Strength to Smile - Johnson City, TN

I had always hated smiling because my bottom teeth...

I had always hated smiling because my bottom teeth were so crowded and overlapped. My insurance dropped the age limit on orthodontics so i knew it was time. I actually only have to pay around 1300 out of pocket. The first few months were tough. I kept breaking the wires in my sleep. Its been less than 5 months and they come off next week. After the first two weeks i was amazed at the change. My teeth are now almost perfect. I will post pics after they come off. Well worth it.

One week to go: I hope...

Today is July 5th. I have had my braces less that 5 months. My bottom teeth were extremely overlapped. Now as you can see, they are almost perfect. Hopefully Wed. they will come off. My dentist is awesome. I have gone to him for years and he has done amazing with my teeth. The only thing I hate is that I have gained a little weight due to my soft food choices. Most people lose a little weight. Regular braces may not be as difficult as far as coloring etc. I will post more if they are removed or will answer any questions anyone has.

Finally off

I had my braces taken off today. They polished off the glue which was painful due to the sensitivity. They made 2 different sets of molds. I went this afternoon and they had my temporary retainers ready. They look like invisilign trays and I am getting permanent retainers placed on the back in 3 weeks. I still have a few chips in my lower teeth that he will fix when my teeth do not hurt so badly. They also gave me an Optic White Professional whitening take home kit which is exciting. I did find out that if I lose a retainer it will cost me 150.00. So im going to be extra careful. I am very happy with my teeth and it took less than 5 months. My bottom teeth were extremely overlapped and now they are perfectly lined.My top front tooth still needs to push back some and they are using the temporary retainers to do that.
