Re: I feel like ripping them off

What you are going thru right now is very normal! The beginning adjustment takes a little time to get thru but soon and you will totally forget you have braces on your teeth. Give it time. Relax and think of the end result! Good luck!

Re: Seriously, no one notices!!!!

Congratulations on getting your braces off! I have heard the same comments on this forum that nobody notices your teeth when the braces come off. I am expecting the same response from friends and family. Lol....

Re: One of my O-rings/ligature elastics slipped off one end

Call your ortho immediately. I had a power chain slip off one tooth and thought nothing of it until the tooth started moving backwards because it was not properly engaged with the wire.

It set me back a month.

Re: 57 and braces again

Hi Uptown girl, glad to hear from you. I agree that no extractions was the way to go. I was told I would have a slight over jet if I didn't do any extractions. It is turning out just fine. I have been wearing elastics for 6 months now and they have really made a big difference. I was wearing a class...

Re: 57 and braces again

The end is in sight! Yay! After a slight set back (one tooth jumped out of the power chain due to a clear lace that was placed under the chain to help close up a stubborn space) my orthodontist has now given me a time frame for debonding. In 6 weeks if everything continues to look good they will tak...

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

Congratulations! You must be so excited! I can't wait to see your new look! I am right behind you in progress. I was told yesterday that on my next appointment if everything looks good we will do impressions. Then debonding 6 weeks after that. I think that is the plan but 6 weeks after impressions s...

Re: Finally getting the smile I want at 38 years old!

Congrats on taking the plunge. My "wake-up" moment was sort of similar to yours.

Grand baby came along and all the photos of us were up close and in your face type photos. Yikes!!

Good luck on your journey!

Re: Braces at 53

Hi and welcome to the club. My story is that I had braces when I was younger but did not wear the retainer and my teeth shifted over the years. My wake up call to how bad my teeth shifted was when I became a grandmother and everyone was taking close up photos of me and my beautiful granddaughter. Yi...

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

Hang in there Professor. I can understand your disappointment. Soon, very soon!

I am wondering if they just start teasing us at the end of our treatment with talk about debracing before we are really at that point. Just a thought....

Re: 57 and braces again

It seems like my first photos have been deleted. I guess it was because I am no longer using that web site to upload pics. Anyway, I thought I would share how my teeth looked pre-braces and when the braces first went on. http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f342/Mtm57/Mobile%20Uploads/143598ef-23d8-413...
