Well originally I was told
I had to wear my braces for 22 months or almost 2 years.
I was excited when I first got braces because I would
have perfect teeth. I soon got sick and tired of them.
Having to brush my teeth in the bathroom at lunch
everyday, and go to the orthodontist every 5 weeks.
It was my 7th month and
they put on a power chain. Wow was that painful. I was a
class II(2) case. With gaps everywhere. After one year I
have elastics. They were fun because I was able to shoot
them out of my mouth and hit my teacher.
It was August my year
anniversary and they kept telling me as I sat there
'open, okay now close, now open, and now close again'.
Me being a curious person I asked 'why' and they told me
I was almost done. I had my last 'tightening' in
October. I nearly screamed when they told me'Okay you
get them off next appointment' I was so excited I danced
out of the office. I kept a count don't on the fridge,
and in my locker.
The night before my
appointment I could not sleep. I went to my appointment.
The did the line 'open,close' then I heard clicking
noise. I did not even notice that took them off. The
worst part would have been then sanding off the glue,
and doing moldings. I picked up my retainers the next
day. I have wires also glued to the back of my teeth. I
have been brace free for 3 months and loving it.
