Hi Gang,
Today is my 1 Year Metal Mouth Anniversary! I can't say I love my braces, but I love what they are doing to my teeth! I'm happy to be on the downhill slope of my 2 year journey!

For those of you thinking about getting braced, just do it!!!

Thanks, everyone! If I would have known that I would see such dramatic changes so quickly, I wouldn't have waited until I was almost 40 to get braces! There is still plenty of work to do with my teeth, but it will definitely be worth it in the end!
