i just had my breaces removed today and it feels weird. YAY braces is be removed before my vacation!!

i was quite annoyed that i needed braces, meaning my teeth were sticking out. because of my wisdom teeth. because of my wisdom teeth i had to pull out 4 teeth of mine. the annoying anaestetic, and they used pliers lol now my braces are removed i feel free, but i am worried for the pain that will come, to remove my wisdom teeth if they keep pushing. *Gulp*

how do you feel about braces? or what was the feeling when your braces came off? do you feel more confident? or would you rather have the braces left on?

In the Philippines, braces were used to be popular. It was almost like treated as a fashion accessory. Some people that had perfect sets of teeth would endure the pain they go thru at the dentist.... just to get braces and to be "in" the crowd.


But that's a long time ago, when I was still there. I don't know if they still like wearing that. ^-^

It was... freedom...

Haha, yeah.. it felt a bit weird, but it was really refreshing... and now I could eat pizza, apples, and all sorts of foods that I had to eat "differently", now I could eat with no restriction! :lol:

The only thing I didn't like was that ugly stains left behind from the braces... and the strange urge to keep licking your teeth with your tongue.

EDIT to above: I think there still are some people doing it, but not so much these days. I think the current trend has something to do with earrings... well, I really don't know.

I agree. Back then, just like cellphones when they were just starting to emerge in the country.

^ yeah... I was an idiot and kept eating foods that made the braces come off. It really stalled the entire thing... plus the fact that I didn't visit my orthodontist on a regular basis. My bad, really.

haha i got told to keep wearing elastic bands on my teeth. but they were wierd to put on, i'd always forget about them, and i'd always wanna eat a snack or food 5 mins after, which, annoyingly, meant that i'd have to take the bands off, and put a new pair on after, about over half the time i'd forget. those elastics were annoying. got used to it though. not to mention the elastic packets would sometimes tear, and the stupid little things would drop everywhere, or burst out in my pocket
