      Get artificial teeth put in.

      Straight ones.

      keep them on, dont eat foods that are sticky or will stick on to braces. no chewing gums, all these slow up the process, keep them in for however long your dentist says, dont be a fool and have them off quickly and then your teeth move back to their original position, which is double trouble!

      Wire cutters and pliers. Although your orthodontist will probably have a fit.

      But really, it probably isn't a good idea to try and rush them. Just keep thinking of how lovely your smile will be once you're finally done.

      You can get them taken off whenever you want, you can go now and tell your orthodontist to remove them. He is obliged to remove them if you ask so.

      I wouldn't recommend it though. How effective braces are depends on how long they're in. It may seem obvious but if you take them out before you ge the desired effect, you won't get the desired effect.

      So I would just man them out.

      STICK IT OUT! i just had mine taken off today after 16 months and i swear im soo pleased i didnt get them taken off prematurely! Trust me i had days like you. i bet everyone has. But believe me it's so woth it, my teeth are now probly one of the things i love about myself most. Iv'e had people who have called me "brace face" countless times but there faces now when i smile. I swear its the best feeling in the world! Anyone with any doubt about baces should look at the eventual outcomes before doing anything dastic!
      Soo worth it, cant stop smiling!
