Taking Off My Braces
YAY! The braces process is over. I am sad to see them go, but happy to see the results (happy with the results also!). WOW! I'm done with braces! Later today, I got and get my retainer. I can't believe how good they look!! So... I'm going to narrate my pictures. I was allowed to take pictures during while they took my braces off. I wanted to take my braces home, but I forgot them :( Maybe they will give them to me later when I come for my retainer. I told them I wanted them. Hopefully they will save them for me. I hope so. Ok! So, here is the narrative.
This is before... in the car... on the way to getting my braces off!
Ok... my teeth are NOT yellow! It is from the light. This is RIGHT after the removal of my braces. I still have the glue on and everything.
Now, she is taking the glue off.
This tool thing hurt my gums. Since the glue was right next to my gums... it would scrape my gums sometimes. It hurt and made them raw :(
Yay!! Now the glue is off!!
The vibration of the tool that took the glue off made me go crazy. Just the constant vibration. I had to close my eyes for a few seconds and squeeze them shut. I thought I was going to pass out.
Now for the polish to make my teeth pretty! And shiny.
After the polish! I have the polish all over my lips... heh heh. It didn't have a taste, but it I could feel it on my lips and in my mouth. She gave me a tooth brush and some tooth paste and let me brush my teeth in the bathroom and clean up the polish.
Yay! After I am all cleaned up and waiting for the next step... impressions...
Ok, I have a disgusted look on my face because of the impressions. The plastic teeth thing was filled with clay stuff, and she shoved it into my mouth (the hygienist is really nice! I am not putting her down!)
and the clay like oozed out the side and came out of the edge. I was not a pretty sight. After the impressions, I had clay all over my lips and in my mouth. It was pretty gross... so I did a disgusted picture... 1st impression done!
The second impression clay oozed all over my face! UGH! Haha. It was pretty funny actually.
Here is the second impression! Glad to be done with impressions!
On to X-rays! I don't have any more pictures... I didn't take anymore at the orthodontist.. so this is the last picture and basically the end of the adventure :)
Yup! So, my braces are off! And I looove the results!
I have to go because I have a wedding to get ready for.
My uncle and future aunt's wedding!
I will blog later too!
