This is the part I have disliked most at each of my appointments, feels odd when they tug on tender teeth
. He didn't change my ligs the other day, so I managed to get away with it
I always thought that part of the process was going to be easy peasy. I'm so not looking forward to that in April for my dentist appt. cleaning. My teeth are going to be aching I know.
I wonder why I am still in the same wire nearly 4 months in
. I got my lowers put on at about the 3 month mark of having my uppers put on. I still say it was a little too soon because my upper front teeth kept hitting the lower brackets, but that seems to have corrected itself now and I guess that's why he removed my molar build ups on Thursday.
Having just my upper braces was a breeze, since the lowers have been fitted I get more food stuck
. But, already it's becoming 'normal' and I am not feeling as stressed as I did 2-3 weeks ago.
I can understand you feeling nervous about your lowers, but I am sure all will be ok. Do you sometimes wish you were able to get uppers and lowers at the exact same time? I know I do!
Hmm, I'm finding it fascinating the difference in treatments. That's sweet that you already have the build ups removed. I'm not looking forward to that either. The sooner you have the lower braces on though, the sooner the treatment will be over. That's my thinking. I'm kinda wondering if I'm delaying the end since it's taking me so long to get mine on.
Heh, thanks for sharing about the food being stuck more
I so look forward to that.. hehehe. I think flossing is going to be hard though for the lowers as compared to the uppers, but at least I think I should be able to get all my teeth -- I'm still having problems flossing all my upper teeth.
I do sometimes wish I could have had both put on the same time, then everything could be progressing at the same time. Also, the pain of having them put on would only happen once, instead of twice!!!
