Re: Not much soreness after adjustment?

I had real, noticeable discomfort/pain about 3 times in the 22 months I've been braced. Just enjoy it! :lol:

Re: "But your teeth are fine! Why waste money?"

Yeah. I know people mean well but...it's annoying. I didn't wake up and decide to get braces today.

Re: Permanent Retainers vs. Essix Retainers

Your ortho will let you know what you need. I have a bonded retainer in my top six teeth and will have essix for top and bottom.

Re: Gappy

I had a 5mm gap that closed completely, no frenectomy needed. So you might,but you might not. Don't worry about it too much.

If you haven't signed a contract, it's not too late. All of the chairs in one room is very common.

Re: Less than perfect results

Exactly what jem said. We tend to critique ourselves in a way that we don't critique other people. While you are thinking person A has "perfect teeth" they are thinking you have perfect hair/nose/body type/height/etc. Besides, very few people have "perfect" teeth. Your new smile will be unique to YO...

Re: Pain during adjustments

I only had a few real moments of pain over my treatment; spacers, my first powerchain, the reverse curve archwire and my first double powerchain (one on the brackets, then the wire, then another powerchain).

Otherwise it was fairly smooth sailing.
