Re: Can I do it?

Thanks guys! But I´m not the best assistant or anything, I´m just trying take care of our pt :wink: , it´s because of my own anxiety I guess :roll: Right now I´m in a bad moment or something with my braces, I just want them off. I keep imagining getting them off and how great it will be. It´s simila...

Re: Bite Blocks / Turbos

I had overbite (deep bite) and was supposed to get bite turbos behind my front teeth. Could not stand the thought of it, it was either no bite turbos or no lower braces. We gave the upper braces 2-3 extra months to work their magic before put lower braces one. By waiting a little longer with the low...

Re: molar brackets vs molar bands.

I have brackets on my molars (molar tubes) and I´m one of those pt that eat even hard things like carrots, caramel and hard candy with my back teeth. They still hang on and which they have done since day one (I wonder how debonding will be if they still are glued this strong to my teeth :shock: ) On...

Re: Can I do it?

I just have to share a story. Had a pt with dental fear today, she had been skipping a few appointments because of (what I think) her dental fear. She spoke in an almost whisper because of her fear. Poor girl. Before I did anything at all, even getting the dental tools I sat down with her and explai...

Re: zebra elastics

Im wearing them from last molars on lowers going up to top canines. The Orthodontist placed wires around both canines so they wouldn't move then put ligs over bracket. So elastics are going diagonal from lower to upper. It's got my entire top row of teeth very achy and tender. :cry: awww, I'm sorry...

Re: embarassed about my braces- need some encouragement

I was very embarrassed with my braces at first, people could hardly understand me when I spoke because I tried so hard to hide them with my lips. But it got better after a while. Remember the day very well. Spoke to a cute boy at our local store and smiled a normal smile, forgetting my braces. It wa...

Re: zebra elastics

I got a bit heavier elastic than Zebra (same oz but smaller size) and can’t feel any pain with them. Those first few minutes I try to talk when they are new can be a bit hard, it feels tight, but then I don’t notice them anymore, I forget that I even have them on most of the time. Zero pain so far, ...

Re: Can I do it?

Monday is the big appointment day! So far I’m very calm and don’t think too much on it, which is a big step. Normally I would count hours and days. Before the appointment with Eric I have an appointment at the Dental Phobia Clinic, it might be my last appointment with them. Strange! Had dinner with ...

Re: What was your primary reason for orthodontic treatment?

I originally wanted to extract a very dominating canine (my brother did this in his teen and his teeth became straight after that) but my dentist refused, he wanted his good “neighbor” (orthodontist) to look at it. I think this was because of all my other bite problems that I did not see myself (dee...
