SWITCHING!?

I know a lot of people switch from invisalign to braces, but have you guys heard of anyone switching from braces to invisalign. I think its kind of risky because I doubt my ortho will switch me back over to braces for free if everything doesn't work out as planned. Also I payed 5210 for braces and h...

when my bracket fell off in the back, i came on here and asked a question about the exact same thing. I was told by a few people on here that since its at the very back the movement would be really slow and so not to worry to much. Thanks blindboarder! When you say the movement would be slow do you...

Sorry about the freak out I have had a hard braces week but am feeling slightly better now. The bracket that fell off is the last molar on top arch. My question is, are my braces still working since the bracket that fell off was the last one? And how does the emergency phone number work? Is it a str...

I am so jealous! My wire is poking so bad! They always ask me before I leave if everything feels okay and it always does, but then the minute I get home..poke poke poke.


I wonder if I have anything around the house. I was planning to call my ortho today to get it clipped but its such a PITA.

It depends on a lot of things. For Instance: 1. Has the wire you currently have achieved all it can? If not, then the wire may be taken out reshaped and placed back in. 2. If you need a new wire you will probably go up one or two sizes, which will still be a pretty thin wire. In order to have a "thi...

I had one devil tooth :evil: that was extremely painful to move up to the gumline. I would accidently hit that tooth on another one and it would literally make me jump up in bed, right out of a deep deep sleep. Worst nighttime pain EVER ha! But, I would just take whatever I had around the house for ...

My first adjustment was WORSE than getting my braces applied, sorry to say. Like Andromeda said, I am pretty much on a soft food diet after every single adjustment. But, slowly the time it takes to get back to "normal" get shorter and shorter with each adjustment.

Good question! I am interested to see others answers as well. Ever since I had my braces put on I wear MUCH LESS jewelry. NO earrings at all except cartilage ( and this is coming from someone who had 9 ear piercings prior to). I hate how my earrings looks with my braces. I feel like its just toooooo...

Newboysgrl how long is your estimate? I just read your blog and your teeth looked pretty good to start with. Also, why did you have to wait 8 months to get the bottoms? Sorry, ha just curious!
