from North Carolina
My name is Cindi
from North Carolina. I am 47 years old, and in braces for the
second time. My first time was when I was in in my early 30's.
Wore those for 4 years, and once I got them off, didn't wear the
retainer like I was supposed to.
The last few years
my bottom teeth had shifted to the point it started to push my
top teeth out. My husband had begin to notice it as I would
talk, and recommended going back to the orthodontist to have
them checked. Once in, he told me option 1 was braces, and
option 2 was braces, so needless to say that on December 1st
2005 the braces went back on.
I chose metal on
both top and bottom, hope to get better results. I feel like a
teenager again, the whole braces and glasses thing. The first
week has been a little stressful, not being able to eat like
normal, but the end result will be worth it. This time I WILL
wear the retainer when theses come off in 24 to 36 months.
