My bite before braces and Herbst appliance (will probably post a resent picture of my bite once I get the appliance off)
/r/bracesFinally done after 6 years!! Gum surgery + 20 months of braces + whitening
/r/bracesSo worth it!!! This page helped me get through the (self-inflected) embarrassment of being an adult with braces. Thanks for all the helpful information and support.
/r/bracesJune 13 to July 12! Getting my second adjustment this week and hopefully my bottom braces. Excited to continue seeing progress!
/r/bracesSlow progress is still progress!
/r/bracesDay 0 (before braces) vs day 130 (today). Surgery for 2 canine exposures & 6 baby teeth extractions later! I have gaps all throughout my smile but it’s the most confident I’ve ever felt! (Also always accidentally staining my braces after I eat Curry lol)
/r/bracesThis fell off. Dentists are accepting only urgent cases. What do I do?
/r/bracesWas able to chew tangerines without it hurting since I got my braces on, I love to see it !
/r/bracesI just got braces 3 days ago. Some teeth still sore some are not. My teeth are severely crowded and misaligned and I’m so excited to finally get them straight. About how long till I would see some results?
/r/bracesIs this gum recession or did I brush too hard?
/r/braces22 weeks difference. i’m amazed.
/r/bracesWondering how long will I have to get braces for. I am not expecting a model looking smile, just want to get gap in between my middle teeth sorted.
/r/bracesHas anyone gotten steel wires early in their treatment? (more info in comments.)
/r/bracesAdvice/suggestions? In comments.
/r/bracesAfter my kids , it's my time to get it at 42 yrs old. So happy and so painful. 24 months to go
/r/bracesMy teeth were very crooked before braces. I’ve had braces for 5 years since 2015 and I’ve never took a picture showing my teeth! I finally feel pretty
/r/bracesCheck comments please!!
/r/bracesI got my braces four days ago and I have been going through the web, but can’t seem to find it. Did anybody else have sensitivity to metal utensils in the beginning? It feels weird using my metal straw or metal spoon. Does this sensitivity go away ?
/r/bracesGot a nice pretty light blue color change ! 😬❤️
/r/braces7 months down! 😄
/r/bracesOne month in! Definitely wish I took better quality/more pictures in the beginning but excited to see the little changes 🤩
/r/bracesWhy is that part yellow? I just got them
/r/bracesLess shark-y more human-y 😅 almost 8 months progress
/r/bracesI’ve had tmj for about a year, my jaw is constantly popping and gets sore a lot. Today the dentist told me my top teeth are slanted which is causing my bottom teeth to become slanted. He recommend braces, Anyone else have this issue? what was the process of fixing it for you? Thanks:)
/r/bracesDamon braces day one at age 26. Ow.
/r/bracesJust got the bottom brackets on (Damon), and will get 4 premolar extractions and top brackets on the 18th, then will get the wires put on a few days after. So thankful this is finally happening!
/r/bracesMy orthodontist told me today may have been my last adjustment! Can’t believe this is really my smile.
/r/bracesGot a stainless steel wire, power chain across both upper and lower teeth, and heavy elastics yesterday! My mouth is killing me! I’m 10 months in and ortho says I may have my braces off by December/January. (i don’t usually smile like this; just wanted to show more of the lower teeth)
