My case was simple, and I wore the braces just short of 20 months. I’m really pleased with the result. It was worth the pain and agony that go along with braces. 🙂 Now I need to get used to the retainer, and wear it all the time (except when eating) so my teeth don’t shift back.
I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to get braces and to do something positive for myself.
The most exciting thing about having my braces off is eating normally. I’ve forgotten how to do that. 😛 I’m so used to picking food out from under the wires. I had a burger for lunch today (something I found difficult to eat with braces). I was shocked when my teeth still felt smooth after taking a bite. No stuck food. Weirdness. In a good way. 🙂
