Re: Braces rubbing and sore question

I've noticed that it's pretty random which teeth are sore / where they're rubbing against your gums. I can be okay for about 2 weeks then all of a sudden there's one spot that is killing me. Your teeth and bite are constantly moving around, it's pretty normal :)

Re: Fastbraces and night time elastics

Not wearing your elastics can greatly increase the time you're in the braces - I would start wearing them again ASAP

Re: Waterpik yes or no?

I definitely recommend the waterpik BUT I would NOT use it as a replacement to flossing.

Re: bracket problem

I would call your ortho and let them know about it. It might be super important to get it reattached completely- it's probably not doing much if it's not attached correctly.

Re: Wisdom teeth and braces?

I got my wisdom teeth out in august then my braces in sept. I would highly recommend getting them out before braces. I couldnt imagine dealing with both at the same time.

Re: Ceramic braces too bulky?

This is the reason I personally went with all metal. I don't regret it at all, either.

Re: Your before, during, after, now pictures please.

In my experience, the actual moving seems to one of the faster parts. But your teeth need time to stabilize/get used to their new positions.

Re: White Lines above and below Bonded Retainer on Bottom Te

Yes, I don't brush the back of my bottom teeth where the bonded retainer is cause I'm scared it will come off but I just got my braces off August 15 and didn't get the bonded retainer on till the following Monday.

Re: My Story - 28/F - Metal Braces

1 week update - Most of the soreness/pain is gone. When I wake up in the morning, I feel a lot more pressure on my teeth but it seems to go away within 30 mins or so. I still can't really bite into things with my front teeth so I pretty much have been eating everything with knife / fork. Chewing wit...
