I’m turning 30 in a few months, and getting my smile fixed was on my list of things I have been wanting to accomplish by then. My teeth have been a huge insecurity of mine since I was about 20 years old and I broke two of them. ¬†That caused a lot of shifting as I didn’t have dental insurance and never got implants or a bridge to replace the lost teeth. They have progressively gotten worse, and I’ve become more and more embarrassed by them.

As posted earlier, I had my first orthodontic consultation at MacDonald Orthodontics and I was nothing short of delighted.¬†Looks like I’m finally on my way to loving my smile again! I actually walked out of the appointment and cried for 10 minutes in my car because I was so overwhelmed and happy that it was actually going to happen. It had always seemed so out of reach.

During all my research I found video blogs on YouTube to be particularly helpful. It was interesting to hear first hand how people reacted to getting their braces an what their experiences were like. I have decided to do the same- I’m going to be video blogging my entire experience. I’m even going to ask Dr. MacDonald if he’ll let me film part of me getting my braces put on, and maybe one or two of my wire changes.

Here’s my first video, and I’ll be posting more as I go. I’m looking at mid July for getting them put on, as I need to get a few fillings and such before then. If you want to subscribe, here’s a link to my channel
