I really worried when I found out I needed braces. On the first appointment, I was really scared but everyone was really nice and the orthodontist told me what it would look like and how it would feel.
The next time I was there, I got my metal squares fitted, and when they were on, I was dead happy. They made me look COOL!!
The next day, all my friends said “Wow, they look cool!”. I loved them, and in no time at all, my teeth were extremely straight.
When my orthodontist asked me if it was okay to take them off, I was devastated. Getting them off was just a little tickle at the sides of my mouth, then he said “Okay, they are off!”. I was amazed at how short a time it took, and it didn’t even hurt.
When they were off, I couldn’t stop smiling with my teeth showing for the first time in my life.
Then I had my retainer fitted. This was the bit I liked the most, because people said to me “It really hurts”, but it DIDN’T!! I thought it tickled!
Now I have brace-free teeth, with pearly white gleams!!
