    After almost five years, my braces are finally off.

    I went in at 9am, but they didn't get started until 9:25! Talk about antsy!

    The molar bands (all 6 of them) and the brackets popped right off, but the removal of the cement was terrible! She used some sort of hand tool scraper, and I felt it constantly scraping every tooth. I thought she was taking off my enamel! Thankfully she wasn't. I didn't have any marks from the brackets; however, I've got decalcification and two cavities on two premolars (top left and bottom right) because the molar bands I had on them lost chunks of cement which food got stuck into. So I've got to go to the dentist to have taken care of.

    My retainers come in in two weeks!

    Before (last February):

    My son was lucky - he had no cavities or decalcification. I had him in to have his teeth cleaned often.

    Looks awesome :)

    a word of advice, don't forget to use your retainers!!

    my sister took her braces off when she was 13. i don't think i ever saw her use her retainers, to say that i saw her use it at least once is a stretch. now 5 years later, her teeth are so crooked again that the dentist wants to brace her back up.

    she's begging my mom for that invisilign thing :rolleyes:

    Certainly not. My retainers suck though, wow! I got the Essix ones (Invisalign tray looking ones) and I have to be so careful to keep them clean so they don't stain.

    More pictures, woot!

    Nevermind the wicked spot I had on my forehead. Ugh, that was so bad.

    Unfortunately. Good thing about the pill is that for the most part my complexion is nice. When I'm on the third week of my pill pack though, I get nasty breakouts, like that shiner.

    :( I feel your pain.
    I never had a problem with my skin until I had my tubes tied and came off the birth control shots. Now you can mark where I am in my cycle by whether or not I have huge zit on the left side of my chin.
