I had my ortho appt today and I got braces. I was told I would have clear on top and metal on bottom, but when I got there they had all clear. So yayyy they are all clear. They are the sapphire crystal ones that are super clear. Getting them on wasnt so bad except I have a real sensitive tooth to cold water and air...and lets just say..that was not fun! I hated that thing that kept my mouth open too! It left a sore in my mouth. Everything went smooth I suppose. I was the first person in this paticular office to get these kind of brackets so I had a lot of "lookers". That was pretty annoying! But its over and I have them on. Here are a few quick pics I took. I will update in about a week and see if there is any movement. They told me I would have some quickly, so we shall see! comment and let me know what you think. When I just look with a straight face you really cant tell I have braces at all. So I am pretty pleased. I will say my teeth are hurting already. I took everyones advice and took pain meds before I went in. But they are wearing off now! Ok I gotta go. Update soon. Have a good week.
