Down to the wire!

The brace is due to come off in about 36 hours, but the drama continues to the end!

Last Tuesday, and with a week to go to debrace day, I attended my latest adjustment and pointed out the substantial gap on my top left which had not moved a milimeter, despite reassurances in my previous appointment that it would be gone in plenty of time

Dr H got to work lacing on wires and attaching powerchains, shaving down the canine tooth as he suspected the gap was being held open by the lower teeth. He then announced that the gap 'might' be gone in time. Might? Might?? I pointed out this pesky gap two weeks ago so i'm a bit miffed that they havn't done more about it by now.

So, with 36 hours to go how is it looking?

It's definitely narrowed, but as you can see, it's still there, what a frigging embuggerance!

TBH, its not all hugely noticable from afar, but after more than two years of dental work and lots of £££££ i'd expect my nashers to be pretty much perfect by now.

So on Tuesday the bottom brace will definitely be coming off, but short of some miraculous gap-closing divine intervention it looks like i'm stuck with the grill for christmas dinner number three. A. had a restaurant booked for our celebration of the end of the process but i've told him to cancel it - should have known that this journey would have one final trick up its sleeve :(

Well, my only advice for you is to be patient. If you ever get the chance to have the gap between your teeth cleaned, do so to avoid cavities. But as for your braces, you can only wait 2 weeks for the perfect result.

It’s been two years already, and well, as I look at your profile picture, I can see that you now have beautiful teeth and a gorgeous smile! ;) All those pain and sacrifice has paid off!. Sometimes, it’s just really takes time order for us to achieve a fantastic result. Kudos for succeeding on this journey! :D

I have a problem too, which is concerned about teeth gap. I don't want to use braces, so my friend recommend me to use Orthofill. So I tried it and it's really effective. I'm really satisfied with the results.
