I absolutely cannot believe it's been a year and a half since I started this braces journey... and that it's been seven months since I update this. Time flies like crazy. Well, currently I am studying abroad in Florence, Italy! It's been such a huge learning and growing experience. I love it here, b...

Megan11 - Thanks so much for your advice! I'm glad to see somebody that knows what I'm going through.


How much extra would I be paying if I got them off and then put back on?

Thanks, but I have already decided that I want them off. I've planned ahead for Italy, done research on orthodontists in the area of my school, and I haven't found much. Like I said, I just want some advice on how to ask him.

Request for early braces removal... advice? help?!

Hey all, If you have read my Braces Story, you may know that I'm headed to study abroad in Italy for 9 months, on September 7. I've been wearing braces since September of 2008, and my teeth weren't bad to begin with. I was given an 18-24 month sentence, and already I have noticed amazing changes. My...

Forgot to add that I also got a new wire on the bottom. Hurt pretty bad the first two days, and it is actually still kinda sore every once in a while, but that means there's movement!

Had my appointment last week on Thursday. Progress looking good. Couldn't get the wire ties cause there's still some small gaps that he wanted to correct before doing those. I have an appointment on June 25, and then again on July 17. After that appointment I'll have one last appointment before I he...

So I started watching Ugly Betty recently, and I've decided that I'm going to get purple ligs on my bottom teeth when I have my appointment next week! I love that show. haha. I'm going to request wire ties on my top teeth, but we'll see what Dr. says.

Ok guys, I might be going crazy, but I seriously cannot find a way to edit my posts! What's up with that? I already asked in the sticky in the Our Braces Story forum, but I haven't gotten a response. I want to edit my title so the date isn't old, but it's saying "You cannot edit posts."

Thanks, Ken! I'm hoping to request a clear wire (biomer) with white wire ties, and I'm willing to pay extra, but I'm okay if that doesn't work out. I would probably only have about 6 months in them when I get back, as my sentence is 18 months. I'm also worried about something breaking while I'm over...

So I think I'm going to request the BioMer wire with white wire ties. We'll see what becomes of it. If I can't do it, it's not big deal. If I can, that'd be preferable :)

I never have a pokey wire right when i get them changed, but as my bottom teeth move after each appointment, it's inevitable that my bottom teeth, left side, sprout a pokey wire. i can definitely empathize.
