So, today, I got my top braces on!
So, I went to my orthodontist at like 9:50 this morning. I went in on time, but there were complications.
So, you know I said about that dodgy tooth that had to come out? Yeah, well we rang my dentist about it and they were like “no, we haven’t heard anything “. So, the tooth didn’t come out.
Up to this appointment, I was stressing that I wasn’t going to get them on. But, thankfully, when I got to my orthodontist, he was just like, “So, we’ll put the brackets onto your top teeth, missing out the tooth that has to come out. Then we’ll put on this temporary wire. Then, when the other tooth comes out, we’ll put a proper wire on it.”
So, what they do is, they put this thing in your mouth that holds your lips open, then they suck out the moisture. Then they apply glue to your teeth to hold the brackets in place. Next they use this light to like dry the glue. Then they put in the wires and add your chosen colour of band (I chose pink)
then… I got spacers (dun dun DUNNNNNN!!!!!) So, these are to make space for the back wire. I’ll do another post when these come out.
Do you have braces? Let me know in the comments below!
