Phew! 2 visits to the ortho in 2 days (she probably thinks I am the biggest pain!) Had the loose bracket and back bit of wire cut off, will probably have it put back on when I go in for my first adjustment.

My mouth feels loads better :D

I can't believe how quick that was! I'll feel much better when I go for my first adjustment after seeing that.

Thanks :)

Just to add to the excitement, a bracket has just popped off my back tooth and I now have a wire and bracket hanging around in the back of my mouth. :(

Just got back from the ortho and still confused about the crack. My ortho says she hasn't seen anything like it in 20 years of being an orthdontist! :? The crack runs obliquely up my tooth so a thin layer of enamel was cracked off but still attached at the top (like a flap). My ortho put some glue u...

Well it's been almost a week since I had my braces fitted. They feel loads better, no pain although my tongue still gets a bit sore in the evening if I talk too much during the day! Managed to eat a roast dinner yesterday (although lots of gravy needed!) so generally feeling better about the whole t...

Congratulations Boots on getting braced!

Although chewing is still a bit strange I managed my first non-mush meal tonight (curry), hang in there!

Wow! That's a huge amount of movement in 1 month. I hope mine get moving that quickly. With that much movement I'm sure your teeth will be ready for lowers to go on in June.

Good luck, I look forward to following your story

Thanks elpi I wouldn't say I've conquered my dentist fear yet but I've taken my first steps! I understand exactly how you felt going in for your extraction, I had an impacted wisdom tooth out last year. Although it was nowhere near as bad as I imagined it would be, I am still not looking forward to ...

Just read your story and noticed that you had your bottom braces fitted same day that I had both sets done. I also have molar build-ups which are taking getting used to, can only bite properly on one side of my mouth! Your pics look really good, I hope mine start moving noticeably within 2 weeks! Go...

Pre-brace photos

Here are some pre-brace pictures, as you can see my bottom jaw is only slightly crowded whilst my top jaw needs the most work (midline off to the right, left incisor twisted) http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/8075/04102008105404am5sy6.th.jpg http://img505.imageshack.us/img505/3041/04102008105404am4...

I too am feeling a little discouraged, had my linguals (upper and lower) put on yesterday and am feeling quite sorry for myself! Can only manage to eat soup and my mouth is throbbing. It's my birthday next week, will I be able to eat out? Solid food seems quite scary right now!

Unhappy teeth's story- Updated with photos (page 5)

Hi everyone Just had lingual braces (upper and lower) fitted yesterday and am feeling a bit sorry for myself! I am very nervous about going to the dentist/orthodontist so just getting them fitted was a big deal for me. Although I'm not in too much discomfort, a couple of my teeth are really sore and...
