My Braces Story - Lee Skittrall
« on: 05. March 2014, 16:29:13 PM »
Hello everyone,
I'm Lee,
I am a 17 year old male in my last year of studying Creative Media and I'd like to share my braces story with you all.

So, in September/October of 2013 at the age of 17 and after many, many years of being told I was unable to have braces due to my gums (Gingivitis) my current dentist submitted me to an orthodontist to get braces.

I decided this would be a perfect opportunity to film in a vlogging style my version of a life experience a lot of children, teenagers and even adults go through...
Getting braces.

If you have braces, have had braces, or are getting braces, I hope that in some way my videos can either help you, or at least you can relate to them.

I wish to share my experience with the world (or those who see my story) and hopefully help as many people as I can.

In total, I have done 7 specific vlogs to braces, and they are as follows:

The Reveal: http://anonym.to/?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SrbyRvmWmo

Having Teeth Removed: http://anonym.to/?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9T9MRpaWPSQ

Having Teeth Removed Part 2: http://anonym.to/?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1_CKSiITPE

The Actual Braces: http://anonym.to/?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuf9Bw2MMu0

The Actual Braces Part 2: http://anonym.to/?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArsyVTRA4ps

The First Check Up: http://anonym.to/?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lN9-hZyppYA

and my latest video (on the 05/03/2014)
Brackets, Wires and The Dentist: http://anonym.to/?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iii5fK803iY

I have also posted 2 extra videos (but they are only loosely connected to my progress), they are:

Films, Braces and New Year’s Resolutions: http://anonym.to/?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfDAwBNQplo

and Acting, Braces and the Internet: http://anonym.to/?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_15L5xiAq0




I hope that you will all join me on my journey and can give some advice on having braces that both I and others can benefit from.

If I post any more content, I will add it here.

I hope to hear from you all soon.
- Lee

Hey,
It's been another week and I have posted another braces vlog I have posted on YouTube, last Sunday (23/03/2014) which is part 10 of my journey.

It's called "Naughty Foods" and is about foods you should be avoiding when you have braces in order to aid your treatment and not damage your braces.

Please take a look,
And as always, I hope this helps,

Hey again,
It's been another week and I went to have my second check up at the Orthodontist, so as always, I posted another vlog on Sunday (06/04/2014), which is part 12 of my journey now.

As I said, this vlog is about the second time you will go to the orthodontist and my experience.

No problem at all :)

When I went into treatment, I knew that I wanted to be able to help others, so I decided to share my experience, in the hope that it helps others.

(Will be post Sundays video tomorrow)

So I've been asked a few times now, in a few different places, if I have an images or footage showing the development in my teeth over the first 4 months (nearly 5 now) of my treatment.

Here is my answer to that question:
Yes I do, over my videos I have shown my teeth at that stage, but more recently, I uploaded a video containing an image from the beginning of my treatment, through to my second check up.

Just want to apologise for not posting last week, and also that this weeks YouTube video was posted a day late (on Monday rather than Sunday).

Here's my latest braces video titled: Braces - Common Dental Problems.

In which I talk about 5/6 conditions including Demineralisation and Gingivitis both with and without braces.

Link to video: http://anonym.to/?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wM78zMRV4Iw

As always, enjoy it and feedback would be great.
See you soon,

More apologies this week I'm afraid, once again I didn't post last week and I'm really sorry, I finish my 2 years at college in 3 weeks time, so everything is a little hectic.

Here's my latest braces video, that I posted on Sunday (01/06/2014), titled: Braces - NHS Dental Treatment.

In the video I talk about NHS Dental Treatment and the different payment bands (treatment costs) within the NHS.
