Maybe some pain relief. And I’d get a toothbrush just in case.

Re: New member!!

I got mine just shy of my 31st birthday. I’m almost done with my treatment thankfully. They haven’t been too bad, just something I wanted finished sooner rather than later.

Re: Dental Assistant Skill

My orthodontist does all the wire and ligature changes for me. The assistants really only help set up with new wires and whatever colour ligatures I want.

Re: Confess your orthodontic sins.

I don’t brush after lunch, I don’t floss, I use my teeth to open water bottles, I eat the forbidden foods, I chew pen lids. I’m definitely going to braces hell.

Re: Whats your story?

My story is I wanted my teeth straight. Everyone told me they weren’t too bad (including the orthodontist). Once I had my brackets on, the orthodontist noticed they weren’t as straight as what they appeared.

Re: Cost of your braces

I'm in Australia and mine were $5450. It was $1850 up from and then $200/month thereafter. One month I put in $1000 so they were paid off quicker. My health insurance covered $3000 of them.

Re: gap created to straighten front teeth?

I had a gap in my front teeth at one stage that my orthodontist has since closed up. Not sure if it was done purposely or not but it did make a difference to them.
