Re: Rockin' the Braces Again at 32

yes you have nice teeth and a nice smile! they also look very white and clean! but the open bite i think is a problem that if you can has to be solved, it must be very frustrating to not be able to touch the incisors! good luck with your journey! i don´t have experience with open bite but i am sure ...

Re: Professionals with braces: thoughts or concerns?

getting braces is not unprofessional. get them. if you were a model or actor i would say to look about invisalign or lingual braces.

Re: when were you most annoyed/bored with your treatment?

as time passes by the most boring it becomes. i just don´t think about it at all. i live my life as usual, the only annoying thing is that i have to brush my teeth all the time and to lose 3 hours a month to visit my ortho.
