Re: Your jail sentence

24 months, only 6 weeks in. I am amazed at how much movement there has been already, maybe faster? One can hope!

Re: clear or metal?

Wanted Invisalign. Not an option. Second choice, clear. Ended up with full metal. The techs all said they’re bigger, break more easily, are harder for them to work with, and end up taking more time. Less time was the selling point for me. I’m looking at two years minimum, and I’d like them off befor...

Re: IMPACTED CANINES CLUB

Add me to your club...top left canine. I’m sure to have lots of questions in the coming months. Got top brackets 2 weeks ago, ortho said they’ll add a spring to start a space at next appointment. Then the dreaded surgery. How often is this unsuccessful do you think?

First time braces at 44

Hello...just got upper braces at 44 years old. It’s been an adjustment to say the least. Will be having a canine pulled down in the near future (baby tooth is starting to fail) then getting bottom brackets. Anyone out there with experience with this?
