It has been a few weeks since I had my top braces put in and I thought I would do an update and let you guys know how I am getting on with them. It did take me a while to get use to wearing them and trying to avoid certain foods, that I loved, was difficult. There has been literally no pain but I have found them tight at times. Especially when I wake from a night sleep. I must be grinding my teeth during my sleep!
Six weeks went by and it was soon time for my next appointment with the orthodontist.
I sat in the waiting room until the nurse called me in and explained to me what procedures would be done to day. My bottom braces would be fitted, which was exciting. News. I was asked if I wanted to change my brackets to a different colour. I chose to stick with the teal.
The nurse then asked me to put on a pair of plastic glasses and then she cleaned and dried my bottom teeth before she applied the adhesive to them. Then the Orthodontist fixed the metal brackets to my bottom teeth followed by the arch wire.
Once my bottom braces were in place, the orthodontist tightened my top braces. I did feel a bit more pressure as he was tightening them but this only lasted a few moments and then I was done!
