hello and welcome!

Good luck for the 17th. Remember to ask lots and lots of questions to your ortho. If you feel in control of your treatment it will be a better experience and you'll be more confident.

Everybody says it, but its true... it will be worth it in the end!!!

Lisa65; Yes..it was fun to see that you also had a headgear! cause i have never seen so many people who must wear that.
I should not wear brackets under the headgear.

commonpeople: Welcome. I'm another swede hanging around here. Hope that your first appointment went well. Hedgear are quite fascinating and I have wondered if it could have helped me moving my upper arch some. I'm using elastics to do that and it works quite well so it might be enough. :)

Yes you have to post them to a site like Photobucket or Imageshack and then copy the link into your Archwired post.

Then just add these image tags on either side of the link: and you're done :D
