I'm getting them off next Tuesday and I'm really fucking excited for it however I'm only getting the top braces off. Does anyone who had braces answer these questions:
1. Do they hurt when they take them off?
No, but it's unconfertable when they try to take the glue off. But it won't hurt.
2. Do you have to wear a retainer? What happens when you don't wear them?
I had to wear one, but I only wore it for a few weeks. I hated it because it backed up all my spit and made me shound leik dish.
That was when I was 12.
And now I have to get braces again. So if you decide you don't like your retainer, make sure you're at least a decent age so if you come back to the ortho after a while and they want to put braces on you, you can say "back the fuck off".
I also highly recommend you don't be as retarded as I was and wear your retainer if they give you one. But you don't have to wear it to school. You can just wear it at night.
3. How does it feel like to not have metal shit on your teeth? People told me that your mouth feels all slimy and shit.
Feels GREAT. Believe me. But it really does feel slimey. But it's very satisfying, not gross.
BQ: how can I make time go faster and get to Tuesday already? One day feels like 10 fucking years
