, btw I love you name, very original!!
Hehehe indeed, I did have spacers, first rubber which hurted like HELL and then metal which was not bad at all. I guess it depends on the state of your teeth. For me, my upper teeth did not feel a thing, but my lowers were tortured as they are slightly overcrowded.
Well, I stupidly forgot to bring anything except my phone for the braces bonding session, ah but I think it doesn't matter as long as your ortho doesn't mind it. So I basically spent 2 hours gazing at the wall and the numerous equipments my ortho was using AND freaking out about how they would turn out
Nah, they don't ask you stuff since you would have a cheek retractor and a suction pipe :/ in your mouth. But if you have an ortho who cares highly about your wellbeing, he might ask you if you are alright every 10 min
Word of warning - DO NOT underestimate the power of braces. Seriously 1 hour after the appointment, I felt minimal pain, just a little bit of presure. 3 hours, I was still eating hard things. 5 hours, ouch, all food just turned 'unchewable', my mouth felt as though it on fire, but it was tolerable. THe next day, when I first got up, I forgot that I had braces on and proceeded to brush my teeth, didn't realise that it would be painful. And yes, I followed the ortho's instructions to BRUSH BRUSH AND BRUSH.......ow I really regretted that, it felt as though my teeth would fall out anytime soon.
Also stick to soft foods!! Don't even attempt to eat a raisin (which was what I did 3 hours ago and seriously the pain)
Ok I should shut up now! hehehe Happy BRACES DAY FOR TOMORROW!!!
and yes I shall be your co-miserator(I like that word)
Enjoy every food you can eat now!
