Rosa sans braces


woohoooooo! my braces are no more! my teeth look so BIG, I think they look fake hahaa, It's just because I'm so use to seeing them covered with bits of metal though. I'm actually soooo pleased with them:)
they really hurt now though! I have to wear retainers all day today and tomorrow, and the retainers make them ache so much. My orthodontist said that it's because my teeth are trying to move, so I have to make sure I keep wearing the retainer even though it hurts to keep them in place! Also my gums are really swollen, and bleeding:( my orthodontist said they'll settle down soon though too.
I'm so glad I've reached the end of my jaw surgery journey it has been long and very hard at times but now I feel like it was alllll worth it:) look at those pearly whites!

The journey of my face!

I've made some photo collages to show my progress with swelling since day 3! The comparison of then to now is so crazy, I can't believe how much I resembled a balloon at the beginning.

Also, I always noticed before my surgery that it was casual, non posed photos that I didn't know were being taken, where you could see my underbite the worst. For example..
 Recently I saw these 2 photos which are taken at angles that before would've definitely showed my bite in all it's underbitey glory, but obviously now, there is no underbite to be seen! It's crazy! When I just glanced at them I thought 'oh my gosh thats going to be a really bad angle' but of course they're not bad angles any more!! hooray
Also, I get my braces off............ TOMORROW!! I'm so excited:)
