Re: Ladies: Do you wear lipstick?

Re: The start of my journey

I am eager to hear how your "activation" goes and what it's like--that's one part of standard impacted canine treatment that I've missed out on so far. :wink: I'll get there eventually, but not for a while! Glad to hear you are comfortable, too!

Braces at 28, all because of one tooth

Hi, folks! I'm about one month into my braces odyssey and am really glad to have found this forum! How did I end up here? Well... I've got an impacted upper right canine. My baby tooth never got loose or fell out, and the canine never came down. Thanks to some cosmetic bonding when I was 16, nobody ...

Re: IMPACTED CANINES CLUB

Hi, everyone! I'm in the club, I guess: I've got one impacted canine (upper right) and have had my braces for one month now. I'm 28 years old. I'm already over them and am struggling with my confidence so far, but I'm hopeful that my treatment won't take too long. I inherited a lone impacted canine ...
