So my braces are gone!!!
It is such a weird feeling! My teeth dont even look or feel the same! Such a change!
They are so soft and shiny:) I have a permanent retainer on the bottom and i am getting a retainer on the top on Monday... I kinda miss the braces tho... Its weird!
My teeth feel like they r already moving...

Last appointment I had, he said my braces might be comming off so we will see, I go on Nov 15th at 11 am and hopefully ill leave a happy camper:) I miss my teeth and I am so excited to feel my teeth together post surgery and with out braces!

Update (4 months since surgery)

So, In two days it will be 4 months since my surgery. I am almost back to normal. And I am pretty much eating everything in sight :) I still cannot open my mouth to my full potential but its getting better. I wake up in the morning and i am kind of in pain, but it goes away. I love my new bite. I feel so much better. Its weird, because sometimes I forget and I feel insecure,l than I remember I dont need to worry anymore! I deffinatly smile soooo much more than I used to and I didnt think it was possible. I will post some before pics and one of when I was swollen so you can see, and a new current one. It is a huge difference:) The surgeon did a great job.

Before:Here Was when I looked the worst! Because my braces aligned my teeth and made the underbite worse.

After surgery while I was swollen:
I looked scary! But honestly that was the worst of it... it got better from that point on.

I feel so much better about myself!!! I Go to the dentist tomorrow to have my firat cleaning since the surgery and I get my braces tightened, the dentist says a few more months of the braces, I cant wait!!!! Although, I dont hate the braces as much now!
