Braces Update

Andrew and I had orthodontist appointments this week.  We've been going every other Tuesday for awhile now.  Dr. Lay activates our bull loops aka tightens the wire.

These appointments last about ten minutes and most of that includes chit-chat with Dr. Lay.

It all seems very anti-climatic.

But this week...

My gaps are almost completely closed.  It looks like I have one more appointment before I'm ready for a new wire.  Things are moving right along.  I'm about half-way through my braces adventures.

Andrew's gap is closed.  He got what will more than likely be his last wire.  He will probably get his braces off in the next few months.

I'll admit that makes me a little jealous.

It's not so bad doing the braces thing together.

I'm about to be alone on this journey.

But I guess it's not too bad.


  1. Your smile is looking gorgeous!!

  2. It can be real tough when your brace wires are tightened, but it doesn’t have to be that bad. Should you feel a bit of pain or discomfort, you can use oral anesthetic/OTC pain relief medications, use an ice pack, and drink cold water to ease the hassle. Good luck on the remainder of your journey, and thanks for sharing!
