My First Day in Braces

experiences of ArchWired readers

 Kylie from London


Iím 26 and had my top braces put on last Friday. Surprisingly quick and easy visit, everything done in about 40 minutes and its now day 6 and have had no need for any pain relief at all, they are really quite comfy. Maybe just a little sore to eat thatís all so sticking to the soft stuff. The only annoying thing is all the food that gets stuck in them so guess that means I won't be eating out so often.

I opted for the ceramic brace and tooth coloured wire which has been a good move as so far everyone has commented that you can only really see them unless you get up close and have even had to point them out to a few people I had not told. I am definitely still counting down the days and looking forward to getting them off in a year. But for those thinking about it best just to do it and get it over with!
