anyone else have their Midline off?

Hey there-
wondering if anyone else out there has a midline that is off? My top Midline is a little off to the left. I read that it is hard to get aligned and that it takes over 12 months. My Ortho sentenced me to 18 months but not sure I'll be able to wait that long.

Re: Can I do it?

Thanks for posting this- it is very encouraging! i just got my braces full metal and they said 18 months. i am trying to think of it as just 12 months because 1/2 year more seems like forever.
how do your teeth look? are you satisfied?

Re: Got my braces on today

Hi there- also full metal jacket top and bottom. I got mine on Tuesday.
I've lots 3 pounds which is a nice side effect to have :-) but for me the hardest has been to be able to talk properly. My last name has an F and when i spell it out now, it sounds like an "S" LOL.
