    Hi Mike,

    Cheers. Did you look at my pics? The two "before" ones slightly reminded me of your 'beefcake' photo <grin.>

    The hubby & I were crowded in the bathroom the night before my appointment finally getting around to taking clear pics (how many months had I to do this?) and as I thought they would be of the tooth area I was kinda/sorta in my birthday suit.

Been A While.. Picture Post Braces

by mikeg on 03-12-2013 at 06:03 PM
So I have had my braces off almost a year I believe.... I came along away and I'm glad I went through with it... Getting braces at 30 wasn't too appealing, but my bite is much better now, no tmj, chew good etc. So here's a before and after...

Here's my bite when I got my braces

Here's my bite today


Quick Update with pics

Have had my braces off for around 6 months now. I have a hawley retainer up top and the perm retainer in the lowers. I was a bit worried at first about the lower retainer being annoying, but it has worked out. Flossing around it sucks, but I make do and it is better than wearing an acutal retainer for sure.

Here's a quick pic.


6 more weeks?

Well I had an appointment this morning. Kinda a little embarrassing because I had a huge canker sore inside my lower lip from where the rubber band and bracket rubs on it. I was considering delaying the appointment till it went away, but I'm sure they see them all the time, so I said eff it and went in. The doc and staff just worked around that nasty thing...

Anyway, He tied me up with 2 rubber bands that I have to wear "as much as possible" to bring my upper teeth down

Well I have an appointment on May 1st, but thought I'd update my blog while I have the time.

I had my surgery on November 30th. So I'm about 5 months out. I'd say the swelling is 90% gone. I can still tell on the left cheek there is some. I have no complaints now, just kinda wanna get these off asap. MY ortho is still working with my back molars, applying torque. He is undoing what the palatal expander did when I was in my early 20's the first time around. The expander

Update with PIC

So I believe I am about 3 months away from getting my braces off. The orthodontist is working some "torque" adjustments on my molars to bring them in. Unfortunately this is a slow process in orthodontics. I'm quite ready to get these off and put this behind me.

Overall my bite feels great and I'm happy with the results.
