Im getting braced today!

Postby Jisgone » Mon Jan 12, 2009 10:23 am

So the day has come... I get my braces put on today!
Im half looking forward to it and half dreading it... I want them on because the sooner they are on the sooner they come off, but i dont want them on cause im 24 and they are braces haha
So 1 hour and 40 minutes till my appt and im on a liquid diet for the next 5 or so days, ive bought lots of soup and liquidy kinda things and am hoping for a good loss this week :P
I ate steak for lunch yesterday and lots of super chewy lollies last night to get it all out of my system.... wish me luck :P i might even take a photo once they are on and post it up so you can all laugh and call me train tracks haha :)

haha it went ok.. they look worse than i couldve imagined!
the first 6 weeks my teeth will be doing alot of spreading out so ive got all kinds of metal wires and elastic band action going on, but in 6 weeks time it all comes off and ill just have the regular straight wire across, im counting down the days already :P
the pain isnt bad, the braces dont seem to be rubbing on my gums like i expected and the teeth are a little tender but nothing like the pain i would have imagined ide be in!

Oooh I'm so jealous! I've always wanted braces but could never afford them. What type did you get? The invisible, clear ones? Or the ones that go on the inside of the teeth so no-one can see them? Or just normal ones?

Best of luck with your braces, Jewles. Hope the pain subsides and they're not uncomfortable.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

i had braces when i was young. the look of them at the time did not bother me at all. i was 12.. but now i look back on my school photos and i look like a fool... mum also made me wear a big centered backpack cos she didnt want the curve in my spine to get worse.... :(

anyways... the pain was almost unbearable at times.. was so horrible... but it was worth it..

dont be suprised if your teeth look huge when you get them off... mine did.. and the kids at school called me a mule, or kanga... im just reopening old wounds now... lol :P

maybe i just have big teeth, and it had nothing at all to do with the braces coming off. :cry:
