Mail to my general dentist

Today I have sent an email to my general dentist asking her how to proceed. I asked her if she already received the medical report of my last visit at the implantologist / periodontist. For some reason she was able to reply back to me in one hour. She told me she didn’t receive the report yet but adviced me to contact both the orthodontist and periodontist to start working on a plan. I have already sent an email last… Read More »Mail to my general dentist

It’s definitive: My tooth is lost :(

Last Tuesday (July 5th) I visited a new periodontist office. My last visit in May at another periodontist office ended-up with double feelings. I was getting pretty confused so I asked my dentist what to do. She suggested to get a second periodontist appointment with focus on implants… I was able to schedule that appointment pretty quickly. That appointment happened last Tuesday. Arriving quiet on time I ended up in the dentist chair. An assistant told me she would take… Read More »It’s definitive: My tooth is lost 🙁

Tomorrow first visit implantologist

As mentioned in my previous blog post I have canceled my visit at my paradontolog end of this year. It is all taking too long so I called my dentist and asked her what to do. She suggest to make an appointment with an implantologist and to discuss next steps with him/her. I have scheduled this appointment a few weeks ago but didn’t update my site until now. So tomorrow I’ll have my visit with the implantologist and I’m very… Read More »Tomorrow first visit implantologist

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 think he is happy with my decision). My orthodontist sent me another email and told… Read More »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 as expected. After 3 months it looks like I’m still nowhere. I came to the… Read More »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 disappointing 🙁 Finally the doctor picked me up and asked me to get into the… Read More »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 later on. I hope you like it! Only 8 days to go to get my… Read More »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 like how I feel today. I’m also wondering if this second orthodontist will move /… Read More »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. My next appointment with my general dentist will be in November. We discussed the progress… Read More »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 this topic and how many things that can go wrong. The procedure should be done… Read More »Tomorrow I get my Amalgam removed
