Goodbye to my braces!!
I've had my braces on since January of last year, and I'm about sick to death of them. I had a fairly messed up smile (IMO, at least), so I'm glad I got them, but sometimes it's hard to remember that. Anyway, I went to the orthodontist today and she said I'm almost done! I made my appointment, and I get them off on September 4th! HOORAY!!! I thought I was going to have to go through one more summer without having any Indiana sweet corn, and that, my friends, is just cruel.

woohoo! congrats on getting a date for that. Its totally something to look forward to. You should plan a big cook out and have all the corn you can eat! Yanno... they make these neato corn "pealer" things... My brother has braces, and my grandfather has dentures... and we have about 4 of these things in the house. They swear by em!

Cool!!! I have had my braces since the summer of 2005. I had really crooked teeth for some reason. Well, I get them off this September too!!! After I get them off, I will be getting my teeth whitened. I am so excited! The only problem is that school pictures and reshoots are all in the month of August for my school. I guess I will have to deal with one more school picture of me with them on.

Isn't it a relief to know that the braces stage of your life is almost over?

Congrats!


Oooh I remember when I had braces. I hated them! I had the old fashioned ones that wrapped around your teeth... ewww they were bad. Ok, so it was a loooooooooooooong time ago.... I had to wear the neck gear thingie... yes what a fashion statement! Things have changed.

I went into a orthodontist office last year to have my teeth checked, because my front teeth have now started to hit my bottom teeth causing the top ones to become loose. Back when I had mine removed they didn't give me anything, now I hear they put a permanent retainer in. So they were hoping that would help, but no luck.

Also, I was jealous because you can pick color bands for your braces and while they worked on your mouth you can watch TV! I felt robbed...



PS... I was one of those "bad" patients... I ate ice and corn on the cob.. cleaning out the corn from my braces wasn't fun though...

hmmm i eat corn on the cob and popcorn and all that good stuff with my braces on. Actually, I dont know if I'm allowed to or not, but my orthodontist considers me one of his best patients so maybe I brush a lot and am able to get away with it without him noticing.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone!

Susan - I'd thank my parents, but I paid for these braces myself (I'm 25). It was very pricey, but I think it was worth it.
