Re: First time - braces at 32

Ortho appointment today to get the second spacer placed. Also got the ligatures switched out as they had been looking yellow for two weeks, not a pretty sight. I've stayed away from curry and red wine, but I can't say no to coffee (or a few cigarettes when I go out :| ) Also when I tried lipstick on...

Re: Social Anxiety...

Hey clarissanoel, I empathize, I have social anxiety too and I was extremely nervous about getting braces. And I still am self-conscious 1 month in. What Speck said helps: be the first to joke about them, that always defuses any awkwardness. I didn't want to have the same conversation with friends &...

Re: First time - braces at 32

Hey Jem, thanks!

I'm still debating, but leaning towards getting braces on the bottom as well. It would take longer and involve elastics, but at least then my teeth will be completely fixed and I won't have to wear a retainer at night.

I'm going to ask the ortho for more info soon...

Re: First time - braces at 32

Haha, funny GIF! I tend to agree that braces look kinda yucky and they're a food-trap. So far, I haven't made any dietary changes but eating takes a bit longer. For me, making the change from Invisalign to braces has resulted in a less-complicated day-to-day management condition and a corresponding...

Quoting

How come I see quotes as plain text with code? Is this because I am a new member?

Re: Poll: At What Age Did You Get Your Braces?

32 here, just got them.
Should have gotten them as a kid, but my mom (and dentist!) didn't think it was medically necessary.

Re: First time - braces at 32

Bedankt! :) Voorlopig gebruik ik wax op de schroefjes aan mijn kiezen, verder eigenlijk totaal geen last. Ook niet bij het slapen, dus da's alvast positief. Vandaag voel ik een beetje druk op m'n voortanden, maar valt echt goed mee. Vanavond wel een mondeling examen, beetje nerveus... Ik heb jouw ve...

Re: Elastics in bite correction

Does anyone here feel like their face shape has changed due to wearing elastics?

I'm not at the elastics stage yet, but I wonder if this is a factor at all.
