I got my braces off!

  1. At age 21, months from graduating college, my mouth is metal-free. Okay, minus that permanent retainer in the back of my bottom teeth. High fives anyone?
     
  2. Congratulations, nerdphanie! I got mine off a month ago and now hate wearing my retainers. What was your first celebratory meal without your braces?
     
  3. Thanks eucalyptic! Sushi!!! :yahoo: Should've gone with beef jerky and apples, but love sushi.
     
  4. Hehe congrats!
     
  5. Oh, I'll bet you feel such freedom!! How long did you have braces?
     
  6. Congrats, nerdphanie!!:wlae:I totally understand how you feel! I had braces when I was 11.. *goes off to find her long-lost retainers* :graucho:
     
  7. Yay! High five! Show us your smile. :greengrin:

    I hardly used my retainer after my braces came off... (bad girl!). Luckily my teeth hasn't moved too much. My celebratory meal was a hamburger! Actually biting into one rather than braking it up into small pieces!

    I did miss the braces. Best diet ever! :yes:
     
  8. Pics of the smile...PLEEEZ!!!

  13. Congrats :biggrin: I took mine off a year ago..had them on my bottom teeth for 5 months or so to correct a small place. but god was I so happy to get rid of them lol
    I had the bonded retainer put in like you too :smile: you get used to it..
    but sadly I ate something that broke it off on one side this weekend..
    lol so I somehow removed the whole retainer myself..NO FUN I tell you.
    going in tomorrow to get a new one put in *sigh* I wish a year with the retainer was enough :p
    I do like the way my teeth feel atm :S totally free..ah well =) I want to keep them straight forever..
