My Newly Straight Teeth

Tuesday, May 06, 2014

I think I neglected to mention it here, but two weeks ago today I got my braces off. YAY!



I had two glorious weeks (glorious in hindsight anyway) of these clear plastic retainers so it looked like I was really, truly done with metal in my mouth.

But then today my permanent retainers came in and now I am back to a silver line across my top and bottom teeth. It's better than full on braces, admittedly, but damn. So close. I have to wear these full time except when I'm eating or brushing for six months, then just at night.

Six months sounds better than 19 months for the braces, but still. DAMN. SIX MONTHS!

Siiiigh.

On the upside, they're annoying to take out and put back in so maybe that will limit my snacking? HA! Nah, I don't want that cookie, it'd be too much hassle to take out the retainers.

There's always an upside, right?

OK I'm just hoping I get used to these, because I've had these retainers in for about 4 hours and they're annoying and they feel weird and I now talk with a lisp.
