Aww,dont b disappointed,i am sure ur ortho has a valid reason for doing things in stages
Yeah, I think so to. I'm worried about what will be done (extractions) and how the end result will look. You want to keep yourself motivated on how it will look when it is all finished but at the same time you don't want to expect a miracle ending up disappointed after two years.
Some pain in my front teeth today, was really wanting a sandwich when I got home from work but had to settle with some soup. Tomorrow I'm going to buy a bottle of nice Scottish whiskey. If I can't eat well, I will at least drink well. How do you reward your self?
After one week with metal in my mouth I have realised that biggest issue for me is not really having braces and people knowing about them. What I find uncomfortable is how the braces brings focus to my twisted teeth. I have always avoided the subject and tried to change the topic of conversation if people start talking about dentist or teeth. The good part is that now I don't need to be ashamed or make excuses for not getting it fixed and hopefully most people will recognize that.
Promised pictures, so here it at least one to start with. Does not show the overbite that they plan to fix with surgery.
