Re: BAD ABOUT WEARING ELASTICS!!

Thanks ya'll for the suggestions. I know my ortho gonna be a tad bit upset with me. :x . He can look and tell whether patients are following his orders.

Re: Tooth jewelry!

I absolutely LOVE my braces :-* and I rock those colored ligs and I've even got colored elastics. :jump: . Even though there is pain associated I know I'm going to miss them when they are removed.

Re: Adjustment & vertigo

Some times after an adjustment I get vertigo. The pull of wires/elastics makes it rough going but after about a day or two I'm good. It will pass.

Re: what's the purpose for.......

Yea I know I need to wear elastics all the time like ortho said. I truly don't want to wear braces over my time frame. So back in they go. Hey biker I thought you had your braces removed. Am I mistaken?

Re: Pain...ughh!!

I've had braces.for a year now and yes I get pain only after a wire change or lig.color change. Some times it doesn't bother me but this last time whoo-wee. I cried and I'm 51 years old. But just hang.in there it gets better after a few days. For me it has taken about a week before pain eased off.

Re: Avoiding Flossing

Time wise I've gotten faster. Molars are another problem. I try as best I can but trying to get cheeks out the way is a pain in the butt. Some times I just leave and try to rinse as best I can.

Re: Lig colours (colors)

I've been changing lig colors since I've been wearing braces. It was nice to know that elastics come in colors too so having a.little fun with them too.

Re: what's the purpose for.......

Thanks for the replies. Teeth are still tight, pain is easing off. Elastics feel like they are holding teeth together from falling out my mouth. Does anyone ever take a break from wearing them. I mean like a day or two just to get a little relief?
