January 2008 Braces Poll

#1 Postby bbsadmin » Thu Jan 03, 2008 2:46 pm

With the start of a new year, we all think about resolutions for improving ourselves and our lives. This year, do your resolutions include your teeth or your braces?

Feel free to add comments to this thread after you vote!

I voted no, because I'm 99.9% certain that I will not be debanded this year, and I never make NY resolutions anyway. I'm optimistic that 2009 will be THE year I finally get my smile.

OK, so why has this poll had over 30 views so far but less than 10 votes? Hmmmm.....

I technically made the decision to get braces several months ago.

BUT actually going through with it started today, which was after the new year. I could have backed out until this morning...but now they have my money, hehe. And the decision even back then was "I'll get braces at the first of the year."

So I said "yes."
Braced for the first time on January 17th, 2008!
Planned with OrthoCAD iQ
Damon 3 ("social six") and 3MX brackets

I'll admit that I viewed a time or two without voting. I couldn't figure out that I needed to be logged in to vote. I was logging in to ask you how to vote, when I realized that I might have the answer!

I voted "yes" because I want to continue flossing, brushing and going to my dental appointments to keep up my oral health.

Braces are off - that's the best I can do involving my teeth! :D

I'd be happy if I got them off even a MONTH early :D

It took me a moment to realize that I had to be logged in to be able to vote on the poll.

I voted 'yes' because I resolve to be Naked by summertime! Woo-hoo! :D :) :o :oops:

Wish me luck on my adjustment 1 week from today!

I added a reminder after the question so that there won't be any other confusion about needing to be logged in to be able to vote!

I tend to view my braces as an outside-of-me process. Aside from keeping up my dental health (which I'd do anyways, braces or not), I don't have any tasks to do for my braces. :)

I voted "no" because I don't believe in new years resolutions. They tend to be yet another thing to get depressed about when I break them. :oops:

No, I don't usually make resolutions. If I do, I forget them within a week or so. Haha :lol:

It's either late this year or January next year that I'm debanded. Most likely January.

I voted no. For one thing, I don't make new year's resolutions, so that's probably the main reason :D And I only got my braces on 3 weeks ago, so there's absolutely zero chance of getting them off this year. I'm hoping that I'll see some good progress over the course of this year though.
