Today’s appointment was for assessing for debracing...and I’m good to go! Next appointment the braces will come off, permanent retainers will go on, impressions will be made, and I will pick up my Essix retainers the same day!

The countdown for Feb 8 is on!

(Originally was going to have it off on Feb 7, which would’ve made it an even 22 months in braces, but I just couldn’t make it that day! Still, it’s great news!)

Good luck to those still in braces...your time will come soon enough!

Actual time in braces: 22 months and 1 day
Reason: Straighten teeth, correct crossbite and edge-to-edge bite

I feel like there will be a learning curve with retainers! But it will be the next phase in braces and I’m looking forward to it :jump:

Yeees, congratulations! I'll get impressions made Jan 31 and debracing will be hopefully like a week after so perhaps we'll get the same date. :)

I’ve got to say I’m envious. I’m fed up wearing braces and can’t wait for that final appointment.

Congrats! It's always great to see people on the other end of the process (as I just started). Looking forward to seeing before/after pics.

Everything going as scheduled for you?

I had my molds appointment yesterday but it turns out my ortho wants to correct one small detail that was bugging me, so I'm in braces for another almost 2 months. I'm so sad. :(

That’s frustrating! Hopefully by the end of the 2 months you’ll be braces free!

As far as I know, I’m still getting my braces off on the 8th (eek! That’s next Friday).

How did it go for you?!
