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
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
