  1. Hello Lovelies, I don't know if any of you have been in the same boat as me, but I have wanted braces for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately, my parents weren't in a place to provide that to me growing up. Now that I have a job with benefits (and co-ordinated benefits with my hubby- score!!) I am now able to achieve this dream of mine. I started my process May 2013. It has been so frustrating and frankly at some points excruciating. My biggest complaint is my expectations with time. I was told that the whole process should take 1.5-2 years. I am almost 1.5 years into this, and we only JUST put on brackets on my upper arch (my problem area). Every timeline that has been quoted to me so far has been way off. I had a palate expander (torture device) on for almost 7 months which was supposedly only going to be 3-4 months. Then, I had a distalizer on for almost 9 months which was supposed to be again only 3-4 months. I am wondering your experiences with this. Is this normal for all orthodontics? Or is it just my orthodontist, or because I am an adult (I am 27)? Honestly, I did no shopping around. I went to the orthodontist in my dentist's office and she showed me great results, quoted a great price and timeline and I agreed with her treatment plan and started right away. Now, I realize that she really doesn't have a lot of adult clients. I don't think I've seen any patient of her's over the age of 15. Did I make a big mistake? Does anyone have any words of advice or insight? If you want to know more about my experiences, I have three videos on youtube. Two are live, and one is currently being uploaded. www.youtube.com/user/skentel Cheers, Sara <3
