Re: When does it get better?!

It gets better. After I was braced I toughened up about 2 weeks in. You may find that after adjustments and with teeth shifting it will happen. My suggestion as everyone else is: dental wax, dental wax and more dental wax :lol: it truly works. Best to you on your brace journey. Keep us posted. Keep ...

Re: Anyone have a permanent upper retainer? Opinions?

This is the question I am looking for an answer to. My debrace date is December 16, 2013. My ortho said I will have a permanent retainer on the bottom which is good because I have no missing teeth on the bottom. I think I should have a permanent retainer on top due to a missing tooth on top left in ...

I'm 51 And Have My Debrace Date YAY!!!

I'm truly excited. At my last ortho visit November 18, 2013 my Orthodontist said I've done so well and teeth "behaved" during my entire treatment that he moved my debrace date from February 2014 to December 16, 2013. This is the best Christmas present I've ever received. I don't know who is :jump: f...

Re: Opting for braces instead of Invisalign

Nauna28 This has been the best braces experience I've ever had. My 1st go round was age 12-18. Bands on each and every tooth and I expected the same on the 2nd go round. Thank goodness for ortho improvements over the years. You go for it. You will be so pleased and happy that you did. Lets hear it f...

I know I would forget. I have packages of elastics everywhere just to remember to put them on :lol: they are at my mom's house; in the glove boxes of my 3 vehicles; in each of my pocketbooks :lol: so I have no excuse not to wear them :lol:
