Freaked about getting my braces off
Deep breaths, babe! Everything’s going to be just fine. Getting your braces removed is a li’l scary ‘cause it’s a long appointment and those suckers are glued to your teeth, after all. But don’t worry; while you might feel some discomfort as your orthodontist removes the wires and brackets, you should never be in full-out pain. He (or she) will have to scrape and chip off the remaining cement, and the pressure put on your mouth can be quite uncomfortable. Focus on breathing through your nose, one breath at a time, and you’ll get through it, I promise.
So calm down, sweetie, and get ready to work that grin! Good luck and congrats!
