Retainers After Braces | Perminant and Temporary | Ashley Craig

Retainers After Braces: Permanent and Temporary:

GOT QUESTIONS? I just did a Q&A for this video.

My Viral Braces Transformation:

After my braces transformation, I was given two different kinds of retainers to wear.

The first retainer was a permanent one. This retainer consisted of a lingual wire being bonded behind my top 6 teeth. I will have to wear this retainer forever. I was given this retainer per my choice, so that I could further prevent my overcrowded top teeth from shifting in the future.

The second retainer I was given is a temporary one called the Essix Retainer. The Essix retainer looks similar to the commonly known Invisalign retainers. I have to wear the Essix retainer every night to prevent shifting. In the future I will be able to wear it every other night to just a few times a week for life.

My braces transformation is one of the most drastic and extreme dental cases you will find online. My teeth were very crowded on the top and bottom. I didn’t have any wisdom teeth. During my treatment I needed to have many different appliances in my mouth such as a bite plate, coils, and wires, in order to get my teeth straight.

When I got braces, I got the ceramic braces. I didn’t want to go with the traditional metal braces, and my teeth were far too crooked for clear braces or invisilign braces. I took a picture of my braces transformation progress before every orthodontics appointment; which was two months apart. This time lapse is of the first year with braces. I continued to have my braces for another year after this video before I got my braces off.

HOW I AFFORDED BRACES AS A POOR KID: I tried saving money but I was young and it was impossible to do. So I graduated high school and went off to college. Once I was in college I took out a loan for school and after paying for school I used my loan money to make a down payment of about 00. That enabled me to make monthly payments of 0 which with a job was doable. The total cost was ,600 without insurance. I just finished my last braces payment this month, now I am left with paying back my student loans. The way I did this was perfect for me. My life has gotten so much better. ANYONE can figure out a way to do this if they put there mind to it. It my take years like me but it feels so good to accomplish it.

Cash back in my pocket every time! Now it’s impossible to forget! You can also shop from your phone using the Ebates app! Every several months I get money back in my PayPal account! It’s so easy and free! Don’t worry, it’s not a scam. I wouldn’t do that to my pandas! Check out my channel for videos and panda testimonials! ♥
