6 years. Exactly 6 years.
I first put on braces on 27 August 2007. And I removed them on 26 August 2013. Oh wow. What a moment. I thought I’d cry, but I didn’t. I just felt amazed that I survived 6 years of metal teeth, all those monthly visits (and the amount I had to pay over these 6 years) and that it was taken out all too swiftly.
Now that the braces are out, I feel weird when I eat. For 6 years, it has become a habit to prevent food from getting stuck underneath my braces. And now when I use my tongue to feel if there’s anything stuck under the ‘braces’, all I feel is the smoothness of my teeth. WOW. I’m still trying to get used to it.
I’m going to get papa to sponsor me for crowning at year end… muahahaha…
