Re: Oldfart Orthodontic Diary

Yeah, that does suck, I agree. But look at it this way, you are going to have to finish your treatment one way or the other and you've already made great strides. Just try not to think about the money it is costing you (even though it is a fortune, isn't it?) it will all be worth it when you finally...

Re: Oldfart Orthodontic Diary

It's coming along quite nicely, I think. Quite a set of hardware you've got there, though! Keep your chin up! :lol:

Re: Oldfart Orthodontic Diary

Try not to focus on that. I assure you that all the angst will be worth it when you finally cross the finish line!

Re: Closing a large diastema

Hi, Thank you! Yes, I am very, very happy. They put bonded retainers behind my two top front teeth and behind the front bottom teeth. I am going back this afternoon around 3:30 to pick up 2 Essix retainers to wear at night in bed, I think. He did not think he was going to be able to close the space ...

Re: Oldfart Orthodontic Diary

I am not going to be able to have the "full braces" experience. I am not going to get elastics. My orthodontist keeps raving about how wonderful my bite is. So, I'm scheduled to get mine off on December 8th. Just hoping that the small gap on the bottom will close between now and then.

Re: Getting Braces At The Age of 54!

Thanks! Yes, I know. In fact, the whole two years has gone by incredibly quickly. I just hope I don't miss them too much when they're gone but I don't really think that will happen!

Re: OK--This was not the plan!

Good to know, plugnickel69. Thanks for the info. But is it hard to floss? I am looking forward to being able to floss my teeth again without a floss threader.

Re: Getting Braces At The Age of 54!

I am scheduled to get my braces off on December 8!!! I am SO happy. My orthodontist is now going about trying to give me a little bit of an overbite so that when they put in the bonded retainer behind my upper incisors I won't be bashing into it every time I close my mouth. So, right now I have a bi...
