Guess who got her braces off yesterday?
The entire adult braces experience has been interesting. And it honestly isn't 100% complete because I have a couple of appointments for things to do with my top teeth, which had the invisalign. But as of yesterday the actual brackets came off, so I figure that is worth celebrating!
It's funny how much I hated braces as a kid, and how not a big deal they were as an adult. I remember them being miserable. This time around they were only miserable in the since of like, I HAVE ADULT BRACES, WOE IS ME. But they didn't really hurt much, they didn't cause major eating issues, they were... just there. Still, I am thrilled for them to be done. Yay for straight teeth! I can't wait to be finished completely, but already I know I love my new smile, and I will always think of my sweet Missy and be grateful for the gift.
** Also, as a take away life lesson: After having braces as a child, WEAR YOUR FREAKING RETAINER.
