Braces off but my jaw is clicky!

Ok, I didn't think I'd be posting on here anymore but I've possibly developed a problem. Today I went to the ortho coz my bottom permanent retainer had come loose. The assistant fixed that, so its fine. While she was working on me my jaw kept popping. It's done that a little bit in the past, not a l...

Re: Keep molds of your finished treatment?

They gave me my one to keep for that reason. And I'll make sure I look after it too coz I'm terrible with getting them done. Small mouth, gagging and all! Hate it! Plus I like my mold. I'd have wanted to keep it anyway. Weird I know! :lol:

Re: Permanent Retainer is a PAIN! :(

Yep now I have my retainers (same as you- essix on top just at night and permanent ones as well) I know it's fine wearing them and I see why some of us have both now. Just sounded a bit scary when I read the posts on here! Like i thought maybe that would be double the discomfort or sumthin. I have h...

Re: Essix question

I'm getting an upper retainer on monday, just to wear to bed at night. I dont know what kind. Is the Essix one common, whats it like?? Wonder if I'll get that one. And why do some of us need a removable one AND permanent ones?! Would have thought the bonded ones would be enough! Not that mine have b...

Re: Wisdom teeth removal costs? NEW ZEALAND or anywhere else

My ortho wants two out. First she was thinking four then changed her mind to just the bottom ones. I think the top two have come through ok. Gets a bit confusing tryn to count the ones i can see in the mirror, remembering how many most adults have before extractions etc, to work it out! Both bottom ...

Re: Wisdom teeth removal costs? NEW ZEALAND or anywhere else

Na, i think its just Otago that has a dental school. I've asked around and it seems like other people have paid around $1500 per tooth at oral surgeons. Auckland is expensive (for everything, I'm not just talking teeth!). Anyway, I'll book an appointment and find out for sure. Another question just ...

Shows that people around you dont look at your teeth as much as you think! Good luck :). P.S Please dont be put off by the wisdom teeth bit, thats another issue al...

Re: WHY DID NOONE NOTICE MY LACK OF BRACES (and more issues)

Thanks guys, your messages made me feel better :). Hehe I posted the same type message last time I had my braces off, I reread it last night. Someone said how its funny how in many cases more people notice your bad teeth BEFORE your braces go on than they do when you have teeth that are improving WI...

Wisdom teeth removal costs? NEW ZEALAND or anywhere else!

I'm 27 and have just had my braces removed. I need 2 wisdom teeth out otherwise I risk screwing up all the treatment I've had (and its been A LOT!!). Both are impacted, 1 needs an oral surgeon. I'm betting this is gonna cost heaps. Wonder if I could take my xrays in from debanding day to help save m...

WHY DID NOONE NOTICE MY LACK OF BRACES (and more issues)! :(

Has this happened to any of you? This is the second time i've had braces off and no one said anything! Except the people I told! I had them off yesterday. Last time it took 5 days before anyone noticed, wonder how long it'll take this time?! Grrrrr. And now I have to have 2 wisdom teeth out. Not loo...

Re: did u get your permanent retainer on same day as debandi

Cool, thanks for that! How come some people need permanent and removable retainers? When I heard I'd be getting permanent ones I was like oh cool that means I wont have to worry bout the hassle of removables (coz I had an expander once and that was a pain). Anyways I guess it wont be a major, main t...
