Braces Removed (13th April 2005)
Both my upper and lower braces were removed yesterday and I am not sorry to see them go. It’s not over yet since I have had a retainer bonded onto the back of my lower teeth for the next six months to stop them moving back to their old position. I will also have a removable retainer on the top as well, which will be a bit of a drag. Still, the permanent retainer is so smooth and flat that I hardly notice it and even with the removable one for my upper teeth it sure beats having a mouthful of metalwork.
