Re: Midline off after 2 months of braces

Thanks for your comments guys! I'll definitely mention it to my ortho next time :D I'll just need to accept that it's going to get worse before it gets better

Re: Ceramic Braces Story @ 28

Thanks for your kind words guys. My ceramics don't stain actually. They are the Clarity™ ADVANCED Ceramic Brackets - 3M brackets. Good luck Blondecam! It's so exciting when the snaggletooth fixes. I just hope the midline can be fixed.. Before braces http://rs547.pbsrc.com/albums/hh469/istase2000/bef...

Midline off after 2 months of braces

Hi Everyone :D Had my braces for 2 months and I feel like the progress has been good. You can read my thread here if interested: http://www.archwired.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=51426 I'm a little concerned about my midline being quite off when it used to be aligned. Does anyone have similar expe...

Re: Ceramic Braces Story @ 28

Thanks everyone for your kind words and support! Just had my 2nd tightening and got upgraded to a thicker wire on the top. Been quite painful on the right side so can only chew on the left. I asked the ortho about the longer tooth and he gave me a complicated answer. In short, he said it's all "rela...

Re: Ceramic Braces Story @ 28

Hi everyone! It's been almost a month with braces (time has flown!)- and just had my first adjustment 2 days ago. Felt tight at first but not painful at all and eating normally :D Sort of getting used to the braces, but the sides of my mouth get better and then get irritated again with canker sores....

Re: Ceramic Braces Story @ 28

Looking great so far! Are you happy you went with clear? I go for bonding tomorrow and still haven't decided between clear and metal...lol. With clear, some people won't even realise you have braces until you tell them so that's a plus. I heard clear are more bulkier than metal though - check with ...

It got better and I could eat by the 6th day :) It looks like my teeth haven't moved much but they feel like they are moving Just had all 4 of my wisdom teeth taken out today under local anaesthetics - all came out smoothly and isn't really painful :D Feels strange getting rid of 4 goo...

Ceramic Braces Story @ 28

Hi Everyone! I'm new here and love the idea of this forum. I am very excited to share my progress with you all although I am only on Day 5! A little background - my teeth have always been pretty straight, there were a couple slightly rotated but the dentist told me not to be silly when I asked for b...

Re: How often do you smile since you got braces?

Smiling with my mouth closed does not work as braces look so bulky but everytime I laugh I tend to cover my mouth. It's only been 5 days so I'm still learning how to embrace them and smile as much as usual.
