2nd Round @ 41

#1 Post by BlondeCam »

Tomorrow is the big day! I'd love to figure out how to post pics. Getting ceramic uppers and metal lowers. Though Ortho said there's a possibility of using ceramic lowers. We will see tomorrow. Had my teeth cleaned today and am ready to get this party started. Going to finally get rid of my front snaggle tooth.

There's a thread on photos here: http://www.archwired.com/phpbb2/viewtop ... 20&t=11741 I find it a bit difficult to get the sizing right with photobucket, but it gives the idea. I hadn't used my account since the mid 2000's, lol. I'm so excited for you! I'm only two weeks or so in, so we'll be buddies! :jump:

Good Luck blondecam
Your teeth and smile are really pretty. I bet the top teeth will straighten out fairly fast :D

Thank you!!! I sure hope so! Only have brackets on the front 8 of both arches since I'm a "re-treat".
So far it feels like my bottom have moved a bit. Naturally it's the top that drive me berserk. Ha!!!

That's amazing for two weeks! It's always encouraging to see movement straight away!

2nd adjustment, 2 months in, 3rd wire.. 20 gauge steel wire this time. Some light IPR on front two teeth and got a power chain.
So happy at the moment with how they look and love the white chain. Hope it doesn't stain too badly. Ortho wants to see me again at the end of the month. He asked if I was opposed to speeding up my progress. Well absolutely not :HugeGrin:Image

Wow! It looks like you've had great progress already! What kind of braces did you get?

Standard ceramic uppers and steel lowers. Yesterday was the first time I tried white for the o rings or this case it was a power chain. I've been choosing the silver or grey ligatures out of fear of staining.
Since I'm going back in two weeks for a bit more IPR I'll get it changed again. I love the way the white looks.

I really like the look of the white also. Was there trouble with them staining?
