PROLOGUE CONTINUED: THE LAST STRETCH UNTIL BRACE DAY I just got back from the orthodontist. They took another set of molds that my ortho will use to figure out the placement of my brackets. Spoke with my doctor for a bit. She let me know that my impacted canine isn't in a very good position and she...

Thanks guys! I'm glad to hear that it's not anything terribly unusual. I wasn't so much afraid of any pain but more like .. I was wondering if it was appropriate to shave my teeth. I wasn't sure if that was a bad thing or not.

HURRAH! I thought I was going to owe a little bit on my taxes but it turns out that I had a few deductions that I didn't realize I qualified for. SO! I am getting money back which means that I have been able to move up my brace date. I'm now going in on May 25th for my molds and then, on May 8th, I ...

Interproximal Reduction?

Does anyone have any experience with this? My orthodontist said that it will be part of my treatment plan. Is this a red flag or is this something prtty typical and safe?

This is section is more like people's ongoing stories of their experiences with braces (think of each thread like a little blog). You'd probably have better luck getting your question answered if you post it in Metal Mouth Forum which is more of a general Q-and-A area.[/url]

When I had my wisdom teeth out, I drank a lot of Ensure Plus chocolate drinks. They don't taste too bad and they have all sorts of nutrients.

Thanks! The kitty is feeling better even though he still has a way to go. I'm supposed to keep him from jumping for 10 - 14 days. How do you keep a cat from jumping?! http://www.ninae.com/photos/sanket/banky_bowlingball.jpg I am very, very, very excited about my brace date. I was pretty sure I was g...

PROLOGUE CONTINUED: I HAVE A BRACE DATE! I had my fancy 3D x-rays a little over two weeks ago and I had my phone appointment with the treatment coordinator this morning. She went over what was needed: I will have Damon brackets (Damon 3s on the top front six teeth). I will NOT need spacers (hurrah!...

this is kindda wierd, I went for my consoltation today and they pretty much wasn't able to tell me anything. They want me 1st to go to a place to take a scan of my teeth, which is logical to me because they probably want to see what it looks like. But here's the catch, the scan cost 370 dollars. Th...

Oh Miss Smiley. Smiley, Smiley, Smiley. You have NO idea! I'll stand in front of the mirror, baring my teeth while I try to imagine what I will look like when it is all over and done with. I have considered Photoshopping some braces onto a picture of my teeth just so I'll have an idea what to expect...

At least you have a brace day! I think I could handle the waiting a little bit better if I had an end in sight! There are still so many things we need to figure out before we can set a date (what to do with the canine, when to take out my bottom wisdom teeth, do i need jaw surgery and then, on my en...

PROLOGUE CONTINUED: X-RAY AND PHOTOS FROM CONSULTATION I discovered today that I could log into my orthodontist's website and look at the x-ray and pictures they took on my first visit. I figured I would add them here as they are better 'before' pictures than I could take. Plus, the x-ray is REALLY...

Jaw Problems? Have them?

So, this is what my bite is like normally: http://www.ninae.com/photos/teeth/jaw_01.jpg As you can see, I have a deep bite but my midline (is that what it is called?) lines up just fine. However, my jaw clicks when I open my mouth wide and sometimes if I open it too wide (like when I yawn!), my jaw ...
