Freedom!

After almost three years of dental purgatory, I am brace free!  I feel naked, and I like it!



Here are a few pics of the 2 hour process of removing ceramic braces...




 

 
  Here is my bite positioner I have to wear for 4 weeks.  I'll wear it 4 hours a day at least, and every night until my bottom teeth are straightened back out and ready for veneers...





Cute look, no?  I don't even care that it's foul, and tastes bad, and makes me drool and I can't speak with it in.  I'm just glad to be brace free!  Well folks, I'm off to eat me some corn on the cob, woohoo!


 I'll leave you with one last awful pic.  It's unflattering as all get out, but I love my new big cheesy smile!

    1. I was the most delicious corn I've ever eaten. It was also a strangely liberating experience. : }
