Here is a pic of me in my braces the first day.
I am on my third day now and let me just say %ER%^$^%^$%#$ HOly mother of crap, what did I get into to. The first day was great no real pain i guess the aleeve worked but the next day OMG the pressure. When ever my top teeth hit my bottom it hurts
my cheeks are getting hurt too.I finally gave in to wax yesterday and AHHHH! it felt so good but the inside of cheeks are still like, "wtf did u do to me?"
Oddly enough I feel that my sloth tooth is coming down a bit because i can smile differently then the day that I got them,,,, oh and F**** flossing!!!
I have been able to sustain the pain but wow, it sucks!!! The first night floss got stuck I couldn't pull it out and way and then it started tearing my mom had to get some scissors and snip that baby off it was horrible.
It seem like after getting my braces all I want to do is eat.... and then when I do I realize I can't chew so while my family has chicken, or something yummy i eat cambell's soup, and tons pudding/yogurt,
WHEN WILL THE PAIN GO AWAY, WHEN WILL I BE NORMAL???
and this is only their lightest wire, how on earth will I deal with what's to come? I am going to start mouth washing with warm and sat water too because of my poor cheeks.
please take this pain that my cheeks have away!!!!!!!!!
