Re: IMPACTED CANINES CLUB

Now I'm at the stage where I'm waiting for the canine to make movement enough to attach the bracket to it so it'll move with the braces, I guess? For anyone's who had this process before maybe you could help me: the oral surgeon attached a sort of black button to the impacted canine with a gold cha...

Re: IMPACTED CANINES CLUB

Bad news, I went to my ortho yesterday for my brace adjustment etc and she said I still have a long while to go yet :( She is very vague on the details like an exact time (probably because this took x10000 times longer then expected). My last impacted canine is down a lot now and its on its way over...

My 2nd canine poked through about 2 weeks ago and is coming down pretty quick it only took 3.5 years :(

It will probably be a while before this one moves into place because of how far it is from its final destination but with any luck time will fly by!

Final home stretch woooo
