thx for your comments. I'm still high from the debonding. Hehe. It's SO weird to brush your teeth without all the metal. And I have got to learn to smile and show teeth. I just hope that I will not relapse. Can't wait to get that retainer eventhough I will probably speak like a person with a speech ...

goodbye braces :-D

yes, today it happened. My braces were removed. All in all it took a couple of hours. First my bite turbos were removed. Then the bonded retainer were fixed on the inside of the lower and upper front teeth after which the brackets + wire were cut off. The worst part was the removal of the bonding ma...

thx Audra and starzz :) starzz : yes, it's that lateral incisor. My ortho has explained that he has tried to extrude the tooth but the tooth apparently does not respond. I have had some problems with the teeth in the upper jaw as the teeth almost don't move. For example only by using a triple power ...

I wish I had known that I wouldn't date for 20 months and not go out so much due to being extremely self-conscious from wearing the braces. However, I have no regrets about undergoing treatment and with a debonding date coming up, I can't wait to be on the dating scene again :wink:

thx Megan11, There still are some minor issues that I would really really like to see sorted out. Especially my upper right lateral incisor which is sort of indented. However, I'm not sure if it can be sorted out in this life and neither is my ortho... In any event I'm keeping hope alive and looking...

Hi Andromeda,

'The Devil is in the details' as the saying goes. I'm curious to see what my own Devil is going to be.....
But I hope for you that your tooth contact issue and slant will be sorted out so that you can finish AND be happy with the result. :thumbsup:

hi guys :) time for a little update. Those turbo bites have really been a smart move. Gaps in upper teeth are practically closed. A gap has opened between upper left lateral incisor and canine but this should close easily within the next weeks. My ortho changed the wire and also gave me a triple pow...
