About 3 months, but that was only because I wanted to wait until I took a previously scheduled cruise and got through the Christmas holidays.........unfortunately I got spacers a week before Christmas so that I could have the braces put on before the Spring semester started.

Welcome!

I know you get tired of hearing this but.....................I think your teeth already look great. If you hadn't told us, I would have thought it was an after pic.

LMZ, I am glad you are happy. You shouldn't worry about offending us "metal wearers". Everyone has a unique experience and story to tell and live. Although we have the same goal, there are many paths that lead to the finish line.

Take care !

My sentence was extending due to my extraction gaps "taking their own sweet time" to close :x

Quick question: Do you think Ortho's recommend types of brackets based on their own paticular experiences and personal preferences? I ask because I know of no one in my area that has ceramic brackets. They were not even listed as a choice at the 3 referrals I had..............just wondering. fldhkyb...

I agree the "pastel" pink is somewhat girly, but I love the "Hot Pink". Give it some time you might like it too :wink: I have been wearing powerchains on my top teeth since the second adjustment.

We knew that as my teeth moved inward I would probably have more excess tissue - and I do :( . The plan is to have the pro...
