Re: Dom's Story

Yay Dom! Nice braces! :) My extractions were a little difficult because the roots were curved but the teeth did eventually come out. The Novocaine was wearing off majorly by the time I left the office so I was in quite unbearable pain by the time I collected my painkiller prescription. Thank God for...

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

In case anyone is interested, this is what I look like now with the teeth extracted. I was worried about this but it turns out you can't even notice from the front and notice from the side only when I smile broadly. :mrgreen: http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr346/JayBowyer/Teeth%20progress/IMG-20...

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

Thanks Lau! I will post picture of my post-teeth-out smile later on as well, because it's really not as noticeable as I thought it would be. At first my boyfriend couldn't even notice, particularly from the front!

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

Right. SO here is my extraction story. I arrived at 9.30am - way in advance of my appointment but I was in that part of town so figured I should probably just sit and read "Good Housekeeping" instead of trying to get anything done. Joked around with the staff in the dentist's office because they are...

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

Right - they're out. Owwww. I will describe the process a little more once the Vicodin kicks in. I had very long roots and it wasn't simple - but it wasn't awful either. I do have some significant pain now though, most likely from all the wrangling he had to do to extract the teeth! But there we go....

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

I am nervous. In three hours I won't have my bicuspids any more. Oh my goodness. I've never had an adult tooth pulled. Argh! Freaking out!

Oh well, it's all for a good cause...I hope!

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

Thank you! Today is my last day ever with my two first top premolars...argh! I am determined to send them off well, so I am indulging in a number of different "bad for teeth" foods today in the knowledge that I'll probably be sucking Ensure tomorrow...boo! Still, it's exciting to get started. Thursd...

Re: Maeby Getting Braces

Thankfully I am self employed so the time off work won't be an issue as I get to decide my own hours - which can be very strange indeed... But I am having teeth extracted on Wednesday (eep!) and braces fitted on March 8th, 8 days later! So we'll be on the same braces timeline! My canines are out but...

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

Okay - tooth extractions are scheduled for 9.50am next Wednesday the 29th of February! Braces are going on on the 8th of March at 1pm! This is really happening! Wow - I'm kind of excited now! Maybe not so much about the week in between the extractions and the braces, but overall I am feeling good ab...

Thank you! I am awaiting a call from my dentist to schedule the extractions, which will be done next week with Novocaine. I am super nervous...

Re: Jay's Braces Journey...

Right - pictures as promised! Hope there are enough angles here to let you all know what I'm dealing with... A few issues. My bite is so bad it's like I don't have a bit at all. None of my teeth fit together properly at all, from front to back! It'll be weird to have teeth that actually go together ...
