Hey everyone! I went to the ortho on March 8th and he said everything looked great! I know they arent perfect, but I think I would rather get them off like they are than keep waiting. So, he said I have to go back in 6 weeks for my next to last appt. They will take the molds and get everything ready for the final appt. that should be a few weeks after that appt.!!! I am sooo excited! I only have to wear rubber bands at night, but I have been wearing them whenever possible. This time I got blue bands and I really like them. I can't believe I never got them before. Well, in April it will be 1 year that I have had my braces on. My original term was for 31 months! Oh I did ask about the filing...that is what I am really excited about! He said he will file them when I get them off.
Well, thats really about it. Nothing new except I am pretty sure within 8 weeks I will have them off!! If you have any questions please ask.
Thanks Again,

So sorry I havent posted anything in such a long time. I recently moved to the big city of Austin. But now I am all settled in and things are going great.
As for the braces...
I went to the orthodontist in January and he said I should get them off in May or June!!! So I am thrilled! He said they are just about done and since I have moved they should be fine to take off then. I go back in March and then we will see for sure how things look. I only have to wear the elastics at night, but sometimes I wear them during the day as well...I want them off asap!! :) One reason I want them off...my teeth have gotten pretty yellow! :( I want to be able to use crest whitening strips again! I use whitening toothpaste but it doesnt work. Oh well..
They dont really have much else to move other than the tooth next to the big front tooth.
I hope he files them soon so I can really see how they will look.
Im so excited.
I will be going back to Las Vegas in June so my fingers are crossed they will be off by then!
Well thanks for reading and again I apologize its been so long.
I will update again in March.
Thanks again,
