I'm writing this on Sunday evening to schedule it to go live on Wednesday morning. Yesterday, if everything went according to plan, I got my braces off!
Braces are something I've wanted for a very long time. But life always seemed to intervene. I had two teenagers who needed braces. When I turned 40, I decided I wasn't ever going to be younger, and if I wanted straight teeth, now was the time.
January of last year I started the process of adjustments, bands, brackets, wax, and It-now-takes-me-20-mins-to-floss. I opted not to go with the invisible braces, because I wanted to get done with the process quicker, and I didn't really care if I had metal on my teeth or not as far as my looks go. It falls under the "life's too short to worry about stuff like that" category.
Braces at this point in my life have caused comment, double-takes, and even got me carded once. :D What a hoot.
So, did you have braces? Have you been through the process with your kids?
