Also you won't be able to see a surgeon without a referral

Re: Jaw surgey without braces?

You think that a NZ surgeon is incapable of doing jaw surgey on that case? You think they aren't trained to the same degree? Less experience, less demand, less competition, less incentive to be a better surgeon. And nah, haven't booked in yet, still wanna work out who I want to see and in what orde...

Yeah that's not going to cut it for me lol.
Good luck. In the short term your options are limited and you could be getting $ back because I honestly don't think you will get much back from the dentist. What has the dentist said?

Re: Ortho does not use clear ligs.

I don't think mine does either... but some months I have really clean looking brackets. Once I even went back thinking the ligs had broken of! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Don't worry about the staining cause I don't think it makes the teeth any less noticeable.

Re: Ortho does not use clear ligs.

My ortho said I wouldn't be happy with any other color ligs and told me if they did stain just to call the office and they'd change them out. Pretty presumptuous of your ortho to assume you wouldn't want to have any other color but clear. Some people like to have fun with the colors. House colors, ...

Re: how long will i hurt for

Boil chicken or slow cook meat in sauce. Cut up the meat really small with scissors and suck the food before chewing/swallowing.

I swear by clove oil. My pain wasn't as bad as yours, so not sure on duration. Take ibuprofen and aspirin together.

Re: Build up on molars ... extremely painful

You aren't in 10/10, so calm down. Just checking you have taken pain killers and regularly? They can take a couple of pills to work. I recommend Clove Oil as well. Pop some on a cotton bud, put on gums/area, don't taste it cause it's awful but pain goes very fast in my experience. Google it. If you ...

You need to get pain killers. There is no other way to get rid of it.

Re: Please tell me extractions aren't that bad

Thank you - all your replied make me feel a lot better :) Keep telling myself this tome tomorrow it will be done (and a gummy crone I will be LOL!). The ortho did say she could take out the 2 bicuspids but preferred the single incisor (which sounds much better to be too), disadvantage is that the m...

Re: oldest one here at 63?

I have never had the wire pop out again so I think that wire is loose.

Try YouTube to find how to put the wire back in, but I guess it can be thread in? Is there a Damon section on this forum? Or use nail clippers and put the wire in, and cut.
