Risa from Trinidad & Tobago
My name is Risa, and Iím 21
years of age. Iíve been contemplating whether to get braces
yes or no for a numerous amount of years now and today was
my very first day with them on!
At least Iíve been given
separators (rubber bands between molars) and the first couple of
brackets for the front teeth, top and bottom jaws. Next week,
Iím due to put on the rest of brackets (as soon as the
separators are removed) and wired up! My experience thus
far? Painful (I canít really take pain, but Iím doing fine)! But
at least not as painful as I was preparing for.
Archwired.com helped me prepare
for the best and the worstÖ I read all the various articles and
took heed of all the advice given. My first couple of
minutes with the brackets on my teeth felt so awkward!!! They
kept rubbing against my lips, and felt soooooo uncomfy!
Iím getting a little adjusted
to it as the hours pass alongÖ canít wait to hear what my
boyfriend has to say! Heís scared to kiss me already! LoL!
My friends and family are
anxious to see me in my new ďstyleĒ, and so am I when I get the
wire inserted and rubberbands placedÖ Iím ďbracingĒ myself!
This website has been very helpful in understanding the
techniques used in applying and wearing bracesÖ treatment span
and foods to avoid and stock up on.
Thanks to them, I know what to
eat from what I canít! Iím pretty excited to see the end
results! A note to anyone wishing to get bracesÖ the
earlier, the better! And the results (Iím assuming!) will be
fantastic! My friends are very supportive and funny at the same
time! At least Iím making them laugh!
