Re: Anyone else really enjoying the braces experience?

I am the same way! It's surprising to actually enjoy being in braces. It's just kinda neat! I still find myself thinking that I'm still kinda surprised I did it and that I'm kinda proud of myself for doing it!

Re: Sharp nerve pain after adjustment - Temporary?

I had a thing with one of my teeth once too. I'm not sure if it was the same you are having. Mine felt more like a tooth cramp.

Re: Braces with fillings and missing teeth

I have one of the most giant fillings known to man on a molar and I have a bracket glued on. No problems yet, 14 months in!

Re: Last Archwire But 10 Months Remain?

I bet you'll just stay in the same wire. I guess I'm not even sure if I'm on the biggest wire, but I haven't gotten a wire changed for a long time!

Re: How tight should your arches be?

Yeah I definitely need to take that picture in. I always have a hard time trying to point out the tooth and talk at the same time! I originally heard 16-18 months (July-September)... Then I also heard 18-21 months (September-December). And he just said the other day that they were expected to be off...

"Armchair Orthodontist" me!

Armchair Orthodontist me please!! I've been explaining this weird angled tooth to my orthodontist for the past few months. I'm pretty sure it's the right front tooth (LEFT in the picture) but it matches up with the little tooth next to it. So what needs to be done to the tooth to make it right??? Sa...

Re: How tight should your arches be?

Ok that's a pretty hard angle to get! I guess my overjet looks smaller than yours... unless you have your teeth a little bit apart? But it still feels too big! I feel like my teeth should be closer. And see that horrible angle on that tooth? I can't figure out what's going on... It probably just nee...

Re: How tight should your arches be?

Yeah mine look pretty much like yours. Though, something is definitely off with one of my 2 front teeth. It sits crooked or something. He put a little bend in my wire to try to pull the corner of the tooth out and it felt sore but it doesn't look right still. (I guess it's only been like 5 days but ...

How tight should your arches be?

How tight together should your upper and lower arch be when you are all said and done? My teeth fit fairly tight before... then they had to move apart (got an overjet)... then they came back together again... then I had elastics to pull my bottom teeth back and now I have an overjet again. It seems ...

Who has gotten clear powerchains??

Who gets clear powerchains?? Anyone? I'm a bridesmaid in my sister's wedding and I want my braces to be as invisible as possible. I have clear brackets on top but a part of my door is metal and so you can still see the metal but it's just also right where the wire goes straight across. Anyhow, I've ...
