krennen - thanks for your input. I've heard that happens to a lot of people, sadly, sigh. When it was getting close to your 2.5 years that they estimated, did they let you know that your time was going to be extended or did they keep saying it would be soon? I think I could handle it if they need to...

I wore elastics for a few weeks last year and mine didn't have animal names. I know the one size was called Switzerland, and the other was a country too but can't remember what it was.

Andromeda's Braces Story

Hi everyone, I am 23 and have been in braces since March 2008. I have never posted any of my saga here before and I do not remember the details of all of my adjustment appointments, so I will just have to tell the general story. I took some photos of me a couple weeks after I got them on and those a...

Hi Beamer! I have the braces you are talking about. I started out with different braces but then I moved across the country in the middle of treatment. The ortho I chose in my new town uses the Innovation brackets and I chose to have the ceramic type. My front 8 teeth on top and my front 6 teeth on ...

Hi Danish, I know what you mean. I am "supposedly" about 2 months away from debonding and I have seen very little movement in the past several months. I don't really know what to do either except to trust my orthodontist, which I do because he has been doing this for such a long time. He teaches cla...

I have all of my wisdom teeth and am almost done with my braces treatment. I had to have a couple of bicuspids removed to make room in my mouth, but I thought it was interesting that they didn't choose the wisdom teeth instead. My bottom wisdom teeth are all the way in and are braced along with all ...

Thanks for your comments so far. Kirjax, that is really exciting that you got your debanding date today! Congrats - I'm so envious, hehe! I understand that a lot of people actually have theirs on longer than estimated and I should consider myself lucky if it is only extended a couple of months. I th...

Intro and question: When do you get a debanding date?

Hi everyone, I'm 23 and have been in braces for about 11 months; this is my first time in braces. Typical story - parents couldn't afford braces when I was growing up so I got them as soon as I could pay for them myself. I've been visiting the board since almost the beginning of my journey but never...
