Thanks guys Hmmmmm perhaps the reason also follows why I shouldn't really be eating popcorn anyway...I have a fistula in my palate and I've had a couple of close calls with husk (assume that's the pericarp you are talking about) getting stuck in the fistula. So I guess since I now have 2 reasons not...

Why No Popcorn

Why is popcorn on the no-no list? Is it incase you eat an unpopped kernel? Or something else? Just wondering cause I've had a couple of home cinema afternoons with the kids recently and I've really fancied popcorn (I'm the kinda person who can't go to the cinema and not have popcorn) but not been br...

I miss being able to eat BBQ ribs properly (I can eat them, just have to use a fork and knife), apples (I'm not a huge apple fan, if I was given all the fruit in the world, there'd be many other's I'd choose before apples) but they smell so good now I can't eat them. And with it being bonfire night ...

actually....scrap that

Just had a right good look in my mouth with a torch and I *think* it is my wisdom tooth that is giving me the problem. The molar next to it has certainly moved so looks like the wisdom tooth is thinking weyhay! I have some space to come through a bit more

Blinkin sore!

Abscess or 'Normal' Pain With Braces

Had 3rd adjustment just over a week ago. Big thick wires and been really quite sore since. But this past 2 days I've been really sore on bottom right hand side. 2 or 3 teeth in particular, I'm a bit swollen, feels like I've a lump on my jaw. Still taking ibuprofen and anadin extra (paracetamol, caff...

Hiya I have a class III malocclusion. I had fixed braces when I was around 14 on the top only to pull my top teeth over the top and in front of my lower teeth. I didn't have surgery then and was happy with the results at the time (all I really wanted was straight teeth and top teeth in front of the ...

Depends what shade of pink you get (I don't know about teal as not had those yet) but light pink can stain.
After I ate a stir fry with turmeric in it my light pink ligs turned a lemon kinda colour. But it didn't look too bad, just they weren't pink.

Can I Grumble?

After 3rd adjustment 4 days ago, I'm feeling miserable this time round :( That is 2 really thick wires on my braces...I think the bottom archwire is round and the top certainly looks square/rectangluar. I knew as soon as they went on before the ligs went on I was in for a sore few days. I have 3 mou...

I have had 3 adjustments so far with only 6 weeks between them.

But this last adjustment I've got really thick wires on them (my ortho is feeling evil this month I guess :lol: ) and my next adjustment is 9 weeks away!

I'm sure your ortho will know what he's doing :)
