Stacy, Thanks for responding :)

Thanks and Take Care

Thanks for responding Chris, They did tell me I might have some spaces and have to have some bonding, but one of my front spaces keeps getting bigger. That elastic has brought my canine down some, but I just don't understand why part of my top wire was removed, my top arch is so flaired out I beleiv...

Question...Anybody's Ortho Did this????

Ok, Next month marks my 2ed anniversary since being braced. My original sentence is for 30 months. Now that being said, my last adjustment was last week, my bite on the left side started getting worse from about 6 months in to the braces process.

When I first posted in this thread, I had hooks welded to the wire, but once the hg moved my teeth back far enough they attached the hooks directly to th...

Your teeth are looking good. I have the same type of brackets as you do.....Well my front 6 and front bottom look like the normal type of metal brackets, but the rest look exactly what you have on. I'm kinda curious what type they are, they don't seem as common. Anyway, your treatment is awsome so f...

KK is totally right :D

I believe it was 3 month between my initial consult, x-rays and impressions untill I got my braces placed. My ortho is very busy plus I had to have dental work done before the braces could actually be placed.

I wish you the best of luck with your upcomming treatment :D

I also had the option to pay upfront and receive a discount, but I put about $1300 and then I have monthly payments of $117.

I'm actually kind of excited, I only have 1 more payment left :banana:
