Getting used to not having braces

Hi :D How long does it take to feel normal after getting braces off? I just got my braces off and I know that it feels a little weird after getting them off but all day I've been licking them and they feel slimy. And wow, they feel so big too! I'm finding it hard to look at myself in the mirror. I l...

Don't worry!

If you Google it you'll find out that this is a sign on a natural resting position. It will reduce wear on your teeth and your tongue will help maintain your upper arch. :D

Re: Help with puffy gums and braces

Thanks for the help so far! I’m beginning to believe that my body is not cooperating and there is little I can do. Has anyone else been in the same boat? The puffiness really sneaks up on you

Re: Scared to get White Spots...

Hi there! I don't believe white spots are anything to worry about. As long as you practice good hygiene and see your dentist often should should be OK. Your dentist should be able to see any spots and will warn you. If you do get spots, its not too bad. There are a few products out there like "Tooth...

Re: Help with puffy gums and braces

[quote=Heidirs post_id=504895 time=1538614578 user_id=29606] Out of curiosity, do you brush under your braces at the gum line?

Most brackets come with hook attached to them already but If you otho does plan to dit your bite, they might place lower braces on.

Re: Help with puffy gums and braces

Help with puffy gums and braces

Hi, I’m new to this forum and I’m still learning the ropes. I have had Damon braces for a little over two years and I believe I’m getting them off soon although I have a few issues. After about a year of having braces, I noticed that I had puffy gums. My Othodonist didn’t really care so I got an opi...
