Bite opening after braces off

I got my braces off last Thurs. and received my essix clear retainer this Wednesday. I could barely touch my front teeth together right before the braces came off and now I am noticing I can't touch them together at all, which seems to have worsened or be related to wearing the essix since 2 days ag...

Why no white wires and retainer wires?

On the topic of having white instead of silver; I did a little searching and couldn't find much about it. Has anybody heard of a Hawley type retainer with the wire across the front being white? I had always thought the white would look better in braces (ceramics). I also dont like the idea of having...

I eat anything. Just bite right into it. Certain things do get stuck more and can be annoying though, but my Waterpick pretty much takes care of it.

It has had a negative impact for me as well. I am a 26 male and with these braces, I feel like I look about 20 or 21. As a result of the looking younger, I feel a little less respected from time to time. Some other stuff that sucks is that having braces makes it a little more physically difficult to...

Messed up speech during braces...

I got my braces on back in Feb 08 to fix my crowded teeth and overbite and have basically been having problems saying "s" sounds since I got them. Obviously having the speech problem is not ideal. I have a lot of new gaps in my teeth right now which I guess along with a little bit of an open bite, m...

The wire has been out almost since right after my last adjustment, however my next is in only a week. Mig...

Wire out of very back bracket. Problem?

Hello,

My wire has come out of the very back bracket, the tube looking part, and has been out a couple weeks. Would anyone here recommend I go get it placed back in? My ortho is close so thats no problem.

Embraceme, your back teeth never touched at all? I am just trying to guage how long I might have to have the bite myself. My back teeth would touch but when I bit down my top teeth would completely cover the bottoms. For me right now its hard to tell if I see a difference in the 2 months I have had ...
