Re: tonuge crib

till pondering, but most likely will try the spurs first, they seem to be the lesser of both evils. It is not my ortho's choice and doesn't think will work. So I am getting stuck with the tongue crib might as well try anything I can to see if I can avoid it. She did give the choice though. I will ma...

Re: tonuge crib

I sure will, hope it gets better, and soon I will be in the same boat.
dreading it of course but it is a necessary evil.

And as I said still pondering whether to get spurs or crib.

Re: tonuge crib

Let's hope it all goes well, on my case it is the other way around, my ortho wants the crib, I wanted to try something a little less conspicuous so she gave me the choice of spurs, however she is not totally convinced and said that if they don't work on goes the crib. She even mentioned a crib with ...

Re: tonuge crib

Good luck with it. I am getting one soon and I am dreading it. My ortho wants the tongue crib for me however she gave the option to get tongue spurs to try if it works although she would rather have me get the crib. How is it been a little first hand insight would be great. If I may ask your age? I ...

Re: Pushing teeth with tongue

Yes the tongue can move your teeth I am about to go on second round of braces because of that. Never was an issue before. The solutions are not very pleasant but I'd rather endure it than not being able to bite properly. For instant Right I can't bite a pizza well, I cannot cut it completely when bi...

Re: Average time a tongue guard needs to be worn

I know this was posted a while back. How long did you have it on? How was it? I don't have it yet but I will very soon. I have a choice of tongue spurs or a tongue crib, my orthos choice is the crib she said she was willing to try the spurs if I wanted to. She even mentioned her fallback which would...

Re: Rockin' the Braces Again at 32

Now that I have a better look at your tongue spurs, I wish I was getting those, mine will me a lot more aggressive. She basically explained that it would be a few sharp wires bent in a U shape and glued to the back of my teeth. Not looking looking forward to those neither the crib. But we'll see how...

Re: Rockin' the Braces Again at 32

Great progress, you seem to be doing ok.

I am pretty certain I will end up with the tongue crib, however at least in my book it makes me feel better to have tried everything before. LOL

Why don't you as for a crib to your ortho? in the end you are the boss.

I will keep you updated

Re: Braces again, tongue thrust. Crib or tongue spurs

Ok, I am choosing the spurs on a trial basis, but she will have a crib ready to install.

I will be traveling for work so I am delaying the start for about a month and a half I will keep you posted.

Ok, She said she didn't think it would work, she still wants to go ahead with the crib, however I am choosing the spurs on a trial basis, but she will have a crib ready to install.

Re: Rockin' the Braces Again at 32

I had read about it on my research, my ortho did not mention it but I might try talking to her about, she reluctantly gave me option of the spurs on a trial basis, she adamant that she wants to physically block my tongue or anything else, she even suggested as a last resort a tongue crib with the sp...

Re: Rockin' the Braces Again at 32

I have a choice tongue crib or spurs? What would you choose? Thanks Ooo, my knee-jerk reaction would be to recommend the tongue spurs, as I've heard that the crib is a lot harder to get used to (but the spurs were no picnic either at first). But I've noticed that after all the sores on my tongue ha...

Re: Rockin' the Braces Again at 32

You are probably right, but I still have a few more weeks before I have to make a decision, the crib is also my doctors first choice. But was willing to try spurs if I wanted to. Even worse she suggested half jokingly half honestly, that as a final option if all fails or does not progress as it shou...

Re: My appliance and Really bad habbit

It was kinda implied all along that I would get the tongue crib along with braces. As I have explained in more detail in a topic at least she is giving me the choice between tongue crib and tongue spurs. She still prefers the tongue crib. I have not decided yet. I am fidgety all the time, and after ...
