Re: People with a large midline diastema...question

I've been told I shouldn't close mine. But it's HUGE! 5-6 mm. Pfft. Plus, my dad had a 2mm or so gap at age 20 ish. Now, at 57, it's like 6-7 mm. No thank you! Sometimes, I think people, even those that love you, aren't comfortable with seeing you change. Even if the change is for the better. I cann...

Re: Nervous about two spacers tomorrow - still not wired

It doesn't hurt, per se, but it's an odd feeling. I didn't sleep terribly well last night either.

Re: Cost?

I'm in the US.

Mine are $5045 including X-rays and retainers. I put 10% down and am paying $189 for 24 months.

I needed no other dental work to start but will probably get the frenum (??) surgery after and perm retainer on upper teeth ($375).

Re: Hello Everyone

Hi Kenny!

I think you posted on my intro. Looks like we'll be starting around the same time with the same plan of ceramic/metal and treatment length. I'll be following your journey! Good luck :)

Re: Nervous about two spacers tomorrow - still not wired

I just got back from my ortho appointment to get spacers. Easy breezy! I did take an Aleve (naproxen sodium) about half hour before my appointment. There was only a little pain getting one put in that was way back. She ended up having to floss it into place then pull the floss out and that was very ...

Hello!

Hi everyone! I wanted to get my first post done and figured I could do a quick intro. I first got braces at about age 19 and ended up getting them taken off early while pregnant with my son. I'm going back in! I'm almost 34, married with 5 kids, (2 "at-home" kids and 3 "step"kids) and I'm a chemist....
