Hi Lingualslady, I've had mine for 4 months now and due to the build ups on my molars I still find it really difficult/uncomfortable to chew! Saying that, I still eat pretty much anything (unless really crunchy) but just cut it up really small and use my tongue to kind of mash it around my mouth! Go...

Wow, your teeth are looking really good and after only 4 months! :D

Are implants part of your treatment with your ortho or will you have to go to your normal dentist for them?

Wow! Glad you're doing well and recovered from the surgery. The expander looks pretty impressive- it seems to have expanded a lot since your first photo, I'm sure you'll notice the extra room soon!

Just returned from adjustment number 2, it was a little bit painful, especially the left side of my upper jaw (where the most movement has been) as my teeth are pretty tender at the mo. I have thicker wires top and bottom (I think she said 0.14 on the top and 0.16 on the bottom). I still have the sa...

Wow! I have made it to the 3 month mark. That means I could be a quarter of the way through my treatment (or only one sixth), time has flown. :D Am off to the ortho tomorrow for adjustment number 2. I have the normal pre-dentist nerves but am hoping it will go as smoothly last time, although my teet...

Congrats on getting your spacers, glad they're not giving you much trouble. I totally understand the dream situation. I had one the other night where my twisted incisor split in 2 and then crumbled into little pieces! :soremouth:

I lost one of my back brackets within a week of them being fitted. My ortho hasn't replaced it yet but I haven't had any problems (touch wood) with the arch wire and it hasn't affected movement.

I had a premolar removed a month ago and I was also very conscious about the big gap and was especially worried about comments my pupils might make! I had nothing to worry about- last week someone who already knew that I had braces asked me if I would need any teeth removed. I pointed out the gap an...

I too had a problem with excess saliva, lasted about a week and then subsided. Lisp is still there slightly (although I can say sizzling sausages perfectly now much to the annoyance of my pupils!) :D

I have upper and lower linguals and although I haven't noticed much movement in my lowers, my top teeth have really moved especially my central incisors.
