of Zuhaida from Malaysia
(everybody calls her Zue), is 27 and lives in Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia. She works as an application technologist with
Petronas, the national oil & gas company. She has had her
braces almost one year, since January 2003.
Zue says, "I have
been waiting since high school to get braces because my
problem was that I didn't have enough teeth. There are
gaps between the teeth especially on the upper ones. But I had
to wait until my wisdom teeth came out before the ortho said
it is time. Oh well, better late than never :-)
"Now, almost a
year later, I can see big changes. My front teeth have no gaps
whatsoever, but the next step would be fitting me with
implants or something to fill the gap where the REAL tooth
should have been (You can see the gaps on the photo) I think I
am missing about 2-3 of em :-)
"I am at the power
chain stage, and the 3rd stage wire. My ortho told me I would
be fitted with the rubber bands next adjustment, uh oh!
"I don't have any close
ups of my teeth, but I hope to send some in soon. "
