Just one more day...

I am soooooooooooooooooo nervous! Braces go on in one more day, on Thursday. I've never had them before so I'm dreading the "soreness" and the canker sores. But I'm prepared for just about anything, I've already bought everything I need except a waterpik, going to get that tomorrow. Looking forward ...

Crazy4Snow's Path to a Perfect Smile

Over the last 6 months I've gone through 3 root canals (2 of which failed resulting in extractions and I can't even have the implants/bridgework to replace them until the braces come off), a deep scaling on uppers and lowers, a regular cleaning, 1 filling, I'm currently bleaching so my teeth will be...

Re: Braces - prep for jaw surgery

I don't know about the jaw surgery but I've had my wisdom teeth taken out and one of them was impacted, this was 20+ years ago. I felt nothing while it was being done, I was totally out/asleep. Afterward there was some bleeding but it stopped late the next day. Pain was minimal as I took the painkil...

Would LOVE some answers before appt. on Thursday

I, unfortunately, have to have 2 teeth pulled, failed root canals. They are next to each other, on my lower left, the next to last molar and the one in front of it. WHAT in the world are they gonna do with that space??? I would think a bridge before braces is not an option for obvious reasons, it wo...

Re: Ceramic Braces (top), Metal Braces (bottom)--- Invisalig

Wow, you sound like me. Root canals are no fun at all, especially when they've failed and the teeth have to be pulled anyway. Do you like the ceramics better than the metal?

Re: I finally jumped in

Congratulations! I'm headed that way too. I'm not sure how my treatment is gonna go, my dentist and ortho have been working together and I'll find out on Thursday what they've decided to do. I'm excited to have finally taken the leap to beautify my smile, I'm sure we won't regret it!

Re: For those asking about Mouth and Nose changes - Pics Add

Wow! What a difference! I'm finding the surgical aspect of mouth/teeth correction very interesting...there is a lot more to straightening your teeth than braces, I hope for me it won't require anything drastic.
