Hmm well I have pretty small teeth so I don't know if that makes a difference. Really that should make it harder cos the brackets are almost as big as some of my teeth like my premolars. I've got clear ceramic self ligating brackets....I think I've just adapted quickly focusing on using more lips an...

It's not really been much different for me at all. Open mouth and everything. :)

Great restaurant dishes to order when you have braces: Risotto Small pasta - not long like spaghetti or fetuccini - or you could cut it up real small. Tender tender juicy steak - if its really good quality then cutting it up into tiny pieces will allow you to savour the yummy flavours longer. Avoid ...

They don't hurt so much as be annoying - that feeling of always having something BIG stuck in your teeth is frustrating. And I don't know if yours do - but when I had mine on, whenever I would bite they would touch together instead of my actual teeth. If they do end up hurting heaps it will probably...

That sounds pretty serious to me. I'd be heading to the dentist straight away and then the ortho depending on what the dentist says.

I've always got a supply of sugar free extra strong mints on me (Eclipse in Peppermint) - those, combined with brushing three times daily means no bad breath!

And drink lots of water too!

Yeh I might give the ortho a call on Monday then. :-) I didn't ask about the bottoms but Dr Schwartz said I should have that top tooth bracketed at my next adjustment or the one after. From the way he said it I gathered that first he is creating space for the bottom brackets and then moving the top ...

I've only once had a dream about my braces and that was before I got them on.

I was so excited about them that I dreamt I had them on already. But they were on both rows and right now I've only got the top ones on.

Almost two months in braces now and I haven't had a single dream about them.

I've never been a snacker but I've made an effort to eat smaller portions and take smaller bites since I've had my braces on.

Much more careful about how I eat and chew now. Not sure if I've lost any kilos cos I don't tend to weigh myself. Always hovered around the 48 - 52 mark though.
