Brace FREE!!!!! 3 Months Earlier

#1 Post by nikkibabie19 »

So i didnt post for the last two months....

Had an appointment in Feb and then another on March the 7th which lead to DEBANDED today....

Now go in for my app on the 7th March....did moulds for retainers.(surprise cuz no1 told me im almost done)

But didnt get my hopes up bcuz the doc was still adjusting the thing with my midline..
So he says if its not corrected by next visit he'll have to make some more adjustments...(oh well)

So go in today and VOILA!!!! deband time

Let me tell u....that was PAINFULL!!!

I tort there was some solution u spray on the glue to make it unstick......There was NO SUCH THING!!

But alls well that ends well!!!

BRACE FREE 3 MONTHS before the 2years!! Woohooo I dont get to spend another birthday in braces!!!

So i have upper and lower retainers....
Cant talk with them on...But getting used to itt...

Have to wear them 24hrs expect when im brushing my teeth.

Time for pics now......

Image
So the first two (in blue) is the start and end of my Feb adjustment (In the 2nd blue ligs pic everything is nice and level thisis jus before my March 7 apt)
The 2 teal pics is my March the 7th apt (sry the pic quality crappy)
and the last one is me in retainers today :D


Image
All about the retainer you can compare before and after pics (so i did the same shots)


Image
Jus my smile (no wires)
(So i still see a midline issue butthe doc says its an illusion because of how my teeth are shaped so when the retainers sit good i guess for my next visit in April he'll shave down and what not)

SO EXCITED..walked around my whole office today smiling and accepting compliments.....Had an awesome day :D

NIKKIBABE!! Congratulations!! I'm so happy to see that you have finally debanded!! Remember the old days when we were talking excitedly about closing our diastema? Phew, I guess that was over a year ago. But I still remember you!

Your smile is wonderful and you have super white teeth that i'm jealous of :mrgreen:
I noticed a little bit of mild overjet on your upper row of your teeth though, don't get it wrong - I have the same amount of overjet. But i'm wondering if this is actually normal ? Or would your orthodontist be addressing this any time soon?

By the way its my turn to be disbanded next friday!! Woohoo! Less than a week to go :-*

Hey vega! Yes I remember those days.....:D
Thank u very much. And im aslo thanking u for thinking my teeth looks white. It must be the lighting lolz. But thanks all the same.

Well the count down is on for you as well. I cant wait to see your pics.


With the overjet thing Im not sure. Im happy with the results. But will ask him. Cuz I kno he mentioned shaving a tooth and some minor adjustments in d time to come. So who know? I'll keep posting pics if things continue to change tho....

So i was brushing my teeth lastnight and when i took out my retainer and rinse my mouth out i felt this pain on the roof on my mouth...

Passed my tongue and felt nothing..

Started brushing and the toothbrush touched the same spot which was hurting...
So i put my finger in there and found a "sore/ bump" that hurts to the touch...

Im guessin the retainer caused it by rubbing against the roof of my mouth....Its pretty far back almost close to my last molar about a finger space away from where the teeth comes out of the gumline...but i have to keep using the retainer so i dont kno if it will get infected or something from all the food that gets caught in between the roof of my mouth and the retainer in between the times i brush my teeth...

At least it doesnt actively hurt when im wearing my retainer.....But still.....
