Re: My feet are getting cold

I understand why you have cold feet. I have cold feet too. Maybe it won't be as bad since you're just starting with the bottom braces? Bottom teeth are less noticeable than the top. You'll be fine.

Re: Braces and low carb diet

As I don't have my braces on yet and I just have info from this message board, it sounds like after a few days of getting braces on they'll stop hurting and you'll be able to eat whatever you normally eat. They'll only hurt again when you get them adjusted. Maybe you could work it out so the days wh...

Re: Alex needs braces

The first ortho said that invisalign is an option for me. I'll see what other orthos say. I'm going to call and schedule more appointments.

Re: Alex needs braces

Thanks SoIWasLike72! I think I'll make a couple more appointments with other orthos today. And I'd like invisalign, but it's the cost and extra time that's worrying me. I do also like the look of the clear ceramic braces in the pics I've seen on the message board.

In other news, I plan on devouring a big bowl of popcorn tonight. I'll miss having popcorn.

Re: Alex needs braces

Thanks ChiChi! Glad to meet another person who got braces at 27! I liked the ortho I saw today. She was nice and understood my phobia. I'll give it a couple days before I decide whether to get a second opinion or to call and have my records appointment. They wanted to do the records today but I opte...

Re: Has anybody ever asked to keep their braces on for longe

Most of my friends said their doctor always delayed the removal date because they're perfectionist, I even have a friend who had his braces on for 5 years, when he was only supposed to have them for 3 years... I had my first ortho appointment today and my ortho said I'll need braces for 14 to 17 mo...

Re: Who knew these tiny blue spacers could hurt so much....

I made the mistake of watching a youtube clip of getting spacers. They look horrible.

Re: Who knew these tiny blue spacers could hurt so much....

I'm reading all these horror stories of spacers and I need to ask, does everyone who gets braces need spacers? I just had my first ortho exam this morning so I'm just beginning.
