Love your electric toothbrush? Hate that yucky mouthwash? Can't live without that terrific threader floss? Got a fave canker sore remedy? Here's where you can post your opinions and reviews of specific products relating to dental hygiene and your braces. Tell others what works....and what doesn't!
I got my first 3 fillings at 32. I wasn’t visiting the dentist regularly and haven’t been in ages because I was scared. It ended up being like anything, and blown up in my head haha. White fillings, on my molars. You can’t even tell. Hoping they won’t cause any problems with my future braces journey.
I have more fillings than I even know. I’m sure I have at least one in each molar (I don’t have wisdom teeth) and at least a couple bicuspids as well. Mine are all on my occlusal/biting surfaces, and my teeth have naturally deep pits, which seems to be the cause. My fillings are all white/composite, so they don’t show.
I'm 42, no fillings and no dental work done on my teeth at all prior to getting braces. I think because I've never had anything done it took me so long finally getting braces. I was so scared that after the ortho fitted my braces ( it was much quicker that I thought and pain free) I felt like I was going to faint they had to get me tea with sugar and let me sit in the chair for good 15 minutes to call down. I had 5 readjustments since and I'm totally fine now. But I need two implants and I am certainly not looking forward to that!
I have a few composite fillings in between some of my front teeth from not flossing regularly and developing some interproximal cavities as a result in 2020 and in 2021. I've been flossing more regularly now so hopefully I won't develop any more cavities.
