The Big Day Revealed

October 22, 2007 at 3:38 pm (Uncategorized)

I realized late last night that some of you that don’t know me well may be thinking you’ll get a ultrasound picture or something as my big announcement. That is not it.

Today was the end of a 20 month journey – to the Land of Straight Teeth.
(You’ll have to excuse the totally cheesy self-portrait – the only photographer available was 4)


This is me with no braces and straight teeth 🙂

It feels wonderful to have them off. The put permanent retainers on both the top and the bottom. It’s much different than friends my age who have them. It’s just a thin wire that’s bonded to the back of the teeth – the front 6 or so and the top 4. Then I will also get clear retainers (sort of like Invisalign braces) to wear all the time for about 6 months – then just at night. Oh, the advancements of retainers in the last 20 years 🙂

I can’t decide what to eat first – a big juicy burger, perhaps some carmel?

    Yea for you! You inspired me to take the plunge myself. I figured I’m going to be at the orthodontist’s office with Nathon anyway. So, I have 9-12 months of treatment ahead of me until I reach the Land of Straight Teeth. Can’t wait for my “Big Day” too – Enjoy some carmel for me until then!

    Congrats! I have that same thing bonded to the back of my lower teeth. I had braces for the second time about 2 years ago. I love my straight teeth!

    Having the privelege of seeing you in person I must say the straightness of your teeth is amazing to behold! Sheer beauty!
