Retainers in... freaking out... my rant... ?!

Okay.. I imagine someone else has posted this.. and I did search prior to posting.. but needed to rant... So, yesterday before getting my braces off, my bite felt perfect! Maybe a teeny bit wonky in some areas... but was assured it may just need a little bit of sanding down from the dentist to be "p...

Dear Braces, Today I found out that I will be saying goodbye to you next Wednesday. I never thought I would say this, but I think I will miss you. I know we fought a lot, but we had some good times, and you were there for me so much. I will never forget the time you got a black bean stuck on you on ...

Bonding & Jacked Up edges :) Plus a little nervous.. :(

Hi all! Looks like I will be a member of the "october brace club!" My dentist planned to do a little shaping and whitening when my braces come off, so I had an appoint with her to make sure everything was exactly where she wanted it so she could do her job post-braces. She made a few helpful suggest...

Last Months in Braces... Your experiences??

Hi all! I am excited to report that after a way too long journey in my braces, I have been told, confidently by my ortho, that she envisions me coming out of my braces in SEPTEMBER! It seems there is still a bit of fine tuning to do.. which has me curious. What were your final months in braces like?...

My guess would be that maybe there was some decay developing while it was impacted (this can happen I think if it's been impacted a wh...

Re: Scared to have braces removed?

I am terrified, too! I had 4 teeth removed and a canine exposed.. and I have dreams that I wake up the day after I get my braces off and my gaps have opened back up and my canine magically moves back to the roof of my mouth. LOL!! I have had my braces almost 4 years, they are so apart of who I am no...

My Story, Frustrated w/ braces

Just wanted to share a little insight.. I posted on here about 6 weeks ago. I was a very upset, frustrated orthodontic patient. I had my IBraces on for going on 3 and a half years (with an original treatment plan of 26 months!) and was just not seeing the 'light at the end of the tunnel.' Especially...
