i love dentist...???

eehheemmm....my perfect smile

my hawley retainer (5-6 mths or forever...)

my last day on braces...

on braces fr 1 yr 7 mths...

Got upper and lower Hawley retainers after my braces. The only way I got used to them was to wear them all the time. At first I took them out all the time when I had to talk and eat. But once I decided to leave them in my speach improved. I still sound a little strange but I've got used to that. I leave them on when I'm eating out but must rinse my mouth and the retainers as soon as I can after eating. Get rid of all that extra food in my mouth! braces and retainers can be inconvenient, but guess..they are definitely worth the trouble. When will you know for sure? On the day your braces are removed and you can see your new and improved smile!...cewwaahh!!!
