I had neglected to consistently wear my bottom retainer. Two teeth started moving. Old retainer no longer fits.
Trying to look a the positive here, because I am super duper not enjoying the ever-enduring dull pain in my mouth and the shredding of my lower lip as it rubs on my metal mouth.
Positive things of having braces for the 2nd time:
-Built in diet system. I seriously don't want to eat anything. Too much work.
-I have never made out with anyone while wearing braces. Anthony, no doubt, is definitely looking forward to this.
-Instant sympathy card. (Although I am pretty sure that this won't last)
-I only have to have them for 6 months instead of four years.
-Free toothbrushes. I am always in need of those. I literally destroy these things. My family makes fun of me.
-More doctor's appointments that I don't have to freak out about. Plus the ability to schedule this appointments during any staff meetings I don't want to attend.
-Free wax (clearly I am grasping at straws here)
-Getting to feel the financial responsibility of choosing to neglect a relatively simple task.
WARNING: Wear your retainer, or this will happen to you.
