So I am a 31 year old mother of one who has had/crooked teeth for as long as I can remember. I was supposed to have braces put on when i was a teenager but my parents couldn't afford to do it so I grew to get used to my teeth and have simply put up with them.
I have a wayward upper canine that I affectionately refer to as my snaggletooth, (or sometimes just snaggle).
Thanks to some sideways growing wisdom teeth my lowers are extremely crowded as they were all pushed forward, I have had all four removed. I have also lost a lower molar as the wisdom was pushing so hard it literally snapped it in half.
I have lost an upper bicupsid after failed root canal treatment. (The only tooth I have ever needed a filling in).
To make room for my lil toothy pegs, My ortho had removed, an upper bicuspid on the other side, a lower bicuspid on my left, but due to the lost molar on the right, he was reluctant to take a bicuspid from that side as I would be left with only one tooth to chew with!
So he took a lateral incisor on the right. (much to my dismay)!
After all the extractions I am actually very happy I got my journey started, and really wish I had of done it sooner!
I have some slight movement, so check out my pics:http://s1210.photobucket.com/albums/cc411/Bron80/
(I dont know how to change the order of the pics so if there are any photo bucket users out there that could help I'd appreciate it!)
Till next time!
