so, today was the first step in getting my braces taken off! they took the back bands off and took impressions for my retainers. i've had a band removed before because the dentist needed to check the tooth out once for some reason. it wasn't that bad, some crunching of the cement but nothing this brace face pro couldn't handle! then, the impressions. again, this was my 4th or 5th time getting impressions done. no sweat.
i can feel the smoothness of my back molars which is very exciting! they are rough cuz there is still some cement stuck on there. next week when the rest of them come off she will use the 'sander' to get it off.
something i did notice before i had the impressions done...i have some major coffee stains on my teeth where the wire was! i brush with the sonicare, rinse with listerine and once and a while use the little straight 'pipe cleaner' type brushes in between. but i guess they are no match for Dunkin Donuts french vanilla! I guess that was the price of being a bleary eyed sleep deprived college student for 4 years! I'll just buy some over the counter whiteners for when they come off...i'm hoping that will do the trick!!
Next stop, debracing on the 22nd!! ...but first i gotta finish finals week! :P
