Almost there

Well, June de-bracing assumption turned into a December 25th debracing (straight from the Ortho - without asking this time :) Here is the new count-down: http://tickers.TickerFactory.com/ezt/d/4;10747;0/st/20101225/e/Braces+off/dt/1/k/0ca2/event.png As you can see, I was 5 months off, but time flies...

Went to the orthodontist yesterday, looking for good news :P Perhaps an early, beginning of summer debonding (ie. end of april, 2010). Nope, "you'll be done around june" while ever so slightly lowering his volume. :P What still needs to corrected? Well, the midline needs to become a midline (bottom ...

You are you're most important critic.

Simply ask your orthodontist, and imply that "maybe it's a good idea?".

That way, if it really is, then they will hook you up with exactly what you need.

Otherwise, you might just be another face in your clinic.

You will have a great smile :)

BTW impressive mid-line.

Mine is a little bit off still, but the currently prescribed elastic treatment is slowly doing its job.

Luckily, you won't need a fixerup :)

Wearing more than 1 pair of elastics?

So my orthodontist has finally prescribed wearing elastics (about 1 week ago).

What would happen if I wore more than 1 set on my braces?

Faster movement? Gum recession?

I've tried this a couple times (within a 1 week duration), and the only symptom so far is a slightly sore jaw :?

So it's been 3 months since my last update :) Lots of relative progress has been made, in particular, my life-long frontal diastema has FINALLY been closed. Sweet :) But with that a small gap is forming in my bottom 4. No big deal :) I haven't had an upper-wire change in the last 3 months though. On...

Going to my ortho again this upcoming tuesday (seemed like more time passed than before). Gonna get the 2nd-last thickest wire which should straighten my teeth up a bit more :) And hopefully more rubber-bands to close up the gaps in my top-front 4. :D Also some dental hygenist students complimented ...

Real2: 4th Adjustment, lowers FINALLY on :)

I should've posted this sooner, but was incredibly busy transitioning from completing another year at university, straight to work. Anyways, the adjustment occurred on Friday (it was a great day here, nice and sunny, +27*C). It was the day that my lowers were finally bonded on. I'm really unsure of ...

I got clear brackets on my tops, and metals on my bottoms.

While the clears had their initial WOW/inconspicuous factor, that wore off after about 2 months, and now they are wrapped in gray elastics/black elastics/silver wires... so who cares :)

So my next adjustment is coming up (pix soon), and I've been dating this girl for about a week now (not legit commitment but w.e). I'm kind of interested to see whether she will stick around as I get the bottom arch installed; I'm cute, but the smile is another story (especially when it looks like a...
