It is indeed weird. For the past two years, I've endured the names brace face, metal mouth, robot girl and a whole lot more. And all because I had braces! It's actually a funny story because I had retainers to begin with and my doctor told me that would be it. But because I refused to wore my retainers before and after I ate, I ended up going to the next step- BRACES!
I'm taking them off on December 31st, so it's kind of a long wait for me! But I cannot even begin to tell you how successful this transition has been in my life. I'm loving the results of modern technology on my life and how it's so easy to get your teeth fixed! If you're honestly considering braces but you really don't want to wear it for a year or two, it's definitely worth it!
When I first went to the orthodontists to get them on, I was scared beyond belief. A lot of kids at my school had braces and kept telling me about painful the transition was. In all honestly, the application of the braces itself does not hurt at all!! However, a day after getting the contraption on, and you will start to feel real pain. I think I lost about 9 pounds when I first got my braces because I refused to eat anything! It just hurt that badly.
I've wanted straighter and whiter teeth ever since I knew I could have them, and when the doctor told me I could get braces I was a bit hesitant. Were the two years really worth it? YES THEY TOTALLY WERE! But am I glad to finally be taking them off? YES, I AM MORE THAN EAGER TO RIP THE NASTIES OFF MY TEETH!
