Re: And Then What?

I've been wondering kind of the same thing. I just had my first adjustment yesterday, just two weeks after getting only the bottoms put on, and already my two bottom front bottom teeth are uncrossed! Don't get me wrong, I'm NOT complaining :-* but I am trying to figure out if things move at this pac...

Re: Orthodontic work after moderate stroke.

You're awesome for getting through all that/ this, by the way. Good job! The hospital did some of the work, but you definitely did the rest.

Re: Orthodontic work after moderate stroke.

Do you have ever neurological symptoms like burning throat, ear pain, headaches, numb fingertips, or other? Did the stroke come out of nowhere? I'm glad someone was hestitant about the elastics. I get neurological symptoms from things like latex. Big time.

Re: First day in braces age 27

I just got mine on last Thursday, but only the bottom 6 so far. At first, the wire was pinching the inside of my mouth, but now it's not. I needed wax to get through a couple of days (I think the third and fourth day?), but now I'm okay without it.

Headaches more noticeable a week after getting braces

I am very excited to have braces, even though I'm only 6 brackets in so far. I can't stop looking at them. I love them! But my question is this: is it normal to start getting headaches about four or five days after the braces go on? It's like a have a constant slight pressure all over my head, inclu...

Re: Any instrumentalists?

I play the flute. I played the flute before I got braces the first time. Having braces greatly affected my sound. When the braces came off, my sound went clear. Then I got a new, better flute and that, combined with my new clear braces-less sound landed me first chair in the illustrious Cooke Junior...

Re: Confess your dental hygiene sins

Before, I was tempted into eating chocolates that are always provided in the room that I work in, but now I am having no trouble resisting. I don't want all that sugar getting around my braces!

Re: Ladies: Do you wear lipstick?

I just have six brackets on the front bottom teeth so far, but so far I am wearing bright fuschia lipstick to work. (Today is my first day back since getting the brackets applied) I expect to keep wearing fuschia and red even with all the rest of the brackets put on, which will be happening in two w...

Re: Happy Easter with braces!

Hi Everyone! It's the day after Easter now. I got my bottom front six braces on Thursday, and now my teeth don't come together to bite. For Easter. I ate soaked nuts put in a food processor with dates (came out nice and soft), with an apple put through a food processor on top. It was so good!

Re: Braced for Braces!! CAN'T WAIT- tomorrow is the day

I got them I got them!!! I have six clear brackets on the front bottom teeth so far, with "jelly blue" circles around them. I work in IT, so I figure I'm supposed to look "different". :-) I want to get different colors on the rest of the braces, which will be applied in two weeks. I get to have a mi...

Re: Braced for Braces!! CAN'T WAIT- tomorrow is the day

Thanks for the tip! That's interesting that the pain is from nerve inflammation rather than pressure. What causes the nerve inflammation?
