Impacted Canine

I just had another exposure surgery done last week after my chain broke. The surgeon flapped up the gum and put on the bracket and chain and sutured it. I was afraid the tooth had become ankylosed since it was not moving and caused the bracket and chain to come off. The surgeon did what he could to ...

Good for you, I am 35 and have had them for a year. My husband thinks their "cute" I have people find out how old I am and they cant beleive it because I look so young so there are some perks aside from great teeth. I can also tell you that you will no longer hide your smile once you have braces, wh...

Although I cannot relate to your story as I have different mouth issues I too have surgery coming up to bring down my impacted canines. I am 34 so we are close in age. I'm sure that you, like me, wish this were done when we were in our teen years like everyone else but it is exciting to finally get ...

I dont even wear the colors I just have the braces. I feel like I may be too old for them =) You do not have to choose any, just see what you think once you get them on and go from there.
