Thanks for the replies Chicago29 and bb :D Yes, I think it may be a bit of both: the braces and being predispositioned to this condition. I now have another antibiotic and I'm seeing my dentist tomorrow. My gum is killing me and I awoke this morning at 3 a.m. in extreme pain. I had to take my retain...

Ok, so I've been a bad girl and went MIA here for way too long! :oops: I still don't have pics of my retainers. Honestly the excitement has worn off. I'm still wearing them for 8-10 hours per night but will soon be going to every second or third night and see how that works. Well, it depends.... I m...

Bone loss from braces

Hi all, I've been a member of this board since Feb. 2007 but I've been MIA pretty much since I got my braces off over a year ago...sorry :( I've recently been having trouble with getting a gum infection on the upper left side. I went to my dentist and had to have an extremely deep cleaning(she froze...

Lola, my ortho charges $75 each for replacements (have two free replacements to use up first). Wow, $75 is not bad considering what my ortho charges. It'll cost me $250 per retainer to replace! :shock: Of course, any cost to replace sucks. I thought I'd cracked my lower one last week (felt a ridge ...

Thank you Flaka !! :D Ugh, sorry to hear things are going slowly. I remember being at that stage from about 6 months until near the end. It felt(and looked) like nothing was happening and I thought my teeth were straight by the 6 month mark. Now, when I look back at pics, I can tell things were chan...

Hi Peggy ! Thank you!! Life's been great since being debraced! :D I'm wearing my retainers for 10 hours/night and it's great being able to eat things I couldn't while in braces...like corn on the cob! I think I've had it 4 times since getting them off a month ago :lol: . How much longer do you have?...

I am in upper and lower essix retainers and I was told to take them out whenever eating or drinking anything(except water). As far as I know, they will stain so I wouldn't suggest leaving them in, especially while drinking coffee. I know my teeth are stained from drinking coffee and I now drink it w...
