Any thing I can drink with essix besides water?

Having to take out my retainer each time I want to drink is a pain in the arse.

Can I drink vitamin water or sprite soda?

Hey Hokie is it possible to show before and after pic?

I have the same problem, lip incompetence, I actually went with the removal of 4 tooth but no surgery, and I'm not seeing improvement in my lip competence, only straight teeth.

What do you think? Fixing receeding chin without surgury!

Hey guys, I was researching on trying to fix my receding chin and lip strain and found this guy Dr. Rivkin who uses injection called Artefill (which can last about 10 years or permanent). It only cost about $3000 and can be done in without surgery. There's a before and after photo here: http://www.w...

orthognathic surgery after braces?

If we still have issues with receding chin, can orthognathic surgery be done after braces or does it have to be before?

Kallisandra I'm in exactly the same boat as you. I have lip incompetance/lip strain and also my chin isn't quite attractive because of it. I had braces a couple years ago and it did not fix my lip strain. And I really wanted to fix it badly, because it was really depressing. So I got braces again wi...

When I first go my retainers put on, I couldn't speak clearly because I wasn't use to them. Give it a week or so and you'll be fine.

I'll be honest, my extraction didn't go too well and is probably worse than having my braces. Even with shots for numbing my whole mouth (weird feeling) I can actually feel my dentist teeth pulling one of my tooth out. Worse part is the bleeding which lasted a whole week, couldn't stop it till about...
