Free Gingival Graft 8 Teeth While Wearing Full Braces - Columbus, IN

I've had gum recession on my bottom front teeth since I was in my late teens but it wasn't a prominent problem until I got braces a year ago and my teeth straightened out. My gums are healthy (no periodontal disease), they are just genetically thin and my underbite/crossbite/bruxism ruined whatever gum levels I did have.

It has to be the Acceledent causing my teeth to move so quickly, right?? They did say my teeth would be straight in six months, and it looks like they pretty much will be! And if my underbite is gone then maybe I could even get these... READ COMMENT

I totally second this! I hope you're starting to feel better and that healing is going well and quickly! READ COMMENT

Best of luck to you! I, too, think you're beautiful the way you are but totally understand wanting a smaller nose (since I do, too, sometimes, but am fixing my teeth first, nose possibly down the road although I'm sure my husband... READ COMMENT

I didn't have braces before, either. The pain is still totally bearable, though (if anyone is reading this and is scared!). It really is, I've taken maybe 1 ibuprofen for the braces pain the entire 4 months (if that, I don't even... READ COMMENT
