Re: Ugh. Going back for more.

Wow you are brave! I just got my braces off and... never again!!! I wonder if you could get a quick course of Invisalign for just the bottom?

Re: Underbite & crossbite correct w/Damon, IPR, Acceledent etc

:soremouth: Ow :-(( The pain! :yikes: BUT all of my braces are off and my new crown fits great! Too bad my jaw is freaking killing me (even with 2 Tylenol 3), but I have put it through a lot lately. As soon as she took the bottom braces off it felt like such a relief-- nothing poking, rubbing, stabb...

Re: Underbite & crossbite correct w/Damon, IPR, Acceledent etc

Only a few hours until I get my gold crown, and then get my bottom braces off! The powerchain has closed the spaces between my bottom teeth (that opened up when they had to cut my wire and take off the tiebacks), they all floss normally now. The only unknown is whether the crown will fit tightly eno...

Re: Underbite & crossbite correct w/Damon, IPR, Acceledent etc

Wow! I just read through your story and I'm so impressed and amazed at your fast progress. A bit over 1 year? WOW! Super excited for you! Do you think its the acceledent making the progress so quick? I think I would have gotten my braces off even sooner if it weren't for my gum graft! I probably wo...

Re: Life Behind Brackets

Your smile is gorgeous even with the braces on! They're going to look incredible with the braces off! I was looking at your before photo and I may have said this before but we had very similar pre-braces teeth, especially on top. Mine finally straightened out and yours have certainly straightened ou...

Re: Carriere, Lingual Arch, Ceramic Braces at 58

You have had quite an ordeal so far! I am inspired by your resilience. It's good to hear your root canal worked. I always hear horror stories but know the majority of people have good experiences but just don't talk about it! I got my first crown right at the tail end of having my braces and will fi...

Re: 4th wire change on Six Month Smiles - ouchie!

Yay that is great to hear!! I hope your teeth keep moving the way you want them too. I know how it feels to have crooked front teeth -- not good! And thanks to braces I know how straight front teeth feel -- awesome!! I've had a few brackets repositioned throughout my treatment, too, I think most peo...

Re: Underbite & crossbite correct w/Damon, IPR, Acceledent etc

Congratulations! Your teeth look amazing! Did they feel loose or funny when they first came off? What kind of retainer do you have and what is the plan and times you need to wear it? Fantastic results! My top teeth never felt weird at all and were only uncomfortable right when she was taking the br...

Re: Underbite & crossbite correct w/Damon, IPR, Acceledent etc

Thanks guys! Metallika, I'm going to whiten before bonding even though I think my teeth are already pretty white (amazingly! Any yellowing on there were just stains from the braces and came right off). I don't want extremely white teeth because I wouldn't want the maintenance hassle but a little whi...

Re: Underbite & crossbite correct w/Damon, IPR, Acceledent etc

Thanks guys!! I'm so happy with them. Worth the money and the pain!! Oh and I wanted to mention for people who have clear brackets that, at least in my case, removing the plastic brackets was NOT a horror show. The clear brackets only broke a little bit and were only a little harder to remove than t...

Re: Underbite & crossbite correct w/Damon, IPR, Acceledent etc

Top braces are gone!! Omg omg omg omg omg My front teeth look way better than I thought they would, but I'm still going to get them bonded so they're even. I've lived 25+ years with messed up front teeth, I want nice loooong, big front teeth now! They'll probably be the length of the bottom left cor...

Re: The Professor's Story of Braces at 40 (with pics)

That's crazy the tech couldn't get the power chain on all of the brackets! I hope your teeth don't move because of it.

Your teeth are looking great!

Re: Underbite & crossbite correct w/Damon, IPR, Acceledent etc

I had to go back in to the dentist today because the lab called them and said my tooth impression wasn't good enough. So the dentist had to take off the temporary crown and take another impression, then put the temporary back on. Sounds simple, right? At first I asked them if they could try to do it...
