So close, yet so far

I went in for my last check before de-bracing just to make sure it all looked okay. I had almost convinced myself that he would look and say, yup they are great and take them off. That didn't happen. This will be the longest week ever! Only about six days to go. I also scheduled my gum recontouring for the same day so I'll have big, naked teeth in no time!

I wish you all and your families I happy Thanksgiving. May you all have a safe holiday.

Almost a brace free Turkey Day

I was really hoping that my braces would be off in time to rip through some corn on the cob for Thanksgiving, but its not going to happen. No biggie, there is one tooth that needs to come down just a bit more to close the bite all the way. I did get my permanent retainer put in on the bottom so my teeth are double wired. I've got a new band on the left and hopefully that will do it. I go back in two weeks for a quick check and then I get my braces off on December 2!! Only three weeks to go! At least I'll have them off in time for the office Christmas party.
