Re: New to Braces

I agree about the wax. Use it generously to avoid irritation from any bracket. My problems have been the brackets on the teeth in front of and behind extraction sites and the brackets on my front lower teeth....got my braces 7/29. So, I wax up before I go to work, I unwax to eat and wax back up for ...

Re: How did you tell people???

Today was my first day at work after being braced. My closest friend and co-worker did not even notice!!! Guess I have good lip control over and above these things. :D I finally couldn't stand it any longer and said "well, I'm braced for whatever comes along today. See? " One other co-worker noticed...

Re: Nana (51) is getting braces!

Yes, big bite problems. Any time I had doubts about doing this, before and after extractions, and while waiting for getting braces on, all I had to do was to look in the mirror for my answer to why I'm doing this. As we say at church every week, "another praise report" this morning. Good night's res...

Re: Nana (51) is getting braces!

Clairelouise: I went straight to the dollar store for things on my list. That was best thing for me, to just make myself go and be around other people. (To each his own, I'm sure). Isthistaken: goals are to correct big open bite, overbite and cross bite. I could get a fat pencil between my uppers an...

Re: Nana (51) is getting braces!

Well, as I reported to my husband and grown children, I didn't gag, swallow any of the equipment or cry, so I'm counting that as a victory! Getting the braces on took about an hour, including the cleaning instructions. Toughest part, for me, was keeping my cool when assistant rinsed stuff off my tee...

Nana (51) is getting braces!

Two call me mom and one calls me Nana. Tomorrow is my brace day. Great family vacation came to an end today so I'm nicely tired from the trip and expect to rest well. Truly I feel no great anxiety about tomorrow. I could feel vastly different 24hours from now. Stand by for an update sometime post-ap...

Re: On my way to a BIG SMILE! 37 years old

Lookin' good. Can't believe they did 4 extractions in one day AND put braces on! I had two pulled at a time and two weeks between. I guess different strokes for different folks, huh?
I'm counting down to 7/29 as my brace date and just hope for such visible results as yours! :D

Re: Water Pik instead of flossing?

If anyone has read the book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie", they can understand how a new WaterPik user might end up cleaning the bathroom! My ultra model sort of got away from me tonight and I got a good facial, the mirror got a good moisture treatment and a couple of other spots had a shower, too,...

Re: 3 year sentence

This topic is a little dated but I'm wondering if there are others -- currently -- in the 3year club? My brace date is 7/29 and treatment time is expected to be 36 months. When I think about how quickly the months tick by (it is July already, for goodness sake), I want to think the time will pass qu...
