The process has begun

I have to warn you this will not be the most flattering picture you will ever see of me. Yesterday was my first orthodontic appointment for my braces. He put the top ones on and then 4-6 months they will put the bottom ones on. This is going to be a 2 - 2 1/2 year process. They warned me that my mouth will be a lil soar for a few days. A lil soar!, that's an understatement.OMG,my mouth feels like a toothache all over my mouth. I can't eat anything that is hard to chew cuz it hurts so bad.I might be living on ice cream for the next few days which I guess isn't so bad.Except for all the sugar that I am not suppose to be eating.Oh well guess I gotta do what I gotta do.Better get going and try and get something done today.Hope everyone is having a wonderful day.The sun is shining here and it's beautiful.Until next time,

Bless your heart! I hope the pain goes away soon. I have never had braces so I can't even imagine.

The time will just fly by!
I had mine put on when I was 18 years old...and I remember my inside cheeks being torn to shreds...so take my advice and use the wax that they give you and some orajel...I will releive the pain.
Your beautiful smile will be worth the pain...trust me!

I'm with you too. I had mine when I was an adult. Try to take a pain reliever about an hour before your next appt. It helps :)

Oh poor you! I too had braces as an adult......also when in HS....so I had the pleasure of having them twice! The second time around my teenage son had them too.....like mother like son.....I know the pain....but try to think of the outcome!

I remember that pain like it was yesterday. My mom took me out to eat after I got my braces, I couldn't even bit into my hamburger, it hurt so bad. It will get better...the teeth will be a little sore after tightening them at your visits but not as bad as the first time. Hang in there.
