Re: 2nd braces at age 30 - for bite and gums!

Hey, I can't give you any tips, but I just wanted to say thanks for the updates throughout your journey! I get braces on almost right when you get yours off!

Your teeth look great, hopefully you're happy with the end result!!

Re: Don't be shy....join in the discussion!

That’s good to know. I plan on getting my teeth professionally whitened after I get my braces off, but was concerned they might color differently while I had them on.

Re: First time - braces at 32

Looks like good progress! Glad you went for it! And it could be worse, I'm just getting started and I'm a few years older than you haha. You'll be sooo excited when you're all done!

Hi, now that you've had your braces off, have you noticed any color differences in the areas of your teeth that had the brackets on?

Re: Hello! Braces in mid to late fifties

I'd be cautiously about the 6 month braces as well. I've heard various things about the effectiveness of that treatment, whereas for full braces it generally been all the same.

Re: Smoked after jaw surgery what to do?

Smoking affects things at the cellular level, so it takes time for it to become a factor in healing. I'd start declining those invitations to smoke, but those two or three cigarettes won't be an issue.

Any updates with this? How'd it go with the new expander?

Sounds like awfully bad luck, sorry you had to go through this!
