I started my braces adventure

#1 Post by sebasbrink »

Having a shame about my crooked smile, I decided to have braces some time ago. It will be a process of 2 years, one gap year and then probably 2 to 4 years again. The gap year is to look what my teeth will do, since I don't want to have a permanent retainer. The top braces are placed already :D feels tight but good. Will try to find a way to upload a photo!

Don't have the privileges to upload a photo yet. Will try to describe my current teeth situation: I have a diastema, which does not really bother, but the rest of my teeth are just not straight enough to make it a pleasant look. My arches are a bit thight, they probably be broadened during the proces and I have a deep bite. Therefore they have to move up my front upper teeth by a few millimeter before they can place the bottom brackets. Otherwise I could bite them off. They also offered to place some brackets behind the front teeth, turbos they're called if I remember correctly, but that would affect my speech they say. It would drop half a year of treatment though, but since I have some years to come, I prefer it this way.

The braces are metal by the way, without colored elastics unfortunately!! They are a new kind, self closing, which is kinda cool. They have some colored spots on them, but that will wear off the ortho said.

Great that you got braces and hope your journey goes well! I got my braces 6 months ago, for the first time at 42.
