Sporting a new look with my hair. I have ceramic brackets on my teeth so they are a little less noticeable than the metal ones. I am to have two teeth extracted from my bottom row before the all of the bottom braces can be put on. Overall, I am not dissatisfied with the experience of braces. I do experience mild discomfort from time to time, but nothing that a nice chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc won't cure!
I have my teeth scheduled for removal soon. Not really happy about losing good teeth, but I have to trust the experience of the orthodontist. He says we need the room, so they have to go.
The rest of this process is just months and months of going to the orthodontist, getting adjustments and visiting the surgeon for an evaluation. I go to Seattle in Jan. 2014 to meet him and see what kind of time frame we are looking at.
So in the meantime, I am going to Hawaii...........
