Re: Worse before better?

I know exactly what you mean. While my top teeth have been straightened out nicely, my bite has become somewhat open in areas. Also, my bottom teeth have been fanned out and there are gaps where there never have been before. I trust my ortho 1000% and can't wait for each new step along the process. ...

Re: My journey here - I wish I did it sooner

Great story. Glad you have found a good ortho and are finally able to give yourself such a nice gift!

I have the clear braces and they really help me feel better about the whole process.

Good luck with your progress and post pics when you can.

Re: 57 and braces again

Hi Amanda88, I love my radiance braces also. They are bigger than the smaller metal ones. They definitely require more stretching to get the ligs around the brackets. I had an assistant break off one of the corners on a bracket when she was changing the clear ligs. I love the fact that from a few fe...

Re: How long until you started seeing movement?

My friends started seeing movement around the 3 week mark. Funny, but I didn notice it. I was obsessed with looking in the mirror so I guess it wasn't obvious to me. So many of my friends also opened up to me about their brace story or how they wish they could put braces on their teeth now as adult....

Re: T-2 days

Good luck Emmtee.

Don't worry about eating. When you get really hungry you will get really creative on what and how to chew things. Ha ha.

It is a fun process.

Re: My journey (expander, then braces)

Hi Featheryy1221, just read your story. Great progress on your teeth. They look great. I am amazed that he let an untrained individual (his daughter) put ligs on your teeth. You must have a lot of patience. My adjustments are every 7 weeks and it seems like an eternity in between appointments. Good ...

Re: embracing the fastbraces - at 31

Welcome.

It is very weird the first few weeks. I tried talking without showing teeth and my husband politely told me I was making it look worse.

It really does get better. Hang in there.
