braces newbie wants to say hello

#1 Post by la7ush »

Hi All,

I'm 29 years old male and finally yesterday I've got my braces put on. Due to the nature of my work, I've decided to go for more discrete option and picked the damon clear braces.

The whole process took less than an hour and it was completely painless.

I have crowding and protrusion on my upper and lower jaw and quite big overbite on top jaw. My ortho believes that I will need them on for at least 14 months.

I will upload some pics later today.

Hi Guys,

I am just after my first adjustment and things are progressing very good (according to my ortho).

I will post some update pictures over the weekend.

Also welcome to new brace faces and good luck with your treatment.
