Basic Information

About Amanda_84
Australian finally getting braces at 26!

Dental Alignment report:
There is crowding and / or irregularity of the teeth in upper / lower dental arches

Prominent upper incisors are vulnerable to trauma. Reducing the prominence of teeth can help to reduce the risk of injury to the front teeth, especially when the lips do not habitually cover the teeth.
Deep Bite is present that may strip the gum attachment from the opposing teeth. Orthodontic treatment can help to prevent this by correcting the angulation between the front teeth and making the bite occur on the teeth only.
Braces Type:
lingual top; ceramic bottom
Braces Status:
2 weeks out till getting them applied

3 months in

by Amanda_84 on 08-02-2011 at 01:36 AM
well My calander reminded me it was 3 months since I had the braces on over the weekend.

I've got my next appointment this friday - there is a little it of movement since my last post. Namely some gaps here and there. The tooth that has turned around is still to come down yet but its nice and straight.

I've finally got back into pole dancing (& the gym since they go together really) but so far i hurt my wrsit and rotator cuff and its only been one week of lessons.

yay for some movement

by Amanda_84 on 07-09-2011 at 03:01 AM
Well it's 2 months and 1 week. I had my first proper adjustment, he put a thicker square wire on the bottom (not sure about the top) and power chains top & bottom. I could feel the pressure in the chair as we was tightening so KNEW it was gonna hurt later. But I still managed to go out with friends to a brazillian resturant (read: Meat central) and ate somewhat a normal amount of food.

Ortho took progress photos - he said there had been enough movement already to warrant some

1 month in, minimal progress

by Amanda_84 on 05-31-2011 at 10:51 PM
Well it's only been 1&1/2 month in my lowers & 1 month in my uppers and i've been in discomfort but nothing major. Mostly eating semi-properly.

All I have noticed is that the gap on my LRHS seems to be smaller than the gap on the LLHS - that's it.

So i'm feeling a uninspired. I have my first 'adjustment' (because he never adjusted the bottom ones last time) appointment on the 25th June, which is the day after my birthday. And by the it will be almost 2+ months

Linguals suck LOL

by Amanda_84 on 04-30-2011 at 04:28 AM
So I've just got back home from getting my linguals on.

That was a long appointment!

I wasn't able to find much info on HOW they put linguals on to prepare, so here is a short run down:

(some small bits & technical aspects missed, and just FYI I'm a huge wuss)
1. They scratch the teeth to give the glue a rough surface to bind too...which was a bit strange, but he did this really quickly
2. They put the cement on and the bracket

Lingual top braces on tomorrow

by Amanda_84 on 04-29-2011 at 12:38 AM
Well the last couple of weeks (can't believe its already been 2!) have been pretty good since the dry sockets healed up. The ceramics on the bottom haven't given me any drama, I was in pain a little maybe for the first week as I adjusted but since the dry socket the pain seemed so minimal I didn't really notice it. This week I haven't had any pain.

Others say they don't need to use the wax at all after the first couple of weeks - but I'm pretty sure I'm going to be using it for a
