One more sleep :)

Braces come off tomorrow at Noon! :D
Am I excited or what???

I've had these things on since I was 27. (September 8th, 2004 to be exact.) It will be very nice to have free teeth again! :) Free STRAIGHT teeth! I can't wait!
So, what will happen tomorrow is that the braces will come off my teeth, and I will then get moulds made of my teeth so my orthodontist can create my retainers. (I ordered 2; one is the new clear kind (the look like the invisalign trays) and the other is the old-school metal wire kind. I did this because she mentioned that the invisbile plastic kind cover your entire teeth and will get worn and break if you happen to clench or grind your teeth at night.) So, I will wear the clear invisible trays during the day and the metal wire retainer at night.









I will probably be required to wear the retainers for AT LEAST 6 months from when I get them... or until I don't care to have straight teeth. (My orthodontist laughs... "Or until you get married!") ...Considering I did this for me and not for someone else, I'll be the judge of that! ;)

I'm very impressed with what braces have done for my teeth! I can't wait to take a picture of my smile, without the metal!!! :) I will definitely take and post one here tomorrow afternoon!!!!

Can't wait to see the new chompers!!
Even if your teeth settle into a natural state- they'll never be as crooked as they were before the braces.

Congrats!
