THEY'RE OFF!!!!!

#1 Post by MrsCharisma »

Oh my gosh I am so happy!

My appt was at 10. By 10:10 the assistant had removed all the brackets. The ceramic brackets were more difficult than the stainless. No 'pain' but pressure and that cracking noise is crazy!

It took the ortho a little while to remove all the glue. That was a little difficult at times because of the cold air, but we only stopped 3 times.

He evened out my teeth, removing some of the ridges and rounded my canines off a bit. He agreed with me that they were a bit too pointy! He fit my retainers and then we got photos. Done! I was there about 75 minutes but that included me running my mouth to the ortho assistants.

I have upper and lower Hawley's and got turquoise with glitter! Yay!! :-D

He originally said 24/7 for 30 days and then nighttime. But today said I can go straight to nightime wear only!!! :jump:

I CANNOT talk with the retainers in! LOL!!! It's like my tongue is just stuck searching for a place to be. So weird. I will probably wear my retainers from after dinner to when I get to work.

Congrats on your beautiful smile!! And also, your retainers look fabulous. I'm so envious that you only have to wear them at night and I'm sure you'll be perfectly comfortable with them soon :)
