I’m booked in for the first stage of the implant procedure next Thursday 🙂 8 Sleeps to go. Hoping that all goes well I should have a full smile by Australia Day 🙂 No more gap 🙂 In saying that I’ve had metal in my mouth long enough to know nothing is certain till it’s done.

Have you had braces for 12 years? I read your back posts (is that sad?) about your teeth, but it never really explained what was wrong with them in the first place. Anyway, sounds like you’ll have a beautiful smile soon. x
I’m missing the adult tooth where the gap is (the 12 if you speak dental lingo), I was born without it.
Gosh no, I’ve not had braces the entire time. This is my second time with braces – I’ve had this set on for 2 weeks short of 2 years. I’ve had a veritable mechanic shop of metal in my mouth moving teeth and roots in various directions.

In saying that though there is a number of innovations happening at the moment which are similar to training wheels for a bike but more like training screws, so you can get started with the process a lot younger.
Hope it all goes well today and the whole process goes smoothly for you.
