Re:

Thank you abaglady and roost22 ! Orange juice? Oh my goodness... I love that, too. :( The ortho assistant automatically put the clear ligs on me because... in her words... "Well, since you changed to ceramic, I figured you wanted them to look inconspicuous." So, she didn't even give me a chance to ...

I am from Ecuador but have been in the US for over 10 years. I had braces back home but I was a rebel teenager and took them off myself with pliers :oops: so now, I am paying the consequences again.

I was told 12 to 16 months and it has been almost 21 and still counting. I think your settling wires are going to be finish wires, usually a smallerwire like .018 and bent to fit your teeth together. Seems like ortho's like to lie

alot.

same here, almost done, 10 days to 2 weeks
