So, I got my braces off yesterday. I'm so happy they're finally off, and can't stop smiling! It's really worth all the years of effort.
As for the process of getting them off, it was kind of sore in parts, the orthodontist first pops the brackets and wires off with a type of pliers, then drills at the glue- a sander type thing. Then I got impressions, which were rank, but were over quickly. He then cleaned and polished my teeth. The cleaning hurt a bit, but only when it hit near the gums. Other than it feeling really weird, and my gums being sore when I'm brushing my teeth, all is well, and it wasn't as bad as I feared it would be!
Any questions, just ask.
Back again soon,
