Re: Can I do it?

Hi guys! Sorry for my long absent, I don´t think I have been this long from this forum before. I just got two new miniature horses from Spain and have been doing all the crazy paperwork that needs to be done. I´m also trying to find a new place to live, so there has been a busy time! Things are not ...

Re: Kimmie's Road To A Beautiful Smile (PICS)

You are one of my “heros” in this forum. You can tolerate so much pain and you still go on, taking whatever they put in your mouth. If Eric asked to me to take painkillers for my next appointment then there would not be any Ebony at that appointment at all :lol: . I would be far away from his clinic...

Re: Can I do it?

Eric is the best. He is the one in the million ortho, and I was very lucky that I got him. How many other orthos would have put that much time and energy into one pt? A crazy anxiety pt like me! When the anxiety is bad I always ask for a debonding and Eric knows that it´s my anxiety speaking. If I a...

Re: What do springs do?

My ortho talked about putting a spring on my back molar to my canine to reduce my overjet. Since we need to keep my braces as “simple” as possible because of my dental phobia this was not an option that my phobia liked (we are trying to do my treatment with as less gear in my mouth as possible), so ...

Re: Can I do it?

I´m back! Today I did something that I had promised myself to never do in front of Eric, I started to cry. Those stupid tears arrived in his waiting room and when he came to get me I could not control the tears at all... I have this regular chair I tend to sit in his clinic and when it´s necessary w...

Re: Can I do it?

Thanks guys! :heart: We call it figure 8 (because it goes like an 8 between the teeth) and I know that when they have settled down they don´t hurt any more (and wont get changed at each adjustment). But I read somewhere on this forum about one who had much pain with these and that was enough to trig...

Re: What happens if you can no longer aford your payments?

Some orthos just remove your braces there and then (and if they are kind give you some kind of retainer). Others might refuse to debond you before you have paid what you owe them. They stop your adjustments and keep your braces on as far as it can go without damaging teeth. Othes keep the treatment ...

Re: Can I do it?

Last Monday I worked on this dentalphobia clinic and it was very interesting to see that side of their treatment. They allowed me to take part in everything, they really wanted me to learn as much as possible. I´m very glad they trusted me that much and I¨m very grateful to be able to be there. They...

Re: Time to find a new orthodontist? Braces for a year (pics

As a layman, I don't see any problems with your treatment at all. You appear to have a lot of progress, and it looks reasonable to me... but only your ortho can answer if it's what he expected. And I'd kill to be seeing an office so efficient that I was out the door in 15. It's rare for me to get o...
