Re: Does anyone actually have traditional metal braces anymo

I am getting the ceramic uppers and lower metal just because there wasn't a cost difference for me (but they cost plenty to begin with).

Sleeping with braces

Now that I am getting braces in two weeks, it has got me thinking of all these different things. I sleep on my side and on my stomach some... is that going to make the braces dig into my cheek? I might not out that much pressure on my mouth area... maybe just on the side of my head but who knows. An...

A laser? Whoa, I never knew that was something they did now with fillings. Crazy!

Re: Preparing to get Braces! - almost 30.

That's my currently question too... 2 weeks to decide what color! I am getting ceramic on top and metal on the bottom... can't decide if I should just rock the light blue that I was right away or ease myself into braces with no color on top( meaning smoke or pearl or one of those good less-staining ...

Re: Preparing to get Braces! - almost 30.

Apparently I don't need spacers. I think they said they don't use molar bands... but if they don't, what else do they do? Tobilei, was it you that said you didn't have molar bands? I'm glad about that because everyone HATES them, but I'm worried they are just going to put them in when they put my br...

Re: Preparing to get Braces! - almost 30.

Hey Rhibee83, We are going to get our braces on almost the same day... you on the 15th. Me on the 16th! I've been eating too much Ben & Jerry's lately! Tobelei, I really love the Cherry Garcia (I think it's cherry ice cream with chunks of cherries and chocolate.) It's so good. Half Baked is really g...

Re: Worried about nickel allergy

I did the same thing. I said I didn't have any allergies, but then in doing some research, I came across the nickel allergy thing too. I'm not even positive that I am allergic to nickel or some other cheaper metals... i don't know what it would be though. I used to have reactions to cheap earrings a...

"Signs"

I feel like since I have started this "quest" for straight teeth... first hoping to get Invisalign, now actually getting braces in less than a month... stuff about Invisalign and braces have been popping up everywhere! I almost feel like they are "signs" telling me that it's the right time to do bra...

Re: Getting Braces Monday!

Hey, from what I hear, people see your braces at first, but then after a little while, they don't even notice them anymore! And you will have ceramic on top so it won't be as noticeable! I haven't gotten mine yet but I was definately second guessing myself too. Obviously there will be tons of change...

Re: Tobilei's Train Tracks.

I wear one of those mouthguards now (no braces yet though) and I know that if you don't get it fitted right (like if you couldn't clench down on it good.) then it will feel like it's constantly falling out and definately feels huge! A few months ago I tried to fit one and it just didn't work right. ...
