Patient Spotlight: My 6 Month Smile Journey

Before and After 6 Month Smile

Hello All!! 

I am so excited to share that the bottom braces have now been removed and my permanent retainer has been put in place!!  It has been a little strange getting used to the retainer, but gets better every day. The hardest part has been flossing under it, but with practice that is getting easier as well. I really appreciated the hygienist taking the time to show me how to do that!  It has been exactly 6 months and those bottom teeth look AWESOME!!! 

The dentist tells me that since the top teeth move more quickly that it should only be a few more weeks before the uppers come off!  My family and friends are amazed with the results and a few are thinking of having the 6 month smiles for themselves!  Every few weeks I have to have to go in for an appointment to put “chains “on the top ones to keep them moving right along. They are sore for a few days after that visit, but some ibuprofen does the trick. Hopefully by the next blog, I will be ready to get those uppers off!!

Keep reading my blog to follow my smile journey!  Until next time, Kelly!
