Re: Closing a large diastema

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...

Re: OK--This was not the plan!

My orthodontist wants to put a cemented retainer behind my front teeth and some kind of Essix thing for the bottoms. Any thoughts or information about a bonded upper retainer? I've read somewhere that they have a pretty high failure rate? I'm scheduled to get my braces off on December 8th!!! Whoo Ho...

Re: Getting Braces At The Age of 54!

I also wanted to mention that I have finally found someone to be part of my life. He seems absolutely oblivious to all my hardware and tells me that he thinks I'm beautiful. I honestly think he's the one I've been waiting for and searching for since my husband passed away 8 years ago. Wish me luck!

Re: Sunshiney Saga

I had to come back for another look. Your teeth look just gorgeous. I can hardly believe that it's the same set of teeth. Brava, girlfriend!

Re: Sunshiney Saga

Oh, my goodness, what a difference! It's like night and day. Darned right you should be happy. I'm happy for you. I don't think your right front tooth looks longer than the other, but I know it's a completely different ball of wax when it's your teeth you're looking at. No one else sees the flaws li...

Re: Sunshiney Saga

Even though I live in Canada where we have socialized medicine orthodontic treatment is not covered. I paid for my braces ($6,500 CDN) by myself. Not pleasant but it was worth it! :D
