Here they are, at long last! Sorry for the long lapses between my postings lately. Work has been a real struggle, and will probably remain so until the first of the year. I'll try to do better -- I miss all of you! Gotta catch up on all your stories, too! Been a while since I took them, but what str...

Welcome to this amazing forum, Amber! As I'm sure you've already discovered, the people who post here are terrific, and are willing to help in any way they can! Presumably you're working with an ortho you can trust and communicate with. Sounds like you've got a bit of a road ahead of you, but you've...

Congratulations, Freakyteeth, on your b-day! I'm glad things went so well for you. Be sure and treat yourself well the next few days; you may be a little sore and tender (but you knew that, right?) -- salt water rinses, good hydration, lots of wax if you need it to prevent sores, and try and chew ev...

Karen is absolutely right on. Wow, talk about lousy customer service! I agree -- your ortho should know about the way you were treated. Who needs that with the amount of money you're paying? I hope you're otherwise happy with your ortho. Unfortunately some people -- apparently including some of your...

I've been trying to have my "mandadtory" cup of coffee in the morning but I'm actually down to about a 1/2 cup and considering quitting.

Sounds like a great adjustment, Sandi -- wonderful news about your bite's closing up a little.

And congratulations on the oral hygiene :!: Really makes you feel good, doesn't it, to get comments like your ortho gave you?

I've found the same thing happens to me, (letters "s" and "f"), especially if I'm tired or I've been talking a lot and my mouth is a little sore. I don't know if you've had this experience, but I sometimes have a tendency during those times to not open my mouth quite as much. It helps me if I concen...
