Re: How soon should I brush after eating?

I'm 6 months in and I brush immediately after eating anything. Even at restaurants, I go to the bathroom and brush and floss, I don't care what people think when they walk in and look at me funny. I can't stand to feel food in stuck in my braces, gotta get it out!

Re: Does you Ortho office do cleaning on your teeth...

My dentist and ortho's office are next to each other so it's quite convenient for me. I just had my first cleaning a couple of weeks ago. I went to ortho and they removed the ligs and wires and sent me next door for my cleaning (and thankfully I got an A+++ on my cleaning). Then the dentist sent me ...

Re: Teeth literally LOOSE..

Totally normal, fortunately I had read about this on here so I didn't freak out, but it's quite unnerving.

Re: Day 2 in braces. Ouch.

I know exactly how you feel...one of the reasons I didn't go with invisaligns is because I knew that I would take them off if I was in a great deal of pain. But the pain passes and with my metals I was forced to endure it. I went through a rough first week but it's been pretty decent since then. Han...

Re: Smoothing Of Tooth Edges

My ortho has told me that he will be filing my teeth when the braces come off and that will even them all up. Yay!

Re: Day 3--constant headaches and bite blocks

Yes, yes, yes!!!!!!! Fortunately my headaches subsided after about a week and now I only get them at every adjustment. Good luck, it will end I promise.

Re: will face fill back out after braces are taken off? be h

Well, my cheeks are a little fuller as is my lips. All of my teeth have been moved "outward" so I guess that's to be expected. No one else really notices the cheeks but they have noticed the lips. I know it's not just the braces pushing my lips out because it didn't show up immediately after I got t...

Re: Crazy4Snow's Path to a Perfect Smile

Wow!!! You're teeth look great! I'm gonna have to get disciplined like you on the cleaning. I've been slacking on and off for the past several months now. :? Thanks Buckey! I'm terrified of getting a bad report card from the dentist so that keeps me pretty motivated to keep my teefers clean. :lol: ...
