Re: Vegans with braces?

Here! (raises hand) :jump: Staying MOSTLY vegan thanks to my food processor & my newly purchased Nutri-Bullet. Also, I've reverted to being a non-raw vegan. Cooked vegetables are so much more tooth-friendly! The reason I say "MOSTLY vegan" is I've gone to eating fish about once per week because when...

Re: Whats the point if I'm going to end up in drenchers anyw

I don't live in denial that DNA exists, but I like to feel more in control than out of control, so I have been researching what people can do to increase their odds of reducing dental decay. It turns out there are quite a few things people can do to better their odds of fending off decay. One of the...

Re: More Self concious Now Then Before Braces

Maybe I would have got a better husband. Kidding! He doesn't read this anyway. Only a crazy person would. hahahaha :lol: :lol: :lol: This is great :D Braces totally make me feel like it's time to go man-shopping! I feel like all this bling ups my points on the open market. And go, Dan, go! I hope s...

Re: What color ligs do you have on your ceramic braces?

Right now I have clears on. I've had them for just under two weeks, and already I think they're already discolored. They looked great for about a week. I made a concerted effort not to discolor them, but they're not as bright clear as they were at first, and now my mouth looks blahhhhh My diet is ve...

Before my nose job, people said the same thing. I don't want a character nose. I don't want character teeth. I just want to BE a character :lol: :lol:

My heart goes out to your family. That sounds awful. I have to say, though, I do like the term "drenchers" :BigGrin: For sure you can turn this around for you and your susequent generations (should you choose to reproduce, assuming you've not already). Staying on top of things is the whole trick to ...

Re: The waiting room

I have noticed the parents in the waiting room, slumped in their chair, and always feel bad for them that they're not personally getting anything out of the visit. Their kid is progressing with their teeth, I'm there to progress with my teeth, but all they get is a big time suck to go along with the...

Dude...seriously?? Losing teeth by age 50??? :lol: I'm assuming you were kidding. My parents are in their seventies with all their teeth, and those teeth aren't going anywhere. My grandpa lived to 95 with all his teeth. I'm assuming you take care of your teeth, since you took the trouble of getting ...

Re: some people just don't understand...

Just last week, a woman flew into town for work. She had not seen me in braces yet, so when she saw them she was surprised. She yelled out, for everyone in the room I work in to hear, "BRACES??? Are you trying to be young again???" THANKS :wink: What I heard: 1. You're old (-er than anyone who shoul...

Re: Are women more likely to notice braces than men?

Yeah, Dan! I'll discuss my braces with anyone any day! I wish more people would strike up conversations about them. Why do people think there is anything else that merits discussion?? :-*

Re: Braceface Greeting Etiquette

EricRoyalOak, are you of the Michigan variety? Which Home Depot were you at? I should go there & strike up the same conversation & the guy will think he's in the Twilight Zone (assuming he knows what that is or that the show ever existed, given his age). Did you recruit the compadre to the board? :r...

Re: 48 hours to go....

I'm nervous for you. I am not sure if you're male or female, so I'll use a nose job in this analogy instead of the one I had actually thought of first. The way I see it is this: if we had gotten a cosmetic procedure (e.g. a nose job) it would be all over in one shot. We go under the anesthesia looki...

Re: 48 hours to go....

Klobird, how did it go?? I totally get what you meant about being scared they won't be good enough. I feel like I leave mine on forever, they'll always be improving, but there must be a critical mass point beyond which not much improvement can happen, right? :D (That's the part where I'm trying to k...

Re: Wax...

At my orthodontist, they taught me to roll it between my fingers first for a while to warm it up. They said to press it into a ball, and keep molding it with my fingers into a warm ball, and then press it onto the bracket. It works for me. I don't need to dry anything off. I use two fingers to press...
