Bye bye Braces
So after almost 6 months post op,today I got the surprise of getting my braces off. And let me tell you it’s the best feeling EVER! To know I can now smile without the braces getting in the way is ace.
She said she couldn’t be happier with my bite and went to see if they could make my retainer in the lab. She said not to get my hopes up,but luckily they came back with a yes.
This meant the braces coming off,which hurt quite a lot,but thinking about it they would do as they’ve been on my teeth for three years. After they were off she cleaned off the glue and made up some moulds to make the retainer. The horrible moulds,for those who have had braces you’ll know the ones I mean. For those who haven’t,it’s basically clay which gets pushes into your teeth to create the shape for the retainers. Not nice.
Looking at myself in the mirror was a huge difference but a happy one. I keep touching my teeth as weird as that sounds,I can’t get used to the fact the braces are no longer there.
Think it’s safe to say I’ll be smiling more from now on. ☺️😃😊👄
