Re: Mumma foccacia! OWWWWWWW!!!

Generally only a few days. Mine got sore when I first got mine. I think the worst of it was because it made my back teeth hurt so much and my whole jaw. But 3 or 4 days in I'm pretty sure it had eased a lot. Hang in there! They're doing good things!

Re: Elastics, OMG OUCH!

I can imagine! I sounded rather like a sailor for a good 5 minutes after I snapped mine on my face!

Re: Damon braces brackets popping off

It's common for brackets not to stick to crowns unfortunately. I have a back molar that has a different kind of enamel to the others and had one that popped off there. He roughed it up a bit as the above poster mentioned and used a massive amount of adhesive and I haven't had a problem since. It's m...

Re: ewww

I usually get smoke coloured ligs and love them. They look clear but don't stain. This time round I needed a closed chain powerchain and it only came in clear. I've been really careful and I'm only 1 week in and already things are a charming shade of orange towards the back. I've brushed with peroxi...

Re: What do you feel....

My jaw feels stiff due to one single elastic kind of pulling the top in one direction while the bottom stays where it is. One sore tooth at the top where the elastic hooks on and and creates pressure. Sore cheeks at the top from the closed chains running up the back 4 teeth on each side. 3 (yes 3!!...

Re: Sunshiney Saga

Hope you enjoyed your time at the beach :) And I don't know that the goofy smiling feeling ever goes away completely. You always have to either hide your braces with your lips or stretch them right around the edges so you generally end up with a really huge smile. I feel like I smile funny now too, ...

Re: Preparing to get Braces! - almost 30.

Ugh, I hate those days (((hugs))). Hope things are looking a little brighter tomorrow! And I understand about hating ligs. I've not been adventurous at all but when I chose the gray one's they looked so dark and I just hated them. My daughters done the same thing every time she gets bright colours (...

Re: 4 extractions and a little Bracey!

Yay for being braced :mrgreen: They look great! And we all have those "OMG I want to die" and "what the heck was I thinking" moments!! They do pass. And try not to worry about bending wires or breaking brackets. It's pretty impossible to do with a toothbrush :)
