I had a braces appointment today, and we took impressions. 🙂 I’ll have a retainer in a few weeks. The braces are staying on until the retainer is ready, to avoid any movement in the interim. Picking my last ever ligature colors was nostalgic. I ended up getting dark and light blue alternating, just for fun. The color combination seemed vernal to me.

My dentist showed me her lab’s designs for retainers, but she gave me the option of using this site’s designs, too, since I’d pointed them out to her. My dentist spoils me. 🙂 Anyways, I looked at the ones from my dentist’s lab, and they were okay, but none of them really stood out to me. There was one with black-eyed susans that I kind of liked, and there was another that was a very generic pinwheel design using 3 colors that I liked. But, they had no cats, and I really wanted a cat. So, I’m going to get the boxy cat with dark green sparkly background from the linked site. The boxy cat is particularly awesome because it looks a little like Pancake.

May 6th is naked tooth day right now, but if an earlier appointment time becomes available, they’ll move me into an earlier slot. The date was out a bit because of their availability; they’re in the middle of a move to a new office which is making appointments tighter than normal.
