    Sorry, never mind to my previous entry! I figured it out. Hope your treatment is going well! :)

    Hi, I just had a question about uploading pictures in your blog. Are you able to just insert a picture by uploading it to a site and then placing the link between [img][/img] brackets? Thanks! :)

    Well I have a large gap between my top front teeth (had it since birth basically... ) so there will be some excess gum tissue kind of squeezed between my front incisors when they're eventually pushed all the way together (sounds gross I know!! lol). My ortho said it can probably be lasered off or some other type of mild removal procedure. I'm assuming it costs extra... Although I'm already paying $8500 so it'd be nice if it was included! :P I think it's necessary for the tissue to be removed though, so then again maybe it's included in my treatment package. My ortho says my teeth are nice and big... but I think they're a bit on the small side- like you, I think big teeth look better than small teeth do!

    Hey! Great pics you posted in your blog. I want to post some pics on my blog too, but I've completely forgotten how to use the uploading site that I used to (like 6 years ago...). Which site do you use if I may ask?

    You will do great. The best thing to do is keep everything clean. The healthier everything is, the faster teeth move. Best wishes, drd

Day 2 of Essix Retainers.

by lightskinnnn38 on 12-13-2012 at 04:21 PM
As I'm on my 2nd day of retainers let me tell you how I feel about them. I HATE THEM. Well not both, just my lower retainer. It's cutting up the sides of my tongue, which in turn is making it difficult to eat. Not to mention that my molars are sore from the retainers! It's weird how it's just my molars though, but whatever.

Other than that I'm used to the feel of them in my mouth, but I'm still slurring some words. *sigh* I can't wait to pick up my lower Hawley retainer next Fri!

Retainers... ugh.

by lightskinnnn38 on 12-12-2012 at 01:36 PM
So I picked up my Essix retainers yesterday. My upper retainer fits fine, but my lower ones are a whole other issue. Because my lower teeth are so small, and some of my teeth are chipped, the essix can't fully wrap around my teeth tightly so it was slightly loose. It's gotten a lot better since yesterday, but they want to make sure my teeth don't move. So now I have to get a Hawley retainer on my bottom teeth and keep my current Essix on my top teeth. Weird huh?

As for wearing my

MY BRACES ARE OFF!!!! Tons of pics!!

What a magical, fantastical, amaze-balls feeling it is to run your tongue across your naked teeth!



I got to my appointment and they took me back around 1:05pm. My orthodontist wanted to look at my teeth one last time to make sure they looked okay, which they did, and I was good to go. My assistant was amazing and she was so concerned with making sure I was comfortable and that my teeth look great.

Tomorrow is the BIG day!!! My de-banding!!!! Woohoo!

by lightskinnnn38 on 12-03-2012 at 03:16 PM
I GET MY BRACES OFF TOMORROW!!

FINALLY!

I'm excited (read: extremely, absolutely, 100% freaking ecstatic!) and nervous at the same time. I have heard stories of people with braces having white marks on their teeth after they get their braces off. I think I did a good job of cleaning my teeth while in braces, but a part of me is nervous about the stains!

My teeth, IMO, look great. They are very straight, my upper teeth aren't slanted anymore, and my bite

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What the... IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING??! OMG!!!!!!!!!

In 4 (hopefully short) weeks on December 4, 2012 at approximately 2pm I will be BRACE FREE!!!

I went into my adjustment this afternoon pretty confident my teeth were near finished, and when my ortho looked at my teeth he said "I like it!" But he's a perfectionist so he's going to try and close my open bite just a LITTLE BIT more on my right side. Hey, who am I
