I can't believe it took me almost an entire month to get on here and update everyone. July 29th I had my braces removed. That's right. Been living a month without braces but I went away on vacation in the beginning of August and then I've been working a lot and dealing with other personal issues. But all that aside now I can finally update this blog. This past month has been amazing. Now that the braces are off my confidence has sky rocketed. I go up to people now and talk, I'm more outgoing and I LOVE to smile. I cannot get enough of smiling. =)
I also have been given my retainers. They are slight pain in the ass but I only technically have to wear them at night. However, I know the first two years after having braces are pretty crucial to keep the teeth in position so I wear my retainers nearly every hour of the day. They are like the Invisline and now those annoying wired ones for the top that look like the braces without the brackets. But anyways. Here's 2 new pictures.
This was definitely the best decision I have ever made and if I had to do it all again I would do it in a heartbeat. The surgeries are all in the past now and I'm happy for that. Though I'll admit I thought this day would never come and it happened so fast. Now life needs to slow down so I can enjoy it to the fullest. =)
