Callie Gets Her Braces On!

In May Callie Blackwell, began her “Brace Adventure” at Imagix Dental in Norcross. Getting braces on is a fairly standard process for preteens like her. The difference here?  She’ll be sharing her dental journey on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, in an effort to show others that getting braces is not traumatic.

Callie, a brave 13 year old entering Pinckneyville Middle School this August, has accepted the challenge of being interviewed, photographed and video taped throughout her entire 20 month treatment; which began in May during her initial consult at Imagix.

At her first appointment, Orthodontist Dr. Wes Fleming charted Callie’s previous dental progress to provide a careful evaluation for her specific needs.  Dr. Fleming found that Callie had a mild overbite, a few permanent teeth that still had not descended, as well as a few teeth that didn’t come in straight. Dr. Fleming also explained that there were a few teeth that needed fillings adjusted before the braces could be put on. Imagix Dental took care of all the pre-orthodontic care and Callie was ready to go.

Two weeks later, her braces were placed. Callie brought friend Mary Grace Tipton, who also wears braces put on at Imagix Dental, for support. Mary Grace encouraged Callie that having braces put on would make her teeth look great and that Imagix would make the experience great for her.

As Callie came out of the office, with her new blue braces, her excitement was evident, it was definitely a colorful smile.

Even though it was only a short appointment, the effects on her smile will last Callie’s entire life. Her braces and doctors at Imagix are sure to make her smile picture perfect.

Callie and Imagix Dental hope to show others during the next 20 months that there is nothing to fear about getting braces. It’s almost a rite of passage that has gotten easier over the years.
