lowers almost fully braced!

I'm 4 teeth short of being fully braced: http://www.burningmobius.com/PICS/Ortho/11.08/first%20lower%20AW%20small.jpg I have to wait until my overbite isn't so heinous before they put the last 4 brackets on. I got my 3's cuffed, plus brackets on my 4's and 5's : http://www.burningmobius.com/PICS/Or...

melissa , I was just catching up on your progress. I'm very happy that you decided to switch to a different Ortho. No one should accept being treated that way and you absolutely did the right thing. I look forward to hearing how your new Ortho treatment goes. Your teeth look wonderful, btw :) I hop...

MIA update

At long last I've had some time to sit down and update my progress. I still only have my uppers on, but I've finally graduated to a square archwire. This happened last week, in fact. It took FOREVER to get my 4's to rotate. I'll take a picture later this week. It's pretty buff and was accompanied by...

Fluffy, That canine is going on a road trip! I read that it takes 2 weeks for bone to break down and twice that to build up again. My guess it the itching you're feeling is that process going on, so I hope it stays itchy until that canine pulls into the garage at home ;) It's really great to have th...

Hi Shannon, Congratulations on getting braced. You'll look back on this years from now and wonder what all the fuss was about, especially since your teeth look absolutely fabulous now :) Your teeth are such a nice white color! Your teeth are going to go through all kinds of weird gymnastics starting...

jenny , an early 6 month anniversary congratulations. :-)o I'll be out of the country on the actual date so I didn't want to miss the opportunity :) It's great news that you've learned to love your braces. Results sure do help, eh? :) Your arches are both looking amazing. At times, you may not noti...

Shannon , I should try to take a picture of the gap that's been growing on my lower arch (but only on one side, DOH! ). I'm not sure what the hold-up is on the other side, but they're not moving at all :( Are you getting pretty good symmetry in your gaps? Yah, those darn expanders are a total pain....

melissa , those pics sure are inspiring! I live in fear of when my lowers get braced. They're such a mess. Your teeth are looking quite amazingly good. That little coil is going to make a lot of room very quickly, as you've not doubt seen :) It's excellent news that your treatment can be accelerate...

Twinjoy , I'm quite happy with the alignment of my upper arch so far. It's really odd to have all of my teeth more or less even with each other. That pink you are seeing is due to me being in too much of a hurry to take the pics. I had just eaten several otter pops and it stained my teeth a bit. Th...

Nicole, a belated happy b-day to you! You know, in some cultures drooling is a sign of good health...or is that cold noses? Glad to hear you got through your extractions without any complications. Those are some pretty nifty powerchains you've got :) You'll be surprised (pleasantly) how fast they cl...

Shannon, that's some impressive movement! Those first couple of days, post-adjustment, are the tough ones. How are the expanders doing? Are you seeing any significant gaps forming?
