Re: First time - braces at 32

Update December 1st
=almost a year in (top) braces!

Now the whole top is in powerchains. The ottom looks a bit more straight, but also discoloured because of the amount of glue the assistent put on there...
Still frustrated with bite turbos, I'll have to endure them a few more months.

Re: First time - braces at 32

(Sept 3rd, pt2)

As you can see, two bits of ceramic have come off, and it's my own fault. Tried to replace the ligs at home, which worked great the first 4 times, but failed the 5th. Not touching those things anymore now...

Re: First time - braces at 32

Damn these pictures are large :) Would be nice if they could be scaled more on here, and if more than three could be posted at the same time... Or am I missing something? Anyway, these pictures were taken yesterday, after the placement of my bottom row braces (rhodium coated metal, supposedly slighl...

(End of August pt3)

I've added a picture of my closed mouth, as I'm a bit worried the shape of my face might change. More on that later...

Re: First time - braces at 32

So... By August the twisted premolar was almost straightened out, with the help of a powerchain and a bracket on the inside of the tooth. My upper arch also looked good, more aligned, although much wider. I guess some artificial overbite was created to straighten the upper row out. By then it was st...

Re: First time - braces at 32

I haven't posted in a while, time for some catch-up! These pictures were from April this year, this time with tooth-coloured ligs, which I find slightly less prone to discoloration than the clear ones. By this time, I'd sort of decided I was just going to get the top row fixed, and not bother with m...

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...
