Re: Switching to metal brackets (anyone done it?)

Oh, people comment on my speech all the time. I hear "what?" so often! I've gotten better with it since September, when I started teaching full time, and therefore needing to speak more clearly, but it has been a struggle! I only ceramic on my first 6, so I can see how big the size difference is, an...

Switching to metal brackets (anyone done it?)

I've had my braces since May of this year, top only so far, and I have ceramic on the first 6, metal on the rest. I absolutely hate my ceramic ones because they're so big and bulky, and I feel like they've made my speech so much worse because I feel like I'm always "tripping" over them. At my last a...

Re: Waterpik or Airflosser?

From what I've read, Waterpik is better than Airflosser.

I have a waterpik (not that brand) and I wouldn't change it for the world. My mouth feels so amazingly clean after using it!

Re: No Wire Change?

I obviously know nothing about your case specifically, but I know that in mine, my ortho said he has to make my overbite worse in order to be able to fix my bite properly at the end.

Re: Brand new to braces at 28

I'm already noticing changes already, and it's crazy.

But my lisp is getting worse and not better, which is extremely annoying...but at least I can eat.

Re: Brand new to braces at 28

Thanks! So this is day 5 and things are still going well. I've eaten real food (chicken nuggets), although that was not an easy task to do at all...and I've taken the wax (well, Mack's silicone earplugs as I was suggested elsewhere) off because I think my mouth is tough enough to handle the wires. A...

Brand new to braces at 28

Hey guys! As the title says - I'm 28, and I this is my first time with braces! I got my braces yesterday morning, and so far so good. I got ceramic on the front 6 top teeth, and metal on the rest (bottoms will go on in a few months), and I love the choice! Yes, the ceramics are larger, but I think i...

I think that I'm going to do color...probably baby blue or light pink.

Re: No pictures were taken?

I had pictures and x-rays taken, and a 3D scan of my mouth (instead of molds)

Re: Metal or Ceramic?

Does anyone have a source with empirical evidence? Because what you guys are saying is exactly where the conflicting views come from since people on both sides will usually argue for their side. I'm sure no one cares (except me of course), but I also know that people would notice - at least I would ...
