Re: Ladybirds story braced 29.07.09 - Damon 3's with Pics x

Oh you look gorgeous! Funnily enough, I am starting out with teeth which are similar in layout/shape - bu actually much worse - than yours before you started treatment in '09 and I'm also 29! So it's a bit like I'm going through your journey three years after you! I just had my braces on two days ag...

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

Thanks! They seem to have settled down a bit now - I've taken some Naproxen today for the aching feeling but it's definitely better now than it was this morning. Incidentally, I wouldn't recommend eating pizza crust on your first day - anything tough is...tough to chew and painful! Not "kill me now"...

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

Wow Jay they are Soooooo Clear. Congrats on starting your journey, you will be amazed how fast they move!!! Elle They are the "Inspire Ice" ones - I asked at my appointment because I figured people would want to know! So I guess they're meant to be the clearest ones or something? My ortho doesn't s...

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

Okay, I can feel them this morning! My teeth are a little wobbly and my bite doesn't go together properly any more! They're a little uncomfortable but nothing hell raising, by any means. So there we are! I wonder what I'll be able to eat today...? :)

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

Well, it all went very smoothly - nothing odd to report, really. The entire process of putting braces on my top jaw took about an hour, tops. Here's what happened: 1) The dental assistant opened my mouth up and blasted my teeth with water. She started on my right rear side; there were two teeth at t...

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

24 hours left of being brace-free! Then it's braces on for two years or so! Today I have been struck down by some kind of godawful gastro-food-poisoning thing so hopefully it'll abate before tomorrow afternoon... Ugh!

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

Got my stitches out today - the dentist says they're healing nicely! While I was there I raised the fact that I thought my right rear bicuspid had a cavity in it - and it did! So he unexpectedly numbed me up and filled it. Now I can't move half my lip, which is...fun! Oh well - 2 days until brace da...

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

Right! With only 98.5 hours left until braces go on, we are off out to buy a Waterpik. Getting the Ultra plug in model (WP 100) because there's not much space in the bathroom and I've heard better reviews on it that on the cordless models. Oh, and we're getting the ingredients for Spanish rice too -...
