Re: Braces off Friday BUT...

Re: Braces off Friday BUT...

I went in today and the assistant asked how everything felt and if I had any concerns. I pointed out the gap and the ortho came over a little bit later to do a final check to give the go ahead for debracing.

Braces off Friday BUT...

Scheduled to be debraced Friday!! Yesterday I noticed a slight gap opening up between my right lateral incisor and canine teeth.

Re: Your before, during, after, now pictures please.

My ortho said my braces are ready to come off Friday! She placed the lower bonded retainer and did the impression for the upper which will be placed Friday. She said I'd have upper and lower essix but previousley she said an upper Hawley so I'm not sure on that. I'm not thrilled with my "prominent" ...

Re: Dry lips..

It doesn't smell the best but the only thing that's stopped my chronic chapped lips is Bag Balm. You can find it in the pharmacy area.

WOW! Your 6 month results are amazing! At least your ortho agreed there is a "problem" so you don't have to do any convincing.

Re: Beginning treatment to improve open bite.

I am also doing a non surgical treatmetn of an open bite. I had four consults and two out of the four orthos said surgery. I'm about 1-2 months away from debracing and am very very happy with how the elastics have worked.

Re: Oh my gosh, I'm getting braces...
