Starting my Braces treatment at 30!

#1 Postby coffeelady » Wed Nov 15, 2017 1:18 pm

Hey all,

Can I just say this site is a lifesaver?! There is not much out there for adults getting braces for the first time!
So I just started my journey with braces, first time getting braces at age 30. On Monday, I got the lovely experience of having spacers put in :shock: , and they went ahead and put on some brackets. Next week I get molar bands, and the next week I have 4 premolar extractions to look forward to(I wanted to wait till after Thanksgiving for that :D ). I am anxious about having a new "normal" for the next two years, but so so excited to finally correct severe crowding issues I've had all my life! I think once I survive the extractions the worst will be over, and then the challenge is just finding the right things to eat. With spacers right now, I'm living on mashed potatoes and yogurt!

Welcome! Some of us are in braces for the second time, like me, but at least we are all adults here -- except when braces are painful, and we feel like babies. :lol:

I have to keep reminding myself that this will be so worth it when it's all done! :HugeGrin: It's good to know I'm not the only adult that's doing this!

Welcome, I got my braces put on a few months before turning 30.. i'm 8 months in and it is one of the best decisions I have ever made.. not the most comfortable, but totally worth it!
