what does it do the HERBST? Expand the arch? How awful, your cheek got infected. I hope you're ok. THey told me the only way to correct the overjet is to shave down all my teeth and cap them and redo braces and have TAD implants. I'm so upset. Do you have space for your teeth to move back? I had my...

You look beautiful and your wedding gown is beautiful too. I'm so glad that your orthodontist was willing to remove your braces for your wedding and honeymoon. Is he going to charge you for this? Just curious, did he remove your lower braces too? I bet your teeth felt weird without the braces. Wish...

I went to the doctor Wed morning and he told me it's likely the flu (which I've never had before) and that I'm highly contagio...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Getting my top brackets back on tomorrow

Yes...my short-lived freedom is almost at an end. :( My husband's (WOO HOO! lol) little sister is getting braced for the first time tomorrow as well, so we all went out for a 'last supper before braces.' LOL :) *SIGH* I don't want to go back and get them back on. Can I just NOT go back? LOL Even tho...

Just thought you'd all like to see the pics of my AMAZING naked teeth!! Of course, the brackets go back on the day after tomorrow, but I was able to have them off for the entire honeymoon. YAY! :) In case you forgot, my original thread is here: http://www.archwired.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=31545&h...

WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! They're off and I couldn't be HAPPIER!!! The experience was a TINY BIT traumatic, but nothing terrible. I only gagged once..and that's great for me-a gagger. For a little while, it sort of smelled like smoke when they were using the drill to get the cement off. S...

Thank you everyone!! I'm off to have it done in about 50 minutes!! I'm very, very excited...to the point that I'm kind of being forgetful of how hard it is to get ceramic brackets off!! I'm hoping at least SOME of them will come off a bit more easily. But more than likely, they'll only come off in p...

I went to 2 consultations.... The first one, I learned stuff I was shocked to hear (about why I have an overbite, etc.) and I also hadn't done any insurance research, etc. Also, I was totally unhappy with their 'customer service' so I knew I wouldn't go to them anyway. Then about 2 weeks later I mad...

I know you've already gotten answers, but I still wanted to answer this. "How old is too old to get braces?" When you're dead. That's when you're 'too old.' :) I am slightly joking, but it's true...my ortho has talked about a few 80 year old patients she's had!! Imagine doing it at 80?!?! Dang..I'd ...
