Thanks you guys--I have to say that every time I go to the bathroom at work (it's private), I look at myself in the mirror and just stare at my teeth!! They still feel like they look gigantic :shock: ... I'm very happy! :BigGrin:

I always like the pictures in a book more than anything else--so if you want to go straight to the pictures before these ending pics--look at the link with before pics, and pics at 4 months on Page 13 of this blog. There are some more pics on page 20. And then these final pics.

I think there is a world of difference between page 13 and 47!!! :jump: :jump: :jump:

Thanks AM21! And thank you everybody for your kind comments!!

Sooooo, ya, .... my teeth hurt...I feel like I have cavities all over...I don't know if I'm grinding at night with the retainers on and that's what hurts, or what it is that's causing the pain. I'm going to have to hit the Ibuprofen. Maybe it's because I wear my retainers 12 on and 12 off. And maybe they have to keep shifting because of that or something...

Retainers....hmmmm...I'm glad I'm out of braces--don't get me wrong. But retainers--they are a pain in the ASS!! They are comfortable, that's not it. It's just the keeping them clean, and in and out and in and out--for eating etc. I still can't just snack at work when I have them on. (OK, so not that I should be snacking anyway--I need to shed some poundage!!) I have to be done eating at night to put them on, or it's in and out and clean and brush....WOW--I can't believe I'm whining about this--I'm glad I'm out of braces!! I just have to get used to this new phase I guess....

Your teeth look amazing now. Sorry the retainers are a hassle at the moment but the braces were certainly worth it!
