  1. My Braces Story - Lee Skittrall

    Hello everyone,
    I'm Lee,
    I am a 17 year old male in my last year of studying Creative media and I'd like to share my braces story with you all.

    So, in September/October of 2013 at the age of 17 and after many, many years of being told I was unable to have braces due to my gums (Gingivitis) my current dentist submitted me to an orthodontist to get braces.

    I decided this would be a perfect opportunity to film in a vlogging style my version of a life experience a lot of children, teenagers and even adults go through...
    Getting braces.

    If you have braces, have had braces, or are getting braces, I hope that in some way my videos can either help you, or at least you can relate to them.

    I wish to share my experience with the world (or those who see my story) and hopefully help as many people as I can.

    In total, I have done 5 specific volgs to braces, and they are as follows:

    The Reveal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SrbyRvmWmo

    Having Teeth Removed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9T9MRpaWPSQ

    Having Teeth Removed Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1_CKSiITPE

    The Actual Braces: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuf9Bw2MMu0

    and The Actual Braces Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArsyVTRA4ps

    I have also posted 2 extra videos (but they are only loosely connected to my progress), they are:

    Films, Braces and New Years Resolutions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfDAwBNQplo

    and my most recent video (as of 01/02/2014) Acting, Braces and the Internet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_15L5xiAq0

    I hope that you will all join me on my journey and can give some advice on having braces that both myself and others can benefit from.

    If I post any more content, I will add it here.

    I hope to hear from you all soon.

  13. So I've been asked a few times now, in a few different places, if I have an images or footage showing the development in my teeth over the first 4 months (nearly 5 now) of my treatment.

    Here is my answer to that question:
    Yes I do, over my videos I have shown my teeth at that stage, but more recently, I uploaded a video containing an image from the beginning of my treatment, through to my second check up.

    I'm really glad you're doing this for people. I thought about doing it myself, but didn't have the time (working two jobs).

    Thank you amab2001, that's exactly why I am doing it, because I currently have time to.

    I know of a few people including yourself who would make videos but simply don't have the time and that's why I use my time to do so.

    I'm glad you enjoy the videos, if I could be so cheeky as to ask, please like the videos if you actually like them, feel free to comment your experiences and please subscribe to see more.

  22. Hey Everyone,
    I'm finally back of schedule for my YouTube videos, so here's my latest braces video.

    I scheduled the video for upload on 20/07/2014 titled: Braces - 4th Check Up.

    In the video I talk about the 4th Orthodontic check up, what it entails and my experience.
