5 ways to celebrate after getting your braces off!
Having braces on your teeth can last from a few months to a few years, depending upon all the factors involved. And during the time that you have had them on your teeth, you probably felt like you missed out on a lot! There are things you couldn’t eat at all, things you had to cut up real small, and most likely you longed for the day that you could sink your teeth into an apple!
Here are 5 ideas that may be fun for you (you can probably make a long list to of ideas to add!)…
1. Throw a party. Throwing a ‘braces are off’ party is a great way to celebrate. Invite your friends over, put out the candy apples and fruits that you have been longing for, and enjoy showing off those new straight teeth and your incredible smile.
2. Show off your new smile – plan a photo shoot. You deserve to show the world your new beautiful smile! Plan a photo shoot, so you can be one – on – one with a photographer and put your best smile forward. You will get some great shots to put on your MySpace, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram and Pinterest accounts.
3. Chew some gum! Whether you like it or not, you know you have been wanting to have gum for the longest time . Although it’s not a good thing to still do regularly, you can take an afternoon to chew some gum and feel guilt and worry free.
4 . Picnic in the park. Weather permitting, a picnic in the park will make for a fun celebration. Take some of your favorite outdoor games, invite the friends, and have a cooler filled with icy drinks. On the grill, you can plan for things like corn on the cob that you have had to largely avoid while having your braces. It will make for a memorable afternoon!
5. Have a potluck dinner. Have your friends each bring a dish people with braces have to take precaution with. This will give them the chance to learn a little more about what you went through, and it will be fun to see what options they come up with. Ask each of your friends to write down a comment about you with or without your braces. Your potluck will be filled with interesting dishes, laughs, and a good time!
Doing some of the above things, such as chewing gum, may still not be good for your teeth or your body overall. But doing it on a special occasion, and not making a habit out of it, shouldn’t do any harm. Now that you have made it through wearing braces, you will find that you like to smile more, show off your beautiful teeth, and really feel great! Having a celebration for getting your braces off is a great way to remember the day as something really special, include those you love, and start a new you!
