long-time retainer-wearer dilemma

Hi, I got my braces off 1 year, 3 months ago. I have a bonded retainer on the bottom and and wear a hawley on the top. I have been really good about wearing my retainer. I have worn the Hawley 24/7 almost since I got them off, though this was on required for 6 months. I lost my retainer while on vac...

I had a tooth on the bottom that was like that when I had braces. It was only slightly off-line, but it never corrected itself. You can't notice from the front, only looking down at your bottom teeth, which only you see. It's not the end of the world if things arn't absolutely perfect. I don't even ...

Yeah, I got $750, but can't remember all the details. I've been done for about a year, now.

Re: Grape Powerchain

My latest trial ... Grape powerchain on my lowers. I love it, coz it's a dark blue purple ... a much richer colour than the pink purples.

Having gone through this process and invisalign being offered as an option for me I'm glad I went the whole 9 yards.

Get braces is really not as awful as it seems. It's better to correct everything now and not have to worry later.

Good luck tomorrow. You'll probably be a little sore for the first few days and may have trouble eating some foods.

Nothing to be concerned about though :wink:

Hey, Welcome!

I got braces when I was 23 and it wasn't bad at all. I met my current bf when I was 24 and he said he thought they were really cute and one of the reasons he was attracted to me. So Smile! :wink:

oh, yeah, since I don't have braces anymore (but, being on here I really miss them! When they took them off I wanted them back on) I put a weight-loss tracker as I've lost some weight recently and don't have far to go until my goal weight.

Hope no one objects
