Re: Frustrated

I can't relate to you now because I'm only 1 year in on a supposed 18 month sentence. But if it were me I would just deal with it because I know the end result would be worth it. My lowers are gonna be issues with mine, I already can see that...I won't be the least bit surprised when/if he tells me ...

Re: Getting rid of stains..

Has she tried baking soda with one of those little teeny brushes twice a week for 2-3 weeks? Also, once she does get rid of the stain tell her to use a straw to drink...everything! I even use a straw for my hot coffee...I hate it but it's a necessary evil to keep the fluid from getting on the front ...

Re: Anyone else accidentally bite lips or inside of cheeks?

All the time! Still, even after a year I do it. It's a pain, no doubt. I also have a bad habit of not bringing my uppers and lowers together, they're always just a tad bit apart so I find that natural mouth suction will bring my cheeks in between them and when I do go to clinch them down I bite my c...

Re: Day 2 and ulcers

If you're here in the USA go and get some Zilactin-B from your local drugstore. It was a lifesaver for me!!! The stuff works miracles!

Re: 24, UK. Need braces desperately. Need encouragement.

DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anytime you second guess your decision to get braces, go look at before, during and after photos of other people. Doing that literally cinched it for me. I'm 45 years old, have had braces on for 1 year now and have never regretted getting them. Even in those horrible first ...

Re: not sleeping, panicking!

It WILL get better, I promise! I went through a similar thing with mine. I felt "trapped" in my braces and would panic that they were there and I couldn't get them off. I stayed very busy trying not to think of them that way. I took pain killers when necessary and I stayed on a soft food diet for ne...

Re: Whitening teeth after braces

I've done a LOT of research on this and I absolutely refuse to have them professionally whitened by the Zoom method. Most reviews I've read for that are negative with most people saying it was excrutiatingly painful. I have sensitive teeth too. My retainers are going to be like invisaligners and the...
