I dont think too much adhesive would interfere with brushing. Better safe than sorry and hving treatment time pushed back for a patient bc of brackets falling off. As far as this being a normal occurence I don't know. Every ortho is different.

I would go with a third consultation from a different ortho. Anything as permanent as extractions is nothing to decide just by one opinion. Please take into consideration that once those teeth are gone they are gone forever. Also bracket brand has little to do with how great an ortho is at doing the...

Honestly, after a good three to six months they become a part of you. I still have days or moments when I wish I didn't have braces. I am already youthful looking, but the braces make me look so much younger. Since having them I get carded for everything rated R movies, alcohol, mature SPAMS. As a w...

Wow! That is a mess. This may sound dumb but have you talked to your ortho about having a treatment plan set up w/o said tooth. I don't know if that's a possibilty to be considered. Seems to me like you need another dentist. I would press them to redo the crown which you have already paid for.

You could show them this message board too. It would show your parents that you are concerned enough about your teeth and treatment plan to find some stuff out on your own. Please reconsider the extractions or get two more consults. When I was in 8th grade I had a consultation with an ortho who sugg...

I don't think there is a time frame. You should be able to stick around and give friendly advice and opinions.

Super Nervous!

This morning I made my appointment to have my wisdom teeth removed. I already have my braces so I am super nervous. The doctor said that my braces wouldn't be a problem, but I still fear that I will wake up with something broken or out of place. I know that the scenario is highly unprobable, but you...

I would not be friends with my ortho on FB. I feel like that would be crossing a line. She is friendly towards me in the office but that's just good chairside manners. Other than braces and wanting me to have the best smile possible we have nothing in common.

I know exactly what you mean! I have been there and gone and am now on my second wave of those exact feelings. I just want my treatment to be done, and 13 more months is going to kill me. I hope and pray that our teeth move fast and in a safe way. I am now to the stage where my O us correcting my cl...

Checking In Adjustment Today!

It has been awhile since I have posted. I had an adjustment today and X-rays too. I asked my lovely ortho when I could expect to be done and she said 13 months. :( :( I feel really discouraged but she said that my use of rubberbands would determine the actual time. My midline is coming along well an...

I have them on the left side going from my upper canine to my lower third now second molar. Lately I have been having pain mostly at night around my upper second molar. The pain has...

I'm Ready for My Pretty Smile Now!!

I would rather not sound so vain, but I would like my pretty smile now. Where is the time machine when I need it? I just saw one of my childhood buddies (we went to school and rode the bus together she is about 8 years my junior) PROM pictures and her smile was gorgeous! I went to PROM solo, but my ...
