Soon to be newbie with clear and metal

#1 Post by Hollywoodsmile »

Hi everyone!

I'm super excited and nervous since I'm getting wired this Wednesday. I have a bad bad TMJ problem so need to get them straight to then cover and literally regenerate all of my teeth.

:) yay!

It is so worth getting braces! I had ceramics upper and metal lower. They were on for two years. It sounds like a lot, but it went by really fast when I look back on it!

Best of luck to you!

Good luck! I'm on my 3rd month of metal braces (about 2.5 years to go) and it's so worth it! In 3 months I've already noticed a HUGE difference in my teeth. Makes me wish I had done it sooner! (I'm 29)

Howdy. I'm well into treatment and remember that early on I had a wonky bite for quite awhile; slowly it improved. At this point in time into treatment (22 weeks and change), it almost feels right. I can sense that the bite still isn't quite right when I eat certain foods like grapes, melon, etc., as molars come together and squeak. The ortho projected a 24 month treatment plan and it wouldn't at all surprise me if it goes into overtime. Be patient, it'll come together nicely (pardon the pun).
