Lets see, Where do I begin
with my first day story... I was very excited about getting
the braces put on even though I'm almost 40 years old I had
always had straight teeth till the past year. All of the
sudden my front teeth started to get a very large gap in
between. I went and had many test done to my gums to make
sure that they were ok and I had no bone issues. Everything
went well at the dentist and he gave the OK.
Off to the doctor to have my
braces put on.
Day one - Everything
went awesome at the doctor.. He was very friendly and explained
everything as he went along. My teeth felt very tight after he
was done but NO PAIN.. I thought to myself that this was going
to be awesome. I looked in the mirror and almost feel out of my
car.. How ugly these things were... I picked the metal ones on
top and bottom.. After the end of day one my mouth was starting
to hurt and my lips kept sticking to the braces.. YUCK!!!!!!
Day two - four - OMG
this stinks.. MY MOUTH is killing me and everyone keeps telling
me its going to get better. I have to put wax over all my teeth
so that the braces don't cut into my inside of my lips.. I was
picking something out of my teeth and got the back wire stuck in
my lip. MAN did that hurt..
Day four - My husband
said that he had braces when he was little and that you use the
wax to get you through the first week or so till your mouth gets
use to having braces in there. But I'm scared that I will start
using the wax all the time!
