Britt, I'm so very sorry to hear what you went through. The amount of extreme pain you reported certainly did not seem normal, and I'm glad you did what was right for you. It makes me feel badly, because your earlier pre-brace posts seemed to indicated how excited you were to get your braces. I hop...

mjbusch, just stopping by to say hello! I agree with MommaDucky -- you do have a beautiful smile, even pre-treatment! I'm glad your TMJD is less painful now; sounds like the approach is the right one. My daughter had TMJD as a teenager, and was prescribed a bite splint -- I'm not sure what the tech...

Just saying hello, Sarah!

And you're right about the canine -- it's really rounding into position! After shaping you won't be able to tell the difference from a lateral incisor.

Terrific progress!

Great things are improving, Runnamuck! You seem to be adjusting to the Nance button well. Like most orthodontic appliances, apparently you just have to get used to them (as if I know anything about the Nance :lol: )

Wow, too bad about the molar tube, Smiley , and that you have to rearrange your schedule. Sure is fun to have these sudden intrusions into our lives, isn't it :evil: Hopefully your trip to the ortho will be really quick and easy, though. Your friend P really has an interesting way of viewing her ora...

Hi Denise,

Thanks for the pics! Ah, so I finally know what the infamous "black triangles" are. Actually I think I may have a few very small ones myself!

I can't wait to be able to take a bite out of something as simple as a sandwich! How right you are, Jeni! Do you feel like your incisors are going to keep bending back when you bite down, kinda like a paper clip that you're putting too much stress on? But I definitely agree -- how fortunate we are ...
