Re: IMPACTED CANINES CLUB

I’ve officially passed my original end of treatment date and still have a handful of months to go (hop...

Re: IMPACTED CANINES CLUB

Update: My orthodontist removed the button that was placed at my last appointment 8 weeks ago (talk about YEOWCH...he said they usually pop right off, but mine must have been glued extra good because there was a fair amount of prying involved) and replaced it with a bracket! He also removed the arch...

Re: IMPACTED CANINES CLUB

HOORAY Nikki! The canine being visible really helps to feel like there’s FINALLY a light at the end of the tunnel. My orthodontist added a button to the exposed bit of canine at my visit this week and put some more pretty serious pressure on it, still with clear elastic cording. The last couple of v...

Re: IMPACTED CANINES CLUB

Went to my orthodontist this week (6.5 weeks post op) and he officially activated my impacted canine with an attachment that looks like a spring. The bottom of the canine is just slightly visible in the roof of my mouth and my orthodontist is confident it’ll be out by my next appointment in 8 weeks,...

Re: IMPACTED CANINES CLUB

Update: Surgery was a breeze; IV sedation is definitely the way to go, just like taking a little nap. Gums/lips were numb for the rest of the day from the local anesthesia but returned to normal the next day. My surgeon prescribed Tylenol 3 for pain but it was very manageable with regular extra stre...

I’ve been in braces for about a year and a half and am having surgery Thursday. Fing...
