October 31, 2005

Approximately 8 hours after the dreaded appliances were installed.

Here's a link to the very nice web site of my ortho team. It is full of everything you always wanted to know (and some stuff you didn't ...) about orthodontics.

October 30, 2005

This is my unofficial "before" shot, taken at home as I sweat bullets. Tomorrow is the big day for installation.

I can't imagine how they will glue an appliance on that one lower tooth that sits so far back behind its' two neighbors.

This picture is actually rather kind to the 2 front teeth. They are temporary crowns and don't have the opacity of the expensive lab-produced kind. They were installed to better help the appliances hold on. After ortho, I will have permanent crowns remade.
