first appointment

May 18, 2017 This was my second appointment two weeks after my first. But this time, I was getting my lower braces put on. Unfortunately, I had a cavity on my first molar on the bottom right, so they did not place the final bracket there. The procedure was similar to my first appointment. Like the f...

My Braces Journey!

I got my upper braces on May 4, 2017. Although I know I'm a little late to document my journey progression, but it's better to start sooner rather than later! So here I am! :D I decided to get braces to fix several problems with my teeth. One of which was that I had a severe overjet and overbite. My...
