How are you getting on? I read all your posts and I hope all is going well for you, fingers crossed.
I felt kind of sorry for you really because Carole is the only one responding to your blog, not sure if that's normal around here. She seems like an extremely nice person.
Maybe it's because your issues are not because you have financial problems, health issue problems, pain related, or aesthetic problems but I don't feel you get the answers you deserve so I chimed in. I hope I don't cause more issues than I can answer.
People can be reserved unless they can relate.
All I can say is that it's a big challenge taking on braces at this age. Not because one can't have positive results but if you like reading about mouth issues, I'd encourage you to read about periodontal disease caused by braces and also about peri implant disease caused by implants. Bone loss is also related to the same problem and they are all bacterial diseases that dentists don't like talking about or have any successful protocol to cure or prevent them, regardless of how much money one pays them in the mean time for different treatments.
The reason for bad breath(when a consequence of dental issues) is the exact same, bacterial, but in the lucky cases it's only got to the teeth, not the gums or the roots of teeth when teeth loss and bone loss start occurring. So you are right that most people have it, some in less extent than others.
And obviously, another reason is having teeth extracted and not being replaced for years when the jaw just learns that it no longer needs supporting teeth and the bone loss occurs.
I am not sure which one of them is the cause in your case, but I'd take my health in my own hands.
And I wish you the best of luck.
Hi the reason there are not may replies to this thread is because it is a journal, this part of the forum is for people to record their treatments and progress, so that at some later date they can refer back to it to see how far they have come and how they felt at certain times in their treatment.
I hesitate myself to put comments on journals but every now and again I do add a few words to let them know that people are reading their story and are interested in knowing how they are getting on.
Normally if people are wanting comments and support as opposed to recording their experiences they will post in the support part of the forum.
Thank you for your comments but don't worry no-one is just left to worry and stress over their oral problems.
All the best to you
Davee sounds like things are going well and to plan, I hope this continues for you and that it is successful, GOOD LUCK and have a really good 2015. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU
