Your lower gaps seem to be closing nicely, if only you could make the uppers speed up! How are things going?

Well done Melissa for standing up to your old ortho, we're all paying so much money for our braces we definitely deserve to be treated well! Good to see you'll be joining the linguals club- although I-Braces look a lot less bulky than my linguals so you shouldn't have a huge lisp like I did. Good lu...

Thank you Bekah ! Sara : I am finding it much easier to eat now. Still missing crisps though :( It's been far too long since I last updated. Had adjustment number 4 a couple of days ago. The temporary bracket was taken off my twisted incisor and replaced with the proper lingual bracket. I also had s...

Apart from when I'm eating or brushing my teeth I rarely think about mine. They really don't bother me that much anymore. Once your tongue has got used to them, they are not such a big deal! :D

Just got back from adjustment number 3. Much better than last adjustment. My ortho removed all ligs and took out my arch wires, she removed my loose bracket and then stuck it back on. She then decided to remove the spring from upper jaw and join my twisty lateral incisor to the archwire. Unfortunate...

Your teeth are looking wonderful, I am very jealous!

My wisdom teeth didn't start appearing until I was 23 and I had an impacted one removed 2 years ago (at 24). Hope yours are trouble free!

I agree that you should treat both uppers and lowers, my bottom teeth were pretty straight to begin with, and don't really show when I smile, but my ortho recommended I get braces on both jaws if I wanted to be really happy with the final outcome. I know you're worried about people asking why you ha...

I have upper and lower linguals and I would say it took about 3-4 weeks for speech to be almost normal (even now S sometimes comes out lispy!) About 2 weeks for my tongue to get used to them and not feel sore. Below are photos before and at 4 months (hopefully a third of the way into treatment): htt...

Hey LaLaDee,

How's everything going? Any more teeth dreams? I had another one the other night, I seem to get them when I'm due for an adjustment!

Well, I can't believe another month has flown by and I have still been very slack at keeping up to date on here! 4 months into my brace journey and I am off for my 3rd adjustment on Monday. I am a little bit worried about my teeth at the moment. * I have a very open bite due to my left molars having...

Looking good! :D

Your 2 front teeth are really level now, I have a similar problem where one is much lower than the other, I think I will probably need a bracket repositioned.

Hope you're still finding it relatively painless!
