Re: How fast do elastics work?

My first three weeks were very slow, really I did not see any changes at all. Remember boss asked me about if I saw any changes with my elastic and I told him no, I did not think they worked for me. But then the next day I woke up and looked at my teeth in the mirrow and boom! My canine is being mov...

You could always film one as a video and post a link on the forum. That would be so cool! Think about it. We'd also get to see you!!
Yeah, maybe I can do that on Friday. We don´t have pt on Friday because boss is not there. That would be cool, yes 8)

Re: Tobilei's Train Tracks.

Yes, I thought that those cutting tools must be magnetized so they can catch the small pieces they clip off. Yes, I wish I could give you guys a tour in our ortho office or something to explain things and let you guys try putting on ligatures on models, cut wires and so on :wink: It´s very fun tool...

Re: Tobilei's Train Tracks.

When they clip the wire at the ortho office, I always wonder where it goes or does the ortho grab it quickly? lol I got my bottom archwire this morning, and he threaded it on and put the ligs on and then cut the excess and i dont feel it drop in my mouth or anything. They are magicians arent they? ...

Re: Story of anxious Mylovetheeth

I know the feeling, I cancelled bondings myself and it took a while before those lowers went on. If you can do it just after two months than that is amazing!! I did not get mine before at least 6 months (or was it 7?) because of my anxiety. I was scared because I thought I would have to worry about ...

Re: Annoying issue with cross bite elastics

I have a similar issue but I don´t use elastics for cross bite (I use class II elastics). On my left side they are always on but my right one keep coming of every time I open my mouth. It´s so annoying! :gavel: I have therefore become very lazy with elastic on that side when I´m at work or out with ...

Re: Bite is crooked and weird after braces?

I have the same overjet as you, on my left side I have 8 mm overjet and on my right side I have 4 mm. This was not something I had before braces but my teeth were so tight together then and my arch was like a Ω and when my ortho made it to a U I got this strange overjet. The reason I got this is bec...

Re: First day in braces age 27

Congrat from starting your journey! :thumbsup: In the beginning it everything is new, strange, annoying and exacting at the same time but after a while it´s just get “boring” (to use Klobird words) because you get used to them. You won´t notice them that much and at times forgets them, which is a go...

Re: Tobilei's Train Tracks.

Aww, not fun to read both of your posts about pokey wires. After a while you won´t have any but it´s a pest in the beginning (at least you know that your teeth is moving). Tobilei: Why not ask the ortho to teach you how to clip it? We teach our pt this and give them a tool to do so if they often com...

Re: Can I do it?

Felt that my treatment with elastics were going slooooooow and wanted to speed it up. I´m currently in ¼ 4 oz 6mm elastics on both sides which I don´t mind at daytime because I can speak normally with them but at night I asked boss if I could use double elastics on my left side (which has class 2) t...

Re: Can I do it?

Thanks for the support guys! I feel a little better now but I still can´t stop the feeling that they need to go off my teeth. Kipepeo: I don´t know how long I have left because we have been going so many times back and forth, I think it´s basically up to me. If I only want to close the extraction ga...

Re: Getting an appointment

Being both a pt and an assistant at a ortho clinic I know both problems. Most orthos don´t look at their schedule but rather trust that their assistant in the reception to give them the information that they need (who is the next pt, what the next pt has, what chair the pt is in, if there are some i...

Re: Tobilei's Train Tracks.

I´m sorry to hear about your pain! How is your teeth today? I wonder how I would react to such pain, I would probably remove my braces at once myself :roll: Wish I had your straight there! :heart: I would not worry about what the ortho would think of you, you will not be his first pt to do so. We ge...
