Stiff Neck

Perhaps I'm being a bit irrational, but ever since Thursday evening, one side of my neck has been really, really tender. I always kind of feel dizzy, have run a fever, and feel cold/hot all the time. I am vaccinated against the flu and meningitis. I'm sure I'm just sick but it worries me that this o...

I have a small journal named MacGirl4Ever's Journal. My spacers were taken out this week so I now have molar bands on four of my second to the last back molars. My class is torn between hot pink "because it's cute", green "for St. Patty's Day" and blue "because it's _____'s favorite color". The fina...

You and I will be braced on the same day! Congratulations! I had my back molars banded this week just as you did! I'm a teacher as well though my students are in middle school and high school. They're voting which color ligature bands I will get next week. You're really lucky to have had everything ...

Today, they performed all the usual records (x-rays, impressions, photos), took off my spacers (thank God!) and fitted my molar bands. I have to go back next Tuesday for both top and bottom brackets and the first arch wire. Until then, my cheeks are experiencing their first cuts in seventeen years b...

I remembered that spacers were painful, but it was not like this! My teeth are now super tight from my canines through my second premolar. The two molars that have the spacers between them, however, aren't as sore. Yesterday was miserable but today is better. Eating is still horrible. I'm taking 800...

MacGirl4Ever's Journal

I had braces for two years when I was 11-13. I didn't wear my retainer the way I was supposed to and my teeth shifted. I had my wisdom teeth extracted when I was 25 and my teeth shifted even more. At 30 I decided that enough was enough and that this time I'd finally do it right. My appointment for ...
