Just a reminder, if you follow me, I will follow you too!😊

Hi guys! How are you guys? Sorry I have not talked with you guys for a while. By the way, you guys may have known me as Ljun1 last year. I missed you guys!

What do cows drink? (I guarantee someone will think milk on the first one.) A. Water!!!

I knew the answer was water, but my mind immediately went to milk 😆. You got me on that one!

Ooh that was a good one!

Yes you are correct, I did think milk first! 😂 Fun fact thanks for sharing!

Does anyone here have braces? I just got mine off and I have to wear retainers for six months before I can completely get rid of them during the day..

I am getting them soon, I hope they aren't painful.......

Don’t worry it wasn’t painful for me…you’ll do great!! 👍

I have a very high pain tolerance, so it should be fine, the only reason I was worried, is bc my girl cousin got braces, and she cried all night. But I should be fine.

I got braces, too! I just got my bottom brace off so I have to wear retainer for six months until can only wear it in nights.

Oh my word! The same thing happened to me too! I got my bottom off first and then a month later they took off the top!

Good luck, it’s super fast and easy! The best part is that they polish your teeth which makes them really glossy feeling!

Exciting! It might hurt though, especially if you have sensitive teeth. But I won’t scare you, because everyone is different 😜. Good luck, anyway!

I just got mine off just a few days ago too!!!! I had to do the same for a little bit but now I can only wear my retainer at night. Also I have a wire behind a few of my teeth which I have to wear for 6 months. Congrats on getting your braces off!!!
