half size Essix retainer

I got my retainers today. A normal hawley for the bottom and a half size Essix to the top. By half size i mean that the plastic only covers half the tooth, not up to the gums. I asked about that and they said half size is ebough and it is not good if the plastic covers gums.

Anyone else?

I did not have anything special in my mind other than have a teeth cleaning and a checkup. After it was found out that i had two cavities i wanted them to be filled asap. And they were fixed 20 hours later :)

I had teeth cleaning today after I got my braces removed yesterday.

I had two cavities between premolars that are adjacent to each other, one is a new one and another is an old filling that had cracked.

When i was a kid and had my cross bite buttons removed the ortho just let the glue on to the teeth. Some dentist later on were asking what is this crap on your teeth... Well, i guess the ortho expected a general dentist to remove them, which never happened though. The glue disappered by itself, but ...

One dentist said that it appears too deep to just sand down and apply a thin resin to it like a filling that matches your tooth color. I have fillings on my front teeth. They are tooth coloured but you can see them in some light and if you know to look for them. I guess other people wont see them t...

Wait and see how your teeth look after debonding! Before braces my upper front second lateral was overlapping the first lateral. I had a cavity there and the filling did not look good. When having braces a huge gap developed between these teeth. Did not look good: a filling next to a big gap. I was ...

Braces are off!!

Removing braces was very fast! I had six ceramic brackets and they came off very easily with some special pliers. It did not hurt at all. Actually it hurt more to remove metal brackets as they dont break when removing them, so you can use more power.... I dont have pictures yet, i will put here late...

Your crowns can move easier because they are not inside the bone. Your crowns are pulled to right place but the roots are then tilted. Square wire straightens the the roots afterwards,
