Brace Yourself...

I could kiss my ortho on the mouth. But I won't. At my appointment yesterday, he told me my teeth look beautiful and I am 6 months ahead of schedule!!!! He thinks he can have my braces off by Christmas! Christmas!!!!!!!!!!

If you've never had braces, this probably doesn't mean a whole lot to you but trust me, it's a big deal. Being 35 and having braces is a little odd, even though it's much more commonplace than it used to be. Even so...Christmas!!! That would be the only present I needed.

He did some minor adjustments to move my canines forward a bit and so today my lower jaw is achy but the rest of me is tickled hot pink!

Christmas!!!!!!! Woohoo!

  7. Happpy day for you!!! You'll have to post a pict of the biggest smile in Fl. I'm looking at getting them on again. My wisdom teeth pushed them all forward. I of course have to get the wisdom teeth out. Yay. Ahh, the price of beauty.

    Just wait until you run your tongue over your super smooth straight teeth. It's worth it.
