    Braces Off! [Photos]

    Hi!
    I used to post on this forum quite often, but sadly, I haven't been able to make the effort as of recent. So, I hope you'll accept my sincere apologies for these photos being almost eight months late. However, I was at the orthodontist today, and I got the great news that I only have to wear my retainers at night now. It made me nostalgic for the days of old when I could post on this forum after an appointment about adjustments or new elastics. Just one of those "braces" things, huh? For reference, I had severe overjet and overbite, so my treatment consisted of removing only the upper bicuspids, a nance appliance for six months, class II elastics, and more power chains than you can count. I was in traditional metal braces for a little over two years. Please understand that before I started treatment, I refused to take any photos showing my teeth because it was not something I was comfortable with. My teeth were my greatest insecurity, even having been bullied over them, so the thought of them being "immortalized", if you will, didn't sit well with me. I apologize, too, for the lack of progress photos.
    In closing, I'd like to say how grateful I am to have been able to receive orthodontic treatment. It's a hassle, it can be a nuisance, and it can be downright painful, but it's still so important to remember that it's a luxury, and not one afforded by many. So, wherever you are on your orthodontic journey, I wish you the best of luck and many more smiles to come!
