The first few months is pretty tough, eventually you'll get used to the lower brackets and they won't bother you as much. As for the bite pads, I've had buildups on my molars for over 15 months now and it does get easier :) At first it's really strange trying to eat with those and having pain, but ...

Here's one more pic. Taken about 3 minutes ago. See the tops? Not bad, right?? And yes, this is me purposely biting down on the bottom teeth (edge to edge). NOT my actual bite.

PS Only the tops are coming off..and maybe not even all of them. Maybe just the "social 6." And, like I said, my tops are pretty much completely aligned, etc. The only thing you'll notice is the two middle teeth are kind of funky and that's simply because of a chip I have in the one tooth. My ortho ...

Mag - hey! I know...so sorry! I've been SOOO busy with everything. The wedding planning stuff...and we actually just found a place to move into after we're married! We didn't expect to have that happen until AFTER the wedding, but when we saw the place, we fell in love so we took it. I'll be moving ...

2 topics: Power chains / Braces off for wedding

Power chains: I just thought I'd show some pics of my teeth before my powerchains and after. It amazes me how they really work so quickly! Now, my reason for braces is mostly to fix an overjet and overbite which is actually a skeletal deformity, but to such a slight degree that braces alone will su...

Re: Braces came off today!

So it's been 21 months, 1 week and 4 days for me but I've finally gotten there! My teeth look great! I have a gap that wouldn't close on the lower left but that's no big deal. It's far enough back that most people won't notice it. I'm going to have to take some photos! I've been given Essix retaine...

I sort of feel this way, too...but it seems to have gotten a bit better over time (I've had my lowers on for almost 2 months now). The only thing I would warn about is that if you put your tongue forward like that, it may develop into a habit called "tongue thrusting" and that has its own set of iss...

Okay, so the 'burning' sensation you're describing DEFINITELY sounds like an allergic reaction to SOMETHING. I'm not sure how long you've had these on, but could it be you have an allergy to latex and your mouth is still reacting from that? Or, it could be the nickel, as suggested. Either way, CALL ...

I agree. Although $250 IS a lot of money, it is FAR less than $4-6,000 for needing braces again later on down the road because you didn't wear your retainer. :-\

Good luck Chillin.

You dont want my elastics though. I have to wear two rams on either side as well as a kangaroo on each side. At night I have to put a penguin on in a way which means I can't open my mouth. LOL!
