The braces are off. I'd post before and after pictures, but who really wants to see a closeup of someone's mouth? Ick. But now the teeth are straight, and I get my retainer tomorrow (some sort of heavier-duty one they make in-house, so I don't have to wait until next week.) I got a mug with balloons, candy and a gift certificate for a photo portrait to show off my new smile, so I rejoined radcliffe, who was watching Pari, we ate some of the candy while watching a Buffy DVD, and then went out for a quick burger, the first meal that I have eaten braces-free.

Total time in braces-1 year 8 months, exactly.

No more complaining about the braces. Tomorrow, you'll hear what I have to say about retainers.

Spent most of the evening with wife and child at home watching the first 4 episodes of 3rd season Buffy on DVD, newly arrived on Tuesday, but unable to be watched until today. One episode was totally new to me, the rest I had only seen in bits and pieces. Life is good.

just don't wrap it up in a napkin at a fast food restaurant and throw it away like the rest of us. :)

-- at least they embed your name in them now, so they are easier to find when sorting through the trash. if you're the kind of person who ends up doing that.

I unearthed mine in my parents basement a few months ago and returned it to them with a note; "Thanks for my healthy teeth!". Needless to say, they weren't overly thrilled with the gift. LOL
