It's been a very long time since I have been on here and posted but after nearly a 17 month sentance my braces are coming off tomorrow. Excited and nervous. Overall I have had no troubles with my braces, just a bit of tenderness for a few days after each adjustment. So all in all it's been worth it....

GO THE CLEAR!! I got clear uppers and i am so impressed with them. The first few days when you get your clear ligs on (the little elastic ties that keep the wires inplace) I worried about staining them but after a few days of eating stain resistant foods they still get just slightly discoloured and...

I have just had my second adjustment. I had a thicker wire and a power chain put on my bottom. Its been about 2 hours since he put them on and I already feel the pressure. i instantly felt the tightness of the thicker wire when we fed it through before he even tied it in. Now Im starting to get a bi...

Hello, I found my spacers themselves didnt actually hurt in normal day to day life but they certainly were quite tender to eat with and I found the tenderness got worse as the days went on. I only had my spacers in for 5 days, but if you are having yours in for two weeks they may very well open enou...

Ok I thought I might give a few updated pics. I had my first adjustment today and it was a non event, all the ortho did was change my ligs (put a wire tie on one apparently to make it happen a bit faster?) and put a few bends in my bottom wire to make them line up a bit more in preparation for a hea...

I cant see your pics. I would really love to see it as I want to see what the wire ties look like compared to ligs as my ortho has offered to put wire ties on at my first adjustment to avoid staining issues, so I want to see what they are like. Have u got another link I can go to...

I was quite impressed. I got the ceramics on top and metal on bottom, I was so impressed how particularly the ceramics looked. I was dying to show them off. I might add, Im a very self concsious person normally and I thought I was going to hate them. GO THE CERAMICS!!! :P

I was originally told when I was a kid I would need braces, but the dentist back then said wait until all my adult teeth had come through. And financially I dont think ...

Just a little update on my toothie peg movement, I think its quite substantial. Look at my canine that is sitting right up in the gum and how far it has moved down in 12 days of braces. This is just a few days before braces went on http://i458.photobucket.com/albums/qq302/kaydee_01/IMG_1106.jpg This...
