Holy Schnikies!

so i just got back from the ortho today... i'm getting my braces off on May 22nd!!!! 3 days before my graduation!! happy graduation to me! I go in on the 15th to make impressions for my retainers. They said they 'd put a rush order in so I can get them back in time so my braces could come off before graduation! yay!! I still don't trust in that date 100%...I guess I'm just used to stuff going wrong when I don't want them to!! But as of now they are coming off!!!

FINALLY!!!!

congratulations! First on graduating, second on getting your braces off! I will be in my first week post-op at that point. Do you have all the feeling back in your lips?

yay! congrats!
I can't wait until my bones heal and the tweaking begins and I really, really can't wait until the braces come off. Your teeth are going to feel like they're going to fall out, that's what it felt like when my orthodontist took my wires out and let me brush my teeth before he put in the surgical wires and hooks. :)
Congrats on graduating, I wish I was back in school...Aaaaaah...

Inspired by you and the other "Orthobloggers" that you've listed on that side-bar, I started a blog of my own, but I'm long-winded and don't really do pictures that well so yeah, it's just ranting to myself. :)

do you have any tips for replacing elastics I've removed? I can't seem to get it on the right hooks and I'm scared my follow-up today has been in vain...except for the new x-rays. Which is pretty cool, I think.

so, elastics help?
my blog is www.bluedevilborg.blogspot.com, please leave tips in the most recent post's comment area. I need help, or I have to go see my doctor again.

Oh, and did your elastics redefine "pain" for you too?

Reading this entry is such a relief. I have seen your photos without your braces, yet I want to look back on your ortho journey. I have a lot of questions for you and I hope you'll find time to answer some of these: are braces painful? Is there any treatment done before having the braces?

I'll be visiting a Chicago sedation dentist next week, and I hope to get some basic information from you before going to a dentist. Wish me luck!
