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

Tomorrow my orthodontist will be affixing my bottom "social six" in clear brackets. My stomach flutters whenever I think about it. I can't believe it's finally happening. I don't know why I didn't do this sooner. It seems so exciting. I keep feeling like this is my last day on Earth to eat food. I a...

Getting allergy tested for braces...so excited!!!

I don't know if there is anyone else on this forum (or ever will be) who are allergic to seemingly everything. I feel sick if I get anywhere near a balloon, so latex is a killer for me amongst many other things. When I had braces as a kid, my face was constantly swollen, and my eyes would puff shut ...

Is Decalcification a Reason not to get Braces?

I am going to be getting braces in a few weeks, and just learned about the risk of decalcifactions. I plan to take VERY good care of my teeth, and will do everything in my power to not get these. My question is, will this be enough? Are decalcifications completely under our control to avoid, or is s...

Re: Do braces bring on canker sores?

Thank you both for your feedback. I guess I don't know if I ever had actual canker sores or just shredded mouth walls from my braces :-) I just remember some pain/irritation until it healed. I was so much less worried about things back then!

Good to hear I don't have to say goodbye to spinach.

Re: Does anyone actually have traditional metal braces anymo

I think you are so lucky! I love the look of metal braces top and bottom. They are tiny and cute, and look awesome with colored ligatures. I wish I could do the traditional metal mouth, but allergies to metals relegate me to ceramic, and even that's iffy. We're going to allergy test me to the bracke...

Do braces bring on canker sores?

I'm new here, and about to get braces for a second time in this lifetime. I can't wait!! Colors, colors, colors! But the thing I'm not excited about is this "canker sore" deal. I think I remember getting ouchies on the insides of my mouth in my first orthdontic adventure, but I know I haven't had an...
