the absence of metal in my mouth makes me happy

Oh hello teeth, it’s so nice to see you again

No Metal on these teeth anymore

Thursday morning whilst those in NQ were starting to assess the damage of TC Yasi, I was reclined in a chair at the UQ Dental School getting my braces removed and the result is what you see above. I do of course have a retainer to wear full time for the next three months or so and then at night after that for a long time but it’s removable, which makes it all good.

These are my teeth 23OCT2008, the day that I got my braces put for this round. You can see the false tooth I used to wear, it matched my teeth so well …

I also came away with a souvenir of sorts, a plaster set of my teeth. They took a number of impressions and I got this set as the 11 is chipped.

Munch, munch, munch

Now all that remains to having a full smile, is two appointments with the prosthodontist. Yippee. As long as there are no catastrophes of course, I’ll be sporting a full smile on Feb 24. The day before I go to Tasmania for the wedding of my cousin and five days before I go to Japan 😀

It’s not Happy Feet, it’s Happy Teeth 😀

  1. I bet that is nan amazing feeling. I admire you – I have crooked teeth and really should have had braces when I was younger. I know I can have them now, but I am such a chicken!
