I endured the wire tightening, the wires digging into my gums, and the challenges of thoroughly brushing my teeth.  All turned out well and I was thrilled with my new and improved smile.  I wore my retainer for a short while but then I got lazy.  Fast forward to my early twenties, and I had my wisdom teeth removed.  The result was shifting teeth and gaps!
