Well, all went well yesterday. My teeth look great! I really can't believe their my teeth, they look so different from before. The lady started clipping of each of the brackets and it only took about 2 minutes, then I said "well that was easy". She said "No, there's a lot more to do." Then all the g...

Today is the day!

Well in about 10 minutes I am going to leave to go to the Orthodontist for my debanding (woo hoo). It took a long time, but it will be worth it. I'll tell you all how it went after I'm done.

I was a trumpet player (piano player now, but the switch has nothing to do with the braces). When I was in band in High School about half the people in the flute section had braces and it didn't seem to effect their playing. Brass players aren't so lucky. There was a trumpet player in my class who c...

Someone I knew had braces. I always knew I needed them, but I never thought about it much. After the person I knew had them, it festered in my mind for about a year until I finally gave in and got them!

At first I felt a little weird in them when meeting people for the first time. Now that I have been in them for so long, I have just gotten so used to them I hardly think about it at all. It's like they've become a part of who I am!

I could feel them in my mouth, and almost couldn't stand it, the first year. After that I have gotten so used to them. Now I am at the point where I have forgotten what it's like to be without them. When I get them removed it's going to feel weird !

I was using white for a long time until the assistant said to me "Well, if you want them to be less noticeable, you should use silver not white". I'd recommend going with silver.

I understand where your coming from. My ortho told me I am ready to get them off, yet I have to wait 2 months. The thing that's odd to me is the wait time for you. 6 months seems like a REALLY long time for things to settle.
