Another guy in retainers but he should be in braces

I talked to this guy who had retainers on the bottoms only. He said that he's been our out of braces for a bit now about a year. He wore retainers on the bottoms, but I did notice that his bottom arch was out of wack. At least two of his teeth needed to be put back in braces. He asked me about my treatment and I told him. He was surprised that my treatment time was so lengthy.

A guy in multi-colored braces

I spoke to a guy who was in braces for a year now and said that he has another 1.5 years to go. He had an operation to place a chain on an "eye" teeth so it could be pulled down. the chain was pure gold he said and cost a fortune.


He had metallic braces with different color ligatures, green and silver. He said he was trying to decide whether to do blue or silver on his next visit. After seeing me and seeing how blue looks he is convinced he will do blue next. He also said he had tried gold and totally loved it. He was really talkative and I think he enjoyed the fact that I was talking to him about braces.

He was really interested in my treatment and we talk for quite a while about it all. It was a good deal.

One more guy in braces

I did see another guy who I did not get a chance to talk with him. He had lots of spaces between his upper front arch so it looks like he would be in braces for a while. He had metallic braces with silver ligatures.

A guy in retainers

I saw a guy who had his retainers on the top only. I did not have a chance to talk to him though. He looked liked he was in his early 40s.

a normal morning

I brushed this morning and then had a breakfast of cereal with milk. No issues while brushing so all is well. I then put in my two elastics for the next 8 hours.
