Re: Previous orthodontic work - unhappy with facial appearan

Hello! I think I have replied to you on another forum as well, but I wanted to say you once again that your smile looks so beautiful. Many people here on the forum undergo major surgery to get a smile less perfect than yours, so I would say: be proud of your smile!!! And to me, your face doesn't loo...

Re: Am I really ready to get my braces off? please help !!

Yes, your teeth will look A LOT better when the braces are off. With braces on you see the imperfections in your teeth MUCH better than without the braces. When your braces are off, you will be surprised at how good your teeth actually look!

Re: I will get debraced soon....

Great news: I am debraced now!!! The debracing went well. It took almost an hour. It was a bit uncomfortable at times, but nothing really bad. My ortho also did some shaving at the end. But much more important: I am happy with my teeth now!!! My teeth look so much better without the braces and I thi...

Re: Ridingboots - EmBracing the Journey

Good luck to you, Ridingboots!! We are thinking of you! I am sure you will be doing well.

And I will confess a bad sin to you: I am also eating the sweets on your picture (along with lots of chocolate, peanuts, nuts and more forbidden food) with braces on.......

Re: anxious and scared for debracing.....

Thank you all so much for your kind and reassuring words! I hope you are all right and that I will be happy with my results. At least, I have made a HUGE improvement during the past 18 months in braces.
I am still very nervous, but determined that I will go in there on Thursday with confidence.

Re: Braces in next 2-3 weeks. Super anxious/nervous.

Congratulations with having braces now!!! I am very happy that it all went so well! The anticipation is much worse then getting them actually on. I think it is very brave of you that you got braces despite your anxiety. I cancelled my first appointment where I was supposed to get braces, so anxious ...

Re: is it much easier to close your lips after debracing?

Hello! Thanks for all your replies. I think I just have to see how my lips will close after debanding. And yes, I had some lip incompetence before braces, so I expect the same after braces. I am doing all kinds of lip exercises now to train the muscles of my lip, hopefully this works. And if not, I ...

Re: anxious and scared for debracing.....

Thank you for your kind messages, support and understanding. And it may be childish, but for me it is real anxiety and nervousness (probably triggered by my low self esteem).... But you are right, Beckyboo, I also had anxiety before getting them on. I even cancelled my first bracing appointment! And...

is it much easier to close your lips after debracing?

Hello! I will be debraced soon. I have ceramic braces. At the moment my lips don't close naturally, I always have to consciously close them, and I am worried that this will be the same after my braces are removed..... I was wondering, is it MUCH easier to close your lips after the braces are removed...

anxious and scared for debracing.....

I am going to get debraced on the 23th of October. I know I must be happy and excited, but at the moment I feel scared and anxious: are my teeth really good enough? Am I really ready to get debraced? Will I be happy with my new smile or will I always be bothered by my imperfections? Will I for alway...

Re: Sliding Genioplasty Reversal ?

Thanks for your message, Leon. I wish you the very best and hope for a good outcome for you.... Did you have problems with your bite as well for which you think you needed jaw surgery? Did you have lower or upper lip incompetence before? I have a narrow upper jaw and a bit recessed lower jaw, but no...
