[Comments] (4) Anti-Dentite: Last night I was dutifully flossing under my permanent retainer and poof, the glue holding the right side of the bar died. Needless to say, my tongue had an interesting night playing with it.

This morning I went to my old orthodontist. I've had the bar 9 years. The doctor said it's really only necessary to keep it for 6 years, so he could take it out. So now all my teeth are finally free! He also told me some people like to keep the bottom bar forever, and he'd reglue it if I wanted. I declined. He didn't charge me, and I only had to wait in his lobby for 10 minutes. All in all, not a bad start to the day.

Woo hoo! Glad it worked out for you and that now your teeth are free!

Glad they took care of you. It did cost us a lot for that million dollar smile so I'm glad they didn't charge.

Mom: The lady at Kent's office was not very helpful but she told me that Alan's office is in Riverton so I went there instead. It is way out there on 12600 S and just west of Bangerter at 40th West. I didn't recognize Alan at all, and I don't think he recognized me either. But he pretended, to be nice I'm sure.

That office is huge and way nice. I didn't dare ask about Joseph, since he retired over 10 years ago and I have no idea if he's even still alive.

Are they both sons of Joseph? I know that Kent was the son with him over here on 59th South. I didn't realize how time had flown. Retired over 10 years ago--I guess that would be right. I remember he wasn't younger than me when you guys started going there. You all went to him (except Brook who didn't need braces).
