Congrats on getting your braces, how do those brackets feel? One ortho I went to used them, but I opted for damons.

For the first few days I thought they were rough on the lips. At one point I thought one of the brackets had chipped since it felt super rough. But after a few more days it's not that bad, I no longer need dental wax.

I like the looks of your braces. I will be getting the In Ovations myself but just the 6 top ones that show in ceramic. The rest will be metal but that's because my bite is really off so the metal will be stronger for that. I am told I will be in mine for 30 months. It was nice to hear that it didn't take long before you got used to them.
07/14/14 - 4 spacers put in
07/25/14 - braces top and bottom put in minus 2 molar bands that they couldn't fit
9/11/14 - 2 spacers put in between the bottom back molars
9/19/14 - last 2 bottom molar bands in and all hooked up, new wire, started elastics too
10/14/14 - new square wire change and thick elastics
04/24/17 - braces removed!!! :BigGrin:

15 mos update, gaps are almost completely gone :)

Bottom braces changed to metal due to my teeth touching the ceramic brackets (did not want to risk tooth chipping).
