Title: My new Two Braces (Toys)
Post by: Louis03M on 02. July 2021, 09:33:15 AM
these are my two new braces, what do you think?

1) Modified Activator With Pelottes

I ordered this:
https://nullrefer.com/?https://www.bracesshop.com/en/functional-appliances/38/activator-with-tongue-crib-and-pelottes?c=60

I did make the following changes:
- The upper part of the palate completely closed and thick.
- The lower extension part closed on the front.
- Protective tubes put on the upper and lower arch wire.
- Pads and tubes colored orange.
- Device colored blue and orange.
- Add design of the soccer ball to the upper part of the palate.

2) Modified Retainer With Brakets

I ordered this:
https://nullrefer.com/?https://www.bracesshop.com/en/special-appliances/fake-braces/14/retainer-with-brackets?c=61

I had these changes made:-
- Green color
- The thick upper plate of the palate, covering the entire palate
- Bite plane added to the upper plate. I only took the upper device.

Those look awesome! How do they feel? Did you get headgear as well?

Yes, on every orthodontic appliance there is a headgear both the highpull and the cervical one.
I will receive the two braces in a few days and I will be able to tell you more about what they look like when they are worn.

I wanted an orthodontic appliance that was bulky and uncomfortable in the mouth, which made it difficult to speak, which produced a lot of saliva, which made the lips stick out a little.
I had also asked to add the pearl to hold the tongue but the requests I made were so many that this one will have been lost.
Patience for the pearl.

With the other device I wanted to experience the sensation of having a fixed but removable device.
I made the palatal plate thicken and also added the bite on the plate.
This device will also be a bit uncomfortable to wear, with some difficulty speaking and a lot of saliva

The activator has arrived, the other device not yet.

I wore the activator and I can tell you my experience:

It is impossible to speak because both the upper and lower teeth are blocked.
The appliance is a single block.

Its presence is very evident in the mouth.

There is the extension of the plaque up to the lower teeth.

The upper plate covers the entire palate.

The pelottes are cluttered and you feel them between the gum and the outside of the mouth.

The lips are more prominent.

You always feel the pearl in front of the tongue.

The device produces a lot of saliva.
You have a bit of pain in your mouth and teeth at first because you feel the pressure of the upper and lower arches and you also feel the pressure of the pelottess.

The feeling you have is that you feel imprisoned and you are afraid of not being able to remove the appliance.

I have yet to try it with the headgear.
I'll let you know what it feels like.

In any case, I also recommend you to order this type of device with my modifications I'm sure you will like it.

That certainly looks good and quite extreme.
Can you breathe through your mouth at all?
I can certainly see why speaking would be impossible.

I am never quite sure if my largest appliance would be called an activator (see my avatar pic), its generally simpler, more like a top and bottom Hawley joined together. But the main difference is that it has a breathing slot at the front so I can speak reasonably well and also drink but eating is impossible of course.

This are other photo with headgear:
https://nullrefer.com/?https://* c e n s o r e d */gallery/7D1Kw5x

With my activator and the changes I had made, it is very difficult to breathe through the mouth.

I tried to plug my nose and just use my mouth. The air that passes is very little.

Speaking is impossible due to the extension of plaque to the lower teeth.

There are no openings on the front, the plate is completely closed.

You can't close your lips completely, because the pelottes move them out and take up space.

I also inserted the headgear using the cervical band and the highpull band at the same time.

I hooked the two bands to position number 6.

With this type of device it is impossible to eat and it is impossible to drink.

There is a lot of saliva and when you remove it, a lot of drool comes out of your mouth.

If you keep it snugly between your upper and lower teeth, you can't move your mouth up and down.

You can move your lips and tongue.

I had the pearl put on the inside of the device.
When you move your tongue you feel the pearl moving.
The pearl is not fixed, it has some movement and rotates.

One thing I am very happy with was the possibility to add the image of the soccer ball on the plaque.

It's nice to be able to customize the appliance.

One thing that I think would be worth trying: Put on this device, have your mouth gagged with the gray tesaband tape, have your hands tied behind your back and have your eyes blindfolded. Try to stay like this for about an hour and see how long you resist.
Maybe even get tickled in these conditions.

What do you think about this my crazy idea?
