Ashley from Maryland
I have wanted braces for a
while now, but due to parents not really trying to fix it
if ain't broke I never received them in my adolescence.
Now I'm 20 years old. For most
of my life I knew that my four front bottom teeth were very
crowded...so much that my canines had shifted to a vertical
state. I also had my last baby teeth removed my senior year of
high school and I noticed that one of my permanents never came
down. After countless pictures with my horrible gap I finally
decided to do something about it! I first went to my local
dentist who referred me to a great ortho and after weeks of
waiting yesterday I got them on!
I had done research but oh how
no one told me of the pain in putting on molar bands! I almost
wanted to run out of the office but two hours later I came out
with metal braces on top and bottom with red and green ligs for
the season! I went home and fell asleep as the pressure was sort
of getting to me.
I'm kinda getting used to my
new soft food diet but am missing Twix candy bars! I really
would like to thank Lynn for making this website. Before getting
my braces I read through her whole journal and found it pretty
impressive! Also everyone in the Metal Mouth boards are so
helpful with the questions I have had. Well hopefully these next
two years go by pretty fast...but I'm sure I'll have fun!
