Braces are the best!


So here I am, a little bit over a year ago with braces....yes, I totally look like a 15 year old. I work at an Orthodontist office(I still will have my job when I get back from China...you are the best Dr. Swenson!) and it took 2 years for me to finally give in and get them. I was in for a big shock! I finally understood what our patients were going through! Braces feel so weird. When you work at an Ortho office you realize the imperfections in your own teeth, and so I gave in to this torture. You can all laugh, I remember when my brother first saw me he said "hey tin grin, how are ya?" I am sure Robb felt a little awkward kissing me, and eating was a chore, because I always took so much time cleaning out the food in my braces(I wish some of our patients would be so kind to do so before I untie them). Any who, I thought I would share this awesome picture with you...It may bring thoughts of middle school and high school to your mind, accompanied with memories of your own braces fiascos

I totally sympathize with you! I got braces when I was 20, and it was worth every comment. I only had mine on for 9 months because I actually did all the things the Ortho asked me to. (including doubling up on my rubberbands at night) ;)

I never thought you ever needed braces. You look so cute and oyu crack me up on the fact that you think you look like a 15 year old. I love it. You are so cute Annie. You and Rob look like you are having a blast. How long are you going to be there again?! Looks like so much fun. Rob is a nerd. I love the legs spread below. Cory LOL at that one.

Luckily you have an adorably cute face, otherwise those braces might have looked scary. :0)

Annie,
Love the picture. I had braces when I was in Junior High and the beginning of high school and like 6 years later my dog chewed up my retainer so a little while longer I went to my ortho and asked him for a new retainer and low and behold I had to get braces again! He said it was because my joints were too flexible. It was nice for dance, but not for my teeth! So I had braces on my bottom teeth last year. I felt like a child especially when I would see a picture of me and the braces would catch the light and glimmer in the picture. hahaha... oh well, it was only for 4 months and my teeth are extra straight now. haha...
