Re: How much do you pay for your wax?

I noticed the price is the same for silicone or "regular" wax when I check on the web. I don't think I have tried the silicone ones yet as the only one my ortho gave me is the regular ortho wax and the ones I am able to buy is also the same.

Re: Swallowed spacers.. o.O

My spacers were put back in.. I have to wait as the banding process will take 30-45 mins and they only had a 15 min slot to put the spacers back in.. Guess I'll wait until the 16th...

Swallowed spacers.. o.O

It's been almost three weeks since I got spacers.. I guess the space got so big that two of the fell out while I was chewing... It's grossing me out to know that I have two plastic spacers floating around my GI tract.. Grosser still, it's been in my mouth for three weeks.. Imagine the things that's ...

Re: No pain since braces

The first time I had braces I experienced a lot of pain. I couldn't even eat chicken noodle soup. This time around I haven't experienced any pain. A little discomfort when eating but that's about it. I've seen ALOT of progress so far and no real pain. I am excited. My dentist always laughs and says...

Re: chichi is braced!

I was like that the whole time i had my braces, then this monday, my ortho told me that he needs to band the last four molars and slap some blue sp...

Re: Hidden tooth progress!

Hi everyone! I just passed the six month mark in braces, and am thrilled at the progress of how a hidden incisor has steadily made its way forward, and thought I should share my pictures in the interest of others in a similar situation! I have Damon Clear uppers and metal lowers. that's awesome!!!

Re: Anyone get braces without spacers first?

Just got braces a week ago, all brackets even on my molar which has a crown.. I wonder why they left my last molar a lone?? I just went for my first month "adjustment". Ortho put in some blue spacers between my last two molars for bands in 3 weeks.. I guess I was not lucky enough to avoid the space...
