BRACE FACE NO MORE

Was feeling rather apprehrensive fore the entire thing.
Can't believe it's actually happening. I kinda forgot how it was like without braces.
My teeth wasn't very crooked as you can see in the photos below.
It's just the lower set of teeth that looked like tornado swept passed. 
Otherwise, quite passable riiiiiiiiight hahahahahaa.

Left: Upper set of teeth
Right: Lower set of teeth

Total cost: Less than $3K
Where? Emmanuel Dental Surgery
How long? Less than a year! (for me)

  5. Hey Irina!

    which branch did you get your braces done?
    total cost of <$3k is pretty cheap!

    is the cost on a case to case basis or in general?

  7. Hi Irina!

    May I know if you had to extract any teeth? I am thinking of making braces at Emmanuel Dental Surgery too but a bit hesitant when I think about having to extract my teeth.

    Look forward to your reply. Thanks!

  9. Hi, may I know if this clinic is really good? I mean, after so long of taking out the braces, does your teeth goes out of shape or is it still straight? I've heard from my friend that after she took out her braces, her teeth crooked back after a few months. Thank you! :)

    1. Hey! I love my clinic. Mine is still straight because I wear an inner retainer! ;-) if you opt for that I think the chances of your teeth becoming crooked is quite low!

  11. Do you get headaches from wearing braces? I've been planning to wear one since I was a teenager.But since I have migraines on a daily basis, I've been putting it off.

    1. I didn't rmb having any headaches. Maybe your braces was tightened too tight! You can, perhaps, go down for a consult and see if there's any relation to migraine. From my knowledge, migraine is rather serious and I don't think it's formed due to braces.

    1. Hello Claudia! I didn't remember waiting very long then but I heard it is hard to secure an appt with this orthodontist now. Still, why not give it a try :-) He offers one of the cheapest rates.
