Re: Ortho Not Being Truthful?

Of course you know you and your husband need to speak with him privately to get it sorted out. I don't know why he would say one thing and write another, but there might be an acceptable explanation. I'm not sure I am understanding the issue with the rectangular wire, but then I am not the most inf...

Re: What is your favorite brace food?

well for me- today all food has been a challenge. I just got my braces today- and so far no pain from the teeth, but these darn molar bulidups!!! OMG!! I now only have 2 teeth that touch, so I can't chew any food well... I think I am going to have a smoothie for breakfast tomorrow, and I will need ...

Re: What do you feel....

I am thinking... M cheeks are getting sore after talking all day! Thank goodness for wax for those pesky back brackets that don't have a wire connecting them! There is zero way that floss will fit between some of my teeth now that the brackets and wires are on- good thing I have a waterpik! Sounds ...

Re: Why do I put up with the pain?

Looking at some of the amazing success stories might help. But I doubt my teeth are going to look half that good. You can straighten a picket fence but if the boards are rough and worn it isn't going to look perfect. Unless you pay many more thousands to put veneers on them. Which of course would be...

Re: What do you feel....

Today I am thinking I sure hope I am making the correct decision in getting braces put on tomorrow morning. :Questions: I don't know your situation, but you probably are. It was a dream come true for me, one of the happiest days of my life. At least in the top ten of good things that have ever happ...

Re: Is your life on hold?

I'm sure they mean "social" life; they just aren't saying it. I would probably have a different outlook if I were younger and single.

Re: Introduction - I guess

I hope this is in the right spot. I'm really only posting this so my account doesn't get deleted; I signed up because I wanted to look at before and afters of situations similar to mine as well as gather more information before getting braces. I don't have braces yet though I do have a consultation...

Re: How to they change or correct your midline?

With elastics. My top and bottom one's don't meet up. I think we're trying to bring the top around to the left so I wear an elastic overnight only on the left hand side. Thanks Tobilei - seems dumb since my midlines were fine, and then because of braces they are now 'not fine'. Oh well, I suppose t...
