Re: June Debrace Club!

I got my braces off a couple of hours ago! The dental hygenist did it and also scaling! I guess I'm happy with the results however if I consider the minor details, one of my lateral incisors is a teeny bit rotated (they were my initial problematic teeth). Definitely have a perfect bite. I have to wa...

This involved extractions of my upper 1st bicuspids and I have a powerchain on my canines up to my 2nd m...
