Re: My beloved diastema - aka I love my gap tooth!

Glad my gap is gone. Unfortunately the older I got the wider it got. I was becoming more embarrassed, self conscious and smiling less. I am very happy it has gone.

Re: What is SEATING?

I googled "seating orthodontic" and came upon a PDF from an orthodontist. It's rather long, but maybe it's talking about what you are? mcnamara.s3.amazonaws.com/EndTreatment.pdf‎ Do let us know what this seating is, when it happens to you. Thank you for the pdf link. Did you see that elastic config...

Re: What is SEATING?

What is SEATING?

During my last adjustment my orthodontist was discussing my next adjustment with the technician. He stated that he wanted me to have class 2 elastics and SEATING . The tech glanced at him with a look of disbelief/shock/horror difficult to say which and questioned SEATING ? The ortho confirmed yes SE...

Re: Running out of food choices

I have been able to eat anything. At first I just cut up food very small even sandwiches and chewed with molars. It does get a bit tender after an adjustment for a couple of days. I take Advil and manage anything from steaks to apples sliced of course dipped in caramel...yummy.

Re: Beckyboo in Braces

Hi beckyboo I had a phrenectomy prior to having braces, so I dont have any excess gum in my gap. I haven't had any pain or inflammation. Maybe Advil, ice , cold drinks, salt water rinses and Oracle may help. I hope it improves for you soon. It will probably settle down now its closed up.
