Re: Bikerchick85's Quest for a Perfect Smile *With Pics!*

Tops are looking awesome :thumbsup: The bottoms will catch up, don't worry :) And yay for quitting smoking! I quit about 8 years ago after my Dad had 2 heart attacks (smoking related) and had smoked for about 12 years or so. It was tough but the best thing I've ever done. You can do it :D

Re: When you just start to feel "over it"

I've hit freaking out mode. OMG I'm going to have to wear retainers for the rest.........of.............my............life. What if I get my braces off and I'm disappointed? What if my teeth move? Do I really have to have a bonded retainer on the back AND essix retainers? I think I'll hate the bonde...

Re: Wire over missing teeth

I have a tooth missing (needing an implant or something) and the pain never went away. My ortho put a little silicone tube around the wire between those 2 teeth and I haven't had a problem since :)

Re: Debraced! And a retainer question!

They look wonderful! Congratulations! I have a week between getting debraced and picking up my retainers, however in the meantime I will have permanent fixed retainers top and bottom. I'm worried about things moving too!

Re: Newbie with rubberbands= pain!!!

Elastics hurt me the entire time I wear them, it doesn't get any better, but some months I've had them, others not. Some adjustments are a lot of pain, others nothing much hurts and are a bit of a breeze in comparison. I think I noticed around month 3 or 4 that things were moving a little, but it pr...

Re: I'm going to get braces this year!

It's nice to see you're still enjoying the experience. I wish even the tiniest part of me had found it enjoyable :P I think my ortho will be glad to be rid of me! Bit of a bummer when they're on longer than they were meant to, mine were due off in January and I'm still in them. I do have a debrace d...

Re: anyone had experience with sandpapered teeth?

I had some done between my 2 front teeth to remove a black triangle of space. Didn't hurt, he didn't take very much at all and now my teeth slot together like they should.
