Re: Beckyboo in Braces

That is so awesome. Did you bring out the champagne? I miss whistling through my gap. I will have to learn to whistle the real way when these braces come off. I think that we are only a week or so apart in getting our braces. When do you think that yours will be off?

Re: Finally Got Them!

Adjustment Update: Woo hoo I don't need to wear elastics any more. I was just wearing them during the night, but it is one less thing to deal with. They changed both wires and the wire lacing on the top arch which includes the teeth that had the wire loops as well. Thank goodness I don't need those ...

Re: Afraid

I had two wisdom teeth out years ago and he broke my jaw, that was some serious pain. Braces are a walk in the park in comparison.

Re: Itchy gums!

I get itching in my gums after every adjustment. It drives me nuts. I usually have some pain too and take Ibuprofen, which helps tremendously.

Re: Question about archwires

They weren't able to engage my rotated tooth until iI was six months in braces. But when they finally did it was crazy, my tooth was practically straight by the time I got home.

Re: Finally Got Them!

I had another adjustment today and it was interesting to say the least. After removing my wires the technician proceeded to fashion a top wire. This wire has two loops in it, (he used a lighter to heat the memory wire) and as these loops close, the gaps between the upper right and left lateral incis...

Re: Beckyboo in Braces

Hi, they used metal ties on mine from day one and it closed really quickly. I did have the frenectomy about 2 weeks before braces, maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe this next month will do it for you.

Re: Beckyboo in Braces

Does wax help. If not can you bend it a bit so it's away from where it is poking you. Maybe you can call your ortho for advice. I hope that you are able to sort it out. I have some needle nose pliers that are used for jewelry making that I have used before. Dipped them in alcohol to make sure they a...

You can see a huge difference. Now that is what I call progress. Your teeth are looking great and your space is tiny. Going going gone! :D
