Wow. A pretty productive July, Ortho-speaking. Last week I had my lowers un-wired (rear teeth) and the two brackets taken off from the teeth that would be removed the following morning. Tuesday, two extractions, then a follow-up Surgeon visit and BSSO consult the next day. The extractions were amazi...

I am 48, & will be debraced (hopefully) in time for 50, the new 30! :D

When I was at the typical "bracing" age my Mom actually worked at an Ortho clinic.
I told that to my Ortho- and said "isn't that crazy I never got them?"
He replied "She was just waiting for me to be born!"

Thanks Ken! You are always so encouraging! I dug around for a photo last night of my smile pre-wires. As you can see my natural smile does not show the lower crookedness, so most people that see with braces me don't understand why I got them until I give them the full reveal! :D As you can also see,...

Hi friends, So it has been a while for me, not too much to report. :~) I have finally posted photos! Sorry they are not very good! I'll get better at this. I wish I had taken more, sooner. http://i42.tinypic.com/24mce34.jpg As you can see, my lower 4 front teeth have not been wired yet. Brackets are...

Hey thanks Ken! I did check it out and you were right, lots of helpful info (and super scary pics!!). I am excited to move ahead. Funny thing, I never thought my teeth were that bad, or my profile that "off". Lately, everyone I see says- wow your teeth look great. Not sure if they are being nice and...

First timer. Should have had them earlier on, but finances were a struggle. Better later than never. I was braced at 47.

Hmmm. Dilemma. My insurance now may cover the jaw surgery (non cosmetic) my Orthodontist recommended in the start of my treatment. At 9K it was just not a priority for me, especially in the current economy. Now possibly covered, I am curious, have any of you gone through with the surgery, in mid ort...

I agree, I missed this site, and all you fellow brave braced folks.
And Lynn, having to deal with such drama prior to leaving for vacation. Uck. Really. This should be the Good Karma, Positive Vibe, Rooting for You, Go Gum Team, positive web site.
Happy it is back.

Lynn-you are a rock star!

Hey, thanks Ken!
Yes, they are a creative bunch! And they have been really supportive of their boss being out on so many appotintments these past few months :)
Sorry to hear about your surgery being postponed. You have a great attitude though and it is good to know you do not have other issues!
