DD braced!

My 9 yo daughter was a trooper yesterday getting her braces on. She was very nervous, but handled the appointment very well. I will get some pics of her new metallic smile tonight.

What type of retainers do you have?
I have upper and lower bonded retainers, as well as a Hawley to wear all the time.

Party at my house!

Tomorrow's my debanding day! I'm so anxious and excited.

Anyone want to join me afterwards while I pig out on corn on the cob, hard crust pizza & cashews?

Photo diary of my braces journey

This is my before picture. It's not the best picture, but it shows the overjet and space. You can't see but my lowers were uneven and some teeth even grew in cross ways. I was braced 10/06 http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b234/laurahalvey/pre-braceface.jpg This is about 1/2 way through treatment. N...

Just had my final adjustment!

I got a new wire, and they took impressions for my retainers. I can't believe this journey is almost over. I'm excited, and a little nervous. Can't wait to show off my new smile.

Pink power chains on top, purple ligs on bottom.

( and green and purple elastics on the sides)

Really, my teeth are whiter than they look in the picture. Not sure why they look so yellow.

final adjustment this week!

Wednesday is my final adjustment! I get de-braced on Aug 27. I've had them for 2 1/2 yrs!

Just call me Bucky Badger!
