Re: How long did it take for your ortho to put brackets on "that one crooked tooth?"

Great to hear other people's experiences, it's reassuring. I just looked at your main thread Professor - your teeth really were similar to mine; there is hope for me then haha ! The wire I have behind my teeth is apparently called a "controlled arch". I can't find a lot of information about it onlin...

Re: How long did it take for your ortho to put brackets on "that one crooked tooth?"

I have many crooked teeth but one in particular has proved to be a challenge. When I got the braces on my ortho put a bracket on the tooth but she couldn't attach the archwire. She tied it to the wire with some elastic string. Two days later the bracket came off. I called and was told they would wai...

Re: My braces story at 24 yrs old!

Here is the progress at 2 months (only 1 month for the bottom). I can notice some slight movement though am impatient for more. One of the front brackets on the bottom teeth came off two days after it was put in.... it wasn't attached to the archwire in the first place so the ortho said we'll find a...

Re: My Official Straight-Teeth Journey to begin December 6, 2016

Hi there, I also was told that I wouldn't get a perfect result without surgery, but I will be over the moon just to have my overlapping teeth straightened. I was someone who used to be scared of a simple visit to the dentist and the thought of getting braces put on made me want to cry - honestly aft...

Re: My braces story at 24 yrs old!

My bottom teeth are really hurting today. The top teeth don't hurt at all, even after the wire change yesterday.
I can notice a small improvement in the top teeth.... I really want that other lateral incisor to come down... it's still a snaggle tooth :(

Re: Are ceramic brackets more irritating than metal?

I find that my ceramic brackets look larger than metal brackets I've seen on other people. They did feel very rough for the first week, but after that they felt 'comfortable', I haven't used wax since the first week.
