Re: Sad after my first consultation...

I can relate to how you feel. I felt sad after my last dentist appointment where my dentist said I need to get braces. I didn't think my teeth were that bad before.

Did you get your braces on yet?

Re: What freebies did you get from your dentist?

The freebies I got from my last dentist appointment were floss, toothpaste, a toothbrush, and a referral to the orthodontist.

Re: Starting Braces Journey at 32 - 7/9/14

Why didn't anyone tell me flossing would hurt so much? The thinnest piece of string can cause mouth torture http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-sad008.gif ! I used to like flossing, but now, not so much. Ugh, I'll bet flossing is a nightmare with braces. I don't even like flossing without bra...

Re: A Whole New World

Your story of cruel dentists growing up sounds like my story. Glad to see you were able to conquer your phobia. Pics look great!

Re: Extractions!

Lucky me I never got my wisdom teeth! But the thought of needing premolars extracted scares me.

Re: Braced Tomorrow Morning!

I like the clear brackets! I might need to get those myself if/when I get braced.

Extractions?

Hi everyone. I'm new here and I might be getting braces soon. I've been reading some posts and I see people talking about getting teeth extracted.

Might be getting braces

I was so worried that after ten years I'd have lots of cavities. Lucky me I didn't have a single one! But as soon as the dentist came to look at my teeth sh...
