Here we go, I am 30 years
old, and today is my first day in braces. I have always
wanted them and finally after many years of excuses...I got
them. I have the ceramic braces on top and metal on the
bottom. I was ready for everything, thanks to this website.
My appointment was really early
8AM. WOW, talk about stress get the kids up and going and me, to
be there at 8am. Dropped the kids off and I was on time. Very
excited, and anxious and I'll be honest a little scared.
So they whole thing went as
everyone on this website said it would. He did the top first and
then the bottom. I took about 2 hours and the worst part was the
adhesive. All in all I give huge props to this website for
preparing me for this day.
The Dr. and his assistant had a
nice flow, and even the cheek spreader things weren't too bad.
One huge piece of advice, chap stick. Before you even begin with
appointment apply massive amounts of chap stick and even go
beyond your lips. It really makes the stretching less tight
feeling, and I experienced no discomfort.
So now 5 hours into the next
year of braces, my teeth are sore not painful just sore. I tried
eating a soft pretzel.... no go. But a nice baked potato did the
trick. Who knows what I will be living on for the next few days.
I hope everyone who is on the
fence dives in and gets the braces, the discomfort is short
lived. I know I deal with this because in one year, I will the
teeth and smile I have always wanted. Good Luck!
