Waiting, waiting and waiting

On 26th of May I decided to send an email to my orthodontist. I have told her that I prefer to give up my front tooth and go for the implant. I’m getting impatient and don’t want to wait for the periodontist appointment end of this year (October 2022). The periodontist already responded to my email telling me he will cancel the surgery. (I don’t … Continue reading Waiting, waiting and waiting

Returned from Periodontist appointment and came to a conclusion

Today I have returned from my periodontist appointment. The appointment started exactly at the schedule hour. First he checked all the pockets on each and every tooth. Then he checked my gum and stability of my teeth. Most of my teeth are acceptable (pockets varying from 2mm to 3 mm. Some are 4mm), except from the pocket around my front tooth 😦 It didn’t workout … Continue reading Returned from Periodontist appointment and came to a conclusion

Returned from second orthodontist opinion

On April 21th I had my second opinion appointment at an orthodontist. After arriving in the ortho office I waited in the waiting room. I had to wait for more than 45 minutes! (You have to know I had to do this appointment during my working hours.) Each and every other patient was allowed to get in first 😦 That way my appointment already started … Continue reading Returned from second orthodontist opinion

Some changes to my website theme

Today I played around with the layout and theme of my adultwithbraces.com website. I didn’t like the previous theme so I wanted to change it. This way my website is fully prepared for the future and hopefully I can share many more stories and experiences about my exciting journey. I might have to add some picture(s) on the front page and I’ll check that out … Continue reading Some changes to my website theme

The adult case acceptance dilemma

Today I was thinking about my next appointment end of April. It will be my second orthodontist opinion to check what I should do with my situation. Every time when I start thinking about this appointment I get pretty nervous. I’m afraid that my second opinion orthodontist will confirm what I already heard from the other orthodontist. Sounds little bit confusing but that is exactly … Continue reading The adult case acceptance dilemma

Amalgam Before & After

As you have been reading on this blog I had my molar amalgam removal appointment yesterday. Things went fine and fluent! As promised I would share the before and after images… You can find them down below! The appointment went pretty fluent. My dentist used a green latex dental dam to protect me from swallowing amalgam particles. The aesthetic result is way better than expected. … Continue reading Amalgam Before & After

Tomorrow I get my Amalgam removed

Tomorrow I have a new appointment at my dentist to remove the Amalgam from one of my back molar teeth. To be honest I don’t 100% understand why it needs to be removed but I think it is related to the braces treatment I might have to start later on. I’m not soooo keen on getting the amalgam removed. Especially when you start reading about … Continue reading Tomorrow I get my Amalgam removed

Periodontal cleaning phase 2/2 & Orthodontist

Last Monday I had my second periodontal cleaning. This time the right-ride of my teeth (both top and bottom) have been treated. I was supposed to have my talk with the orthodontist before the perio treatement, but for some reason there was no time left to have the ortho-talk. The periodontist put my gums “a sleep” with some nasty syringe stings. I had to wait … Continue reading Periodontal cleaning phase 2/2 & Orthodontist

Periodontal cleaning phase 1/2

Thursday 10th I had my first periodontal cleaning. To be honest I underestimated the procedure. Didn’t expect the anesthesia syringe to hurt like that. The periodontist gave me about 10 of them. He decided to start with the left half of both top and bottom teeth. After the syringes the treatment went well. The treatment took 45 minutes in total. Next Monday (on Valentin’s day!) … Continue reading Periodontal cleaning phase 1/2

Braces and Confidence: What to expect?

Now that things start getting serious and I might have to start wearing metal brackets on my teeth… the self consciousness starts kicking in. Again I started looking around to find adult male persons wearing braces, but no “luck” 😦 Even though a lot of people insured me I shouldn’t be worried about it, I’m starting to feel pretty strange about it. I think one … Continue reading Braces and Confidence: What to expect?
