“If you want to know where to send your kids (or maybe even yourself) for braces, visit TLO. I became a patient nearly 2 1/2 years ago, and my teeth were no easy fixers. I had two small surgeries to open up my impacted canines in the roof of my mouth, wires strung up in my mouth, and brackets every which way. It wasn’t easy, lots of keeping up with appointments, keeping things clean, soreness, food getting caught in my braces. all the fun that comes with braces. but, as soon as I looked in the mirror with a brace free smile I would do it all again if I had to. I LOVE my smile. I cannot stop staring at my reflection, I just can’t believe how awesome my teeth look. Thank you so much to Dr. Leitner and his amazing team. You have changed my smile as well as my self-image.”
