Rony from Los
I almost had to
cancel my appointment for the 3rd time because of work
commitments, but I was able to make it on time. I had a 6pm
appointment and it was a strange feeling walking into the
I had upper clear
braces put on top and it only took about 20 minutes. The putting
on of the braces was not painful, but the biting of this plastic
mouth object was because I was literally biting it with my gums.
Once it was over,
it didn't hurt much. I looked at myself on the mirror and it
didn't look that bad. I am glad I got the clear braces,
especially since I live in LA and work in Beverly Hills where
everyone is so concerned with image. Of course, my mouth looks
fuller because of the braces. I was pleasantly surprised that it
didn't hurt that much afterwards. It was painful the first day
and a half, but after that, I was able to chew and eat chicken.
Either they didn't put enough pressure on my braces or I am just
one of those lucky ones that don't get too much pain.
Having to brush my
teeth every time after I eat is a pain though. The teeth really
get sore after brushing and flossing. Four days later, the teeth
pain is pretty much gone, but it feels so weird having the
braces on. I only had to use wax once, now I feel that my lips
are tough enough to take the pain. It will be a long 2 years,
but it's cool to see how understanding everyone around me is. I
will reward myself with a brand new BMW after this is all over,
so I look forward to the summer of 2008.
