of Christina from Texas, USA
is 23 years old. She has been in the US Army for 5 years and
was recently deployed.
Christina says, "You can
tell from the picture of me without braces that my teeth were
not that bad, but there were some bad crowding in some areas.
My dentist at home kept telling me that I have no spaces in
between my back molars. I had so many watches for cavities
that I decided to talk to an orthodontist in my area to see
what could be done. So here I am 7 months later and I see so
many differences already!!! And I can actually fit floss
through my back molars now...YEA!!! "
"I was told at first
that I'd be in braces 14 months, but now that I'm deployed
it'll probably add another 5 or 6 months to the process.
I'm trying to convince my orthodontist to tighten me up every
3 or 4 weeks when I get back to put me back in schedule.
I"ll cross my fingers and hope he says yes!"
"Unfortunately I don't have
any recent pictures because I am deployed so it won't be
before October that I will be able to get more pictures. But I
will send more pictures to be added when I can, I
