5th June 2014 – Adult Braces

Had the first adjustment this afternoon and boy did it hurt!  I feel like my teeth are in a vice!!!

Hoping the pain and sensitivity isn’t going to be for as long as when I had them put on but the amount of pulling and tightening going on I wouldn’t be surprised if it did!

In all honesty though the whole process has really not been anywhere near as bad as I expected.  I just keep telling myself this afternoon that it’s a good thing it hurts as that means they are moving….right? :-/

Ortho said I had done a good job of keeping them clean and looking after them so that’s good.  Still struggling on with the vape pen as I don’t want anymore staining!  Think he put a few more bands in there as well today but will have a proper look when I get home.

Will post a photo later 🙂


13th May 2014 – Adult Braces

Today my teeth feel a bit sore again.

Managed to eat a sandwich albeit cut into about 12 pieces! Feeling a bit down about it all today but all I can do is think of the end result.

Canny even eat a grape!! It took me about 15 minutes to eat 2 grapes quartered.  Went shopping for my dress for Sunday but just felt rubbish in everything. Will need to get a dress that will take the attention away from my braces lol awards dinner isn’t the best thing to be going to.  I’m sure it will all be ok though kind of hoping this is just an off day.
