Thank you! its gone quite quick this first 10 days, lets hope thats a sign of things to come! I've got a little chart on my wall where i colour in the date of each day i've had braces
Are they waiting for your uppers to get sorted before you get your lowers? I'm just waiting cos i didnt want the full initial shock of a full metal mouth, but i'm going to see if i can get ceramics up at the top, but i suppose it all just depends on money!
Just remember we're all in this for a reason! It'll all be worth it in the end, even if it all feels abit rubbish right now!
Thank you! I'm glad i'm past the worst, i felt like the first 3 days were going to kill me, but things have soo settled down & weirdly, i think i'm starting to fall in love with my braces!
The only problem with eating now is that everything gets soo stuck in them! But biting down is fine, but thats probably because my uppers arent braced yet
Thats awful, i never liked my original dentist, i dont think he sympathised with my fear, i think in the end he took my off his books. I was soo happy to find my new dentist! She's been so much help, the same with her assistant. & i got a lovely woman while she was on maternity leave, who now works in my ortho's office! She says i'm her favourite patient, although i'm sure she says them to them all
Well done on getting your teeth pulled, i was soo happy when i got mine done, i felt like a weight had been lifted off me! I was so happy that as soon as i woke up from the general, i turned to the woman & was like "did i do it?" & then burst into tears when she said yes, which seems so silly now but i never thought i'd get rid of those stupid fangy teeth!
oo-er another manc! from the best city in the UK eh? Well, its my favourite anyway hahaha!
I'm being treated by Mr Hall in Rochdale, he's soo nice, very patient with me, which i like!
Thank you! I've always hated my teeth, i cant wait for all this to be over! I'm actually really excited about getting my uppers braced now! in 18 months it'll all be over! The only thing i'm nervous with is that i'm moving to uni in sept, i hope people dont find it weird that i'm 19 & have braces
