Re: My 4th Christmas with braces and I'm 25- I want them off

It's my opinion that you CAN. My Ortho was going for perfection and we spent over 6 months trying to move one tooth. I was ready to tell him I quit and of course that tooth moved so here I am being debanded in a little over a week. Just talk with her next time and tell her you are ready to finish tr...

Re: 6 Months with braces! I am so happy with my progress

Thank you! It was very noticeable for about 4 days but now I don't even think about it. I did not need the frenectomy but may get it later. This is my second round of braces as an adult. I've spent over $10,000 now completely out of pocket and will gladly wear permanent retainers if it means I will ...

Re: "But your teeth are fine! Why waste money?"

I get comments like that all the time! It was really starting to get on my nerves when people would say "I didn't notice you needed them" or "Your teeth don't look that bad." The comments are not helpful people! I've just started ignoring those comments b/c people don't see or know about the overcr...

I know, I ...

Re: 6 Months with braces! I am so happy with my progress

Thank you!!! :) I started with a very large diastema up top but very little off with my bite. So he's warned me that my teeth REALLY want that gap there. So bonded on top only, Hawleys top and bottom. That's how he does it I suppose! He says he wants to ensure its a perfect fit. So I got a mold for ...

I didn't ask.

Maybe because I'm going to be a "nighttime for life" wearer??
