I'm sorry you are feeling so bad. All i had put in at first was a bar (on the back of my bottom teeth) to hold everything in place) and when i heard my self lisp i cried so hard the doctor thought something was seriously wrong with me. (my name also starts with an S so it was extra devastating). I h...

Metal or Ceramic.

So I had my last meeting with my ortho today before surgery. 2 weeks after surgery (which is on 8/18 ) i get my braces put on. To say i have been dreading it is an understatement.
