Well, you learn something new every day! What a procedure - poor you.

Gum erosion is something that niggles at the back of my mind, especially now that I have the dreaded "black triangles" AND sensitive teeth!!

While in Tokyo recently, I noticed that the girl serving me was also braced up. My knowledge of Japanese is scant to say the least but I managed to say "onaji"!!! (which means same) while pointing at my mouth and grinning like a woman with a knife in the electric toaster. She laughed too and replie...

I brush, rinse, brush again, then with the toothpaste still on my teeth, floss and TP brush - I read somewhere that the toothpaste acts as a sort of lubricant and helps ease out any detritus.

Listerine

I used to chew gum ALL the time pre-braces as it helped keep my breath fresh. When I was braced my teeth were so painful I had to mush up all my food and chewing gum was out of the question.Well, after a few weeks of that, I soon got fed-up and decided to try a teeny little bit of gum, as I'd heard...

Hi! I'm an oldie who's had a had a narrow palate all her life. I had an expander when I was 12 and didn't think it made much difference and now, at 46 I had a helix fitted to correct my cross bite - and amazingly - it has done the trick! It stayed in for just over three months, caused MAJOR annoyan...

Hi there! I also have a narrow palate which is either something I've inherited or brought upon myself, due to tongue thrust. I originally sought the advice of an ortho as I wasn't happy with one tooth - upper right lateral - which I thought sat too far back. However, I too, was given a catalogue of ...

I'd had my teeth cleaned about a month before I got braced, with the hygienist at my dental surgery. However, when the ortho braced me up, he did a quick scrub and polish so that the glue would adhere properly to my teeth. You can still have your teeth cleaned while you're in braces - in fact it's p...

wow - your teeth look fab! I'd be delighted with a smile like that! Did you have the bottoms of your front uppers filed straight? My teeth are aligning nicely, but due to my night-time grinding, I've managed to "shave" off the bottoms and they aren't level. I noticed in your before pix your uppers w...
