Re: COVID19 - can't get my braces off for foreseeable future!

I've been reading posts on social media about people who are getting their orthodontic appointments postponed or canceled due to this crisis. Most jaw surgeries are being canceled, which is devastating to people who have been planning the surgery for months. I even read one post from a person who go...

INPUT NEEDED: New Message Board Ideas???

Hey guys, The new ArchWired site will launch before the end of this month. After it is done, I am considering also upgrading this message board. I'm aware that a lot of people seem to go to Facebook these days for forum-type advice. I'm not really keen on using Facebook as a medium for this sort of ...

Re: Metallic dental fillings : to change or not?

I changed the ones which were visible. I had fillings in all of my molars. Eventually I changed out the one that was not too visible. Now all of my filings are composite. Haven't had any trouble with them at all. Some dentists feel that the amalgam fillings should be avoided. Others think they are f...

Re: Recently debraced questions

You should tell your orthodontist how you feel. Perhaps he'll make a Hawley retainer for you instead, or re-make your clear retainers to cover all of your teeth. I wouldn't recommend going someplace else to get the retainers made.

Re: Hello & incoming inquiry

What does the orthodontist want to do for your child's treatment? It's very common to have interceptive treatment starting as young as age 7 to help prevent worse problems down the road. For example, my daughter had a crossbite. She was treated with a palate expander for about 6 months when she was ...

Re: Hello & incoming inquiry

You can include a photo after you become a full member, which takes about 10 posts to achieve (it's a variable number). When your name turns green, you have become a regular member. I don't suggest posting anything ridiculous or innocuous because those often get deleted by our moderators. It's done ...

Re: Weird staining pattern

Has your dental hygienist seen your teeth and the spots that you are describing? Could they be a buildup of tartar?

Re: New Braces at Age 66

Best of luck in your journey! I got braces in my early 40s. Now I'm 59 and happy every day that I fixed my teeth. I'm almost ready to launch a redesign of the main ArchWired wite (archwired.com). Take a look at the old site, because there's a lot of information there that you might find helpful. Mos...

Re: Can adolescent extraction/retraction orthodontics cause adult obstructive sleep apnea?

That's because he was spamming our board quite aggressively a number of years ago. We had to ban him and do that with the spam filters. Sorry for the confusion! Call him Mr. Mew and it won't be censored, LOL Anything that narrows the airway might cause sleep apnea. Aging and weight gain can also be ...

Re: ArchWired ReLaunch: Guest Bloggers Needed!

I'm bumping this topic. If you want to write an article or essay about your experience with Invisalign or other invisible aligners, I will be glad to publish it on the new site (which is set to launch before the end of the year). Just PM me or reply to this topic.
