My orthodontist has been telling me he thought we could take them off by the wedding so I've been really excited, I didn't want to have braces in my wedding photos..yuck. But I went back this week for what should have been the last adjustment and I was told it would be at least another 3 months. Wedding is in 2. So that sucks. Also though, I was seen by the new orthodontist that is now working in the office as well, so feel like he wasn't really clued into the fact that I'd already been told there was a good chance of getting them off in time. I feel like my regular ortho might have told me otherwise. I don't really get it because I think my teeth look perfect as of now and given the choice I'd have them taken off immediately. I don't really see what other movement still needs to happen. If there were still gaps and things I'd be fine with it, no sense spending all that money just to have them not fixed completely. It already sucks in general having braces as an adult.
I went ahead and scheduled an appointment for the week before my wedding, just in case. Hopefully I can get the regular ortho to look at them and he will be willing to take them off.
Still I'm really sad that they may not be off in time. I kind of wish we had chosen a later date, but we really wanted a fall wedding and didn't want to wait 2 years to be married.
Also FI says he really misses this gap I had, he always thought it was cute and endearing, even though I hated it. sigh...just can't win.
