Ceramic Braces - Upper Teeth

Got my upper teeth fitted with braces yesterday.

Yes, it is very cacat

I asked Dr.Combrink how long will the full treatment be, he said 14-16 months. :(

But he did say that my gums are looking so much better that I must continue doing whatever I am doing :)
Nowadays I brush my teeth more frequently and I even floss my teeth! To be honest, I never floss my teeth before this *shy*
It is quite troublesome to floss WITH braces though, I have to string the floss underneath EACH wire between the teeth.
It is worth it though, making my gums stronger and no more bleeding like before.

Hopefully I will have normal (ooops, I mean prettier) teeth before my birthday next year !

  12. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.

  13. The solution to this issue mostly depends on the unique bite of each patient. Make sure the upper row of teeth doesn't obstruct the brackets on the lower teeth. If so, it's possible that you might wear ceramic braces on both the top and bottom rows of teeth. The stretchability of ceramic material is great. As opposed to metal types, this is far more flexible. Wear on the teeth is more likely to occur if your upper teeth come into touch with your lower ceramic braces.
