***Super Jealous***

I dream of my debrace day. It can not arrive fast enough! I just have to make it through winter and spring and hopefully (knock on wood) I will be done in the summer.

Signs of Movement!

I see quite a few posts on seeing visible signs of movement. However, I wanted new braceees to know that there are more ways to tell that your teeth are moving and something is going on in your mouth. Here is my list feel free to add: You can feel your teeth becoming more loose and sometimes you see...

Changes09, I just got elastics this past Monday so I haven't gotten to your state of exasperation yet. However I would like to encourage you to continue on wearing your elastics. Just think the more you wear them the faster you will be done with braces. LOL I am to well acquainted with the feeling o...

I always hated those people who were near the end when I had so far to go, now I am one of them to her and it feels GREAT! I dream of the day I ...

*OFFICIALY* Apart of the Elastic Alliance!

So Monday was my umpteenth (stopped counting) adjustment and my ortho christened me with two bags of 1/4" heavy elastics. Thankfully I only wear one from my left canine to my left last molar. I have to wear it as much as possible and take it off before meals and put it back asap. However, I have alr...

I do that exact same thing! I make liitle time line events to make the treatment time go faster. I think if I can just make it to January (4 months away) I will only have 6 months of treatment left if I stay on track., although I really hope they come off before my 26th birthday (Aug. 10th). I don't...

Patience.....

I am really trying to be patient with my treatment, but all of the things that bothered me aesthically prior to braces look corrected to me, however I am nowhere near the END. I can feel that my bite is off now. Whereas before I really couldn't feel it. I just wish there was a way that I could close...

Welcome to Archwired.com! Your treatment time will fly by. My only suggestion to relieve the irrotation is a few salt and warm water rinses throughout the day. It helps to relieve the raw areas caused by braced and other appliances.

I went to my dentist this morning. He gave bad news and worse news. The bad news is that I need my wisdom teeth extracted. He took a panoram x-ray and my upper left wisdom tooth is touching my last molar. I go tomorrow to the oral surgeon for a consult. The worse news is that I have another floss ca...

Excrutiating Pain One Year Later!

I have been braced over one year and just a few days ago I have started to get really sharp pain in the left side of my mouth in both arches. My ortho put a wire figure eight along my left arch as well as a powerchain. She is trying to close a gap between my second premolar and last molar. The pain ...

I feel like once you are determined to get braces you will find away. I lived with my sister, her husband, and 2 kids for a whole year to save. The money was there I just had to cut back on privacy. You might have to forego other privleges i.e. cellphone, cable, internet whatever you like to splurge...
